Recently, the COVID-19 epidemic in the United States has worsened, and the situation in California, the most populous state in the United States, has not been optimistic.
At present, the state has more than 1.3 million confirmed cases. Local officials said that according to the relevant regulations announced by California Governor Newsom a few days ago, many places in California will implement new ones from the evening of the 6th local time. “Stay-at-home order”.
The California government has divided California into five geographical regions. When the proportion of critical care beds in any area is as low as 15% or less, that is, at least 85% of intensive care beds are in use, the region will begin to implement a stay-at-home order.
Southern California, the most populous of the five regions, reported on the 5th that only 12.5% of intensive care beds were available in the region, and only 8.6% of intensive care beds were available in the other area.
According to the regulations, the two areas will implement “stay-at-home orders” from the evening of the 6th local time for at least three weeks, affecting about 27 million people. During this time, people should stay at home except for necessary activities, and some commercial facilities will be closed.
