Last report (Thursday, April 9):


Solano County reported 6 NEW POSITIVE CASES today – total is now 121.  No new deaths in Solano County – total of 2.

As of today:

    • 1 positive case was a young person under 19 years of age
    • 93 of the cases, 77%, were individuals between the ages of 19 and 64 (including 1 death).   All of today’s 6 new cases are in this age group.
    • 27 of the cases, 22%, were 65 or older (including 1 death)

ACTIVE CASES:  Only 33 of the 115 are active cases (6 fewer than yesterday).

HOSPITALIZATIONS: 34 of the cases have resulted in hospitalizations (2 more than yesterday).

CITY DATA: Vallejo added 3 new cases, total of 44; Fairfield added 2 cases, total of 33; and Vacaville added 1 new case, total of 21.  Smaller cities are still not assigned numerical data: all show <10 (less than 10).  NOTE that the 3 major cities account for all 6 of today’s new cases,so none of today’s new cases have come from one of our four smaller cities or unincorporated areasResidents 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, “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.
