The county has not seen a surge in hospitalizations or deaths. Barbara Ferrer, director of the Los Angeles County Department of Health, pointed out that the county’s new cases are mainly among young people who are unlikely to be seriously ill or require hospitalization.
Despite the increase in the number of daily cases and the positive rate, the county reported on Wednesday that the overall transmission rate has fallen, or the average number of COVID-19 patients infected with the virus has fallen. As of Wednesday, the exchange rate was 0.95, down from 1.04 a week ago. Health officials say that keeping the ratio below 1.0 is essential to ensure that cases are reduced. If the number is greater than 1.0, the number of cases is expected to increase. However, there is usually a margin of error of approximately 0.03 on both sides of the quoted figures.
Ferrer said on Monday that the recent surge in cases was “the result of a decision we made together two to three weeks ago. And the actions we take today will affect whether we can continue our journey of recovery, or if we delay Even regress. We really need to slow down the transmission speed to achieve economic recovery.”

Ferrer said: “Remind that the people participating in the celebration should keep close contact with other people. People who don’t wear masks and are not alienated may have been exposed to COVID-19.” Measures: Keep away from others as much as possible, perform tests and monitor your symptoms.
She said: “If you know you are in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, please isolate for the entire 14 days, even if your test result is negative.”
