SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KGO) -- In his daily press conference on California's emergency actions to beat the novel coronavirus crisis, Gov. Gavin Newsom said there were signs the curve of new infections was "bending."
"The curve is bending, but it is also stretching," said Newsom. "We are seeing a slow and steady increase but it's moderate. It's moderate because of all the actions you have taken in terms of physical distancing."
He warned the state has still not seen its "peak" in cases.
"Let us continue in that spirit to meet this moment and continue to do more to practice the physical distancing and the social distancing that are required."
On Monday, Newsom announced that California will be loaning 500 state-owned ventilators to the national stockpile to help states in need. States like New York are experiencing immediate supply shortages due to COVID-19.
