Deadly COVID-19 Case Numbers Soar In LA: Officials Sound 'Alarm'

Deadly COVID-19 Case Numbers Soar In LA: Officials Sound 'Alarm'”

The order would also mandate a curfew from 10 p.m.to 6 a.m., exempting only essential workers.

There have been a total of 8,975 new cases reported over the last two days, said the release, adding that the county is experiencing "a unsafe acceleration of cases that is increasing at a higher rate than the July surge".

Residents of Yolo County and all other counties in the state's purple tier will be subject to a curfew beginning Saturday and lasting through December 21. The weekly average of daily COVID-19 cases was 1,171 on November 1, and by November 14, it had more than doubled to 2,406, according to county data.

The statewide spike comes as the US surpassed 250,000 COVID-19 fatalities - the highest documented pandemic death toll of any nation.

He also bashed notions that the virus is less unsafe than the flu, noting that an estimated 3,133 people died during the 2019-2020 flu season in the county.

As of Thursday, there were 1,238 people hospitalized, continuing what is now a 10-day string of increases. Two senior administration officials told CBS News that doctors believe that in just a week, the USA may see 1,500 deaths a day.

Davis didn't cite Al Fresco dining as a cause of the virus' surge, but she did advise against eating out in-person."While restaurants remain open for outdoor dining at limited capacity is far as safer to order from your favorite restaurant for pickup or delivery", she said.

"We know from our stay at home order this spring, which flattened the curve in California, that reducing the movement and mixing of individuals dramatically decreases COVID-19 spread, hospitalizations and deaths", said Ghaly.

The county previously issued guidance limiting gatherings to three households, but there was no numerical limit on attendees.

If the five-day average of COVID-19 cases hits 4,000 or more, or hospitalizations increase to more than 1,750 a day, the county will shut down all outdoor and indoor dining.

Unlike all other COVID-19 statistics, the county's rate of coronavirus-related deaths has not yet surged upward.

The state has crossed the 10,000-case threshold four times since last Thursday, including each of the last three days. But given increasing hospital numbers, the number of fatalities is also expected to eventually rise.

"Clearly, we are at a crossroads in the COVID-19 pandemic again", said Dr. Christina Ghaly, the county's director of health services, at a briefing.

"While the steep increase in hospitalizations has only been going on for one week, we can not ignore the facts", Ghaly said.

Testing results for almost 3,473,000 individuals tested thus far showed an average of 9% of all people testing positive.
