In addition, the government of Gavin News reported a “stable” positive test score of 7.5%.
“Your actions can literally save lives,” the governor tweeted. “Be smart. Do your part. GET OUT THE MASK.”
July 30, 12:15 p.m. The city of San Francisco is conducting a test campaign targeted at Latin Americans, which, according to the press release, will “focus on cultural exchange of safety messages to raise awareness of health orders and regulations, as well as programs that support the community with products nutrition, housing, finance and mental health services.
One of these programs, the Right to Compensation Foundation, would provide for a two-week salary replacement of up to $ 1,285 for up to 1,500 San Francisco residents who rate COVID-19 positively. Another program offers a smaller one-time payment for food and other support services.
“This pandemic has had a strong impact on our Latin American community, and we have worked closely with our community partners to make sure that resources and testing are available to those who need it most,” said Mayor Brad. “This new campaign will help us continue to spread the word in the community about what everyone can do to keep themselves and their families safe, healthy and supportive.”
Members of the Latino community in San Francisco make up about half of all coronavirus cases in San Francisco, despite the fact that only 15% of the city’s population.
July 30, 11:10 a.m. Dr Grant Colfax told a news conference Thursday that the city was exploring ways to apply camouflage policies and other precautions in the city, but declined to promise to impose a fine, as did other Bay counties.
“We are studying how we can strengthen law enforcement, especially in situations where the requirements, which are very clear and we have repeatedly emphasized, are not being met,” he said. “This will apply mostly in terms of business continuity and other situations where people gather. We focus on working with community stakeholders. [encourage] voluntary compliance, but they also consider the need for enforcement, especially in the face of overstrain. “
July 30, 10:50 a.m. At a virtual press conference on Thursday, San Francisco Director of Health Dr. Grant Colfax and Head Kettering Stephanie announced a new hospital for low-severity patients recovering from non-residential winds.
The new city-funded site on Gorgas Avenue 1163 and 1167 in the Presidio will serve to open hospital beds for COVID-19 admission patients. The facility will initially open 20 patients, but it will have 93 patients.
“Demand for ambulances and intensive care units is growing at a rate of 15% every week during July,” said Stephanie. “It’s a big concern.”
Colfax also noted an increase in COVID hospitalizations, adding that 94 patients were hospitalized during the April peak; that number dropped to 26 six weeks ago. However, today San Francisco recorded a new peak in hospitalizations with 107 patients. A quarter of those in intensive care.
“In just 10 days this month, we have moved between 5,000 and 6,000 COVID-19 cases,” Colfax continued. “Let me understand: we are experiencing a big surge in COVID-19. The virus is moving fast, and more and more people are getting very sick. “
He estimates that by mid-October, the city will see “more than 750 San Francisco patients in hospital,” and 600 deaths have been reported.
July 30, 9:30 p.m. The Santa Clara County Department of Health has confirmed that it was investigating a coronavirus outbreak among several employees at a South Bay Bone store.
NBC Bay Area reports that up to nine employees at the store have tested positive for the virus and are taking precautions.
Costco was not immediately available for comment.
July 30, 8:50 p.m. San Mateo County was added to the state observation list on Wednesday, and now all nine Bay District counties are on the list managed by the California Department of Health.
The number of cases of the district for 14 days averaged 110.4 positive cases per 100,000 inhabitants. The threshold of the state to be included in the monitoring list is 100.
Once they are on the list for three days, counties are required to terminate certain industries if operations cannot be conducted outdoors and with curb picking.
The three-day clock began in San Mateo County on Wednesday, and county officials warned that additional restrictions could take effect on Saturday, August 1. The following enterprises should be prepared for closing or changing the company’s work: gyms and fitness centers; places of worship and cultural ceremonies such as weddings and funerals; offices for non-critical infrastructure sectors; personal care services such as nail salons and body hair removal; hairdressers and hairdressers; and shopping malls. Stores that offer tattoos, piercings and electrolysis cannot be operated outdoors and must be closed.
July 30, 7:30 p.m. California broke the record for the highest number of COVID-19-related deaths in a single day this week.
The Department of Public Health reported 197 deaths on Tuesday. This tragic number comes after the state saw a surge in cases and hospitalizations in July.
UC Berkeley infectious disease professor John Swartzberg said the deaths we are now witnessing are from cases that were discovered in early July.
“Mortality will be almost a month behind the number of new cases,” Swartzberg said. “When we look at death, which continues to rise, it’s less than a barometer of how we do it today.”
Since the beginning of the pandemic in California, there have been 8,715 deaths from COVID-19.
As mortality increases, the growth rate of new cases slows slightly. The average daily number of new cases was 8,818 per day as of Tuesday, according to the CDPH. One week ago, the daily average was 9,420. There are currently 475,305 confirmed cases in California.
Swartzberg said the proposal to reduce new cases was encouraging, but he hesitated, calling it a trend, and said the slowdown should continue for another week or two before we know if it’s just a failure.
The state has created a watch list for counties that need additional monitoring due to increased virus transmission. The list now includes 37 of the 58 counties, which is about 93% of the state’s population.
In the Gulf area, all nine counties are now on the watch list. After being removed from the list for weeks, San Mateo County was added on Wednesday.
