Community transmission high, ‘many preventable deaths’ in Oklahoma, White House says

Update 4:10 p.m. Oct. 7: The White House released its latest report and recommendations for Oklahoma’s COVID-19 response, suggesting more communities should reiterate the importance of wearing masks.

“Community transmission has remained high across the state for the past month, with many preventable deaths,” the report says.

Oklahoma is in the red zone for cases, indicating 101 or more new cases per 100,000 population last week, with the tenth-highest rate in the country. Oklahoma is in the red zone for test positivity, indicating a rate at or above 10.1%, with the fifth-highest rate in the country.

Gov. Kevin Stitt’s office released the following statement in response to the report:

"The governor vehemently disputes the editorial opinion included in this week’s Coronavirus Task Force report. Our office immediately reached out to the White House for clarification and was assured that language was not unique to Oklahoma, but rather was included in the reports for dozens of states.

Regardless, the governor maintains that Oklahoma has performed much better than the nation as a whole in terms of protecting our most vulnerable, and the White House agrees with that assertion.

According to the CDC, Oklahoma’s per capita death rate is 59% lower than the national average and 12th-lowest among all states – a significant accomplishment considering the prevalence of comorbidities and underlying conditions in our population.

Governor Stitt has spent months urging Oklahomans to take the personal responsibility to protect themselves and their families by washing their hands frequently, watching their distance from others and wearing a mask."
