California spike

Virus notes: June 17, 2020 -- Spike in Merced

MERCED (BLJ) – Merced County Public Health Department on June 17 reported 518 cases and eight deaths (and increase of one). Merced no longer reports the number of new cases – just another example of the omnipresent flak or PR or “public informationing” endemic to American government from the lowest to highest levels. It is an increase of 109 cases in four days, possibly as many as 73 between June 16 and June 17.
