There were 3,322 new confirmed cases of coronavirus and 18 new deaths reported Sunday in Los Angeles, according to a press release from the LA County Department of Public Health.
This is second highest daily case count reported in the last week. The agency reported 4,015 new cases on July 7, the largest single day case count increase, which they attributed to a backlog of test results.
There are currently 2,093 people hospitalized with 26% being confirmed cases of Covid-19 in the ICU and 19% confirmed cases on ventilators, the release said.
"This remains substantially higher than the 1,350 to 1,450 daily hospitalizations seen four weeks ago," the release said.
