*“Hospitalizations” in the statewide and Santa Rosa County totals is a count of all laboratory confirmed cases in which an inpatient hospitalization occurred at any time during the course of illness. Most of these people are longer be hospitalized. The FDOH does not provide a count of patients currently hospitalized. The Escambia County number is current data compiled each day from the local hospitals.

**On cases by location, the city is based upon zip code and is not always received as part of the initial notification. There may be a delay in reporting locations as a result, and locations will not total the daily case increase as a result.

***The Florida Department of Health does not have a clear standard or definition of “recovered” and does not report a number of recovered individuals. Escambia County is reporting an approximate recovery number defined as the total cases prior to last month, minus deaths. In other words, anyone that tested positive more than a month ago is presumed to have recovered by Escambia County.

    Looking at the effort to locally vaccinate…
    There are approximately 54000 people over 65 in Escambia county. Regarding the Publix vaccine rollout, each of the 6 Publix would have to vaccinate 9000 people to cover this amount. Per the roll out figures thus far it would take about 72 days to do this if the supply was there to do it…which it obviously isn’t and isn’t available in that quantity even over time. Obviously not every senior is going to want it but I think most do seem to. Anyway this gives you some idea of what is needed here in Escambia county, FL to even get our seniors vaccinated even in a few months even with more vaccination sites. It’s just going to require more vaccine and way, way more expansive vaccination sites than the county has rolled out.

    Let’s put these numbers in better perspective. By my calculations and considering real world situations if you are in a group of about 12 people chances are at least 1 of those people has the virus. Think about that next time you go to a place you don’t have to be where there is a group of 12 or more people, especially indoors. Think you might want to wear a mask or more sensibly stay away from groups!
