Tarrant County Public Health is reporting 118 confirmed new cases of COVID-19 Monday with no new deaths.
Of the 131 cases reported Monday, 118 are confirmed and 14 are probable. It's not clear if any of the 118 cases are from the Department of State Health Services backlog.
The county began reporting both probable and confirmed cases earlier this month at the request of the state health department. Probable cases, the county said, account for a variety of real-world situations and could highlight cases in the community that may otherwise go unreported. To date, the county has reported 39,334 confirmed cases of the virus and 2,283 probable cases for a total of 41,617 cases.
The county is also reporting another 181 new estimated recoveries, bringing the total number of survivors to 35,975. There are currently an estimated 5,090 active cases in the county.
Of the county's cases, 71% of those who have died were over the age of 65. Those aged 25 to 44 make up the largest percentage of people with COVID-19 at 38%.
The health department reports 221 COVID-19 patients are currently occupying hospital beds in the county -- about 5% of capacity. A month ago, on July 31 COVID-19 patients occupied about 11% of Tarrant County hospital beds.
With the recent changes to their reporting system, Tarrant County Public Health said changes have also been made to their online dashboard, most notably to the Case Counts tab and Cases by Location tab. The Case Counts tab now includes cases reported by week, including both probable and confirmed, while the Cases by Location tab includes a map showing the 30-day average infection rate by ZIP code.
