There were 13,254 newly reported coronavirus cases and 235 additional deaths in Texas on Saturday, according to the state health department.

There have been 1,321,578 total cases reported and 23,800 people having died of COVID-19 since the pandemic began.

The health department reported the number of hospitalizations increased slightly from Friday, rising from 9,109 to 9,192.

The seven-day rolling average of new cases in the state rose from 10,621 per day on Nov. 27 to 11,295 on Friday and the rolling average of deaths increased from 130 to 185 per day during the same time period, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.

The true number of infections in Texas is likely higher because many haven't been tested, and studies suggest people can be infected and not feel sick.

During the past two weeks the seven-day rolling average of new cases in the state rose from 10,621 per day on Nov. 27 to 11,295 on Friday and the rolling average of deaths increased from 130 to 185 per day during the same time period.
