Reporter Roundup: Major Spike in COVID-19 Deaths; Funeral Homes Prep

On March 26 Reporter Roundup, KPCC reporters have the latest on the massive spike in COVID-19 confirmed cases and fatalities, what funeral homes are doing to prepare and why daycare centers are closing.

Los Angeles County experienced a major jump in the number of COVID-19 cases and deaths overnight, according to KPCC’s Jackie Fortier. The Los Angeles Convention Center is being prepped to take in COVID-19 patients who need to stay isolated after they are discharged from the hospital.

KPCC’s Sharon McNary has more details on what funeral homes are doing to prepare for the potential of a major increase in human remains.

KPCC’s Mariana Dale reports some daycare centers are closing because toddlers aren’t very good at social distance and the risk of spreading the coronavirus is just too great.
