California, the recent epicenter of the Wuhan flu pandemic, lifted an order requiring people to stay at home on Jan. 25, according to Gavin Newsom Governor, although the state still tops the United States in cases of infection and death. .

Mr Newsom said the harsh restrictions will be lifted as recent numbers show California is coping well with the epidemic.
California Governor said he expected the next 4 weeks the Wuhan flu will decrease significantly. “We expect the number of hospital admissions as well as the need to use the special care room to decrease and decrease even more. That’s why we are lifting our home stay orders, which go into effect immediately today. ”
The home stay order has been in place for most regions of the state, according to the California Department of Public Health. The state will also lift curfew from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.
The increasing trend in infection rates, hospitalization and ICU capacity, as well as immunization capacity, were contributing factors in the decision to lift the order, officials said.
Mark Ghaly, secretary of California’s Human Services and Health Department, said: “California is slowly starting to emerge from the most dangerous outbreak of this pandemic, which is the light at the end of the tunnel that we were expecting.”
Deregulation of home stay rules will allow businesses such as outdoor dining to resume in the country’s most populous state.
Still, even as trends improve, California has averaged more than 31,000 new cases every day for the past two weeks and continues to be the state with the highest number of cases in the country. On January 21, this state had a record 764 deaths in the day.
Similar to California, New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo recently told reporters, saying the New York restriction could soon be lifted.
Governor Cuomo said the number of positive cases and hospital admissions were on the decline, allowing officials to “begin correcting.”
However, the latest figure on January 25 shows that New York still has more than 13,000 new infections a day, second only to California and Texas.
Other regions that have eased restrictions since Joe Biden took office include Chicago, Michigan and Washington – states controlled by the left.
