City-level reports from Collin County show total active cases of COVID-19 in McKinney slightly increased since last week.
The total number of active COVID-19 cases in McKinney is at 100 as of Sept. 11. On Sept. 4, there were 92 active cases.
As of Sept. 11, there have been 2,070 confirmed total cases of COVID-19 in McKinney and 1,934 recoveries, for a 93.4% recovery rate.
There have been 36 total deaths in McKinney related to COVID-19, for a rate of 1.7%.
On Aug. 21, the city of McKinney paused its daily reports following Collin County's shift to reporting only raw data from the state. The county has since decided to share some data at the city level again and is working with the state to resolve issues of "confidence" with the accuracy of its reporting, according to an Aug. 24 post by Collin County Judge Chris Hill.
A group of dedicated investigators launched by the Texas Department of State Health Services was expected to begin working through the backlog of Collin County's COVID-19 active cases Aug. 25, according to Hill.
Data as of Sept. 11 shows that the 20-29 age group in McKinney has had the highest number of total COVID-19 cases, but that age group is closely followed by those ages 40-49 and ages 30-39, respectively.
In addition, the data shows 508 new COVID-19 cases in Collin County from Sept. 5-Sept. 11. With 11,102 recovered cases and 122 people with COVID-19 dead, the total number of active cases in the county is 632. In total, there have been 11,804 confirmed cases in Collin County.
Among the key indicators being watched by experts is the number of hospitalizations. Collin County reported 78 COVID-19 patients were hospitalized as of Sept 11. That number has generally decreased since the beginning of the month.
Statewide, the number of patients who have tested positive with COVID-19 and are currently hospitalized is 3,465 as of Sept. 11. That compares with 4,075 patients who were hospitalized and had COVID-19 on Sept. 3.
Other key indicators being watched by experts is the state’s positivity rate, which hit a record high in Texas on Aug. 11 with a rate of 24.5%. The rate is averaged over the previous seven days and calculates the ratio of positive new cases compared with the number of tests. Gov. Greg Abbott has previously said that a rate of 10% or more is cause for concern. On Sept. 10, the rate was 6.90%. Here is a look at the rate since early April.
