Starr County COVID-19 cases up by 700% since Halloween
Starr County health officials reported a 700% increase in COVID-19 cases since Halloween.
"In the last four days we had 178 people that tested positive," Starr County Health Authority Dr. Antonio Falcon said. "It's a very sad number to report."
The spike in cases comes as the county prepares for the arrival of Moderna's coronavirus vaccine.
"I sound like a broken record," Starr County Judge Eloy Vera said. "But I cannot overemphasize how important it is we don't socialize over the holidays."
