Ventura County coronavirus cases top 200. Here are the communities with patients
The number of coronavirus cases in Ventura County continues to rise.
The county added 18 new cases of people testing positive for the coronavirus in its latest update, bringing the total to 221. The total includes 62 instances where someone recovered, 45 cases where an individual was hospitalized and 153 cases under active quarantine.
The county reported one additional death Thursday, bringing its total to six. The county reports only age ranges. So far all of the victims were in their 70s and 80s, all with preexisting health conditions, said Ashley Bautista, a county spokeswoman. The county has not reported where the victims lived. The first death was reported March 22.
Last week, health officials offered a grim prediction: If residents did not take proper steps to socially distance and quarantine themselves, the county could see as many as 1,000 people die from the illness.
Simi Valley leads with the most number of confirmed coronavirus infection cases with 46. Oxnard has 40 cases, and Thousand Oaks has 33.
