Orange County coronavirus cases surge to nearly 4,000, as officials attribute the uptick to nursing homes and jails | KTLA
Coronavirus cases in Orange County continue to surge with 229 new cases reported Thursday, bringing the countywide total to 3,968.
The number of positive cases in the county increased over the last two weeks, as did people becoming seriously ill and hospitalized, O.C. Health Care Agency’s new director Dr. Clayton Chau said Thursday during a news briefing. However, although testing is being ramped up, the increase in cases was not attributed to the uptick in tests conducted, he said.
