State: Expect COVID-19 hospitalizations to double by late October (San Francisco Union Tribune)

San Diego Union Tribune: State: Expect COVID-19 hospitalizations to double by late October. “Based on the trajectory of trends that the state is observing, the [health and human services] secretary added, the state now expects the number of COVID-related hospitalizations across California to double over the next month, climbing from a current total of about 2,500 statewide to about 4,800 in late October. While hospitals across the state have shown they can handle significantly larger numbers of COVID-19 patients, the executive said such a trend would be even more concerning, given that flu season is now under way, and that disease perennially causes increased hospital admissions and emergency department visits.”
