Monday Morning Headlines: Why Are SF’s COVID Cases So Much Higher Than Other Cities?


  • San Francisco’s high COVID case rate right now compared to the rest of the country is likely due to how cautious people here have been up until now. SF’s case rate is double that of other cities, and it’s probably because not as many people here have some acquired immunity to the virus from a previous infection and they’re going out and taking more risks.

  • Police are investigating a double-shooting that took place Monday morning near the San Jose State University campus. A man and a woman were shot, and the man reportedly suffered life-threatening injuries; the shooting was just down the block from the La Victoria restaurant where a police shooting took place last month. [KTVU]
  • McDonald’s announced that it is pulling out of Russia and selling all of its restaurants there, in the latest move by a Western company in reaction to the humanitarian crisis caused by the war in Ukraine. It’s unclear what will happen with the 850 McDonald’s locations in Russia, or how many are owned by franchisees; the company was one of the first Western entities to enter Russia 30 years ago after the fall of the Berlin Wall.

  • Following the terroristic mass shooting at a grocery store in Buffalo, New York and a shooting on Sunday at a Taiwanese church in Southern California, the mother of a Gilroy Garlic Festival shooting victim speaks out about reliving the trauma. Tammy Williams, whose son Trevor Irby was killed in the 2019 shooting, now lives not far from where the Buffalo shooting took place. [NBC Bay Area]
  • SF-based Twitch is touting the fact that it removed the live-stream of the Buffalo shooting within two minutes. [Associated Press]
  • Major BART delays Sunday morning caused by an equipment problem on a downtown Oakland track likely stymied many East Bay Bay to Breakers participants’ efforts to get to downtown SF in time for the race kickoff. [KRON4]
  • The wide open race to replace Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley has drawn four main candidates. [East Bay Times]
  • JetBlue has launched a hostile takeover of Spirit Airlines after its original takeover bid was rejected. [The Verge]
