Surge in coronavirus cases linked to more Texans in their 20s getting sick, officials say

Texans under the age of 30 are testing positive for the new coronavirus at a higher rate than previously seen since the pandemic began, contributing to a recent surge in the number of cases in the state, Gov. Greg Abbott said during a press conference Tuesday.

Data from several counties and health experts confirms the trend in younger people testing positive across Texas.

"There are certain counties where a majority of the people who are tested positive in that county are under the age of 30, and this typically results from people going to bars," Abbott said during the conference. "That is the case in Lubbock County, Bexar County, Cameron County."
