Dallas County does not report recoveries from COVID-19 because it lacks the manpower to follow up with thousands of patients, however, the Texas Department of State Health Services posts an estimated number of recoveries on its site and lists 33,959 for Dallas County as of Saturday, August 1. Using data supplied by the state, there are an estimated 14,680 active COVID-19 cases in the county.
