This is another two axis chart. The solid orange line running along the top shows the number of COVID-19 hospitalizations currently in Los Angeles County. The light orange columns shows those number of patients currently in the ICU (Intensive Care Unit) and the dark orange columns shows those on ventilators. All of these counts are scaled with the right vertical axis
For any correlation purpose, the dashed lines chart the new hospitalizations (orange) and new deaths (black) each day. The corresponding dotted lines show a three day moving average trend line for these. All of these use the left vertical axis for scale.

The light and dark orange columns show the current numbers of these patients in the ICU and on ventilators, respectively. Neither sets of these show any clear pattern of behaviour yet, hovering up and down within a few percentage points.
