The top health official at the Department of Health said Friday that Los Angeles County is doing ineffectively with regards to expanding the number of residents who are completely vaccinated.
“We are gaining next to no headway expanding vaccination coverage among our residents,” Dr. Barbara Ferrer, LA County Department of Public Health Director, said. “To stay away from the pattern of floods at regular intervals, we do have to see a huge expansion in vaccination coverage. We need to reach whatever number people as would be prudent in every one of the subgroups in case we’re to get an opportunity at finishing this pandemic.”
Ferrer likewise said she doesn’t have the foggiest idea when indoor mask-mandates will be lifted in light of the fact that the Delta variation is still profoundly transmissible in the county.
The County revealed Friday 2,024 new cases of COVID-19, 50 extra passings and 1,385 hospitalizations. The general case rate per 100,000 people is down 35% from this time last week.
