Dallas County Health Services reported 1,814 infections and 23 new coronavirus deaths on Monday, December 21, 2020, while the number of hospitalizations reached record highs.

With the new figures, which include 159 probable cases, the county has registered 18,274 COVID-19 infections since the beginning of the pandemic. From March to date, 1,484 people have died in Dallas from the virus.

Judge Clay Jenkins insisted on avoiding meetings with people outside the family to celebrate the end-of-year holidays.

“At the beginning of the Christmas week, today we reported 1,814 new cases, 23 new deaths and for the first time, 1,000 people were hospitalized with covid-19. Now, more than ever, it is important to follow the doctors’ advice to avoid congestion, “said Jenkins.

“Therefore (you should avoid) holidays with people outside of those you live with and use masks when you are in a closed place outside your home,” he insisted.
