CORONAVIRUS: Saturday 10/10 roundup

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.


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.

FOOD-AND-MORE DRIVE: 10 am-3 pm tomorrow outside Alki UCC (6115 SW Hinds) – see last night’s roundup for the full list of what they’re accepting.

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.

    Does anybody know if the positive numbers are all “new” people vs someone “double checking” by getting a 2nd test??

      The dashboard to which we link each night has separate categories for total number of people tested and total number of tests. We cite the former.

    I notice where QFC in the Junction has removed its “one way aisle” markers on the floor.  While I appreciate the intent, they really were “hard” to strictly comply with, particularly when there was no one else around and you only wanted something 15-20 feet from the wrong end.

Sorry, comment time is over.
