Corpus Christi Nueces County Public Health Director Annette Rodriguez said on Friday that the 85 infants were all younger than one year, but offered no other details - including how the children are suspected to have become infected. "Please help us to stop the spread of this disease" by staying home except for necessary trips, socially distancing and wearing masks in public, Rodriguez said during a public health update in Corpus Christi.

"These babies have not even had their first birthday yet".

One Texas county is reporting a scary and downright troubling coronavirus trend - their babies are testing positive.

Corpus Christi City Manager Peter Zanoni noted the county has the "fastest growth in new cases on the seven-day average" of all Texas' metropolitan counties. According to a report on Yahoo.com, 8,100 people in the county have tested positive, and, so far 82 have died.

Texas is among about two dozen states fighting rapid increases in infections after quickly reopening their economies, along with states like Florida, Arizona and Oklahoma.

In Cameron and Hidalgo counties, health officials are amassing refrigerated trucks for body storage because morgues won't have enough room.

As of Saturday afternoon, more than 317,000 coronavirus cases and almost 4,000 related fatalities had been reported in the state, according to Texas Health and Human Services' COVID-19 case dashboard.
