Los Angeles County Announces 17 New Deaths Related to COVID-19

1,003 New Cases of Confirmed COVID-19 in Los Angeles County

LOS ANGELES:- The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (Public Health) has confirmed 17 new deaths and 1,003 new cases of 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). Eight people who died were over the age of 65 years and five people who died were between the ages of 41 and 65 years old. Seven people had underlying health conditions including five people over the age of 65 years old and two people between the ages of 41 to 65 years old.

To date, Public Health has identified 73,018 positive cases of COVID-19 across all areas of LA County, and a total of 2,907 deaths. Ninety-three percent of people who died had underlying health conditions. Of those who died, information about race and ethnicity is available for 2,700 people (99 percent of the cases reported by Public Health); 41% of deaths occurred among Latino/Latinx residents, 29% among White residents, 17% among Asian residents, 11% among African American residents, less than 1% among Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander residents and 1% among residents identifying with other races. Upon further investigation, eight cases reported earlier were not LA County residents. There are 1,383 people who are currently hospitalized, 30% of these people are in the ICU and 20% are on ventilators. Testing capacity continues to increase in LA County, with testing results available for over 803,000 individuals and 8% of people testing positive.

Public Health continues to track health outcomes by race, ethnicity and income level data of people who have been tested, hospitalized and died from COVID-19. Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islanders have a death rate of 52 per 100,000, African Americans have a death rate of 34 per 100,000, Latinos/Latinxs have a death rate of 33 per 100,000, Asians have a death rate of 23 per 100,000, and Whites have a death rate of 18 per 100,000. People who live in areas with high rates of poverty have almost four times the rate of deaths for COVID-19 with 56 per 100,000 people, compared with communities with very low poverty levels who had a death rate of 15 per 100,000. Public Health continues collaboration with community, healthcare, and philanthropic partners to improve testing, connection to care and services, and in-language and culturally appropriate communications to the communities experiencing these inequitable outcomes.

“So many have lost loved ones and friends to COVID-19, and we mourn with you. You are in our thoughts and prayers every day,” said Barbara Ferrer, PhD, MPH, MEd, Director of Public Health. “For LA County to have a successful recovery journey, both businesses and residents must do their part to protect employees, customers and visitors. For businesses who are reopening, this means putting in place all of the required protocols for physical distancing and infection control before opening and ensuring that these protocols are followed by customers and employees every day.”
