San Mateo County COVID-19 Data is Flawed.

By Michael G. Stogner

San Mateo County was the only County in the entire Bay Area to remain off of the State of California’s Watchlist. Why was that a goal for the Supervisors and County Manager instead of Protecting the Residents of SMC.

San Mateo County News.com has reported for weeks that the data did not add up. We also contacted County Manager Mike Callagy to explain the additional 15 ICU Beds and Staff that were reported on a single day only to disappear the next day.

His response was:

Michael,
I don’t know specifically, but I do know many hospitals now are able to easily convert rooms to ICU… it is not like the ICU wards they use to have.  Most rooms now are set up to convert to ICU.
Mike

Its fair to say that a Shut Down is in order until the real data is available.

Why would anybody believe San Mateo County with SFO and San Jose International Airport to the South not be a natural HotSpot.

 

SAN MATEO COUNTY HEALTH DATA

A significant unresolved problem with the State of California’s reporting system for communicable diseases (California Reportable Disease Information Exchange [CalREDIE]), has resulted in significant underreporting of COVID-19 testing results to San Mateo County Health and local health departments state-wide. Local health departments are receiving incomplete information regarding laboratory test results, which affects our ability to identify new cases of COVID-19, to accurately report the testing positivity rate in our community, and to identify the number of persons tested for the last few weeks. Without timely reports of all new lab results, it is impossible for the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and local health officials to identify the extent to which COVID-19 is circulating in the community. It also hinders our ability to conduct effective contact tracing and case investigations to slow the spread of COVID-19.

The extent of this issue is currently unknown, and the expected resolution date is also unknown.  San Mateo County Health is in conversations with CDPH, working to rapidly resolve this issue and creating new paths for laboratory results to be reported to our County. In the meantime, we are continuing to report the testing data we do receive and will make clear to the public which data reported on our website are affected by this issue. Data currently affected are in the County Data Dashboard, the Lab Testing Data Dashboard, the Cases by City map, and the Long Term Care Facility Data Dashboard. CDPH has confirmed that although received data are incomplete, the data are valid for those results we are receiving. We expect the testing positivity rate, the daily and cumulative case counts, and other data points on the County’s COVID-19 data dashboards to change as more complete test results are reported to San Mateo County Health.

31 Costco Employees Positive for COVID-19 at 4 Silicon Valley locations.

By Michael G. Stogner

I asked San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy How many San Mateo County Costco Employees have tested positive? His response was “Michael I do not have that information.” That would be good for the Residents of SMC to know.

The cases were reported to the county by Costco after workers reported their diagnoses to the company. 

Where were they tested and by who?

The LATIMES reported today that 31 employees from four locations in Santa Clara County have tested positive for COVID-19.

The largest cluster of coronavirus cases among workers of the warehouse chain’s stores in Santa Clara County — Northern California’s most populous — is the Costco in Sunnyvale, where 13 cases were reported between July 23 and 26.

Cases were also reported at Costco locations in San Jose on Senter Road, southeast of downtown, with eight cases between July 17 and 22; Gilroy, with six cases between July 24 and 30; and Mountain View, with four cases between July 15 and 29.

San Mateo County Data Dashboard.

By Michael G. Stogner

How does San Mateo County Government tell you that on July 30, 2020 there were 64 New Cases. Where does that data come from? It should come from LAB TESTING DATA. When you look at LTD you’ll see there is NO DATA for July 30, 2020.

Supervisor David Canepa is the problem.

By Michael G. Stogner

david_canepa

SMC Supervisor David Canepa

We have plenty of hospital beds and are ready for a surge. I don’t want to take a step back, but we must all be prepared. This will require an extraordinary effort at every level of government to ensure these businesses do not fail,” said Supervisor David Canepa. You can see he has shifted to protect businesses instead of Residents.

Supervisor Canepa knows his statement is Misleading and False ICU Beds are the issue not Surge Beds.

San Mateo County has 67 ICU Beds & Staff and was supposed to have 13 ICU Beds and Staff available to meet the 20% Availability Rate 67 ICU Beds & Staff x 20% = 13.4. You will see on the chart below July 23-24 the gray bar is blank the available beds & staff were 5 and 3. Does that sound like “We have plenty of hospital beds.”

San Mateo County Finally on State Watchlist.

By Michael G. Stogner

There was ZERO benefit for not being on this Watchlist since July 15, 2020. It’s difficult to find politicians who are not conflicted with the normal powers that get people elected. The Red Flags are simple to spot in a Pandemic when at first they are for protecting the residents and then the shift occurs to “We have got to get back to Work”

  • San Mateo County (has variance) is experiencing an elevated case rate that exceeds the State threshold. The County sees roots of community transmission related to social gatherings without sufficient physical distancing and wearing of facial coverings, as well as higher exposure for residents performing work that involves person-to-person contact and crowded housing conditions that make home isolation difficult.  Key actions to address the increase include: 1) expanding the case and contact investigation team that is following up on every COVID-19 positive case and related contacts to assure safe quarantine and isolation in order to break the chain of transmission; 2) developing strategies to strengthen support for those facing barriers in safely isolating or quarantining; 3) continuing to work with hospital system partners and our Medi-Cal managed care plan partner to monitor and understand hospitalizations, support effective pathways to appropriate levels of care and prepare for surge, 4) continuing to provide infection prevention expertise and specimen collection and test processing support to assist skilled nursing facilities and other congregate care facilities in protecting all residents and staff; 5) continuing to analyze the epidemiology of local spread to inform additional prevention strategies; 6) reinforcing community-wide messaging about the importance of key behaviors individuals can take (wearing facial coverings, maintaining physical distance, avoiding gatherings, washing hands and not touching one’s face) to keep themselves and the community safe; and 7) tailoring communication and outreach to the most impacted populations and communities to strengthen trust and engagement in case and contact investigation. The County continues to partner with cities, schools and community-based organizations and leaders to advocate for the longer-term policy changes that can prevent COVID-19 from exacerbating the burdens shouldered by the lowest income residents and populations of color.  San Mateo County also continues to work with the State’s decisions regarding reduced testing capacity at the Project Baseline sites and revised testing prioritization criteria that contribute to an increased positivity rate.  (Date added to CDM List: July 29, 2020) 

 

Congratulations and Stay Safe

SMC has 3 ICU Beds and Staff Available

By Michael G. Stogner

That number is supposed to be 13 not 3.

San Mateo County has consitantly had 67 ICU Beds and Staff until July 21, 2020. On that day the County’s Data Base showed 82 ICU Beds and Staff. I asked County Manager Mike Callagy which Hospital/s had the Beds and Staff. His response is below. Today the County says they have 64 Total ICU Beds and Staff. Why?

20% Availability of 67 ICU Beds and Staff equals 13, with the exception being 7/21/2020 16

According to the data published by San Mateo County for the last 10 days the County has not maintained the 20% availability of ICU Beds and Staff.

Below you will see ICU Beds Available 3. Remember they are supposed to have 13.

The above chart leaves blank (Gray) July 23-24 Staffed & Available Beds. Why?

SMC 605 Covid-19 Tests per day Average.

By Michael G. Stogner

San Mateo County should have been on the State’s Watchlist several days ago.

July 12-18, 2020 San Mateo County Tested 4238 for a daily average of 605. Why? According to Louise Rogers of SMC Health the County is supposed to be testing 1500 people per day.

San Mateo County has a population of at least 750,000 residents.

It’s time for the local Mayors to provide the testing for their residents.

July 19, 2020 San Mateo County had 8 ICU Beds and Staff available. They are supposed to maintain a 20% availability which would be 13 beds. July 15,16,17 & 19 they had less than the 20%.

SMC COVID-19 Positivity Rate 29.3%

By Michael G. Stogner

This screenshot is from the County Website at 7:45 AM today the data is for July 14, 2020.

Positivity Rate is 29.3% out of 41 Tested. Remember it’s supposed to be 1500 tested per day. I’m sure I could be reading/interpreting the numbers the wrong way.

What do you see?

San Mateo County It’s Time.

By Michael G. Stogner

You know it’s time when you see the Captain of the Ship putting on his life vest and sneaking onto the lifeboat, or the Pilot putting on his parachute.

We all know that we are responsible for our own safety, The Cavalry  is not coming.

The Federal, State, and County Government has Failed to provide Testing, Contact Tracing, PPE to all those who need it.

SACRAMENTO — The California Senate on Wednesday joined the Assembly in deciding not to return from its summer recess next week, citing the continued spread of the coronavirus, which has now infected several staffers and members in the Legislature.

The decision was announced on the same day that a second Assembly member, Republican Tom Lackey of Palmdale, acknowledged through a spokesman that he has tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

San Mateo County is home to San Francisco International Airport with direct flights from Wuhan. San Jose International Airport also has direct flights from Wuhan.

San Mateo County has Finally reached 0.0 Positivity July 10, 2020 Total Tested 9

San Mateo County has had been told to TEST 1500 people per day. July 8th they tested 141. They have only accomplished that 6 days. All Five County Supervisor are satisfied with those results. It’s Time for the Local Leaders the Mayors to protect the Residents in their Community, Provide Testing in their Cities. Enforce the State and County Health Orders.

July 10, 2020 SMC Tested only 9 People

SMC 0.0% COVID-19 Posiytivity Rate.

This is a PANDEMIC start acting like it.
