California becomes first US state to surpass 2M COVID cases

According to the latest data, a total of 2,010,004 cases of the infection and 23,651 coronavirus-related fatalities were registered in California.

Maryland: California has become the first US state where the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases exceeded 2 million, according to figures published by Johns Hopkins University.

According to the latest data, a total of 2,010,004 cases of the infection and 23,651 coronavirus-related fatalities were registered in California.

A mandatory self-isolation regime is currently in place in four out of five California regions covering over 98 percent of the state’s population. This regime was introduced due to a shortage of intensive care beds and over growing number of new cases.

On December 5, Californian authorities introduced a stay-at-home regime after the region fell below 15 percent of intensive care unit availability. Governor Gavin Newsom said earlier this week that this regime would likely be extended.
