Second Coronavirus Wave Hits Orange County

A second wave of coronavirus infections is beginning to hit Orange County, along with surrounding counties, after hospitalizations and case counts have continued to rise over the past two weeks. “The second wave has started, but it’s not baked into the cake how profound it will be,” said UC Irvine epidemiologist and public health expert Andrew Noymer. He said if people don’t let their guard down, it may not be as bad as the summer spikes. … UC Irvine epidemiologist Daniel Parker said some university researchers have found the infection rate is going up in Orange County.
