FAST FIVE: California Becomes 3rd State To Report More Than 10,000 COVID-19 Deaths: Live Updates

Published by on

It's the first time a state has seen deaths eclipse 10k since the US's 'second wave' started in June.

* * * The biggest news in the US on Friday has been brewing since at least Tuesday, when California public health official acknowledged that the country's largest testing-and-tracing effort may have accidentally undercounted cases over the past week or two, suggesting that the recent decline in new cases might be illusory.

Meanwhile, the city reported nearly 100 new cases Friday.

Fatalities jumped to 41,585 after reporting another 886 since Thursday morning.

This, despite the fact that the pace of deaths in the US once again is on the decline…though that could soon change as school reopen.
