|Cases to death||1.2%|
Fresno’s positvity rate showed signs of slowing down since August 26th (previously near 13% on August 7th); dropping to 12.6% to 11.9%. This is consistent with the entirety of California; even troublesome counties like Tulare have dropped. However, Fresno is still far from being in any condition to operate “normally”; having twice the positivity rate as California (6%), and even being higher than Tulare.
(Their portal stats currently boast a 9.3% posivity rate; which means Tulare’s total testing has somehow increased by over 50% in just the past 2 weeks). Worse yet, it’s expected that our numbers will reveal a spike due to labor day. The case to deaths have increased by 0.2%; a notable Fresno detective died from COVID-19. With the fires raging all over, I think the worsened air quality will only contribute to COVID-19 deaths (since afterall, it can heavily impair breathing)
