Orange County’s Covid-19 hospitalizations keep climbing

Orange County reported more than 40 additional COVID-19 patients Wednesday as the Delta variant of the coronavirus fuels a surge among unvaccinated residents. … “Monday the hospitalizations were up considerably and Tuesday they were up but not by as much and now it looks like they are up more and so I’m not liking this,” said Andrew Noymer, an epidemiologist and UC Irvine [associate] professor of population health and disease prevention.
