Los Angeles County experiences coronavirus downward trend

“It’s definitely heartening to see more and more people adopting these public health best practices like wearing masks and keeping their distance from each other and we love to see it,” UCI epidemiologist Andrew Noymer tells KNX. He is worried however about the more contagious strains causing yet another surge. … Noymer attributes the decline in cases to more people wearing face coverings, social distancing, getting vaccinated and more people with antibodies who have had the virus and recovered.
