By Roger Straw, Wednesday, June 30, 2021

Solano County reports 75 new COVID infections since Monday, adds 18 previously undisclosed hospitalizations.

People with mild COVID can have long-term health problems.  And: More than 70% of COVID-19 patients studied report having at least one “long haul” symptom that lasts for months.”  It’s not over yet!

Hospitalizations – a rare Solano County update

Solano County reported 18 previously undisclosed hospitalizations today.  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.  Today 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+.  New totals today:

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

Apologies – I just realized that these hospitalizations are also recorded on the demographic chart labeled “Hospitalizations by Race / Ethnicity.”  Having not tracked this in the past, I can’t tell you about recent increases, but 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%

Solano County reported no new deaths today.  The County total is 244 deaths since the pandemic began.
