Mondays are typically slow coming off the weekend and today was no exception. Still, Torrance added four new confirmed cases to their count while Manhattan Beach contributed one to their total.

El Segundo has the fewest confirmed cases (38) among these South Bay beach cities but their smaller population means that Hermosa Beach still has the lowest case rate at 213.5 per 100,000 from their 42 cases. El Segundo currently has a case rate of 226.4 per 100,000 people. Torrance continues to have the most confirmed cases (now 453, more than two and a half times the next highest city, Redondo Beach, with their count of 167). Torrance also has the highest case rate at 303.5 per 100,000 people, the only one of these South Bay beach cities above the level of 300 per 100,000 people.

There have been no new deaths since last week when Torrance had three and Redondo had one. Torrance now has a cumulative total of 49 deaths which raises their mortality rate to 32.8 per 100,000 people. Redondo Beach’s eight fatalities and mortality rate of 11.6 per 100,000 people ranks them second behind Torrance among these South Bay beach cities. None of the other South Bay beach cities has experienced a fatality since the start of the month. El Segundo still has not had a single mortality.
