California Gov. Gavin Newsom Lifts Stay-At- Home Order, Southern California Has 0% ICU Beds Available

California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced he was lifting the state’s stay-at-home order even though Southern California has 0% ICU beds available in hospitals, which is officially “failing,” notes the Los Angeles Times:

KABC reports that California “health officials said the four-week projection for ICU capacity in the Southern California was expected to reach above 15%.”

Los Angeles County officials will allow restaurants, nail salons, indoor malls, barbershops and other non-essential businesses to open despite the lack of ICU beds in hospitals, and an estimated 3 million people infected with COVID-19.

Los Angeles County public health director Dr. Barbara Ferrer issued a weak warning to a city that has ignored COVID-19 science for 9 months: “This is not the time for people to think we can get back to our normal business and our normal ways of interacting with each other.”
