OSDH identified 30 deaths due to COVID-19 in the Sunday report, which pushed the state total past 4,000.

“Every Oklahoma life is precious,” State Health Commissioner Lance Frye said in a press release. “While our cases and hospitalizations come down, we continue to mourn with families that suffer the loss of their loved ones. Please remember to stay vigilant as we continue to battle COVID-19 in our state.”
