COVID-19 Confirmed Infections Increase to 125 in West Hollywood

As of noon today, 125 West Hollywood residents have been confirmed as infected with the COVID-19 virus, an increase of five from yesterday’s count. That means one of every 295 residents has been diagnosed as infected

In its daily announcement of infections, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health confirmed 1,318 new cases countywide, bringing the total to 16,435. The Health Department reports 66 new deaths associated with the virus today. So far, a total 729 deaths have been confirmed.

Forty-eight people who died were over the age of 65. Thirteen people who died were between the ages of 41 and 65, and two people who died were between the ages of 18 and 40. Forty-nine people had underlying health conditions including 38 people over the age of 65, nine people between the ages of 41 and 65 and two people between the ages of 18 and 40.

The Health Department reports that it continues to receive a backlog of test results. “In an effort to expand testing capacity, many new labs are responding to the emergency and Public Health is working with them to ensure that they have the proper reporting systems in place,” says its announcement of the latest count. “Until this reporting issue is resolved, there may be periodic increases in positive cases and total cases due to unevenness in daily reporting.”

Testing capacity continues to increase in Los Angeles County, with testing results available for almost 91,000 individuals and 15% of people testing positive. While today’s count shows that two-tenths of one percent of county residents are infected, a recent study by the Health Department with the University of Southern California suggests that 2.8% to 5.6% of the county’s adult population has that antibody to the virus — which means that 221,000 to 442,000 may have had the infection.

There were 57 infections in the Crestview neighborhood, an increase of two from yesterday’s 55, meaning that 501.41 per 100,000 residents there have been infected. Crestview is the second most highly infected neighborhood.

The Carthay neighborhood in Los Angeles, with 56 infections as of today ranks third, with 389.87 infections per 100,000 residents. Rancho Dominguez had no increase in its previously confirmed 10 infections, which equals 375.8 per 100,000 residents and makes it the fourth most highly infected area.
