Trump's Tulsa rally may have contributed to Oklahoma's COVID-19 surge

Tulsa, July 10 (RHC)-- Thousands attended U.S. President Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Tulsa in late June and health officials say the event probably contributed to a dramatic surge in coronavirus cases in Oklahoma.

Tulsa County reported 261 confirmed cases on Monday, a new record one-day high, and an additional 206 cases on earlier this week.  County Health Department Director Dr Bruce Dart says the gatherings "more than likely" contributed to the spike.

A reporter who attended Trump's rally is among those who have tested positive for COVID-19, along with six of Trump's campaign staff and two members of the Secret Service.
