EL PASO, Texas -- El Paso health officials reported 39 new coronavirus cases on Wednesday evening, bringing the county’s total number of those infected closer to 200.

Of the 192 total confirmed cases to date, 40 of those individuals are currently hospitalized, up from 27 just a day go - including 12 of those patients now in intensive care.

“We’ve doubled our cases in five days. If we don’t stay at home, practice social distancing, and wear the recommended face coverings when in public, it is only a matter of time before everyone knows someone who is infected in El Paso," said City/County Health Authority Dr. Hector Ocaranza, in a dire warning.

El Paso officials expressed concerns that residents may be tempted to hold gatherings to celebrate Easter, and they were strongly advising against it.

'Easter weekend is typically a time for our families to come together but we must continue to stay home and maintain social distancing during this time of celebration,” said El Paso Mayor Dee Margo. “The sooner we suppress the spread (of the virus), the sooner we can start getting back to normal.”

Below is the latest case locator map and other demographic information on the virus outbreak as provided by the health department.

  1. God bless El Paso & God bless our beautiful country. The U.S. will get through this as a nation. In the meantime, stay safe, stay healthy and stay home.

  2. I notices that KVIA won’t allow comments on the fake intelligence report they have been touting. The intelligence community has already debunked it as a lie, but KVIA is still touting this lie. KVIA/ABC are Chinese Communist propagandists.

    1. Fake news ABC and it’s sidekick KVIA. KVIA: Where Fake Leftist Anti Trump News Comes First. BTW – The brainwashed libtards will believe it even though it has been debunked.

      1. It appears that fero2a might also be a bit short in the awareness ledger too. How are you people still oblivious to the tragic mistake the nation made in november 2016?

        1. Hey moron I didn’t vote for Trump I voted against crooked Hillary. Still butt sore over the November 2016 loss? LMAO. Looking forward to seeing your TDS X 10 this November.

  3. You two are a nuisance. Go back to Tuscon or wherever you came from and stay there.

    You are deliberate idiots. I find both of you despicable with your parroting of cliches that will get people killed. Dumbbells.

  4. That dipsht Fero2A always talking about fake news on this site, but never explains how it’s fake. He just reads headlines from Alex Jones or Breibart and goes from there. His aluminum foil hat is a couple sizes too small. If that ignorant bozo wants fake news, he should watch Trump at his daily pressers. The prez talks fake stuff all the time, i.e. voter fraud is rampant, we’ll be back to normal by Easter, he closed flights from Asia and Europe as soon as he was warned about the pandemic, he knew it was a pandemic when he said it will all go away, and on and on and on. If anyone reading this wants to see what fake news really is, ask Fero2A what he thinks. Chances are, what he thinks is a load of crap covered in bald face lies.

    1. Oh look it’s that mean drunk Steve on Resler. What’s the matter bars closed? Seeing moron never Trumper Steve on Resler with continued extreme TDS…..PRICELESS! BTW – Now go back to fake news ABC where you typically reside. Obviously you already know that ABC/CNN story was fully debunked when you visited Breitbart so the issue is moot. Unnamed and anonymous sources? Drink the leftist koolaid. LMAO. In conclusion you are just being a typical ahole that you are. Now GFY along with your ahole buddy Alberto.

      1. Dumbass Steve on Resler debunked. What a fool! Now put this in your crack pipe and smoke it.

        Breitbart April 8, 2020. “The Pentagon late on Wednesday said an ABC News report that said a military intelligence unit wrote a report on the coronavirus in November is not accurate. Col (Dr.) R. Shane Day, the director of the National Center for Medical Intelligence at the Defense Intelligence Agency, said in a statement that as a matter of practice, the NCMI does not comment publicly on specific intelligence matters. He said ” However, in the interest of transparency during this current public health crisis, we can confirm that media reporting about the existence/release of a National Center for Medical Intelligence Coronavirus-related product/assessment in November of 2019 is not correct. No such NCMI product exists. A defense official added on background that the NCMI and the DIA spent considerable time over the last 24 hours examining every possible product that could have been identified as related to this topic and have found no such product.”

    1. You must be talking about Alberto Velarde the dumbass Democrap and all around dumbass libtard. Cara = Alberto. I see you got plenty of sleep after last night’s psycho ranting. What a loser!
