On Aug. 11, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) released the most recent statistics on COVID-19 and updates on the state’s pandemic response.

Statewide COVID-19 Data as of Aug. 11:

California has 3,969,722 confirmed cases to date. Numbers may not represent true day-over-day change as reporting of test results can be delayed.

There were 9,925 newly reported confirmed cases Tuesday.

Cases are increasing statewide, largely among unvaccinated populations. For the week of August 7, the average case rate among unvaccinated Californians is 51 per 100,000 per day and the average case rate among vaccinated Californians is significantly lower at 8.2 per 100,000 per day. The vast majority of new cases are among the unvaccinated with 600% higher case rates among the unvaccinated than for those who are vaccinated.

The 7-day positivity rate is 6.4%

There have been 76,044,392 tests conducted in California. This represents an increase of 183,877 during the prior 24-hour reporting period.

There have been 64,976 COVID-19 deaths since the start of the pandemic.

As of August 11, according to the CDC, 77.5% of eligible Californians have received one dose. Providers have reported to CDPH that a total of 44,854,015 vaccine doses have been administered statewide. Numbers do not represent true day-to-day change as reporting may be delayed.

The risk for COVID-19 exposure and infection continues as a number of Californians remain unvaccinated. With the emergence of the more transmissible Delta variant, there is a renewed urgency to get all eligible Californians vaccinated as quickly as possible and complete their two-dose vaccination process if they are receiving Pfizer or Moderna.

CDPH is reminding unvaccinated Californians that the COVID-19 vaccine is safe, free and provides excellent protection from severe COVID-19 illness, including the Delta variant, hospitalization, and death.

Vaccination appointments for individuals aged 12+ can be made by visiting myturn.ca.gov. The consent of a parent or legal guardian may be needed for those between the ages of 12 and 17 to receive a vaccination. Visit Vaccinate All 58 to learn more about the safe and effective vaccines available.
