So out of 280,000+ people, SLO County has ZERO people in the ICU for Covid?

Sounds like great news to me.

A slight increase that needs a bit of concern. Overall picture of things since the start in 2020, the trend is in the right direction.

I wish there would a weekly tracking of those who are hospitalized for drug overdoses, and those who died from drug overdoses. As COVid-19 weakens and wanes, the drug epidemic is rapidly increasing and destroying families and our nation. There should be just as much interest in the loss of those lives as well. After all, isn’t this also a serious health crisis that’s killing people, mostly young ones, in our county and nation?

Drug overdoses for the state.

Agreed with your concern.
