As of 11:00am June 10, 2020, Dallas County Health and Human Services is reporting 300 additional positive cases of 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19), bringing the total case count in Dallas County to 12,945, including 274 deaths.
The additional 3 deaths being reported today include:
Of cases requiring hospitalization who reported employment, over 80% have been critical infrastructure workers, with a broad range of affected occupational sectors, including: healthcare, transportation, food and agriculture, public works, finance, communications, clergy, first responders and other essential functions. Of cases requiring hospitalization, more than two-thirds have been under 65 years of age, and about half do not have any high-risk chronic health conditions. Diabetes has been an underlying high-risk health condition reported in about a third of all hospitalized patients with COVID-19.
The age-adjusted rates of confirmed COVID-19 cases in non-hospitalized patients have been highest among Hispanics (667.4 per 100,000), Asians (187.4 per 100,000) and Blacks (136.4 per 100,000). These rates have been higher than Whites (43.8 per 100,000). Over 60% of overall COVID-19 cases to date have been Hispanic. Of the 274 total deaths reported to date, over a third have been associated with long-term care facilities.
New cases are being reported as a daily aggregate, with a more detailed summary report updated Tuesdays and Fridays.
Local health experts use hospitalizations, ICU admissions, and ER visits as three of the key indicators in determining the COVID-19 Risk Level (color-coded risk) and corresponding guidelines for activities during our COVID-19 response. According to information reported to the North Central Texas Trauma Regional Advisory Council, we have seen an increase in the number of patients in the daily hospital census for numbers reported on June 9th. While the percentage of emergency room visits for COVID-19 like symptoms in Dallas County for a 24 hour period ending Tuesday, June 9th, dropped to 19 percent, that still represents 443 visits. You can find additional information on risk-level monitoring data here.
We'll have free, no questions asked, testing today at the American Airlines Center for protesters who have been engaged in a mass gathering five days ago or longer from 2-5pm and we'll do that again tomorrow as well. I'm proud of our peaceful protesters and the role that they're playing in building a more perfect union in radically transforming policing in America. The Public Health Committee is encouraging you to please maintain six foot distancing at the protests, wear your mask, use your hand sanitizer, and get tested to know your status to protect yourself, your family, other protesters and the broader community," said Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins.
