Officials: Reopening not cause of second virus peak

According to Health Secretary Nate Smith, only 3.5% of new cases were a result of reopening measures. This news came as Arkansas ramped up testing and started to see a second peak.

Gov. Asa Hutchinson gave his daily press briefing from Jonesboro on Wednesday and included data specific to the northeastern region of Arkansas.

For the state, there were an additional 97 coronavirus (COVID-19) cases for a total of 6,277 positive tests with 1,733 of those being active. Both hospitalizations and deaths rose by one for a total of 108 and 120 respectively.

With 108 hospitalizations, the second peak has almost reached the all-time high of 109 that took place in April.
