They are not even protecting the babies?

Eighty-five infants under age 1 have tested positive for coronavirus in one Texas county. And local officials are imploring residents to help stop its spread as the state becomes one of the newest hotspots.

Since January, health authorities have identified more than 3.6 million Covid-19 cases throughout the United States. Nearly 140,000 people have died, according to Johns Hopkins University.

In Texas’ Nueces County, where Corpus Christi is located, the number of new coronavirus cases skyrocketed in July after a flattening trend. The virus has infected dozens of babies and local officials are urging people to wear masks and practice social distancing.

“We currently have 85 babies under the age of one year in Nueces County that have all tested positive for Covid-19,” said Annette Rodriguez, director of public health for Corpus Christi Nueces County.

“These babies have not even had their first birthday yet. Please help us stop the spread of this disease.”

Texas has had over 330,000 cases of the Coronavirus, with over half of those still active. 

The place is yet another hot spot created by a Republican government that did not take this seriously, and how its citizens and infants are paying the price.
