Newsom said that the state had reached a "tipping point", and that with the continued increase in hospitalizations due to the disease, the state could run out of hospital beds by Christmas.

"This is in the absence of making better decisions", he said Monday during a briefing on the pandemic. About 12% of Californians testing positive are likely to need hospital care within the next two to three weeks. "If these trends continue, our current hospitalizations could increase by 2-3 times within one month".

"Red flags are flying", said California Governor Gavin Newsom at his Monday COVID-19 online press conference, noting projections showed the number of COVID-19 patients in the state's hospitals could double or triple in the next month, and without any further interventions, ICU patients will jump up 76 percent over the next two weeks.

In Fresno County, as of Sunday, there were 56 COVID-19 patients in hospital ICUs. Of the 4,887 ICU beds remaining, 1,919 are needed by COVID cases, or 39% of available beds. It had 15 patients in 20 available beds Monday, but could quickly ramp up to handle 115 patients.

Of particular concern is the state's intensive care capacity.

Moderna's vaccine could follow a week later, Azar said, after the company announced on Monday it would apply for emergency authorization both in the United States and Europe. "(That's the) first dose with the second dose expected 3 weeks later".

The state will extend the income tax deadline by three months for small businesses that are filing less than $1 million in sales tax, according to Newsom. The California Office of the Small Business Advocate is establishing the program, he said.

With businesses already suffering, more shutdowns on the horizon, and no imminent help from Congress, Newsom and state legislative leaders announced several steps aimed at helping small business owners survive until the federal and state governments can act more broadly early next year. Non-profits would also be eligible.
