Midway through December’s first weekend, here are tonight’s pandemic toplines:
NEWEST KING COUNTY NUMBERS: Here are the cumulative totals from Public Health‘s daily-summary dashboard:
*47,255 people have tested positive, 324 more than yesterday’s total
*894 people have died, unchanged from yesterday’s total
*3,370 people have been hospitalized, 23 more than yesterday’s total
*650,890 people have been tested (the county continues to say this number was frozen 11/21, but it’s continued to rise)
One week ago, those totals were 43,384/856/3,164/626,095.
WEST SEATTLE TREND: Here’s our weekly check of this stat, with numbers shown 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.” For the past two weeks, 276 positive test results; 384 in the 2 weeks before that; 207 in the two weeks before that.
STATEWIDE NUMBERS: See them here.
WORLDWIDE NUMBERS: 66.5 million people have tested positive, and more than 1,528,000 people have died; U.S. deaths have passed 281,000. Most cases: U.S., India, Brazil, Russia, France (the last two switched places this week). See the breakdown, nation by nation, here.
DONATION DRIVE TOMORROW: Look for the Kiwanis Club of West Seattle tent at California/Alaska, by the Farmers’ Market entrance, 10 am-2 pm. They’re collecting coats, hats, and gloves.
