Midweekend, we check in on the virus crisis:
NEWEST KING COUNTY NUMBERS: Here are the cumulative totals from Public Health‘s daily-summary dashboard:
*23,879 people have tested positive, 143 more than yesterday’s total
*776 people have died, unchanged from yesterday’s total
*2,433 people have been hospitalized, 4 more than yesterday’s total
*475,507 people have been tested, 3,919 more than yesterday’s total
One week ago, those totals were 22,941/764/2,395/449,170.
WEST SEATTLE TREND: Here’s our weekly check of this stat, with numbers accessible in two-week increments via the “geography over time” tab on the daily-summary dashboard, combining the totals from the West Seattle and Delridge “health reporting areas.” In the past 2 weeks, 60 positive test results were reported; 49 in the 2 weeks before that; 35 in the two weeks before that – so we are still on an uptick, as was the case when we did the same check last weekend.
STATEWIDE NUMBERS: See them here.
WORLDWIDE NUMBERS: 37.1 million people have tested positive, and more than 1,071,000 people have died; U.S. deaths have passed 214,000. Most cases: U.S., India, Brazil, Russia, Colombia. See the breakdown, nation by nation, here.
TOY DRIVE: The need is greater than ever this year because of the pandemic, so donation collection began early. The Kiwanis Club of West Seattle is at California/Alaska every Sunday, continuing tomorrow, 10 am-1:30 pm, collecting new, unwrapped toys for Toys for Tots.
