Back in June, we looked at the situation of hospitalizations in Texas, one month after Governor Abbott lifted all COVID19 restrictions in Texas, and as was noted, there was no rise in hospitalizations.
Now almost a month later, we’ll have another look to see whether hospitalizations picked up or not. The data is again from the Texas Department of Health Services and current as of July 24, 2021.
Hospitalizations are now going up again – most likely due to the Delta-Variant of the virus, as the Texas Tribune writes.
There are still no state-wide restrictions being re-introduced, but local officials in some counties have asked citizens to take additional measures to protect themselves.
