Coronavirus cases approach 7,500 in Arkansas; no new deaths


ROGERS, Ark. (AP) — Officials say the number of coronavirus cases continues to grow in Arkansas, particularly in the northwest part of the state. Gov. Asa Hutchinson said at a press conference Monday in Rogers that cases grew by 190, for a total of 7,443 statewide. No new deaths were reported. True infection numbers are likely higher, however, because many people have not been tested and studies suggest people can be infected and not feel sick. The virus causes mild or moderate symptoms that clear up in two to three weeks in most people.
