LOWER THAN EXPECTED - Arkansas health officials say the number of coronavirus cases in the state has risen to  837 and COVID-19 deaths increased to 16. Gov. Asa Hutchinson said the number of cases now includes  14  people  at a  federal prison in Forrest City.  He also explained that Arkansas’ COVID-19 case  numbers  are  well below  than  what  earlier projections predicted.

"Today under the projections we were supposed to be at 2, 000 cases," Hutchinson explained. "So instead of 2,000 cases we have 837 cases."
