Contra Costa County reports 175 cases, three deaths from coronavirus

As of Sunday afternoon, Contra Costa County had reported 175 confirmed novel coronavirus cases and three deaths from COVID-19, according to the Contra Costa Health Services website.

Those numbers are up from 151 cases and two deaths reported at 9:30 a.m. Saturday.

It wasn't immediately known Saturday night the degree to which increased testing played a part in the higher number of cases.

Two of the three reported deaths have come since Friday morning.

Contra Costa County health officials have announced plans to prepare parts of at least two facilities -- the former Los Medanos Community Hospital in Pittsburg and Alhambra High School in Martinez -- for treatment of some county patients as a surge of COVID-19 patients is expected.

One important thing to note: the county always updates the daily numbers at 1 pm. It's not accurate to say Contra Costa had 151 cases on Saturday and 175 on Sunday. It was actually 151 as of Friday at 1 pm, 168 as of Saturday at 1 pm, and 175 as of Sunday at 1 pm. The number of cases, while rising, appears to have slowed down the past 2-3 days. Let's hope that continues.
