On Friday’s Houston Matters: As Texas hospitals are seeing a spike in coronavirus cases, we learn what kind of strain that puts on area hospitals and their finances.

Also this hour: Hubs, innovation nonprofits, accelerators — those terms all refer to companies that are in the business of helping to start up other businesses. We discuss how they work — and sometimes don’t.

Plus, we get some tips for small businesses struggling in the recession. And we check in with Harris County’s recovery czar State Rep. Armando Walle.

And, from increasing COVID-19 cases in Texas, to calls for HISD to disband its police force, we break down The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of the week’s news.
