SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — After a months-long coronavirus surge, California is starting to see signs of hope even as the state warns people to keep up their guard.
The number of new COVID-19 cases reported Tuesday was just over 12,000, the lowest daily figure since November.
Hospital capacity is rising after plunging so low in December that overwhelmed facilities talked about rationing care. But the state's top health officer, Dr. Mark Ghaly, says another surge is still possible.
He says people shouldn't risk creating a "super-spreader" event by holding big Super Bowl parties this weekend.
