The Cincinnati Health Department has added a new feature to its COVID-19 data dashboard that allows the public to see a general breakdown of what types of large gatherings those with the virus have attended — a family party, a protest, a restaurant, a bar, etc.
By clicking on the "contact tracing tab," you can see how many people with COVID-19 the health department has surveyed, and then what percentage of them had attended a large gathering. It further breaks down what type of gathering they went to, as well as age, race and gender.
According to the data posted Aug. 6, 31% of those with COVID-19 who had been to a large gathering had been to a nightclub or bar, which adds up to about 48 people. That's almost double the percentage of the second-highest gathering type attended by those with the virus: parties with family or friends.
On Aug. 5, the city reported 20 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 81 total deaths since the pandemic began.
