Covid-19 cases continue to rise in Dallas as almost 3,000 cases are added to Dallas’ tally according to a Dallas Morning News article from January 15th. In it they say:
“Grim numbers from the pandemic continued to mount across North Texas and the state on Friday. Dallas County announced 2,817 new coronavirus cases and 24 more COVID-19 deaths. But the daily death count was significantly higher in Tarrant County, where 38 fatalities and 2,350 cases were reported.”
To add to it, the new UK-strain of the virus has been recorded in Dallas according to an NBC 5 DFW article from January 16th. In it they say:
“The first case of a COVID-19 variant that is said to be more contagious has been identified in Dallas County, according to county officials. Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins said Saturday that the variant was identified in a Dallas man in his 20s who had no recent history of travel outside the U.S. The man is stable and is in isolation. The health department is working to identify and notify anyone who had close contact with the man.”
With the new strain, now dubbed, the “super spreader” variant in Dalals, it looks like active infection aren’t going to take a dive any time soon.
