  Tracing reveals characteristics of those with cases
Posted by: M_T - 01-06-2021, 07:10 AM - Forum: COVID-19 - No Replies

We knew they had this info, but they aren't telling the public...

Some news organizations were able to get information of where "outbreaks" were in San Diego County. An "outbreak" is defined as where 3 or more unrelated cases reported being at the same location in the 2 weeks before getting infected.  This doesn't mean they got infected at these places, or that the places are doing anything unsafe.  But it does indicate to me something about the lifestyles of those getting infected.

I'm not going to rehash the info from the 3 part report.  Check it out yourself.

Unfortunately there is no way to know if (say) restaurant visits, health care facilities, etc. are more common in those that got infected (listed here) versus the general population.  So it is impossible to say whether people that get sick were at some kinds of places more or less often, indicating whether such places may be more likely to be involved in the spread or not.

Of interest is the letter from the County Commissioners trying to squelch the publication of the information.  I would bet that SCC commissioners are sitting on this information for SCC.

They also link to a report from Oregon that gives statewide information of cases in a variety of settings for the latest week (congregate living places, workplaces, child care, K-12 schools).  Of interest to me is the inclusion of cases at schools.  Remember, these numbers are new cases within one week.

There is a mention of similar information from Los Angeles County, but I didn't chase it down.

TheCOVIDboard is intended for sharing knowledge and information about the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Facts are welcome, but please document your facts (preferably with links to source material).
  • Opinions can be politely offered, but please avoid disparaging the opinions of others.
  • Never attack other users.  Avoid attacking any people (including public figures such as politicians).  Explain your disagreements or offer improvements to specific policies.  Derisive name calling is unwelcome.
  • Do not harass other users (by PM, email, etc.)
  • Most of us use handles to identify ourselves on this site. One advantage of this is that people with inside knowledge can feel free to disclose information about themselves or their experiences. Please remember that it is each individual's choice how much information he or she discloses. Please respect other posters' choices on anonymity.
  • Please remain close to the COVID-19 topic. Specifically, minimize discussions about politics. While important, they are polarizing, which is unwelcome here.
  • Do not post content from sites behind a paywall.  Instead, post a link to the site with a summary of the content of interest.
  • When quoting (brief) material from other sites, use the cartoon speech bubble to indicate it is a quote. Include a link to the original site.
By using this board, you agree that the administrators have the right to delete any post, thread, forum or the entire board for any reason and you agree that the administrators have the right to ban any user for some time or permanently for any reason.
