Coronavirus: Orange County reported 227 new cases and 4 new deaths as of Sept. 19 – OCRegister

The Orange County Health Care Agency reported 227 new cases of the coronavirus on Saturday, Sept. 19, increasing the cumulative total to 51,873 cases.

There were four new deaths reported in Orange County on Saturday, raising the death total to 1,127. The data on deaths in the county is compiled from death certificates or gathered through the course of case investigations and can take weeks to process, officials say.

The health care agency reported the local rate at which tests are coming back positive for coronavirus was 3.9% on Wednesday, Sept. 16, within the range the state has set for counties in its red (substantial virus threat) tier to move to the orange (moderate threat) tier.

Orange County has to spend three weeks in the red tier, or until Sept. 29, before it could possibly drop down a level, if trends meet the criteria.

However, the seven-day average for new cases of coronavirus per 100,000 people in the county is 4.7, and would need to reach 3.9 and stay below it for two weeks to meet the other state criteria for falling to the orange tier.

A county must meet criteria for the next tier for both measures for the prior two consecutive weeks in order to progress down a level.

The state updated its four-color, tiered map on Tuesday and two counties, Marin and Inyo, were downgraded from widespread (purple) to substantial (red).

Of the 1,127 deaths countywide, 423 were skilled nursing facility residents, 77 were in assisted living facilities and one was listed as homeless.

The county’s breakdown of deaths by age is as follows:

  • 85 and older: 31% (346)
  • 75-84: 22% (242)
  • 65-74: 20% (229)
  • 55-64: 13% (158)
  • 45-54: 9% (99)
  • 35-44: 3% (31)
  • 25-34: 1.3% (17)
  • 18-24: <1% (4)
  • 17 and younger: 0% (1)

An estimated 6,565 new cases of the virus have been reported since Aug. 21.

It is estimated about 89% of the cumulative reported cases, or 46,598 people as of Saturday, have recovered. The count of people who have recovered is based on the prior 28-day cumulative case count.

The county reports a total of 786,298 tests have been given since testing began, and at least 8,844 tests were reported in the last 24 hours.

The county also reported 202 patients in hospitals with the coronavirus on Saturday. The peak in the county was 722 confirmed hospitalizations on July 14. The county report showed there are 65 patients in ICUs as of Saturday.

Data posted each day is preliminary and subject to change, officials emphasize. More information may become available as individual case investigations are completed.
