Solano County COVID-19 Dashboard – SUMMARY:

On April 27, Solano County reported 32 new COVID cases, a bit below our average of 39 new cases per day during the first two weeks of April Reports are that Solano will not be joining all other Bay Area counties in the State’s orange tier anytime soon.  Solano’s Active cases rose dramatically today from 214 to 330.  Our percent positivity rate rose slightly from 5.4% to 5.5%.

Cases among youth and young adults increasing

Of the 32 new cases today, 11 of them, over a third, were among children 0-17 years of age. today.  Another 15, almost half of the total, were among those aged 18-49.  The County reports a continued low in numbers among those aged 50-64 (only 4 new cases today) and those aged 65+ (only 2 new cases today)!  This chart shows the changes among age groups over the past 11 months.

Hospitalizations – very little information…

The Solano County COVID dashboard Summary tab only shows total hospitalizations for the current day (20 today, see at top of page).  This number represents the total hospitalized after yesterday’s admissions and discharges.  Little can be learned from this about the accumulated total of hospitalizations.  On the Demographics tab of the County dashboard, the County “occasionally” updates the accumulated total of hospitalizations by age groups.  These numbers have not been updated since early April, so it isn’t possible to determine whether there has been an increasing number of hospitalizations among our children and young adults.  I have asked Public Health Officer Dr. Bela Matyas for an update on these numbers.  Meanwhile, age group hospitalization totals on the dashboard are dated, but interesting:

Solano County Total COVID Hospitalizations by AGE GROUPS as of Early April
Age 0-17
Age 18-49
Age 50-64
Age 65+
    26     324     329     591
