Race/Ethnicity Trend Report

About COVID-19

Since the beginning of the pandemic, substantial COVID-19 inequities have been observed by age, race, ethnicity, and location across the COVID-19 continuum from infection and hospitalization to mortality. While all demographic disparities are important to monitor and address, those by race/ethnicity are particularly significant. In Santa Clara County, Latinos and Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders have higher rates of COVID-19 infections than other racial/ethnic groups. Moreover, these two groups, along with African Americans, account for more deaths from COVID-19 than their share of the population. Similar trends have been observed in other counties within California as well as across the U.S. However, it is important to note that it is not an individual’s race or ethnicity that makes them more likely to be infected with COVID-19 – the virus is exploiting longstanding social and structural vulnerabilities that disproportionately burden communities of color and immigrant communities. Examples of these vulnerabilities include disparities in access to housing, education, healthcare, and employment. These disparities then directly translate into individuals of color experiencing greater levels of exposure and worse health outcomes than their White counterparts.

In order for the Public Health Department to adequately control the spread of COVID-19 in our county and reduce the associated morbidity and mortality, we closely monitor key indicators and develop interventions to help reduce inequities. Some of these interventions include increasing testing capacity in communities that have higher rates of transmission, working with community groups to increase awareness of COVID-19 and steps to protect against it, messaging about COVID-19 in languages other than English, and providing resources such as groceries, rental assistance and hotel rooms for people that need help safely isolating or quarantining.

This report provides detailed data on the demographic characteristics of people infected with COVID-19 over time in Santa Clara County. COVID-19 cases reported to the Public Health Department are shown by age group, race/ethnicity, and city of residence. These data are presented for the past four weeks and since the beginning of the pandemic.

Data are presented as case rates, which is the number of cases per 100,000 people in the population of interest. Please read the data notes related to each dashboard to understand limitations in reporting.

This report is updated monthly on the first Thursday of the month.​

Data Notes: Cases are reported by the date that the specimens were collected for testing. Cases that do not have a valid specimen collection date are not shown in the graph. The 7-day average case rate per 100,000 is the average number of new cases each day in the past 7 days divided by the size of the population, and multiplied by 100,000. Data for the most recent 7 days are not shown in the graph.
