    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — A North Little Rock police sergeant who was infected with the coronavirus while on duty has died of COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus, according to Police Chief Tracy Roulston. Sgt. J.L. “Buck” Dancy, 62, died Wednesday after contracting the virus along with other officers during a work-related incident, said Roulston, who declined to discuss the specifics of the incident that resulted in Dancy's infection. “We used contact tracing just like everyone else, and we’ve been able to verify through that process that there’s no doubt that that’s where he ended up making contact,” Roulston said Thursday. “I’ve had about seven or eight officers that tested positive out of this one incident." The state health department on Thursday reported a total of 164,310 confirmed and probable virus cases and 2,555 deaths since the pandemic began. The true number of infections in Arkansas is likely higher because many haven’t been tested, and studies suggest people can be infected and not feel sick. Copyright 2020 The Associated Press.
