Virus cases rise by 731, governor says; increase a record for state

Arkansas saw a record number of new covid-19 cases Friday, including a record number of new cases among the stateís nonincarcerated population, Gov. Asa Hutchinson said.

The total of new cases, 731, includes 207 from correctional facilities. The other 524 are from nursing homes and the general population, including 199 cases from Tysonís facility in Springdale, Hutchinson said.

The counties with the most cases were Washington County, with 220, Benton County with 91, Madison County and Lee County, each with 32, Pulaski County with 25 and Sebastian County with 24. The total number of active cases is 3,764.

Hospitalizations reached a new peak, 203, and five more people died of the virus, bringing the toll to 176.


We're still moving on to phase 2 of reopening on Monday. I don't understand the reasoning behind that move.

1. This is awful

My wife and I are sick of staying home.
We have mostly been in since Jan.
Very glad we did and will keep it up, but it gets tiresome.
Cheers and sympathies to our compatriots.
Thoughts an good wishes to the sick and their families
