Oklahoma Reports 2,342 New COVID-19 Cases on Thursday |  News

According to the CDC, Oklahoma is seventh in the nation for new cases each day per 100,000 residents. The statistic is worrisome to Dr. Dale Bratzler, chief COVID-19 officer for the University of Oklahoma. Statewide, a total of 1.6 million Oklahomans are fully vaccinated, leaving about half of Oklahoma’s adults unvaccinated and at a heightened risk for COVID-19. “We’re certainly seeing a big surge in COVID cases in Oklahoma,” he said. “On Nov. 6 of 2020, there were 1,416 new cases per day, then the following day we had a huge spike in new cases per day. On Feb. 11 we had 1,862 new cases per day, and now in Oklahoma we are at 1,832 new cases per day … What I’m concerned about is, we are way ahead of new cases per day then we were before school started last year. So, I do have real concern.”

As of Thursday, there were 888 people hospitalized with COVID-19 across Oklahoma, 255 of them in the ICU. Forty of those 888 are pediatric hospitalizations. The state’s separate reporting and investigation system has recorded 7,531 confirmed COVID-19-related deaths, as of Wednesday

According to data released Wednesday night, 76% of Oklahoma’s COVID-19 hospitalizations in the last 30 days were people who were not fully vaccinated. Unvaccinated 18-64 year olds accounted for 48% of COVID hospitalizations, while vaccinated 18 – 64 year olds made up only 6.1% of COVID hospitalizations in that timeframe. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s provisional death count, there have been 8,766 COVID-related deaths in the state.

The city reported no additional COVID-related deaths Wednesday, leaving Norman’s COVID-19 death toll at 198 as of Wednesday. The state’s reporting system is investigating deaths from the start of the pandemic until now, and does not release the exact date of a COVID-related death. The 270 new cases brought Norman’s cumulative case count to 14,995.

On Wednesday, the City of Norman reported 270 new COVID-19 cases over the past week, the highest new case report the city has seen in months. The state provides updated city-specific case numbers each Wednesday. City Numbers
