                        The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) released statewide unemployment data on Friday, showing a slight increase in the unemployment rate from June to July. As stated in the DEO release, Florida’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 5.1 percent in July 2021, up 0.1% from the June 2021 rate, and down from 6.4% one year ago. At this time last year, businesses that had either scaled back or shut down in the wake of the pandemic were just starting to benefit from Governor DeSantis’ efforts to re-open the state. “When you look at June and July (this year), we actually saw a higher uptick of people joining the labor force. So, that’s probably an indication of positive impacts there,” DEO Chief Economist Adrienne Johnston said in a conference call. “Things are continuing to increase. We are continuing to see people move back into the labor force. They are encouraged to find work, and it just takes a little bit of time for those connections to be made.” According...
    Two Syracuse, New York residents, who were among the hundreds of breakthrough COVID-19 cases in recent Massachusetts outbreaks that caught national attention, are detailing their symptoms. Mark MacBain, 53, Skip Collins, 52, and a group of friends traveled to Provincetown in mid-July, a popular vacation spot along Cape Cod. Thousands were drawn to the surrounding area between July 3-17 for multiple summer events and large public gatherings, according to a recent report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). MacBain and Collins both received the Pfizer vaccine earlier this year. CLICK HERE TO FIND A COVID-19 VACCINE NEAR YOU According to MacBain, the group of friends stayed in several houses, and soon enough, one person wasn't feeling well and left early. The individual soon tested positive and called back to alert the others, who then sought out testing.

    At two major San Francisco hospitals, at least 233 staff members — most of them fully vaccinated — tested positive for the coronavirus in July, and most, according to a hospital official, involved the highly contagious delta variant. Some of the cases were asymptomatic, most involved mild to moderate symptoms and only two required hospitalization, officials said. The infections were determined to be delta-related because most samples in San Francisco were tested for the variant, which is now dominant in the city. About 75% to 80% of the more than 50 infected staff members at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital were fully vaccinated, Dr. Lukejohn Day, the hospital’s chief medical officer, said in an interview Saturday. The University of California, San Francisco Medical Center said in a statement issued Friday that 153 of its 183 infected staff members had been fully vaccinated. The statement from the UCSF Medical Center said two of the infected staff members required hospitalization. None of the infected staff members at San Francisco General have been hospitalized and most had mild to moderate symptoms, Day said....
    Shaun Heasley/Getty Images “Breakthrough Covid cases are on the rise among the vaccinated,” blares a headline on an NBC News article published Friday. However, as the sub-headline points out, “The 125,682 ‘breakthrough’ cases in 38 states represent less than .08 percent of the 164.2 million-plus people fully vaccinated since January.” Only about half of Americans are vaccinated against Covid-19, as federal, state, and local governments have struggled to convince large swaths of the public to get the shot. Yet, that is the headline NBC News chose.

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Back in July, we saw an average of 40 residents in nursing homes and long-term care facilities testing positive each week across the state. That number gave hope to family members, considering case numbers peaked in the mid-500s back in May. Now we’re looking at the highest case numbers we’ve ever seen. KDKA’s Meghan Schiller interviewed one family back in July almost in celebration. Cases kept dropping in senior living facilities and the family hoped to be able to hug their loved one by the end of the summer. Now it’s the week before Christmas, cases are higher than ever before and their loved one just tested positive. It’s hard enough to move a loved one into a new senior living facility, let alone 9 months deep into a pandemic. “We found a place 2 miles up the road in Cranberry called Paramount and they’ve been wonderful,” said Gary Williams. We first met Williams in early July when his dad Jay celebrated his 85th birthday. The family celebrated with cake and talked to him through the window....

    New York City is bracing for another round of crippling shutdowns as eight neighborhoods experience 'alarming' surges in coronavirus infection rates.   It comes as New York state recorded a positivity rate of 1.5 percent on Sunday - the highest it's been since mid-July.  Gov Andrew Cuomo announced the latest positivity rate at a press conference on Monday, saying that spikes in the Big Apple were a 'big contributor'.  He said that the state is ramping up efforts to keep the pandemic under control by sending in additional health department officers to high risk areas to ensure 'additional testing and compliance measures.   'It's very targeted and focused on those clusters,' Cuomo said of the state's heightened efforts.   Health officials warned about the emergence of COVID-19 clusters in several communities across Queens and Brooklyn last week, saying that they would begin rolling back reopenings in affected areas as early as Monday if the numbers don't improve.  As of Sunday, eight neighborhoods with large Orthodox Jewish populations were identified as potential targets for an 'immediate scaling back of activities', which may include bans on...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — Growth in the U.S. services sector, where most Americans work, slowed in August after big rebounds in June and July, indicating lingering problems stemming from the coronavirus pandemic. The Institute for Supply Management reported Thursday that its index of activity in the services activity showed a reading of 56.9% in August, down 1.2 percentage-points from the July reading of 58.1. Any reading above 50 indicates growth in the services sector. By that measure, the services sector has shown growth for three straight months after taking a big hit in the spring when the country shut down to combat the coronavirus.

    Matthew Rozsa August 10, 2020 8:31PM (UTC) As President Donald Trump continues to push for American children to physically return to school this fall, a new study reveals that more than 97,000 children in this country tested positive for the coronavirus during the final two weeks of July 2020. The report, which was released by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Children's Hospital Association, found that child coronavirus cases in the states and cities covered by the report increased by 40 percent during the two weeks they studied. The report also claims that 86 children have died of the disease since May. Because different states had different criteria as to what counts as a "child," the age cap for being considered a juvenile ranged from 14 in some states to 24 in one of them (Alabama). : One table in the report is particularly revealing. When comparing cumulative COVID-19 cases per 100,000 children as of July 30, it found that four of the five states with the highest rates are controlled by Republican governors: Arizona, South Carolina, Tennessee, Louisiana...
    Children can indeed get the coronavirus. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP and the Children’s Hospital Association analyzed publicly reported data on kids and COVID-19 from 49 states, Puerto Rico and Guam, as well as New York City and Washington, D.C. Their report found that as of July 30, at least 338,982 children have tested positive for COVID-19 since the pandemic began. But the caseload could well be higher, as this report is missing complete data from Texas and parts of New York state outside of NYC. While that number may seem small compared to the overall 5 million confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the U.S., what’s quite alarming is that more than a quarter of those cases in children — or a little more than 97,000 kids — were reported in just the last two weeks of July. That marks a 40% increase in the number of American kids testing positive between July 16 and July 30 alone. And at least 86 children have died of COVID-19 since May. This spike in confirmed cases among children is...

    Less than a week after Donald Trump claimed children are “almost immune” to COVID-19, we get this sobering news: 97,000 children tested positive for the virus in the last two weeks of July. That’s not near-immunity. As ways to prove that Trump was yet again wrong go, 97,000 kids with coronavirus is really not the best. What was happening in the last two weeks of July? In some places, camps were opening for an abbreviated summer. In other places, schools were starting to reopen. The spike in coronavirus cases in many states was continuing, but so was the move back to something approaching “normal” life. And the result was that one in four diagnoses of children since the pandemic hit the U.S. back in March was crammed into one two-week period.  The report, from the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Children’s Hospital Association, has data from  49 states, New York City, Washington, Puerto Rico, and Guam. Most defined children as younger than 19, but some defined the category as young as 14 or as old as 24. The new pediatric cases were clustered in the South and...

    (CNN)More than 97,000 children in the US tested positive for coronavirus in the last two weeks of July, a new report says. The report, published by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Children's Hospital Association, said in those two weeks, there was a 40% increase in child cases across the states and cities that were studied.

    Nearly 100,000 children tested positive for COVID-19 in the last two weeks of July, just weeks ahead of schools reopening in some states amid the pandemic. In total 97,000 children tested positive for the novel coronavirus from July 16 to July 30, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics. Today there are more than five million cases of COVID-19 in the country and over 162,000 deaths. Out of those infections more than 338,000 were children. Dr. Tina Hartert of Vanderbilt University says increased testing of children will be the key to determining their role in transmitting the virus – data more important than ever as some school districts return to in-person class this month. She’s leading a government-funded study where DIY testing kits were sent to some 2,000 families. 'The kits are shipped to the families, they are taught how to collect these samples, and then the samples are sent back by the families to a central repository,' she said in an interview with CBS News.
