35 COVID-19 Infections Confirmed in WeHo, with 47 in Nearby Melrose

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (Public Health) has confirmed nine new deaths and 421 new cases of 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) as of noon today, bring the

total number of cases to 1,216. Of those, 253 people have been hospitalized and 21 have died.

There were 35 cases reported from West Hollywood, up from 31 on Wednesday. That means there has been one confirmed COVID-19 infection for each 1,053 residents. The number of confirmed cases in the Melrose neighborhood, which is just south of West Hollywood, increased dramatically, going from 33 reported on Wednesday to 47 today. Melrose now is the area with the most confirmed infections in Los Angeles County.

The number of cases in Brentwood, which earlier had tied with West Hollywood in having the largest number of confirmed cases in L.A. County also increased today to 42 from the 34 confirmed on Wednesday.

There also were changes in the count in other cities and neighborhoods near West Hollywood. The number of infections in Beverly Hills rose from 13 to 15 as of noon today. Culver City’s infection count increased from six yesterday to eight today. Infections in Hollywood grew from 19 confirmed on Wednesday to 27 today.

People are reminded that they should practice social distancing because when someone with COVID-19 coughs or sneezes the small droplets from their nose or mouth can travel three to six feet. People can get infected if they breathe in these droplets, or the droplets land on their eyes, nose, or mouth. Although people who are sick with COVID-19 are the most infectious, it is possible that some people may spread the virus before they start to feel unwell.

It is also possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching his or her own mouth, nose, or eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.

Residents with questions about the COVID-19 pandemic and who are looking for resources to deal with it can find answers on the City of West Hollywood’s website. Here is a list of links to sections about particular issues:

SCARY – almost 1 in 1000 of us and growing – WE MUST to contain our own spread in residential buildings. The city should get masks for everybody. Instead yell at me for free ones – to any senior, disabled, or person in affordable housing . Visit http://www.wehowish.org for updates .

Thanks for the numbers. Sadly some of the lowest numbers do not accurately reflect the infection rate in those communities but the lack of medical resources for low income cities.
