The number of people hospitalized in Los Angeles for COVID-19 has dropped below 700 as of October 11, 2021, maintaining a month-long downward trend.

The number of people hospitalized in Los Angeles for COVID-19 has dropped below 700 as of October 11, 2021, maintaining a month-long downward trend.In Los Angeles County's daily COVID-19 statistics, the number of COVID-19-related hospitalizations has declined after witnessing a surge in cases in mid-August. The Los Angeles Public Health Department tweeted that 826 new COVID-19 cases and 656 hospitalizations had been reported on October 11. The data shows a month-long downward trend, dropping from 670 on October 10 to 656 on October 11.

Based on the statistics, NBC Los Angeles reports the number of patients in intensive care has remained at 202. The report said that the number of COVID-19 positive persons admitted to hospitals had decreased 36 times in the last 41 days, from a record peak of over 1,800 in summer.

On October 5, COVID-19 hospitalizations fell below 800 in Los Angeles County for the first time in about three months, according to the ABC7 news. The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health had said that infection rates among citizens and workers at skilled care homes have also decreased. Nearly 90 percent of people who died with COVID-19 had underlying health concerns, according to medical experts.

On October 3, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health news release reported 1,032 new cases of COVID-19 and ten deaths. However, the figures are probably due to reporting lags or delays over the weekend. There were 825 individuals in hospitals with COVID-19. Approximately 8,700,000 people were screened, with 16 percent of those who tested positive.

In September 2021, the number of hospitalized due to COVID-19 in Los Angeles County had dropped below 1,000 for the first time in about two months, reports Los Angeles Times.
