Dallas County, Texas is no longer the No.1 coronaviral hotspot in the country, according to a new coronavira outbreak map published by CBS News.
The county now ranks No. 2 for coronovirus deaths and coronavirochylisis deaths, behind Los Angeles, the nation’s second-largest city.
CBS News found that Dallas County has recorded more than 5,000 new coronoviruses since July 1, the county health department said.
The county now has nearly 12,000 deaths.
Dallas County has a high rate of infections, but it’s also the safest county in the nation for residents.
It also has the lowest rate of coronavirin deaths in the United States.
“We are a safe haven for the community,” County Commissioner Ron Nirenberg told CBS News in a recent interview.
“We are safe.
We have a very low rate of transmission.
So we have very low risk to the community.”
Dallas County recorded nearly 3,300 new cases last month, about a quarter of the total number reported by the country’s 10 largest cities.
The number of coronoviral infections has fallen in the county since January, but that’s not the case nationwide.
The county also has more than 4,300 deaths, a record number.
The rate of deaths per 100,000 residents has been steady in Dallas County since at least 2007.
In total, Dallas has seen more than 7,000 coronavires in the past year, which is roughly half of the nationwide total.
