Despite data showing cases of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and the positive test result rate has remained low in Connecticut, the state will push back Phase 3 reopenings indefinitely due to a surge of cases in dozens of other states.

Gov. Ned Lamont made the announcement during an afternoon news briefing on Monday, July 6.

"We're going to be cautious on this one," he said.

Phase 3, set to start in mid-July, was scheduled to include:

  • Bars
  • Indoor private gatherings of up to 50 people
  • Outdoor private gatherings (including graduations) up to 250 people
  • Outdoor organized gatherings 
  • Outdoor event venues such as theaters and race tracks with 50 percent of fire capacity and distancing

Phase 1 began in the middle of May, with the reopening of non-essential retail businesses, offices, outdoor dining, and outdoor museums and zoos and recreation.

On June 1, hair salons and barbershops reopened.

Phase 2 began in mid-June with indoor dining, hotels, gyms, nail salons, theaters, museums, amusement parks, libraries, spas, tattoo parlors, bowling alleys and other businesses reopening.

The positive testing rate in Connecticut was down to 0.70 percent over the last seven days.

That's lower than any state except Vermont.

During the height of the pandemic, on April 23, nearly 50 percent of those who were tested in Connecticut came back positive.

Between Friday, July 3 and Sunday, July 5, 24,692 tests were administered in Connecticut, with 259 coming back positive (1.0 positivity rate).

Twenty-six fewer people are hospitalized with COVID, with the total of 69 the lowest since March 23.

There were three COVID fatalities the last three days.

While the numbers have stayed steady, Lamont warned Connecticut residents to remain vigilant.

During the news briefing, Lamont shared a frontpage image from the now hotspot state of Texas of the Houston Chronicle from Sunday, July 5  with the headline, "How did we get here?"

"They had such a low positivity rate three months ago when Connecticut, New York and New Jersey accounted for about half the positive rate in the country," Lamont said. "So let's not get too big for our britches."

Major study reveals the most common symptoms of 6 killer heart problems YOU need to know

EXPERTS have revealed the most common symptoms people are likely to experience when they have heart disease. 

Heart disease is the second most common cause of death in the UK, killing around 64,000 Brits each year.

However, many people are unaware of some of the most common symptoms, meaning they let their illness go untreated putting their life at risk. 

Researchers from the American Heart Association have said that understanding and knowing the symptoms is “critical” for an “effective diagnosis and treatment decisions".

“Some people may not consider symptoms like fatigue, sleep disturbance, weight gain and depression as important or related to cardiovascular disease,” they said.

Heart disease is an umbrella term for all diseases which affect the heart.

The paper, published in Circulation, looked at the side effects of six different heart diseases including heart attack, heart failure, valve disease, stroke, heart rhythm disorders, and artery and vein disease.

1. Heart attack

A heart attack occurs when the supply of blood to the heart becomes blocked, which can starve it of oxygen potentially causing serious muscle damage.

According to the study, typical symptoms include chest pain – often described as pressure or discomfort – which can radiate to the jaw, shoulder, arm or upper back. 

Other common symptoms are shortness of breath, sweating or a cold sweat, unusual fatigue, nausea and light headedness. 

2. Heart failure

Heart failure happens when the heart is unable to pump blood around the body properly. It usually occurs because the heart has become too weak or stiff.

Shortness of breath is a classic and well known symptom of heart failure.

However, researchers have said that people should also be aware of early, more subtle symptoms which affect the digestive system including an upset stomach, nausea, vomiting and loss of appetite.

People should also look out for fatigue, struggling to do exercise, insomnia, depression, anxiety, brain fog  and general chest pain. 

Women experience a wider range of symptoms than men when experiencing heart failure, the researchers added. 

They urged women to also look out for palpitations, higher intensity levels of pain in all areas of the body, swelling and sweating.

3. Valve Disease

In heart valve disease, one or more of the valves in the heart doesn't work properly.

In mild cases of valve disease people may have no symptoms for years, then develop progressively more symptoms similar to those associated with heart failure such as chest pain and shortness of breath.

Women are also likely to experience shortness of breath and physical weakness.

4. Stroke

A stroke is a life-threatening medical emergency that happens when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off.

The main symptoms of stroke are recognisable and can be remembered with the word FAST:

  • Face – the face may have dropped on 1 side, the person may not be able to smile, or their mouth or eye may have dropped.
  • Arms – the person with suspected stroke may not be able to lift both arms and keep them there because of weakness or numbness in 1 arm.
  • Speech – their speech may be slurred or garbled, or the person may not be able to talk at all despite appearing to be awake; they may also have problems understanding what you're saying to them.
  • Time – it's time to dial 999 immediately if you see any of these signs or symptoms.

Recognising stroke symptoms is critical since fast treatment may help prevent or reduce the chance of long-term disability or death.

Women experiencing a stroke are actually more likely to have less familiar symptoms than men.

These symptoms include headache, altered mental state, coma or stupor.

A stroke may also impair thinking, which could impact the individual’s ability to recognise new or worsening symptoms.

5. Arrhythmia 

An arrhythmia is an abnormality of the heart's rhythm meaning it may beat too slowly, too quickly, or irregularly.

For some, these heart changes can just be a minor inconvenience and for others it could be fatal.

Typical symptoms include abnormal heartbeat or palpitations that may be irregular, fast, fluttering or halting.

Other symptoms include fatigue, shortness of breath and dizziness.

Some people could also experience chest pain, dizziness, fainting or nearly fainting, and anxiety.

6. Vein and Artery disease

Vein and Artery diseases are any condition that affects the network of your blood vessels.

Peripheral artery disease, or PAD, affects the arteries in the lower body part.

Most people with PAD may have no symptoms or may develop claudication, which is pain in one or both calf muscles that occurs while walking and only stops with rest.

Pain in other parts of the legs and in the feet and toes are also a common symptom.

Depression is lesser known but just as common symptom among older people who have PAD.

Peripheral vein disease (PVD), like PAD, may cause no symptoms, or it may cause leg pain.

Typical leg-related symptoms include leg pain and achiness, heaviness or tightness in the legs, fatigue, cramping, restless legs syndrome and skin irritation.
