In final daily update of COVID-19 stats, Orange County shows uptick in hospitalizations

Orange County saw a marked increase in COVID-19 hospitalizations reported Thursday, July 1. … Andrew Noymer, a UC Irvine [associate] professor of population health and disease prevention, told City News Service, “I’m not over the moon about it, but it’s a little hard to say” if the increase is a cause for concern at this point. “It’ll be nice to keep an eye on the numbers” to see if there is a trend or if it is just a one-day blip in data, Noymer said.
