North Texas COVID-19 hospitalizations under 700

This is now the fourth straight day that COVID-19 hospitalizations have remained below 700 in the North Texas area.

TEXAS, U.S. — As certain countries remain concerned about a new variant of COVID-19, North Texas is seeing a slight drop in hospitalizations across the region.

In early January, moves by several countries to mandate COVID-19 testing for passengers arriving from China reflect global concerns that new variants could emerge as its outbreak continues.

At that time, the US, Japan, India, South Korea, Taiwan and Italy announced testing requirements for passengers from China. The US cited both the rise in infections and a lack of information, including genome sequencing of virus strains in the country.

On January 4, 2023, North Texas Trauma Service Area E recorded more than 1,000 hospitalizations for the first time since February 2022.
