As COVID-19 Hospitalizations Decrease, Public Health Continues to Monitor for MIS-C - 47 New Deaths and 1,493 New Cases of Confirmed COVID-19 in Los Angeles County

As COVID-19 hospitalizations continues to decline, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (Public Health) reports three additional cases of multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C). This brings the total cases of MIS-C in L.A. County to 31 children.

All of the 31 children with MIS-C in L.A. County were hospitalized and nearly half of the children treated in the ICU. Twenty-six percent of these cases were between the ages of 0 and 5 years old, 39% were between the ages of 6 and 12 years old, and 35% were between the ages of 13 and 20 years old. Latino/Latinx children continue to make up the majority of cases accounting for 71% of all cases. There continues to be no reported deaths in children with MIS-C in LA County.

Parents and guardians are urged to contact their child's primary care provider if they believe their child is displaying MIS-C symptoms, - inflamed body parts, including the heart, lungs, kidneys, brain, skin, eyes, or gastrointestinal organs. If they do not have a primary care provider, dial 2-1-1 and L.A. County will help connect them to one.

The County continues to see significant reductions in the number of people positive for COVID-19 that are hospitalized. Currently, there are 992 people who are confirmed cases currently hospitalized and 30% of these people are in the ICU. This is more than a 50% decrease from the over 2,000 COVID-19 patients hospitalized in early August.

Today, Public Health confirms 47 new deaths and 1,493 new cases of COVID-19. To date, Public Health has identified 246,407 positive cases of COVID-19 across all areas of L.A. County, and a total of 5,977 deaths.

"Every day we think of all the many families experiencing the profound loss of losing a loved one to COVID-19 and send our deepest sympathies," said Barbara Ferrer, PhD, MPH, MEd, Director of Public Health. "We have an opportunity this holiday weekend to change the trajectory of the virus in L.A. County. Our last two summer holidays both led to increases in cases, hospitalizations and deaths. I believe it is possible to celebrate Labor Day without repeating our last failures if everyone understands how much depends on individual actions we each will take. Please have fun without exposing others or yourself to COVID-19. This is not the time or the place for parties or gatherings. We will all win if we each do our part."

Of the 47 new deaths reported today, 14 people that passed away (excluding Long Beach and Pasadena) were over the age of 80 years old, 16 people who died were between the ages of 65 and 79 years old, 11 people who died were between the ages of 50 and 64 years old, and four people who died were between the ages of 30 and 49 years old. Twenty-nine people had underlying health conditions including nine people over the age of 80 years old, 10 people between the ages of 65 and 79 years old, six people between the ages of 50 and 64 years old, and four people between the ages of 30 and 49 years old. One death was reported by the City of Long Beach and one death was reported by the City of Pasadena.

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 5,622 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. Upon further investigation, 85 cases and two deaths reported earlier were not LA County residents.

Testing results are available for more than 2,347,000 individuals with 10% of all people testing positive.
