The Arkansas Department of Health is reporting at least 1,013 new positive cases of coronavirus since Wednesday.
That brings the total statewide to at least 36,259 positive cases and at least 386 deaths since the pandemic began, Gov. Asa Hutchinson said during a news conference on Thursday.
Arkansas’ cumulative positivity rate is 8%, at least 107 patients are on ventilators and at least 480 patients are hospitalized, according to Dr. Jose Romero, Arkansas Department of Health Acting Secretary.
Hutchinson said some of the increase was due to delay in reporting.
