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.

Coronavirus news, updates, hotspots and information for 05-25-2020 COVID-19 AM Alert

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.

Coronavirus news, updates, hotspots and information for 05-22-2020 COVID-19 AM Alert

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.
