The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH) has confirmed 41 new deaths and 2,628 new cases of COVID-19 as of July 30. To date, the agency has identified 185,872 positive cases of COVID-19 across all areas of L.A. County, and a total of 4,552 deaths. In Beverly Hills, there have been 534 cases of COVID-19 and 9 deaths.
In a grim milestone, the LACDPH also reported the worst daily toll of the pandemic on July 29, with 91 deaths. However, the high number of new cases are due in part to a backlog of over 2,000 results received over the weekend. Health officials caution Angelenos to be mindful of health warnings, after distressing reports show a trend of increased hospitalizations among children. According to officials, new cases of the virus continue to be driven by people under the age of 41 years old. Since May, the majority of cases have occurred among people between the ages of 18 and 49 years old.
