Today, after two days of record setting highs, Los Angeles County dropped down to a more reasonable 1,228 more new confirmed cases than the total announced yesterday. Today’s number of new cases is less than half that of Monday when the county Director of Public Health stated “What we really saw today, and I think what we’ve been seeing all along is what I would call a real increase that is attributed to more community transmission.”

New hospitalizations decreased today to sixty-four from seventy-four yesterday. New deaths today remained at the same thirty-four. Inside the hospitals, the current number of COVID-19 patients increased 2.7% from 1,515 to 1,556. The number of patients currently being treated in the ICU decreased very slightly from 409 to 405. The number of patients on ventilators also increased very slightly from 280 to 282.
