    COVID-19 Numbers Still Concerning, But Improving, LA Health Official Says

    Rising coronavirus cases and fatalities remain concerning — with four dozen more deaths confirmed Thursday — but there are signs Los Angeles County is beginning to turn the corner in efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19, according to the county’s top health officer.

    “At least this week, we’re still seeing concerning data,” county health officer Dr. Muntu Davis told reporters in an online briefing. “There are still high case counts, hospitalizations have exceeded 2,200 people for at least the last four days in a row and tragically people are still dying from COVID-19. But I hope this week marks a turning point, and that we’ll start to see the results of our collective actions to slow the spread of COVID-19.

    “We’re already seeing more positive data,” he said. “Our daily positivity rate remains flat at or just below 8.5% — again, that’s a seven-day average. And while this rate is still higher than what we’d like it to be, it offers some evidence we may be returning to slowing the spread and that our efforts and sacrifices are making a difference.”
