Data Shows COVID-19 OK Spike

COVID-19 infections have spiked aggressively.

We've been tracking coronavirus-related data since March, and our data clearly shows a change in direction in infection rate - the pivot occurs on June 8.

The clear majority of reported infections are among 18-35-year-olds. This age group has seen a notable uptick in infections over the last two weeks.

Why is this happening? The state has "opened up," meaning more people are coming into contact with one another. Unfortunately, many Oklahomans are not taking the necessary precautions when coming into contact with others.
