They involved a man in his late-80s, a woman in her late-80s and a man in his 90s.,Derderian added that Pasadena Public Health Department officials had expected case numbers to increase from the single-digits seen in recent days as more people are able to get coronavirus tests following the Labor Day holiday weekend.She pointed to declining hospitalization rates as a positive sign.Huntington Hospital reported treating 22 COVID-19 patients on Friday. Five tests were pending.With smoke and ash from nearby wildfires creating horrendous air quality, Derderian urged everyone to “stay inside as much as possible, even if you are a healthy individual.”Runners exercising at the Rose Bowl loop on Friday told officials they thought their COVID-19 masks would protect them from smoke as well, according to Derderian. That is not the case.The tiny and hazardous particles generated by a wildfire can easily penetrate cloth coverings, Derderian said. Wearing a face mask should not lull people into a “false sense of security” whenIt comes to smoke.Officials at the county level reported 1,115 new detected infections and 43 additional deaths, bringing the county totals to 252,066 COVID-19 cases and cases and 6,171 fatalities.The daily number of hospitalizations throughout the county continued a steady decline, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health said in a written statement.Officials reported 889 patients were being treated at county facilities, with 33% of them in intensive care units.“Similar to the numbers seen in early April, daily hospitalizations have dropped back to an average of under 1,000 hospitalizations a day,” according to the county statement.Health officials also noted three new cases of the COVID-19-related illness MIS-C in children in L.A. County, bringing the total to 34. No fatalities have been reported from MIS-C in the county.L.A. County Director of Public Health Barbara Ferrer used the occasion of the 19th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks to pay homage to those who have died from the pandemic, as well as those fighting to stop it.“Today, as we remember the lives lost on September 11, 2001 and extend our gratitude to all the first responders for their courage and service, we also take a solemn pause to pay respect to the 6,171 people who lost their lives to COVID-19 in L.A. County and reflect on our heroic healthcare workers that have responded selflessly to the COVID-19 pandemic,” she said.“Our Country came together after 9/11 and forged a new path forward; today, we have also been asked to come together and learn how to live through the COVID-19 pandemic. We give thanks to all who helped us get through the devastation brought by 9/11, and to all who are helping us get through COVID-19,” Ferrer said.The county’s overall positivity rate remained at 10%, with more than 2.4 million tests administered, officials said.The California Department of Public Health announced 3,326 new infections and 111 new deaths on Friday.
