LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - There are an additional 772 reported coronavirus cases in Arkansas and 14 additional deaths due to COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus, the Arkansas Department of Health reported on Saturday.

The department said there are 48,811 confirmed coronavirus cases and 535 deaths, up from 48,039 cases and 521 deaths reported on Friday. The true number of cases in Arkansas is likely higher because many people have not been tested, and studies suggest people can be infected and not feel sick.

The department reports 40,977 people have recovered from the virus and that there are 7,299 active cases, meaning they don’t include people who have died or recovered.
