Newsom's Lockdown May Be Working according to the latest numbers

Almost exactly two weeks after California Governor Gavin Newsom announced what became a new lockdown for most of the state’s population, the daily number of new cases has fallen for five successive days. Granted, those numbers are dropping from an all-time new daily case high for the state — or any state, for that matter — of 53,711 announced last Wednesday.

Since then, numbers have dropped steadily, from a slight dip to 52,281 on Friday to the much-lower 32,659 recorded on Tuesday. That’s a 39.2% drop in less than a week and good news to beleaguered Californians.

State and local health officials have often said it would take 2-3 weeks to see the first impact of any new restrictions on daily numbers. Tuesday’s drop seems in accordance with that prediction.

4. The number of cases means nothing

without the context of how many are being tested. If the same number of tests ore being done, this is indeed good news. The real number that is important is what percentage of tests are coming up positive.

8. It's just incomprehensible

Why do the disbelievers think hundred of thousands of Americans have died?

Is that a hoax, too??

Or they'll probably say, "fake news"

Denial can be very dangerous
Denial is a coping mechanism that gives you time to adjust to distressing situations — but staying in denial can interfere with
treatment or your ability to tackle challenges. If you're in denial, you're trying to protect yourself by refusing to accept the
truth about something that's happening in your life.

10. They actually said the words "common sense".

I had to laugh out loud. They wouldn't know common sense if it fell out of a clear, blue sky and hit them on their heads. Sure they have "common sense", sure......

7. We Still Have To Deal With The Next 2 Weeks

Residents will be traveling out of state, while others will be traveling here. Any decrease may be short lived.

It's a good sign, nonetheless, but premature to think it's even close to over.
