  • Covid-19 cases in Los Angeles will reach 500,000 by the end of the year based on the current pace of infection, and deaths could surpass 11,000.
  • The latest projection comes two days after Garcetti issued an order for residents to stay at home, warning that the city is approaching a “devastating tipping point” in its fight against Covid-19.
  • Los Angeles’ current case load already puts it ahead of nations including Pakistan — which has 20 times more people — as well as Canada and Saudi Arabia.
