City of Lubbock confirmed 308 Additional COVID-19 Cases, 16 Deaths



As of 4:00 p.m. on Friday, December 11, 2020, the City of Lubbock confirmed 308 new cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19), 223 recoveries and 16 additional deaths. The total number of cases in Lubbock County is 35,977: 4,489 active, 31,049 listed as recovered and 439 total deaths.


Since the 4:00 PM cut off yesterday, four cases were identified as duplicates or reassigned to the correct jurisdiction. These cases have been adjusted into the cumulative totals.


As of 4:00 p.m. there are a combined 10 open hospital beds and 32 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.
