Riverside County Sees Decrease In COVID-19 Hospitalizations
Riverside County is seeing a drop in the number of people hospitalized with coronavirus.
On Friday, county officials reported 361 coronavirus patients in the region’s hospitals, down from 381 the day before — and a dramatic drop from earlier this year.
John Welsh, a Riverside County spokesperson, still advised caution.
“When we're trending in the right direction, everybody gets excited,” he said. “But we do believe that with the number of people in our county getting the vaccine, we hope to increase the trend of going in the right direction.”
Riverside County reported 265 newly confirmed coronavirus cases and 18 additional deaths on Saturday.
Meanwhile, in L.A. County, public health officials reported 1,064 new cases of coronavirus on Sunday, and 107 deaths from the virus. There are currently 1,661 people hospitalized with COVID-19, and 32% of them are in the ICU.
