Southern California hospitals gearing up for surge in coronavirus cases

Over the past week, UCI Medical Center in Orange has averaged approximately 50 hospitalized coronavirus-positive patients a day and nearly 880 patients with the virus have been admitted and treated since the middle of March, spokesman John Murray said. “These patients are admitted to dedicated (coronavirus) units, including ICUs. We will expand the number of beds available as needed,” he said.
