HOSPITALIZATIONS: 51 of Solano’s 226 cases resulted in hospitalizations (1 more than previous report).
The County’s “Hospital Impact” graph (below) shows that only 9 of the 51 hospitalized cases are currently hospitalized, 2 less than previously reported. Note also that only 9 of the 44 active cases are currently hospitalized. The County’s count of ICU beds available returned to “GOOD” and ventilator supply continues “GOOD” at 31-100%. (No information is given on our supply of test kits, PPE and staff.)
- Vallejo added 11 of today’s 27 new cases, total of 96.
- Fairfield added 5 of today’s 27 new cases, 53 cases.
- Vacaville added 6 of today’s 27 new cases, total of 34.
- Suisun City added 4 of today’s 27 new cases, total of 15 cases.
- Benicia remains at 12 cases.
- Dixon, Rio Vista and “Unincorporated” are still not assigned numerical data: today all remain at <10 (less than 10). 1 new case unaccounted for above would have come from one of these jurisdictions. Residents and city officials have been pressuring County officials for city case counts for many weeks. Today’s data is welcome, but still incomplete.
The County reports that 3,065 residents have been tested as of today. This is an increase of 438 individuals tested since Friday’s total of 2,627. THIS IS AN IMPROVEMENT! A week ago, around 150 new tests were reported daily. The numbers dropped to well under 50 per day all last week. So something has ramped up over the weekend. We have a long way to go, though. Under 7 tenths of 1% of Solano County’s 447,643 residents (2019) have been tested.
The blue bars in the chart, “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.
