L.A. County reports over 5,000 new COVID infections, a record – Los Angeles Times

Los Angeles County reported more than 5,000 new coronavirus cases Thursday, the most it has seen on any one day since the pandemic began, as the state announced that a new, limited stay-at-home order would be put in place starting this weekend.

The sheer magnitude of the figure illustrates that the coronavirus outbreak is surging to devastating new heights and underscores that no one should underestimate the extent of its spread, according to county health officer Dr. Muntu Davis.
