For the June 22, 2022 cases MTD is 19,966 in comparison to June 2021, which was PRE-DELTA AND PRE-OMICRON, MTD was 607 which means we are 32.89 times of the June 2021 cases when we had a supposedly safe level. Our current daily average is 951 and In June 2021, we had 28 cases per day, we are 33.66 times that of that month. For May 2022 the average was 885 are at 1.07 times the number

For the month of June MTD we have tested 209,894 and in June 2021 of the same sample MTD we tested 176,693 which means our sample size is 119% of June 2021. But yet we have INCREASED POSITIVITY. The positivity rate is 10.59% but the June 2021 MTD Average was .36% meaning we are about 29.04 TIMES higher than June 2021. In May 2022 we had 6.92% and we are 1.53 times that today

We are currently reporting only 67 ICU beds available (64 adult and 3 child) which is only 11.47% available beds in the county. Our current daily hospitalization are 178 with 14 suspected cases. Our averages regarding hospitalizations though we are at a 7 day average of 188 positive cases and 19 suspected cased at total of 207. We are ranked 4th in the state. And we are back to the level of hospitalizations of 90 that we were in December 2021, but in July 2021 we were at 32 patients, and in May 2020 we were at 51 patients.

VERY IMPORTANT NOTE IN THE LAST WEEK WE HAVE ONLY TESTED 47,470 TIMES YET HAVE HAD ONLY 5,296. THAT RESULTS IN A POSITIVITY OF 12%. THE LAST 4 DAYS WE HAVE TESTED LESS THAN 18,000 OR 8.3 OF THE MONTH, WHICH MEANS WE HAVE A SERIOUS UNDERCOUNTING PROBLEM. 4 OUT OF 21 SHOULD RESULT IN 19% OF THE MONTH AND UNDERCOUNT OF 57% FOR THAT PERIOD.

That does mean we are not in very good shape, are we?

THIS MEANS YOU NEED TO ADD ANOTHER 43% OF THAT PERIOD TO GET A REAL COUNT WHICH WOULD COME TO 7,800

That does mean we are not in very good shape, are we?

The Current Viral Scale for Santa Clara County is 79.87. In comparison to March which was 21.20 which we are 3.82 times March at this time. My Monthly average is 1,041. in March it was 170 We are 6.12 times of March 2022 In June 2021 it was 97 which means we are 10.73 times what we were last summer. In May 2022 we were at an average of 921 which means we are 1.13 times May 2022.

My model predicts 1550 cases a day whether or not they are reported

WE ARE REPLAYING OMICRON FROM DEC 2021
