The County of San Diego releases the latest COVID-19 statistics, including number of fatalities and confirmed cases, each evening.
In Ramona, as of February 1 there are 2,117 total confirmed cases, an increase of 74 cases in a week - and up 1,629 cases since November 11. Assuming the case rate stays at a similar pace, taking 18 days to amass another 100,000 cases will be the slowest pace Pennsylvania has seen since the 24 days it took to get from 200,000 cases to 300,000 last fall.
"While Lake County has been assured by state and federal partners that it will eventually receive enough vaccine to vaccinate all eligible individuals who desire a COVID-19 vaccine, the current supply of vaccine being allocated weekly to Lake County is not enough to meet the demand".
Currently, 294 individuals are hospitalized with the virus, 82 of whom are in intensive care.
Hospitalizations rose slightly. There were 47 people hospitalized with COVID-19, up from 44 on Tuesday, and seven people hospitalized awaiting test results, up from five on Tuesday. When the hospitalization surge was on the upswing, the state was around that number on November 21, when there were 3,294 patients hospitalized and growing. Today, there are over 1,000 less patients in the hospital due to COVID-19 than there were less than two weeks ago. Some 5,097 of the shots distributed so far have been second doses.
The LCGHD said vaccines coming into the county remain low, with many vaccine providers only receiving 100- 200 doses each week.
The person who tested positive was a close contact of a known case of the variant first identified in the United Kingdom, raising concerns that it might spread through the school.
Meanwhile, 16 more people in B.C. have died of COVID-19, bringing the province's death toll to 1,234.
