Newport Beach Coronavirus Totals: 81 Test Positive

NEWPORT BEACH, CA —The number of new coronavirus cases increased by 67 on Thursday, the Orange County Health Care Agency reported. A total of 1,079 have tested positive for the virus since the agency began collecting data in Orange County. It is not yet known how many have fully recovered from the COVID-19 disease.

“Stay home, except for essential needs, and help flatten the curve,” OC Health Care Agency Dr. Nichole Quick said. As the numbers level off, the curve will lengthen, according to officials.

“I want to thank all of our neighbors who are cooperating with staying at home,” Dr. Quick said.

The number of those hospitalized and in intensive care units in Orange County increased overnight, with 127 people hospitalized. Of those, 63 are listed as still in the ICU.

The hospitals where people have been admitted into care were not released. The results include figures from 20 area hospitals out of 25 hospitals that report data to the Orange County Health Care Agency.

“Numbers fluctuate day-by-day due to changes in patient conditions,” according to OC Healthcare’s website. All data is “gathered daily, at one point in time.”

An additional 448 patients were tested since Tuesday, bringing the total of Orange County residents tested for coronavirus to 12,239, according to OC Healthcare.
