There are 33 confirmed coronavirus cases in California and 8400 people are being monitored as possible cases of Coronavirus. Most of the confirmed cases were people who caught it on the Diamond Princess cruise ship.
Newsom said his top priority is expanding the ability to do tests for the virus, saying the state currently only has and inadequate 200 testing kits.
He said his team spoke to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Thursday and they assured the state that many more tests will soon be made available.
Statistically, if there were a million people infected with Coronavirus in China in urban areas then the rate would be 0.2%, then the expectation would be that 16 of the 8400 people would be infected. It clearly is prudent to monitor and contain as much as possible.
