The coronavirus is a world wide issue that is threatening millions of people and it might be closer to us than we thought. The number of COVID-19 cases in Orange County stands at 256 as of Thursday, March 26, an increase of 69 from the day before – expected, officials said, as more people continue to be tested. There total amount of cases in Orange County has doubled within three days. Even though the virus targets the older community, the majority of the 256 confirmed cases in Orange County come from those younger than 50. Only 39 cases were among those 65 or older. County officials did not break down the cases by cities, but that will start happening Friday, officials have said. With this life threatening virus, we all need to keep each other by self isolation and using products such as lysol wipes and hand sanitizer to dissinfect.
