Two New Confirmed COVID-19 Infections in WeHo; 2,136 in L.A. County

The number of novel coronavirus infections in West Hollywood increased from 50 reported Saturday to 52 as of today, meaning that one of every 709 residents of West Hollywood has been confirmed to be infected with COVID-19. That is the highest rate per capita of any city or community in Los Angeles County.

There were 2,136 confirmed infections across all of Los Angeles County, an 18% increase from Saturday’s

count. The number of deaths remained at 37. The City of Los Angeles had 1,020 cases.

In an announcement of the number of confirmed infections, the Health Department said that “five of the six deaths reported as of Saturday occurred in people over the age of 60, and one death was reported for an individual between 50 – 60 years old. Two of these individuals, including the person between 50-60 years old, did not have any reported underlying health conditions. Additional information regarding some of the new cases is pending further investigation.”

As of noon today, the number of infections in the Melrose neighborhood on the southern border of West Hollywood had not increase from the 56 confirmed infections yesterday.

The number of confirmed infections in other adjacent cities and neighborhoods as of today is:

  • Beverly Hills. Twenty four, up from 21 on Saturday.
  • Culver City. Nine, up from seven on Friday
  • Hollywood. Forty four, up from 38 on Thursday.

In its latest list of cities and neighborhoods, the Health Department has included those where no infections have been confirmed.

As always, people are reminded that they should practice social distancing – standing six feet away from others who may cough or sneeze and release droplets infected COVID-19. 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.

“If you are mildly sick, stay home for at least seven days and until 72 hours after being fever and symptom free,” the Health Department advises. “Call your doctor if you are concerned and/or your symptoms worsen. Individuals who are elderly, have underlying health conditions or pregnant should consider contacting their providers earlier when they are sick.”

Everybody arrives at the impact of a crisis at different times, criticizing how they got there is really not important, if we can criticize the critics we can also provide critical thinking, also know as solutions. It is best to be available to our neighbors and lookout for all people in the Community. It would be a great use of downtime if the City would put together a Crisis Team to address the citizens concerns and set us up for success, for when the next Crisis manifests. This would be a solution that any reasonable person could agree Satisfies all… Read more »
