Palo Alto Online, the Mountain View Voice and the Almanac have put together a series of interactive charts to help you understand the proliferation of COVID-19 infections on the Peninsula, which you can find on our Atavist page. These charts will be updated as more information is released.
Ever since Santa Clara County reported the first patient with the coronavirus in the Bay Area on Jan. 31, the disease has spread throughout all nine counties in the region, with the number of confirmed cases escalating at a rapid pace.
Since officials issued a shelter-at-home order, cases in the Bay Area jumped from 798 on March 17 to 10,089 on May 12, with Santa Clara County accounting for nearly a quarter of the region's patients and more than a quarter of the region's 368 deaths. San Mateo County reported the fourth-highest number of cases in the region after Alameda County and San Francisco. County health leaders have said the number of confirmed cases is expected to rise as more testing becomes available.
