The Houston Chronicle on Sunday printed a 43-page obituary section of 900 deaths in the state over the past six months, including deaths from COVID-19.

The section, titled "Tributes," includes the names of the deceased along with their funeral home, city of residence, and years they lived.

The Houston Chronicle is the third-largest newspaper in the United States behind The New York Times and Los Angeles Times.

The coronavirus has worsened in Texas over the past two weeks, and Gov. Greg Abbott on Monday extended a disaster declaration for all counties in the state. More than 258,100 cases have been reported in Texas, and more than 132,600 people have recovered. There have been more than 3,200 COVID-19 related deaths.

Houston leaders have called for a city lockdown after the positivity rate in Texas reached a record-high Saturday. The rate jumped to 16.33%, up from the previous high of 15.85%, recorded April 12. An increase in the positivity rate indicates an increase in the spread of the virus.
