COVID-19 surge in Texas sparks reopening fears

Rising coronavirus cases and hospitalizations in Texas are underscoring fears about the danger of reopening, according to The Hill.

The state has been relatively aggressive about reopening, lifting its stay-at-home order on May 1 and gradually increasing capacity at shops, bars and restaurants since then.  Now, though, the state is seeing a surge of cases of the coronavirus.  The state reached a new high of coronavirus hospitalizations on Monday, with 1,935 people hospitalized with the illness, according to state data.
