Dallas County reported four additional deaths and 181 new positive cases of the coronavirus Saturday.
The four deaths included a Irving man in his 20s, a Richardson man in his 70s, a Grand Prairie man in his 70s and a Mesquite man in his 90s who had been a resident at a long-term care facility.
The new cases bring the county's total to 110 deaths — 29 of which were reported this week — and 3,899 cases.
“Today’s total for positive cases ranks second highest of the outbreak, eclipsed only by yesterday’s positive cases," Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins said in a written statement. "Last week, our daily average of new cases was 84. This week it jumped to 141."
He said the county saw a 38% increase in deaths over last week, but four fewer people died than two weeks ago.
