CORONAVIRUS: Friday 7/3 roundup

18 weeks ago tonight, King County’s first coronavirus case was announced. Most nights since then, we’ve updated virus-crisis local news in our nightly roundup:

NEWEST KING COUNTY NUMBERS: From the Public Health daily summary:

*10,719 people have tested positive, 123 more than yesterday

*590 people have died, 1 more than yesterday

*1,610 people have been hospitalized, 4 more than yesterday

*179,644 people have been tested, 3,651 more than yesterday

One week ago, those totals were 9,695/586/1,564/155,859.


WORLDWIDE NUMBERS: 11 million cases, 524,000+ deaths – see the nation-by-nation numbers here.

CAN YOU GIVE BLOOD? If so, your help is urgently needed (note – looks like most of tomorrow’s slots are taken, but other days are available).

PICKUP MARKET: If you don’t feel comfortable shopping multiple booths at the West Seattle Farmers’ Market, the new online-ordering system for one pickup point is up and running. Midnight tonight is the deadline for pickups this Sunday.

QUESTIONS FOR YOU: The COVID-19-forced changes in higher education have South Seattle College (WSB sponsor) asking questions in a community survey.

    Yikes, I went back to one month ago and found 42 cases added on the 6/3 report vs. 123 for today’s report. One week ago was 83. Not a great trend!  Stay safe and wear your mask everyone!

    Wow, up the hill we go. Dr. Fauci had a really good interview with Jimmy Dore about this on the Youtubes.

    Sadly, another 254 died yesterday with Corona.  However, that’s half of same day last weeks number.  Despite CNNs 24/7 fear mongering the trend downward continues.FYI, 7,500 people died of something other than Corona yesterday.

      Stupid question, I know!!!  But if you hate CNN so much, why do you watch?  (and, of course, if you don’t watch them, how on earth do you know what they are doing?)
      In any case, you’re weird!  I’ve seen you on here, and you always do the same thing!  You use words like ‘sad’ about deaths, BUT then you turn right around and diminish the significance of those deaths!  That’s so weird!I wonder what’s wrong with you!

Sorry, comment time is over.
