Good Morning, Mission! Welcome to Virus Village, your daily Covid-19 data dump.
So where did Mayor Breed come up with the $28.5 million she announced last month to focus on the Covid-19 needs of the Latinx population?

Registered nurses at SF General are suing DPH for wage theft!
Data collection was one of the key police reforms mandated a few years ago after a series of reports found unaccountabity, lack of transparency and pervasive racial bias infecting the SFPD. The reform minded cops then set out to comply and collect data they did. Too bad they didn’t bother to analyze or follow the data they collected.
