Governor Newsom Projects 56% of California’s Population — 25.5 Million People will be Infected with Coronavirus Over 8-Week Period

California Governor Gavin Newsom

Governor Gavin Newsom projected that 56% of California’s population — or 25.5 million people will be infected with the Wuhan Coronavirus over an 8-week period.

As of Thursday, California has 950 confirmed cases of Coronavirus and 18 deaths.

Newsom asked President Trump in a letter to deploy the USNS Mercy hospital ship “to help decompress our current healthcare delivery system in the Los Angeles region in response to the COVID-19 outbreak.”

“In the last 24 hours, we had 126 new COVID-19 cases, a 21 percent increase. In some parts of our state, our case rate is doubling every four days,” Newsom wrote. “Moreover, we have community acquired transmission in 23 counties with an increase of 44 community acquired infections in 24 hours.”

Newsom continued, “We project that roughly 56 percent of our population — 25.5 million people — will be infected with the virus over an eight week period.”

Read Newsom’s full letter to President Trump:

Governor Gavin Newsom said during a press conference on Tuesday that California is considering martial law after 12 Coronavirus deaths were confirmed in the state.

Orange County on Tuesday announced severe restrictions on residents in order to ‘minimize the Coronavirus outbreak.’

The chief health officer in Orange County announced a ban on in-restaurant dining, ordered bar closures and threatened to jail people who dared walk outdoors with people who do not live in their household.

People who do not live in the same household must stay 6 feet away from each other, according to the order.

6 counties in the Bay Area are on near total lockdown.

San Francisco area residents can only leave their homes to go to the grocery store, to seek medical aide or help a family or friend in need.

To add to the insanity, homeless people are exempt from the orders and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is now releasing inmates in response to the Coronavirus panic.
