LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas health officials say the number of coronavirus tests conducted over the weekend surpassed its recent average. The state on Monday released its testing numbers from a two-day surge campaign as it reported its 50th death from the virus. The surge campaign was aimed at raising the number of tests conducted from a recent average of 1,000 a day to 1,500. The Health Department says it exceeded that goal on Saturday and Sunday. The state on Monday reported at least 3,017 cases, an increase over the 2,941 reported Sunday. The number of deaths rose from 49 to 50.
