California was one of seven states that reported the highest number of hospitalizations since the pandemic began, according to the Washington Post on Tuesday. The others included Texas, Arizona, Arkansas, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.
In Southern California, the number of patients in the hospital is growing fastest. However, some districts in the Central Valley and Bay Area were only rarely affected by the highest total number of COVID-19 hospitalizations.
After an increase in cases is reported, experts generally review whether there is an increase in hospital admissions to confirm an outbreak, as opposed to only increased cases due to increased testing. The weekly number of tests in LA County is 87,000. This is an eight-week low from a high of 117,000 five weeks ago.
Los Angeles County Health Department - the largest in the state - announced Tuesday for the fourth time in a week that over 2,000 new COVID-19 cases have occurred in the region. This is a daily mark that cannot be seen even at the peak of the virus's spread. The 24-hour total reported on Tuesday was 2,364.
The increase in hospital stays and the rate of spread was even more worrying.
From the Ministry of Health press release:
Public health continues to evaluate key recovery indicators to understand how COVID-19 affects communities and is able to treat people who may become seriously ill. Public health has seen a slight increase in hospital admissions and the 7-day average daily positive rate. There are currently 1,515 people in the hospital, 27% of these people are in the intensive care unit and 18% are ventilated. Although this number is significantly lower than the peak values of over 1900 people hospitalized daily for COVID-19, there have been more than 1350 to 1450 daily hospitalizations in the past few weeks. And while the cumulative positivity rate remains at 8%, the 7-day average of the daily positivity rate has risen to 8.8%.
