Texas posts single-day coronavirus death record

Texas reported its highest single-day total of COVID-19-related deaths on Wednesday.

The Lone Star State recorded 313 new fatalities on Wednesday, according to data from the Texas Department of Health and Human Services. Texas, which recorded its first COVID-19 death in March, has now reported at total of 6,190 fatalities.

The new deaths reported Wednesday could have occurred any time in the past 10 days, officials noted.

The increase comes after Texas officials adjusted how COVID-19 deaths are counted. Instead of relying on local and regional public health reports, officials are counting death certificates that list the cause of death as COVID-19. Certificates have to be filed within 10 days of a person's death.

Harris County, where Houston is located, has reported the most deaths at 1,182, followed by Dallas County with 610 and Bexar County with 521.

The state also reported 9,042 newly confirmed coronavirus cases on Wednesday, bringing Texas's total to 403,307. It now trails only California, Florida and New York in infections.

Coronavirus cases in Texas began surging in mid-June before the death toll's rise in July.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) had instituted a statewide mask mandate earlier in July amid the rise in cases and deaths.

The grim milestone for Texas came the same day the U.S. recorded 150,000 COVID-19 deaths.

Three U.S. Army Reserve medical task forces were sent to South Texas earlier this week, The Associated Press noted. Three other active-duty Army medical task forces and five Navy medical teams had been deployed earlier this month.

The Texas Democratic Party released a statement in response to the highest single-day death toll, with spokesman Abhi Rahman saying "the coronavirus is now out of control."

"Instead of following the advice of doctors and experts, Donald Trump and Greg Abbott tried to discredit them to appease their right-wing lobbyist, donors, and base, even things as simple as wearing a mask," he said. "This is emblematic of the modern-day Republican Party: putting the pursuit of power over science and logic."

Did they all pass away on the same day, or were their deaths simply reported on the same day?

Texas hasn't reached herd status yet. Their own fault for getting such a late start. They should have followed NY and NJ example.

With co-vid, herd immunity is not the way to go . . .

Except, there is no evidence of any "herd immunity" developing in either NY or NJ. In fact, those who were supposedly recovered continue to suffer from symptoms and some are dying months later, are suffering multiple infections or relapses and the evidence is that they are not experiencing any longterm immunity either... 

Social distancing and masks are what is working!

Herd immunity will be impossible until we have a vaccine. There's no indication that a COVID infection makes one immune when recovered

EXACTLY!  I grow tired of posting the information about herd immunity and co-vid, so I won't.

Yes he said it's reasonable to assume those with coronavirus have a form of immunity.  He says from what we know it is very likely those that recovered have a degree of protection.

In parts of India, they appear to be achieving herd immunity. Probably not by design, but they are getting it nonetheless.

Herd Immunity Seems To Be Developing In Mumbai's Poorest Areas

Around six in ten people living in some of the biggest slums in the country have antibodies for the novel coronavirus indicating they've recovered from infection, in what appears to be one of the highest population immunity levels known worldwide.

The findings, from a July serological survey of 6,936 people across three suburbs in the country's financial center of Mumbai, may explain why a steep drop in infections is being seen among the closely-packed population, despite new cases accelerating overall in the hard-hit country.

"Mumbai's slums may have reached herd immunity," said Jayaprakash Muliyil, chairman of the Scientific Advisory Committee of National Institute of Epidemiology, and the retired head of one of its premier medical colleges. "If people in Mumbai want a safe place to avoid infection, they should probably go there."

These sort of studies show how silly the reports are the supposedly show how many cases of Covid exist in a country. Per the serologic testing, at least 2 million people in Mumbai alone have had Covid, yet the city reports just over one hundred thousand cases.

Because it is an election year and the hatred for Trump is rabid.

You cannot attain herd immunity without long lasting immunity from the survivors.  Early tests are showing immunity lasting a couple months, if not only a few weeks. 

Herd immunity will not occur until a long lasting vaccine is developed, therefor any attempt at herd immunity will result in unnecessary deaths.

Three recent studies – from China, Britain and now the United States – have called into question how long people carry antibodies after infection.

Until the question of immunity after infection is answered, supporting herd immunity is the same as supporting hundreds or even thousands of unnecessary deaths.

Status, schmatus.  Gov. Abbott has been too busy kissing Trump's behind to give one flying fart about the out of control increase in both patients and deaths.  He showed promise several weeks ago and folks were somewhat surprised.  A day or two later, he was back to being on Trump's band wagon.

Trump attended a fundraiser in Texas without a mask on the day the US hit 150,000 coronavirus deaths

When Texas and Florida get anywhere near the death toll of New York, then maybe libs would have something to screech about. Until then, not so much....but the hatred for Trump means screeching is a necessity.

The politics of this virus is so depressing. When Texas or Florida have a spike in cases, it's negligent mismanagement by Republicans. But yesterday, Los Angeles County had its highest number of deaths in one day, so far, and that's just a mysterious tragedy. Because politics.
