27 New Cases Reported Today

covid-19 coronavirusPress release from Six Rivers National Forest:

Twenty-seven new cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed in Humboldt County today. One previously reported case was removed because it was determined to be from another jurisdiction. The total number of county residents who have tested positive for the virus is now 4,824.

Two new hospitalizations were also reported, including one person in their 70s and one in their 80s.

Humboldt County Public Health and other approved local vaccinators have administered a total of 135,530 doses of COVID-19 vaccine. Vaccination data on the Humboldt County Data Dashboard has been updated with the latest information from the California Immunization Registry. Some highlights include:

  • 49.3% of the county’s total population, which is estimated at 135,940 residents, is fully vaccinated. 56.4% of the eligible population age 12 and older is fully vaccinated.
  • 55.1% of the county’s total population and 63% of the eligible population has received at least one dose of vaccine, meaning they have some protection against the virus.
  • Residents in the 65 to 74 age group have the highest vaccination rate, with 91% receiving at least one dose and 83.1% being fully vaccinated.

Partially vaccinated and unvaccinated residents are urged to get fully vaccinated as soon as possible to protect themselves, as well as children and medically vulnerable members of the community who cannot get vaccinated.

Residents with questions or concerns about vaccines are encouraged to speak with their primary care provider or a Public Health nurse, who can be reached by calling the Joint Information Center at 707-441-5000.

    • McCarthy was on T.V. this morning praising Trump for his “light speed” program that brought us vaccines faster than Fauci said was possible. And how Trump’s fast action had saved lives. Now we are being told by the nut ball right that the vaccines are not only ineffective but quite possibly dangerous and we are nothing more than lab rats for big pharma while they hustle us with unapproved vaccines. Anyone else see the inconsistencies in this mixture of nonsense?

  • What happened to the article about how data is driving the covid response?

  • Literally thousands of not millions of people gathering and doing things all over the country… If the virus was so deadly and the unvaccinated were such a problem millions would be dying… Such a brainwashing hoax. The only few people I know who have gotten covid recently have gotten the jab

  • Did they ramp up the cycles of the PCR test to get the desired results?

    • Who’s they ? The government.

    • Counting by excess deaths, PCR tests don’t matter. The power of counting by excess deaths is that it provides another independent method to count covid deaths that does not depend on a PCR test. The result is that over the pandemic it is very likely that covid deaths have been undercounted, not just in the US but around the world.

      • Or over counted… What narrative you wanna push

        • It’s the narrative of the data not the person. There were over 900 000 excess deaths after counting excesses due to other causes.

          It’s also funny that people want to say that the mortality rate of COVID is lower but at the same time say that we are over counting covid cases through PCR tests. These two things contradict each other. If PCR tests are over estimating covid cases then the mortality rate must also be higher.

  • Cmon it’s silly to question any of the data on covid. Any critical thinkers would know that. Haven’t we learned from history?

  • Your history.

    Your addresses.

    Your arm.

    Your body.

    Your life.

    Your leaders.

    You belong.

  • The math doesn’t seem to add up.

    “Humboldt County Public Health and other approved local vaccinators have administered a total of 135,530 doses of COVID-19 vaccine.”

    “135,940 residents, is fully vaccinated.”, most of those required 2 doses, so lets say 250,000 doses and then “55.1% of the county’s total population has received at least one dose of vaccine” so based on the prior math that is around another 145,000.

    250,000 + 145,000 – 136,000 = 259,000 doses that were not administered in this county? That is just goofy!

    • The counts overlap, Chuck U.

      I saw that, too. This is how it works,

      1 dose of J&J is considered fully vaxxed after the waiting period.
      Those with two shots, after the waiting period are also fully vaxxed.

      49.3% of total population, which is the same number as: 56.4% of eligible, (12 and over), fully vaxxed.

      Fully vaxxed, and those still in the waiting period, and those with only one dose of a two dose regimen, are all included in the “at least one dose” category.

      55.1% of total population, which is the same number as: 63% of the eligible (12 and over), with at least one dose. (1 or 2).

      So 5.8% of the total population is in the process,

      Which is the same number as: 6.6% of the eligible (12 and over) population being in the process.

      If that hopefully makes more sense.

      • Doh! Still, take out that 145,000, that is still almost half of doses that would have had to be done outside the county…

        • I see what happened, you took your quote out of context.

          It’s a misquote.

          The count should also have said are instead of is.

  • “Israelis who were vaccinated were 6.72 times more likely to get infected after the shot than after natural infection, with over 3,000 of the 5,193,499, or 0.0578%, of Israelis who were vaccinated getting infected in the latest wave.

    With a total of 835,792 Israelis known to have recovered from the virus, the 72 instances of reinfection amount to 0.0086% of people who were already infected with COVID.

    By contrast, Israelis who were vaccinated were 6.72 times more likely to get infected after the shot than after natural infection, with over 3,000 of the 5,193,499, or 0.0578%, of Israelis who were vaccinated getting infected in the latest wave.

    According to a report by Channel 13, the disparity has confounded – and divided – Health Ministry experts, with some saying the data proves the higher level of immunity provided by natural infection versus vaccination, while others remained unconvinced.”

    https://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/309762

    • Could anyone really think that getting infected with all the possible complications is better because of being less likely to get it again? Really? That makes zero sense.

      • If they already covid and they don’t want the side effects of the vaxx such as myocarditis, etc.

        • Not that that was what the article said. It simply said that infection provide a better immunity than vaccination. So having survived naturally acquired disease, maybe recovered from long term damage (or not because a third of those infected, even with mild symptoms, are suffering them more than six months out) , so far they are not as likely to get sick again.

          But first they have to survive the much higher rates damage the infection itself causes of the things you fear in the vaccine. SARS-COV-2 itself causes many, many more cases of myocarditis along with blood clots than the vaccine. Many, many, many many more time the deaths. In almost every case, the side effects of vaccination are just a much less than the same effects of the disease itself and I expect that people who reacted badly to the vaccine are the same people who would have fared poorly with the infection.

          The reality is maybe those who have been infected and recovered may not need vaccination. If they know for sure, which is unlikely, they very well might skip vaccination safely. Otherwise, since the vaccination reduces the chance of hospitalizations and death from infection, then breakthrough infections are made less damaging than infections encountered by a person without previous infection.

          The idiocy comes from thinking that taking more risk of more damage from infection is better because you will have less risk in the future. That needs ignoring that the infection does damage even kills. Only anti vaxxers with their outsized paranoia of government and conspiracies could believe that.

          • All hypothetical with no evidence either way, and totally discounts that each individual reacts differently to Covid.
            Also, if Covid is a gain of function virus, it may target specific people more harshly, jabbed or not.

      • Exactly why I’m one hundred percent ok after 16 months of no adverse health effects.

  • So 6.72 times more breakthrough than reinfection.

    3/20th the chance of reinfection as the chance of breakthrough infection.

    Compared to reinfection, vaccination is allowing more cases, infecting potentially 6.72 times more of the vaccinated and unvaccinated population.

    Doesn’t give an unvaccinated infection rate factor, that would be interesting to compare to the 6.72 breakthrough factor, and to reinfection.

      • Thank you, AA.

        Now how do we find out what that unvaccinated infection factor is?

        And whether it is going up or down?

        With so many vaccinated in Israel, that number might be lower than one might expect.

        It would be a number worth looking at when considering to take the jabs or not.

    • Nonsense. Insanity in fact. Everyone who has been infected counts as infected plus the few who get infected again. Eventually, if vaccination doesn’t prevent infection, everyone who is vaccinated will equally get infected sooner or later and have the exact same immunity as those without vaccination. Only many less of them will have died in the process.

      • Boosters are also due. Vaccine efficacy long term is still up for debate obviously the drug companies would not admit or try to avoid admiting any evidence that proves this….

  • Hurry up and get vaccinated, everyone gathered together 18 days ago on the 4th, more ridiculousness, kind of reminds me of red cross finding covid in November of 2019, then everyone bought up all the toilet paper in April of 2020, just more ridiculousness. The flu will ALWAYS run its course and our elders have always paid the highest price. Makes you wonder how many people that had the flu in past years visited rest hones while they were contagious, nobody cared then but they are screaming now ,ridiculous

    • 1 death out of 100 is kinda different than 1 death in a 1000.

      But boy, we love seeing you panic about how lame this is, keep it up and don’t be bothered by details.

      • thatguyinarcata

        Covid infection results in about 3 deaths in 1000. Symptomatic flu infection in a normal year results in about 1 death in 1000. Covid is more virulent than a typical flu, but looking at data from Nordic countries 2020 was less deadly than 2010 whether they took a strict approach, like Denmark, or a lax approach, like Sweden.

        Both nations experienced higher population wide mortality in 2010 than 2020

        • Where does 3 COVID deaths in 1000 cases come from? I have seen this before and it makes no sense.

          If you use the data from worldometer you get a US case mortality of 1.78 deaths per 100 cases. Even if you assume cases are undercounted by a factor of 2 you are still a long ways off of 3 per 1000. This assumption would also contradict those saying that PCR tests over count cases.

          • thatguyinarcata

            Case fatality rate is only a useful statistic for assessing the level of testing penetration into a population.

            If you search for “cdc pandemic planning scenarios” you can find the cdc page that lays out their view of the threats posed by covid. They list a range of possible values for “infection fatality ratio” and their best estimate has been hanging around 0.3% since at least last September.

            They did move to only listing IFR by age group in the spring, but when I did some maths on those numbers they still centered around 0.3%. The WHO also published a paper estimating the infection fatality ratio at 0.27%

        • Are you suggesting that people running the gauntlet of flu and covid is better than some measure of lockdown? Only, having already succumbed to the three time worse covid, there are less people to have to succumb shorter flu gaunlet so I can’t see the point.

          Could you clarify what you mean to say? Are you saying that more people died of flu by the end of flu season in 2010 than of Covid-19 in 2020 and 2021? Or whether there was no difference in covid deaths between between countries that were in strict lockdown or less strict lockdown because there was some measure of lockdown in both Sweden and Denmark? Because what I think you are saying is that neither country had lockdowns for flu in 2009-2010 and the death rate was more in both countries than that of Covid-19 whether they locked down or not. But that makes no sense if the issue is whether lockdowns do good or not.

          Anyway a link to the source of information would be useful.

          • thatguyinarcata

            The source is from both countries national statistics websites. Swedens is actually very easy to use. Denmark was less so.

            The point is that this narrative that covid is some sort of killer the likes of which we haven’t seen in a century is pure bs. All cause mortality was higher in 2010 than in 2020 for all countries that I’ve looked at. When you look at excess mortality data, all the reports I’ve seen that explain their data are using the baseline as average from 2015-2019, which is obviously influencing their results.

            And Sweden notoriously had the most limited public health restrictions in Europe. Denmark had some of the most strict. Their demographics are very similar. The lack of a major difference in population scale health outcomes indicate that strict lockdown measures were not a very effective public health strategy

            • If you break down the data for Sweden further you can see that prior to the pandemic Sweden was experiencing an abnormal year in terms of total deaths. All cause mortality was lower than normal prior to the pandemic. Once the pandemic took hold the trend reversed.

              see
              https://www.news-medical.net/news/20201116/Study-compares-deaths-in-Sweden-and-Norway-before-and-after-COVID-pandemic.aspx

              You can clearly see the impact of the pandemic on Swedish mortality.

              • thatguyinarcata

                You can if that’s your desired effect. If you zoom out you could see that 18 and 19 were abnormally low mortality years ad 2020 was simply a return toward the mean. The stats are the stats. 2020 was not a historically deadly year, even for a country that took very limited precautions

              • thatguyinarcata

                I looked at your link, and as I pointed out in my reply to auntie o, they used 2015-2019 as their baseline for normal mortality. But 15-19 were exceptionally low mortality years. This has the impact of exaggerating the level of death caused by covid.

                Is covid a virulent infection? Yes. Worse than a typical cold or flu? Yes. Did it cause global death on a scale humanity hasn’t seen in a century? No. We witnessed this level of mortality just 7 years ago but it was not leading news.

                Why not?

                • But 2020 up until the start of the pandemic was lower than the baseline of 2015-2019 so how does that cause 2020 deaths to be exaggerated. Additionally, the deviation from the mean starting in march is unmistakable.

            I’m not sure this will take you to the finished chart or just the page to select your variables. Cliff notes for people, every year from 2000-2012 saw higher all cause mortality rates in Sweden then last year did.

      • How about the detail that I don’t know anyone with adverse effects. Besides a friend who’s 95 year grandma died.

    • 🕯🌳What’s a rest hones??🖖🖖

  • My theory is people with past corona virus (many common cold virii are coronavirii) infections (i.e. immune system experience) have fewer symptoms, less complications from a Covid infection.

    That would explain the many positive tested folks without any, or with only mild symptoms.

    That would also explain the range of reactions to the vaccines.

  • Vaccine zealots pretty quiet lately.

  • Sen. Ron Johnson stated yesterday on Fox Business, that 84% of new Covid cases in Israel are of vaccinated people.

    Repeat: 84% of new Covid cases in Israel are people that have been injected.

    The covid injection does not work against the delta variant. This is not being talked about in US news.

    • Fucking MoRon Johnson.

      Hannity, Rivera, Graham are all promoting vaccines because they fucking work.

      And, they’re only going to lose their viewers if they don’t keep up with it.

      • Go read the Israel times or the Jerusalem post.

        • “But then the vaccination effort actually took hold. Israel dropped from a high of around 10,000 new daily cases in January to a seven-day average of as low as 10 last month. It began logging some days with zero deaths in April, and has recorded about 100 confirmed deaths in the last three months. If there is one country that reinforced the efficacy of the vaccines, it became Israel. And if there was one country that epitomized the sloppiness of the anti-vaccine movement, it, too, was Israel…
          While cases are indeed rising significantly in Israel because of the more vaccine-resistant delta variant, that’s from a very low baseline. The country remains at a fraction of its former case numbers. The seven-day average is at about 800 new daily cases, or less than one-tenth of the January peak.”
          https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2021/07/19/vaccine-skeptics-zero-israel-again-some-reason/

    • “Israel Reports COVID Vaccine Effectiveness Against Infection Down to 40%; Data Might Be Skewed
      Same Israeli data shows effectiveness of COVID vaccine in preventing hospitalizations and severe symptoms at 88 percent and 91 percent, respectively” https://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/.premium-israel-reports-effectiveness-of-covid-vaccine-against-infection-drops-to-40-percent-1.10021477

      In other words, the number people with mild symptoms have increased due to the more infectious varieties of Covid-19 but the vaccine is still preventing severe illness and hospitalization.
