Health Department Data Shows COVID-19 Hospitalizations on the Upswing in DFW, Statewide

After dropping to nearly 1,400 patients late last month, COVID-19 hospitalizations are on the upswing in North Texas and across the Lone Star State.

Data from the Texas Department of State Health Services released on Tuesday shows that as of July 5 there were 1,746 COVID-19 patients in Texas hospitals.

The number is far below the high of more than 14,000 reached in January 2021, but also represents an upward trend over the last week or so.

On June 27, the state reported 1,428 COVID-19 patients in Texas hospitals, that’s the lowest number reached since April 2020. On July 5, just eight days later, the state reported an increase of more than 300 patients in Texas hospitals.

With only roughly 50% of Texans vaccinated and with the increasing spread of the Delta variant, Stephen Love, president and CEO of the DFW Hospital Council, expects the number of cases to continue to increase following the July 4 holiday. More information about the variant and its impact on the DFW area can be found in this NBC5DFW news article.
