COVID-19: SLO County reports 290 new cases, five more deaths 

Daily new cases covid slo –The County of San Luis Obispo reported 290 new cases of COVID-19 on Wednesday. What appears to be dips and spikes in the data is reportedly because the county is continuing to process backlogged COVID-19 testing data that may date back a week or so. Active coronavirus cases in the county are currently at 2,835.

The county has now recorded a total of 12,185 cases since the pandemic began. Currently, 53 people are hospitalized, with 14 in the ICU. Hospitalizations and ICU capacity rates are real-time data and have not been affected by the lag, according to the county health department.

The county attributes five more deaths to the virus, bringing the total to 95 deaths since the beginning of the pandemic.
