Fresno currently has 76 cases per 100K, which is a 50% increase since my last update, and it means there are 760 new cases daily (76 per 100K is also 950% over the threshold for placing a county into purple category in the first place). The total death toll has also significantly increased, from 646 to 904 (40% more). Overall, Fresno’s positivity rate is still rising too.
|Cases leading to death||1.2%|
|Cases per 100K||76|
Within a 6-day period, we saw record daily deaths with an average of 32 deaths daily (Fresno’s daily deaths used to be a number between 0-10, before we had such dangerous levels of infections daily). The positivity rate was also 15.9%, with 4.2% of cases leading to death (in contrast to the usually static 1% of cases that lead to death).
COVID-19 Vaccination update
NOTICE: Kaiser Permanente initially scheduled those over 65 for COVID-19 innoculations, however, due to limited doses, they are being limited to those over 75, again.
Fresno has received 44,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccine. Of course, those significantly at risk, be it from certain working conditions (such as farm workers), or most especially, older people. Initially, California & Fresno’s age eligibility for vaccines was 75+, but as of just this Wednesday, this was lowered to 65+.
