Thursday, April 9: three new cases no new deaths, total now 115 cases, 2 deaths:
Last report (Wednesday, April 8):
Solano County reported 3 NEW POSITIVE CASES today – total is now 115. No new deaths in Solano County – total of 2.
As of today:
- 1 positive case was a young person under 19 years of age
- 87 of the cases, 76%, were individuals between the ages of 19 and 64 (including 1 death)
- 27 of the cases, 23%, were 65 or older (including 1 death)
Only 39 of the 115 are active cases (same yesterday), and 32 of the cases have resulted in hospitalizations (5 more than yesterday).
CITY DATA: Vallejo added no new cases, total of 41; Fairfield added no cases, total of 31; and Vacaville added 2 new cases, total of 20. Smaller cities are still not assigned numerical data: all show <10 (less than 10). NOTE that the 3 major cities only account for 2 of the 3 new cases, implying that 1 new case must have come from one of our four smaller cities or unincorporated areas. Residents and city officials have been pressuring County officials for city case counts for the past two weeks. Today’s data is welcome, but incomplete.
TESTING is minimal in Solano County. I am told that the chart with blue bars (top, center), “Daily number of cases on the date that specimens were collected” shows why the County is interpreting a flattening of the curve. Note that the daily date in that chart refers to the date a sample was drawn and so reflects the lag time in testing. (This whole “flattening” thing is still a mystery to me!)
