DALLAS– Texas did not report everyday counts of COVID-19 cases nor fatalities Sunday as health officials worked to upgrade the electronic system they use to process laboratory reports.
The Texas Department of State Health Services said the Sunday counts will be published Monday after the “scheduled upgrade” is finished.
On Saturday, the department reported 9,539 news cases of COVID-19 and another 268 deaths connected to the disease triggered by the unique coronavirus. That brought the state to 430,485 confirmed cases and 6,837 casualties.
The true number of cases in Texas is likely greater because many people have not been tested, and research studies recommend individuals can be contaminated and not feel ill.
For many people, the coronavirus triggers mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clean up in two to three weeks. For some, especially older grownups and individuals with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia and death. The huge majority of individuals recuperate.
