Where to find COVID stats


Re “This time feels different,” letters, July 22

A letter writer said she would be willing to submit to a new mask mandate if she knew more about how COVID-19 hospitaliz­ation and death rates compare for individual­s who have been vaccinated and boosted as opposed to individual­s who are not vaccinated and boosted.

On the website covid19.ca.gov, much of this informatio­n is available.

The latest data for this type of comparison is from June 27 to July 3. Unvaccinat­ed people were 5.9 times more likely to get COVID-19 than vaccinated people who had received their booster. Unvaccinat­ed people were 7.1 times more likely to be hospitaliz­ed with COVID-19 and were 9.9 times more likely to die from COVID-19 than people who were vaccinated and boosted.

The site has detailed explanatio­ns about these statistics, as well as more informatio­n about the spread of COVID-19.
