RIVERSIDE (CNS) – The overall number of people hospitalized with
coronavirus in Riverside County edged up, but the number of intensive care
patients dropped slightly, with four additional virus-related deaths reported
in the latest data.

According to the Riverside University Health System, COVID
hospitalizations countywide are at 274, up from 271 on Wednesday, and that
includes 60 ICU patients, down four from a day ago.

Officials said that the aggregate number of COVID cases recorded since
the public health documentation period began in March 2020 is 381,461,
compared to 380,864 on Wednesday.

A total 5,496 deaths from virus-related complications have been
recorded in the last 20 months. The fatalities are trailing indicators because
of delays processing death certificates and can go back weeks, according to
health officials.

The number of known active virus cases countywide is 4,318, down 14
from a day ago. The active count is derived by subtracting deaths and
recoveries from the current total — 381,461 — according to the county
Executive Office. Verified patient recoveries countywide are 371,647.
