Dallas County Health and Human Services March 27 reported 64 additional positive COVID-19 cases, bringing the total in the county to 367.
County officials say hospitalizations from the novel coronavirus are increasing with 36% of all hospitalized patients requiring admission to intensive care units. Of those cases requiring hospitalizations to date, about two-thirds (65%) have been either over 60 years of age or have had at least one known high-risk chronic health condition.
“I’m so proud of the way North Texas is stepping up to this challenge. We will get through this together. #StayHomeStaySafe,” Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins said.
