Update #6 – April 3, 2020

COVID19 Tracking Report – April 3, 2020

Comments on today’s report, April 3, 2020.


  1. The new chart, Hospitalization by Age Group, shows why COVID19 is not just a problem for old people. Yes, if you’re under 60, the hospitalization rate is only 12.6%, but that’s still 93 people out of the 739 cases. This chart also shows why seniors need to be especially careful, since their hospitalization rate is 39.3%
  2. A bit of good news: Encinitas continues to have a better doubling rate than the county and the nation. But the doubling rate got worse for Carlsbad and the county.
  3. U.S. new cases per day per 100K people is on a steady upward trend, almost double what it was 5 days ago. This reflects outbreaks in several states outside New York, most notably New Jersey, Michigan, Massachusetts, Louisiana and Florida.
  4. The backlog of pending cases in California continues to be almost 60,000.


  1. Added a new chart, Hospitalization Rate by Age Group. This is for San Diego County only, and is based on county data from April 3, 2020.
