As of 11 a.m. July 7, 2020, Dallas reported 1,077 additional positive cases of coronavirus and 9 additional deaths, bringing total deaths in Dallas County to 410.
The deaths ranged from men and women in their 60s to 90s. Some had underlying health conditions and some didn’t.
An overwhelming number of positive cases come from adults between the ages of 18-39. More than half the cases since June 1 have come from this age range, according to the county.
The increasing number of cases is attributed to social gatherings at homes, bars and other places where social distancing guidelines are not always met.
The race most impacted in Dallas is the Hispanic community, with more than 6,600 cases and 100 deaths were reported as of June 2020.
The most at-risk people remain those over the age of 65, and people who have underlying health conditions. However, Dallas County reports that more than two-thirds of hospitalizations come from people under the age of 65. Around half do not have high-risk conditions.
