New COVID-19 Cases in Alameda County Drops

After an increase in confirmed COVID-19 cases last week the case number appeared to drop by the weekend.

The Alameda County Public Health Department (ACPHD) reported there were 273 new coronavirus cases on Friday, July 17. It was the most cases since the outbreak began back in March. However, new confirmed cases did not top 60 for the next three days (52 on July 18, 60 on July 19, and 54 on July 20). Alameda County has had 9,383 confirmed COVID-19 cases as of Monday, July 20, according to the ACPHD dashboard.

Alameda County has had 167 confirmed deaths caused by COVID-19. The city of Alameda has had 149 confirmed COVID-19 cases total.

Alameda County is currently on the state’s “Watch List” and the way to get removed is to have key statistics headed down. Then the county will be allowed to reopen schools, open businesses and more.
