COVID-19 Statistics | Feb. 3, 2022 – Lost Coast Outpost

Humboldt County Public Health reported today one brand-new hospitalization due to COVID-19, a resident aged 80 or older. An extra 96 new cases were also reported, giving 17,722 the overall number of confirmed positive cases for the virus.Daily reported positive cases of COVID-19 have continued to decline from the peak of record-high numbers in January, however health officials caution that neighborhood transmission of the infection and verified cases remain high and a boost in hospitalizations tend to lag a couple of weeks after the peak.Residents, particularly those who are unvaccinated, are encouraged to take protective steps versus the extremely transmissible Omicron variation by washing hands frequently, wearing a well-fitted mask approved by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), distancing six feet from others when possible and avoiding crowds and badly ventilated areas. The state remains under a mandatory mask requirement order in all indoor public areas through Feb. 15.COVID-19 vaccines stay reliable against the virus, but CDC information reveals their efficiency at preventing infection or serious disease wanes in time, particularly in individuals aged 65 or older. The CDC and other public health officials advise eligible people aged 12 and older receive a booster, which increases the immune reaction and supplies additional protection versus infection and serious disease.While immunized and unvaccinated people are both at high threat to get COVID-19, the danger of serious results for those who are unvaccinated remains substantially greater. According to the most recent information from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), unvaccinated individuals are 8 times most likely to get COVID-19, 13 times more likely to be hospitalized from COVID-19 and 22 times most likely to die from COVID-19 than those who are vaccinated with a booster.As always, Humboldt Countys vaccination and screening services are readily available totally free of charge. While walk-ins are allowed at all Public Health clinics and some drug store vaccination sites, consultations are advised for all vaccinations and are the very best way to ensure a shot is available during your check out.
