Shasta County could have more covid-19 cases than have been reported 08-04-2020

Published August 7, 2020

California health officials have discovered a problem with the reporting of COVID-19 numbers that could have resulted in an underreporting of cases. The issue stems from technical issues with the electronic laboratory reporting system. Health officials say this hasn't impacted patient treatment or safety but has made the number of cases reported to the state database lower than reality.
