More than Term
Tuesday’s COVID-19 numbers represented an increase in cases from the 1,949 confirmed cases Friday, a number that Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti called “hopeful signs that reflect our resilience.” There were 2,039 new infections reported on Monday.
The new numbers also come a day after California Governor Gavin Newsom identified neighboring Imperial County as the new COVD-19 hot spot. On Monday, Newsom shared that the Central Valley is a major new area of concern, announcing a $ 52 million investment to increase testing, tracing, and health care support in the region.
