California COVID-19 Cases Starting To Decline
Sacramento, CA — After spiking over several weeks, California has started to see a modest drop in new COVID-19 cases.
Governor Gavin Newsom says the average weekly number of positive tests is currently 7,764, compared to 9,900 a week ago.
The seven-day rate of tests coming back positive statewide had peaked at nearly 8% in late July but has now fallen to 6.1%.
However, Newsom warned that no changes would be coming soon to business sectors which recently had to scale back operations because the state will be dealing with the virus until a vaccine or treatment is identified.
Newsom stated that his biggest concern is currently the Central Valley, which is still seeing a growing number of new cases, while most other regions of the state seem to be stabilizing.
