by | May 24, 2020 | Latest

Collin County health officials confirmed an additional 15 net new cases of COVID-19 in the county today, May 24, bringing the adjusted reported total to 1,151 confirmed cases. There are 315 active cases and 803 that have successfully recovered. There are 21 cases hospitalized and 33 have died from COVID-19 related illness. The county reported 15,260 total negative tests and 1,998 people under monitoring. Reported cases by city are: Allen – 48 and 70 year old females and a 11 year old male teen Dallas – 49 year old female and a 49 year old male Lucas – 80 year old male McKinney – 35 year old female and a 64 year old male Plano – 14, 18, 21 and 25 year old females and 20 and 47 year old males Wylie – 44 year old female List cases by city exceed the reported cases in beginning of this report. These cases by gender are from Collin County health reports with no explanation for the difference between reported and listed cases. Note: Collin County’s health department receives daily COVID-19 test results – positive and negative – from physicians’ offices, private labs, hospitals and the National Electronic Disease Surveillance System (NEDSS) through Texas’ Department of State Health Services (DSHS). We share this information with the public the same day it is received. DSHS recently informed county health departments that NEDSS will no longer share negative test results, so that county health departments can focus on managing positive cases. As a result, the quantity of negative test results will decrease substantially. Individual cases may be removed if the place of residence is outside of Collin County.
