The number of deaths in the United States (US) due to the corona virus reached 200,000 on Tuesday (22/9/2020).

This figure could not even have been imagined when the outbreak first hit the US eight months ago.

“It is really unexpected that we have reached this point,” said Johns Hopkins University public health researcher Jennifer Nuzzo quoted from Al Jazeera, Tuesday (9/22/2020).

This is a bleak milestone and is by far the highest number of deaths in the world based on figures provided by state health authorities.

COVID Update: CDC removes airborne transmission statement, cites error

The Centers for Disease Control updated a document Friday without fanfare that states the agency’s position on how the coronavirus spreads, then removed the new guidance Monday saying it was posted in error.

The document said person-to-person and coughing/sneezing/breathing are the primary ways the virus is transmitted through droplets, but the agency then said there is growing evidence that airborne droplets after a sneeze or cough — droplets that linger in the air — are of concern.

“There is growing evidence that droplets and airborne particles can remain suspended in the air and be breathed in by others, and travel distances beyond 6 feet (for example, during choir practice, in restaurants, or in fitness classes),” the document said. “In general, indoor environments without good ventilation increase this risk.”

But on Monday, the agency removed the mention of airborne transmission from their website with the following explanation.

“A draft version of proposed changes to these recommendations was posted in error to the agency’s official website,” it reads. “CDC is currently updating its recommendations regarding airborne transmission of SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19). Once this process has been completed, the update language will be posted.”

In a Zoom conference call on Monday, a senior CDC official explained that the online post that suggested the virus that causes COVID-19 is airborne was an early draft still undergoing scientific review and was posted by mistake.

John Brooks, the chief medical officer for CDC’s COVID-19 response, apologized.

“I just want to let you know that this early draft of a document that’s presently undergoing scientific review wasn’t intended to be posted,” he said. “That was an error on behalf of our agency, and I apologize on behalf of CDC for that. We weren’t ready to put it up.”

Brooks said that it remains unclear if the virus is airborne.

“We’re looking at possibility of COVID being transmitted as sort of an opportunistic airborne condition,” he said. “That means that…it can possibly be transmitted through the airborne route, but that this is not the main mode of transmission. The main mode of transmission remains close exposure within that six foot circumference of a person is effective.”

Brooks also defended what he called a “rigorous scientific review process” by the CDC of its scientific studies “to ensure timely, accurate, reliable, the most important trustworthy public health information and recommendations.”

“CDC as an agency stands by the scientific integrity (of) the more than hundred — now over one hundred — COVID-19 reports that the MWWR war has published to date,” he said.

‘Coronavirus update’ with new expert – hope for autumn | 09/08/20

FRANKFURT / HAMBURG (dpa-AFX) – Masks, hand hygiene and cough labels could not only protect against corona this autumn and winter, but also ensure that certain other infectious diseases decrease. An older study from Hong Kong gives her “a little hope”, said the new interviewee in the much-noticed NDR podcast “Coronavirus Update”, the Frankfurt virologist Sandra Ciesek.

The director of the Institute for Medical Virology at the University Clinic in Frankfurt will take turns with the Berlin virologist Christian Drosten on a weekly basis. On Tuesday, the Frankfurt woman made her debut as an interview partner.

In 2003, when Sars – also a coronavirus – was rampant, the Hong Kong scientists compared the number of respiratory infections with that of previous years. For fear of becoming infected, most people in Asia followed the so-called AHA rules at the time, said Ciesek. The question was, “How did that affect other viruses?”

The data for four pathogens, including that of the flu, were compared. “It has been seen that the behavior has resulted in these infections all going down significantly over the months,” said Ciesek. There was even a control virus: hepatitis B. Here the numbers did not go down – the virus is not transmitted through the air, but through sexual contacts. “The study gives me a little hope for the fall / winter,” said Ciesek. “I do think that the AHA rules will certainly make other virus infections less likely.”

Nevertheless, it is very important that the risk groups get vaccinated. Which groups of people should be vaccinated depends on the amount of available doses, said Ciesek. The proposal to vaccinate all children against the flu is “certainly a good idea”, but only if the vaccine is sufficient. “It is very important that precise criteria are now established so that the cans are distributed as sensibly as possible,” warned Ciesek.

Differentiating between different infections on the basis of their symptoms is “totally difficult”, said Ciesek. Only a laboratory test would bring clarity. There is an innovation in autumn: the multiplex PCR. “That means you take a smear and can then test different pathogens at once in the laboratory – not one after the other, but in parallel.” / Sat / DP / fba

Illinois COVID 19 Today: IL reports 1,880 new coronavirus cases, 11 deaths as IL surpasses 8,000 deaths

CHICAGO (WLS) — On Saturday, state health officials announced that a total of 8,008 people in Illinois have died after contracting COVID-19.

“Today is a solemn day in Illinois as we’ve now lost 8,000 lives to COVID-19,” said Governor JB Pritzker in a statement Saturday. “As we mourn the family, friends and neighbors who have been taken too soon, let’s do our part to prevent more senseless tragedy. Wear a mask. Watch your distance. Wash your hands. Every action counts.”

Illinois health officials reported 1,880 new coronavirus cases and 11 additional deaths Saturday.

The Illinois Department of Public Health now reports a total of 231,363 cases and 8,008 deaths in 102 counties in the state.

The statewide positivity rate for the period of August 21 – August 28 is 4%. Within the past 24 hours, laboratories have reported 48,784 specimens for a total of 3,973,089.

As of Friday night, 1,563 people in Illinois were reported to be in the hospital with COVID-19. Of those, 349 patients were in the ICU and 134 patients with COVID-19 were on ventilators.

The deaths include:
Cook County: 1 male 60s
– Jackson County: 1 male 70s
– Jersey County: 1 female 70s
– Lake County: 1 male 90s
– Madison County: 1 female 70s, 1 male 90s
– McHenry County: 1 male 50s
– Moultrie County: 1 male 70s
– Richland County: 1 male 80s
– Rock Island County: 1 male 60s
– Will County: 1 male 60s

Suburban Cook County was added Friday to a list of Illinois counties now at a “warning” level for COVID-19 cases.

Coronavirus testing: Where to get tested for COVID-19 in Illinois, Chicago area

Counties at the warning level could face new restrictions if more isn’t done to slow the spread of the virus. There are now 30 counties at a warning level in Illinois.

COVID-19 numbers have been on the rise in suburban Cook County. The state has added Cook County to 29 other counties in the state at a warning level, meaning the county is exceeding two or more risk indicators for the spread of the virus.

County health officials say they believe the surge in cases is coming from large private gatherings where people fail to wear masks and observe social distancing.

“We’re in the process of thinking about if we continue to remain in orange, maybe we then recommend further mitigation measures to be put in place throughout suburban Cook County,” Cook County Medical Officer Dr. Rachel Rubin said.

The announcement comes at a difficult time for the county, with many schools returning to session. While many school districts are beginning the year remotely, this could set back hopes of returning to normal anytime soon.

Officials said they may also consider further restrictions on gyms with fitness classes and will work with the Illinois Restaurant Association on any new policies. It’s bad news for restaurant owners or customers who are hoping for a return to normal.

“Every time they restrict our ability to do business, it obviously has a significant impact on our ability to pay the bills,” said Marc Hoffman, with Ala Carte Restaurant Group.

Health officials said there is one bright spot: despite the increase in the number of cases, hospitalizations are not increasing.

As the number of coronavirus infections rises to over 1,000 in Australia, five major states are imposing orders in the United States by keeping 84 million citizens in their homes and Albania is using its army to impose a strict 40-hour curfew.

This story is updated regularly throughout the day.

The fifth U.S. state issues home return orders

A quarter of Americans have now been ordered to remain in their homes, with New Jersey following four other states imposing unprecedented public health restrictions.

California, New York, Illinois and Connecticut had already tightened the rules on the movement of residents. Orders now apply to 84 million people.

Trips to grocery stores, pharmacies, gas stations and other “essential activities” are excluded.

And officials warn that life will not return to normal soon.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said, “I don’t think it will be a matter of weeks. I believe it will be a matter of months.”

Cuomo said the state identified 6,000 fans but needed 30,000. He said the state was sending 1 million N95 respiratory masks to New York City, where over 6,000 cases were diagnosed.

The death toll in Italy is rising again

The sad Italian account of coronavirus cases and deaths continued to rise, with officials announcing new daily highs: 793 deaths and 6,557 cases.

There are now 53,578 known cases in the country.

Over 60% of the latest deaths have occurred in the northern region of Lombardy.

The new hikes come almost two weeks into a national bloc.

Australian nonprofits and small businesses will receive a tax-free cash payment of up to $ 100,000 to keep people employed as part of the government’s second economic incentive package.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison is poised to unveil $ 66 billion worth of measures today, including aid to retirees and a new wage or “safety net” for workers who lose their jobs.

Bangkok closes more stores

The authorities of the Thai capital Bangkok have introduced new measures to stem the spread of COVID-19.

ABC correspondent in Southeast Asia, Amy Bainbridge, says shopping malls in the city will close today, although supermarkets and pharmacies will remain open, and restaurants will also be able to fill takeaway orders.

Beauty salons, boxing stadiums and game rooms will also close.

The measures came when Thailand reported 89 new confirmed virus cases, bringing the tally to 411.

Most of the cases are located in Bangkok, and many are linked to previous infections from a boxing match, an entertainment complex and a religious gathering in neighboring Malaysia.

Schools are already closed and will now remain closed for another 22 days.

Orders issued earlier in the week included the closure of entertainment and sports venues, as well as massage rooms.

Thai Air Asia, Bangkok Airways and Thai Lion Air have suspended international flights.

What coronavirus experts say:

The Albanian army prepared to use force to impose a curfew

The Albanian government has deployed its army to impose a strict 40-hour curfew.

It is hoped that the curfew will slow down the spread of the coronavirus and follow people who break previous measures.

Despite travel bans and orders to stay home for most of the day, many Albanians continued jogging in a group, playing dominoes on the street and ignoring the advice to keep a distance in line.

So far, 76 people in the country have been infected and two have died.

Officials are keen to avoid a sudden spike in cases that would put limited public health services to the test.

Prime Minister Edi Rama and opposition leader Lulzim Basha, in a rare show of unity, called on people to respect the 40-hour blockade, which began at 1pm local time on Saturday.

“Everyone will stay inside after 1pm, the police and the military will use force against anyone who breaks the law, including retirees, and if necessary use water and tear gas cannons,” said Rama.

British police catch toilet paper thieves

British police discovered a handful of stolen toilet paper and handwashing products while stopping a stolen vehicle.

Three men were arrested last Friday for burglary crimes involving dozens of parcels of toilet paper and hand sanitizer – items that have been difficult to find in British stores because of buyers who are in a hurry to stock up.

“Police officers always get a huge sense of satisfaction when we catch thieves … however we never expected to find this stolen booty in the trunk,” said the police operational support group in Essex, a county in the north. east London.
