​​The expanded data include new information on city of residence and race/ethnicity
Santa Clara County, CA – The County of Santa Clara’s Public Health Department has expanded its COVID-19 data dashboard with additional information. The new details include confirmed cases by city of residence and deaths by race/ethnicity.
Community transmission is believed to be widespread throughout Santa Clara County, and limited testing capacity means case counts represent only a small portion of actual cases within each city.
"With various levels of testing in different communities, the city-level data do not necessarily represent the level of spread in these cities," said County of Santa Clara Health Officer Dr. Sara Cody. "Whether there are three confirmed cases or 100 hundred confirmed cases in any given city, we must behave as if the virus is everywhere, because it is."
The County is providing the breakdown by race/ethnicity of county residents who died with the novel coronavirus. The County does not have complete or accurate racial/ethnic breakdowns of confirmed cases in Santa Clara County, as is true for all counties across California and also at the state level. The County will release additional details on confirmed cases as they become available.
The County recognizes that social determinants of health, including race/ethnicity, employment, and income may affect the distribution of cases and the severity of cases across the community. The County and its community partners are actively working together to support and provide needed resources to communities who may be more vulnerable to the impacts of COVID-19.
