The coronavirus pandemic continues to take a toll across Los Angeles County. Here is a look at the situation as of Tuesday, June 2.
It uses the latest information from L.A. County Public Health as well Long Beach and Pasadena, which have their own health departments and are typically at least a day ahead of the county in reporting their cities’ numbers.

Health officials have been cautioning all along that the number of confirmed cases, and the list of locations, don’t show the disease’s true prevalence. Researchers working in L.A. County found in April that the number of people who have actually contracted COVID-19 was probably 28 to 55 times higher than the number of confirmed cases.
On Tuesday, 62 more deaths were announced, bringing the county’s toll to 2,448.
