COVID-19 in Oklahoma: cumulative and daily graphs

Every morning, the Oklahoma State Department of Health posts updated figures relating to COVID-19 testing and results in Oklahoma. I've put the information released thus far into two graphs, which are shown below.

First, this graphic shows the cumulative figures in Oklahoma so far during the COVID-19 outbreak. This is based on OSDH numbers for confirmed cases, deaths from confirmed cases, and hospitalization of patients with confirmed cases of COVID-19.

Total to-date confirmed cases, deaths, and hospitalizations
This graph shows daily net changes in each of those categories: new confirmed cases, new deaths from confirmed cases, and net changes in total daily hospitalization figures. Caveat on the hospitalization line: the OSDH has not published tracking on any patient discharges, so this does not necessarily mean that amount of new patients have been hospitalized on each specific day, but does track the change in current hospitalizations on that day.

Daily changes in new confirmed cases, new deaths, and net increases in hospitalization
All of these figures are specifically confirmed cases of COVID-19. There are dozens to hundreds of suspected cases that have not been confirmed yet, including individuals that are currently hospitalized with suspected cases of COVID-19.

You can find these figures updated daily at, where the Oklahoma State Department of Health continues to release information on the COVID-19 pandemic, including tips for avoiding the spread and what to do if you suspect you are coming down with the virus.
