April 19: Arkansas at 1,781 cases, not counting 348 at Cummins Unit

In a Sunday press conference from the state capitol, Governor Asa Hutchinson and Secretary of Health Dr. Nate Smith updated the public on the latest numbers. Saturday, 1,739 were reported to have COVID-19 in Arkansas. 230 additional positive cases were at Cummins Unit, a state prison in Lincoln County. On Sunday, those numbers increased to 1,781 across the state and 348 total positives at Cummins. Dr. Smith said these two numbers had not been combined, meaning Arkansas has 2,129 confirmed cases overall as of Sunday at 1:30 PM.

The death count for the state rose from 38 on Saturday to 40 on Sunday. The two new deaths were under 65. One of the deaths was the state’s first healthcare worker to die from COVID-19. Dr. Smith refused to release information about the healthcare worker’s location “out of respect for the family.”
