OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The rolling average of new Oklahoma coronavirus cases has been more than cut in half, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. The seven-day rolling average of new cases in the state during the past two weeks has declined from 2,233 per day to 1,010.71 while the rolling average of daily deaths fell from 36.8 to 23.4.

Experts attribute the decline in cases to the colder weather keeping people at home and have advised that the amount of testing has also been reduced by these factors.

The Oklahoma State Department of Health on Friday reported 417,345 total virus cases and 4,132 deaths. The department also reported increases from Thursday of 869 cases and 20 more deaths due to COVID-19, the illness caused by the virus.
