California has lowest virus case rate in the entire U.S.

Months after a coronavirus surge sickened hundreds of thousands of people, left thousands dead and pushed hospitals to their breaking point, California’s virus case rate is now the lowest of any state in the nation, federal figures show.

Although the distinction doesn’t lessen the heavy toll exacted by the fall-and-winter wave, it does demonstrate the tremendous strides the state has made in its fight against the COVID-19 pandemic — progress that, to this point, has not been interrupted even as the state more widely reopens its economy.

California’s latest seven-day rate of new cases was 32.5 per 100,000 people, according to data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Over that same period, Hawaii had the second-lowest rate, at 36.8, and the nationwide rate was 114.7. California has for weeks reported one of the lowest case rates in the nation — though the top spot had remained largely out of reach.

But Republicans are about to spend $400 Million of California taxpayer money to try to recall CA Governor Newsom for implementing health measures that got us to this better place.

3. Only if Democrats GOTV

The recall will be held in an off year and republicans will be highly motivated. The best thing that can be done is to get another initiative on the ballot that is popular with democrats and independants.

5. Yep, but what attractive initiative? Pot's already legal in CA and we passed a min wage increase.

6. How about an initiative to increase the amount of signatures needed to get an initiative on ballot?
