Officials continue looking at how the Covid-19 Virus is spreading throughout the community.
This is to clearly understand trends and human interaction patterns as to how the Virus is spreading so rampantly in our community.
Eagle Pass Mayor Luis Sifuentes stated that it’s of great importance to understand who in the community is being infected the most by the Covid-19 Virus to be able to mitigate it and keep others out of harms way.
Up until January 11th, there had been 7,443 positive cases of which Individuals between the ages of 20 to 60 years old have been the most affected.
A breakdown of ages in 10-year intervals shows that Individuals between the age of 20 to 30 years old (1991 to 2000) had 1,301 positive cases of Covid-19.
Juveniles 18 years and younger had 1,106 positive cases.
This is certainly troubling as a pattern clearly, hypothesizes that these age groups could be causing infections in older age groups.
