What about what? I didn’t mention anything about incubation period did I. The time you are tested positive and admitted to ICU, you could be dead in 14 days. The invasive ventilate is to delay your eventual demise, hence its 14 days.

For some reason, we have spiked up to 138 hospitalized patients ( ICU=68) and 3 new deaths. Our peak hospitalization number of 140 (ICU=63) was hit on 4/4. To date, there have been 25 COVID=19 deaths in OC.

Oh well, I guess we will see highs and lows before we completely trend downwards. Still, just eyeballing the figures, it looks like we have declined from 4/4-4/6.

That's a little different than what you stated, which is why I asked.

Did you read the whole thread, I mentioned ICU numbers many time. You just like to jump to conclusion. Get over it.

This is interesting, but I'm not sure why it's occurring. At 1 COVID-19 death per 100,000 people (38 deaths to date), Orange County has the lowest death rate of all the California counties listed:

The hospitalization trend seems to have been mostly on the ascent since about 4/15.

I've been following the case counts every single day since the middle of March, and there have never been more than 3 deaths in one day. Every day the figure is 3, 2, 1, or (most often) 0. There is no surge here. There is no exponential growth over a few weeks. I thought that was supposed to happen?

Also, the number of deaths of people under 55 has been holding steady at 10 for quite a while now (and there are none under age 25). Yet I am hearing more and more hysterical cries of "This virus is deadly for younger people! Young, healthy people are dying left and right! Children are dying! Babies are dying!" What's up with that?

Hospitalizations are steadily increasing instead of declining. Regarding the ugly surge that Washington predicted ("Worse than 9/11"), fortunately, it never occurred. While some young people are dying, there has been no sudden increase, and babies are not dying.

For whatever, we also have a low death rate:

From my personal observations, most people seem to be making a real effort by wearing a mask when appropriate and by social distancing.

I'll be glad when serious illnesses begin to go on a permanent decline.

I think one of the reasons why is that OC has a substantial medical system that has not been overwhelmed.



NYC, had at its peaks several thousand in icu.
