Anaheim and Orange County continue to see rising cases as the omicron BA.2 subvariant drives new infections

BA.2, a more catchy version of omicron, makes up more than 90 percent of cases in Orange County.

The trend began on April 1 and so far is bringing steady increases in weekly cases while hospitalizations remain low. 

For the seven days through May 17, Anaheim saw 404 new cases, up from 393 a week earlier. That was part of 3,810 Orange County cases for the week, up from 3,109 a week earlier.

Vaccines and boosters remain our best tool to move beyond the coronavirus pandemic, just as widespread vaccination has helped us move past polio, measles and many other preventable diseases.
