White House sounds alarm about new COVID wave by fall or winter

The White House predicts a fall and winter wave with an expected 100 million new COVID infections.

Cases across the country are already up 50 percent in the past two weeks and hospitalizations are up 21 percent.

In Los Angeles County, 258 COVID patients remained hospitalized, an increase of 19 people since Friday. There were 94 patients hospitalized in Orange County and 38 in Riverside County due to the coronavirus. Most infections take place in the office or schools.

“We need to be on top of it. There should be no more deaths from this virus,” said Dr. David Agus, CBS News medical officer.

In addition, about two-thirds of Americans live in high- or significant-risk areas of COVID. The expected wave will be the result of Omicron subvariants, experts say.
