FACTORS AFFECTING THE NUMBER OF CASES. >> THINGS LIKE RACE AND ETHNICITY, SOCIOECONOMIC STATUS, EDUCATION, GENDER, SEX, THESE KINDS OF FACTORS.

As COVID-19 cases surge across California, Sacramento County health officials said there is no single outbreak affecting any ZIP code. Data released Wednesday from the county public health department shows there are eight ZIP codes where 1,200 or more cases of COVID-19 have been reported.ZIP code 95823, which includes Valley Hi and North Laguna, reported the highest number of cases at 2,693. That ZIP code also has one of the higher populations in the county, a factor experts said could factor into the higher number of cases.“You’re going to expect to see across the board, more diseases in places where you have more people because it requires people to be there in order for more cases to occur,” said Mathew Schmidtlein, a professor at Sacramento State.Here are the ZIP codes with highest reported cases:95608: 1,515 cases95624: 1,601 cases95670: 1,363 cases95758: 1,292 cases95822: 1,254 cases95823: 2,693 cases95828: 1,716 cases95838: 1,364 casesSchmidtlein said the data shows the impacts COVID-19 is having on certain communities, but said understanding why those communities are more affected takes more work.“We can’t really speak to the true actual underlying risk without understanding those other characteristics that are influencing susceptibility,” Schmidtlein said.County health officials said much of the spread is due to “widespread private gatherings with non-household members.” (Source: www.kcra.com)

Area

In 1967, Ronald Reagan became the last Governor of California to live permanently in the city. The 1980s and 1990s saw the closure of several local military bases: McClellan Air Force Base, Mather Air Force Base, and Sacramento Army Depot. In 1980, there was another flood. In spite of military base closures and the decline of agricultural food processing, Sacramento has continued to experience population growth in recent years. Primary sources of population growth are an influx of residents from the nearby San Francisco Bay Area, as well as immigration from Asia and Latin America.

In 1848, when James W. Marshall discovered gold at Sutter's Mill in Coloma (some 50 mi or 80.5 km northeast of the fort), numerous gold-seekers came to the area, increasing the population. In August 1848, Sutter Sr.'s son, John Sutter Jr., arrived to assist his father in reducing his indebtedness. The Sutters struggled to contain the effects of thousands of new gold miners and prospectors in the area, many who squatted on unwatched portions of the vast Sutter lands, or stole various unattended Sutter properties or belongings. For Sutter, his employee's discovery of gold in the area turned out to be a bane. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)
