    ------------------------------------------------------------------


    2,137 COVID-19 deaths reported for the total US deaths for February 26, 2021 per @COVID19Tracking

    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    Roughly...California represents 21% of the US deaths for yesterday.

    California has about 12% of the US population.

    California appears to be over represented in the number of COVID-19 deaths for a random day selected of February 26, 2021

    CDC COVID Tracker weekly review is not giving any information on this variant but is reporting others....what's the deal?

    The emerging variants CDC is closely monitoring have mutations in the virus genome that alter the characteristics and cause the virus to act differently in ways that are significant to public health (e.g., causes more severe disease, spreads more easily between humans, requires different treatments, changes the effectiveness of current vaccines). It’s important to understand that genetic mutations are expected, and some variants can spread and become predominant while others subside.

    02/11/21 – To maintain a limited number of colors and allow for an easier comparison between states, the data ranges have changed from 1-50 to 1-100.

    *The cases identified above are based on a sampling of SARS-CoV-2-positive specimens and do not represent the total number of B.1.1.7, B.1.351, and P.1 lineage cases that may be circulating in the United States and may not match numbers reported by states, territories, tribes, and local officials.

    †Numbers will be updated on Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday by 7:00 pm.

      Waiting to see if the California strain is added to the today's CDC variant update. The variant report should be out by 7pm EST.

      CDPH is also monitoring the variants of interest shown in the table below due to recent evidence that they might be more transmissible. Though they are known by two different lineage names, the B.1.427 and B.1.429 strains are closely related. Together, these two variants have been called the West Coast Strain. Because their clinical and epidemiologic significance is not yet known, CDC and CDPH do not consider them variants of concern at this time.


      Known Variants of Interest in California

      As of February 25, 2021
      Variant Number of Cases Caused by Variant
      B.1.427 1088
      B.1.429 2771

      Note: The cases identified above that have been sequenced are based on a sampling of all SARS-CoV-2-positive specimens and do not represent the total number or estimated proportion of cases that may be circulating in California. The number of California samples sequenced is the number of sequences submitted to GISAID and is not a complete list of all sequences completed to date. Numbers are updated on Thursdays by 12 noon but reflect data posted on GISAID the day prior.​
