Newsom Considers Second Wave Lockdown After COVID ‘Surge’


California reported a record number of new confirmed coronavirus cases overnight — 7, 149, according to Kron4.

That means that California shattered its own record for a single-day count, dating back just to Monday, when it reported over 6,000 new infections, according to the LA Times.

In fact, ABC7News reports, that’s a 69% increase in cases in two days. ICU hospitalizations rose by 18% in the past 14 days. 

Gov. Gavin Newsom said in a press conference that California has completed over 1 million tests in the past two weeks, with a current positivity rate of 5.1%. Last week, according to ABC7News, the positivity rate was 4.6%.
