The number of deaths from COVID-19 in Oklahoma has risen to 6,090, with the total deaths reaching 313, the Oklahoma State Department of Health reported.

About two thirds of the deaths have occurred in six counties – Oklahoma, Tulsa, Cleveland, Washington, Wagoner, Delaware and Caddo. Nearly 80% percent of people who have died were aged 65 or older.

Positive coronavirus cases have been confirmed in all but four of Oklahoma’s 77 counties.
