Abbott said the numbers in the blue line for Lubbock County is the total number of people added up on top of each other everyday who are testing positive.

“That angle is a steeper angle than some of these other counties,” he added.

Additionally, Abbott said since the latter part of March, the top number in the red line has stayed fairly consistent.

“The good news is they haven’t had any meanful spikes above what their consistent top number is,” he said. “That means there is some level of containment. Obviously we want to see those numbers on the red line go down. and that will show that Lubbock has gained control of the situation and should be moving toward a point of containment.”
