Los Angeles County saw another jump in coronavirus cases Friday with 61 new cases reported.

The total number of cases stands at 292, but officials warned that number is going to rise dramatically as more tests occur.

Testing continues to pick up in L.A. County. So far, about 2,400 people have been tested in L.A. County. Roughly 10% of those have tested positive, health officials said. They said an individual would need to go to a medical provider, who would then authorize a test. They stressed to not go to a hospital to be tested.

The median age for the total of those who have been infected is 47, county Public Health Department Director Dr. Barbara Ferrer said. There are 138 people between the ages of 18 and 65 who have tested positive.

"The risk is spread across everyone," Ferrer said at a briefing Friday.
