The Mission District has reported the most positive coronavirus cases in San Francisco. The city has released a map breaking down the information by zip code. The 94110 is home to a large Latino population, Public Health Director Grant Colfax says 25% of coronavirus are among that community even though they make up only 15% of the city’s population.

“The populations and locations in our city that are most affected by health disparities, by income inequality, and by structural racism are also going to be the areas most affected by this pandemic,” said Colfax.

Also hit hard is SOMA, taking in the outbreak at the MSC South homeless shelter, but Dr. Colfax points out the information is limited.

“The map does not show the prevalence or the total number of COVID-19 cases in the zip codes because most people have not been tested,” said Colfax.

Mayor London Breed also weighed in on the release of the data.

“This in no way indicates that some parts of our city are safer than others,” said Breed.
