As California closed in on an ignominious milestone — preparing to pass New York as the state with the most coronavirus cases in the nation — the state’s leading coronavirus expert said it could be more than a month before cases begin to decrease.
During a news conference Tuesday, California Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. Mark Ghaly said that it might be four to five weeks after Gov. Gavin Newsom’s tightening of rules last Monday before cases, hospitalizations and deaths start to steadily decline.
“In no way will the governor commit to a certain date,” Ghaly said of when such a decline could be expected.
