Arkansas Hits New One Day Total of COVID-19 Cases

From KTLO/Associated Press

Arkansas has reached another one-day record for new Ccoronavirus cases, a spike the state’s health official says is driven by the northwest region.

The Health Department said Thursday at least 6,538 people tested positive for the virus that causes COVID-19, an increase over the 6,277 reported a day earlier. The new cases mark the biggest one-day increase among non-incarcerated individuals.

State Health Secretary Dr. Nathaniel Smith said at least 40% of the new cases came from Benton and Washington counties in northwest Arkansas. The state’s deaths rose to 125.
