Here are tonight’s virus-crisis updates:
KING COUNTY’S NEWEST NUMBERS: First, the cumulative totals from the Public Health daily-summary dashboard:
*16,601 people have tested positive, up 129 from yesterday’s total
*674 people have died, down 1 from yesterday’s total*
*2,028 people have been hospitalized, up 3 from yesterday’s total
*332,460 people have been tested, up 10,048 from yesterday’s total*
One week ago, the totals were 15.510/649/1,963/300,529.
COUNTY DATA NOTE: The county says “data corrections” may lead to negative “since yesterday” stats such as the one above; also, test-results data was bad last night, so the big total tonight includes a catch-up.
STATEWIDE NUMBERS: See them here.
WORLDWIDE NUMBERS: 19.8 million cases and more than 731,000 deaths – see the nation-by-nation breakdown here.
REOPENING: West Seattle’s three biggest fitness facilities open to general use Monday for the first time since their pandemic shutdowns.
SEATTLE PUBLIC SCHOOLS’ PLAN: The School Board meets 1 pm Wednesday to talk about the new school year – here’s the agenda.
