There are only 9 cases in Orange County (8 travel-related and 1 person from contact with a known case). This is out of the 3.2 million residents. The massive closures and shutdowns are to flatten and lower the infectious for the spread of the disease and to make sure our hospitals are not overwhelmed. Also, the faster that we can show a decreasing number of cases of CoVid19 (the infection curve decreasing the faster we can stop the panic that is happening and resume normal living.
