Officials provided reassurances for patients at hospital and clinic facilities in Llano recently about their aim to mitigate the spread of cases of COVID-19.

He said researchers are still trying to figure out why the virus attacks some more seriously than others, and called it “sneaky” in the way it attacks victims.
