HOUSTON — Houston’s elected officials are begging people to get tested for COVID-19 as the city saw four consecutive days of increased daily new cases.
The Houston Health Department reported 1,456 new cases and 14 newly reported coronavirus deaths on Saturday, making it the fourth-straight day of at least 1,000 new cases.
From July 17 to July 23, the city was averaging 820 new reported cases a day.
Houston Health Authority Dr. David Persse said Friday that fewer people were going to get tested at the city’s testing sites at Delmar and Butler Stadiums.
He said bad weather was one factor, citing sites being completely closed or temporarily closed six
