California discloses math behind easing stay-at-home order

first_imgSACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California’s top health official has revealed the math behind the state’s calculation that it is safe to lift remaining stay-at-home orders. He responded Tuesday to criticism that Gov. Gavin Newsom’s administration wasn’t releasing key data affecting people’s lives and livelihoods. Officials used six formulas to project that every part of the state will top 15% capacity in its intensive care units in four weeks. Rajiv Bhatia, an affiliated professor of medicine at Stanford University, was among several infectious disease experts who said the state’s formulas generally appear reasonable but leave out many potential variables.last_img
