Orange County doctors and epidemiologists fear another holiday coronavirus spike

UC Irvine epidemiologist Daniel Parker said the numbers aren’t looking good heading into the New Year holiday. “It’s been looking bad since before Thanksgiving. We knew it was going to get worse with Thanksgiving and it keeps getting worse — it’s just bad,” Parker said in a Tuesday phone interview. “My best guess is we’re going to be well into January, maybe February before it kind of drops off.”
