AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — State health officials have lowered their total COVID-19 death count slightly. The Department of State Health Services says an automation error in a switch in its counting method erroneously added about 225 fatalities to the total. The state reported 8,800 new confirmed coronavirus cases Thursday and 322 new deaths blamed directly on COVID-19, the illness caused by the new coronavirus. The total caseload since the outbreak started in March is just over 412,000, while the revised total death toll is almost 6,300. The number of patients hospitalized with COVID-19 continues to fall, declining by 299 cases to 9,296 patients hospitalized.
