Coronavirus infection rate hits unprecedented levels in California and officials worry how bad it will get – Los Angeles Times

A sign on a Muni bus in San Francisco advises that passengers are required to wear masks. For the seven-day period that ended Friday, an average of 10,981 people in California were reported to be infected daily — a number that has more than doubled in just the last two weeks. That is even worse than the peak in the summer, which until now had been California’s worst spike of COVID-19, according to a Times data analysis.

For the first time, California has recorded three days in the last week where more than 13,000 new infections a day have been recorded.
