Coronavirus cases are on the rise in Texas since the Lone Star state started reopening almost three weeks ago, new numbers show.
The case count hit 45,198 Friday, up 1,347 from the day before, ABC News reported.
The death toll has increased as well, reaching a record 58 fatalities on Thursday and 56 on Friday. The total death count stood at 1,272 Friday.
A spokesman for Gov. Greg Abbott told ABC News that an increase in testing was contributing to a rise in the number of cases. The spokesman said hospitalizations had remained steady.
Texas lifted its stay-at-home order April 30 with a phased reopening. Shops and restaurants are already back in business and gyms are set to reopen Monday.

Sometimes I hate to even watch the news. It's just depressing. What's Abbott going to say...Increase in testing, or I was wrong.

Dr. Fauci said....too early people, just too early. We'll have to see how this plays out.

If anybody is still looking for face masks, Amazon has them. I had a pack of 50 delivered either Friday or Saturday. So pitiful...I can't even keep up with the day of the week anymore.

After seeing Governor Abbott live today on tv, I think I'm going to have to back up here, do a little flip-flop, and eat some crow. I, like many people in Texas, jumped to conclusions. I was just too harsh with my comment without having all the information.

After his explanation today, he seems to be sincerely trying to do the right thing. Maybe I'm just a sucker, but I now believe that that increase is due to testing.

The article says Texas has completed 350,000 tests since April 30. Another article was complaining about 50 new cases a day showing up in texas since the restrictions were reduced. 18x50 = 900 new cases. Thats 349,000 folks who DONíT have the virus!

That's a great article for anyone in the US to read, even if you don't live in Texas. This looks like it could get politically nasty very quickly.

Very funny, jim slagle . Could you do that every day...just kidding.

...

I know today is Wednesday because I had to do a grocery pickup run. People seem to moving out of the panic mode around here. There was a line at Sam's but nothing like the lines before with all the people piled up at the door.

I actually got every single thing on my list from Walmart, including flour and ground beef.

Shipping times from Amazon and Sam's seem to be improving too.

...

I feel for the people who have to wear the face masks for long periods of time. I will and do wear them when I'm out in the public, but I sure don't like them. Hot air collects under them and fogs my glasses. Maybe that only happens with the cheaper face masks. I don't know.

I put my mask on first. Then put my glasses on over the top edge of mask to "anchor" it down. Helps with the fog issue.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.

Lines at some food stores have eased up. BUT NOT at Trader Joe's. I still haven't been able to get there. I haven't even gone past Walmart or Costco. Target lines are long for in store shopping. But separate line for online order pick ups is very short.

I saw on the news today that hand sanitizer is combustible if left in direct sunlight for a long period of time. Kinda makes sense because of the alcohol content. They showed a pic of a car with a big burn mark on the hand rest.

I do take mine with me in the car but take it out when I get home. Temps here can get really hot. I only have one container, so it has to be multi purpose home/car.
