Anaheim: 904 Cases

Anaheim saw another sizable increase in new cases reported May 26, adding 22 cases for a running total of 904 since reporting began in March.

The 22 new cases continue a downward trend following Anaheim’s largest single-day increase of 50 on May 23.

Last week was unusual with inconsistent data reporting, with low numbers on several days and big jumps on others. 

We may see that again this week.

Data reported each day can vary based on how individual hospitals and labs report back to the Orange County Health Care Agency, which supplies data for Anaheim and other cities.

Last week also saw a glitch in reporting from the state to OC Health.

Many new cases in Anaheim and Orange County are from skilled nursing facilities with fewer in the general population. 

You can read more on how nursing facilities are being addressed in the "Skilled Nursing Facilities" section.

Anaheim’s cases are out of 5,578 cumulative cases for all of Orange County, which added 110 cases today.

Anaheim’s cumulative cases make up 16 percent of the county’s total reported cases, unchanged from the previous two days.

Sixteen percent is five percentage points above our 11 percent share of Orange County’s population.

Among cities, Santa Ana has the most cases at 1,032, followed by Anaheim at 904, Huntington Beach at 329 and Irvine at 180.

Anaheim and the other three cities are the largest in Orange County by population, so we would expect them to have the highest number of cases compared to other cities in the county.

A note on case counts: for Anaheim and all of Orange County, case counts are cumulative ― meaning they are a running tally since tracking began.

So Anaheim’s count does not reflect active cases, which are smaller. Thankfully, the vast majority of people who tested positive weeks ago in our city have gone on to recover.

Anaheim’s running case count represents a small fraction, 0.2 percent, of Anaheim’s 360,000 residents.

Although we don’t get city-specific data on deaths, Anaheim is aware of 17 deaths in our city from complications of Covid-19, the condition caused by coronavirus.

Fifteen of those deaths have been at skilled nursing facilities in our city and were older patients with advanced medical conditions.

Our hearts go out the families.

While any loss of life is heartbreaking, Anaheim follows all of Orange County with a relatively low death rate.

We rely on data from the county of Orange and continue to request information on recoveries and active cases.

On May 26, OC Health began releasing an estimated number of Covid-19 patients who have recovered. That number is conservative, at 1,995. 

OC Health does not track actual recovery data.

This estimate is calculated by taking the difference between the prior 28-day cumulative case count and current number of deaths.

We are in this together and will get through this together.
