Hospitalizations on Monday, July 12:

Solano County reported an intake/discharge total of 19 CURRENTLY hospitalized persons with COVID today, 3 more than Friday.  The County updates the total of CURRENTLY hospitalized cases with every report, but never reports on the cumulative total of hospitalized COVID patients over the course of the pandemic.  That total must be independently discovered in the County’s occasional update of the demographic chart labeled “Hospitalizations by Age Group.”  That chart was updated today, showing 2 new hospitalizations, one person age 18-49 and another age 50-64.  A new total of 1,306 persons have been hospitalized since the beginning of the outbreak, in the following age groups:

Hospitalizations are also recorded on the County’s demographic chart labeled “Hospitalizations by Race / Ethnicity.”  The chart was updated today, adding 2 Black/African American persons.  Here are the current numbers.  Interestingly, the total doesn’t square with totals by age groups.
