LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson said Friday that the state was reporting its largest single-day increase yet in cases of the coronavirus among those who are not in prison. The state is reporting 669 new cases among people in the community and nine new cases among people in prison, bringing the total of newly reported cases to 678 on Friday. Since the pandemic began in March, the state has reported 18,740 cases. The true number of cases though is likely higher because many people have not been tested, and studies suggest people can be infected and not feel sick.
