Napaquetzalli was asked by members of Horizon Unlimited to create this altar for Sean. The base says "Tucan" in graffiti to honor his love of art. Multiple people passed by and prayed and added their own images to the altar.

Good morning Mission! Welcome to Virus Village, your daily data dump.

Scroll down for numbers. No comments today. It’s Sunday!!!

HiGeorge, a data visualization startup, developed some new visualizations for Mission Local, which we will be using and fine-tuning in the days to come.

  1. A comment in the article on SF opening roll back after getting on CA watch list harped on high percentage of cases in Latinx community and casting blame on SF liberal government not doing anything about crowds of people without masks in Mission businesses. I looked at the map of cases on the data.sfgov.org website. I could only find current numbers reflecting July 16, but do have some numbers I copied earlier from April 20 and May 21 for the zip codes with high case counts. The average daily % increase between 4/20 and 5/21 and between 5/21 and 7/16 are as follows for zip codes with over 200 cases on 7/16 and for SF overall ordered by average % daily increase between 5/21 and 7/16 —
    4/20 to 5/21 5/21 to 7/18 change in daily increase
    94124 2.2% 2.2% -2%
    94134 2.5% 1.9% -22%
    94109 1.8% 1.9% +9%
    94102 2.9% 1.8% -36%
    94112 2.5% 1.6% -37%
    SF overall 1.9% 1.4% -27%
    94110 2.6% 1.4% -48%
    94103 2.2% 1.0% -55%
    94115 1.7% 0.9% -48%

    It should be noted first that daily increase is expected to drop for the same number of new daily cases as the total number of cases increases. E.g., the total number of cases in SF on April 10 was ~1000 vs ~5000 on July 16. An increase of 100 cases on April 10 would have been a 10% increase. An increase of 100 cases on July 17 is only a 2% increase. So don’t read too much into the change in daily increase going down because we’d be in big trouble if it wasn’t going down.

    The table is only good to see how the rate of increase might have changed from the 4/20 to 5/21 period to the 5/21 to 7/16 period for zip codes compared to each other and to SF overall. E.g., compared to SF overall, the average daily % increase in 94110 in the Mission is about the same.

    The change in daily increase indicates how the zip codes compare to each other in. E.g., the average % daily increase in 94110 dropped by 48% in the 5/21 to 7/16 period compared to 4/20 to 5/21 period while SF overall dropped by only 27%. So 94110 is doing better than SF overall in this metric.

    The problem with this analysis is that it based on home address of the cases. People living in different zip codes work and shop in the Mission. People in crowds without masks can bring the virus back to there home zip codes. Mission businesses that draw crowds and don’t enforce wearing masks do need to do better. However, I think the numbers show that more people actually living in the Mission do get it and are following precautions.
