OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says an OHP captain has become the first state trooper in Oklahoma to die of COVID-19.

OHP spokeswoman Sarah Stewart said Tuesday that 58-year-old Capt. Jeffery Sewell of Atoka died Saturday at a Denison, Texas, hospital where he had been treated for the virus for about three weeks.

The state health department on Tuesday reported 1,025 new virus cases and 11 more deaths, bringing the totals to 86,219 cases and 1,018 deaths.

The actual number of cases in Oklahoma is likely higher because many people have not been tested, and studies suggest people can be infected and not feel sick.
