Cases in LA County – 3498 reported on 8/11 (1,335,332 cases to date)

Currently, there are 1,573 people with COVID-19 currently hospitalized in the County – an increase of 331 people in one week – and 24% of these people are in the ICU. Testing results are available for more than 7,560,000 individuals with 23% of people testing positive. Yesterday's daily positivity rate was 4.6%
As hospitalizations continue to increase, the Department of Public Health highlights data showing that vaccinated people remain exceptionally well protected from severe COVID-19 illness.
Among the more than 5.1 million fully vaccinated people in LA County, Public Health identified less than 1% or 15,628 people fully vaccinated who tested positive for COVID-19 as of August 3. Of those who tested positive, 446 were hospitalized. This translates to 0.009% of all fully vaccinated people ending up hospitalized. Deaths in this group are also very low at 0.0008%, representing 41 people fully vaccinated that passed away.
"This compelling evidence shows that fully vaccinated people remain at low risk for becoming infected and even lower risk for having a bad outcome if they are infected," health officials said.
