A lot of people are looking forward to “reopening”, but is it worth one’s health? Many seem to think so, but as TheHill.com reports, there are consequences, such as in the case of Texas, which Saturday reported 1801 new COVID-19 cases in the largest single increase since the beginning of the entire crisis.
Texas reported 1,801 new coronavirus cases Saturday, reportedly marking the state’s largest single-day jump since the start of the coronavirus crisis.
The Texas Department of State Health Services said 734 of the new cases are from Potter and Randall counties.
“These counties’ new cases are largely from targeted testing of employees at meat plants in the area. More test results from plants are expected,” it tweeted.
Texas has reported 46,999 confirmed COVID-19 cases in total.
Texas is among the states allowing some nonessential business to reopen with restrictions in place.
The decision to reopen economies is up to local and state leaders. The White House released guidelines recommending that states and regions see a 14-day decrease in coronavirus cases before lifting restrictions. (source)
One can only wait to see what the rest of the states who have decided to “reopen” will report for their particular case numbers.
