California is currently the state with some of the worst coronavirus numbers.
The state reported a grim new record: The number of daily deaths from the virus rose to 157. The previous high, 149, was seen on July 12.
That means the total number of COVID-related deaths in the state has now topped 8,000, with 8,027.
The state also saw a massive 12,040 new COVID infections in the prior 24 hours. That’s just below the record, set on Wednesday, Newsom which was 12,807 new cases. Newsom said this total was “the highest in the nation.”
Also on Wednesday, California had the unwanted distinction of surpassing New York as the state with the most COVID-19 infections. California’s 413,576 confirmed cases of COVID-19 topped the 408,886 seen in New York State as of Wednesday.
I’m not going to get into the weeds of these numbers and the way that Wuhan Virus cases are counted in general. The numbers that the media is using position California as having a worse crisis than any of the red states, especially Florida, that the media has been hounding. And yet the way that the media covers the pandemic in California and Florida or Texas is dramatically different.
