Orange County reports 886 new COVID-19 cases, death toll lowered by 2

A new coronavirus statistics site has been launched that compares five counties statewide, according to UC Irvine. The site features bar graphs of data since April 30 showing statistics from Alameda, Los Angeles, Orange, San Diego and Santa Clara counties. The UCI scientists chose those five counties to reflect two counties struggling with the most cases — Orange and Los Angeles — and Alameda and Santa Clara in Northern California, which have been doing better, says Suellen Hopfer, an assistant professor of public health at UCI.
