Hospitalizations in San Francisco, California, due to the coronavirus continue to drop and are down almost 25% since its peak in July, according to San Francisco Public Health Director Dr. Grant Colfax.
Colfax announced during a news briefing today that 88 people are currently hospitalized –– which is a slight decrease from last week.
Mayor London Breed said San Francisco is dedicating $446 million in the city’s latest budget for its Covid-19 response.
“That’s money that I wish we could divert to other places but unfortunately this is the reality of today, and I hope that’s not the reality of our next budget cycle,” Breed said.
So far, at least 7,692 people have been diagnosed with coronavirus in San Francisco and approximately 67 people have died.
