Where We’re At: Sept. 21

Note: Weekly case updates are each Tuesday. Vaccine data is updated weekly or whenever new results are available

Anaheim, Orange County and all of California are seeing some stabilization amid a surge that began in late June.

For the seven days ending on Sept. 21, Anaheim saw a decrease in cases reported compared to the week prior. 

With kids back in the classroom and on the sports fields among the continuing spread of the delta variant, it remains unclear if we'll see another uptick in cases. Some models have predicted a peak for this surge in mid-September.

The rise in cases has been driven by those who are unvaccinated with fewer and less severe cases among those who are vaccinated.

Anaheim is seeing an average of about 35 new cases per day, similar to the early fall 2020 case surge but well below the winter surge of late 2020-2021.

Orange County is seeing about 350 daily cases, also on par with the early fall 2020 surge.

Deaths remain low and hospitalizations are trending down. Most deaths and hospitalizations are among those who are not vaccinated.

While concerning, there's a solution to slow the spread  vaccines.

Cases among the vaccinated are a fraction of those among the unvaccinated and often come with no symptoms and nearly always with no severe illness, hospitalization or death.

We're seeing vaccines slowly increase across Anaheim and the county, which is likely helping with flattening the curve of this new surge.

It is a reminder to all those who are eligible and without overriding health concerns to get vaccinated.

Shots are free and widely available at city and county sites, pharmacies, retailers and doctor's offices.
