California braces for second coronavirus wave even as first wave is far from over

Health experts have long warned of a potential second wave of the coronavirus as the economy reopens. But while other states have seen the first wave fade, the Golden State continues to see cases rise at a rapid clip.over the past five days, according to Johns Hopkins University.

“If we do see an uptick in cases in a couple of weeks from now, it will likely mean that there has already been two to four weeks of increasing transmission by that time,” said Dr. Christina Ghaly, director of health services of L.A. County. “So at this point, we could be in the midst of a new upward curve, or transmission may not have increased at all. We just don’t know yet.”Experts are already worried about the potential for new surges of disease as California reopens.

The rise in cases comes as weekly hospitalizations and deaths are down statewide. There has been a 10% drop in the average number of people hospitalized daily with confirmed or suspected coronavirus infection last week compared to a month ago, from 4,859 on the week of April 27 to 4,392 last week.And the number of weekly deaths statewide last week fell 19% to 418; the week before, it was 515.

Dr. Fauci said on MSNBC a week ago today that no second wave is coming and the masks are a sign of unity. Your publication is trash.

Yeah...Americans seem to really care about social-distancing these days. Where are all those fascist democrat leaders arresting people for going to work?!

Hahahah comedy. Right on cue. There is no 2nd wave, there isn’t even a virus left to talk about.

U.K. government's impatience with lockdown risks a second wave of the coronavirus, scientist warnsThe U.K. is still at coronavirus alert level 4, meaning transmission is high or rising exponentially, but the country — which has been in lockdown since late March — eased some of its lockdown restrictions on Monday. I guess the silver lining to the whole thing is we will find out in 14 days if the rona was a hype job/clickbait or not. If there’s fuck tons of dead radical leftists we will know it was real... if not... Can we at least reopen the gym. Shit If they open now when it is no safer than when the lockdown started, doesn’t that mean the lockdown was a waste of time and should have just social distanced? It would be better if they just said: “we can’t afford the lockdown anymore so we are going to gamble” I don't care and I will not be shamed into lock down ever again after witnessing the media blatant bias this weekend

Experts warn protests could accelerate second wave of coronavirusAs people gather to protest the death of George Floyd, a new report shows that social distancing is the most effective way to keep coronavirus from spreading. But just make sure there’s no church services for over 10 people. They only started 'warning' about this yesterday, after a week of hounding by non-experts like myself. Before that their silence was deafening. They've thrown away all their credibility trying to be on the 'right side' of a social media issue. Gatherings for me but not for thee. But just don’t go in the beach water or fo to a funeral of a loved one
