The Latest COVID-19 Numbers for State of California 6,932 Cases,150 Deaths

Sacramento, CA...The California Department of Public Health today announced the most recent statistics on COVID-19. California now has 6,932 confirmed cases and 150 deaths. For more information on COVID-19 and California's response visit the California Department of Public Health website.

Testing in California
As of March 30, approximately 86,100+* tests had been conducted in California. At least 28,704 results have been received and another 57,400 are pending. These numbers include data California has received from commercial, private and academic labs, including Quest, LabCorp, Kaiser, University of California and Stanford,and the 22 state and county health labs currently testing.

***This week’s cumulative testing numbers are lower than last week due to an inadvertent over-reporting error discovered by one of the private labs.

How People Can Protect Themselves
Every person has a role to play. Protecting yourself and your family comes down to common sense:
  • Staying home except for essential needs/activities.
  • Practicing social distancing.
  • Washing hands with soap and water for a minimum of 20 seconds.
  • Avoiding touching eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Covering a cough or sneeze with your sleeve, or disposable tissue. Wash your hands afterward.
  • Avoiding close contact with people who are sick.
  • Staying away from work, school or other people if you become sick with respiratory symptoms like fever and cough.
  • Following guidance from public health officials.
What to Do if You Think You're Sick
Call ahead: If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough or shortness of breath) and may have had contact with a person with COVID-19, or recently traveled to countries with apparent community spread, call your health care provider before seeking medical care so that appropriate precautions can be taken.

More information about what Californians can do to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is available on the California Coronavirus Response website.

California continues to issue guidance on preparing and protecting California from COVID-19. Consolidated guidance is available on the California Department of Public Health Guidance Documents web page.​

So this virus has a 0.5% to 0.7% fatality rate. Same order of magnitude as the flu. Why are we putting ourselves into a recession? Oh, that's right... some people are afraid of their own shadow!

    Wrong! The rate for flu infection is 0.1%. Most estimates for the coronavirus infection rate are 1-2%, not the numbers you quote.

    Without mitigation, shelter in place orders most estimates for deaths in our country are 1,500,000 to 2,200,000 dead.

    Those are not sheep, those are dead human beings.

    Would that be enough dead humans to justify saving your precious economy?

    People like you are disgusting.

    While about 0.1% of people who get the flu die, the coronavirus' global death rate is about 4.7%, based on the current numbers of cases and deaths. However, the death rate of the coronavirus fluctuates constantly and varies strongly by country — in Italy, it was above 11% as of Monday, while it was 1.8% in the US.

    Death rates of both the flu and the coronavirus vary widely between age groups — the two seem to be most fatal in people over 65 years old.
