Good Morning, Mission! Welcome to Virus Village, your daily Covid-19 data dump.
Covid Tracker will be publishing later in the day through Sunday this week. Next Monday we will return to the usual time.
Hot weather but pretty cool numbers, which would be cooler if not for the continuing rise in deaths. Most likely these deaths are following the rise surge we experienced in July, but we haven’t heard anythng from local officials.
While SF continues to experience low case numbers, positivity rates and hospitalizations, the same is not true across the country. In some cities and states, hospitals and healthcare workers are beginning to get overwhelmed. Some ascribe the increase to cooling autumn days.
Scroll down for today’s Covid 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.
The seven-day average number of SF daily cases for the week ending October 13 was 29, or 3.3 cases per 100,000 residents.
