OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. (KSWO) - The Oklahoma State Department of Health has issued a correction to its Coronavirus numbers on Friday.

OSDH said 1,711 new COVID-19 cases were reported, instead of the 3,003 initially reported.

In a news release sent Friday afternoon, Interim Health Commissioner Keith Reed said duplicate test results reported in the agency’s electronic lab were responsible for the issue.

The seven-day average of new cases now stands at 1,376.

The Centers for Disease Control also reported 10 new deaths from the virus on Friday.

12,070 people in Oklahoma have died from the virus since the pandemic began.
