California has the third-lowest rate of new lung cancer cases in the U.S. but lacks in early diagnosis and treatment 

California has the third-lowest rate of new lung cancer cases in the United States according to a report titled “State of Lung Cancer” released by the American Lung Association. Additionally, California trails behind in early diagnosis and treatment. Nearly a quarter of Californians diagnosed with lung cancer received no treatment.

The report also states that California screened high-risk patients at a lower rate than every state, but Nevada. Experts believe this is due to various factors including some Californians’ limited access to healthcare and medical professionals being hesitant to treat poor people who smoke more.

The Coronavirus has been declared a state of emergency in San Francisco, California 

As a result of the worldwide growing concern of the spread of the coronavirus, San Francisco Mayor London Breed has declared a coronavirus-related state of emergency.  This allows the city to increase emergency planning and increase education efforts to the public and health providers. San Francisco has now joined Santa Clara and San Diego who have issued similar decrees relating to the coronavirus.

At this time, there is no vaccine or approved medications to treat the virus. Health officials are encouraging residents to follow the same precautions in protecting themselves from a cold or the flu. These recommendations include thoroughly washing your hands, avoiding contact with sick people and covering your cough. As of Wednesday, February 26th, there have been 10 confirmed cases of coronavirus in California and a total of 59 in the United States.
