That's a good question, but this particular interactive doesn't readily supply the answer. You would have to enter the name of each county to get the national ranking, and then compare it to LA.

OC is also at the lowest risk level, but my hunch is that, compared to LA, factors like maybe having fewer recent NYC, European and Asian arrivals; less density; and maybe fewer people in essential positions have caused us to have relatively fewer cases and deaths.

Can you please quote more from the section about "factors" and give the definition of "severe," if there is one?

Please check the NY Times article. They have special COVID-19 access, if you are not a subscriber.

My data point, is our friend's grandma 95 years was in a Santa Monica facility and was being brought food by her relatives because she refused to eat facility food. No signs of sickness or cold. Lockdown then forbid visitors and outside food, and grandma refused all facility food and died a week later. Was labeled as C19 death.

My understanding is that nursing holmes are now trying to get immunity from C19 lawsuits.

Doesn't work for me, I think because access is to a small number of articles from an existing account and I'm not going to create an account to get around that.

Tulare County is now creeping up behind L.A. County in rate of death from COVID-19. They are at a mortality rate of 13.3 deaths per 100,000 residents. L.A. County is at 16.7. (The L.A. Times survey lists L.A. County at 18 now, Tulare at 14.6. Either way, the next highest mortality rate in any other county in the state is well below these two.)

In another part of the forum, someone mentioned the negative effects of the rush to the grocery stores in LA that Garcetti induced in March. I think that's probably a reason COVID-19 spread more in Los Angeles than in most other places

But we certainly heard the same thing in OC. In fact, I remember that we were told to "make sure we had enough food and supplies to stay at home for two weeks." Perhaps people went overboard with that, but the message that we had better all prepare by stocking up was loud and clear.

I imagine quite a few people bought enough to last 2 MONTHS or more. Remember a week or so there where the shelves were empty of almost anything food related? People are insane and this confirmed it for me.

After a few weeks of somewhat regular stock on supermarket shelves, when I last grocery shopped a few days ago, there was not one package of paper napkins or a package of normal TP (there were a few 4-packs of the small, 1-ply TP, which would last half a day in our house). I asked the checker as I was in line, and she said that the extended stay at home order was causing people to stockpile again. Extended?
