That brings the total cases to 4,059, which includes 60 previously reported deaths.

California Department of Public Health figures show 115 people are hospitalized for the virus in Kern County, a new high. Just five counties in the state have more hospitalized COVID-19 patients than Kern. Of those hospitalizations, 44 patients are in intensive care units, the data shows. Those numbers were last updated Monday.

Also Monday, the state was reporting that Kern County had come into compliance with all the COVID-19 metrics the California Department of Public Health monitors counties for. The metrics aim to measure the rate of virus spread and the availability of hospitals to take in COVID-19 patients.

A total of 47,190 tests in Kern have come back negative, while the results of 686 are pending.

This needless suffering could have been avoided with leadership at the top. Look at the EU. Dropping cases. Trump's politicization of this virus and the safety measures needed to defeat it as proven around the world is criminal.

The other Trump in Brazil is equally as guilty.

Blood soaked hands, the both of them.

And now the European union has banned Americans from traveling there. Can't blame them.

You constantly make you and your clutch of lefties look foolish. The EU has banned travel from all countries for a while now. They are set to lift that July 1, and are discussing continuing banning travel from the US, but they are undecided at this point.

The Dems have as much “blood” on their hands, as you term it as anyone, but you and your dump trucks keep on trying to shovel your party line excrement. What strikes me as really funny, is you people are the reason Trump got elected in the first place and you can’t even comprehend why. So it wouldn’t surprise me if he gets elected again because of you whiners. Sheesh

You constantly make you and your clutch of lefties look foolish. DITTO! THE DEMS CANNOT POSSIBLY HAVE "AS MUCH" BLOOD ON THEIR HANDS. REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT, REPUBLICAN SENATE, REPUBLICAN AG, REPUBLICAN DEFENSE SEC, REPUBLICAN HEALTH SEC, REPUBLICAN KUSHNER, REPUBLICAN IRS LEADER, REPUBLICAN GOVERNORS IN TEXAS, FLORIDA, ARIZONA (WHERE VIRUS IS RAGING) REPUBLICAN SEC OF STATE, REPUBLICANS AT CDC, REPUBLICANS IN EVERY FEDERAL LEADERSHIP POSITION! HOW IS THAT DEMOCRATS? NEWSOME WAS FORCED BY REPUBLICANS AT THE STATE LEVEL TO REOPEN AND NOW WHERE IS CALIFORNIA? RAGING AGAIN BECAUSE YOU REPUBLICAN CONSERVATIVES WERE NOT CONSERVATIVE WITH AMERICAN LIVES! YOU REPUBLICANS CRIED OUT LOUD TO REOPEN AND CALIFORNIA IS SETTING RECORDS DAILY! ONLY A CONSERVATIVE CON MAN WOULD BLAME NEWSOME NOW AFTER DEMANDING LIFTING RESTRICTIONS. OH YEAH, TRUMP LOST THE POPULAR VOTE BY MILLIONS! IT IS NOT DEMS FAULT THAT THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE IS DISADVANTAGOUS. OR WE, DEMS, LIKE YOUR KING, COULD CLAIM "VOTER FRAUD" . REPUBLICAN CLOWNS.
