California: Rigid Restrictions, Skyrocketing COVID-19

It’s true that business owners have suffered terribly under the lockdowns inflicted on California by bureaucrats who arrogantly disregard the restrictions they impose on others, but at least the spread of COVID-19 has been kept under control, saving lives among the elderly and those with preexisting conditions. Or maybe not:

The Southern California region reached 0% ICU capacity amid a record-breaking surge of COVID-19 cases across the state. …

On both Tuesday and Wednesday, California recorded more than 50,000 new cases of the coronavirus, according to the state’s website. For perspective, Brazil, which is experiencing one of the world’s worst COVID-19 outbreaks, recorded just over 70,500 cases on Wednesday, according to the New York Times. If California were a country, it would be among the world’s top outbreaks.

It may also be among the world’s most repressive regimes when it comes to arbitrary coronavirus restrictions. Nonetheless:

California has activated its “mass fatality” program as novel coronavirus cases and deaths continue to soar, NPR reported. …

The California Office of Emergency Services said the mass-fatality program was implemented when there were more deaths in a given time period than the local coroner or medical emergency personnel could handle.

The four most populous states include two run by authoritarian liberals and two run by pro-liberty conservatives. Let’s compare the CDC data regarding average daily coronavirus cases per 100,000 population over the past 7 days:

California: 98.6

Texas: 37.4

Florida: 48.7

New York: 60.5

Looks like you are safer in the states with lighter restrictions. The lockdowns that have destroyed so many people’s lives serve no constructive purpose.
