Texas recorded 10,865 confirmed cases of the virus on Tuesday, setting a new record. The state, under Republican Greg Abbott, on Tuesday reported 6,170 people hospitalized with coronavirus and 94 new deaths, according to the state Department of Health Services.

Texas recently overtook California, the nation’s most populous state, with the most cases in the United States. The actual number of infections is believed to be higher because many people have not been tested and because some studies show that people can carry the virus and not develop symptoms.

Coronavirus cases are on the rise in the cities of Laredo and El Paso. Another 1,292 cases and nine deaths were reported in El Paso County on Tuesday, bringing the total death toll in the region to 682.

Nationwide, one million cases of coronavirus were recorded in the first 10 days of November.

US President Donald Trump lowered those estimates and was confident that the final figure would be between 50,000 and 60,000 deaths, although later he predicted up to 110,000 deaths, a number that has also been exceeded.

For its part, the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluations (IHME) of the University of Washington, whose models for predicting the evolution of the pandemic are often set by the White House, estimates that by the end of the year the United States will reach the 325,000 deceased and by February 1 at 400,000.

The US state of Florida added 4,353 new cases of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus and 69 deaths from the covid-19 disease on Tuesday, while the daily rate of positives went to the highest number in a month: 8.34% of the more than 50,000 tests carried out on Monday.

Although this rate does not exceed the dangerous 10% barrier that health authorities have set, today’s number is higher than the 14-day average positivity rate across the state (6.57%), and that the average of the last week, including this Tuesday (7.20%).

Florida, the third state in number of confirmed cases in the entire country, behind Texas and California, now accumulates 852,174 cases and 17,248 deaths, to which should be added another 212 of non-residents who died in the state.

In twelve days of the last two weeks the 4,000 new cases were exceeded, and in four of them the figure was more than 6,000.

It is possible that the number of cases will be reduced in the next days since many sites authorized to carry out tests closed the weekend due to the arrival of tropical storm Eta in southern Florida, and it is still unknown when they will be able to resume their activities .

The United States reached the figure of 10,205,207 confirmed cases of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus and 239,274 deaths from the covid-19 disease on Tuesday, according to the independent count from Johns Hopkins University.
