  1. Interesting to see the coronavirus data breakdown by race and ethnicity. So over 92% of the COVID-19 cases in El Paso County are Hispanic. That negates Alberto’s lame theory on who is causing the virus to spread.

      1. El Paso is having a surge due to lack of proper social distancing, and opening too soon. Also younger El Pasoans think they’re bullet proof and so they refuse to abide by health official’s guidlines.
