From Texas Public Radio:
San Antonio has arrived at a grim milestone. The local health department confirmed the 1,000th death from COVID-19 on Sunday. In total, Metro Health has confirmed 1,016 deaths.
Mayor Ron Nirenberg has a common refrain at the daily COVID-19 briefings.
“We say this every night: Behind every datapoint is a person with a life lived,” he said on July 9, when the city’s total death tally reached 165. “Our hearts are with their families, their friends and their loved ones.”
