Harris and Galveston counties track coronavirus by city

Harris County updated a list of confirmed coronavirus cases by municipality om Saturday, though some cities are spread across more than one county, making the data appear incomplete.

League City, for example, which is shown as having only one case on the Harris County list, is primarily in Galveston County. According to a city official, League City, which has a population of more than 106,200 has 111 cases.

Pearland, a city of approximately 122,150 people, was listed with only seven cases in Harris County. But much of the city is in Brazoria County. Officials there could not be reached.

Cases of COVID-19 are likely higher than what was reported in the county list released late Friday, as testing capacity has been limited. Officials Saturday said the amount of tests at city and county sites would double to 500 per day.
