Oklahoma governor orders day of prayer for Covid but no mask mandate

Unread post by AHE »

In an announcement, Mr Stitt said Oklahomans should pray to God amid the pandemic, which has seen some 200,000 people in the state contract the coronavirus, and almost 2,000 lose their lives.

The day of prayer has been planned for Thursday, with churches and other places of worship due to host those who take part.

There has, meanwhile, been no statewide mandate on masks, despite new Covid-19 cases increasing by 18 per cent over the past two weeks, according to the Associated Press, and demands from Democrats and medial officials.

On Monday alone, the state recorded another 2,200 coronavirus cases and seven deaths, as Mr Stitt announced the prayer day.

Mr Stitt has refused to order a statewide mandate on masks, and instead called on Oklahomans to exercise ‚Äúpersonal responsibility‚ÄĚ, even as cases continued to spike.
