The testing statistics show a radically increasing 'doubling rate' of confirmed China Coronavirus cases in Oklahoma. The summer spike receded from a 23-day doubling rate to a 59-day doubling of cases during the fall season. But as November came, the rate has moved to a current 48-day doubling of total Oklahoma cases.

Without access to proper medical resources, about 10% of those infected will face a compounded difficulty. It's the one legitimate area of public health where moderating the spike is a rational argument for public cooperation.
