Case Update: June 23rd

This is a Coronavirus case update. New confirmed cases continue to climb for all three regions that I monitor closely, the US, California, and San Diego County. Calculated active cases in California are now at approximately 50,000 active cases, up from 20,000 at the height of the first peak in early April. Los Angeles County continues to dominate the caseload, with 51% of total confirmed cases in LA County.

Rt Live reports that 29 of 51 listed US states and territories have an Rt of above 1.0, suggesting that the virus is spreading in those states.

Internationally, Brazil just crossed the 1 million confirmed case mark, and is #2 in total confirmed cases behind the US. Brazil’s new daily cases may have hit it’s peak, however, so new cases may finally be slowing down. Russia and India are next in total cases.

Over the past week, San Diego County Public Health has reported several small outbreaks in restaurants and businesses. As we re-open, it will continue to be important to wear masks and social distance while in public.

Don’t fear, but be smart!
