The state has continued to see new virus hot spots, despite the governor’s proclamation that California has bent the “curve” of new cases.

Gov. Gavin Newsom has said the state won’t ease a stay-at-home order until he sees consecutive weeks of declining hospitalizations related to COVID-19 and testing is widespread.

He wants to be able to test over 25,000 people a day, but the state has lagged behind in establishing a robust testing operation.

The State of California Friday has projected Butte County would have 76 deaths due to the coronavirus before June 1.

Doctor Andy Miller of Butte County Public Health said the data from the state is based on the Johns Hopkins University model.
