EDINBURG – Thirty-three residents have died due to complications related to COVID-19 and 813 people tested positive for the virus, Hidalgo County Judge Richard F. Cortez said Thursday. The total number of positive cases is 14,589. 

“I send my sincere condolences to these 33 families for the loss of their loved one,” said Judge Cortez. “We are at a point where action has to be taken by everyone in order to slow the spread of this infectious virus—our medical professionals are working long hours and beds are scarce. Please wear face coverings, avoid gatherings of 10 or more, and don’t leave your home unless it’s absolutely necessary.”

There are 7,250 net active cases and 1,205 people were released from isolation on Thursday meaning that they have been symptom-free for 10 days, including three days without a fever. 

There are currently 1,030 people hospitalized with complications from the virus; 229 of those cases are being treated in intensive care units. Today’s hospital numbers are lower than yesterday due to new reporting requirements from the hospitals that eliminated certain criteria that labeled patients as COVID.
