Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner on Thursday showed his support for cleaning and sanitation workers working to maintain the public health amid the coronavirus pandemic. Turner was out watching the cleanup of a homeless camp situated in southeast Houston. According to the most recent count, there are about 3,900 homeless people in Houston, the mayor told reporters.
The goal of the cleanup is to do as much as possible to help keep them safe during the pandemic and eventually get homeless people into permanent supportive housing. Texas is now verging closer to 10,000 dead as a result of the coronavirus outbreak, with more than 520,000 reported cases.
