Orange County reports 18 more COVID cases, 3 more deaths

Andrew Noymer, a UC Irvine [associate] professor of population health and disease prevention, said the increase in hospitalizations should not be a concern. “As beds become available, there’s a temptation to use (the ICU beds),” Noymer told City News Service, adding that any surge that might have come from Memorial Day weekend activities would probably be evident at this point. “I’m not expecting one at all,” he said.
