Death from COVID-19 has now surpassed 70,000 in Texas. Texas only trails California, a state with over ten million more people. However, Dr. Peter Hotez with the Baylor College of Medicine says the actual total may be higher. Many people who died at home may have had COVID, but it wasn’t on their death certificate. A report from “Texas Cares at the UT School of Public Health shows 75 percent of all Texans have COVID antibodies, either from infection or vaccine. Hotez says those with so-called natural immunity from the disease are five to six times more likely to get infected again than people vaccinated.
