OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma’s official count of coronavirus hospitalizations has hit a new record high and beat the previous one-day high set a day earlier as the virus continues to surge.

Johns Hopkins University data shows that the average daily number of both new cases and new deaths in Oklahoma have risen during the past 14 days.

The state health department reported a total of 1,234 deaths since the pandemic began.
