The Health Protection Surveillance Centre has today been notified of 3 additional deaths related to COVID-19.

This makes 28 new total cases (27 positive and one presumptive) since last Sunday, for a total of 315 with COVID-19.

The number of confirmed infections in Los Angeles County is doubling every 190.6 days.

Florida's cumulative COVID-19 case count climbed to 755,020 on Sunday. Hospitalizations remain short of the more than 2,200 reported at the peak of the crisis in mid-July. The county reported 116 cases the week of October 5 and 121 cases the week of September 28.

Tennessee Department of Health data also reveals that there are 231 intensive care unit beds now available statewide, a slight improvement from the last few days.

The ages among the new cases range from three to 72 years.

So far, more than 2,890,000 individuals have been tested in L.A. County. That is a slight decrease from the week before, when an average of 4.6% of new tests were positive, according to health department data.

Note: The Florida Department of Health says that each county's percent positivity for new cases (people who tested positive for the first time) does not include retests (people who have tested positive once and are being tested for a second time). This positivity rate helps officials determine whether more new cases are being identified because of increased transmission or because more people are being tested. The county's average daily positive test rate rose from 3.06% to 3.80% this week.
