LOS ANGELES (AP) — The surge of coronavirus cases in California that health officials have warned was coming has arrived and will worsen, Gov. Gavin Newsom said Friday, while the mayor of Los Angeles warned that by early next week his city could see the kind of crush that has crippled New York.
“We are now seeing the spike that we were anticipating,” Newsom declared while standing in front of the 1,000-bed Navy hospital ship Mercy that arrived in the Port of Los Angeles. It will take non-virus patients to free up rooms at hospitals for infection cases.
The article goes on to state the following:
Newsom said California’s cases grew 26% in one day even with the results of 65,000 tests still pending. Johns Hopkins University tallied more than 4,700 California cases Friday, with at least 97 deaths.
The report notes that Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti warned that his city could see an outbreak equal to New York City within five days if their current trend continues. The county has 10 million residents, and has seen 678 new cases of coronavirus in the past two days for a total of nearly 1,500.
“We will be where they are,” Garcetti warned, speaking of New York City. “We will have doctors making excruciating decisions. We will be trying to figure out what we do with that surge, how to get ventilators, where to find beds.”
