Los Angeles County reported its largest single-day total of new coronavirus cases in months as the region races to wrap its arms around what officials now say is a new surge of the virus. But even with roughly 53% of L.A. County fully vaccinated, millions of residents remain vulnerable to the latest resurgence of COVID-19. Daily COVID-19 death totals remain relatively low — at an average of about 4 in L.A. County and 23 statewide, according to data compiled by The Times. At the peak of the pandemic, the state was recording more than 300,000 new coronavirus cases over a seven-day period. But L.A. County and the cities of Long Beach and Pasadena — which have their own independent health departments — are the only areas that have said they will mandate it.
