Today’s data release on current SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) cases in Escambia county marks two sequential days with record-high reporting of percent positivity, with a nearly 20% (19.9%) positivity rate released on August 7 and followed by a nearly 25% (24.9%) positivity rate with the release this morning.
Accompanying these findings is another grim statistic: the highest single day reporting of 543 new positive results for Escambia county, surpassing the prior high of 467 reported for July 11.
While an explanation of these numbers is not immediately available the introduction of rapid testing protocol in the county would be a prime focus: test integrity (reliability, accuracy) as well as evaluation of the pool of individuals tested at the rapid protocol facility – symptomatic vs asymptomatic, isolation parameters undertaken by those individuals (before and after testing), contact tracing of positive result individuals.
Bottom line – the message remains the same: masking, distancing, hand sanitizer, and routine cleansing of common spaces should remain centerpiece to everyone’s daily habits.
