  • Solano County reported 8 new positive cases today, total of 517.
  • No new deaths today, total of 22.
  • The County reports an increase of 9 hospitalizations since the outbreak began, but only 1 new active hospitalization.  Correcting old errors, perhaps, adding some that weren’t reported previously?

BY AGE GROUP

  • No new cases were reported today among young persons under 19 years of age, total of 27 cases, increasing over the last two weeks to 5.3% of total confirmed cases(See table below.)
  • 5 of today’s new cases were persons 19-64 years of age, total of 365 cases, 71% of the total.   No new deaths in this age group today, total of 5.  Note that 49 of the 365 cases in this age group have been hospitalized at one time, 13% of total cases in the age group(It is unclear whether the 5 deaths were ever hospitalized.)
  • 2 of today’s new cases were persons 65 or older, total of 124 cases, 24% of the total.  No new deaths, total of 17.  Note that 34 of the 124 cases in this age group, an increase of 3, (27%) were hospitalized at one time, more than double the percentage in the mid-age group(It is unclear whether the 17 deaths in this age group were ever hospitalized.)
  • NOTE: The County reported 8 new cases overall today, but only 7 assigned to an age group.  This is likely to be corrected tomorrow.

CITY DATA

  • Vallejo added 4 of today’s new cases, total of  293.
  • Fairfield added 3 of today’s new cases, total of 101.
  • Vacaville added 1 of today’s new cases, total of 54.
  • Suisun City remained at 25 cases.
  • Benicia remained at 23 cases.
  • Dixon remained at 11 cases.
  • Rio Vista and “Unincorporated” are still not assigned numerical data: today both remain at <10 (less than 10).  The total numbers for other cities add up to 507, leaving 10 cases somewhere among the 2 locations in this “<10” category (same as last reported).  Residents and city officials have pressured County officials for city case counts.  Today’s data is welcome, but still incomplete.

UPWARD TREND IN HOSPITALIZATIONS?
84 of Solano’s 517 cases resulted in hospitalizations since the outbreak started, 9 more than yesterday.  This is an important stat to watch.  On May 1 there were 51 hospitalizations, and the daily increase has been relatively steady, adding 2 or less each day.  Exception: a week ago, on May 22, the County reported 4 new hospitalizations.  Now today’s increase of 9 new hospitalizations is sudden and unusual.  Stay tuned!

ACTIVE CASES:  69 of the 517 cases are currently active – 3 fewer than yesterday.  Note that the county does not report WHERE the active cases are.  Below you will see that only 19 are currently hospitalized, which leaves 50 of these 69 active cases out in our communities somewhere, and hopefully quarantined.

HOSPITAL IMPACT: The County shows 19 of the 84 hospitalized cases are CURRENTLY hospitalized, 1 fewer than yesterday.  Yesterday, 20 cases were active out of 75 total.   (How the County can report an increase of 9 cumulative hospitalizations on the same day they report 1 fewer actively hospitalized is a puzzle to me.  Someone should ask Dr. Matyas about this….)  The County’s count of ICU beds available and ventilator supply remains at “GOOD” at 31-100%. (No information is given on our supply of test kits, PPE and staff.)

TESTING: The County reports that 11,096 residents have been tested as of today, an increase of 257 residents tested since yesterday.
We still have a long way to go:
only 2.5% of Solano County’s 447,643 residents (2019) have been tested.  NOTE: State run testing sites in Vallejo and Vacaville are open to anyone.

Solano’s steady upward curve – as of May 29

This chart shows the infection’s steady upward trajectory in Solano County.  Our “curve” continues to creep up.  Our nursing homes, long-term care facilities and jails bear watching!

Still incredibly important – everyone stay home if you don’t need to go out, wear masks when you do go out (especially in enclosed spaces), wash hands, and be safe!
