The dataset provides number of new and cumulative cases deaths with COVID-19 over time among Santa Clara County residents. Deaths are listed separately for patients at Long Term Care Facilities because patients in these facilities are more isolated than the general public and represent a particularly vulnerable population. Source: California Reportable Disease Information Exchange. Data Notes: Deaths are reported by the date of death. Death accounted for in the dataset do not necessarily mean that the individuals died from COVID-19.
The dataset provides number of new and cumulative COVID-19 cases over time among Santa Clara County residents. A case is someone who tests positive for COVID-19 using viral testing performed in a lab. Source: California Reportable Disease Information Exchange. Data Notes: Cases are reported by the date that the specimens were collected for testing. Values for the most recent 5 days are likely to increase as additional results are received.
The dataset summarizes the average rate of COVID-19 tests completed by date among Santa Clara County residents by major healthcare systems in the county. The daily average rate of tests is the daily average number of tests completed over the past 7 days per 100,000 people served by the individual healthcare system. Each ‘test’ or ‘testing incident’ represents at least one specimen tested per person, per day. This does not represent the number of individuals tested, as some people are tested multiple times over time because of the risk of frequent exposure. Source: California Reportable Disease Information Exchange. Data notes: The State of California has defined an initial goal of at least 150 tests per day per 100,000 people. Bay Area County Health Officers set a goal of 200 tests per day per 100,000 people.
The dataset summarizes counts and rates of cumulative COVID-19 deaths by zip code in Santa Clara County. When a death occurs at a Long Term Care Facility (LTCF), the death will be counted for the zip code in which the LTCF is located; so zip codes with large LTCFs or LTCFs that experienced an outbreak may have higher death counts for this reason. Information about the number of LTCF deaths in the county can be found on the LTCF dashboard.Source: California Reportable Disease Information Exchange.
