The Irvine one was crowded. I haven’t been for a while.

There’s no surge in OC. There’s 3.5 in million population and 500+ positives. That’s extremely low numbers

To surge: intransitive verb: to rise or move rapidly.

The verb has nothing to do with the population of a county. They're referring to an increase of confirmed cases in 24 hours, which is what they meant by “the number of confirmed infections surged to 502.”

I am not at all trying to make light of the situation by stating that if 37 people in Orange County were diagnosed with CV yesterday and 42 today, it's stretching things to call today's new cases a "surge."

On three consecutive days last week, the new cases numbered 64, 68, and 81. We are running well below those numbers now.

It's a double-edged sword. The longer it takes to reach the peak, the longer the whole state has to stay on lockdown, and the less will be left when we finally get out.

Yes, some lives are being saved by this method. I get that. But "flattening the curve" is not all sunshine and roses by any means.

You are right, the surge was 3/28 to 3/29, over 200 new cases, the last few days they are in the 30s for new cases, not exactly surge. It’s plateauing. Maybe the surge in death, possibly come from previous cases before 3/28.

Yeah, but we could be New York. In a few weeks, things might be easing. It’s hard to know what to do, but I think it’s best to keep the casualties low. I rather Newsom overestimate than underestimate the situation.

I'm confused as to where in that poster's linked article there is any reference to this method being easy.
