For most of San Francisco’s pandemic lifespan, coronavirus has most deeply impacted the city’s most susceptible neighborhoods — poorer communities with higher figures of vital staff, and the most Black and Latino people. But December’s Omicron surge has turned this trend on its head, infecting whiter, fairly young and a lot more affluent neighborhoods at far increased premiums.
The Chronicle analyzed facts from the San Francisco Section of Community Well being to seem at how distinctive neighborhoods’ case rates in comparison in excess of the pandemic, up to Dec. 24, the most modern day with robust knowledge accessible. As of that day, the Marina, Hayes Valley and Russian Hill neighborhoods experienced the highest situation premiums of any neighborhood in the city. The Marina and Russian Hill experienced 20% of their verified coronavirus conditions in the past month alone. For the analysis, we employed the neighborhood definitions produced by the San Francisco Arranging Commission.
