Posted

COVID-19 active case numbers and death total in Pecos County rose this past week after a decline in numbers the week prior.

Three additional deaths in the county from COVID-19 were accounted for in the past seven days – moving the death total 22 in the county. A 50-year-old female who was hospitalized in San Antonio, an 89-year-old female who was a resident at Focused Care Nursing Home, and 91-year-old female resident who was a resident at FCNH in Fort Stockton passed away within the last two weeks.

The 50-year-female passed away on Nov. 8 in San Antonio. The 89-year-old female and 91-year-old female passed away on Nov. 13 at FCNH.

The 50-year-old female is one of three Pecos County residents who have passed away from COVID-19 who are 50 or younger.

Active case numbers increased along with deaths, growing from 34 people on Tuesday, Nov. 10 to 50 people as of Tuesday, Nov. 17.

Despite the active case increase of 16 people in the past week, the active case number of 50 is still well short of the highest active case number to date in Pecos County. On Nov. 2, there was a reported 67 active cases – the highest active case number the county has reached since the start of the pandemic.

From Nov. 10 to Nov. 17 there were 41 new positive tests for COVID-19 and 22 recoveries from virus in the same span.

The increase in positive tests grew the active case numbers from the start of the pandemic in the county to 485 since the start of the pandemic. That compares to 2,880 tests completed – meaning nearly 17 percent of people in the county who get tested have a positive result.

As of Nov. 17, there are 63 tests pending and a total of 2,219 negative tests since testing began.

The 41 new positive tests this past week greatly varied in age as there were four residents who tested positive that 12-years-old or younger, 15 people between the age of 20 and 40, and 17 people 50 years old or older.
