Austin, Texas – More than 9,100 new cases of coronovirus occurred in Texas on Sunday, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.
The university reported that 9,113 new cases caused the epidemic in March to exceed the number of Texas cases by 1.052 million.
The actual number of cases in Arkansas is likely to be higher because many people have not been tested and people can carry the virus but do not feel ill.
The university’s study found that 133 new deaths led to the epidemic in Texas for 19,918.
The survey showed 67,168 new cases and 772 new deaths in Texas last week.
For most people, coronovirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and a cough that clears up in two to three weeks. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can lead to more serious illnesses, including pneumonia and death.
