Asm. Akilah Weber’s first bill pushes California to be prepared for next pandemic

By Aldon Thomas Stiles | California Black Media

As more Californians get vaccinated and new COVID-19 cases are on the decline, there's an argument to be made that the state has rounded the corner from the worst stages of the global crisis.


As of June 6, 53.1% of Californians had been vaccinated and there were 757 new COVID-19 cases, down from the 40,423 new cases on Jan. 7.


However, the worst numbers remain stark. Some 63,544 Californians have died of the disease since the beginning of the pandemic.
