OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma health officials on Wednesday reported a record one-day spike in the number of positive COVID-19 cases, with 482 positive tests reported in the last 24 hours.

That’s the third day in the last week the state reported record one-day increases, including the previous high of 478 new cases on Sunday and 450 on Thursday, according to Oklahoma State Department of Health numbers.

The agency also reported an additional COVID-19 death on Wednesday, a Garfield County woman in the 36-to-49 age group. That brings Oklahoma’s statewide death toll to 372 and the total number of confirmed positive cases to more than 11,510.

The actual number of people who have contracted the virus is likely higher because many people have not been tested, and studies suggest people can be infected and not feel sick.
