Another 25 additional deaths were reported in Hidalgo County on Wednesday, and county Judge Richard F. Cortez has expressed concern in a news release over the age of those dying.
“The death toll continues and so does the tragedy of this disease,” Cortez said in the release. “Unfortunately, we are seeing younger people dying from this virus. This is a real threat that we can survive as long as we take the proper precautions. Evidence shows that it can kill any person of any age. I extend my condolences to the family and friends of those who have perished.”
