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. ...

Southern California’s ICU capacity falls to 0%, an alarming sign amid deepening coronavirus surge

Southern California’s intensive-care unit bed capacity fell to 0% on Thursday, Dec. 17, an alarming nadir for the region’s healthcare system — though one that had seem like an inevitability for more than a week as the worsening coronavirus surge sapped available ICU beds daily. Thursday’s decline from 0.5% the day before was the 10th consecutive day available ICU bed capacity dropped. The metric, which state officials update daily, has become the critical marker in the fight against the coronavi...

Elections 2020: In South L.A., Maxine Waters faces GOP challenger Joe Collins for 43rd Congressional seat

The race for the 43rd Congressional District is no different. That’s where Republican Joe Collins III, a Navy veteran and South L.A. native, is running to oust Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Hawthorne, who is seeking a 16th term in Congress representing a district that stretches...
