Data from Texas is still a bit wobbly due to storm-related reporting disruptions. It's likely that backlogs from the state have affected the 7-day case averages in the South.

February 25, 2021

Twitter
Texas reported relatively high numbers for new cases and deaths today, likely due in part to backlog clearing following the recent winter storms.

Twitter
Data from TX is still a bit wobbly. Total PCR tests (specimens) decreased by 85k without explanation, after increasing by over 400k yesterday.
