State's virus cases climb 1,061 in day

Arkansas' count of coronavirus cases rose by 1,061 Saturday, setting a record for the number of cases added in a single day.

The state's cumulative case count increased to 27,864. The death toll from the virus, as tracked by the Department of Health, rose by six, to 319.

The number of Arkansans hospitalized with the virus increased by 10, to 412. Eighty-four of the patients were on ventilators, a number that hadn't changed from a day earlier.

"The record number of new cases is very concerning and may be the result of the July 4th celebrations," Gov. Asa Hutchinson said in a statement.

2. I remember when Republicans

were mocking the Democratically controlled states virus outbreak at the onset, back when we didn't know as much about it. I remember how they politicized the virus. For my part, I take no glee in Republican led states now getting pummeled, I believe in karma.

5. Absolutely. If I had children at home, I wouldn't consider sending them to school as things stand.
