The highest number of college students fighting coronavirus can be found in…

…California? Florida? Texas? Somewhere else?

The Houston Chronicle (there’s your big hint) has the answer.

Of more than 6,600 counted cases of COVID-19 on college campuses around the country, Texas accounted for at least 1,569 of those cases, and the University of Texas at Austin topped the list, according to data compiled by the New York Times.

UT-Austin, the flagship for the UT System, came in at No. 1 with 449 cases. UT’s digital dashboard, which records the number of COVID-19 cases within its community on its website, cites a total of 459 cases as of Thursday evening, with 287 students and 172 faculty who have tested positive since March 1.
