There are 4,163 active cases of coronavirus. This number is derived from the total number of confirmed cases and the subtraction of the total number of recoveries and deaths.
According to the Riverside University Health System, 288 patients infected with coronavirus were hospitalized countywide as of Monday. That number includes 73 patients in intensive care units.
There are 5 newly reported fatalities bringing the county’s coronavirus death toll to 4,667.
The number of documented patient recoveries stands at 300,387.
The doubling time — or the number of days in which documented virus cases increase 100% — is 217 days. A doubling rate of seven days is reason for alarm, while expanding doubling times point to moderation, or gradual success in virus containment, according to health officials.
The county’s COVID positivity rate is 8.9%, up from 1.1% June 30, while the state-adjusted case rate is 16.9 per 100,000 residents, based on a rolling seven-day average, compared to 1.5 per 100,000 4 weeks ago.
