Yesterday and today’s fatalities from COVID-19 in #OrangeCounty have been brutal: ten deaths yesterday followed by fourteen today. That’s a 27% increase in total deaths in just two days (taking us from 88 to 112 in total). Fatalities are not a good metric for tracking the trend of the disease — they are a trailing indicator rather than a leading one — but even just taken in isolation those are horrific numbers. Condolences to any and all who knew those who passed.
