Coronavirus news, updates, hotspots and information for 05-23-2020 COVID-19 AM Alert

052320 This is Coronavirus 411, the latest COVID-19 info and new hotspots… Just the facts… for Saturday May 23rd, 2020. Speaking at a White House press conference Friday, Dr. Birx said the Washington DC Metro has the highest rate of people testing positive in the country. Because the metro includes Washington DC and counties in Virginia and Maryland, the overall count of the area can be misleading. Washington DC proper, has the 5th highest case count with 1,118 per 100,000 residents. But add in the counties that comprise the metro area and according to Dr. Birx, it takes the top spot. The DC Metro accounts for 60% of average daily infections for The District, Maryland and Virginia, reports The Washington Post. Virginia and Maryland began easing restrictions last week, but both state’s kept restrictions in place for counties nearest the Washington DC metro. The CDC revealed that it has been combining tests for active COVID-19, with tests for the antibody. This can be misleading as antibody tests do not test for current infection or indicate if someone is contagious, just that they had been previously exposed. Speaking to the press Friday, President Trump said that houses of worship are essential and should “open right now”. And that he will “override the governors” if states do not allow them to reopen. The Vice President said negotiations for another stimulus package are “actively underway”. For the first time since March, more than 300,000 passed through airport security yesterday. Parts of Long Island and some other New York City suburbs may start reopening next week, if virus metrics continue to decline. Miami will reopen beaches and hotels to visitors on June 1st. The President of Brazil says quarantines and lockdowns will be more detrimental to the economy than the virus. Nearly 20,000 new cases were logged there yesterday. Brazil has the third highest case count in the world. Peru has extended their “state of emergency” through the end of June. China reported zero deaths due to COVID-19 on Saturday. The locations of hotspots and U.S and Country diagnoses in a moment. Hotspots displaying faster rates of growth as of May 22nd, according to The New York Times: Tajikistan, Venezuela, Haiti, South Sudan, Central African Republic, Nicaragua, Yemen and Mauritania. There have been 1,602,148 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the United States and 96,013 deaths. There were 23,310 new cases reported yesterday. The 10 states with highest case counts: New York 362,991, New Jersey 152,719, Illinois 105,710, Massachusetts 90,889, California 90,801, Pennsylvania 70,305, Texas 54,369, Michigan 53,865, Florida 49,443, Maryland 44,539.

052220 This is Coronavirus 411, the latest COVID-19 info and new hotspots… Just the facts… for Friday May 22nd, 2020. The U.S. recorded over 25,000 new cases yesterday and 1,314 deaths. 6 states show a rise in cases over the last two weeks, including one that seemed relatively safe earlier in the outbreak. Maine reported their highest two-day total since the outbreak began. They have 1,877 confirmed cases, 136 of those were reported in the last two days. The state has been fairly aggressive with restrictions. The statewide stay at home order is in effect until June 1st, though some personal care business were allowed to reopen on May 1st. A 14-day quarantine for anyone entering the state remains in effect through August. So why the jump? According to the Maine government website, the state increased testing on May 18th. Allowing health care providers to test anyone they suspected of having the virus. A grant from the CDC will expand testing across the state over the next few weeks, so the numbers may continue to rise as more Maine residents get tested. The CDC revised guidance on how the virus spreads, noting that touching contaminated objects or surfaces is not a significant mode of transmission. Primary spread is from person to person. The CDC has updated their modeling and is estimating that about 35% of COVID-19 cases are asymptomatic. President Trump echoed Treasury Secretary Mnuchin, stating he thinks there will be an additional stimulus package. Flags will be flown at half-staff for the next three days to honor victims of COVID-19. Yosemite National Park hopes to reopen in June. Reservations will be required. Latin America is witnessing a dramatic increase in cases, outpacing the US and Europe for 3 days in a row.

052120 This is Coronavirus 411, the latest COVID-19 info and new hotspots… Just the facts… for Thursday May 21st, 2020. The Mayor of Montgomery, Alabama said the city faces a shortage of ICU beds. Forcing some patients to be transferred to hospitals out of town. Alabama is one of 7 states where cases have increased over the last two weeks. On May 1st, there were 226 new cases, yesterday there were 676. There are 266 cases per 100,000 residents in Alabama, putting it ahead of more populous states like California, Washington, Florida and Texas. A model from the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, warns that communities throughout the south that may have opened too quickly could see a new wave of infection in the next few weeks. Columbia University released a study noting that had the U.S. enacted social distancing measures one week earlier in March, 36,000 lives may have been saved. Had they been in place two weeks earlier, it is estimated that 83% of the fatalities could have been avoided. Harvard Medical School researchers relayed that the 25 monkeys they immunized with DNA vaccines, created antibodies that protected them from the virus. The higher the level of antibodies, the stronger the protection. Virginia, Texas, Georgia and Vermont have been combining COVID-19 tests results, which look for active infection, with antibody test results, which look for past exposure. According to CNN, combining the two overstates the testing ability of the state. Global cases passed 5 million, as the world saw the largest one day increase with 106,000 new cases according to the WHO. The Director of the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control has warned that Europe must be ready for a second wave of the virus, saying “The question is when and how big”, reports The Guardian.

052020 This is Coronavirus 411, the latest COVID-19 info and new hotspots… Just the facts… for Wednesday May 20th, 2020. One week ago, the Wisconsin Supreme Court overruled the extension of the state’s stay at home order. Milwaukee and Racine issued their own stay at home orders, but in a number of smaller cities and counties bars and restaurants were opened with limited protocols in place. So, how do the numbers in Wisconsin look one week later? Confirmed cases have gone from 10,900 to 13,001, deaths from 421 to 467. Bars and restaurants will start to reopen Friday in the Milwaukee suburbs and some water and amusement parks in the Wisconsin Dells will open Saturday. The challenge now is how to deal with people coming to Wisconsin from neighboring Illinois, which has the third highest case count in the country. Over the weekend, The CDC released a 60-page guide online to assist in the reopening of schools, restaurants and other businesses. Guidelines for places of worship, were not included. A federal judge in Texas has ruled that voters should be allowed to mail in ballots. The state is expected to appeal. Michigan will mail absentee ballots to all voters for the upcoming August and November elections. Arkansas will begin testing every nursing home resident and employee on June 1st. Los Angeles County hopes to reopen businesses by July 4th. Alaska will move from phase 2 to phase 4, fully reopening the state with no capacity restrictions, on Friday. A mandatory 2-week quarantine for those arriving to the state will remain in effect through June 2nd.

052320 This is Coronavirus 411, the latest COVID-19 info and new hotspots… Just the facts… for Saturday May 23rd, 2020. Speaking at a White House press conference Friday, Dr. Birx said the Washington DC Metro has the highest rate of people testing positive in the country. Because the metro includes Washington DC and counties in Virginia and Maryland, the overall count of the area can be misleading. Washington DC proper, has the 5th highest case count with 1,118 per 100,000 residents. But add in the counties that comprise the metro area and according to Dr. Birx, it takes the top spot. The DC Metro accounts for 60% of average daily infections for The District, Maryland and Virginia, reports The Washington Post. Virginia and Maryland began easing restrictions last week, but both state’s kept restrictions in place for counties nearest the Washington DC metro. The CDC revealed that it has been combining tests for active COVID-19, with tests for the antibody. This can be misleading as antibody tests do not test for current infection or indicate if someone is contagious, just that they had been previously exposed. Speaking to the press Friday, President Trump said that houses of worship are essential and should “open right now”. And that he will “override the governors” if states do not allow them to reopen. The Vice President said negotiations for another stimulus package are “actively underway”. For the first time since March, more than 300,000 passed through airport security yesterday. Parts of Long Island and some other New York City suburbs may start reopening next week, if virus metrics continue to decline. Miami will reopen beaches and hotels to visitors on June 1st. The President of Brazil says quarantines and lockdowns will be more detrimental to the economy than the virus. Nearly 20,000 new cases were logged there yesterday. Brazil has the third highest case count in the world. Peru has extended their “state of emergency” through the end of June. China reported zero deaths due to COVID-19 on Saturday.

052220 This is Coronavirus 411, the latest COVID-19 info and new hotspots… Just the facts… for Friday May 22nd, 2020. The U.S. recorded over 25,000 new cases yesterday and 1,314 deaths. 6 states show a rise in cases over the last two weeks, including one that seemed relatively safe earlier in the outbreak. Maine reported their highest two-day total since the outbreak began. They have 1,877 confirmed cases, 136 of those were reported in the last two days. The state has been fairly aggressive with restrictions. The statewide stay at home order is in effect until June 1st, though some personal care business were allowed to reopen on May 1st. A 14-day quarantine for anyone entering the state remains in effect through August. So why the jump? According to the Maine government website, the state increased testing on May 18th. Allowing health care providers to test anyone they suspected of having the virus. A grant from the CDC will expand testing across the state over the next few weeks, so the numbers may continue to rise as more Maine residents get tested. The CDC revised guidance on how the virus spreads, noting that touching contaminated objects or surfaces is not a significant mode of transmission. Primary spread is from person to person. The CDC has updated their modeling and is estimating that about 35% of COVID-19 cases are asymptomatic. President Trump echoed Treasury Secretary Mnuchin, stating he thinks there will be an additional stimulus package. Flags will be flown at half-staff for the next three days to honor victims of COVID-19. Yosemite National Park hopes to reopen in June. Reservations will be required.

Coronavirus news, updates, hotspots and information for 05-21-2020 COVID-19 AM Alert

052120 This is Coronavirus 411, the latest COVID-19 info and new hotspots… Just the facts… for Thursday May 21st, 2020. The Mayor of Montgomery, Alabama said the city faces a shortage of ICU beds. Forcing some patients to be transferred to hospitals out of town. Alabama is one of 7 states where cases have increased over the last two weeks. On May 1st, there were 226 new cases, yesterday there were 676. There are 266 cases per 100,000 residents in Alabama, putting it ahead of more populous states like California, Washington, Florida and Texas. A model from the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, warns that communities throughout the south that may have opened too quickly could see a new wave of infection in the next few weeks. Columbia University released a study noting that had the U.S. enacted social distancing measures one week earlier in March, 36,000 lives may have been saved. Had they been in place two weeks earlier, it is estimated that 83% of the fatalities could have been avoided. Harvard Medical School researchers relayed that the 25 monkeys they immunized with DNA vaccines, created antibodies that protected them from the virus. The higher the level of antibodies, the stronger the protection. Virginia, Texas, Georgia and Vermont have been combining COVID-19 tests results, which look for active infection, with antibody test results, which look for past exposure. According to CNN, combining the two overstates the testing ability of the state. Global cases passed 5 million, as the world saw the largest one day increase with 106,000 new cases according to the WHO. The Director of the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control has warned that Europe must be ready for a second wave of the virus, saying “The question is when and how big”, reports The Guardian.
