OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma on Saturday reported an additional 580 cases of the coronavirus. The Oklahoma State Department of Health said that the additional cases bring the state’s total number of reported cases to 15,645.

The actual number of cases is believed to be far higher, but many people haven’t been tested and some who get the disease don’t show symptoms even though they can still spread it.

Oklahoma reported no additional deaths on Saturday. The state’s total number of reported deaths from COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus, remained at 398.

The department reports that 11,965 Oklahomans have recovered from the virus.
