Orange County has 1,400 COVID-19 deaths




The total number of COVID-19-related deaths in Orange County on Friday topped 1,400, according to figures reported by the Orange County Health Care Agency.

The agency reported 10 new deaths on Friday, seven of them in people in skilled nursing facilities and two in assisted living. One was a resident not living in an institution. 151 new cases were also reported, bringing the total number of cases from PCR testing to 56,587. This does not include positive antigen tests, which now stand at 1,767.

There are currently 170 hospitalized cases, 66 of them in intensive care units. It is estimated that approximately 50,632 have recovered.

The county is currently still in the red and substantial transmission level, where it has remained since September 8.

County health official Dr Clayton Chau on Thursday advised residents to safely celebrate the upcoming holidays at a press conference. This goes in the direction of state officials who on Tuesday advised against the sleight of hand but refrained from banning the activity this Halloween, a Saturday this year.

State also issued guidelines on October 9, before the holidays, which ban gatherings between more than three households and encourage residents who choose to socialize with other families to do so in a cohesive group to reduce the risk of transmission.

As we move into this holiday season, we will have the potential to impact our movement along the level system if we don’t safely celebrate as much as possible, Chau said.

The county currently has a daily rate of positive cases per 100,000 of 4.6. Officials reported that the current test positivity rate is 3.5%. To take it to the next level, the county will need to lower its daily positive case rate to between 1 and 3.9 cases per 100,000 and keep its test positivity between 2% and 4.9% for two weeks.
