UCI releases COVID-19 website

The University of California, Irvine, which has been privately tracking and analyzing local coronavirus figures since the onset of the pandemic, has released a public online database about the virus in the county that provides comparisons with neighboring California counties. The website shows hospitalized patients with COVID-19, intensive care unit patients, new daily cases and new daily deaths caused by the disease, and provides comparisons between Orange County and Alameda, Los Angeles, San Diego and Santa Clara counties. This is the first website to provide county-to-county comparisons of key coronavirus statistics, according to UCI.
