Oakland has more COVID-19 cases than Fremont, Hayward and Livermore combined

By Lynda Carson - May 6, 2020

Oakland — As local, state and federal government officials and businesses push to reopen the economy, numerous government officials are willing to sacrifice the lives of tens of thousands of people for the so-called economy. Click here, and see more links in comment section

Presently, according to John Hopkins University of Medicine, there are 3,753,112 known COVID-19 cases in the US, with over 73,000 known deaths. There may be many other cases and deaths they are not aware of.

Presently, Oakland has the most COVID-19 cases in Alameda County with 570 known cases as of May 6, 2020, and the numbers keep rising. According to the U.S. Census Bureau the estimated population of Oakland was 429,082 in July, 2018.

Oakland is one of the hot spots for the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic occurring in the Bay Area.

The combined estimated population of the cities of Fremont, Hayward, and Livermore were 487,696 in July, of 2018, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, and there were a total of 58,614 more people in the three cities than in Oakland at the time.

However, according to figures from the the Alameda County Health Department, as of May 6, 2020, Oakland has 570 known COVID-19 cases, compared to 536 known COVID-19 cases in the combined cities of Fremont, Hayward, and Livermore, even though the three cities combined have 58,614 more people than the city of Oakland.

This means that Oakland has 34 more known cases of COVID-19 presently, than the combined known COVID-19 cases in the three cities of Fremont, Hayward, and Livermore, even though Oakland has an estimated 58,614 fewer people than the cities of Fremont, Hayward, and Livermore according to the U.S Census Bureau.

Or another way to look at it, Oakland has more COVID-19 cases in Alameda County than the combined number of known COVID-19 cases in the cities of Berkeley, Alameda, Albany, Dublin, Emeryville, Newark, Piedmont, Pleasanton, San Leandro, Union City, Castro Valley, Fairview and Sunol. Oakland has 570 known cases, and the other cities mentioned above have a total of 562 known cases of COVID-19 presently.

In comparison to Oakland that had a population of 429,082 in July, 2018, Fresno County had a population of 999,101 as of 2019, which is more than double the population of Oakland. Fresno County has more than twice the population of Oakland, but has only 777 known COVID-19 cases presently, compared to 570 known COVID-19 cases in Oakland.

Nearby Marin County had an estimated population of 258,826 in 2019, with 247 known COVID-19 cases as of 5/6/2020, compared to 570 known cases in Oakland presently.

In comparison in nearby San Francisco, it has 1,754 known COVID-cases as of May 6, 2020. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, San Francisco had an estimated population of 883,305 in 2018.

Additionally, in nearby Contra Costa County there are presently 985 known cases of COVID-19, with a population of 1.154 million people as of 2019.

Whatever questions that people may have about the raging coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, they should ask themselves, their family, their friends, co-workers and loved ones, if they are willing to die for the economy.
