Solano County COVID-19 Dashboard – SUMMARY:

On April 28, Solano County reported only 21 new COVID cases, a well 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 remained basically even today, rising from 330 to 336.  Our percent positivity rate remained at 5.5%.

Cases among youth and young adults increasing

Since last summer, cases among children 0-17 years of age have increased dramatically as a percentage of total cases.  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 (22 today, see image 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

>> The virus is still on the move here.  Stay safe, get vaccinated, wear a mask and social distance!  We will get through this together.
