2:41 p.m.: Models estimate state’s virus cases could grow to 3,500 in two weeks, governor says

Models for the spread of covid-19 in Arkansas estimate there could be 3,500 cases of the illness in the state in the next two weeks, Gov. Asa Hutchinson said Friday. The climb to that number would represent an almost ten-fold increase over the total Friday afternoon of 381.

“We at the same time want to do everything we can to beat that modeling,” Hutchinson said. “We also want to prepare for the worst-case scenario.”

Hutchinson said if cases reach 3,500 by mid-April, the state expects 750 people would need hospitalization.
