LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) – The number of reported coronavirus cases has increased by 803 in Arkansas and there are eight more deaths due to COVID-19, the illness caused by the disease.
The Arkansas Department of Health on Saturday reported 73,141 confirmed cases of the virus and 1,181 deaths.
The actual number of cases in Arkansas is likely higher because many people have not been tested, and studies suggest people can be infected and not feel sick.
The department reported 6,101 confirmed active cases of the virus in the state.
