As the overall COVID-19 case numbers decreased in Arkansas in February, as did hospitalizations and patients on ventilators. The numbers reported during the month were similar to those reported in late September. The Arkansas Department of Health also conducted a data cleaning at the end of the month that removed nearly 200 deaths from the data.
