The Texas coronavirus death toll hit a single-day high of 50 Thursday.

The new figures come just as the state prepares for a slow reboot of one of the world's largest economies by re-opening retail, restaurants, malls and movies to limited amounts of customers.

Gov. Greg Abbott's "stay-at-home" order expires Friday.

The death toll of 119 over the past three days mark the deadliest stretch since the state's first fatality in the pandemic was recorded March 17.

Thursday's 1,033 new cases is the first time the state has been over 1,000 since April 8.
