Coronavirus Cases Surge Past 25,000 In LA County; 1,229 Deaths

Nick Garber

LOS ANGELES, CA — The number of coronavirus cases in Los Angeles County surged past 25,000 Sunday as officials announced another 791 confirmed cases, along with 21 more deaths.

There are now 25,662 cases of COVID-19 and 1,229 deaths related to the disease caused by the virus, according to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health.

"The people lost to COVID-19 are mourned by all of us in L.A. County, and to their loved ones, we wish you peace and healing," Barbara Ferrer, the county's public health director, said Sunday.

As has been the case throughout the pandemic, 92% of the people who died from the virus had underlying health conditions, and the virus continued to have a slightly disproportionate impact on communities of color.

For the 1,121 deaths for which data was available, 38% were Latinx, 29% white, 19% Asian, 13% black and 1% Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander, according to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health.

The confirmed cases include 745 in Long Beach and 417 in Pasadena, which have their own health departments.

Los Angeles County continues to represent about half of the cases and deaths across the state. Officials in Sacramento reported Saturday that the state had 53,616 cases and 2,215 deaths.

Meanwhile, all eyes were are on Southern California beaches heading into the weekend, with Gov. Gavin Newsom locking down Orange County specifically after mass crowds turned out last week.

As of Saturday, officials' worst fears seemed not to materialize, with beaches remaining mostly empty save for a few scattered surfers and clusters of protestors dotting the sands along Orange County's coastline.

No citations were reported in Huntington Beach as of early Saturday afternoon, according to officials.

In Los Angeles County, Ferrer said there have now been 182 confirmed coronavirus cases among the homeless population, the majority of them occurring among people who were housed at the Union Rescue Mission on downtown L.A.'s Skid Row, where an outbreak was confirmed in mid-April.

She also said there have been 106 known instances of pregnant women who tested positive. According to Ferrer, 26 of those women have completed their pregnancies and successfully gave birth.

She said the county is investigating confirmed or suspected cases at 316 institutional settings, including nursing homes, skilled nursing facilities, assisted living facilities, shelters, jails and prisons.

There have been a total of 5,658 cases at such institutional settings, and 564 residents have died, representing 48% of all COVID-19 deaths in the county. The majority of people who have died in institutional settings lived in skilled nursing facilities, Ferrer said.

She said there have been 526 cases in federal prisons, the vast majority at the Terminal Island prison in San Pedro, where five inmates have died.
