JAY THOMAS, San Clemente
Your COVID-19 update figures for San Clemente were simply awful.
Going all the way back to last March (10 months), over one-third of all cases and deaths in San Clemente occurred in just the last 30 days.
So, I was surprised to see in your explanation of the lifting of the stay-at-home order that for the first time in many months, there was “broad optimism” about the coronavirus metrics.
What a difference a new administration makes in how news is covered. It’s a miracle.
