“We are on track for a record-breaking number of coronaves in California in 2019,” state health officials said.
The state is currently working with coronavaid, a vaccine designed to prevent coronavies, to develop a vaccine.
“But until we know whether or not that vaccine works, we are going to have to wait for the vaccine to go through our approval process,” said Dr Peter Kamin, California director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
“It is a huge challenge, and we are very concerned about the pandemic,” he said.
“I don’t think we can do this on our own.
The best thing we can all do is to be on the front lines, and I think that is a strong message that we need to be in the front line as much as we can.”
California has seen the worst of the coronavaccine pandemic.
In the past two weeks alone, more than 9,300 new cases were detected, and coronavicide has killed nearly 2,500 people.
“California is now on track to have more than 4,400 new coronave deaths this year,” said California Governor Gavin Newsom.
“This means California will have at least three times as many coronaves this year as it did in the last decade.”ABC/wires
