The South Bay now has 525 confirmed COVID-19 cases, including 133 in the Beach Cities, according to the Los Angeles County Public Health Department’s newest release of data. 

Carson has the most cases confirmed in the South Bay, with 93. Torrance has 92 cases, Redondo Beach 67, and Manhattan Beach 48. The three Beach Cities have a combined 133 cases. Overall, LA County has 6,360 confirmed cases, and 147 deaths. Countywide, over 900 people are currently hospitalized with COVID-19; 1,366 have been hospitalized in total since the pandemic arrived in LA County. 

In number of confirmed COVID-19 cases, LA County would rank 20th in the world if the county were a nation, just after Sweden and ahead of Russia. 

LA County Public Health director Dr. Barbara Ferrer said that although the new numbers don’t show a dramatic daily increase of the kinds seen in New York and Italy, the danger is still very much present that LA County could experience a dramatic increase in both confirmed COVID-19 cases and deaths in the next one to two weeks. 

“Our numbers are large,” Ferrer said. “We have over 6,000 confirmed cases. We estimate there is a whole lot of people who are asymptomatic at this point —  even if that’s 20 percent of folks who may be positive for COVID-19, who are asymptomatic, not being tested, they may be able to infect others. That’s a significant increase from where we were last week.” 

A week ago, on March 30, LA County had 2,474 confirmed cases and 44 deaths. Ferrer said that although LA County’s rate of increase has not reached the rate of so-called hotspots like New York City —  which experienced a doubling of new cases in less than three days in late March — the sheer number of cases still threatens a turn towards exponential spikes. 

“Although it’s just a doubling, in terms of our numbers, the doubling is a lot of people,” Ferrer said. “And if every one of these 6,000 people is capable of infecting two to three other people, you can see why we are worried that without everyone taking every possible precaution, our numbers could start skyrocketing, and that is one thing we don’t want to see happen.” 

The concern is that thousands of people might have the virus but be largely without symptoms and infecting others, Ferrer said. She urged everyone to wear scarfs or bandannas, which do not prevent infection but are effective in preventing those already infected from spreading the virus. She stressed that the next two weeks are critical, both in terms of stopping the virus’s spread, but also for those who are most vulnerable to its health impacts. 

“It is really is time for those people who may not have taken this seriously before to understand the seriousness of what is going on in our community —  the seriousness of living through a pandemic,” Ferrer said. “And particularly for those at high-risk, this would be the week to stay home, and maybe next week as well, as cases continue to mount.” 

Ferrer said that the recent decline in new cases —  711 were reported Saturday, 663 on Sunday, and 420 new cases Monday —  is less indicative of a “flattening of the curve” and more a reflection of fewer test results being processed over the weekend. Thus far, 32,000 people have been tested in LA County. At present, only people who are symptomatic and have a physician’s recommendation can be tested. Officials hope to ramp up testing in the next week, which will also likely dramatically increase the numbers of identified positive cases. 

“I would anticipate that we are going to see a lot more cases this week, and next week,” Ferrer said. 

Dr. Christina Ghaly, who oversees the county’s Department of Health Services, said there are 318 available intensive care beds countywide. She described this as “a critical week in helping to understand what the curve and the trajectory of this pandemic will be.”

*These numbers are subject to change based on further investigation. **– means that case numbers are suppressed (between 1 and 4 cases in communities <25,000 people). ***Rate is crude and is per 100,000. This represents the number of cases per 100,000 people and allows for the proportional comparison of cities of different sizes.
