Coronavirus takes wrenching toll on Orange County Latinos who have no choice but to work

UC Irvine physicians began noticing that many COVID-19 patients were coming in from Anaheim and Santa Ana, said Dr. Shruti Gohil, associate medical director of epidemiology and infection prevention at UC Irvine and a professor of infectious diseases. “Those were the top two highest since the beginning of our upswing,” Gohil said. … An analysis by UC Irvine showed that positive test rates were higher in July in other nearby cities such as Buena Park, Garden Grove, Fullerton, La Habra and Placentia, all of which have significant Latino populations.
