The latest trends
Experts say the true number of people infected is unknown and likely much higher than official tallies.
Over the past week, the county has averaged 1,234 new cases and 40.7 new deaths per day. The number of confirmed infections is currently doubling every 32.7 days.
State and local officials are closely watching the latest figures as they weigh when and how to reopen. One metric is whether counties have kept the number of new cases reported over the last 14 days to less than 25 per 100,000 residents.
Los Angeles County currently fails that test. Over the last two weeks, officials have confirmed 17,989 new cases, which amounts to 178.1 per 100,000.

Hospitals and patients
One goal of the state's stay-at-home mandate is to slow the virus in hope of preventing hospitals from being overrun.
There are currently patients admitted to Los Angeles County hospitals who have a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19, according to the latest government figures. Of those, are in an intensive-care unit.
In order to reopen, counties must show that hospitalizations have stabilized, meaning that daily increases have averaged less 5% over a seven-day period, or that a county can’t have more than 20 hospitalizations on any single day over a 14-day period.
Currently, 50 of the state's 58 counties pass this test, which is one of several that can be applied. Los Angeles County currently meets the standard.
Nursing homes have become a tragic focal point of the coronavirus outbreak. California's Department of Public Health has listed 354 skilled nursing and assisted-living facilities in Los Angeles County that currently have COVID-19 cases.
The state last updated the list on June 5. Officials withhold the precise number where there are 10 or fewer cases. The numbers reflect cumulative counts.
