2. That chart probably contains data from a good source

But I suspect it is misleading or flawed. Maybe too short of a period.
You see a big jump in cases but no increase in hospitalization? That's not what I'm seeing all over the place.

On Dec 27th, they are at about 2,000 hospitalizations while cases are at 5,000 (and they were already dominated by Omicron)
On Jan 4th, they are still at about 2,000 hospitalizations while cases are at 19,000 ...

I do not believe that. If 1% of Omicron cases wind up in the hospital, going from 5,000 to 19,000 cases with no increase in hospitalization in the span of a week seems very suspect. Particularly when we know, they're not able to test everyone due to the load.
