Deadline: Los Angeles Covid-19 Transmission Rate Creeping Up In Recent Weeks; Unclear If Cases, Hospitalizations, Deaths Will Jump Also. “County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer reported in a Zoom meeting with reporters that the estimated transmission number was 0.93 in early March, up from 0.87 the week before. The range of uncertainty is from .085 to 1.04. Any R number over 1 means that every person infected is passing the virus on to more than one other county resident. In a region of 10 million, infections can quickly snowball.”
