LUBBOCK, Texas (NEWS RELEASE) — The following is a news release from the City of Lubbock:

As of 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, January 10, 2021, the City of Lubbock confirmed 177 new cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19), 311 recoveries and 6 additional deaths. The total number of cases in Lubbock County is 44,411: 3,523 active, 40,277 listed as recovered and 611 total deaths.

Since the 4:00 p.m. cut-off yesterday, 4 additional cases were identified as duplicates or transferred to the correct jurisdiction. These cases have been adjusted into the cumulative totals.

As of 4:00 p.m. there are a combined 36 open hospital beds and 8 patients holding for beds at University Medical Center and Covenant Health System. Note that this reflects staffed beds open to receive patients and differs from the available bed count shown on the DSHS and the City of Lubbock dashboards. These dashboards count all available beds, including specialty beds, such as pediatrics, PICU, outpatient, psychiatric and others, as well as hospitalized patients in the 22 county Trauma Service Area.

Lubbock remains above the 15% threshold where the percentage of COVID-19 confirmed patients in regional hospitals as a percentage of available hospital beds. Today’s COVID-19 hospitalization percentage was not available at time of release. Trauma Service Area B will remain under the additional restrictions outlined under Governor Abbott’s Executive Orders until we remain below 15% for seven consecutive days.
