Good Morning Mission, and welcome to Virus Village, your daily Covid-19 data dump.

With 80 percent of the population over 12 having received at least one shot and 70 percent fully vaccinated, San Francisco has the highest vaccination rate among major U.S. cities.

As the Delta variant continues to spread through Britain, the June 21st reopening now looks like it won’t happen for a while. For an overview of the variant is up to in Britain, check here and here.

Much talk about global vaccination, but no action at the G7. The Biden Administration has pledged a paltry 500 million vaccine doses to the rest of the world. Vaccinating the world would not cost as much as you might think.

As San Francisco reopens, it’s time to get back to basics.

Scroll down for today’s Covid numbers.

The CDC data used for the chart lags behind the data supplied from SFDPH. As of June 11, DPH reports over 80 percent (630,307) of San Francisco residents over 12 have received one dose, and 70 percent (552,051) are completely vaccinated.  On June 11, the seven-day rolling average of shots per day was 2,602.

Between May 9 and June 8, DPH reports 39 positive tests in the Mission or a rate of 6.54 new cases per 10,000 residents. Bayview Hunters Point remains the City’s hottest Covid spot with 66 positive tests or 17.65 new cases per 10,000 residents. Are old patterns re-emerging? Only Bayview Hunters Point, Visitacion Valley, Oceanview/Ingleside and the Mission reported more than 20 positive tests .

For the week ending June 4, the seven-day rolling average of daily new cases in the City was 14 new cases, or 1.6 new cases per day per 100,000 residents.

The latest report from the federal Department of Health and Human Services shows SFGH with 6 Covid patients and 80 percent ICU occupancy, while across the Mission, CPMC had 0 Covid patients and 37 percent ICU occupancy. Of 15 reported Covid patients, 13 were at either SFGH or UCSF.

  1. Hi Mark, thanks so much for continuing to report! Quick question, are there any stats on how many of the positive cases are in people who are fully vaccinated?
