The Arkansas Health Department reports Arkansas’s COVID-19 case count hit 80,755 today, up 809 from yesterday’s count.

The increase included 788 new confirmed cases and 21 more probable cases. (The former are based on PCR tests; the latter on antigent tests.)

19 more deaths were reported, for a total of 1,285.

Tests for the day appeared to be around the 8,000 mark.


I’ll post the more detailed summary when it arrives.

The line is open.


Here is the fuller report.

The governor spins and grins:

“There are 809 new confirmed & probable COVID-19 cases in AR. Our hospitalizations and cases are down from yesterday, but we must continue working to decrease these numbers. We can all do our part by wearing a mask & practicing social distancing.“


Meanwhile, Play Ball!
