10 New Deaths and 1,703 New Cases of Confirmed COVID-19 in Los Angeles County

10 New Deaths and 1,703 New Cases of Confirmed COVID-19 in Los Angeles County

July 26, 2020

 

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (Public Health) has confirmed 10 new deaths and 1,703 new cases of COVID-19.

 

The data reported today is incomplete due to delays in the State electronic lab reporting system. The number of cases is expected to increase in the coming days once the data becomes available.

 

Public Health is reporting 2,033 confirmed cases currently hospitalized and 31% of these people are confirmed cases in the ICU. There are a total of 2,628 confirmed and suspect cases that are currently hospitalized and 16% of these people are on ventilators.  The hospitalization data is incomplete due to data from six non-reporting hospitals not being part of today's update.

 

To date, Public Health has identified 173,995 positive cases of COVID-19 across all areas of L.A. County, and a total of 4,360 deaths. 

 

Of the 10 new deaths, three people that passed away (excluding Long Beach and Pasadena) were over the age of 80, three people who died were between the ages of 65 and 79 years old, one person who died was between the ages of 50 and 64 years old, and one person who died was between the ages of 30 and 49 years old. Seven people had underlying health conditions including three people over the age of 80 years old, three people between the ages of 65 and 79 years old, and one person between the ages of 50 and 64 years old.  Two deaths were reported by the City of Long Beach. Cumulatively, 92% percent of people who died from COVID-19 had underlying health conditions.

 

Of those who died, information about race and ethnicity is available for 4,069 people (99 percent of the cases reported by Public Health); 48% of deaths occurred among Latino/Latinx residents, 25% among White residents, 15% among Asian residents, 11% among African American/Black residents, less than 1% among Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander residents and 1% among residents identifying with other races. Upon further investigation, 33 cases and one death reported earlier were not LA County residents.

 

Testing results are available for nearly 1,640,000 individuals with 10% of all people testing positive. 

 

“We send our condolences and prayers to our neighbors who have lost loved ones to COVID-19 including the families and colleagues mourning two devoted first responders — a City of Los Angeles Fire Department firefighter and a Los Angeles Police Department officer," said Barbara Ferrer, PhD, MPH, MEd, Director of Public Health. “The actions each of us take affect the lives of others including the very people we rely on to protect us — first responders and healthcare workers. We know that staying physically distant from people not in your household, wearing face coverings and washing hands frequently works to slow the spread of COVID-19 and saves lives. This pandemic has been tragic for many and frustrating and exhausting for most.  We know the sooner we get back to slowing the spread the sooner we can move forward on our recovery journey.”

 

Public Health is asking business owners to renew their commitment to infectious disease control measures and adhere to the Health Officer Order. They are urged to take immediate action to implement strategies that protect workers and customers. The Health Officer Order mandates all indoor operations at many businesses must be suspended. This includes the closure of indoor operations at restaurants, houses of worship, gyms and fitness centers, museums, hair salons and barbershops and personal care services.  Violations of the Health Officer Order can result in citations, fines, and the full closure of non-compliant facilities.

 

It’s important if someone thinks they could be positive for COVID-19 and are awaiting testing results, to stay at home and act as if they are positive. This means self-isolating for 10 days and 24 hours after symptoms and fever subside. If a person tests positive for COVID-19, they should plan on receiving a call from a public health specialist to discuss how to protect themselves and others, to find out where they may have been, and who they were in close contact with while infectious.

 

Public Health has a dedicated call line for confirmed cases of COVID-19. If you are positive for COVID-19 and have not yet connected with a public health specialist or need more information on services, call toll-free at 1-833-540-0473. Residents who do not have COVID-19 should continue to call 211 for resources or more information.
