Riverside County Coronavirus Trial Growth – Press Enterprise


The focus of Riverside County officials, encouraging people to test for novel coronaviruses, appears to have paid off with testing for nearly record numbers that have been processed this week.

In the last seven days, a total of 58,513 coronovirus trials were added in Riverside County. More tests have been included in just one week, in mid-August when state officials were processing a large backlog of tests.

Which includes 9,112 new tests added on Friday, October 9.

Riverside officials are pushing more people to stand trial, which could help bring the county back to the less restrictive Red Tier of the governor’s reopening plan.

Counties with a test rate below the statewide median have fewer positive cases than counties with a statewide median.

This week, approximately 200 people per day per 100,000 Riverside County residents were tested for coronovirus, up to 139 in early September. This is still below the statewide average of 239 people per day per 100,000 residents.

In a news release on Friday, Riverside County Public Health Officer Drs. Cameron Kaiser said, “In addition to the benefits to our businesses, there is a payment for you.” “If you are medically weak, early detection of the infection can reduce the risk of complications, and even if you are well, it means that you should take precautions soon to prevent it from spreading to your family or workplace. Can be used. If we can find less prevalence, fewer people will be at risk, and this is the most important goal. ”

According to state and county public health officials, the number as of Friday, October 23 is as follows.
