California Reports Lowest Number of New Coronavirus Cases Since May

California, once the epicenter of the pandemic in the US, today reports the lowest number of positive cases since mid-May.

The positive coronavirus cases today are 1,616, while the lowest daily number was in mid-May, 1,365 new cases.

Labs and testing sites were closed during Labor Day, so obviously, fewer tests were performed.

According to Dr. Barbara Ferrer, Los Angeles Health Director, the low infection rates are a result of fewer tests, and we shouldn’t put our guards down.

The extreme heatwave and the wildfires are also affecting the number of tests, however, Gov. Gavin Newsom said that California’s positivity rate is “encouraging.”

The weekly positivity rate of the state is 3,6%, while the 14-day average is 4%.

California has a total of 739,527 coronavirus cases, and 13,841 have lost their lives.

All in all, the state’s numbers are improving, and we can see by the end of this week if the decline happened due to Labor Day closures or not.

The state’s officials seem to be optimistic about the numbers, and we can only wait and see in which direction will COVID-19 keep moving.
