COVID-19 Case Counts and Testing Figures

While COVID-19 is a disease that can cause serious illness and death, and those 65 and older or those with underlying health conditions are most vulnerable, studies by the World Health Organization estimate that approximately 80% of persons with COVID-19 have a mild illness that resolves. The remaining persons with COVID-19 have more severe illness that may lead to hospitalization, delayed recovery and occasionally death. It is important to follow the state and local health official orders and guidance, which will help to protect all of us, especially the most vulnerable in our community.

2 Data are preliminary and subject to change.

3 COVID-19 now has reached community transmission status, which means people may have contracted the illness elsewhere in the County. This may not necessarily be in the city where they live. These data should not be interpreted as an indication of activity in any specific location. Under a community transmission status, the true prevalence of this disease may not be known as most cases are likely not diagnosed or reported.

 

In order to better focus public health resources on the changing needs of the Orange County community, beginning March 27, the HCA is no longer collecting information about Orange County travelers returning from countries that have confirmed COVID-19 outbreaks. Community transmission of COVID-19 has been identified in Orange County since early March, and since then, most of the confirmed cases were not related to travel outside of the United States.
