Texas Has Hit a New High for Coronavirus Deaths in a Single Day

AUSTIN, Texas — Texas has hit a new high for coronavirus deaths in a single day and Gov. Greg Abbott says the numbers next week may be even worse.

The 105 new deaths reported Thursday makes this the deadliest week of the pandemic in what has rapidly become one of America’s virus hot zones. Texas reported a new high for hospitalizations for the 10th consecutive day.

Abbott moved to free up more hospital beds by banning elective medical procedures in hospitals that serve more than 100 counties in Texas. There are now more than 9,600 coronavirus patients in Texas hospitals, twice as many as just two weeks ago.

Abbott tells Houston television station KRIV that he thinks “the numbers are going to look worse as we go into next week.”


GENEVA (AP) — The World Health Organization said Friday that COVID-19 no longer qualifies as a global emergency, marking a symbolic end to the devastating coronavirus pandemic that triggered once-unthinkable lockdowns, upended economies and killed millions of people worldwide.
