  1. According to what federal data? The article leaves out the fact that hospital ICUs are well understaffed so less beds available and have other non-covid patients.

  2. As of this morning, 2,771 people in El Paso County have died from COVID. That is out of the 141,043 people that caught it. The death rate is 1.9%. And, had Samaniego not told other cities to send their sick here, there would be no ICU problem.

  3. El Paso County has about 750,000 population. As of this morning, 141,041 have caught it since this began 18 months ago. That means 18.8% of the population caught it in 18 months.

    1. El Paso’s positivity rate is only 3% which is good compared to the rest of Texas. For example Bell County (Killeen and Fort Hood) it’s over 20%.

    1. The blue states under report and fabricate covid stats nitwit. Cuomo under reported 12,000 covid deaths while he was Governor. BTW – You figure out what federal data does the article refer to?
