— Orange County reported 403 cases of coronavirus infection on Saturday, up from 256 Thursday and 95 the previous weekend.

— Four deaths have been confirmed so far. One was a county resident in his 70s who had underlying health conditions. Officials have not released information about the others.

Analysis

Health officials have said the county’s caseload will probably continue to increase as more people are tested.

“Community members need to know that we expect more cases and, unfortunately, more deaths in the coming days and weeks,” said county Health Officer Dr. Nichole Quick.

The county started releasing the number of cases by city on Friday, but officials warn that the counts don’t mean one location is more or less safe than another.
