Arkansas Hits New Record for a 1-Day Increase in Virus Cases

Sept. 4, 2020, at 6:45 p.m

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) Arkansas on Friday reported its greatest one-day increase in new coronavirus cases as the University of Arkansas moved to restrict campus activities and large parties off-campus to combat a growing outbreak.

The Department of Health reported 1,094 new confirmed cases of the virus that causes COVID-19, bringing the state's total since the pandemic began to 64,175. The state reported an additional 111 cases through antigen testing.

The number of people who have died from COVID-19 rose by 12 to 873. The state also reported 11,254 tests conducted Thursday, its largest in one day. The number of people hospitalized decreased by 24 to 401.

The spike in cases comes as health officials said they're worried about the possibility of the outbreak growing over Labor Day weekend, especially on college campuses.
