Over the last 2 weeks, Nov. 30-Dec. 13, Hopkins County has had 209 new cases, an 11 percent increase from the two week period ending on Nov. 29, according to Texas Department of State Health Services‘ Weekly Covid-19 Profile report released Dec. 15.
Case counts increased in all of eight of the 11 age categories DSHS breaks new COVID-19 cases from Nov. 30 to Dec. 13 into.
For the third straight week, there were no new COVID-19 cases among children ages 0-3 years; taking into account that each weekly report is for the 2 preceding weeks, that means no children age 3 or younger has tested COVID-19 had tested COVID-19 positive in the past four weeks.
Only two categories had fewer new cases during the past 2 weeks than the 2 week period before. Twenty-six Hopkins County residents age 70-71 tested positive during the last 2 week report period, down from 32 new cases reported for the two weeks ending Dec. 8. In fact, that’s the least number of new COVID-19 cases reported for this age group since the state began providing the weekly profiles.
During the current two-week period, there were 19 school aged cases, up from 9 last week, so it’s no surprise new cases in the two children’s age groups that fall within that range more than doubled over the last week; of course, both previously had less than 10 cases each during the report period ending Dec. 8
There were seven children ages 4-11 who received positive COVID-19 results over the last 2 weeks, up from three for the two-week period ending Dec. 8. That’s still one less than the Dec. 1 report and five fewer new cases than the Nov. 24 report.
Eleven new COVID-19 cases were reported among children ages 12-17, up from five in the Dec. 8 report and nine in the Dec. 1 report, but still five fewer new cases than the Nov. 24 report.
Only three new cases were reported in the last two weeks in youth ages 18-19 years, up from two during the Dec. 8 report period, but five less than the Nov. 24 report and two less than the Dec. 1 report.
There were nearly twice as many new cases among adults ages 80-120 years during the Dec. 15 report period than the six in the Dec. 8 report and 7 in Nov. 24 and Dec. 1 reports.
The age group with not only the most new cases but also the highest number of cases in Hopkins County from Nov. 30 to Dec. 13 was residents ages 40-49 years. There were 43 new cases in the Dec. 15 report, up from 34 on Dec. 8, 25 on Dec. 1 and 35 on Nov. 24.
Hopkins County residents ages 50-59 years and 60-69 years each had 33 new cases as of the Dec. 15 report. While that’s six less new cases among ages 50-59, that’s five additional cases for ages 60-69. Both of these categories had 40 or more cases during the Nov. 24 and Dec. 1 report periods.
There were 25 new cases among Hopkins County residents ages 20-29 years, four more than the Dec. 8 report, but three fewer new cases on Dec. 15 than the Dec. 1 report and six less than the Nov. 24 report.
Ages 30-39 years had one more new case during the last two-week period than the 16 reported Dec. 8. That’s still four less than the Dec. 1 report and 20 less than the Nov. 24 report.
