50 COVID-19 Deaths Reported In Dallas County

Many of us have watched the new COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations decline, and feel like the sky is clearing after the storm. with the number of vaccine doses increasing, new vaccination hubs being established, there’s some light at the end of a very dark tunnel. However, even as the number of new cases trends downward, the number of new deaths set records in Dallas County.

“Today I sadly report another record in deaths, with 50 residents who’ve lost their battle with COVID-19, along with 1,356 new cases. As we have said, these will be our darkest months for deaths thus far. But, if we make good choices, if we register to be vaccinated in as many places as we’re willing to drive to if we qualify under 1B, and if we wear our mask, maintain our distance, avoid crowds including Super Bowl parties, and forgo get-togethers, we will have a better March and get better every month thereafter in our battle against COVID and these new strains.

If we lose our resolve, and stop doing the things that we’re doing to keep ourselves and our community strong, then the battle will prolong and we run the risk of not reaching herd immunity before new strains set us back for a long time.

Now is the time to strengthen our resolve, trade fear for faith in the science and the facts that have proven to be effective in keeping us safer, and focus not on what your neighbor could do but on what each one of us can do to be just a little bit stronger in the battle against COVID. Together, we will overcome this pandemic. Brighter days are ahead if we follow the science and the facts together,” said Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins.
