Here are today’s numbers on COVID-19 in the state from the Arkansas Health Department.

Total cases: 901,129, an increase of 1,578 from the number through Wednesday.

Active cases: 16,015, up from 15,778

Deaths: 11,699, an increase of 10.

Hospitalizations: 435, up from 421

Standard disclaimer: Because of the rise in home testing, with results not forwarded to the Health Department, the numbers are believed to undercount state cases, perhaps dramatically.

Help us report on the coronavirus crisis

The COVID-19 pandemic is reshaping all aspects of life in Arkansas. We’re interested in hearing from doctors, nurses and other health care workers; from patients and their families; from people in longterm care facilities and their families; from parents and students affected by the crisis; from people who have lost their job; from people with knowledge of workplaces or communities that aren’t taking appropriate measures to slow the spread of the disease; and more.
