Civil Cafe: The Data Behind The Covid Surge

The highly contagious delta variant now makes up nearly all of recent Covid cases in the islands.

Predicting the future of Covid is a slippery slope, but forecast modeling can give us an idea of where we might be headed depending on current factors like vaccination rates, restrictions on public gatherings and the amount of incoming travelers. So where can we expect to go from here?

With the surge of cases, Hawaii hospitals are struggling to handle a combination of Covid and non-Covid patients, some operating at up to 125% of its capacity. How are hospitals handling the surge?

Join Civil Beat reporters Brittany Lyte and Anita Hofschneider for a discussion with Professor Monique Chyba of Hawaii Pandemic Applied Modeling Working Group (HiPAM) and Hilton Raethel, President and CEO of the Healthcare Association of Hawaii.
