In Pottawatomie County the total number of COVID-19 cases have more than doubled in a month. As of Tuesday, according to the Oklahoma State Department of Health, there are now 970 total COVID-19 cases on the books in the county. At this time last month, the county recorded 427 cases.

Though this time last month two COVID-19 deaths were added to the count in the same week, the current tally in the county remains at nine.

As of the 11 a.m. report released Tuesday there are 184 active COVID-19 cases in Pott. County. Of them, 106 are in Shawnee, which is only six more than reported in town last month at this time.

Of those, 513 cases are or have been in Shawnee, with 399 recovered, with eight of the nine total deaths being from Shawnee.

The Health Department reports there are 65,053 confirmed positive cases of COVID-19 in Oklahoma right now. At this time last month, the number was around 41,400.

The overall number of Oklahomans hospitalized for COVID-19 during the pandemic has been 5,137. As of Sept. 4, there are 472 in the hospital due to COVID-19.

Reports indicate 854 Oklahomans have died as a result of COVID-19.

One additional death was identified in Tuesday's report, but no deaths were identified in the past 24 hours. The death was from Tulsa County — a male in the 65 or older age group.

The three most populated counties remain at the top of the list in numbers of cases. At just more than 22 percent of the state’s cases, Tulsa and Oklahoma Counties are nearly tied.
