Something that seems odd is unusual stability in the number of new cases per day. 218 on Wednesday, 216 on Thursday, and 213 for Friday.

Keep the sheep in their places. No school, no jobs, no church, no natural physical interactions, no parties or concerts or weddings or funerals, turn off the water and electricity, point the finger, turn on one another. The government is showing they care about us, it’s for our own good, they won’t lie to you, they don’t want us to get sick…..Line up!

Ilovepopcorn August 10, 2020 at 3:38 AM

That damn government! Ha ha! Took everything away for no reason. Just to make us feel weaker by the day! Well to heck with the dumb government! I am going to take back my personal freedoms. No masks, going to parties, and finally going to barbecue on Spare the Air days. I will fix those political bullies. Yep let’s ban together and give the government the finger while we kill everyone by not following their stupid mandates.

Kauai Mike August 8, 2020 at 2:13 PM

well, at least they admit they are clueless and the numbers useless.

KingOfC August 8, 2020 at 2:58 PM

Going up 200 a day and people want everything opened back up, this ain’t Newsom’s fault, this ain’t Trumps fault, it’s idiots that don’t think this virus is real fault!

Sam August 8, 2020 at 3:35 PM

That’s good. We should be hitting heard immunity any day. Obviously it’s not a politicians fault. When given the opportunity, Gavin is to authoritarian for my blood. His time will come. Can you tell me what’s closed other then the local rub and tug?? I just got a haircut yesterday. Schools are a whole different political issue. Reality check..everything is open but church’s and schools, the places we go to vote…smh and this ain’t political..sure

You can think the virus is real and that Newscum and Dumpster are at fault for failing to handling this event and for using this virus and have used it as a political tool.

I believe the virus is real.

I believe Dumpster and Newscun should be removed from office effective immediately as they care about their own political positions and posturing more than the citizens of this country/state.

I believe that this virus has been overinflated by the above mentioned political failures and by own media.

Me August 8, 2020 at 9:10 PM


I don’t think you understand what KingOfC said. This person is stating. Why should we open things back up when we hit record numbers right when we open back up? It’s people like you which is causing shut downs. Not Gavin’s fault. He is just trying to contain this. You want to blame ours but not yourself. You said before. We need to open up now. I responded, No because it’s going to get 10x worse. You said no it’s not. We are fine. I was right and I told you I would come back and tell you. Right when we open. Look at the numbers. We were around 30+ deaths before the reopen. Not we are almost at 140. In just over a month 100 people died. Our total cases have SKY ROCKETED. You want to reopen things even more? No, And reality check. Everything is NOT open. So many places have closed there doors for good because people can’t wear a mask and just stay inside. You know that if people would have just listen and stayed in for 2-3 weeks. This would have most likely been over? Think about that.

Sam August 8, 2020 at 10:11 PM

You’re wrong. I wish I could look at the numbers. All the numbers. I can’t, you can’t. I never said it was Gavins fault. Don’t put words in my mouth.

Sideline August 8, 2020 at 3:59 PM

Don’t be fooled by their numbers….the numbers are not real! Not sure why they still publish them.

nytemuvr August 8, 2020 at 4:08 PM

@Sam…I herd that too.

Politics August 8, 2020 at 4:26 PM

Help me understand. If this is so political why is COVID-19 worldwide?

dude August 8, 2020 at 6:48 PM

Try “New World Order” and ESPECIALLY id2020.org (If you haven’t see this site before, it will make you go hmmm….

Sam August 8, 2020 at 7:35 PM

Geopolitical..it’s a geopolitical virus. That’s why the WHO tried to tell US citizens what to do..that’s why Trump pulled us out of the WHO. You didn’t think politics stopped at our borders did you?

Tugboat August 8, 2020 at 5:21 PM

Hey CoCo Health. What your doing is not working. Collecting numbers, blanket edicts, and passing on Gavin’s misinformation is useless.

Let’s do something proactive, like targeting the hardest hit areas with education, mitigation, and enforcement if necessary. You have the numbers.
Antioch………….36 new cases yesterday…………….Total 1,153 cases
Concord………..43 new cases yesterday…………….Total 1,070 cases
Richmond……..30 new cases yesterday…………….Total 1,845 cases
Pittsburg……….31 new cases yesterday…………….Total 876 cases
Give these people all the help they need to combat and overcome the virus.
While you are at it, get in there and help the Long Term Healthcare Facilities and the elderly confined therein.

chuckie the troll August 8, 2020 at 5:51 PM

You will notice that no “health official” has the honesty or integrity to discuss the side effects of these Orwellian control measures. No other therapy or medication could remain in use if the side effects were this severe!

The Observer August 8, 2020 at 5:56 PM

A major way the virus is being transmitted now is through indoor social gatherings. There can’t be many people now who haven’t heard this. Still, they continue to have birthday parties for their kids with their extended families and friends, wedding showers, gender reveal parties, well-attended weddings and funerals, quinceaneras, and just plain “We’re tired of dealing with the pandemic” parties. Since people are unlikely to change this behavior, we can expect the virus to continue to burn through the population until we finally have an effective vaccine.

Sam August 8, 2020 at 8:20 PM

Everyone has heard, nobody cares. Nobody’s taking the vaccine. It’s a good cure for over population. Think of it like this , only the “stupid” people will die. All the smart people who listen to the doc will inherit the world. 🙄

Me August 8, 2020 at 9:15 PM


Just because you are against the vaccine doesn’t mean other are. Saying nobody cares is 100% wrong. Most people in the world would probably jump at the chance to get it then people who wouldn’t Spreading false data is wrong. I get you like Trump but don’t be like him.

You say, Only stupid people will die? No, Stupid people kill the innocent. Like what you will do. Most people who seem to get sick the most are people who got it from OTHERS.

Sam August 8, 2020 at 10:22 PM

No most people will not be jumping to get a vaccine. Nobody cares. Don’t tell me how to act or what to do. You worry about yourself. I’ll be doing whatever I want. I haven’t heard one person say they would take a vaccine.

R August 8, 2020 at 7:06 PM

Post the same-time-frame numbers for cancer and heart disease so we sheep can put this in perspective.

Make Orwell Fiction Again !

Name here August 9, 2020 at 12:14 AM

What the hell is up with all those people Saturday evening in the kmart parking lot? Hella cars hella people no masks?

Stop look and listen August 9, 2020 at 4:50 AM

Am I misunderstanding Clayton’s new cases?
There’s 8 since yesterday and 7 last 14 days. Shouldn’t there be at least 8 for last 14 days?

Appalled August 9, 2020 at 10:29 AM

That’s a zero, not an 8.
