Somebody I know who runs a small business in Davis has been asking me a number of very cogent questions regarding the handling of the Coronavirus in our County.
Here is what he wrote me a couple of weeks ago:
"So Nov 23 was a bad day for Yolo County, with 108 cases reported. And Davis was not good, with 25 of those. But as usual, Woodland was by far the highest, with 53 cases. Has the county health agency just given up? With numbers like that, are they actually looking at Woodland as a
local hot spot and redirecting resources?
Are they actually making use of these numbers that tell
them where and how many cases are occurring? Or have theyjust given up on contact tracing?"
When I chatted with him a few days ago, he said, "The same questions apply, John!". And he confirmed that again this morning.
Here is an updated set of numbers he shot over to me this morning..... taken from the Yolo County Coronavirus Dashboard:
Current case numbers and percentages by town in Yolo County as of December 8, 2020:
#cases % of cases
Yolo County 5549 100%
Woodland 2247 40.5%
West Sac 1656 29.8%
Davis 769 13.9%
Unincorporated 641 11.6%
Winters 236 4.3 %
What should I tell them in response to their questions (above) ? "They are on it!". Or "Don't worry, be happy".
Or something else?
