It was the largest number of new infections reported in a single day since March 3, when 32 cases of the virus were detected.But the number of COVID-19 patients at Huntington Hospital continues its steady plummet, reaching 18 on Thursday, officials said. Five of the patients were being treated in intensive care units.City data showed 43,877 Pasadenans, or 37.2% of the population over 16 years old, had received at least one vaccine dose, and 25,056 more were listed as fully vaccinated.The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health announced 933 new infections and 88 additional deaths, raising the county’s pandemic totals to 1,212,586 known infections and 22,664 fatalities.The daily test positivity rate for Los Angeles County was recorded at 1.8%, lower than the statewide rate of 2%, according to public health records.Total COVID-19 hospitalizations in the county numbered 861, with 26% of the patients being treated in ICUs, according to county officials.With the region now operating under loosened restrictions after entering the state’s “red” tier on Monday, L.A. County Director of Public Health Barbara Ferrer urged continued vigilance against the virus.“The success of the county’s recovery and the safety of at-risk residents and workers depends on businesses and residents closely following the rules. If our COVID-19 transmission decreases, lives are saved, and we will be allowed to continue to open more businesses and ease activity-specific restrictions in the future,” she said.“We all experienced what happens when public health safety measures are not followed closely,” Ferrer continued. “We have to avoid increases that can easily lead to more people suffering and take us backward on our recovery journey. As more people are vaccinated, universal cooperation with safety measures is what will keep us moving forward with our recovery journey.”At the state level, the California Department of Public Health reported 3,038 new infections and 2018 new deaths on Thursday, bringing the state’s totals to 3,535,534 COVID-19 cases and 55,795 deaths.As of Thursday, L.A. County accounted for 34% of California’s COVID-19 infections and 41% of the state’s fatalities. Subscribelast_img read more
