Tracking COVID-19 in Piedmont | Feb. 9

According to the most recent update from the Alameda County Office of Public Health on Feb. 9, total coronavirus cases in Piedmont as of today stood at 162, a number that is unchanged from last week, representing a welcome respite from the climbing case numbers of the past few months.

Alameda County’s standing, per a report from the LA Times:

  • “Virus transmission in Alameda County is rated as widespread by the governor’s reopening regime, which places the area in Tier 1 and keeps many nonessential businesses closed.
  • Over the past seven days, the county has reported an average of 365.9 new cases per day, a 28% decrease from two weeks ago. Over that same period, there have been 8.4 deaths per day.
  • The number of hospitalizations is decreasing. There are now 273 patients with a confirmed case, a decrease from fourteen days ago.”

Although Bay Area ICU capacity continues to improve, concerns about the spread of more transmissible virus variants are on the rise as one health official warned about another possible surge.

(Note: The county database is updated daily, but counts for a particular past date can change as records are adjusted, per a caveat on the county’s data dashboard.)
