Coronavirus cases spike in L.A. County

Sunday, 08 Nov, 2020

The state is imminently poised to cross 50,000 cases, with the total hovering Saturday at 49,587 cases since the pandemic began.

But it is a more fair comparison from now to September 6 - when the state crossed 100,000 confirmed cases.

There have been two new COVID-19-related deaths, for a total of 275 deaths in British Columbia. The county now allows small outdoor gatherings with three or fewer households that last no longer than two hours.

"Our public health capacity has stretched to meet community needs with this rise in cases and outbreaks but is not infinite", she writes.

Probable cases are close contacts of lab-confirmed cases with COVID-19 symptoms.

Adrienne Byrne, the director of the Sedgwick County Health Department, said the "why" in the surge of cases is unknown.

There are 74 new positive COVID-19 cases in Saline County to report since the last update on Wednesday, November 4.

Since the pandemic arrived in Minnesota in March, the state has reported 174,954 positive cases, 11,394 hospitalizations and 2,625 deaths from COVID-19.

Malcolm said the alarming case growth in the past week continues to be fueled by smaller interactions and decisions, and raises questions about whether any new restrictions would be effective. The cases in the state Friday included 108,738 confirmed cases, up 1,446 from Thursday, and 10,492 probable cases, up 424 from Thursday.

In Friday's statement, the province said it is asking businesses, in the Lower Mainland in particular, to review safety practices to avoid closures by health officials.

At least 729 people in OR have now died from the coronavirus. I ask all Arkansans to take the virus seriously & to take precautions.

Minnesota health officials and hospitals statewide are bracing for more patients, since they are a lagging indicator that usually follows case growth.
