Four COVID-19 cases for Freedom
July 22, 2020
The Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) discovered a number of cases that had not been entered in their database the first of this week. This resulted in a large jump in cases. OSDH said this was not because of a spike in cases but a mistake in entering earlier cases.
As of Wednesday morning, OSDH is listing a total of 15 positive cases for Woods County with 11 recovered. However, this is still suspect as the figures don’t add up. In the city database, Alva is listed with 10 positive cases and nine recovered. Freedom shows four positive cases with none recovered. That doesn’t add up to 15, and no other Woods County towns appear on the list. The recovered cases also don’t add up with nine for Alva, none for Freedom and 11 for the county. It appears the OSDH still has some issues to fix.
The OSDH stated on Wednesday’s notification, “The total number of confirmed positive cases of COVID-19 in Oklahoma includes confirmed cases identified as part of the backlog associated with system outages over the past few days. For those backlogged confirmed positive cases, complete demographic information is not yet available. We expect this to be remedied in the coming week.”
As of the Wednesday morning advisory, there are 28,065 confirmed positive cases of COVID-19 in Oklahoma.
There are 13 additional deaths. Two deaths were identified in the past 24 hours.
Three in McCurtain County, one female and two males in the 65 or older age group.
Two in Muskogee County, one female and one male in the 65 or older age group.
