Update: May 21 coronavirus report

The May 21 report from the Oklahoma State Health Department states that there have been six confirmed positive cases of COVID-19 in Haskell County. Five of the individuals have recovered, according to OSHD.
There is a discrepancy in the numbers provided by the state health department.
While the county report states there are a total of six confirmed positive cases in Haskell County, the report which lists cases in municipalities is different. That reports states there have been four confirmed cases in Stigler, two in McCurtain and one in Kinta. The report also states that two of the three individuals in Stigler who tested positive have recovered.
The Stigler News-Sentinel has submitted a request to the state health department, asking for clarification regarding the number of positive cases reported.
Statewide, 5,680 confirmed positive cases were reported on May 21. There have been 304 deaths attributed to the coronavirus in the state. A total of 4,361 individuals have recovered from the coronavirus, according to the health department.
