There have been 20,745 Oklahomans test positive for coronavirus COVID-19 in 76 counties and 424 deaths in 48 counties, according to Oklahoma State Department of Health figures on Monday, July 13, 2020. 

ENID, Okla. — The number of COVID-19 cases in Oklahoma surpassed the 20,000 mark over the weekend and increased by another 510 on Monday, according to the Health Department, which also reported the first pediatric death in the state associated with the virus.

The death of a child in the 5-17 age group in Comanche County was reported Sunday, July 12, by the Oklahoma State Department of Health, which stated in an email Monday it "mourns with the family for their tragic loss of a child."

“I was deeply saddened to learn of the loss of the state’s first child impacted by COVID-19 since the pandemic arrived in Oklahoma," said Lance Frye, Oklahoma interim health commissioner. "Our prayers are with the family and community as they mourn the loss of a young, innocent life."

The 13-year-old dependent of a service member stationed at Fort Sill died Friday at Comanche County Memorial Hospital, according to the public affairs office for Fort Sill Army Base in Lawton.

“Our entire Lawton Fort Sill community is deeply saddened. Our greatest condolences go out to the family. Our thoughts and prayers are with them in this difficult and sad time,” said Maj Gen. Ken Kamper, commanding general of Fort Sill and the Fires Center of Excellence.

Two more deaths, both in the 65 and older age group, were reported Monday, a man in Payne County and a woman in Tulsa County. Neither death was in the past 24 hours, according to the OSDH, which did not report exact dates the deaths did occur. 

Frye said it is critical for Oklahomans to partner with the Health Department in following the latest public health guidance to minimize the spread of COVID-19 and "protect our most vulnerable populations."

"Wash your hands often, limit social engagements, and consider wearing a mask where physical distancing is challenging,” he said.

Garfield County now has a total of 108 cases, with four more reported Monday, three of those new cases in Enid to push the city's overall total past the 100 mark to 101, according to OSDH data. Twenty-six of those Enid cases were in the last seven days, based on OSDH data, with 28 remaining active.

St. Mary's Regional Medical Center has four patients with COVID-19 and Integris Bass Baptist Health Center has three patients, according to spokeswomen with the hospitals.

So far in July, Garfield County has seen an increase of 40 cases, one more than the number of cases in the entire month of June, according to OSDH data. The number of cases for the county was at 68 on July 1 and was at 108 on Monday, according to the OSDH.

Also on Monday, Pond Creek in Grant County, recorded its first official case of COVID-19.
