The latest projections for what Texas could be facing when it comes to COVID-19 hospitalizations are troubling.
The University of Texas COVID-19 Modeling Consortium regularly publishes graphs showing what to expect in the near future based on today’s trends. Its latest update shows the number of hospitalizations and ICU patients skyrocketing in September.
Spencer Fox is associate director of the consortium. He told Texas Standard that Texas is facing a surge at least as large, and possibly larger, than last winter’s surge – what many considered to have been the “peak” of the pandemic so far.
