The Oklahoma doubling rate was at 21 days, in July. It's now 59 days.
In early August, Oklahoma public health officials were very concerned with summer infection data. The accumulative confirmed cases were at about 19,000 on July 10th. By July 31st the total had doubled again. That trajectory would have resulted in over 1 million live virus sicknesses around the Christmas holiday.
But then the August & September data brought some reprieve. We now have about 95,000 accumulative cases in Oklahoma. That's about 1 of every 40 Oklahomans being confirmed to have contracted the virus, whether they manifested any illness symptoms or not.
If Oklahoma remains at the current doubling rate, by Thanksgiving we'll see another 100,000 new cases. By Mid January we'll see another 200,000 new cases. those are numbers which still trouble hospital administrators and public health agencies. Our hospital beds and medical resources may not be sufficient when that volume materializes.
Fortunately we're seeing many promising developments. the hospitalization rate is dropping. The fatality rate is less than 1/3 of what it had been this past spring. Meds such as that which appears to have given President Trump a very quick relief & recovery is now being made available for free to hospital patients, nationwide.
We've embedded the public health charts from the Oklahoma Dept of Health, for you to further study the data discussed in this article.
