OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma on Saturday reported an additional 901 cases of the coronavirus and 13 more deaths. The Oklahoma State Department of Health says the number of reported cases is now at 47,798. There have been a total of 657 deaths from COVID-19, the illness caused by the virus.

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 spread the virus without feeling sick.

The health department said that as of Saturday, there were 7,234 active cases and 39,907 people have recovered.
