King County releases breakdown data of COVID-19 cases, deaths

Washington’s virus-related death toll surpasses 129 as of Wednesday, March 25.

For the first time, King County Public Health is now providing a breakdown of COVID-19 cases and deaths by city, gender and age in a new data dashboard.

As of March 24, King County has recorded 100 deaths and 1,359 confirmed cases. Statewide, there are at least 129 total deaths, and the total case count has surpassed 2,469.

Public Health has been tracking the virus since Jan. 21. The county provided an interactive data dashboard March 25 with in-depth breakdowns of virus cases, including by age, gender and location.

A graph showing the trend of COVID-19 cases may appear to be flat or declining, but this does not represent an actual decline, Public Health announced Wednesday.

“Because there are delays in reporting data from various laboratories, meaning case totals for any given day are commonly reported two or three days later,” the department reported. “As more data arrives, each recent day’s count will go up.”

For a more accurate representation, the deparrtment said the public should look at the total case count and its rate of increase.

King County has received 10,843 test results with 9,484 returning as negative and 1,359 coming back positive. For females, there have been 689 positive cases and 5,666 negative cases. For males, there have been 621 positive cases and 3,775 negative cases.
