On Friday, the Oklahoma Health Dept. Reported the lowest number of confirmed new illnesses since June 7th, 2020.
This is now a major trend downward, as cases are far below the rates of just 1 month ago. Just over 200 confirmed test results came back positive on Friday's report. That's about a twentieth of what kind of daily numbers we saw just after New Year's Day.
The spread doubling rate has now dropped to about 61 days. That's the longest span on record since the mid March pandemic was declared. About 10% of Oklahomans have tested positive in the state database. Vaccines have now been administered for about 6 weeks. Children in Oklahoma have proven to be the most resistant to the sickness or likely to spread it to others.
CNN has kept a very helpful database of Covid testing results and medical numbers for the 50 states, and also tabulates the US territories. Their numbers show Oklahoma as having the 10th highest saturation of infections, per capita (approaching 10% of our population). But Oklahoma is also the 10th lowest fatalities from Covid, per capita. The comparison of those 2 data points reveal a massive accomplishment for Oklahoma's public health response & mobilization, and an equally proficient medical services industry.
