Nearly half of all ICU patients in North Texas have COVID-19. Governor Abbott tests negative four days after positive test.

There are 3,049 COVID-19 patients in North Texas hospitals representing 22.62 percent of available bed capacity and 48.79 percent of adult ICU patients, DFW Hospital CEO Steve Love reports.
