Another three local residents’ deaths were caused by COVID-19, according to a Monday announcement by Denton County Public Health.
DCPH had confirmed a total of 735 COVID-19 deaths in Denton County by Monday afternoon, but confirmation of such deaths lags significantly behind the actual day of deaths in many cases.
The department released the following information about the three deaths confirmed Monday:
- One Denton man who was at least 80 years old
- Two men in their 70s who lived in unincorporated northeast Denton County
DCPH on Monday also confirmed another 176 locals had tested positive for the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.
According to a Texas Health and Human Services dashboard, 60.6% of Denton County residents who are at least 5 years old were fully vaccinated by early Monday afternoon. The same was true for only 58.6% of all Texans in the same category.
