Some regions are currently seeing a major spike in COVID-19 cases, and one area is Los Angeles.
On Thursday, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer touched on the topic/
She told Deadline reporters that it’s troubling to see a rise in cases and no drop in hospitalizations. While she did not call it a fifth wave, she didn’t deny the possibility of that happening.
She said she hopes it’s just a bump.
The CDC’s data shows there are 84 new causes for every 100,000 residents, up from last week.
Ferrer said in order to avoid a repeat of last winter, mask mandates could last through 2022.
