Update from Public Health – Seattle & King County

Общественное здравоохранение обновило панель данных.  The daily summary shows that there were 25,969 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in King County as of 11:59 on October 22, 229 more than the previous day.  There have been 789 confirmed deaths in King County due to COVID-19, 3.0% of all confirmed cases.

Цифры, которые сообщает Public Health каждый день, включают задержанные результаты предыдущих дней.


The first graph below shows new cases (blue bars) and the 7-day average (red line).  Of the 229 cases reported yesterday, 178 new cases were confirmed yesterday and 51 were attributed to previous days.  The 7-day average of new cases per day peaked at 197 on April 1 and then again at 194 on July 25.  The average for the last 7 days is now 160 new cases per day, up from 139 a week ago.  The 7-day average has increased 15% in the last week and 9% in the last two weeks.

The key indicators that the State and County are using to make decisions about reopening include a measure of the total number of cases reported in the previous 14 days per 100K residents.  The target for this metric is less than 25.  The second and third graphs below show this metric.  The second graph goes back to March 12, the first day on which the metric could be reported.  The third graph provides a more detailed view of results in the last several weeks. 94.1 cases were reported per 100K residents during the 14-day period October 9 – 22.

As of today, October 23, five of the eight key indicators are not meeting the targets established by the Washington State Department of Health.  The key indicators not meeting targets are:

  • Total number of cases for the last 14 days per 100,000 residents.
  • Effective reproductive (Re) number calculated by the Institute for Disease Modeling and Microsoft AI for Health team.
  • Rate of hospitalization per 100,000 residents in the past 14 days compared to the prior 14 days.
  • Rate of death per 100,000 residents in past 14 days compared to the prior 14 days.
  • Number of people tested for each positive result over the last 7 days.

Thank you for being curious.
