San Diego County Health and Welfare Agency We reported 881 new cases of COVID-19, but there were no new deaths on Saturday as delta variants continued to proliferate among unvaccinated individuals.

Twenty-three new hospitalizations were reported on Saturday, bringing the total to a total of 15,885, reducing one patient from the intensive care unit and bringing the total number of ICU hospitalizations to date to 1,726.

The Health Organization reported 1,273 new COVID-19 cases on Friday. This is the highest total number per day since February 5th. The positive test rate increased from less than 1% just two months ago to 8.5%.

Due to the recent surge in incidents, the county has recommended that all San Diegans wear masks indoors, regardless of vaccination status.

“Unvaccinated people are overwhelmingly infected and hospitalized,” said Dr. Wilma Uten, a county public health officer. “If you haven’t got the COVID-19 vaccine yet, get it now.”
