Don Thompson, reporter, Sacramento, obtained data revealing that more than 85% of the 93,000 people who signed up for the California Health Corps either didn’t have the required medical license or failed to fill out an application. Gov. Gavin Newsom had described the program as an army of volunteers to accommodate the expected massive surge of COVID-19 cases. Thompson found only about 5% of the sign-up total had been cleared to participate, and that 233 were being paid to staff an emergency hospital established in a vacant arena with no patients.
