  • By
On Wednesday, 13 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 were reported in three North Texas counties.
 
According to reports from the Dallas County Health and Human Services, there are 11 new confirmed cases including 7 in Dallas, 1 in Coppell, 1 in Irving, 1 in Mesquite and 1 in Richardson
 
Of the 11 new cases, one is a teenager, one is in her 20s, two 30s, one 40s, five 50s and one is in the 70s. Only three of them were hospitalized and one of them is in the critical care unit.
 
No information on how five of the new patients got this virus because none of them traveled or came in contact with anyone else who is infected.
 
Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins said that we can control this by following the science and exercising personal responsibility. You should limit unnecessary trips beyond work and necessities like food and medical care. Every interaction in this outbreak carries some risk of spread.
 

These 11 new cases have made the total number of cases in Dallas County to 39.
 
The first positive case from Johnson County was reported on Wednesday. County leaders are working on a disaster declaration and will issue restrictions on public and private gatherings soon.
 
Collin County has reported the 9th case of the virus of a 32-year old female from Plano.
 
The first case of Ellis County was reported on Tuesday afternoon. Denton County has two and Tarrant County has six confirmed cases including one death. As far as the death rate is concerned, Texas has reported two deaths statewide.
