Orange County’s COVID-19 hospitalizations continue ticking down

“The hospital numbers are looking a little stalled,” Andrew Noymer, an epidemiologist and UC Irvine [associate] professor of population health and disease prevention, told City News Service. “The hospitalizations don’t seem to want to go below 300. We’ve been above 300 since Aug. 1 … I don’t doubt it will be in the 200s, but it would be nicer to see a faster decline, but that’s better than an increase.
