it raises the number of infections among young people – Telemundo San Diego (20)

According to the count of NBC News, the US reached early this morning of Saturday, the number of 2,467,147 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 125,547 deceased.

Texas and Florida backtracked on Friday, and adopted new measures against the bars, while the daily number of confirmed infections of coronaviruses throughout the united States reached an unprecedented 40,000.

The governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, ordered the closure of all the bars, while Florida banned the consumption of alcohol in those establishments. Both states joined a small but growing list of entities that have been suspended, a greater re-opening of their economies due to flare-ups, mainly in the south and the west of the country.

On Wednesday, the number of new cases of coronavirus by day in the united States, exceeded the peak reached at the end of April, recording more than 45,000 new cases of COVID-19, more than the maximum 36,400 reached on the 24th of April, according to NBC News.

This according to data compiled Wednesday by NBC.

The state most affected by the pandemic remains New York with 395,703 confirmed cases 32,169 deceased.

New York will continue to the neighboring New Jersey with 173,640 confirmed cases and 14,872 deceased, the state of Illinois, with 138,540 infections and 6,847 deaths, and Massachusetts, which has been reported 107,837 positive for coronavirus and 8,013 dead.

Other states with a large number of deaths are Michigan (6,133), Pennsylvania (6,630), California (5,814), and Connecticut, with 4,307.

Health experts have said that it is seeing an alarmingly high number of infections among young people who are coming out again, often without masks and without follow other social distancing measures.

Governor Greg Abbott took the decision to the spike in cases of COVID-19.

“It is evident that the increase in cases is driven primarily by a certain type of activities, as the assistance of texans in the bars,” stated Abbott.

Abbott had undertaken one of the calendarizaciones most dynamic of reopening in the country. The republican had stood up to the demands of that order the use of facemasks and also had refused until last week to allow local governments to impose such a measure.

“The doctors told us at the time, and what is said to who will listen, that this would be a disaster. And what has been”, stated the judge, democrat Clay Jenkins, the authority of highest rank in the county of Dallas. “Once again, the governor acts with slowness. Now you are forced to do the things that you require to do so in the last month and a half”.

Texas reported more than 17,000 new cases in the last three days, and on Thursday reached a record high of nearly 6,000. The second most populous state has also registered daily record of hospitalizations, and Friday surpassed for the first time the 5,000 patients of coronavirus boarding schools.

The couple also has a daughter of 1 year, who also tested positive to the virus.

In Florida, on the instruction of the governor-republican Ron DeSantis, the agency that regulates bars took action after the daily number of new confirmed cases is closer to 9,000, nearly double the record from just two days ago.

Colleen Corbett, a maid of 30 years who works at two facilities in Tampa, was said to be upset and worried to stay again without a job, but pointed out that the restrictions are the correct size. Most customers were not using masks, he said.

“It seems as if they have forgotten that there is a pandemic or just left to worry,” said Corbett.

Several of the states most affected, such as Arizona and Arkansas, have republican governors who have resisted efforts to legislate mandatory use of facemasks and have reiterated the president’s desire to Donald Trump to revive the economy quickly, despite warnings that there could be new outbreaks of coronavirus.

The experts of the federal government estimate that they would be more than 20 million infected with the virus in the US. To see more of Telemundo, visit now.telemundo.com

The number of deaths from coronavirus in the united States has been around 600 per day recently, compared with about 2,200 in the peak reached in April. Some experts doubt that it will reach that level again due to advances in treatment and prevention.

The virus has caused some 125,000 deaths and has infected almost 2.5 million people in the united States, according to a tally by the Johns Hopkins University. But health authorities believe that the number of cases is 10 times higher. At the global level, the virus has claimed close to half a million lives.

Louisiana reported its second day with more than 1,300 confirmed cases, a number that made the democratic governor, John Bel Edwards to suspend a greater lifting of restrictions on mobility. The republican governor of Arizona, Doug Ducey, did the same thing, since the new cases in your state exceed the 3,000 per day, and 85% of hospital beds are occupied.

For the second time in a week, Tennessee reported its biggest daily increase in confirmed infections, with more than 1,400, but the republican governor Bill Lee has been reluctant to re-impose restrictions or require the use of masks.

experts say looming disaster – Telemundo Denver

Hospital administrators and health experts warned on Wednesday that some parts of the united States are on the verge of being overwhelmed by a resurgence of the coronavirus, and expressed regret that politicians and the public weary of closures are leaving that disaster to happen.

The united states recorded a total of 34,700 new cases of COVID-19 in a day, the highest figure in two months, from the peak of 36,400 registered in mid-April, according to the count maintained by the Johns Hopkins University.

Even though new confirmed cases have been declining steadily in sites with outbreaks early in the united States, such as New York and New Jersey, several other states set records for one day this week, including Arizona, California, Mississippi, Nevada and Texas. Some of them broke in addition to records of hospital admissions, as it happened in North Carolina and South Carolina.

The united states reached this Wednesday the number of 2,385,348 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and the of 122,450 deceased, in accordance with the count independent of NBC News.

New York remains the state hardest hit by the pandemic with 398,105 confirmed cases and 32,079 dead.

New York will continue to the neighboring New Jersey (173,475 cases and 13,004 deceased), Massachusetts (107,611 infections and 7,938 deaths) and Illinois (138,540 positive and 6,770 dead).

In Pennsylvania there are 87,733 cases, of which 6,573 have resulted in deaths. Meanwhile, in Michigan, have been confirmed 68,555 infections and 6,114 deaths.

California currently has 192,537 infections and 5,677 deaths, while in Connecticut there are 45,899 infected and 4,277 deceased. Florida reached 109,014 cases and 3,281 deceased, at the time that Louisiana collects 52,477 infections and 3,152 deaths.

“People became complacent,” said dr. Marc Boom, director general of the hospital system Houston Methodist. “And the virus is returning and golpeándonos, frankly”.

The stock market plunged considerably on Wednesday after the resurgence of the virus cast a shadow over hopes for a quick economic recovery. The virus has been blamed for more than 122,000 deaths in the united States and more than 2.3 million of confirmed infections.

California, the most populous state, reported more than 7,100 new cases. The count in Florida grew by 5,500 in a day, an increase of 25% compared to the record of the previous week and three times the level just two weeks ago.

In Texas, which began to lift the restrictions of the confinement may 1, the hospital admissions have doubled, and the new cases to triple in two weeks.

Governor Greg Abbott told the channel KFDA-TV that the state goes through a “massive outbreak” and may require new local restrictions to preserve space for hospitalizations in some places.

In the eight hospitals of Houston Methodist in Texas, the count of patients with COVID-19 has increased threefold in the last month, at 312. Approximately 20% of the testing of coronavirus that are now the hospitals are positive, compared with between 2% and 4% in mid-may.

If that trend doesn’t change, the chain of hospitals with 2,000 beds would be 600 patients with coronavirus in the next three weeks and would be forced to cancel surgeries not essential, said Boom.

“We need everyone to behave perfectly and work together perfectly,” to slow down the rate of infections, said Boom. “When I see a restaurant or a business in which the people are not following the guidelines, where they are abandoning the caution, that makes me mad”.

In Arizona, the cases will likely exceed the capacity of beds in the hospitals of the state in the coming weeks if the trend continues, said dr. Joseph Gerald, a professor of political of public health of the University of Arizona.

“We are in serious trouble,” said Gerald, who called the state to impose new restrictions on business, something that the republican governor Doug Ducey has refused to do. Without such measures, says Gerald, the balance of deaths will occur at levels “unprecedented”.

Dr. Peter Hotez, an expert in infectious diseases, said that he is concerned that the states wasted the time they have left to prevent a crisis much greater.

“We are still speaking of subtleties, we are discussing if we should wear masks or not, and we still do not understand that a vaccine is not going to rescue,” said Hotez, of the School of Medicine, Baylor, Texas.

Initially, governor Abbott, also a republican, forbade local officials penalized or multaran people for not wearing masks when he began to be reopened by the state. After cases are fired, Abbott said last week that cities and counties could allow the business would require masks.

In Florida, several counties and cities have recently begun to require face masks in public places and penalizing businesses that do comply with the regulations of estrangement public.

In an indication of the change of the outbreak in the country, New York, Connecticut and New Jersey, announced that it will require visitors from states with high rates of infection must be quarantined for 14 days. It is a change from march, when the governor of Florida Ron DeSantis issued a similar order for the visitors to the New York area, where then were an increase in cases.

Why does California have low COVID-19 numbers in the US drama? – Telemundo 52

LOS ANGELES – Early confinement and other prevention measures promoted by the state government have allowed California, with more than 40 million inhabitants and some 300 deaths from COVID-19, to become an example of how to deal with the coronavirus pandemic in United States.

So far, the nation’s largest metropolis, Los Angeles, with more than 10 million citizens, has recorded fewer than 6,000 cases and 132 deaths, far from New York City, which has 8 and a half million inhabitants. and it has confirmed some 130,000 infections and more than 4,000 deaths.

“California has been doing quite well in the COVID-19 pandemic, with a relatively low number of infected per 100,000 people and a low death rate,” said Professor Karin Michels, head of the Department of Epidemiology at the School of Public Health, University of California Los Angeles (UCLA).

PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES

California Governor Gavin Newsom was one of the first in the country to enact relatively strict confinement, allowing only “essential” activities such as going to the grocery store and pharmacy, and exercising respect for safety distances between people.

In contrast, eight states – Arkansas, Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, South Carolina, Utah, and Wyoming – have not mandated their residents to stay home.

“The governor issued ‘home security’ and ‘shelter’ orders relatively quickly. Universities like UCLA and other large employers closed even earlier and sent people to work, teach and study from home,” said Michels, who has extensive experience in disease prevention, public health and statistical methods.

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, California schools may continue to be closed until the end of August.

Newsom also took the initiative to decree the closure of schools, which will remain closed until next year, as a preventive measure; in asking President Donald Trump to send a hospital ship to Los Angeles to support local hospitals before it reached a hypothetical peak in the number of cases, which has not yet occurred; and in closing the state’s beaches and parks.

Another point that seems to have helped so far in the exceptional case of California against COVID-19, according to experts, is the low population density of the state, which reduces the possibility of contagion and allows better compliance with the rules of social distancing.

“TO
 Despite having a large population, Californians do not live in
as dense as New Yorkers. Cities spread with
Few skyscrapers: Relative to other states, many more people in
 California lives in houses, not in apartment buildings or buildings
high, “summarizes Michels, who is based on data from a study of his
college.

YOUNG PEOPLE, LESS DEATHS PER CAPITA

California has had a much lower per capita death rate than most of the nation’s largest states, with the exception of Texas.

“The state has a low average age and a high
density of healthcare facilities, which may have contributed to
 the low mortality rate, “explained Michels.

According to a recent study published in The Lancet, the mortality rate among those infected with 20 years of age is 0.03%, while for those 70 years of age it is 8.6%.

Cautious tone

The
 Californian authorities have projected alarming numbers in the
recent weeks, although so far those estimates have not been
compliment.

Newsom himself foresaw two weeks ago that more than half the state’s population, or about 25 million people, would become infected, so he begged its residents to follow the guidelines to the letter.

For his part, the mayor of Los Angeles, Eric Garcetti, did not hesitate to forecast that the city “would follow in the footsteps of New York” in number of cases, a catastrophic scenario that is still far away.

COVID-19 affects children differently than adults. This is what the doctors say in the following video.

The United States on Monday exceeded 10,000 deaths from coronavirus, with 10,335 and almost 350,000 infected, making it the third country with the most deaths after Italy and Spain, according to the count of the Center for Systems, Science and Engineering (CSSE) from Johns Hopkins University (Maryland).

The new data is known after this Sunday
President Donald Trump, during his usual daily press conference,
make sure “this will probably be the hardest week, between this
week and next, and there will be a lot of death. ”

The state of New York, the great epicenter of the pandemic in the United States, accumulates with these latest figures a total of 4,758 deaths and 130,689 confirmed cases of COVID-19, compared to just over 122,000 that it had a day earlier.

The PP postpones the meeting with Pedro Snchez next week and insists that “his will to agree is not credible”

The meeting between the Prime Minister, Pedro Snchez, and the head of the opposition, Pablo Casado, is still in the air. After the disagreement caused yesterday by the announcement by the Executive in a press conference that the PP leader and the rest of the parliamentary spokespersons would be summoned tomorrow to discuss with the president his offer for an economic and social reconstruction pact,MoncloaandGnovaThey continue to negotiate this meeting.

The Government has confirmed this morning that it is “launching” this attempted agreement, which includes political parties, employers, unions and regional presidents, and that it is “convening” the spokespersons of the parliamentary groups from highest to lowest, in video calls. which will start tomorrow and last until Friday.

But he notes that “the meeting with Casado is pending” and “the teams are still in contact through the usual channels,” referring to the heads of cabinet of both who are responsible for closing this appointment.

The PP, for its part, has issued a statement in which it reveals that “before the requested meeting, today through the usual channels, to discuss medium-term proposals and not urgent shock plans,” both parties are “coordinating a date to keep it early next week. “

For thepopular“Pedro Snchez’s will to pact is not credible after trying to blow up all the bridges, insulting Pablo Casado in the same session in which he supported the most drastic measure in our democratic history in which his partners withdrew his support.” “And when he has only spent four minutes on the phone in the last 24 days, and he informs him of his meetings in the press.”

Gnova sources assure this newspaper that their intention is to announce the meetings “jointly”, and not “through the press”, as the Prime Minister did without first notifying the opposition leader. In any case, the possibility of a pact is still very remote, since the PP believes “the basis for any agreement is trust, but no one knows anymore” about Snchez. “He has deceived so many people so much that they no longer believe him or his own partners,” they insist.

The future conversation between both leaders has been weighed down by the mistrust that has been installed in the PP about Snchez’s intentions with this agreement and by the Government’s claim that the opposition unambiguously support him in the coronavirus health crisis and, above all, in the economic and social consequences that it is already producing and that will worsen, even if the disease is managed to be controlled.

Yesterday the PP already showed its displeasure because it found out about this possible meeting through the press conference of the government spokesperson, Mara Jess Montero, and considered it a provocation. In a statement they pointed out that it was an “insult” and a new rebuff. “In the afternoon, the director of the Cabinet of Casasdo,Pablo HispnHe called Ivn Redondo to show his anger and demand to agree on the date between them. According to government sources, they are still negotiating.

Moncloa sources insist that Pedro Snchez maintains his “full disposition” to meet “as soon as possible” with Casado and even opens the door to “tomorrow, Friday or Saturday.” “It is not the time for confrontation but for unity,” they point out.

The attempt to close this telematic meeting also occurs after a hard confrontation between the Executive and the opposition today in Congress, in the first control session during the state of alarm. Today the criticisms of the PP to the management of Snchez have intensified after weeks demanding a more direct dialogue in the management of this crisis. Both more information and agree on measures for support than thosepopularhave given to the state of alarm and successive extensions.

Pedro Snchez s has already met with the president of Ciudadanos, Ins Arrimadas, this Thursday at 13:00; with Laura Borrs (Junts per Catalunya), at 12:30; or with Gabriel Rufin (ERC) on Friday.

Abascal refuses to participate: “It is propaganda”

The Arrimadas team has explained that they will transfer their proposal to Snchez to start working on “reconstruction pacts that ensure that the entire response to the coronavirus crisis is sensible, moderate and agreed between the Government, the opposition and the agents social”.

The Government, in a well-known note this afternoon, thanks all these groups “for their availability” and values ​​”the determining role that all democratic parties must play in this great agreement.”

For its part, Vox maintains a complete break with the Executive and rejects any participation in the new La Moncloa pacts. Santiago Abascal has refused the invitation of the Presidency of the Government to have a telephone conversation with Pedro Snchez tomorrow. As he explained, he refuses to talk to the president because this forum is only “propaganda” when “decisive actions” are needed in the face of the health and economic crises caused by the coronavirus.

The dialogue between the parties is already non-existent. “We will only go to this government through the rostrum of Congress and we will do so to demand its immediate resignation,” stressed Abascal, who accuses the government of being “negligent, false and unfair” and being the first to dynamite the unity of the political forces having a vice president like Pablo Iglesias who “systematically attacks the head of state”. For this reason, Vox today sent the PSOE and the PP a formal proposal to separate Snchez with a concentration government.

Number of newly infected and recovered almost equal NDR.de – News – Lower Saxony

Claudia Schröder informed on Tuesday about the status of the corona measures in Lower Saxony.

Is there a turnaround in the corona pandemic? The number of people actively infected with the coronavirus in Lower Saxony on Tuesday with 226 new infections was only marginally larger than the number of newly recovered people (221). The deputy head of the crisis team, Claudia Schröder, had said on Tuesday afternoon in Hanover that only 141 new infections had been reported. However, she did not yet want to derive a general trend reversal from these daily values ​​and continued to urge strict adherence to the contact restrictions. “We have not yet made the curve tip.”

More than 900 corona cases in hospitals

According to information from the evening, the number of infected people in Lower Saxony rose by 226 to 6,444 on Tuesday, and that of people classified as healthy to just under 2,000. More than 900 people are treated in the hospital, 228 of them in the intensive care unit. 164 of these patients require artificial ventilation. The number of people who died from the disease rose to 122 after 108 the previous day.

Continue to minimize physical contacts

Schröder also informed about the new version of the Social Contact Restriction Ordinance effective Wednesday. Larger gatherings and celebrations should continue to be avoided, “reducing physical contacts to an absolute minimum”. However, Schröder made it clear that certain visits are not subject to the restrictions of the legal regulation. Weddings and funerals for up to ten people are possible, the accompaniment of the dying is permitted, and pregnant women and children can still be attended.

Automatic car washes are allowed to open

After intensive consultations, the state government also decided to reopen automatic car washes, said Claudia Schröder. Flower shops are likely to continue to sell goods, but flower trading on weekly markets remains prohibited. The churches are allowed to open their rooms for “silent prayer” while observing the distance rules at Easter, but worship services will only be available in digital form at Easter.

Annoyance at sharing data

There is still anger in the state government over whether data from people who have been quarantined because of the coronavirus can be passed on to the police by the health authorities. Since this practice became known in Lower Saxony through a corresponding decree sent on March 31, a violent dispute has raged between the Ministry of Health and the State Data Protection Commissioner Barbara Thiel. The Ministry of Social Affairs considers this practice “absolutely necessary”, as Claudia Schröder confirmed on Tuesday. Thiel calls the data transfer “unacceptable and unacceptable”. The “illegal and stockpiling data transmission must be stopped immediately”, she demands.

Editor’s note: In an older version of the article, there was talk that the number of those recovered for the first time was greater than that of the newly infected. This trend has shifted due to figures corrected by the Lower Saxony Health Office late Tuesday afternoon.
