AUSTIN, Texas — Texas health officials on Saturday reported a record of more than 4,400 new coronavirus cases in the state and 25 additional deaths due to the virus.

A total of 107,735 confirmed cases, an increase of 4,430 from Friday, and 2,165 deaths, up from 2,140, were reported Saturday.

Officials had reported 3,454 new cases on Friday after a previous record of 3,516 were reported on Thursday.

The actual number of people who have contracted the virus is likely higher because many people have not been tested and studies suggest that people can be infected and not feel sick.

Officials also reported 3,247 people hospitalized with the virus and that an estimated 67,096 people have recovered.

El Paso contributed to the state’s record Saturday by reporting a surge of 162 new virus cases for a total of 4,340. There was also one new El Paso virus death for a total of 20 this week.
