DALLAS (AP) — Texas health officials say 785 additional residents have tested positive for COVID-19 and there have been another 31 deaths linked to the novel coronavirus. The Texas Department of State Health Services on Sunday reported at total of 47,784 confirmed cases of the virus and 1,336 deaths associated with it. The true numbers are likely higher because many people have not been tested and studies suggest people can be infected and not feel sick. For most people, the coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks.
