The number of confirmed coronavirus cases in Riverside County increased by 10 Saturday, March 28, a slow increase compared to previous days.
Jose Arballo Jr., a Riverside County public health spokesman, said Saturday’s 5% increase was “a little artificial” because the system used to log tests was down for much of the day.
The county now has at least 195 cases of COVID-19, county health officials reported. Eight people have died of the disease in the county — no new deaths were announced Saturday.
Friday, Riverside County had 185 confirmed cases.
There was no update Thursday, but Wednesday, it had 107.
Tuesday, it had 59.
One week ago — Saturday, March 21 — there were 30 confirmed cases.
That’s an increase of 550% over seven days.
