Orange County’s COVID-19 hospitalizations stabilize

“It’s good hospitalizations have plateaued — I’ll take that all day long,” Andrew Noymer, an epidemiologist and UC Irvine [associate] professor of [public] health, told City News Service on Thursday. … “This is not a silver lining, per se, but it’s a fact that there will be fewer deaths for hospitalized patients this time around compared to last January. But we’re all really in a wait-and-see period, so I’m not calling the peak.”
