HARLINGEN, Texas — As Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced plans to re-open Texas over the next several weeks in a series of executive orders, doctors in Cameron County say we have to be cautious about returning back to normal
Dr. Christopher Romero is on the COVID-19 response team with Valley Baptist Medical Center and says data collected by the Texas Department of Health and Human Service suggests south Texas is behind in COVID-19 cases.
“We don’t have a solid trend line. Everything is peaking and on its way back down,” said Dr. Romero.
Relaxing shelter-in-place ordres in Texas could result in a resurgence in cases.
“The ratio of positive tests in Cameron County is higher than in the state of Texas, and that may be a function of that we are being very targeted who we are testing down here with limited testing capacity,” Dr. Romero explained.
