Case Update, February 24th, 2021

This is a brief case update. Case numbers continue to drop in the US, California, and San Diego County. There was a small outbreak in Iowa this week. Numbers are low enough generally right now that we can see outbreaks in particular places!

For those of you in the testing field, reported SARS-2 tests dropped below 1 million tests yesterday.

Graph is by me, from data collected from Johns Hopkins University COVID site. This graph shows reported tests. Laboratories are currently required to report both to the ordering physicians and also report positives (without identifying information) to the CDC as well as county and state public health. Some labs have been late reporting to public health, which is why you see some days which have either a very high or very low number of tests.

Don’t fear, but be smart,
