The Texas Department of State Health Services and the Victoria County Public Health Department reported 40 new COVID-19 cases and no new deaths from the respiratory disease Monday.

No new deaths were reported in any counties throughout the region Monday.

The Victoria County Public health Department reported 25 new cases in its first update since Thursday, meaning the new cases span the last four days and do not reflect a single-day increase. New cases of COVID-19 increased in the last week in Victoria County, with the number of active cases moving to 98 as of Monday compared to 72 cases one week ago.

On Sunday, 20 COVID-19 patients occupied 2.99% of 669 staffed hospital beds in the Victoria’s trauma service area, according to the state health department. Hospitalization data is delayed by one day.

Area hospitals reported 357 empty hospital beds, and 23 empty beds in intensive care units, according to state data.

About the data: On Jan. 13, the Advocate shifted to using only COVID-19 data from the Texas Department of State Health Services and Victoria County Public Health Department to provide daily updates on the spread of the coronavirus in the region. The state compiles case data from local health departments and DSHS health regions, and pulls COVID-19 fatality data directly from official death certificates. These numbers are preliminary and therefore subject to change. State data may differ from data reported by local and regional health authorities because of delays in reporting or discrepancies. We will continue to update the numbers in real time and report changes as they arise.

For any questions about COVID-19 data, please reach out to the newsroom by sending an email to deliverydesk@vicad.com.
