Hospitalizations remain high, though may be starting to drop, while infection numbers and positivity rates remain high and are falling. R Number models continue to show SF at or below 1.
The impressive dip in numbers last week seems to be taking a breather. Infection numbers and positivity rates have stalled their downward slide, but hospitalilzations have stalled their upward climb. Most R Number models show transmission rates trending downwards and some show remarkable lows.
Hospitalizations continue to rise, but at a slower pace while infections and positivity rates, though headed down, remain extremely elevated and most R Number models show a lot of virus still speading in the City.
Omicron continues out of control in the City as Infections, hospitalizations, positivity rates remain sky high. R Number models show no decrease in transmission rates.
No sign yet of an omicron retreat.
By any measure — infections, hospitalizations, positivity rates and R Numbers — San Francisco appears still in the thick of the omicron woods.
Infection numbers, and positivity rates, contiune to skyrocket after the holiday delays. Hospitalizations jumped, and R Number models continue to show rapidly increasing transmissibility.
Infection numbers, and positivity rates, though high, most likely reflect delays in reporting from formal test sites. Hospitalization are up some, as expected, and R Number models continue to show rapidly increasing transmissibility.
As infections, and positivity rates take off, local hospitalizations remain relatively subdued, mostly flat for the week. R Number models show substantial and increasing transmission rates.
Case counts took another jump over the weekend, while hospitalizations stayed in the mid-30s. As formal testing has increased, the positivity rate stays below 2, while the R Number models for San Francisco suggest increasing spread.
Covid hospitaliztions have jumped from 21 to 35 in a week as infections and positivity rates have also begun rising again and R Number estimates show increased virus spread.
Hospitalizations continue to fluctuate in the low 20s and cases continue to fluctuate in the 50s. The positivity rate has been falling and the R Number estimates are below or slightly above 1.
Hospitalizations have been recently trending downward, going below 20 for this first time since July 11. Stable case numbers, an average positivity rate below 2 percent and R Number models hanging around or below 1, suggest the virus may be taking a breather locally.
Case numbers, hospitalizations and positivity rates all seem more or less stuck on the current plateau. Hospitalizations have been fluctuating in the 40s and low 50s for most of October, while case numbers have hung in the low 50s for the past couple weeks. Positivity rates remain relatively low and the R Number remains below 1.
The recent rains did little to dampen the virus, which continues to circulate around town at relatively low levels.
