Texas approaches 15,000 COVID-19 deaths


  AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas health officials report 3,433 new coronavirus cases and 135 more deaths due to COVID-19, the illness caused by the virus. The state health department on Saturday reported 686,068 total cases and 14,848 deaths. The true number of cases is likely higher though because many people haven’t been tested and studies suggest people can be infected and not feel sick. The department estimates that 605,522 people have recovered from the virus and that there are 65,698 active cases.
