Will “San Francisco that works for everyone”, work for anyone? Good question. A cynical answer might be the City will most likely continue to work for the privileged few. Like in NYC where private labs and “concierge” medical services provide quick test turnaround for rich partygoers. Last week the Governor announced with great fanfare, comparably quick testing will be available for all of us. By March 1, 2021.
And now onto the numbers.
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.
Reliance on the public health infrastructure has not worked well for those of us living in the south and southeastern neighborhoods of San Francisco where roughly 2/3 of SF cases have been reported. With 14 more cases reported in the Mission, our total now stands at 1270 positive cases as of August 28.
A week ago, the seven-day average number of daily cases dipped to 74. Approximately 1 in every 93 residents.
At 9.5 deaths per 100,000 residents, the rate has risen in the past couple weeks, but is still relatively low, especially when compared to cities with similar density.
