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.
Of McKinney ZIP codes, the 75071 ZIP code had the highest number of total cases, with 754, from March to Sept. 18, according to Collin County data.
As of Sept. 18, the 75069 ZIP code has a total of 686 cases, 75070 has 502 cases and 75072 has 205 cases.
Data as of Sept. 18 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.
Data shows 1,125 new COVID-19 cases in Collin County from Sept. 12-18. With 11,771 recovered cases and 136 people with COVID-19 dead, the total number of active cases in the county is 989. In total, there have been 12,760 confirmed cases in Collin County.
Among the key indicators being watched by experts is the number of hospitalizations. Collin County reported 90 COVID-19 patients were hospitalized as of Sept 18. That number has fluctuated since the beginning of the month.
Statewide, the number of patients who have tested positive with COVID-19 and are currently hospitalized is 3,172 as of Sept. 18. That compares with 3,465 patients who were hospitalized and had COVID-19 on Sept. 11.
One important metric 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. 17, the rate was 7.26%. Here is a look at the rate since early April.
