ORANGE COUNTY COVID-19 DASHBOARD GLOSSARY

 

CDPH DATA MONITORING

Elevated Disease Transmission Case Rate per 100,000 population The 14-day case rate: The total number of cases diagnosed and reported over a 14-day period divided by the number of people living in the county. This number is then multiplied by 100,000. Due to reporting delay, there is a 3-day lag.
Testing Positivity Percent 7-day testing positivity is the the total number of positive polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests divided by the total number of PCR tests conducted. This number is then multiplied by 100 to get a percentage. Due to reporting delay (which may be different between positive and negative tests), there is a 7-day lag.
Limited Hospital Capacity Percent ICU Beds Currently Available Intensive Care Unit (ICU) bed availability: The total number of available ICU beds divided by the total number of staffed ICU beds. This number is then multiplied by 100 to get a percentage.
Percent Ventilators Currently Available Ventilator availability: The total number of available ventilators divided by the total number of ventilators. This number is then multiplied by 100 to get a percentage.ng delay (which may be different between positive and negative tests), there is a 7-day lag.
Increasing Hospitalization Change in 3-day average hospitalized patients Percent change in confirmed COVID-19 patients hospitalized: Calculated by comparing the average number of laboratory confirmed COVID-19 patients hospitalized over the past 3 days to the 3 days prior.

 

CONFIRMED CASES

Confirmed Cases The total number of patients with laboratory confirmation of the virus causing COVID-19
Cumulative Cases The cumulative number of patients with laboratory confirmation of the virus causing COVID-19
SNF Resident Cases The total number of Skill Nursing Facility (SNF) residents with laboratory confirmation of the virus causing COVID-19
OC Jail Inmate Cases The total number of OC Jail Inmates with laboratory confirmation of the virus causing COVID-19.
Homeless Cases The total number of persons in homeless shelters with laboratory confirmation of the virus causing COVID-19.
Daily COIVD+ Cases Received The number of laboratory confirmed cases received today. Note that it takes time for a person's specimen to be tested, the results logged and transmitted into the system.
Recovered (Estimated) An estimate of the number of recovered cases by taking the difference between the cumulative number of cases 28 days ago and current day mortality to determine the current day recovered total. Please note that these data are only an estimate and should be interpreted with caution. [Methodology: Cumulative number of cases 28 days ago – current day mortality = current day recovered]

 

DEATHS

Cumulative Deaths The total number of COVID-related deaths to Orange County residents.
SNF Resident Deaths The total number of COVID-related deaths to residents of Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNF).

Number of Deaths by Date of Death The number of COVID-related deaths presented by the decedent's date of death

 

Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) TESTING

Cumulative PCR Tests The total number of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests (diagnostic tests) that have been conducted to date.
Daily PCR Tests Received The number of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests (diagnostic tests) reported on a given day.
PCR Testing Positivity Percent The Testing Positivity Rate is the percentage of total number of reported tests that resulted in a positive test. For our testing positivity rate, we are using CDPH’s method of the total number of positive PCR tests divided by the total number of PCR tests conducted. This number is then multiplied by 100 to get a percentage.
Cumulative Number of PCR Tests by Specimen Collection Date The total number of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests (diagnostic tests) that have been conducted to date, displayed based on the date the specimen was collected.
Testing PCR Positivity Percent Trend The Testing Positivity Percent Trend is how the percentage of total number of reported tests that resulted in a positive test are changing over time.

 

SEROLOGY

Cumulative Number of Serology Tests by Specimen Collection Date The total number of serology tests (non-diagnostic tests) that have been conducted to date, displayed based on the date the specimen was collected. Note that serology tests for antibodies to the Covid-19 virus indicate a previous infection.
Cumulative Serology Positivity Percentage The cumulative serology positivity percentage is the percentage of total number of reported serology tests that resulted in a positive test divided by the total number of serology tests conducted. This number is then multiplied by 100 to get a percentage.

 

HOSPITAL/ICU

Current Hospital Patients The total number of patients hospitalized with a confirmed (laboratory confirmed) case of COVID-19 in an acute care hospitals for the most recent date on which data is available.
Current ICU Patients The number of ICU beds filled by patients known to have COVID-19 (confirmed by a laboratory test) in an acute care hospitals for the most recent date on which data is available.
Daily Hospital Patient Census Trend The trend over time of total number of patients hospitalized with a confirmed (laboratory confirmed) case of COVID-19 in an acute care hospital.
Daily ICU Patient Census Trend The trend over time in the number of ICU beds filled by patients known to have COVID-19 (confirmed by a laboratory test) in an acute care hospital.
