After a few quiet days where only a few dozen new COVID-19 cases were reported, Tarrant County reported 151 new cases Wednesday and 11 more deaths.

Data released by the Tarrant County Public Health Department Wednesday brings the total number of cases in the county to 5,190; 155 people have died after contracting the infection. There are an estimated 2,010 recoveries in the county along with 3,025 active cases of the infection.

The deceased include a man in his 80s, a man in his 60s, two women in their 70s, and two women in their 80s, all from Fort Worth; a man in his 80s from Arlington, a woman in her 80s and a man over 90, both from Keller, a man in his 70s from Mansfield and a woman in her 90s from White Settlement.

All but one had underlying health conditions.

Of the deaths in the county, 68% are of those aged 65 and older. That same group, however, only makes up 17% of all cases in the county. Most of the infections, 37%, come from those aged 25 to 44.

The average case doubling time in Tarrant County is at 26 days. The doubling time is calculated as an average of the previous week and is updated every Sunday. The most recent update was May 24.

Tarrant County did not report any cases over the Memorial Day holiday and reported fewer than 100 news cases from Saturday through Tuesday.
