OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The rolling average of coronavirus cases in Oklahoma is declining, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.

On Saturday, the rolling average of new cases had fallen by 27.4 during the past two weeks, from 321.4 daily on April 1 to 294 per day on April 15, a drop of 8.5%, according to the data.
