Coronavirus cases in the SDSU nearly 600


32 more positive coronavirus tests at San Diego State University were among 445 new cases and four COVID-related deaths announced by the county health department on Saturday.The additional cases brought the local pandemic total to 42,414 confirmed cases and 734 deaths. There are now 594 confirmed infections and four probable infections with SDSU, according to the university’s COVID-19 website.

According to the health department, the four deaths reported on Saturday included two women and two men who died between September 7 and September 10. All were over the age of 50 with other underlying medical conditions.

No new community epidemic has been announced.

The county’s latest update on its list of cases by episode date – a classification that roughly shows when each case started, rather than when it was first announced to the public – shows San Diego is back on the map again. point to cross the threshold that could cause the region to slide down the state’s COVID reopening hierarchy.

The California Health and Human Services Agency is expected to release its weekly calculation of case rates by county and positive test percentages that determine the level to which each region belongs on Tuesday.

The state threshold for the lowest level, which would force many businesses to stop serving customers indoors, is above 7 cases per 100,000 population on average over a seven-day period shifted by seven days in the past.

The California Department of Public Health confirmed in an email on September 9 that it will calculate its next update by averaging cases whose episode dates fell from August 30 to September 5. The latest county data shows the seven-day average currently stands at 6.9. However, more cases could appear when testing labs notify the health department of results with episode dates falling within the seven-day calculation window.

If the region shows a number greater than 7 in Tuesday’s report, nothing will change immediately. The state requires coronavirus numbers to be off limits for two consecutive weeks for a level change to occur.

The region could also see its case rate reduced, which would allow it to stay at its current level, if the number of coronavirus tests performed locally exceeds the state’s test rate measured per 100,000 population. The state will not release test-based adjustment information until Tuesday.
