LA County reports 46 more COVID-related deaths, 2,264 new cases


Los Angeles County reported another 46 COVID-19-related deaths over a three day period ending Monday, Jan. 23, along with more than 2,200 new infections.

The 46 new deaths — 20 reported Saturday, 16 on Sunday and 10 on Monday — lifted the county’s overall death toll to 35,147.

The county Department of Public Health reported 1,134 new COVID infections on Saturday, 688 on Sunday and 442 on Monday for a total of 2,264. The county does not release case numbers on weekends.

Sunday and Monday infection numbers are typically believed to be artificially low due to delays in reporting over the weekend. Overall case numbers are also believed to be undercounts in general, due to most people relying on at-home tests without the reporting the results, and others not testing at all.

The new numbers gave the county a cumulative official case total of 3,668,756 as of Monday.

The seven-day average daily rate of people testing positive for the virus was 4% as of Monday, down from 5.2% a week ago.

Updated virus-related hospitalization numbers were not immediately available. As of Saturday, there were 830 COVID-positive patients in county hospitals, according to state figures. Of those patients, 95 were being treated in intensive care.

Los Angeles County moved to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s “low” virus-activity category last week, thanks to falling case rates and hospital admission numbers.
