DALLAS (AP) — Four more people in Texas with COVID-19 have died, as the number of people with the disease caused by the novel coronavirus swelled to nearly 2,900, the state health department said Monday.
The reported fatalities were at 38 on Monday, up by four from Sunday while the number of diagnosed cases rose by nearly 400. Harris County and Dallas County both had around 500 confirmed cases Monday, according to the state tally.
For most people, the coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia and death.
