San Francisco Chronicle: The next COVID surge may hit San Francisco’s wealthy neighborhoods the hardest. Here’s why. “As COVID-19 case rates once more begin to climb in San Francisco, wealthy neighborhoods are seeing higher case rates than less-wealthy ones — a rare occurrence in a pandemic that has most deeply impacted lower-income people of color. But unlike the omicron wave last December, which started in wealthy neighborhoods and then quickly migrated to lower-income ones, public health experts say there’s a chance this latest wave could be the first to hit wealthy people harder — thanks both to pandemic fatigue within the demographic, and its relatively lower rates of natural immunity from prior infections.”
