California Shows Signs Of Potential New Surge Of Virus Cases

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – California’s governor says the state is showing signs of a potential new surge of coronavirus cases. Gov. Gavin Newsom said Monday that could prompt another shutdown of businesses and further delay school reopenings. The number of new cases in California has improved over the last few weeks, but Newsom said he is concerned about the “reproduction number” in several highly-populated areas. A number greater than one means the virus is spreading. The “R number” is close to one in the San Francisco Bay area and in parts of Southern California. Still, the Newsom administration plans to lift virus restrictions in more counties on Tuesday.
