CA Becomes First State In America To Hit 3 Million Cases Of COVID-19
On Monday, California hit a milestone no one wanted -- it became the first state to reach three million COVID-19 infections, according to the tracker from Johns Hopkins University.
California has about 40 million residents, so the number isn't particularly shocking...but the speed it took to reach three million is.
On Christmas Eve, California recorded its two-millionth case, meaning it took less than a month to add another million to the total count.
One third of all the cases in the state are here in L.A. County, which passed one million total cases this weekend, the most positive cases of any county in the country.
L.A. County aslo has the most cumulative deaths of any county in the U.S.
More than 33,000 Californians have died from COVID-19 thus far.
