COVID Hospitalizations Climb in Los Angeles


The number of COVID-19-positive patients in Los Angeles County hospitals neared the 1,300 mark, continuing a nearly three-month upward trend, according to the latest data.

In late April, there were roughly 220 COVID-positive patients in county hospitals. As of Tuesday, there were 1,299, with 137 of them being treated in intensive care units, according to state figures. The 1,299 patients is the highest number since the tail end of a winter surge in late February.

Steadily rising hospital numbers over the past few weeks led to the county being moved into the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s “high” virus-activity level on Thursday. The move came when the average daily rate of COVID hospitalizations rose to 10.5 per 100,000 residents, surpassing the threshold of 10 per 100,000.
