State: COVID-19 caused five deaths in county

Posted

According to the Texas Department of State Health Services, up to five Madison County residents have died due to the COVID-19 virus, though those numbers won’t be official for a while.

The DSHS reports updated figures to an online dashboard each afternoon, but In order to publish data quickly, the agency has to bypass what is normally a months-long process of reviewing COVID-19 data and performing quality checks before publishing. So daily information is provisional and subject to change.

As of Monday, the DSHS said there are 154 active cases of the novel coronavirus in Madison County. The agency’s numbers include cases at the Ferguson Unit, though the Texas Department of Criminal Justice reports no current active cases among prisoners there. There are, though, 27 active cases among employees at the Ferguson Unit.

Also as of Monday’s report COVID-19 has killed 12,536 Texans.
