Good Morning, Mission! Welcome to Virus Village, your daily Covid-19 data dump.
It seems Dark Ages Donnie, our Cheerleader-in-Chief, did a face plant touting the imminent arrival of The Vaccine. According to a new poll, sixty-nine percent of Americans say they don’t have any confidence in Trump’s endorsement of the vaccine.
If a safe and effective vaccine is developed, can it be delivered? In over six months, the nation still can’t supply enough N95 masks for health care workers.
Compared to the Trump Maladministration, local corruption scandals may seem quaint. The DA is taking the latest one seriously.
And outdoor dining may linger in SF long after the virus (and smoke) has gone.
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.
Reported cases continue to rise. The seven-day average number of daily cases for the week ending September 15 rose to 64 or 7.4 cases per 100,000 residents. The average number of daily cases for the City’s Latinx population is roughly (given the data we have) 24 per 100,000 residents.
The number of hospitalizations remains stable, though for the week ending September 20, the rate of weekly change (one fo the City’s key indicators) showed a 15 percent decline. On Sunday there were 119 ICU and 431 Acute Care beds available.
