OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma health officials are reporting nearly 100 new cases and six more deaths, taking the state’s COVID-19 death toll to 266.
The number of confirmed cases on Friday topped 4,400. The number of actual infections is thought to be far higher because many people have not been tested.
State health officials on Friday announced a plan to test 90,000 people this month, with a focus on underserved areas in Oklahoma City. Tests will be available even for those not displaying symptoms.
Meanwhile, Oklahoma’s governor planned to visit a fitness center and a department store that reopened last week.
