Maverick County set a one-day record for Covid-19 positive cases on Tuesday, January 12.
Maverick County Judge David Saucedo and Eagle Pass Mayor Luis Sifuentes reported on Tuesday that tests had detected a total of 205 cases in a 24-hour period.
These are the most cases seen in a one-day period since the onset of the Covid-19 Pandemic in our community since the month of March.
Up to now in a 12-day span, Maverick County has accumulated 1,241 new positive cases. This is almost as many cases as the highest month total that we have seen so far which was in July with 1,549.
We still have 19 more days which will likely shatter all current records and put a strain on any type of response.
