Texas Virus Cases Top 10,000 a Day for First Time Since February
(Bloomberg) -- Texas logged more than 10,000 in daily new virus cases for the first time in almost six months as the latest wave of the pandemic intensifies across the second-most populous U.S. state.
The caseload surged by 10,086 in the past 24 hours, a 55% increase from Tuesday’s addition and the highest since Feb. 9, state health department figures showed.
Hospitalizations, meanwhile, have more than doubled this month to 5,292, the data showed. Intensive-care occupancy by virus patients has pushed above 10% in three of the state’s 22 trauma service areas, and one of those regions has zero ICU capacity left.
