Arkansas Hospitalizations and Deaths Spiking Again – Texarkana COVID-19 By-The-Numbers for September 3
(AP) — Arkansas has reported a spike in COVID-19 hospitalizations and deaths. The Department of Health on Wednesday said the number of hospitalized coronavirus patients rose by 101 to 1,313. However, a department spokeswoman said part of the increase was due to some hospitalizations not included in Tuesday’s figures. The state’s COVID-19 deaths rose by 35 to 6,969 since the pandemic began. The number of COVID-19 patients on ventilators dropped by 31 to 357, but 522 COVID-19 patients were under intensive care.
