“Today Texas reported: * 0 Covid related deaths–the only time that’s happened since data was tracked in March, 2020. * the fewest Covid cases in over 13 months * the lowest 7-day Covid positivity rate ever * the lowest Covid hospitalizations in 11 months. Thanks, Texans!” posted Abbott on Twitter.

President Biden infamously labeled Abbott’s decision to re-open the Lone Star State in March as an example of “Neanderthal thinking.”
“Do you have a message for Texas and Mississippi?” asked one reporter on March 4th.
“I think it’s a big mistake. Look, I hope everybody has realized by now that these masks make a difference. We’re on the cusp of being able to change the nature of this disease because of the way we’re getting vaccines into people’s arms. We’ve moved that up to May,” said Biden.
“The last thing we need is Neanderthal thinking that in the meantime, everything is fine!” he added. “It still matters.”

'ROUTINE ERROR': 6,700 North Carolina Residents ‘Incorrectly Told They Have Coronavirus’ via Text
Nearly 7,000 residents in North Carolina were told via text message last week that they tested positive for the Coronavirus despite not actually having contracted the disease.
“More than 6,700 individuals in Mecklenburg County in North Carolina were told in a text message sent from Mecklenburg County Health Department on Friday that they tested positive for COVID-19 and over 500 people were told through a county email that they were also infected with the novel coronavirus. But the results were incorrect due to a technical error by Health Space, the company they use for contact tracing, according to a statement on the county’s website,” reports Fox News.
“An error during routine maintenance last Friday resulted in a county data vendor sending erroneous texts and email messages to people saying they were positive for COVID-19,” the statement on the county website said.
“Very quickly we began to work with the vendor to understand the issue and make sure that it did not continue. Once corrected we were told that 6,727 text messages and 541 emails were sent to individuals who were already in their system. We then worked with the vendor to send a corrected text/email to all that received the erroneous one,” the email stated in part.
