OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The number of reported coronavirus cases in Oklahoma has surpassed 25,000 and more than 450 people have now died due to COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus.

The Oklahoma State Department of Health on Saturday reported a total of 25,056 confirmed cases and 451 deaths, an increase of 916 cases and six deaths from Friday.

The actual number of positive cases is likely much higher since many people haven’t been tested and some who get the disease don’t show symptoms, but can still spread it. The department reports 19,186 people have recovered.
