#AceHealthReport – Mar.25: In her weekly briefing to the board, Pan said that among the first group of COVID-19 cases to be analysed by county health officials, more than one-third are between 20 and 44 years old: However, Pan said most of those people haven’t developed serious symptoms and haven’t had to be hospitalised: Earlier on Tuesday county health officials said the county has now had two deaths attributed to COVID-19 and has had 135 cases so far:
Pan told the Board of Supervisors that there’s been an “exponential increase” in coronavirus cases in the Bay Area and Alameda County since she gave her first briefing to the board two weeks ago, when only three cases had been reported in the county: She said 64 percent of the county’s cases at this point have been “community-acquired,” as opposed to cases in which victims had been infected while traveling………“This is in our community now,” Pan said. “We don’t have as much testing capacity as we’d like now” but testing has ramped up in recent days, particularly at a facility at a Hayward fire station that has the capacity to test up to 350 people a day and get the results in six to nine hours…………….As the number of people tested increases the number of known coronavirus cases also will increase.
Alameda County sheriff’s Cmdr. Thomas Madigan told the board that there were no known coronavirus cases at the Santa Rita Jail in Dublin so far and said, “We’d like to keep it that way.”…………Pan said 911 emergency response calls actually have decreased in recent weeks and so far hospital and emergency room availability was stable.
The Board of Supervisors voted to authorise advance payments to county-contracted community-based organizations to help them deal with the financial impact of COVID-19, based on concerns that a decline in service demands due to the county’s shelter-in-place order could impact their cash flow and sustainability: County Administrator Susan Muranishi said the county has contracts with nearly 300 community-based organisations and the county wants to make sure that they’re able to continue helping the county provide important services for the long run.
