Coronavirus cases climb in the inland kingdom a year after the state ‘reopened’

A year ago, on Wednesday, June 15, California celebrated that many had brought an end to the coronavirus pandemic and lifted most health-based restrictions on people’s everyday lives.

The number of people infected with the virus had reached a low level. For example, in Los Angeles County, about 200 new cases were being reported every day as the much-hyped “reopening” neared.

Some were getting so sick that they needed medical treatment.

Hospitals linked to COVID-19 rose to 27 in Riverside County, 41 in San Bernardino County and 212 in LA County, after a month-long decline from a catastrophic holiday spike in late 2020 and early 2021 that is still the worst of the pandemic. Stands like a wave.

Then at last summer’s party the Delta variant crashed.

A large number contracted the virus. Many landed in the hospital. People died

There was another sharp increase in cases and hospitalizations in December and January as the Omicron variant took center stage. The Inland Empire then enjoyed a long period of relative good health.

Now cases are increasing again. Since early May, reports of new infections have climbed at a sharp clip, nearly doubling in San Bernardino County and tripling in Riverside County.

Those reports are likely underestimating the magnitude of the wave, said epidemiologist Andrew Noymer, an associate professor of population health and disease prevention at UC Irvine because many families rely on at-home tests.

“Those are, for all intents and purposes, not being reported,” he said.

What is more accurately and fully reported, Noymar said, is the number of people with COVID-19 in the hospital.

“Hospitalizations have been modest, thank goodness,” he said.
