CORONAVIRUS: Sunday 6/20/2021 roundup, including our weekly West Seattle trend check

Tonight’s pandemic notes, with 10 days at the most until full reopening:

NEWEST KING COUNTY NUMBERS: From the King County Daily Summary Dashboard page:

*111,646 people have tested positive, up 62 from yesterday

*1,616 people have died, unchanged from yesterday

*6,314 people have been hospitalized, up 2 from yesterday

One week ago, those three totals were 111,106/1,615/6,272.

WEST SEATTLE TRENDS: Sunday roundups feature our check of these numbers, shown in two-week increments on the “geography over time” tab of the countywide daily-summary dashboard. For WS status, we combine the totals from the West Seattle and Delridge “health reporting areas” (HRAs): For the past two weeks, 53 positive test results; 54 in the 2 weeks before that; 98 in the two weeks before that. … We also are noting two other West Seattle stats each week. The total deaths for the entire pandemic in the two HRAs comprising West Seattle: 68, which is one below last week’s total, so a recent state-database correction apparently removed one local death from the total. And a look at hospitalizations: 197 total have been attributed to people in the two peninsula HRAs since the start of the pandemic, adding one this week.

STATEWIDE NUMBERS: See them here (but again, note there was no update this weekend).

WORLDWIDE NUMBERS: 178.4 million cases and 3,864,000+ deaths, almost 602,000 of them in the U.S. – see the nation-by-nation breakdown here

SUMMER MEALS FOR STUDENTS: No need to go hungry while school’s out. Seattle Public Schools summer-meal sites get going 11 am-1 pm today – details and locations are here.

    It’s amazing how people keep undying in these “data corrections”. I wonder how this compares to our expected deaths figures. When the rules get tighter and tighter numbers become lower and lower and less and less informative. Is someone is working too hard to remove people from Covid rolls, over-riding the treating doctor’s conclusions perhaps?

Sorry, comment time is over.
