Victoria County labeled "super hot spot" for coronavirus

A COVID-19 report released this week lists Victoria County as one of seven “super hot spots” in Texas because of the county’s high number of COVID-19 cases and high transmission rate.

The report, which was produced by Dr. Rajesh Nandy, an associate professor of biostatics and epidemiology at University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth, and a data analytics team, was released Monday.

People didn't let their guard down, they never had it up to begin with.

True. Not surprising given that there was little to no testing available, contradictory information, and so very many people who felt taking precautions was a civil rights violation issue, rather than a mutual protection issue.
