Newly reported Texas virus cases total 1,292, 37 more deaths
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — There were 1,292 newly reported coronavirus cases in Texas on Sunday and 37 additional deaths due to COVID-19, the illness caused by the virus, according to state health officials.
The Texas Department of State Health Services reported 735,132 coronavirus cases and 15,522 deaths, up from 733,438 and 15,485 deaths recorded as of Saturday. The true number of cases is likely higher though because many people haven’t been tested and studies suggest people can be infected and not feel sick.
The health department also reported 67,234 active cases of the virus and that 652,376 have recovered while 3,217 people were hospitalized.
For most people, the coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and a cough that clear up in two to three weeks. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia, and death.
