OC reports 7 additional COVID-19 deaths bringing total over 300, jump in hospitalizations

On Thursday, healthcare officials revealed more worrying news: over half the county’s patients are under 44. “These are not patients who are just going through drive through testing,” said Dr. Daniel Chow from UCI Health. “These are patients who are sick enough to visit our ER.” Dr. Chow, co-director of the Center for Artificial Intelligence in Diagnostic Medicine at UCI, collects data to identify vulnerable patients, and he found them. Santa Ana, Anaheim, and Garden Grove are among the cities Dr. Chow found are being most impacted by COVID-19.
