Previous report, Wednesday, May 13

Summary

Solano County reported 11 new positive cases today, total is now 408.  And today we have 2 new deaths, total now at 14.  Somewhat alarmingly, today the County is reporting 3 new cases among young persons 18 and under.  And the deaths among our elders continue to climb –  both of today’s new deaths were persons age 65 or older.  This makes 7 new deaths in just 6 days since Friday May 8.

BY AGE GROUP

  • 3 new cases of young persons under 19 years of age, total of 11 cases, up from 2.0% to 2.7% of the 408 confirmed cases.
  • 6 of today’s 11 new cases were persons 19-64 years of age, total of 287 cases, 70% of the total.   No new deaths, total of 2.  Note that only 36 of the 287 cases in this age group (12.5%) were hospitalized at one time.  (It is unclear whether the 2 deaths were ever hospitalized.)
  • 2 of today’s 11 new cases were persons 65 or older, total of 110 cases, 27% of the total.  2 new deaths, total of 12.  Note that 26 of the 110 cases in this age group (23.6%) were hospitalized at one time, nearly double the percentage in the mid-age group(It is unclear whether the 12 deaths in this age group were ever hospitalized.)

HOSPITALIZATIONS: 62 of Solano’s 408 cases resulted in hospitalizations, 1 more than yesterday.  Good news – a small increase.

ACTIVE CASES:  52 of the 408 cases are active, 10 more than yesterday.   Note that the county does not report WHERE the active cases are.  Below you will see that only 15 are currently hospitalized, which leaves 37 of these 52 active cases out in our communities somewhere, and hopefully quarantined.

The County’s “Hospital Impact” graph shows 15 of the 62 hospitalized cases are CURRENTLY hospitalized, same as yesterday.  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.)

CITY DATA

  • Vallejo added 9 of today’s 11 new cases, total of  247 238.
  • Fairfield remains at 67 cases.
  • Vacaville remains at 38.
  • Suisun City remains at 20 cases.
  • Benicia added 2 of today’s 11 new cases, total of 20.
  • Dixon, Rio Vista and “Unincorporated” are still not assigned numerical data: today all remain at <10 (less than 10).  Note that the numbers for other cities add up to 392, leaving 16 cases located somewhere among the locations in this “<10” category (same number as last reported).  Residents and city officials have pressured County officials for city case counts.  Today’s data is welcome, but still incomplete.

TESTING

The County reports that 6,008 residents have been tested as of today.  This is an increase of only 74 residents tested since yesterday’s total of 5,934.  This comes a week after the County announced the opening of new State run testing sites in Vacaville and Vallejo, open to anyoneWhen will we see our testing numbers surge?

  • 2 of today’s 9 new cases were persons 19-64 years of age, total of 281 cases, 71% of the total.   No new deaths, total of 2.  Note that only 35 of the 281 cases in this age group (12.5%) were hospitalized at one time.  (It is unclear whether the 2 deaths were ever hospitalized.)

The County’s “Hospital Impact” graph shows 15 of the 61 hospitalized cases are CURRENTLY hospitalized, 2 more than yesterday.  (Don’t ask me how TOTAL hospitalizations can remain at 61 while CURRENTLY hospitalized increases by 2.  There must be an error or a correction of a previous error….)  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.)
