Oklahoma has the 16th most confirmed COVID-19 deaths per capita of any state.

The state with the 15th most deaths/capita is Rhode Island which has done 4150 tests per 1 million residents. Oklahoma has done 497 tests per million residents.

States with the least tests performed per 1 million inhabitants

#46. Texas: 1650
#47. Mississippi: 1607
#48. Alabama: 1585
#49. South Carolina: 1228
#50. Oklahoma: 497

From: https://coronavirus.1point3acres.com/

If that's true, not only is Oklahoma dead last in testing, but it's dead last by a lot.


Other forms of measurements where Oklahoma is doing poorly...


States with the highest COVID-19 hospitalization rate

#1. Mississippi: 30.9%
#2. Oklahoma: 30.5%


States with the highest COVID-19 death rate

#1. Vermont: 5.0% (somewhat of a fluke, I think most deaths are from a single nursing home that got hit hard)
#2. Washington: 4.3%
#3. Oklahoma & Louisiana: 4.2%


States with the highest daily increase in cases on April 1

#1. Idaho: 27.4%
#2. Oklahoma: 26.9%


States with the highest % of tests reporting positive results

#1. Michigan: 44.0%
#2. New Jersey: 42.3%
#3. New York: 37.9%
#4. Oklahoma: 36.6%


Most states that have a similar amount of deaths per capita as Oklahoma have both significantly higher rates of testing to find people that are infected and get them to quarantine, and more government measures to contain the spread (stay at home orders/closing of non-essential businesses).

1000s more tests have become available, so Oklahoma has some fast catching up to do in relation to other states.

Some cities, such as Ponca City, were absolutely deplorable about refusing to shut down even after several positive COVID-19 cases were reported. It's shut down now, but the county Ponca City is in has more positive cases than most other counties.

Hopefully those tests start getting put to use soon then, in the last few days, about 90% of people tested in Oklahoma have been found positive for COVID-19.

My friend couldn't get tested for Corona even though he had fever and was coughing. He is doing better. Oklahoma is now able to do test results in state, so people shouldn't have to wait as long for results to come back. https://www.ocolly.com/news/osu-diag...32a3305fe.html

At least Stitt hasn't been as bad with the virus crisis as Mississippi Gov. Reeves.

Stitt just kind of made a fool of himself with his going out to eat stunt and then recommending the stay at home order like a day or two days later. I think he has done ok since then. Not perfect but at least he got the message pretty quick that this was not a small thing.

Reeves has been just flat out defiant about this thing. Mississippi is getting ready to get hit hard. Probably this week.

By the way it looks like a lot of the negative test results from Oklahoma weren't being reported, so the % of positive cases isn't so bad. It's more like 10-15%.

The percentage of cases that are being hospitalized or that have ended in death is still very high though, which makes me suspect that a lot of mild cases aren't being detected.

Cowboy Bill Watts and Championship Wrestling went out on WKY-4 OKC many decades ago. I suspect more Oklahomans more fondly remember Danny Hodge, who is still alive. I hope he his practicing social distancing.
