By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden’s pick for health secretary, Xavier Becerra, faces two days of contentious Senate hearings.

Now attorney general of the nation’s most populous state, Becerra will be grilled by two panels. Tuesday, it’s the health committee’s turn, followed Wednesday by the Finance Committee, which w...

Valencia’s new COVID-19 lab pushes back after report of ‘significant deficiencies’

A Valencia COVID-19 testing lab that was found to have “significant deficiencies” during a  recent state inspection says it has corrected the problems and believes the facility is not in danger of closure.

The 134,000-square-foot facility was converted for its new use by the Massachusetts-based diagnostics company PerkinElmer, which operates the lab under a $1.7 bil...

Inspectors find ‘deficiencies’ at virus test lab in Valencia

By DON THOMPSON | The Associated Press Inspectors found “significant deficiencies” at California’s new coronavirus testing laboratory, problems that state officials on Monday, Feb. 22, partly blamed on the rapid ramp-up they required from the lab’s private operator under terms of a $1.4 billion contract. A fraction of 1% of the more than 1.5 million tests processed at the Valencia Branch Laboratory had problems, the state said in a preliminary report, but Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. ...

COVID Deaths Remain High In California Even As Case Rates Plummet

LOS ANGELES (AP/CBS13) — California’s death toll during the coronavirus pandemic remains alarmingly high, topping 49,000 this weekend, even as the rates of new infections and hospitalizations continue to plummet across the state. The number of patients in California hospitals with COVID-19 slipped below 7,000, a drop of more than a third over two weeks, the state Department of Public Health reported Sunday. The 6,760 new confirmed cases are more than 85% below the mid-December peak of about 54,0...

Newsom Says 7.3 Million Shots Given In California As New Vaccine Delivery System Rolls Out

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP/CBS13) – California’s new system of delivering, tracking and scheduling coronavirus vaccines is being rolled out in select counties, a first step in Gov. Gavin Newsom’s plan to smooth out what has been a confusing and disjointed rollout hampered by limited national supply. Newsom announced last month that his administration had tapped insurer Blue Shield to design and manage a centralized system to get doses out quickly and equitably. He said the state also needs robust da...

Watchdog calls for LA County nursing home crisis plan in light of ‘serious’ deficiencies, gaps 

A Los Angeles County watchdog is calling for the Public Health Department to create a nursing home crisis and response plan in light of major safety problems that surfaced during the coronavirus pandemic. Two Pasadena nursing home evacuations last year revealed “serious operational deficiencies” in these facilities that threatened the safety of residents and gaps in state and county procedures for triggering an “effective, timely and coordinated response,” according to the second interim nursing...

California Lawmaker Proposes New Law That Would Ban Fracking In California By 2027

SACRAMENTO (AP/CBS13) – Heeding the call of Gov. Gavin Newsom, Sen. Scott Wiener introduced legislation on Wednesday that would ban all fracking in California by 2027 and halt the oil and gas extraction method around schools and homes by Jan. 1. Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is a technique used to extract huge amounts of oil and gas from shale rock deep underground. It involves injecting high-pressure mixtures of water, sand or gravel and chemicals into rock. Environmental groups says the c...

California reveals data used to lift stay-at-home order

SACRAMENTO — California’s health department on Monday released to the public previously secret projections for future hospital intensive care unit capacity throughout the state, the key metric for lifting the coronavirus stay-at-home order. However, state officials did not explain how regional per capita virus cases and transmission rates that also were released might influence how much ICU space will be available in four weeks. Last week, state health officials told The Associated Press they we...

California lifts coronavirus stay-at-home orders, curfew statewide

SACRAMENTO — California lifted regional stay-at-home orders across the state Monday in response to improving coronavirus conditions, returning the state to a system of county-by-county restrictions, state health officials announced. The order had been in place in the San Francisco Bay Area, San Joaquin Valley and Southern California, covering the majority of the state’s counties. The change will allow businesses such as restaurants to resume outdoor operations in many areas, though local officia...

US Surpasses 25 Million COVID Cases – Now It’s A Race Between Vaccines And Variants

SACRAMENTO (CNN/CBS13) – It took just over a year for the United States to go from one to 25 million coronavirus infections. That’s an average of about 67,934 new infections every day, or an average of one new infection every 1.2 seconds since January 21, 2020. As infections kept soaring this weekend, so did the death toll. As of Sunday, more than 419,000 people have died from the virus in the United States, according to Johns Hopkins University. The US death toll could reach 569,000 by May 1, a...

Age May Be Priority Above All For California COVID Vaccinations

SAN FRANCISCO (AP/CBS13) — Advocates for farmworkers, teachers, grocery store clerks and other essential workers are worried they will have to wait until this summer to be vaccinated against the coronavirus as California considers giving priority to older residents. State officials said the move makes sense given older people have a much higher rate of hospitalization and death from COVID-19, and with the state experiencing struggles with vaccine distribution, vaccinating all over the age of 65 ...

Californians To Vote In 2022 On Banning Sale Of Flavored Tobacco Products

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP/CBS13) — Californians will vote in 2022 on whether the state should ban the sale of flavored tobacco products, including flavored vaping cartridges. Lawmakers approved the ban in 2020, but a referendum qualified Friday, meaning voters will have their say in November 2022. In the meanwhile, the law won’t take effect. Major tobacco companies backed the referendum in hopes of overturning the law. The ban prohibits the sale of flavored tobacco products but does not criminalize...

Even With Fewer Drivers On The Road, New Report Finds Risky Driving And Fatal Crashes Surged In 2020

(CNN) — The Covid-19 pandemic has forced many Americans to stay home and stay put. But even though fewer people were driving during the first six months of the pandemic, riskier driving surged, leading to a troubling uptick in fatal crashes, preliminary data shows. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) released a report on Americans’ driving habits from March to September 2020 and found some disturbing trends. Traffic deaths rose, fewer drivers and passengers wore their seat...

5 vaccination mega-centers open in L.A. County today – but are there enough doses to stock them?

Fueled by an increasingly uncertain supply of much-coveted coronavirus vaccines, Los Angeles County aimed to roll out five new large-scale vaccination centers, all at high-profile settings around the region, on Tuesday, Jan. 19. The array of new vaccination centers will be in addition to the giant parking-lot clinic at Dodger Stadium — perhaps the largest vaccination site in the nation — and 75 smaller sites the county is already operating. Though all the sites are quite recognizable to Southlan...

Data from John Hopkins University on Monday showed the nation’s most populous state has recorded more than 30,000 deaths since the pandemic started nearly a year ago. Deaths have exploded since a COVID-19 surge began in October. It took California six months to record its first 10,000 deaths. But in barely a month, the total rose from 20,000 to 30,000.

State Desperate For More Medical Workers As California Health Corps Volunteers Dwindle

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP/CBS13) — California desperately needs more medical workers at facilities swamped by coronavirus patients, but almost no help is coming from a volunteer program that Gov. Gavin Newsom created at the start of the pandemic. An army of 95,000 initially raised their hands, and just 14 are now working in the field. Very few volunteers actually met qualifications for the California Health Corps, and only a tiny sliver has the high-level experience needed to help with the most ser...
