A Day Without A COVID-19 Death In Cameron County For The First Time In Months


For the first time since mid-July when the coronavirus began ravaging the Rio Grande Valley, there was one day in which someone didn’t die of COVID-19 in Cameron County.

County public health officials say this past Friday, hospitals reported no patient deaths from COVID-19. A total of 1,083 residents have died of the coronavirus-caused disease since mid-March. In Hidalgo County Friday, 5 residents died of COVID-19, bringing the more than 7-month total to 1,952. That remains the second-highest death toll in the state. Across the 4-county Valley, the COVID-19 death toll has reached 3,276.

The number of coronavirus cases in Texas surpassed 900,000 over the weekend, and the number of people who’ve died of COVID-19 in Texas topped 18,000. State health officials say both of those numbers, as well as the number of COVID patients in the hospital, are rising fast again – to levels not seen since August. 90 deaths were reported just on Saturday.
