Tarrant County Public Health Reports 127 COVID-19 Deaths

Jan. 8, 2021 (Tarrant County) - Tarrant County Public Health (TCPH) today reports 127 COVID-19 deaths. There were 71 deaths in December, 39 in November, and 17 in October.

TCPH receives notifications of people with COVID-19 from clinics, hospitals, long term care facilities, laboratories, schools, the medical examiner, the state health and other local health departments. TCPH also receives reports of deaths of people who have COVID-19 from the same sources. However, a death may occur in a different place and weeks after original diagnosis. When this occurs the death may not get reported to the local health department. To address this problem, The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) has begun sharing with local health departments the death certificate information where the cause or other conditions listed indicate COVID-19. TCPH is now using that data to find additional deaths of Tarrant County residents. Each week, data received from DSHS is compiled and reconciled against previously known deaths and where the person lived. This data is reported each Friday. As a result, the number of deaths reported out are expected to be greater on Friday.
