Has CA at the top, also NY's official numbers are closer to this site.

If things continue as they are, by the end of today, NY will be knocked down from its top spot in number of cases.
Number of cases are irrelevant when comparing to NY. Try to compare fatality rate.

Also irrelevant. There are no numbers that can be compared, because they share no common circumstances. The variables aren't equal.

You can't compare positive numbers between CA and NY since at its peak, most in NY weren't tested

Is there a website which shows states' numbers to correspond with this?

This is based upon a seven day rolling average, of positive tests in excess of 10%, or number of positive cases exceeding 10 per 100,000 residents.

Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

WHO is saying COVID19 won't be seasonal. https://twitter.com/i/events/1288401164300480513

Based on their track record, I guess that means watch out this fall!
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I think the difference this time is air conditioning. 
Traditionally, once the summer heat started, people congregated outdoors, or with the windows open and fans blowing. 
This time, the heat drove us all indoors to A/C.  This replicated the conditions  usually found in Fall as the cold drove people back indoors. A/C is increasingly available even in poorer countries.

It's been a while since this was discussed, but over the weekend I heard about 2 people who were severely neglected in the early days of coronavirus.

One is my cousin who was rushed to Monmouth hospital for an induction so she didn't have time to pack up or prepare. Her husband was home sick with corona, and she forgot her phone charger at home so she had no contact with the outside world. After not eating during the whole L&D process, it took another 30 hours before she got any food. They claimed there was no kosher food available, but she didn't get the "non-kosher" dairy food even though she asked for it and would have eaten cholov stam which she otherwise would never eat.

The second was in NY hospitalized with corona, when the nurse came in on Monday morning to write her name and the day on the  board, he asked for water and was told they will bring him water. The next time someone came in was Tuesday morning again to write her name and the day on the board, he again asked for water and was told they would bring it. Later that day, left with no choice he took a bottle of alcohol that was left in the room, crawled to the toilet, sanitized the toiled with the alcohol, and drank out of the toilet.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Until the next change.
