CORONAVIRUS: Saturday 12/5 roundup, including our weekly West Seattle trend check

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.


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.

    Anyone know why they are not listing Percentage Positives on the first data point?    It’s easier for me to absorb the percentages than raw numbers in keeping track of trends.

Sorry, comment time is over.
