Oklahoma sees 186 new coronavirus cases, no new deaths

June 15, 2020 GMT

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma health officials reported 186 new coronavirus cases Monday with no new deaths due to COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus.

There are now 8,417 confirmed cases with the total death toll unchanged at 359. The health department says 6,578 people have recovered. 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.

For most people, the coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms that clear up within weeks. But for others, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, the highly contagious virus can cause severe symptoms and be fatal.
