AUSTIN (KXAN) — The positive test rate for COVID-19 hit a record high in Texas Wednesday.
Almost 40% of tests came back positive, but it’s from a smaller pool of 23,000 tests. That is the smallest number of daily tests reported in the state since late June.
In a video lasting less than five minutes, Amanda Dugan and Will DuPree discuss that story along with these others in the latest KXAN Live News Notes:
