COVID-19 Numbers Continue to Rise in West Hollywood

COVID-19 continues to surge in West Hollywood and the entire United States as the third wave of the coronavirus pandemic roars on.

In the past week, West Hollywood has seen 74 new cases and two more deaths reported. That brings the city to a cumulative total of 770 cases since the pandemic began in March and seven deaths.

Those are some sobering figures to consider especially since the numbers are expected to rise in the coming weeks. State and county officials fear that people gathering together for Thanksgiving will spark even greater spread of the virus.

Officials urged people to avoid large gatherings at Thanksgiving and to rethink travel plans. For those who do choose to travel, state officials have issued an advisory recommending people quarantine for 14 days upon return to the state.

Los Angeles County saw 15,169 new cases in the past week, for a daily average of 2,167 new cases a day.

People really aren’t taking this seriously enough right now. The Grove has been packed to holiday season levels every day. People are having large gatherings in their homes. Businesses are ignoring simple policies like no contact rules, hand washing, and temperature checks. In the meantime, more people are dieing at anytime during the pandemic. Look, I get it. As a business owner and general human being, no one is perfect. But we need to try harder and help one another out. If we don’t we will have to go back into lockdown and many more people will die.

A vaccine will come too late for many, unfortunately. Please continue doing your part to keep yourself and others safe until then!

It’s been a devastating week:

40% increase in West Hollywood’s total death toll, from 5 to 7 thus far.

10.5% increase in total cases in West Hollywood from 700 to 774.

In this week alone, per the U.S. COVID Tracking Project:

1 in 378 Americans tested positive.
(875,401 new cases)

41% increase in new weekly cases.

20% increase in hospitalizations.

23% increase in deaths.

These numbers should give everyone pause.
