Dallas County could see summer surge in COVID-19 cases. According to UTSW scientists what happens is up to you. 69% overall compliance with #SaferAtHome and we knock cases down to only a few a day. 60% and we ballon to 800 a day by July. #FlattenTheCurve

So, yesterday’s news about the record number of deaths across the state comes with a caveat:

Per @TexasHHSC, high # result of reporting in one day of backlogged tests from a large lab that had been having tech issues. This is why they use 7-day average: Positivity rate (previous 7 days) = New cases (previous 7 days) / New test results (previous 7 days). #txlege
