UPDATE: The Report for April 8 will INCLUDE the City of San Diego, and the city will be included in every report after that.
- There was a somewhat larger increase in deaths in SD County – 17. But, as the county has made clear, there is typically a lag time between the actual time of death and when it is reported. The mortality rates for CA, SD County, and the US are all very close to each other – slightly over 2%. The death rate for world cases is running just under 5%. This may be affected by inadequate testing in many countries.
- The doubling rate for Encinitas and Carlsbad is over 15 days. For the county, it’s running around 12 days. This is a much better situation than for the US as a whole, where the rate is just over a week.
- As predicted, deaths in the US were high for one day – more than 3,000. Almost 13,000 people in the US have died so far.
- Testing in CA continues to improve. Today it was a 332 per 100,000 people – a better than 400% increase in the last 5 days. The US rate is double that – 622 – largely driven by New York at almost 1,800 cases per 100,000 people.
About these reports. I post these every day for my community where I live – Encinitas and Carlsbad. To make the report readable and my time manageable, I limit the number of localities I present on the report. The city of San Diego is not on the report – I know that. It’s not because I think Encinitas and Carlsbad are “where it’s at”; it’s because I live there.
I started posting these on Reddit because they do have information about the county, state, and nation that I thought people might like to see. If there is someone who would like to post a similar daily report that centers on the city of San Diego, that would be great. If you want to use my spreadsheet as a starting point, I’m happy to share it. Just DM me.
If you don’t want to see these on Reddit, just downvote. If I find there’s a negative score overall, I’ll stop posting; it’s that simple. I’m not here to antagonize anyone.
