Public Health Reports 27 New Deaths and 1,339 New Cases of Confirmed COVID-19 in Los Angeles County

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (Public Health) has confirmed 27 new deaths and 1,339 new cases of COVID-19.

To date, Public Health has identified 239,756 positive cases of COVID-19 across all areas of L.A. County, and a total of 5,759 deaths. Upon further investigation, 41 cases reported earlier were not LA County residents.

There are 1,116 confirmed cases currently hospitalized and 32% of these people are confirmed cases in the ICU. Daily hospitalizations numbers continue to decline, with a 50% decrease from the high number of 2,200 daily hospitalizations seen in mid-July.

"We extend our condolences to all who are grieving the loss of a loved one to COVID-19, and may peace and comfort find you during this difficult time," said Barbara Ferrer, PhD, MPH, MEd, Director of Public Health. “In order for our County to move through the State's tier structure which will allow us to reopen more businesses, we must slow the COVID-19 transmission rates we are seeing. Currently, we are in Tier 1 with widespread community transmission and an average of about 13 new cases a day per 100,000 residents. This tier carries the most restrictions for the re-opening of many sectors. To demonstrate reduced spread of the virus and move to Tier 2, we need to reduce our transmission rate to 7 new cases a day per 100,000 residents. The evidence is very clear 7 months into the pandemic that to see fewer cases, we have to all work together and not infect each other: we do this by wearing our face coverings when we are out of our homes, avoiding gatherings and crowded spaces, getting tested if we are sick or have been exposed, and following sensible public health directives at every work site. For everyone throwing or attending parties, hanging out in crowded spaces, or insisting that the public health rules don’t apply to you or your business, your actions make it much more likely that we remain in Tier 1 for many weeks to come; this makes it harder for our children to get back to school and for many adults to get back to work.”

Of the 27 new deaths reported today, nine people that passed away (excluding Long Beach and Pasadena) were over the age of 80 years old, six people who died were between the ages of 65 and 79 years old, six people who died were between the ages of 50 and 64 years old, and three people who died were between the ages of 30 and 49 years old. Seventeen people had underlying health conditions including six people over the age of 80 years old, five people between the ages of 65 and 79 years old, four people between the ages of 50 and 64, and two people between the ages of 30 and 49 years old. Three deaths were reported by the City of Long Beach.

Ninety-three 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 5,423 people (99 percent of the cases reported by Public Health); 51% of deaths occurred among Latino/Latinx residents, 24% among White residents, 15% among Asian residents, 10% 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 more than 2,272,000 individuals with 10% of all people testing positive.

Public Health has a dedicated call line for any person with a positive lab result. If you are positive for COVID-19 and have not yet connected with a public health specialist, the department urges you to call 1-833-540-0473 to connect with a public health specialist who can provide information about services and support. Residents who do not have COVID-19 should continue to call 211 for resources or more information.
