Please be advised that the @CDCgov covid tracker trend data on #COVID19 by age in Texas are WRONG. CDC draws case data from their case line data file, and TX has reported age on only 3% of total cases.
SPECIAL NOTE ON TEXAS 2/9
CDC graphic is inadequately footnoted and does not disclose the very low case count behind their trend chart.
Their chart displays no new cases in TX in past 4 months!
@CDCgov should remove this highly inaccurate graphic from their website.
