Situation Summary

South Bay Los Angeles – Sunday, September 13th

The overall trend in new confirmed case counts for the local beach cities continues to come down substantially from the peaks of late July and early August. There is a new chart below that shows the daily average new confirmed case rates for the local South Bay cities that are requesting a variance from the Governor to progress to the state’s re-opening Red Tier in advance of the rest of Los Angeles county. The qualification metrics for Red Tier include a requirement for the daily case rate to drop below 7 per 100,000 people for the two previous weeks.

There were no new deaths recorded among the local beach cities this past week. The count of deaths for Torrance actually decreased by one this past week? Presumably one of the city’s deaths the prior week was recoded somewhere outside of the local beach cities.

We’ll provide (brief) explanations about these new scorecards but 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.

The chart on the right shows the same but normalized with each city’s population and expressed as a rate per 100,000 residents. Both charts proportionally scale the diameter of the circles to each city’s counts and rates.

Please note: the four pairs of bubble charts below reflect the data as posted Friday afternoon. The county public health department has not updated the numbers underlying these charts since.

There is a separate Situation Summary for Los Angeles County covering the county as a whole.

    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.
