Arkansas

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — The Arkansas Department of Health reports an increase of more than 400 confirmed coronavirus cases and one additional death due to COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus. The department late Sunday reported at least 15,561 cases and 225 deaths, up from 15,142 cases and 224 deaths reported on Saturday. 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. The department said 10,456 people have recovered from the virus.
