Seems like the number of Covid-19 deaths in the State of California has hit a ceiling that doesn’t want to go down in number of cases has not become evident at being sustainable and declining. In seven days unfortunately an additional 503 people perished from the virus. It’s actually the second highest weekly death toll from this pandemic.
Actually last week the mortality didn’t change much as the death the week before was 495 souls lost.
And try to that it didn’t look so good either with at least 540 deaths that week.
As it stands the death toll was more than 79,000 as of this Monday morning. What an incredible amount that has climbed steadily since the last three months. Being the number one death toll for disease in California. It actually surpassed last year’s flu season killing 34,000 people in the one prior to that killing 61,000 people.
Although the public seems to be growing weary at the stay-at-home orders from our governors instructions. This may move us back and slow us down if we don’t respect the CDC’s policies. We will see an explosive increase when mobility in the number of states increases and that will translate into that’s and more cases going into the ICU. We should know and get a better idea within two weeks.
However there are projected death tolls in they are increasing from 100,000 237,000 based on new models.
Starting to open up at a fast and dangerous pace, can can bring a spike and that’s. This could hurt the economy further and shatter public opinion in confidence. It seems like the majority of us wants to move slower than what the White House is requesting now.
Although California’s death toll is much lower than Inc. New York with over 26,000 dead in New Jersey with more than 9000. It seems like Californians are not getting as infected as quickly as states from the East Coast.
Many in the medical field have the same opinion and as long as the people getting infected goes up it will not end. It’s got to come down before we start seeing an end to this Viral pandemic.
Not careful, we may be headed for potentially very large up cycle of people falling sick by this Fall. Perhaps pale by comparison with what are dealing with now.
Fearing children can further spread the disease when they return to school in September. It could slow us up even more.
It seems like the theory out there goes when the economy opens up we will see more people die.
Hence we need to be careful and keep on wearing complaint medical grade PPP for civilian population. With a compliant N95 mask or surgical 4 ply mask you can assure yourself that you can be safe along with the addition of safety glasses to protect aerosol reaching your eyes too.
We are all in this together and if we respect CDC’s policies, reduce encroachment, we will all do better for ourselves and those we love.. It will be slow but at least upward.
Peace and Good luck to all.
