Texas coronavirus confirmed cases surpass 61,000


AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The number of confirmed coronavirus cases rose by more than 1,200 in Texas to surpass 61,000 with 25 additional deaths due to COVID-19, the disease caused by the deaths. The Texas health department reported Saturday at least 61,006 cases and 1,626 deaths. The true numbers are likely higher, however, because many people have not been tested and studies suggest people can be infected and not feel sick.
