Luther, July 13, 2020 — The numbers of Covid-19 in Oklahoma became more human when it was announced Sunday that a child had died from the virus. Although the Oklahoma State Department of Health failed to share any other data about the death, other sources including this gofundme page, indicate the child was a 13-year-old girl in Comanche County.

The girl’s death on Friday is not reflected in today’s numbers reported from OSDH. But here is that data, released Monday, from OSDH.
