EL PASO, Texas (KVIA) -- The El Paso Department of Public Health announced a record 1,443 new Covid-19 cases Monday, along with 118 delayed results, for a total of 1,561 added cases.

Hospitalizations also increased to 853, which is a new record, with 180 of those patients in ICUs. Those numbers come on the heels of a declaration by El Paso County Judge Ricardo Samaniego that "all hospitals have reached capacity," as he imposed a daily curfew of 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. for the next two weeks.

Health officials also announced one new coronavirus-related death Monday, bringing the death toll to 576 in El Paso County.

El Paso has now set a new record for daily cases and coronavirus hospitalizations three times since last Thursday.

There are currently 12,179 known active cases, which is also a new record.

Since the start of the pandemic, there have been more than 40,000 confirmed cases in El Paso County, with 27,638 reported recoveries. Doctors note, however, that some recovered persons may suffer long-term health impacts from having been infected.

      1. Your TDS acting up again after a weekend off? So funny. Good punishment for you. President Trump has nothing to do with the shit show here in El Paso. You’re an idiot as usual. Oh the same doctor that said it was OK not to wear masks as far back as March? Over 2.2 million would be dead from the virus by now? What can go wrong if you wear a mask, social distance and wash hands. Explain that one dummy. Now GFY!

          1. It’s not like you have a choice out in public nitwit. Take your mask off your fat ass or you might get the virus.

        1. You’re either ignorant or just not very intelligent. You’re reusing a lie about Fauci (look up what he actually said, not what Fox News said he said). And judging by the house parties I see during Cowboys games (drive by a few when I gassed up my vehicle yesterday at 2:30), people aren’t social distancing. Sure, when they go to Albertsons, they are. But not when it’s Miller time at your buddies house. Go ahead and believe what Trump and Tucker Carlson say. Fine with me.

          1. It’s fake news Steve. No one believes your fake news. So you are jealous of your neighbors? No one invited you I see. You’re a pitiful sad creature with no friends. Trying to stay relevant when you aren’t relevant. Everything in your mind revolves around President Trump. That’s a very bad case of TDS that you have had for about 5 years now. He has nothing to do with your sad life. That was your making. Get some mental medical help. I pity your children. Hopefully what you have is not genetic.

  1. The followers of the orange buffoon won’t be happy until everything is completely locked down. Then they will cry that their rights are being violated. Amazing ignorance like their leader.

          1. What are you going to do when Trump slaughters Biden? Cry, scream at the sky? Get out your bat?

          2. He will probably start beating all the Alberto psycho schizo personalities to death. Then start all over again. The first new alias will be the one ranting about getting rid of the electoral college.

        1. Just look in the mirror commie. I spent 6 years with the U.S. Army in Europe during the Cold War nitwit so I know what a communist looks like. You fit that definition to a “T”.

          1. Communists don’t have a “look” moron. Communism is a political doctrine. Communists are adherents to that doctrine. They have no “look”. 9 more days😀🇺🇸

          2. Of course they do. A look and feel. Especially after reading all the communist propaganda you post you fit the description perfectly. Sad thing is you are too chicken shit to admit it.

  2. AV shut your Old Ass up. You call anybody who won’t vote for the Pussygrabber a *communist,* or a *terrorist. * I call anybody who backs Trump a Dumbass!! Thanks to the Inept, Imbecile you call a *president* El Paso is now a Covid19 Hotspot. Trump doesn’t have ,and will never have a plan to get rid of Covid19 or even to control it. It is up to every State and every city to try to control this pandemic. Trump just repeats the same old line that *it will disappear like magic.* The one who will disappear without a doubt 8 days from now will the Stupidest, most Inept idiot ever to be elected to the presidency. I give you Johnnie Trump the Head Clown who will have to tear down his Circus tent and move it Russia.

    1. What’s the matter did he hurt your BFF’s feeling? Now go wax his ass and scrub his balls. El Paso is a hotspot due to you libtards that can’t run a city and depending on junk science. The chickens came home to roost. LMAO. JO HO 2020 is a trainwreck. Biden will lose.

  3. I imagine Russia will be the only place he could go after this. He’s pretty well burned his bridges everywhere else except maybe North Korea.

      1. His niece is saying that he is so desperate to win by now he will do anything to win because if he doesn’t he will probably go to prison. But we know Mr. BIDEN will probably pardon him just for the sake our country no matter how bad he has besmirched our Nation. So sad, and tragic!


      1. Only thing in my present vocabulary is what I said above! Feo the Pink Panther is working on ultra secret high level security clearance job that exists only in his peanut head. So funny🤩🤩🤩

  5. How about the new polls that came out today? getting tighter and tighter. You leftists getting shriller and shriller. President Trump up nationally over Biden by 1 point 48-47. 52% job approval rating. Back to 4 – 5 points over Biden HO in Texas. You can’t trust those libtard outliers. Cornyn slaughtering MJ the foul mouthed bitch by at least 10 points. Dumbass loser Beto no wheres to be found. The only thing he can flip is his nasty blue boogers. LMAO.

    1. Junior high school insults by an old senile man. Boogers??? Really! Get together with your Racist Retard All Stars and come up with something better. Otherwise stay off this site, son.

      1. You only understand low level nasty gutter talk. So I cater to your deficiency. Now go clean the boogers and lugis out your mask. Andale pendejo. BTW – You are the old senile man. A 64 year old crybaby and whiner. Wah! Wah! Wah! LMAO.

  6. Biden does need Texas, retard. He has more than enough electoral votes without it. Texas has always been Hillbilly Heaven for Republican politicians. Trump can have his rural cow loving retards in Texas.

    1. Biden does need Texas? See you can’t even speak English. Biden will never get Texas and lose the whole election. Your vote goes in the trash can. He is losing PA and FL too. LMAO.

  7. By the way, Biden now holds a 12 point advantage nationally over Shithead Trump. That’s 4 times better than the lead Hillary had with one week to go before the election. Sorry, son. Better change your vote to Democrat, otherwise you’re just pissing in the wind.

    1. From another libtard outlier poll? Not according to RCP’s latest. Clean out you web browser for fake news. I don’t vote Democrap like you do loser. BTW I already voted yesterday. So eff off!

      1. I though I saw you at the polling station. Was that you with the goofy maga hat and boots still full of cows shit? Yep. That was you, alright. I could tell because you were the only one on the Republican voter line.

        1. See you don’t vote because you are not real Alberto. There is no Republican line in a general election moron. Plus I’m a man of color and don’t wear Mexican shit stompers like you do or look like a big fat brown Smeagol. BTW – There are 100 early voting stations open until the 30th. Obviously you weren’t at any. Keep on putting your foot in your big mouth dummy. Jesus you are such a moron.

  8. Oh, yeah. I just saw the RCP list of polls. 10 out of 14 polls had Biden winning. Who are you trying to bullshit, dude? 10÷14 translates to 71.4 advantage for Biden. Did you flunk math, or are you just hoping against hope that your Pussygrabber wins!

  9. You that daft? The only polls that count one week before the election are the current ones. Not the ones that go back 1 to 6 months. The averages don’t mean jack shit. Those stats are just to make you libtards happy until your world comes crashing down on November 3. Your pussy grabber and fossil fool is going to loose his ass.

  10. Look dude. Just go back to your Old Testament and really read it this time. After you’re done, you won’t vote for the Pussygrabber. If you do, just throw that book in the garbage because it won’t help you anyway.
