BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - The current local county hospitalization number is important when tracking the spread of the coronavirus.
Butte County Public Health has been reporting on its web-based dashboard the current number of “local” people in the hospital. As of Aug. 13, the dashboard does not represent the actual total number of coronavirus patients in the hospital.
California itself is reporting a different number.
We asked Butte County health officials about the discrepancy between the numbers. Watch the video player above for details.
