A 79-year-old Fairview man with COVID-19 and an underlying medical condition died in a McKinney Hospital early Sunday morning, according to a report received today by Collin County Health Care Services (CCHCS). Out of respect for his family, no further personal information is being released.
As of this morning, the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) reported 3,114 total confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Collin County, with 2,396 of those individuals reported to have recovered.
This is the 45th fatality of a county resident with COVID-19 reported to county health authorities.
For clarity, DSHS assumed all new case reporting and contact tracing for Collin County on June 1. Because the county receives death reports from local sources sooner than the state, county health authorities continue to report COVID-19 related deaths.
