Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailycaller.com: “LA Brought Back Its Mask Mandate Over Three COVID-19 Hospitalizations”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Los Angeles County is bringing back its indoor mask mandate despite there not being a single COVID-19 patient in the ICU at its largest healthcare provider.

LA County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said last week that the county would bring back its indoor mask mandate by the end of July after the area moved into the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) “high” risk community level based on transmission and hospitalization rates. However, doctors in Los Angeles raised questions this week about just how many people are in the hospital due to the coronavirus.

“Only 10% of our COVID-positive admissions are admitted due to COVID, virtually none of them go to the ICU, and when they do go to the ICU, it is not for pneumonia. They are not intubated,” LA County+USC Medical Center (LAC+USC) chief medical officer Dr. Brad Spellberg said recently at an internal town hall.

After video of the comments spread, LAC+USC released a statement clarifying the remarks, but it confirmed that the area isn’t seeing a surge in serious COVID-19 cases.

“We would like to be very clear: the COVID-19 pandemic remains a very serious public health threat that we must continue to fight with every tool available,” the statement read. “While we are not currently experiencing an increase in ICU admissions at LAC+USC, we are seeing a significant increase in the number of infections among our patients, staff and the communities we serve.”
