California becomes the second US state to top one million Covid-19 cases, after Texas

Source: CNN

California just became the second state to surpass 1 million Covid-19 infections since the start of the pandemic -- closely following Texas, which hit the grim milestone earlier this week.

More than 5,000 new cases and 18 new deaths have been reported so far on Thursday, for a total of 1,000,631 confirmed cases and 18,126 deaths statewide, according to Johns Hopkins University data.

And health officials report that, like most other states in the country, California's Covid-19 numbers are all trending in the wrong direction.

At a November 9 news conference, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced the state recorded more than 7,200 new cases in a day and had a 7-day average of about 5,889 infections.

1. I wish they'd give per capita numbers

Of course California and Texas have big numbers, they're big states.

2. In this case the math is easy

We have 39 million people and 1 million cases. 1 in 39 Californians have had Covid-19. Texas is 29 million, so 1 in 29 have had it.
