Hospitalizations – a rare Solano County update

Solano County reported 18 previously undisclosed hospitalizations yesterday.  The County updates these important numbers only occasionally, and only then they must be independently discovered in the County’s demographic chart labeled “Hospitalizations by Age Group.”  That chart hasn’t been updated since May 25, when a total of 1,286 persons had been hospitalized.  Yesterday, the County added hospitalizations in the following age groups: 1 youth aged 0-17, 3 persons aged 18-49, 6 persons aged 50-64, and 8 of our elders aged 65+.  No further updates today, unchanged totals:

Age Group Hospitalizations % of Total
0-17 27 2%
18-49 326 25%
50-64 340 26%
65+ 611 47%
TOTAL 1,304 100%

Hospitalizations are also recorded on the County’s demographic chart labeled “Hospitalizations by Race / Ethnicity.”  Here are the current numbers.  Interestingly, the total doesn’t square with totals by age groups.  (My hunch is that the County has not updated this chart for a time.)

Race / Ethnicity Hospitalizations % of Total
Asians 184 15%
Black / African American 197 16%
Hispanic / Latinx 327 27%
White 405 34%
Multirace / Others 85 7%
TOTAL 1,198 99%

The one bit of good news is that Solano County reported no new deaths again today, and has not added a death since June 4.  The County total is 244 deaths since the pandemic began.
