Weekly Summary – South Bay Los Angeles

Updated Sunday, February 21st

Last week, new confirmed cases among the beach cities of South Bay Los Angeles from El Segundo down to Torrance mostly saw minimal decreases (and a slight increase in Hermosa Beach from the prior week).  The dramatic downward momentum in new confirmed cases over the past several weeks has now stalled at a level roughly where the local beach cities were at the peak of the summer surge in mid-July. The weekly positivity rates for all the local beach cities except Torrance have decreased down to single digits. Last week, there were five new pandemic deaths among the residents of Torrance, and one each in El Segundo and Redondo Beach.

  1. It would be nice to see what last year & previous years comparisons were as this only tells part of the story.

    1. hello Jeanne, thanks for having a look at the data and charts here and leaving a comment. all the numbers charted here of tests, cases, hospitalizations, and deaths are for COVID-19 so there wouldn’t be any corollary data for previous years. we are looking at CDC published numbers for influenza and pneumonia deaths from previous years for comparison and hope to develop some charts of these so please check back.
