Dr. Joseph Khabbaza with the Cleveland Clinic believes that those numbers are most likely higher due to the fact that many people have stopped reporting when they are sick, or are simply doing COVID-19 tests at home.

The expectation is cases will continue to rise, however, the positive outlook is that hospitalizations continue to be far less sever than a year ago. Dr. Khabbaza says it is night and day when it comes to the COVID-19 cases within hospitals, believing that the current strains and vaccines are sources for this.
