The headline came across my Twitter feed and my eyes just froze. Oklahoma reported 4,741 new coronavirus cases which obliterated the previous single-day record. I am still in a state of shock and tried to confirm the number at https://coronavirus.health.ok.gov/. Unfortunately the state’s webpage has numbers are only updated to 11.06.20.
If today’s reported numbers turn out to be accurate it’s going to be a long, cold, nasty winter.
The Oklahoma State Department of Health reported 4,741 new infections on Saturday, shattering the previous daily record of 2,101 that was set on Thursday, and moving Oklahoma’s 7-day average to near 2,000 new cases. There have been 136,492 cases of COVID-19 diagnosed in Oklahoma since the pandemic began.Oklahoma officials place responsibility on state residents after huge surge in COVID cases — https://oklahoman.com/article/5675726/oklahoma-officials-place-responsibility-on-state-residents-after-huge-surge-in-covid-cases
The record number of new infections today is confirmed.
Tomorrow I go shopping to stock up the pantry.
One thought on “Meanwhile in Oklahoma – 11.07.20 (exponential growth)”
This is what I have been anticipating. Especially in the colder climates where people are indoors so much.
