AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas health officials report 3,306 new cases of the coronavirus that causes COVID-19, along with 97 new deaths from the illness. The cases reported Friday by the state health department raises the total number of cases since tracking of the virus started in March to 728,552, with an estimated 67,045 cases now active and 3,221 of those requiring hospitalization. Meanwhile, the Texas death toll for the outbreak has risen to 15,364. 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.
