TULSA, Okla. — Oklahoma is carrying the COVID-19 omicron surge through February, but cases are trending down, averaging 1,128 new cases per day as of Friday.

Thursday's report from the Oklahoma State Department of Health brought the number of active cases in the state to 11,874.

OSDH said their research shows 98% of the state's cases are due to the omicron variant.

The Tulsa Health Department's latest zip code map shows the weekly rate of active cases per 1,000 residents in the area. Last Wednesday's map shows the majority of the county's 42 zip codes marked red meaning "Severe Risk."

The 3-day average for COVID-19 hospitalizations in the state as of Friday is 1,067, including 53 pediatric hospitalizations.

The state health department included hospital capacity reports in which one outlines the number and percent of "Unoccupied Adult ICU" beds by region, and the other the number and percent of "Unoccupied Adult Inpatient Beds" by region.

The data is self-reported by hospitals and is subject to change on an hourly basis.
