More than 500 new coronvirus cases reported in Arkansas


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — More than 500 new coronavirus cases are being reported and 10 more deaths due to COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus. The Arkansas Department of Health on Saturday reported 511 additional cases to bring the total of confirmed cases to 15,142 and said 224 people have died. The department had reported a record increase of 703 cases on Friday. The actual number of people who have contracted the virus is likely higher because many people have not been tested, and studies suggest people can be infected and not feel sick.
