Lol 35th really?
They have completely wrecked their economy with lock downs and shutdowns and people are fleeing the state like crazy to achieve 35th place. Bravo California for being the example of how not to do it.

I'm going to call it. The lockdowns and shutdowns in NY and CA are absolute spectacular failures.
They have the strictest measures in place and lead the nation in death and spread.
If you looked at the rest of my post and rankings, in terms of deaths per 1 million population from COVID-19 vs. the other states, 39 states were worse than CA.
In terms of daily avg deaths in the last 7 days, 34 states were worse off.
This is hardly leading the nation, at least in deaths. If you again look at https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/202 ... cases.html
under Cases and deaths by state and county, click on deaths then sort by per 100,000 for daily avg in last 7 days, here are some states that are doing MUCH worse than CA in that metric. CA has 0.6.
NV: 0.9 and so on... go through the at least 1.5 dozen states that follow before you reach CA with 0.6. NY is at 0.7. That's a far cry from NM with double the rate.
The govt can fix or help fix being broke. They can't fix people who have died. Problems with COVID-19 "long haulers" and people like in https://www.nytimes.com/2020/12/30/heal ... sions.html
are going to be serious problems down the road.
We are hardly "locked down" compared to how places like China locked people down. Over at TiVoCommunity, some of us have the same attitude as https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads ... st-5237624
. The US has given up on trying to get the situation under control without actually trying much, in effect saying "we're out of ideas". (shrug)
Besides the example that https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads ... st-5237596
of testing EVERYONE in a city in China, I'd heard of others. Here's another example: https://www.npr.org/sections/coronaviru ... -are-found
