Covid-19 related policies are “guided by data” so says CA Democrat Gov. Newsom.
But the “data” provided by the state of CA to local authorities is incomplete due to a bug in the electronic system. See story in the San Francisco Chronicle.
Aptos Psychologist: How fitting. A “bug” eats away at supposed accuracy of CA Democrat Gov. Newsom’s Covid-19 policies. Newsom’s “data” requires churches to remain closed and the economy hobbled. A story in the Los Angeles Times suggests optimism and that things are actually getting better.
A Los Angeles Times analysis on Monday found that California experienced its first weekly reduction in new confirmed coronavirus cases for the first time in 12 weeks. For the seven-day period that ended Sunday, California reported 59,697 new cases, a drop of 9% from the previous week of 65,634 cases, which was a record.
If the trends continue, it would mark a turning point after weeks of record hospitalizations that began in mid-June, the result of California starting to rapidly reopen the economy in May.
California experienced its highest number of average daily COVID-19 hospitalizations about two weeks ago; for the week of July 20, there were an average of 6,969 people in hospitals statewide. That number fell last week to 6,632. The improvement was the first time in 10 weeks that California has seen such a reduction in average daily hospitalizations.
State’s coronavirus response in crisis mode, as computer glitch makes data unreliable.
Some churches ae pushing back. In San Diego, a Catholic high school that serves 700 students on a yearly basis has sued Gov. Newsom for closing the schools.
