BREAKING: Texas is reporting 5,713 people who have died from COVID-19 - a dramatically higher tally than reported yesterday. That is 675 more than previously reported on Sunday.
State officials say they've changed the way they count deaths from COVID. Rather than waiting for counties to report totals, they are using death certificates data that is more up to date and accurate. And they are counting deaths as of when they died, instead of when reported.
Here's the state's explanation:
The new method shows that 2,420 people have died just in July from COVID-19 in Texas. In June we had 1,316 people die.
So what this in part means, is that for months more people have died from COVID-19 than we had previously been told. We previously were told 731 people died in June from COVID. Today's data from the state shows it was really 1,316 people who died.
