Someone Dies Of Covid Every 10 Minutes In Los Angeles County

  • As the city of Los Angeles has become the epicenter of COVID-19 in the United States and the number of cases and deaths continue to rise, the Los Angeles Public Health Department started a Twitter campaign on Thursday to highlight the fact that someone in LA County is dying every ten minutes because of the virus.
  • The LA Public Health Department is using the hashtag #Every10Minutes, making a powerful and emotional plea for people to stay home on New Year’s Eve. “Slow the spread,” the tweets also read. “Save a life.”
  • “No one would believe this is in the United States,” Scott Byington, a critical care nurse at St. Francis Medical Center in Lynwood told the LA Times. “Everyone is doing what they can do. It’s not that anybody is slacking. It’s just that it’s too overwhelming for everyone.”
