The Orange County Health Care Agency has been releasing the latest breakdown of laboratory-confirmed coronavirus cases by city and community each day. As of March 2, the county has reported 246,820 cases of COVID-19 with 3,952 deaths.
The data originally only separated cities and areas with more than 25,000 residents, but as of March 30, cities with fewer residents are being added to the breakdown once five or more people tested positive.
Orange County authorities stressed that the data does not indicate higher risk of transmission in a particular area since it only provides the city of residence for COVID-19 patients, not necessarily where they contracted the virus.
The data is updated daily on the O.C. Health Care Agency’s website.
