AUSTIN, Texas — The coronavirus continues to cut its record-setting swath through Texas as state officials reported a record 10,351 new cases for the day Saturday.

That brought the total cases of Covid-19, the illness caused by the virus, to just over a quarter-million dating to the start of tracking in early March.

The true number of cases though is likely higher because many people have not been tested, and studies suggest people can be infected and not feel sick.

A record 10,083 Covid-19 patients are hospitalized, while 99 new fatalities were reported Saturday. The total is second only to the record 105 reported Thursday and brought the state’s overall death toll to 3,112.

Harris County had the most active cases with almost 27,000, with Dallas County coming in a distant second with almost 13,000. El Paso County had over 3,300 actives cases as of Saturday.

  1. As of today; Electoral votes for Biden: 346. If all tossups are included Sleepy Joe would have 400. We should have a competent national response to covid19 right after January 20, 2021, and the 4 year national nightmare will end.

    1. Posting leftist propaganda again. The leftist polls are intended to get you libtard/Democraps out to vote since President Trump will win. The COVID-19 hysteria will disappear after November 4. You leftists will be too busy going after the electoral college. Repeat of 2016. BTW – Crooked Hillary was supposed to win and get all the electoral votes back in 2016 but she didn’t obviously. Your TDS will get worse when President Trump gets reelected.

    2. Today an average of the top 5 polls shows Sleepy Joe has pulled ahead in Texas by 1 point. Even the states with high concentrations of incest e sentence of Roger Stone. and little education are abandoning the orange buffoon. Texas flipped into Biden territory shortly after the orange buffoon commuted the sentence of Roger Stone. Another one of many uwise recent political moves.

          1. I didn’t say it, but you don’t care because you’re a close-minded A-Hole. I’m guessing you didn’t listen or did you did listen and the truth hurt.
