Riverside County on Sunday reported 36 new confirmed COVID-19 cases, a significant drop from the triple-digit increases seen in recent days.

Additionally, the number of people who have recovered from the virus is up by 32 over Saturday’s numbers, for a total of 642.

Riverside County health officials Saturday reported 145 new cases of coronavirus and five more deaths, bringing the countywide totals to 2,602 cases and 74 deaths.

“The majority of the population is doing what we asked,” Dr. Cameron Kaiser said Friday. “People are taking appropriate precautions and following the orders that were issued. But we could still go back in the wrong direction. We need to know where our weak points are.”

“Cases have plummeted precipitously,” Kaiser said. “But it’s too soon to lift our foot from the gas pedal. We’re getting close. As the situation changes … we will be looking at recommendations for many things. But we don’t have enough understanding of our case load to put us past the (emergency) order.”

Two weeks ago, the county was indicating that statistical modeling showed the possibility of 65,000 infections and 1,000 deaths by the first week of May. Those predictions were altered Wednesday, with both the infection count and death rate predicted to be one-fifth of the original estimates.
