California was already in a state of disarray prior to COVID-19, drugs, homelessness, and gang violence run rampant in the streets. Now though the state is being hit hard by the virus, this is large because it is on the west coast and gets frequent travelers from the east. Many tourists who may not have known they had the virus came to visit the country before it effects were well known, this is the biggest reason it has spread across the country. The state currently has over 200 cases and experts say that there are many who are likely asymptomatic and simply do not show any signs of having the virus.
