Abbott Sends Help To El Paso For COVID Surge

Governor Abbott is sending in extra help to El Paso after a surge of COVID-19 cases. Abbott says the Texas Dept. of State Health Services and the Texas Division of Emergency Management will have dozens of nurses, respiratory therapists, and plenty of personal protective equipment to help hospitals dealing with infected patients. Chris Van Duesen, with the Texas Dept. of State Health Services, says the state has about 4,000 doctors and specialists available to help with surges. El Paso County reports a new record number of active cases at 6,145, a sharp rise since the pandemic began.
