OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma health officials reported 461 new cases of COVID-19 Sunday, but no additional deaths linked to the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.

The Oklahoma State Department of Health said the state has had a total of 428,997 cases of the disease and 4,534 deaths from it. The number of active coronavirus cases confirmed by a test in the state fell by 92 Sunday to 12,286.

The actual number of cases is believed to be far higher because many people haven’t been tested and some who get sick don’t show symptoms.

More than 11% of Oklahoma’s population has been fully vaccinated against the coronavirus, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. More than 1.2 million Oklahomans have received at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine.
