Two days until The Grand Reopening – a quick look at tonight’s pandemic toplines:
NEWEST KING COUNTY NUMBERS: From the Seattle-King County Public Health daily summary:
*112,480 people have tested positive, 39 more than yesterday
*1,657 people have died, unchanged since Saturday
*6,496 people have been hospitalized, 5 more than yesterday
ONE WEEK AGO: Last Monday, the three totals we track were 111,706/1,616/6,317.
STATEWIDE NUMBERS: Check the state dashboard.
WORLDWIDE NUMBERS: 181.4 million cases, 3,930,000+ deaths – 604,000+ in the U.S. See the other stats – nation by nation – here.
VAX STATS: In King County, 78.2 percent of people 12+ have had at least one dose; 71.8 percent are fully vaccinated. In West Seattle, the most-vaccinated zip code is still 98136 – 89.2 percent of people 12+ have had at least one dose. (Maps and stats are here.)
RETIRING THE ROUNDUP: We’d been thinking about retiring our daily pandemic roundup after Reopening Day. An announcement by Public Health today cements that decision – they’re going to cut back on dashboard updates, weekdays only. We will likely launch a weekly local update, probably on Friday nights.
