The Williamson County and Cities Health District reported 41 new coronavirus cases and no new deaths Aug. 21. The total number of cases is 7,687.

To date, 71 patients are hospitalized, 28 are in intensive care and 15 are on a ventilator. The WCCHD also reported 25% of hospital beds, 17% of ICU beds and 81% of ventilators are available.

The death total is 112. The death toll is now based on death certificates, which may cause a delay in reporting.

Of the total cases reported, 7,079 are estimated to have recovered, and there are an estimated 608 active cases.

Recoveries are not reported to the state’s contact tracing and data system; therefore, recovery information is not absolute and is to be used for estimating purposes only, according to the WCCHD website. No trends or other inferences should be drawn from this data, as the numbers posted represent a point-in-time snapshot and may fluctuate throughout the day, it said.

Here is an update on total cases in the cities of residence including probable cases, according to the WCCHD.

  • Austin: 486

  • Cedar Park: 806

  • Georgetown: 1,309

  • Hutto: 520

  • Leander: 407

  • Round Rock: 2,376

  • Other: 923

If the WCCHD is unable to confirm the city of residence after three attempts, the case is deemed “lost to follow-up” and is not included in the above count, officials said.

Officials said the county is not legally able to release the specific counts in cities with fewer than 20,000 residents. For more information, such as gender and age breakdowns, visit the county's dashboard.
