- Starr County Memorial Hospital is overrun with coronavirus cases, and hospitals elsewhere in Texas and in nearby states are also full, officials said.
- The county's health authority said the "situation is desperate" and "there is nowhere to put these patients."
- He said that for some patients "we believe they will be better taken care in the love of their own family and home rather than thousands of miles away dying alone."
- Starr County had successfully avoided a large outbreak in the pandemic's early days. Some officials said the Texas governor's decision to reopen the state was the reason for the surge.
