California's feared surge of virus cases hasn't happened

SACRAMENTO, Caliber. — In late September, the administration of Gov. Gavin Newsom encouraged caution by recalling a predictive model that foresees a shock 89 percent spike in hospitalizations in the coming month, with coronavirus cases dropping and more schools and firms reopening for reopening.

It didn't exist.

Statistics suggest that hospitalizations have declined by about 15 percent after this alert, with the weekly total amount of new patients declining as other more populated states such as Florida, Ohio and Illinois experience an uptick.

The positive news in California is not enough for Newsom to adjust its "late" and "stubborn" strategy to re-opening the fifth largest economy in the world.

He again warned citizens regarding the amount of coronaviruses "excessively exuberant," suggesting a "decline in the rate of hospitalizations."

While the California hospitalization rate for 14 days has dropped, the average of 7 days has increased to 2,241 people.

It peaked at over 7,100 in July.

"Boy, what else do you need to consider as you watch the numbers start plateau?

"This weekly press conference on Monday told Newsom.

The state hospitalization on Monday has decreased in part because the State checks more individuals, allows officials in public health to monitor positives and position people in "supportive isolation," according Dr. Mark Ghaly, highest California public service health official.

But Brad Pollock, associate doctor in public health studies at California University, Davis, Medicine Department, said this indicates trends that forecast the enforcement of the coronavirus "not so nice."

"We have no mechanism that forecasts precisely what will happen next," he said.

Los Ángeles County hospitalization is a younger tendency, where 18 to 29 individuals currently account for about 10% of the entire amount of hospitalisations infected with coronavirus, relative to 5% in mid May. Barbara Ferrer, director of public health in Los Ángeles County said it was one of the worse phenomena of the country with around 10 million inhabitants.

Taken together, 18 to 49 individuals currently account for 58 percent of the county's new cases of coronavirus.

"They're also young adults who can socialize, and the youth between 12 and 50 years of age make up 68% of the number," she said.

Newsom's sluggish strategy thwarted the state's tourist sector which, despite seven months of a shutdown, is attempting to rebound. Last week, a further clarification planned for Tuesday was an end to state limits in all but ten of the 58 state counties.

Earlier in the month, for the first time the newsom administration said it was OK for up to 3 households to receive, but only if they are outside.

The Walt Diskney Co. also blamed the state for delayed re-opening regulations for themes parks and claimed it helped make the company's decision to lay off 28,000 staff of its parks in California and Florida. Newsom has not yet approved major public events or parks for subjects , particularly under reforms.

In June Newsom was told by the unions of about 10000 Disneyland workers, that it was insecure to open themed parks. Now they claim that Disney has a pilot program and steps to include personal security equipment and ventilation. Also the syndicates supporting Disney employees reversed their positions and sent Newsom a letter on Wednesday asking him to encourage them to reopen themed parks.

"We agree that Disneyland will totally re-open safely with these procedures," said Andrea Zinder, UFCW 324 Chief.

Newsom said that on Tuesday he expects to release guidelines for theme parks, hinting that he might have separate regulations for specific forms of theme parks.

"With our eyes wide open about what's occurring in the environment today," says Newsom. "We need to be alerted to this, so we can discourage any more rise in transmission." „ We have to be very careful.

Many of the United States are seeing increased levels of coronavirus cases and hospitalizations and some of the worst spikes are seen in the Midwest. The Northeast of the country had a hardest spring hit, and the tri-state area in New York, Connecticut, and New Jersey established regulations requiring travelers to quarantine in the high-rate states for two weeks.

Newsom said Monday that he did not suggest regulations identical to those for California passengers, but added that: "We are still responsive to those problems."

The addition of the number of positive testing for coronavirus in California has only surpassed 8 per cent. "The most current weekly average is 2,4 per cent." We have performed better than other nations

"We had to be tough and alert and we had to be conscious of the pandemic 's shifting nature," he added.
