Diabetes has been an underlying high-risk health condition reported in about a third (30%) of all hospitalized patients with COVID-19. See Summary Report attached. New cases are being reported as a daily aggregate, with a more detailed summary report updated Tuesdays and Fridays.
“Today, we mourn the passing of ten more of our residents. My heart goes out to their families and all who are suffering during this pandemic. Evidence continues to mount that the aggressive move to shelter in place on March 22nd is #FlatteningTheCurve in Dallas County and North Texas. We are in the middle of this fight and we must not waver from the exercise of sound personal decision-making and smart physical distancing. I’m proud of the actions North Texans are taking to protect themselves and #publichealth,” said Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins.
