The cases increased at the end of September and are currently increasing. Hospitalized after the peak of July, but the decline has increased. The deaths have continued to decline since the end of July. When matters escalated in July, Texas Governor Greg Abbott introduced a statewide facade requirement when social disturbances are not possible indoors or when outside. Local courts have issued their own rules on masks. Restaurants were offering indoor food, but from 23 September, bars can only provide takeout services. Twenty-seven percent of voters say Biden would do a better job of dealing with the epidemic, while 43% said Trump would do a better job in the September CBS News Battleground Tracker poll.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Texas had 6.8% unemployment in August ranked 21st among 50 states.

Healthcare

More (48%) thought that Biden would help people get cheaper health care than Mr. Trump (36%). According to the Texas Medical Association, the US has “Texas is the uneducated capital”, noting that more than 4.3 million Texans lack health insurance and that the inefficiency rate is 1.75 times the national average.

Texas is the largest of a dozen states that did not expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act and its attorney general is leading the charge to repeal the law. The Kaiser Family Foundation states that more than 1.5 million people were eligible for pre-COVID if Texas expanded Medicaid.

President Trump should win, His administration continues to try to clamp down on unauthorized immigrants, who limit legal immigration and security humanitarian protection for foreign immigrants.

A Houston Chronicle column cited data from the US Chamber of Commerce’s Global Energy Institute that a fracking ban could cost Texas 3 million jobs by 2025 and $ 1.5 trillion in state GDP.

Mr. Trump claims that Biden will ban fracking, but Biden says that only federal will ban new fracking on land.
