NEW: Texas has topped 3,000 deaths from COVID-19 for the first time. The state is reporting another 95 deaths today, giving Texas 3,013.

Also Texas hit 10,000 active COVID confirmed hospitalizations for the first time.
The state is reporting 10,698 available beds statewide for COVID-19 and 940 available ICU beds. State still has 5,127 ventilators available. All those numbers are way down from a week ago and from earlier this summer.
New Texas COVID-19 data:
2,389,789 people tested (up 76,577 from yesterday)
240,111 positive cases (up 9,765 from yesterday)
3,013 deaths (that's 95 more people than yesterday)
10,002 lab-confirmed COVID hospitalizations (up 313 from yesterday)
The 7-day averages
8,083 positive cases per day
63 deaths per day
9,051 total COVID patients in the hospital per day

Previous 7 days
6,558 positive cases per day
36 deaths per day
6,486 total COVID in the hospital per day
In summary, Texas deaths and hospitalizations set new records as government leaders become increasingly concerned about medical supply and staff shortages.
Not to scare everyone, but we've doubled hospitalizations every two weeks since mid-June. We are at 10,000 hospitalizations today with only 10,000 available beds. We literally can't have this double again without doing something to create more beds.
I've got to share this. I spoke to a woman who works at an assisted living center today. She was in tears. They have so many COVID-19 cases, workers are calling in sick and they are receiving instructions on how to preserve bodies because of delays in the morgue from getting them
