Confirmed Cases – beach cities


This chart shows the cumulative number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 for each of the beach cities in South Bay Los Angeles (solid coloured lines) as well as Los Angeles County in total (grey dashed line). The latter is vertically scaled with the numbers shown on the left y-axis. The lines for the individual cities are shown vertically scaled with the numbers shown on the rightt y-axis.

Note, the chart featured on this page above covers just the dates from July 1st forward for purposes of clarity. If you prefer, the full (perhaps less legible but complete) chart from approximately mid-March is below.


You can see the evolution of confirmed cases in each of these beach cities on this chart. El Segundo, Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach are stable and doing well for the most part as visually evidenced on the chart. These cities have been managing to go up to several days without recording any new confirmed cases and mostly only plus one (sometimes two) when they do increase. Redondo Beach is doing a little less well but still managing to limit new confirmed cases to just one or two per day.

The outlier is Torrance (red line) adding a few to several (or more) new confirmed cases each day. There is only one short period lasting just a few days where the curve for Torrance steadied and resembles those typical of the other beach cities here. Otherwise, their regular pattern of aggressive increases resembles the curve for all of Los Angeles County (dotted grey line). The spikes of new confirmed cases in Torrance call for diligent monitoring…

    Redondo NoRed… does not so perhaps that is the case


    1. hello Solomons, thanks for writing. while there are more cases in Redondo than the other beach cities when you factor in their relative population size, it actually has a smaller percentage of its population tested positive than Manhattan Beach. please refer to the bubble chart maps on the right side. those circle areas are plotted normalized to 100,000 people for purposes of comparison.
