The world is everchanging, with a new conflict seemingly arising as each day passes. Many U.S. states have been tackling the pandemic in unique ways, with Texas at the forefront of initiating reopening plans. Though things are reopening at a rapid pace, Texas COVID-19 cases continue to rise and fall at unpredictable rates, with the biggest spike yet hitting the state just yesterday, June 10, 2020.
Just yesterday, the state witnessed its highest increase of COVID-19 cases ever, with 2,504 confirmed.
The day before, on June 9, locals saw 1,637 new cases. June 2 to June 6 all saw numbers over 1,600 each day, before a drop for two days, then a return to the near 2,000 numbers on the 9.
The Texas Department of State Health Services, TxDSHS, and the Texas Health and Human Services, THHS, provide the public with an interactive COVID-19 tracking map which shows the rising and falling trends across the state.
The online feature also reveals case numbers by region, city, demographic, and more, along with showing the statistics on deaths and recoveries across Texas.
As of June 10, there have been 1,348,893 tests administered across the state. 79,757 analyses have turned up positive.
There have been an estimated 52,449 recoveries and 1,885 fatalities over the course of the pandemic.
As of yesterday, there are 25,423 total cases currently active in Texas.
