Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson said that “for the first time in a long time” the number of active cases in the state decreased.
The 420 new Covid-19 cases reported Wednesday is the lowest number of active cases the state has seen in sometime, Hutchinson said.
Hospitalization rates have gone down as well, he said. At least 275 people remain hospitalized.
At least 21,197 cases of coronavirus have been reported in the state and at least 277 people have died from the virus.
One thing to note: These figures were released by the state of Arkansas and may not line up exactly in real time with CNN’s database drawn from Johns Hopkins University and the Covid Tracking Project.
