We’re sorry to report three deaths today. They were a man in his 40s, a man in his 70s, and a man in his 80s. On Monday, the death of a man in his 80s was mistakenly omitted from this area of the COVID-19 Daily Update, but his death was counted in Monday’s total number of deaths reported. As of today in Shasta County, 377 people have died from COVID-19.
The past two months have shown that COVID-19 and the delta variant do not discriminate based on age. In September, the 12-to-19 age group had the largest rate of cases (2,495). In October, the 30-to-39 age group had the highest rate of cases (1,637). See the Positive Case Rate chart below for more information.
The vaccines work. Data continue to show that the COVID-19 vaccines are extremely effective in protecting fully vaccinated people from catching and spreading the virus. CDC data show that in August 2021, the risk of dying from COVID-19 in the U.S. was more than 11 times greater for unvaccinated people than for fully vaccinated people.
Kids aren’t spared from the harm of COVID-19. In the U.S., more than 1.9 million children ages 5-11 have been infected during the pandemic, 8,300 have been hospitalized, and 94 have died, the CDC reported last week. This makes COVID-19 one of the top 10 causes of death for 5- to 11-year-olds in the United States. Additional negative impacts among youth include struggling with long COVID, missing school and spreading the disease in the community.
