COVID Numbers – LA County Still at ‘Extremely High Risk’

The City of Culver City mourns the loss of our residents who have passed away, which sadly includes the passing of residents due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The County of Los Angeles Public Health Department tracks COVID-19 cases and deaths of County residents.

Culver City’s Case and Death Counts – as of February 9, 2021
Cases in Culver City – 1,989
Deaths in Culver City – 73

Cases in Los Angeles County – 3,434 new cases were reported today (1,155,309 cases to date)
Deaths in Los Angeles County – 141 new deaths were reported today (18,500 deaths to date)

There are 3,973 people with COVID-19 currently hospitalized, and 29% of these people are in the intensive care unit. 

Although cases may be declining overall, there remains an alarming gap between Latino/Latinx residents and other groups. For Latino/Latinx residents, the daily rate of new cases was more than 2,300 per 100,000 people on January 11. Since then, the rate dropped to 856 new cases per 100,000 people, but this rate is still more than two times that of African American/Black residents who have the second highest case rate of 400 new cases per 100,000 per day. Asian residents have a case rate of 319 per 100,000 people and White residents have a case rate of 318 per 100,000 people. Individuals and families, which are part of the hardest hit communities, continue to remain a priority for Public Health, including efforts to vaccinate residents most heavily impacted.

Please continue to protect yourself and those around you by wearing a face covering, washing your hands regularly, staying at home as much as possible, keeping at least six feet of physical distance from others when in public, and avoiding people who do not live with you.
