COVID-19 Testing Update

There were 152 average daily coronavirus cases for the week ending June 4, up from 135 for the week ending May 28, and from 120 for the prior week.

Testing figures have decreased in the past week, with 3,061 tests conducted each day on average compared with 3,306 the week prior.

The Orange County Health Care Agency said testing figures can be volatile, and decreases or fluctuations in the number of people tested is largely a result of demand, and whether residents are choosing to get tested or not.

The county is more closely examining case figures and hospitalizations; the latter has increased to 280 hospitalizations for the week ending June 2, the last day data was available, from 266 the prior week, while ICU patients have increased to 129 from 117.

The cities with the highest cases per capita are Los Alamitos with 73 cases per 10,000 residents; Santa Ana with 39; and Anaheim with 33.

There were seven new deaths reported Thursday, including six senior living residents, bringing the total to 165 deaths, including 76 senior living residents and no jail inmates.

There have been 6,783 cases to date in the county, nearly 17% of which have come from senior living facilities and Orange County jails.
