Tonight’s pandemic news:
NEWEST KING COUNTY NUMBERS: From the King County Daily Summary Dashboard page, the cumulative totals:
*96,341 people have tested positive, 463 more than yesterday’s total
*1,503 people have died, unchanged from yesterday’s total
*5,692 people have been hospitalized, 28 more than yesterday’s total

One week ago, those totals were 93,854/1,493/5,573/1,008,756.
WEST SEATTLE TRENDS: Time for our weekly check. These numbers are shown in two-week increments via the “geography over time” tab on the countywide daily-summary dashboard; to determine WS status, we combine the totals from the West Seattle and Delridge “health reporting areas” (HRAs): For the past two weeks, 180 positive test results; 129 in the 2 weeks before that; 99 in the two weeks before that. … We also are noting WS death totals each week. The total deaths for the entire pandemic in the two HRAs comprising West Seattle: 65, unchanged again in this past week.
STATEWIDE NUMBERS: See them here.
WORLDWIDE NUMBERS: 146.8 million cases and 3,106,000+ deaths, 572,000+ of them in the U.S. – see the nation-by-nation breakdown here
SCHOOL CASES: 19 in local Seattle Public Schools so far this year, and one just reported.
