San Bernardino County reports 18 more coronavirus deaths – San Bernardino Sun


Eighteen more people have died due to coronavirus complications and 156 more have tested positive according to San Bernardino County data released Sunday, Sept 13.

The county noted on its website Wednesday there could be a spike in the number of deaths over the next few days due to staff’s work to validate and clean its data.

Though the county recorded 26 deaths Wednesday, that was a two-day total, as the county did not report numbers Tuesday due to the Labor Day holiday.

The seven-day average of new deaths has been trending downwards, from a high of 15.1 on July 25 to 0.7 last week before the spike.

Data released by the state Sunday show the number of COVID-19 patients in county hospitals is at 190, down from a peak of more than 600 in late July.

Here are the latest numbers, according to county and state public health officials.
