OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A coalition of Oklahoma medical professionals says the increase in coronavirus cases is starting to reach central Oklahoma.

Dr. David Kendrick with the Healthier Oklahoma Coalition said on Tuesday that the number of positive tests in Oklahoma County has risen from about 2% on July 2nd to 5.8%.

Members of the coalition say the increase appears to have entered Oklahoma from Missouri and Arkansas, which are 1st and 2nd in the nation in new coronavirus cases per 100,000 population.

Oklahoma ranks 10th in the nation with 11.66 new cases per capita.
