California is seen as a leading light in the fight against COVID - but do some underlying figures suggest a deeper truth?

As always the numbers won’t be exactly right.

Total cases in CA : 53,611

Fully 46% of those are in LA County.

In fact 66% of all CA cases are in the top 4 counties in CA - SOCAL specifically and have 72% of all CA deaths.

In NORCAL; San Francisco, Santa Clara, San Mateo, Marin, Alameda, Contra Costa and Santa Cruz account for just 14% of all CA cases.

Those are the six counties in the Bay Area that were the first counties in AMERICA to go into lock down. Everyone laughed at the time.
