SAN BERNARDINO (CBSLA) — On Monday, San Bernardino County reported its first coronavirus-related death. On Wednesday, the number of deaths increased to two. And on Thursday, the county reported its third death.

The county’s latest coronavirus death was an 89-year-old woman, though it was not immediately clear if she had underlying medical issues. The first two deaths reported were a 50-year-old man and a 46-year-old man, both with underlying health issues.

The latest death came as the county introduced a new online tool that provides a visual dashboard detailing the county’s efforts.

So far, the county has tested 673 people and has 54 confirmed cases — 32 men and 22 women. Of those confirmed cases, 28 are between the ages of 18-49, 17 are between the ages of 50-64 and nine are over the age of 65.

And starting Friday, San Bernardino County will begin conducting drive-thru testing for the novel coronavirus.

The testing would be available by appointment only, and sign up and details were available on the county’s website.
