OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma health officials reported 1,349 new cases of COVID-19 Sunday and eight more deaths from the disease caused by the new coronavirus.

That raised the state’s totals to 124,111 case and 1,345 deaths since the outbreak struck at the start of March, the Oklahoma State Department of Health said.

Of those cases, 15,684 are active, an increase of 551 from Saturday, while 107,082 people diagnosed with the disease have recovered, according to state health officials.

However, the true number of cases in Oklahoma is likely higher because many people have not been tested, and studies suggest people can be infected and not feel sick.

For most people, the coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and a cough that clear up in two to three weeks. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia and death.
