SoCal has the sun, surf and most coronavirus cases

Five California counties have more than 70% of the entire state's coronavirus cases and when it comes to hospitalizations, the number's even higher. And Tesla CEO Elon Musk joins those requesting to reopen faster, but he didn't wait for an answer.

It's Arlene Martínez, with news for Monday.

But first, Disneyland Shanghai reopens, and tickets for the rest of the week are sold out. Is Anaheim next?

New data show the majority of cases, current hospitalizations and deaths in the Golden State are concentrated in Southern California.

Together, five SoCal counties account for about 71% of all the state's cases to date. Not surprisingly, Los Angeles County, as the most populous, leads the pack. But despite housing a quarter of California's population, it has 47% of the cases as of Monday. The other top four are Riverside, San Diego, Orange County and San Bernardino.

As of Monday, there were 2,770 fatalities from the coronavirus. There are now 67,939 confirmed cases statewide.
