23 New Deaths and 1,476 New Cases of Confirmed COVID-19 in Los Angeles County

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (Public Health) has confirmed 50 new deaths and 2,303 new cases of COVID-19. New COVID-19 reported deaths continue to remain higher than last week's average of nearly 38 new deaths a day.

Deaths are a lagging indicator of the spread of COVID-19 and reflects exposures that occurred weeks earlier.

To date, Public Health has identified 190,693 positive cases of COVID-19 across all areas of L.A. County, and a total of 4,669 deaths. Upon further investigation, 91 cases and two deaths reported earlier were not L.A. County residents.

There are 1,904 people with confirmed cases of COVID-19 currently hospitalized and 30% are in the ICU.

Of the 50 new deaths reported today, 12 people that passed away (excluding Long Beach and Pasadena) were over the age of 80 years old, 15 people who died were between the ages of 65 and 79 years old, 15 people who died were between the ages of 50 and 64 years old, and five people who died were between the ages of 30 and 49 years old. Thirty-six people had underlying health conditions including 12 people over the age of 80 years old, 13 people between the ages of 65 and 79 years old, seven people between the ages of 50 and 64 years old, and four people between the ages of 30 and 49 years old. Two deaths were reported by the City of Pasadena and one death was reported by the City of Long Beach.

Ninety-two percent of the people who died from COVID-19 had underlying health conditions. Of those who died, information about race and ethnicity is available for 4,365 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.

Testing results are available for nearly 1,779,000 individuals with 10% of all people testing positive.

“To the many families who have lost loved ones to COVID-19, we send you our deepest condolences and prayers," said Barbara Ferrer, PhD, MPH, MEd, Director of Public Health. “The number of deaths we are seeing is a sad reminder of the devastation COVID-19 causes. We can save lives and slow the spread of COVID-19 by modifying our behavior when we are around others. Only by doing our part and working together can we reduce transmission to a lower rate that allows more people to get back to work and allows our children to return to their classrooms. Hopefully, as you make your decisions about how to spend this beautiful weekend, you will do so understanding your power to affect the health of the entire community.”

Immediate actions by business owners and residents to slow the spread of COVID-19 are urgently needed. Adequate testing and case investigations are critical tools to contain spread, but in order to slow the spread of COVID-19 everyone needs to comply with the directives already in place. Laboratory reports for positive COVID-19 test results need to be timely. Businesses must abide by Health Officer Orders, implement the required infection control protocols and report any COVID-19 outbreaks to Public Health. Everyone has to wear a face covering, avoid gathering with people you don’t live with, stay home as much as possible, and practice hand hygiene. People that are COVID-19 positive should respond to Public Health specialist calls and provide the information requested during the case interview process. Self-isolating and quarantining must continue for people that are positive and those individuals exposed to a positive case.

People who have underlying health conditions remain at much greater risk for serious illness from COVID-19. The elderly or people that have serious underlying health conditions should stay home as much as possible.
