Arkansas health officials say the state has 572 newly confirmed COVID-19 cases and nine additional deaths due the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.
The Arkansas Department of Health on Sunday said there are 49,383 confirmed cases in the state. The death toll stands at 544.
The department says 41,452 people have recovered from the virus and there were 7,387 active cases Sunday.
The true number of coronavirus cases in Arkansas is likely higher because many people have not been tested, and studies suggest people can be infected and not feel sick.
