*Numbers and percentages might vary from the previous COVID-19 report due to additional data becoming available for non-finalized surveillance years. COVID-19 case data for 2020-2021 are finalized. All other data are provisional and subject to change.
**Cases for the current week include both cases reported in the last week and may include newly reported cases from prior weeks.

COVID-19 cases reported increased in Texas by 3.1% in Week 2 compared to the previous MMWR week.

COVID-19-associated fatalities increased 30.4% in Week 51 when compared to the previous week. COVID-19-associated fatalities are shown by week during which the death occurred, up to three weeks prior to current report week because death certificates are required to be filed within 10 days of date of death.

Note: Cumulative counts will consistently reflect all cases within the National Electronic Disease Surveillance System as of report date. Counts may include cases which were provided after initial reporting, such as backlogged cases; and reflect regular case quality assurance updates.
