The Intensive Care Unit numbers are increasing from the average of 100 patients to now 129. Scary!
Daily Dashboard -- positive rates are starting to trend downward again:
City by city:
Why highlight new / TL cases? Most important numbers are the net hospitalizations - which shows the truly serious cases and continues to set new record highs.
Do much blame on HCQ!!! Eat something to increase the immunity!!! Zinc and Iron containing food will help such as leafy vegetables , meat , etc. Forget vaccine lobby and HCQ !!!
Ditch the pie charts, this is easier to read.
COVID is over. What don’t you people get? We have thousands of people protesting every day and health officials are silent. When 2 weeks ago they closed the beaches on us. It was all bullshit.
What is going on with contact tracing? Are you prepared for the load of contact tracing that will be needed in the coming weeks because of opening and protests? What have you learned about the virus and the spread through the contact tracing? Not sure why the reporters didn’t ask that? Why wasn’t the deaths related to snf on the tip of your tongues when asked by the reporter considering you said snf was your focus?
Per capita growth:
Everyday I ask why is this happening in nursing homes. 6 of the 7 deaths. They need to figure out how to not let this happen the first person to get sick they should have moved them out.
Also how long have these people been sick. Is this from the beginning or are the getting sick from the employees because no one else is going in. It isn’t like they are allowed visitors.
What are the Intensive Care Unit numbers?
SNFs continuing the trend of concern. SNFs represent less than 0.4% of the OC population
46% of COVID deaths are from SNF residents.
Case fatality rate (deaths/positive tests):
General Population excluding SNFs: 1.5%
I haven't been tracking it, but the number of new cases from SNFs seems pretty high as well. Today 16.8% of the New positive cases are from SNFs. This is pretty alarming as controls are suppose to be in place now to protect them.
I would wager a significant portion of the Hospital Beds and ICUs are comprised of SNF residents.

I saw that Newsom was bringing in CoVid patients from the border towns... nice, another thing we can thank Newscum for. 🙄
Why are you ignoring valid questions? I want to know how many Mexican nationals are included in these numbers. You know, the people Newsom brought in from across the border?
You are not giving us the whole picture and for the people curled up in a ball in the corner thinking it’s the end of times, it might be helpful to offer a little perspective. Also comparing to past flu deaths which you also refuse to do.
