Outside of the San Fernando Valley, the Agoura and Calabasas area has a total of 179 cases and 11 deaths.
The Burbank-Glendale area, including La Canada Flintridge, has 2,053 cases and 160 deaths.
The Santa Clarita and Antelope Valley areas, including Canyon Country and Castaic, have 5,634 cases and 79 deaths.
There could be more cases in any of these areas. The county is still investigating 2,232 possible COVID-19 cases and hasn’t yet released information on where those patients live in the county.
And due to the limited availability of COVID-19 tests, officials have said there are many more people infected with the novel coronavirus than are represented in these numbers.
As of 8 p.m. Saturday across Los Angeles County, the health departments of LA County and the cities of Pasadena and Long Beach have recorded 98,074 confirmed cases of COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.
Of the 98,074 patients with positive COVID-19 tests, 8,159 have been hospitalized.
There have been 3,310 deaths in the county due to the virus.
Between Wednesday and Saturday, there were 6,363 new cases and 61 deaths across LA County.
The county’s data is released late in the afternoon and covers the period of time ending at 8 p.m. the previous day.
Totals for Long Beach and Pasadena are provided by those cities’ public health departments and are generally ahead of the data supplied by the county.
Community-level data from Los Angeles County includes the number of positive cases, deaths and COVID-19 tests administered along with percentages of the area’s population for each.
Cases and deaths are added to the totals based on when they are confirmed, not necessarily when the illness is diagnosed or a death occurs.
Rates of infection, death and testing that are provided by LA County are age-adjusted to account for differences in the distribution of age in the underlying population, said county officials. The adjusted rates are useful for comparing rates between cities and communities that have different age distributions.
