    That's the real problem - you and obviously majority voters in CA believe them that they care and keep re-electing them. When they actually care in the first place to be re-elected and will do and say anything for that. Occasionally them may do something positive, that could be done cheaper and faster by a private entrepreneur if various laws and regulations wouldn't mess with market economy.
    This reminds me about a lecture given by one Scripps Institute biologist. After explaining what great job they do to improve habitat, create MPLAs, and recover fish resources he politely and with smile declined to answer if they consider seals over-population and its effects on fish stocks. All is pretense and PR, no real solutions. Same is true with the CA politicians of every color and type.

    what statistic ?

    this one" ** There are an estimated 22,000 flu deaths and 36 million cases in the US each year.

    So how do these numbers compare to flu deaths in previous years? So far, it looks like the 2019-2020 death toll won’t be as high as it was in the 2017-2018 season, when 61,000 deaths were linked to the virus. However, it could equal or surpass the 2018-2019 season's 34,200 flu-related deaths.

    Sadly, both seasons will be surpassed in less than a month, not a full year. This is NOT a regular flu NOT even H1N1, Ebola, AIDS and . you name it. This IS a very deadly combination from flu+AIDS. I belive it's a bio-weapon and governments know it but hide it to reduce panic. Why Trump suddenly stopped bragging that his expert team is investigating the virus origin and insists to call it Chinese virus?

    but of course...we all know its Trumps fault,...duh

    Except for the first part, I totally agree with you. Chinese released virus, Trump has a very good reason to call it this way and to be mad at them. Just wondering what Obama would do in this situation, he was only very good in speeches, not in actions.

    Does the "SD" represent San Diego or South Dakota? San Diego doesn't have that many hospitals anymore. We have 13 within San Diego County lines...

    The worst death toll was somewhere approaching 70K. I just dont remember what year that was.. I just remember the number being issued at conference and all of our jaws dropped.

    Until this pandemic, I never knew that a referring to a bacterial virus by its place of origin could be racist.

    I'm surprised she hasn't issued a statement as to what we should be doing about the virus.
    Actually, she should be thrilled about the pandemic - hardly anyone is driving - look at the traffic maps - pollution levels have dropped - skies are clear. Actually the views looking east have been super clear.

    Going by numbers off the same #157 post of hookemdano . You are in the know. Thanks for posting and clearing it up.

    Mostly, I hope everything works out for George and his family.
