Is a second coronavirus wave hitting Orange County?

UC Irvine epidemiologist Daniel Parker said new cases could paint a picture of what was happening a couple weeks ago. … “So the transmission that’s happening right now, you’re not going to see that in cases for two or three weeks.”  … Parker’s colleague, UC Irvine epidemiologist Andrew Noymer said the number of people in ICUs could indicate a second wave. … “But make no mistake about it, there’s going to be a second wave in Orange County and nationwide.”
