Demographics

The charts below display available information on demographics and transmission category for confirmed cases and deaths in San Francisco. While these figures show certain groups being particularly impacted by COVID-19, it’s important to note that COVID-19 impacts all San Franciscans. Everyone is strongly advised to continue taking all precautions to protect themselves and others by staying home as much as possible, wearing a face covering, and staying at least six feet away from others when going out for essential activities. Visit SF.gov/coronavirus or call 311 to learn more.
Data Notes: Demographic and transmission data are based on information reported from case interviews, laboratories, and providers. This data may not be immediately available for recently reported cases. In the race/ethnicity data shown below, the "Other” category includes those who identified as Other or with a race/ethnicity that does not fit the choices collected. The “Unknown” includes individuals who did not report a race/ethnicity to their provider, could not be contacted, or declined to answer. Comorbidities for COVID-19 deaths are reported as having one or more underlying health conditions, such as chronic disease, present in a patient at the time of death. Because of the low number of deaths due to COVID-19, demographic and risk data proportions are subject to daily fluctuation. Conclusions about trends should be drawn cautiously. Figures will be updated as information becomes available.
