LA 'On The Brink' Of New Shutdown Orders As Coronavirus Surges

·9 min read

LOS ANGELES, CA — Los Angeles County officials reported 2,848 new cases of COVID-19 and 11 more deaths on Sunday, with 53 percent of the new cases occurring in people under age 41.

The update came hours after Mayor Eric Garcetti warned that the city of Los Angeles is "on the brink" of issuing another stay-at-home order as coronavirus cases surge in the region, and he urged the public once again to guard against complacency amid the ongoing pandemic.

"I think a lot of people don't understand, mayors often have no control over what opens up and doesn't — that's either at a state or county level, and I do agree that (reopening businesses) happened too quickly," Garcetti told CNN on Sunday.

"It's not just what's opened and closed, it's also about what we do individually. It's about the people who are getting together outside of their households," he continued. "... They might think because they got a test two weeks ago it's OK, but it's not. This virus preys on our division, it preys when we get exhausted, it preys on us in those moments when we don't have a unified national front, or when we as individuals think, 'Oh, this ain't gonna be a big deal.' We have to be as vigilant right now as we were the first day."

Garcetti had said Friday that the city is teetering on the edge of a "red" coronavirus alert level, which would trigger stricter local stay-at- home orders and potentially more business closures.

The county has identified 155,887 positive cases of COVID-19 since the pandemic began, with 4,095 deaths.

As of Sunday, 2,216 people were hospitalized, 28 percent of whom are in the ICU and 18 percentare on ventilators.

Testing results are available for more than 1,515,000 people, with 10 percent testing positive. The cumulative positivity rate has increased from 9 percent to 10 percent. The majority of all cases have occurred in people under the age of 41, with 52 percent — or 77,000 people — younger than 41 infected with COVID- 19.
