El Paso sees 3 straight weeks of daily virus death reports, plus hits new active case record


EL PASO, Texas -- El Paso health officials reported two new coronavirus deaths on Sunday morning, raising the fatality count to 293 and marking the 21st consecutive day of virus-related deaths reported in the county.

The latest victims were both men, one in his 60s and the other in his 70s. Men have now accounted for a much higher number of deaths than women in El Paso throughout the pandemic.

Health leaders also tallied 268 new virus cases Sunday, bringing the infection total to 16,308. Of those, 4,362 cases are considered active - a new record high - surpassing 4,037 actives on July 21.

As of Sunday, there have been 11,946 recoveries - although research suggests that some people who recover from the virus face long-term health issues as a result of having been infected.

Hospitalizations continued a downward decline Sunday morning at 211 patients. That's the lowest number of people hospitalized with illness from the virus since July 5. Data showed 72 of those patients currently require intensive care while 40 were on ventilators.

  1. Funny that we haven’t heard a peep from Juarez of late. I’m betting their numbers are 4-10x our number of cases and deaths. Downright impossible to flatten our numbers when we have a huge population centre to our south and an open border in between.

    1. K1DPR again hooked on blaming Mexico for everything. Classic Trumptard. When it was the vacationing white people that brought it here to the US. The white kids kids on beaches failing to social distance early on, the white people who refused to wear masks, the white people were the first to Protest on streets without masks and social distancing.

  2. Funny how the KKKvia trolls get all upset over a virus their Divider in Chief has done nothing about but play the blame game. You turds should have a little more compassion for the victims of this virus that was predicted years ago. Can you guys keep your bigoted comments to yourself? It is Sunday. God bless.

    1. Thats right florecita. alberto pedo muerto, comrade flores, cara de caca, and you are the turds that have no compassion for anyone but yourselves. I agree. Keep your bigoted comments to yourself. Every day. Not just Sunday. Go to hell.

  3. When you look at real numbers, like deaths per 100k population, you get a better picture of where the problems are.
    The US isn’t even in the top 10 but Mexico is number 2.

    Things that make you go hmm…

  4. Covid deniers, Close your mouth, plug your ears, close your eyes and repeat to yourself, Covid19 is not real, not real, not real, not real. Maybe if you repeat that for a full year it will disappear. But don’t bet your life on it, you may lose more than you bargained for.
