COVID-19 data show some concerning trends as well as promising signs for protection through vaccination

The Washington State Department of Health yesterday released the latest statewide situation report on COVID-19.

Report findings include:

  • Case counts have increased slightly in western Washington and plateaued in eastern Washington as of late February. 
  • Most counties have seen declines in case counts since the first week of January, but cases have flattened in several counties and are starting to increase again in others. 
  • Cases are increasing among younger adults aged 20-29 and 30-39. This has previously been an early warning sign of larger surges in the general population. Case counts in other age groups were declining, but have now flattened.
  • There is a sharp declines in hospital admission rates among people 70 and older, possibly because those groups are among the first to get vaccinated. 
  • COVID-19 transmission is continuing at about the same level after declines through January and February.

Overall, concern remains for the possibility of a fourth wave of activity, along with the increases in variants of the virus. As vaccination efforts accelerate, it’s critical that we all maintain the precautions we’ve been taking to stop the spread of the virus.
