COVID-19 has killed more than 10,000 individuals in Washington state, according to health experts. According to The Seattle Times, the state Department of Health confirmed in its daily summary of virus trends that there had been 10,004 COVID-19 deaths, 931,071 infections, and 47,062 hospitalizations since the pandemic began.

The virus has claimed the lives of 2,197 persons in King County, the state’s most populated.

The county’s COVID-19 data dashboard shows 33 deaths in the last two weeks, up from 17 the previous two weeks, but county health officer Dr. Jeff Duchin said Friday that the county is still waiting to see how the recent surge in omicron variant infections has affected death statistics.

In King County, hospitalizations have increased by approximately fivefold since mid-December, putting pressure on already overburdened hospitals — through a peak in infections may be approaching later this month, according to Duchin.

While deaths haven’t started to rise again on a statewide level, the state’s top science officer, Dr. Tao Kwan-Gett, said this week that mortality can occasionally lag behind case counts by more than a month, implying that another spike in deaths is possible.
Unvaccinated people continue to have the highest risk of serious disease or death.
