California is introducing tougher measures to fight the pandemic due to rising coronavirus numbers. In regions with an imminent overcrowding of intensive care units, curfews and other restrictions will be tightened, Governor Gavin Newsom announced yesterday.

In view of rising hospital admissions, the state is imposing a Stay at Home order in large parts of California. Contact with other households should be avoided.

Many non-essential businesses, including hairdressers and bars, will have to close. Restaurants may only offer food for pick-up. The number of customers in stores will be further reduced. The state must pull the emergency brake, Newsom said. In the affected regions, the order is to remain in force for three weeks initially.

Over 1.2 million cases confirmed so far
California with about 40 million inhabitants is the most populous US state. In total, more than 1.2 million infections with the SARS-CoV-2 pathogen have been detected there since the beginning of the pandemic.

According to the governor’s office, more than 19,400 people have died of coronavirus infection. In terms of population, however, the West Coast state is in a better position than many other US states.
