#Every10Minutes someone dies of COVID-19 in LA County. People who were loved and will be missed. Until we slow the spread, the next person to tragically pass away could be someone you know.— LA Public Health (@lapublichealth) December 31, 2020
On New Year's Eve, L.A. County Public Health started tweeting to remind people to stay home because of the rising number of deaths.
Each tweet highlights a person in the community that could die from COVID-19. Ranging from "someone's mother" to "that server at your favorite restaurant that knew your order," the tweets show how death can affect anyone and everyone.
Each tweet includes the hashtag "Every10Minutes" and ends with a message from the county reminding residents to stay home.
"Please stay home tonight. Slow the spread. Save a life."
