While California is slowly opening up for Phase 2, not every county is in the same situation. For example, Santa Clara is seeing the most significant decrease in the number of new cases, stepping down as the country with the second most number of total confirmed cases.
Alameda is the new #1 with a total of 3,195 confirmed cases and its impact is immediately seen in many hospitals in the county. Washington Hospital is one of them, and we are hearing that the number of patients are increasing at the highest rate there. Many of the patients these days are actually the most vulnerable as most of them are the seniors coming from nursing homes with worsening symptoms.
Again, thank you for serving the community with such a great courage and tenacity.
