Another day, another accounting anomaly in the Texas Department of State Health Services report.
Even though there were only five cases added to Frio County’s total, a significant number moved from the recovered category to the active category.
Our data dates back to April 1, 2020, when there was 1 total case in Frio County. Today is the first day that numbers decreased in the recovered category- and they decreased by 33 cases or 8% of the total recovered. As a result the top bar graph on our dashboard will not show a significant increase because it shows only new cases, but the bottom line graphs will, as they show total active cases.
As soon as we get an explanation from DSHS, we’ll share the answer with the public.
