Editor's note: A portion of this story citing data by the Institute for Urban Policy Research at The University of Texas at Dallas has been removed due to old data. This story incorrectly stated the data was from Aug. 10.

Total COVID-19 cases in Tarrant County surpassed 34,000 as of Aug. 10.


Among the cities of Grapevine, Colleyville and Southlake, Grapevine had the highest number of total confirmed cases, with more than double the counts of Colleyville and Southlake. That brings the total number of cases in Grapevine, which also has the largest population among the three cities, to 543.

The second-highest number of total cases among the three cities was Southlake, which reported a total of 269 cases. Colleyville reported a total of 215 cases, data shows.

In Tarrant County, there have been a total of 34,165 cases of the coronavirus. That is a 35.6% increase in the total number of confirmed cases since July 20. This brings the total number of cases in Tarrant County to 34,165, according to data.


Data shows those in the 25-44 age group in Tarrant County have had the highest number of positive cases, followed by ages 45-64.


In addition, the data shows 123 deaths in Tarrant County since July 20. The total deaths since tracking began in March is 422 for Tarrant County. Those age 65 and older account for 68.3% of all deaths in the county thus far.

Among the key indicators to watch among health experts is the number of hospitalizations. Tarrant County reported 452 lab-confirmed COVID-19 patients hospitalized as of Aug. 10. That number has declined over the last two weeks.
