As of April 1, Anaheim has 56 cases of COVID-19, the infection caused by the coronavirus.
Anaheim's count is 10 percent of Orange County cases, which is in line with our share of the county population.
Cases countywide and in cities are increasing as more testing is being done.
The additional cases don't necessarily represent new spread of the virus in our community but rather detection of existing cases with more testing.
A case in Anaheim does not reflect where someone was infected. Someone could have been infected traveling, at work or out somewhere else.
Some perspective is also helpful: The number of cases in Anaheim is less than one-tenth of 1 percent of our city's 360,000 people.
