California reports more than 7,000 coronavirus cases, biggest daily jump so far

The California Department of Public Health reported its second straight record jump in coronavirus cases on Wednesday as the state joins a handful of others with growing case numbers.

California reported an additional 7,149 Covid-19 cases since Tuesday, a 69% increase in two days, bringing the state's total to 190,222 cases, according to the state's health department. The previous highest day jump was reported on Tuesday when the state recorded 5,019 additional new cases.

California is one of 30 states where case numbers are growing by 5% or more based on a seven-day average, a CNBC analysis of data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. The state's seven-day average of new Covid-19 cases increased nearly 46% compared with a week ago, according to Hopkins data.

While the daily case numbers are growing, Gov. Gavin Newsom said that the state performed a record number of tests, nearly 96,000 in the last 24 hours, he said. The percent of tests coming back positive has slightly increased in the last two weeks, sitting at 5.1% on a 14-day average, he said.

2. State-wide 7-day positive rate is currently 5.6%.

It was just over 4.0% Memorial Day weekend. That's more than a "slight" increase. The 14-day average won't show that for another week at least. Maybe that's why it seems to me the Governor's been slow responding lately...? In a week's time, things can change dramatically, as we're seeing.

3. And to no one's surprise, the opening is starting to be scaled back...

Closing bars in 7 counties.
