ENID, Okla. — Four Northwest Oklahoma men — one from Enid and three from Fairview — were among the 48 statewide COVID-19-related deaths reported Thursday by the Oklahoma State Department of Health.
The state also saw 1,677 new cases, a 0.4% increase, Thursday, taking the total to 409,401, with 23,111 active, a single-day decrease of 546, and 382,342 recovered, including 2,175 since Wednesday's report.
There have been 3,948 deaths in the state, just under 1% of the cases, in which COVID-19 was the cause or a contributing factor, OSDH reported.
Of the 48 deaths statewide, 41 were in the 65 and older age group: two men and five women in Tulsa County; two men and three women in Oklahoma County; two men and one woman in Cleveland County; three Major County men; one man each and one woman each in Coal, Creek and Pottawatomie counties; two Garvin County men; two women each in Muskogee and Wagoner counties; one man each in Beckham, Comanche, Custer, Dewey, Noble, Ottawa, Roger Mills and Stephens counties; and one woman each in Carter, Lincoln and Mayes counties.
Seven of the deaths were in the 50-64 age group: men in Garfield, Oklahoma and Seminole counties and women in Adair, Kay, Mayes, McCurtain and Payne counties.
Cumulative COVID-19-positive hospitalizations in Oklahoma stood at 23,020 Thursday, according to OSDH.
In Enid, St. Mary’s Regional Medical Center reported treating nine COVID-19 patients with no new deaths. Integris Bass Baptist Health Center reported Thursday it had 15 patients and also had no deaths.
Cases in Garfield County on Thursday increased by 38 for a total of 7,305, with 349 active and 6,891, or 94.3%, recovered, according to OSDH. The majority of the cases — 6,452, or 88.3% — have been in Enid, which reported 328 active cases and 6,065 recovered.
Of the county’s 65 deaths, 59 have been in Enid, according to the OSDH list of city data. Five have been in Lahoma and one each in Garber and Covington. The discrepancy between county and city totals pre-dates the Garber, Lahoma and Covington deaths and most likely falls in the Enid count, as more widely shared county numbers are accurate, according to OSDH public relations firm Saxum. Deaths in Enid by ZIP code match the county numbers, according to OSDH.
Other Northwest Oklahoma county case increases Thursday included nine in Woodward, seven in Major, six in Kingfisher, two each in Grant and Woods and one in Noble. Blaine County reported no new cases, and Alfalfa County saw a reduction of one case.
