AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - The number of newly reported cases of the coronavirus in Texas has taken a jump. State health officials reported 5,335 new cases on Wednesday, 40% more than the 3,812 new cases reported Tuesday.

The true number of cases is likely higher though because many people haven’t been tested and studies suggest people can be infected and not feel sick. The Texas Department of State Health Services reported 107 new COVID-19 deaths, a 51% increase from the Tuesday total.
