    Back in April, Californians didn’t see this coming. But on Wednesday, the Golden State overtook New York for the dreadful distinction of recording the most coronavirus cases in the country since the pandemic began. Statistically, it shouldn’t be too surprising that the largest state in the country with 40 million residents would account for the largest number of infections. As the graphic below shows, New York was the epicenter of the virus in the early months of the pandemic, and by the end of April the Empire State was reporting more than 6 times as many cases as California. Fast-forward to June and July, and it’s easy to see their fortunes — and coronavirus infections curves — cross. On Wednesday, New York was reporting 408,886 cumulative cases in the state, and California’s reported 413,576 on Wednesday, according to data from the COVID Tracking Project. California’s 7-day average for new daily cases is over 9,000 this week, while New York is averaging around 700 new cases a day, showing how much faster the virus is currently spreading here than in New...
    SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX) – A San Francisco epidemiologist says wearing masks is the most effective way Californians can stop the spread of coronavirus and get back on track to reopen. California just surpassed 400,000 coronavirus cases on Tuesday. While that number is just behind New York’s total, California has far fewer cases per 100,000 residents. The state’s health secretary says unfortunately, California’s reopening has been treated as a green light by many to resume normal life and he will not hesitate to tighten restrictions if hospitalizations and deaths continue to rise. “If the data trends turn to such a place where we aren’t confident we will get there, there will be potential for further dimming in parts of the state. Certainly in those counties we are monitoring closely,” said Health and Human Services Agency secretary Dr. Mark Ghaly. The wait time for an appointment at the Embarcadero testing site has stretched even longer, to at least two weeks, as the number of cases grows beyond 5,300, in San Francisco. California’s positivity and hospitalization rates are also trending upward over...
    HOUSTON (AP) — Most of the 85 young children in a South Texas county who are known to have contracted the coronavirus tested positive this month amid a surge in the state, a health official said Sunday. Nearly all of the children, most of whom are 1 year old or younger, are expected to recover on their own, Annette Rodriguez, the Corpus Christi-Nueces County public health director, told The Associated Press by phone. One of the children died, but officials are still trying to determine if COVID-19 was the cause, she said. “There’s always that concern that you’re going to have that one baby like we did that passed away,” Rodriguez said. “How many more from this group? What percent will you lose possibly to this virus?” The county, which is home to about 362,000 people and sits on the Gulf Coast, is one of several COVID-19 hot spots in Texas, which has been hammered by the disease in recent weeks.

    The United States shattered its own record Wednesday for the most reported COVID-19 cases in a 24-hour period – 67,600 according to Johns Hopkins University. With nearly 3.5 million confirmed cases and more than 137,358 deaths, the United States leads the world in both counts. Brazil trails the U.S. with some 1.9 million confirmed cases and 75,366 deaths. States that had been easing lockdowns and restrictions are starting to reimpose them as health officials blame the coronavirus resurgence on people who refuse to wear masks or ignore social distancing rules. The country’s two largest brick-and-mortar retailers – Walmart department stores and Kroger supermarkets said Wednesday that all customers walking through their doors will be required to wear face masks starting next week. About 35 percent of all Walmart stores are in cities and towns where local governments have no face covering mandates. Walmart has more than 5,000 stores in the United States and Puerto Rico, according to its corporate website. "Walmart has a great deal of influence in this regard," Walton College of Business Professor Alan Ellstrand told the cable...
    CDC director Robert Redfield says the current spike in COVID-19 infections in the South may have been caused by people from the Northeast traveling there for vacation and not due to states reopening too quickly.  Addressing the alarming surge in coronavirus cases, Redfield said on Tuesday that infections in Sun Belt states 'simultaneously kind of popped' in the second week of June after reopening in various phases.  Redfield compared it to the initial outbreak in the Northeast in March, which he says spread out to various states from epicenter New York.  'We tried to give states guidance on how to reopen safely. I think the guidance we put out was really sound,' he said in an interview with Dr Howard Bauchner of The Journal of the American Medical Association. 'I think if you look critically, few states actually followed that guidance, although I don't think the reopening's actually what's driving the current Southern expansion right now. 'If you look at the South, everything happened around June 12 to June 16. It all simultaneously kind of popped. CDC director Robert Redfield said...

    Although Colorado is not yet experiencing COVID-19 case spikes of the sort being seen in Florida, Texas and Arizona, the rising number of positive tests, which just hit the highest point for daily diagnoses in two months, clearly demonstrates that the state is losing ground in the fight against the novel coronavirus. The 461 positives recorded on July 10 were the most for a single day in more than two months, and the July 11 total of 433 marked the third day in a row that new cases exceeded 400. And while the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment insists that the increase is tied in part to reporting anomalies, that case increase was accompanied by a continuing leap in hospitalizations: The number of people hospitalized with COVID-19 on July 12 was the highest since early June.

    (CNN) — With rising COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations sending many states backward in their reopening plans, one health expert warns that if the US continues on its current path it will reach “one of the most unstable times in the history of our country.” “We will have hospitals overwhelmed and not only in terms of ICU beds and hospitals — and that’s bad — but exhausted hospital staff and hospital staff that’s getting ill themselves,” Dr. Peter Hotez, the dean of tropical medicine at Baylor College of Medicine, told CNN Friday night. “So, we won’t have enough manpower, human power, to manage all of this.” Only five states saw a decrease of at least 10% in average new daily cases over the past week. And the US set a record for the highest single day of new cases for the second time this week with 66,627 cases on Friday, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.

    In a stunning new report, the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office examined 25 wrongful convictions and determined that prosecutorial and police misconduct contributed to a majority of them. “The magnitude of years lost to wrongful imprisonment in these cases is almost unbearable—together, they add up to 426 years spent in prison,” wrote DA Eric Gonzalez in an introduction to the 100-page analysis. “Each case described in these pages is itself a complete tragedy, for the person who was wrongfully convicted and incarcerated, for his or her community, for the victims and survivors of these cases, and indeed for all of us.” The DA’s Conviction Review Unit, which examines claims of innocence, investigated the 20 highlighted cases — leading to the exoneration of 25 defendants for crimes dating as far back as 1963. In 85 percent of them, the CRU determined that prosecutorial misconduct contributed to the wrongful convictions, according to the report. In 65 percent of the cases, the unit found that police misconduct led to the miscarriage of justice. All but one of the exonerees are people of color,...
    Panama is one of the countries with the highest number of coronavirus cases reported per million inhabitants in the last week and the first, by far, in Latin America. Only on Wednesday, the nation, of just four million, registered 960 new cases of covid-19, for a total of 41,251, while the deaths were 819, according to data from the Ministry of Health (Minsa). Even if compared to countries that have a similar population and are in the same area, the cases in Panama are much higher: Costa Rica, for example, with almost five million inhabitants, had only reported up to Wednesday 5,836 cases and 24 deaths. And is that the number of new daily infections in Panama went from staying at 200 in the first months of the pandemic to hovering around 1,000 in recent weeks. During the weeks that have passed since Panama eased quarantine restrictions in an attempt to gradually revive its economy, covid-19 infections have multiplied, especially in native communities and in the more densely populated neighborhoods of the capital.

    The coronavirus outbreak continued to worsen in California this week, with 9,500 infections recorded on Tuesday — the most new cases reported in a single day since the pandemic began — and triple-digit fatalities that sent the statewide death toll past 6,500. California cases are on pace to double every 24.8 days, a number that is used by experts to measure how quickly the virus is spreading.

San Francisco officials this week opted to delay loosening restrictions on businesses, including indoor dining at restaurants, which were scheduled to resume next week. The city previously had suspended the reopening of hair salons, zoos, museums and outdoor bars. San Francisco had...
    Harvard University officials said Monday that school will invite only 40 percent of undergraduates, including all first-year students, to campus for the fall semester as the number of coronavirus cases continues to increase in most states. In an email to students, university President Lawrence Bacow, Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences Claudine Gay, and Dean of the College Rakesh Khurana said officials recognize the "intrinsic incompatibility" between the in-person experience and the need to physically distance amid the pandemic. "The recent upturn in COVID-19 cases in certain states illustrates the difficulty of making predictions, even well-informed ones, about the evolution of this virus. Given this uncertainty, we determined that our fall plan must enable us to bring back as many students as possible while providing sufficient margin to accommodate an escalation of the prevalence of COVID-19 in our area," the email reads. "Without a vaccine or effective clinical treatments for the virus, we know that no choice that reopens the campus is without risk."

    Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said Wednesday she is closing indoor service at Michigan bars as a proactive measure to prevent the resurgence of coronavirus in the state. The governor issued Executive Order 2020-143 on Wednesday afternoon, likely in response to more than 100 COVID-19 cases recently linked to Harper’s Restaurant and Brew Pub in East Lansing in a so-called “super-spreader” incident. The order excludes Regions 6 and 8, which, respectively, are the Upper Peninsula and a large swath of northern Michigan. Establishments with outdoor seating will be allowed to stay open throughout the state. Any establishment that earns more than 70 percent of its gross receipts from on-premise alcohol sales is subject to the governor’s order, which, according to the release, exempts most brewpubs, distilleries and vineyards.

    By The Associated Press NEW ORLEANS — A study of New Orleans area residents infected with the coronavirus indicates 75 percent had no symptoms. The study released Thursday by researchers at New Orleans-based Ochsner Health was done in May. It looked at testing of residents in New Orleans and neighboring Jefferson Parish. The study indicated a death rate among those infected of 1.63%, much more deadly than the flu. Researchers selected 2,640 people, representing varied demographic groups from Orleans and Jefferson, from among 25,000 volunteers. They received nasal swab tests for the virus and blood tests for antibodies. Another finding in the study: Infection rates were higher among Black residents (10.3%) than white residents (5.9%). The death rates of 1.72% and 1.58%, respectively, were not considered statistically significant. Ochsner’s chief medical officer, Dr. Robert Hart, says the study demonstrated the need for masking and social distancing as the virus shows signs of resurgence in Louisiana and around the country. “We need to assume that we could all potientially be carriers,” Hart said. ___ HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT...
    Coronavirus — Since June 21, Spain started the so-called new normality and one of the most common phenomena is that of outbreaks. According to Health, there are 51 assets throughout the country, although they only turn out worrying little more than a dozen when remaining active, that is, they carry a certain risk. Madrid, the province hardest hit by the pandemic, coincidentally has none. The key is that there is no fixed definition of how many people make up an outbreak. Some authorities consider it from three or four related cases, while for others, the number must be higher. Importance of knowing the provenance Ildefonso Hernández, spokesman for the Spanish Society of Public Health (SESPAS), stated in eldiario.es that “of the 40 cases in Madrid on Wednesday one wonders where they come from. And ideally they should be an outbreak. It is better that each one arise in a different place. If they can be traced well, it is known where they come from, who they have infected … no problem. The worrying thing is when they arise in...

    Rising numbers of coronavirus infections in Arizona must be taken "in context," as there is now much more testing going on, Rep. Andy Biggs said Monday.  "We have two border counties where they really have increased the number so theyve become the hot spots," the Arizona Republican said on Fox News "Americas Newsroom." "Those with the Navajo reservation, those four counties really are the spot, but at the same time, we have discharged 4,000 patients since June 1." As of Sunday, Arizona added more than 800 more positive coronavirus infections bringing the total to approximately 73,000 cases and 1,394 deaths.

The most affected region is, for another week, southern Africa, which already borders 130,000 infections, the vast majority of them in South Africa, with 124,590 cases and 2,340 deaths. The north of the continent, with 92,674 infections, is home to the country with the highest number of deaths, Egypt, which has 62,755 cases and 2,620 deaths. The epidemic was expanding in Africa more slowly than in other regions, thanks in large part to the strict and early response of most governments.
    The coronavirus did not give truce today in some of the most populous countries in the world, with another record of cases in the overflowing United States and a sustained increase in India, Brazil, Chile and other nations of Latin America, the new epicenter of a pandemic that It is heading to exceed 10 million infected and 500,000 deaths in the coming days. The other side of this critical situation was once again shown by the countries of Europe, fully dedicated to the reopening of activities with the tempting summer ahead, although several of them – like Spain – continue to act quickly on new sources of contagion by detecting early detection and isolation necessary to prevent the spread of the virus. Spain and Italy were able to show today figures of three and eight deaths respectively from the disease, very good news for two of the countries of the old continent most affected by Covid-19. Instead, the United States beat its own record of new infections for the second consecutive day, with more than 45,000, and remains the country...
    SAN ANTONIO – More than a dozen H-E-B stores in San Antonio recorded new COVID-19 cases on Saturday alone, according to store officials. Officials posted the new cases at 14 H-E-B stores online as Bexar County experiences an alarming rise in coronavirus infections. In total, at least 50 stores in San Antonio, New Braunfels and surrounding areas have recorded at least one COVID-19 case since the start of the pandemic. The San Antonio-based grocery giant has made public cases at its stores, including details about when the employee was last in the store, on its website. It does so, officials said, to be transparent with customers. “H-E-B’s daily focus is the health and safety of our Partners and customers,” the company said in a statement to KSAT 12. “Transparency is important; our first priority is constant communication to our Partners and for our customers, they can visit their store’s website to see when a confirmed positive Partner last worked in their store. H-E-B is aggressive with constant sanitization, social distancing and mask wearing.” Texas reports 5,747 more COVID-19 cases amid...
    (Bloomberg) – The alarming chart below has been circulating. It illustrates the poor work the United States has done to contain covid-19 compared to the European Union, a larger region of independent countries that suffered a previous outbreak. What is the big difference? What is the US doing wrong? There are many possible answers to those questions. A slow initial reaction and an inability to scale up tests allowed the virus to spread across the United States. And instead of coordinating a strong and coherent national response, President Donald Trump consistently dismissed the virus threat and left decisions to insufficiently supported states. As a result, decisions about closings and reopens have been chaotic and have ignored guidelines established by federal public health officials. In the midst of all this, a particular difference between the US and European countries’ approaches stands out. Many states were happy to reopen after simply “tipping the curve,” that is, slowing growth upward and ensuring additional hospital capacity. These states continued to expand economic activity on a high plateau with many ongoing infections. In contrast, most...
    Coronavirus cases are “surging” according to public health experts and on Wednesday, the United States set a record for the highest single-day total of new diagnoses of the virus since the pandemic began back in March. “Across the United States,” the Washington Post reported Thursday, “38,115 new infections were reported by state health departments on Wednesday — surpassing the previous single-day record of 34,203 set on April 25.” Three of the country’s most populous states are responsible for the vast majority of new infections. California, Texas, and Florida are all experiencing virus “surges” and the number of cases in each of those states is steadily increasing, in some cases faster than during the first wave of COVID-19 infections. “Florida and Texas announced Wednesday that they’d recorded more than 5,000 new Covid-19 cases the prior day, a new daily record. California reported more than 7,000 cases, obliterating a record hit a day earlier,” CNN reports. “Florida passed 5,000 again on Thursday, according to new state data.” “If the current Texas trajectory continues, Houston could be the hardest-hit city in the US with...
    (CNN)The three most populous states are setting records for new coronavirus cases daily -- and an expert fears major Texas cities could see "apocalyptic" numbers if the trend continues. Coronavirus has killed at least 121,979 people and infected nearly 2.4 million nationwide, according to Johns Hopkins. Florida and Texas announced Wednesday that they had recorded more than 5,000 new Covid-19 cases the prior day, a new daily record. California reported more than 7,000 cases, obliterating a record hit a day earlier. California reports more than 7,000 new coronavirus cases in a dayIn Texas, if the current case trajectory continues, Houston could be the hardest-hit city in the US with numbers rivaling those in Brazil. Infection numbers are also rising in Dallas, Austin and San Antonio, said Dr. Peter Hotez, dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at the Baylor College of Medicine. "The big metro areas seem to be rising very quickly and some of the models are on the verge of being apocalyptic," Hotez told CNN's Anderson Cooper.

    SANTA ANA (CBSLA) – Orange County health officials Wednesday announced their highest one-day total of coronavirus-related deaths since the pandemic began, even as county officials called for clarification on the data. The number of fatalities hit 26, along with 354 newly confirmed cases, according to the Orange County Health Care Agency, bringing the county’s totals to 11,016 cases and 299 deaths. Officials say the number of people hospitalized with the virus rose from 349 on Tuesday to 363, but those numbers may include as many as 30 people from Imperial County. Supervisor Don Wagner said the hospitalization rate includes patients who may have been brought to a hospital for an unrelated issue such as a “slip and fall” or “appendicitis” but tested positive for COVID-19. There are also nine patients from Imperial County in Orange County’s beds as part of a plan to relieve a surplus of patients in Imperial County. Confusion over the numbers prompted calls from Wagner and Orange County Board of Supervisors Chairwoman Michelle Steel for a more detailed breakdown of the numbers on the county’s website....

While no state has rolled back phases of reopening yet, some states have slowed the pace.  White House coronavirus advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci said Tuesday at a congressional hearing that he doesn't think states will need to return to lockdown, but they may consider returning to a prior phases of reopening as cases increase.  The investment firm Instinet analyzed a dozen states that as of last Friday had reported record highs in new Covid-19 cases: Florida, Texas, Utah, South Carolina, Nevada, Georgia, Missouri, Montana, Arizona, California, Tennessee and Oklahoma. In many of these states, cases have only grown since that time. Both Florida and California reported record one-day increases again Wednesday.  Zoom In...

    On Monday, the FDA pulled its emergency use authorization for hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for COVID-19. Despite Donald Trump claiming that he is taking the malaria medication to prevent coming down with COVID-19, there remains no evidence that the drug is effective for that purpose. In fact, the FDA concluded that the dangers of taking the drug outweigh any possible benefit. Later in the day, the FDA also put out a warning of a potential interaction between hydroxychloroquine and antiviral drug remdesivir, the only drug which had proven to provide positive benefits for some patients. Despite months of Trump bragging on the drug and calling it a “game changer,” hydroxychloroquine turns out to be a dangerous dud.  But on Tuesday, researchers in the UK announced the results of a new study that may indicate there’s a second drug in the arsenal for treating those with a serious case of COVID-19. Results from the massive, worldwide trial known as Recovery indicate that a widely available steroid used in treating inflammation could save thousands of lives.

    Cases of COVID-19, caused by the novel coronavirus, are spiking in at least 20 states following the Memorial Day holiday and states’ first efforts to life coronavirus-related lockdowns. CNN reports that at least 22 states are seeing an uptick in virus cases, in some cases as much as a 46% rise in the number of diagnosed cases of COVID-19, though it’s not immediately clear whether those diagnosed cases required hospitalization or resulted in death. In 20 other states, cases are on the decline (including New York, which is largely considered to be the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic in the United States), and in 8 additional states, cases are holding steady. Many of the states now experiencing an uptick in coronavirus cases are smaller, with smaller populations, according to US News and World Report: “Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Florida, Hawaii, Idaho, Kentucky, Missouri, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Nevada, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, and Washington.” Florida is among the most concerning, with an uptick of around 46% in just the last week, according to CNN.
