California coronavirus cases rise after data glitch fix
The state has begun fixing a technical glitch that caused a backlog in California coronavirus reporting. As health officials predicted, the case numbers have gone up. And while the resolution means eligible counties can begin moving off the state monitoring list, high case counts make that unlikely for many counties.
46 counties were above the state threshold as of Thursday. Some — like Merced, Stanislaus, Tulare, and Lassen — are faring worse than others. The Central Valley is being slammed by COVID-19.
