DE QUEEN, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas reported 751 new cases of the coronavirus and four more deaths related to the virus. Gov. Asa Hutchinson said at a Friday news conference in De Queen that the state is now reporting a total of 26,803 cases and 313 deaths from COVID-19, the illness caused by the virus. The number of people hospitalized on Friday in Arkansas was at 402, an increase by eight from the day before. The true number of cases in Arkansas though is likely higher because many people have not been tested, and studies suggest people can be infected and not feel sick.
