With a potentially catastrophic July 4 weekend ahead, here are some daily COVID-19 numbers.
New cases in the last 24 hours: 494
Active cases: 199 additional, up to 4,398.
Hospitalizations: Up by only one today, to 338, with 155 in ICU and 73 of those on ventilators.
Hospitalizations and active cases are higher than they’ve been in about four months.
I don’t have an updated vaccination number yet.
Get a shot dammit. You might want to wear a mask in crowds. Keep your distance if you can.
Update: the daily numbers with results from the two types of tests now combined.
