Coronavirus Is Still Out There
Greetings y’all. Dr. Pete here with a quick Coronavirus update.
As expected, since the state opened up in May, we’ve seen an increase in the number of COVID-19 cases here in Travis and Hays counties. No data yet on who’s getting sick (age, CO-morbid conditions, etc) but that data will come.
I know no one wants to hear and see these numbers. I know that I sure don’t! That said, just be aware of your surroundings, wear a mask in public as much as possible, and ensure the safety of those most at risk.
——————- Note: These numbers include not only positive CASES (to be expected with increased testing AND increased social interactions) but also HOSPITALIZATIONS.
Here are the Travis County numbers:
Number hospitalized, and ICU numbers vs those on the vent:
