Weekly Summary

South Bay Los Angeles – Sunday, November 22nd

Considered as a whole, the number of new confirmed cases among the local beach cities this past week has exceeded the peak week of the mid-summer surge. This has been driven primarily by a new weekly record high in Torrance and a near record count in Redondo Beach. The weekly positivity rates for these cities have increased since the start of the month, most have increased significantly.

This past week, there were two new deaths among the residents of Redondo Beach and three among those of Torrance. The number of COVID patients in the local hospitals has significantly increased over last week. More ICU beds are occupied in the local hospitals than last week but there is still good availability for the ICU at Torrance Memorial.

Please leave us feedback about what you think of this new format and most especially what information you think is still missing that you might want to know.

  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.
