The collective efforts going into putting an end to COVID and the pandemic are going to pay off, and are already starting to. In this week’s “Viral Thoughts” staff reporter Haille Hughes discusses the decrease in Texas’s COVID cases.

Decrease in Texas COVID-19 cases

With the exception of one or two days, Texas has steadily kept new COVID cases under 10,000 over the past month. This is particularly due to the fact that vaccines are becoming more widely available and easy to access. As of right now, Texas has administered the first dose to 32.4% of its population, and the second dose to 18.1%. 

As new vaccine locations are opened up, it’s hopeful that these percentages will rise. Especially due to the CDC rewarding three billion dollars in funding across the U.S, with a little over 58 million going towards Texas.

The collective efforts going into putting an end to COVID and the pandemic are going to pay off, and are already starting to. While some vaccines are better than others, it’s all part of the trial and error process, which is bound to happen. However, it allows us to get a grasp of what does and does not work, inevitably contributing to the greater good. 

Texas’s recent decrease is an extremely good thing. With only a few months left in the school year, it definitely leaves the possibility for an amazing, and safe, summer.
