Current case totals in NELA (updated Oct. 21)
Since March 17, when the first confirmed COVID-19 case was reported in Eagle Rock, the coronavirus has spread rapidly, fundamentally changing the course of life for residents of the neighborhoods of Northeast Los Angeles.
As of Oct. 21 the cumulative total of confirmed COVID-19 cases in NELA was 3,560. 166 new cases have been confirmed in NELA in the last 14 days, a number that is surely an undercount due to reporting glitches that health officials expect to rectify shortly.
Highland Park has had the most confirmed cases of COVID-19 in NELA, with 1,208 cases, followed by Glassell Park with 756, Eagle Rock with 707, Mt. Washington with 598 and Elysian Valley with 291.
