The Orange County Health Care Agency said it has caught up with a case backlog after resolving state reporting issues.
The California Department of Public Health had been experiencing delays and glitches in the state’s electronic laboratory COVID-19 reporting system, known as the CalREDIE Electronic Laboratory Reporting system.
The system was fixed as of last week.
As of last Wednesday, the county’s case count is up to date, the OC agency said on its website, with 43,925 cumulative cases as of Monday.
There were 485 average daily cases reported in the week ending Monday, an increase of 25% from the week prior, likely due to the logging of new cases that were part of the backlog.
No new deaths were reported Monday, with 810 total deaths in the county. There were 86 new deaths in the past week, up slightly from 73 in the week prior.
