Local Health Officials Confirm Community Spread Of The Coronavirus


Hidalgo County health officials say there is now clear evidence of community spread within the county.  Test results for COVID-19 came back positive for 17 more people Wednesday and county health investigators say it appears several of the individuals contracted the highly-contagious coronavirus from the people who initially contracted it while traveling, and then spread it to perhaps other family members.  The latest cases, which include 4 more children, bring the total for Hidalgo County to 79.  Also 2 more cases were reported in Willacy County Thursday, raising the number to 4, and the total number Valleywide to 143.
