Good Morning, Mission! Welcome to Virus Village, your daily Covid-19 data dump.
While eating an overpriced burger, you might wonder how much these firms, who spend billions on propaganda, have contributed to fighting fires or containing the virus?
Scroll down for today’s 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.
As case numbers rise in the Mission, across the City they are falling. The seven-day average number of daily cases for the week ending September 10 was 53, or 6.1 cases per 100,000 residents. Overall the City remains in the DPH red “high alert” zone.
After a spike earlier this week, hospitalizations for confirmed and suspected Covid patients continues to decline as reflected by the raw numbers and the rate of weekly change. With 38 percent of ICU beds available, and 23 percent of Acute Care beds available, DPH reports hospitals are prepared to handle a potential surge.
