Hopkins County COVID-19 Hospitalizations Pass 30% As Year Comes To End

In a grim reminder of how awful 2020 has been, the latest report from the Hopkins County Emergency Management Team showed 30 Covid-19 patients are currently in the Covid Unit at CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital in Sulphur Springs. With 96 staffed hospital beds at the local campus, that pushes the Covid Hospitalization Rate locally up to 31.25%.

The Texas Department of State Health Services tracks this hospitalization rate but as a region, and our region is Trauma Service Area F. Our region consists of the counties of Hopkins, Delta, Lamar, Red River, Titus, Morris, Bowie, and Cass. With a population of over 273,000 and roughly 1,100 staffed hospital beds, the average hospitalization rate has exceeded 15% for the past few days with more than 165 patients in the hospital with Covid-19. If this rate continues for seven consecutive days, more restrictions could be enforced on local businesses by the Governor of Texas.
