Update from Public Health – Seattle & King County

Public Health has updated the data dashboard. The daily summary shows that there were 8,507 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in King County as of 11:59 on June 7, 42 more than the previous day. There have been 567 confirmed deaths in King County due to COVID-19, 6.7% of all confirmed cases.

The numbers that Public Health reports each day include delayed results from previous days.

Observations

The first graph above shows new cases (blue bars) and the 7-day average (red line). Of the 42 new cases reported today, 32 were confirmed yesterday and the remaining 10 were confirmed in previous days. The 7-day average of new cases per day peaked at 194 on April 1. The average for the last 7 days is now 39 new cases per day, down from 40 one week ago. The 7-day average has declined 1% in the last week and 4% in the last two weeks.

The key indicators that the State and County are using to make decisions about reopening include a measure of the total number of cases reported in the previous 14 days per 100K residents. The target for this metric is less than 25. The second and third graphs below show this metric. The second graph goes back to March 12, the fourteenth day of reported cases. The third graph provided a more detailed view of results since May 22. During the 14-day period May 25 – June 7, 25 cases were reported per 100K residents.

I do not know why the key indicators published by Public Health do not include results after May 29.
