Despite rising case numbers, Orange County hospitalizations stabilize for first time since December

Andrew Noymer shared in this forward-thinking when it comes to signs that the peak is here. “It’s good hospitalizations have plateaued – I’ll take that all day long,” Noymer, [UCI associate] professor of public health, as well as an epidemiologist, told City News Service on Thursday. “It’s too early to do a victory lap,” he continued, “I was pretty sure this summer Delta would peak higher than it did. I actually don’t think that it is inconceivable that we’re finding the peak, but just for one day – you’ve got to give me more than that.”
