With more than 1,000 cases added in one day, there are now 9,191 people in California with coronavirus and 203 have died as a result of Covid-19, according to a release from the California Department of Public Health.
Nearly 2,000 people in California are hospitalized, according to Gov. Gavin Newsom.
Of those, 816 people are in intensive care units. Despite the 5.4% increase in the past day, Newsom says those numbers are well within California’s current capacity to treat.
More than 92,400 people in California have been tested, but results for at least 59,500 are still pending, the state health department says.
Cases in Los Angeles alone have climbed to over 4,000.
There are 4,045 people who have been infected with coronavirus in Los Angeles County and a total of 78 deaths, according to Health Director Barbara Ferrer.
Roughly two-thirds of those hospitalized with coronavirus have been otherwise healthy individuals with no underlying health conditions. Ferrer emphasized that they are seeing people suffering very serious illness due to the coronavirus.
Announcing 534 new cases on Thursday, Ferrer points out that more than 1,000 cases have come in just the past two days.
