Over the last week, reported COVID-19 hospitalizations have increased in both Riverside and San Bernardino County.

In San Bernardino County, hospitalizations increased by 7% this week compared to last. Despite that increase, new cases declined by 13%.

In Riverside County, hospitalizations were also up compared to last week by 14%, and like San Bernardino County, new cases decreased but by 27%.

Overall, in total, both counties reported 79 new COVID-19 related deaths. These number comes as a new scientific study from London reports that the COIVD-19 vaccine saved over 20 million lives during the first year of the pandemic.
