U.S. reports record 126,400 new coronavirus cases

first_imgIn El Paso, Texas, County Judge Ricardo Samaniego ordered the closure of all nonessential businesses as hospitals there were beginning to get overwhelmed by the rise in Covid-19 patients. And Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker rolled out new restrictions on businesses in Chicago and some surrounding counties amid a rise in cases there.Epidemiologists and medical experts are warning that the dynamics of this phase of the pandemic are different from what the country experienced in the spring and summer. Whereas earlier in the pandemic, the virus was spreading in certain parts of the country, it’s now spreading rapidly in nearly every community across the country, Christine Peterson, an epidemiologist at the University of Iowa, said in a phone interview.“It’s going to be bad and I think it’s going to be bad in a different way, because instead of having these pictures of morgue trucks and densely populated areas with a lot of patients, this is going to be lots of smaller places,” she said. “So it’s going to be harder to see the obvious impact because it’s so spread out in these really small town hospitals, but they’re really going to be struggling.”- Advertisement – In the spring, the virus spread most widely in the New York City-area as well as in a handful of other cities. In the summer, it spread most rapidly across the so-called Sun Belt. But now, data from Hopkins shows that adjusted for population, the virus is spreading most rapidly across the American heartland, such as the Dakotas, Wisconsin and Iowa.Remote health systems in these areas might find themselves more easily overwhelmed by an influx of Covid-19 patients than medical centers in big cities, Peterson said. She added that while doctors have learned a lot about how to effectively treat Covid-19 patients, that doesn’t mean every doctor is equipped to do so.“The thing to remember is doctors, as a population, have learned how to treat this better, but that doesn’t mean that the doctor in northeastern Iowa has seen this disease,” she said. “They’re seeing it now; they didn’t see it in March.”Dr. Megan Ranney, an emergency physician and director of the Brown Lifespan Center for Digital Health, said in an interview with CNBC that “the worst days of the pandemic are almost certainly still ahead of us.”She said maintaining a strong health-care workforce will be a real challenge in the months ahead. The country still has a limited supply of personal protective equipment like masks and medical gowns that protect health workers against infection, she said. Not to mention, doctors and nurses are increasingly exhausted by the relentless surge of new Covid-19 patients, she added.“Whereas in those early phases, we were able to direct some extra resources to the places that were hardest hit, now, we are watching it spread everywhere so that every American is at risk but also every hospital and every health-care system is getting stressed out,” she said. It’s not just cases that are rising; 19 states reported a record-high number of people currently hospitalized with Covid-19, based on a seven-day average, according to a CNBC analysis of data compiled by the Covid Tracking Project, which is run by journalists at The Atlantic.The average number of people currently hospitalized with Covid-19 is up by at least 5% in 38 states, according to CNBC’s analysis of Covid Tracking Project’s data.The surge in new cases and hospitalizations are prompting officials in some states and cities to roll out new restrictions, though they’re not nearly as severe as the lockdown measures implemented in March and April. The governor of Connecticut last week rolled back the state’s reopening amid early signs of an expanding outbreak. In Massachusetts, the governor has imposed a curfew on some businesses and asked residents to remain home between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m.- Advertisement – The United States reported a record one-day spike of 126,400 new cases of the coronavirus as medical experts warn that the outbreak is worsening across the country and could lead to a devastating winter.The U.S. has now reported a new record one-day spike in cases everyday over the past three days, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. Over the past seven days, the country has reported an average of more than 98,500 new cases as of Friday, up over 25% compared with a week ago.- Advertisement – – Advertisement –last_img read more

What makes the modern NFL quarterback? Kyler Murray, Josh Allen, Lamar Jackson and the next generation | NFL News

first_imgFollowing in Jackson’s blurry footsteps is Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray, who is enjoying his own sophomore breakout season and, similarly, goes against the traditional height and size combination of an NFL QB. At 5-foot-10 and 207 lbs, he became the shortest quarterback ever drafted in the first round. But that hasn’t stopped him.Like Jackson, he is simply a nightmare to bring down. When you think you’ve got him in the backfield, he shimmies and pops right out. In the open field, he has a deceptive second gear. Jackson bursts through the Philadelphia Eagles’ defence to score a 37-yard touchdown You can’t deny it is working – Jackson last week improved to 25-5 (.833) over his first 30 NFL starts, tying the best mark by a starting quarterback in the Super Bowl era, held by Hall of Famer Dan Marino.With just 130 more rushing yards this season, he will become the first player with at least 5,000 passing yards (currently 5,841) and 2,500 rushing yards (2,370) through his first three seasons in NFL history – all at a slender 6-foot-2 and 212 pounds.

WHO invokes flu rules a year early

first_imgMay 26, 2006 (CIDRAP News) – Member states of the World Health Organization (WHO) agreed today to invoke a set of health regulations related to influenza a year early because of the threat that H5N1 avian flu will trigger a flu pandemic.The voluntary regulations are part of the International Health Regulations (IHR), which were approved by the World Health Assembly a year ago but are not scheduled to take effect until June 2007.”The provisions identified for early voluntary compliance include those relating to rapid and transparent notification, support to countries that request it in investigating and controlling [influenza] outbreaks, and providing essential information including recommendations for control measures,” the WHO said in a news release today.The resolution passed by the WHA notes that rapid detection and reporting of human cases of avian flu “underpin WHO’s ability to issue a reliable risk assessment and declare an appropriate phase of pandemic alert.”Among other things, the voluntary measures adopted under the resolution call on countries to:Promptly report to the WHO any probable or confirmed human illnesses caused by any new flu virus subtypeDesignate an official IHR “focal point” to communicate information and collaborate with the WHO on risk assessment (the language doesn’t specify whether this would be an individual or an agency)Designate IHR “contact points”Provide WHO collaborating centers with information and biological materials related to highly pathogenic avian influenza and other novel flu strains in a timely mannerThe resolution also covers regulations related to surveillance, information-sharing, consultation, verification, public health response, and public health measures for travelers.The measure calls on the WHO director-general to “further accelerate steps” to set up a roster of experts [on avian and pandemic flu] and to invite proposals for its membership.”In addition, the WHO chief is asked to help mobilize international help for needy countries affected by avian flu and to search for solutions to the shortage of, and unequal access to, flu vaccines.Anders Nordstrom, acting WHO director-general, said the agency has increased its ability to provide on-the-ground help to avian-flu–affected countries in the past year, according to an Agence France-Presse (AFP) report published today.”The number of missions from WHO has gone up since the last year,” said Nordstrom. “And now we expect with this decision, which is more of a political commitment, that we will be able to accelerate even more.”Nordstrom, who was appointed after the death of Dr. Lee Jong-wook on May 22, said the WHO and affected countries need more people and money to cope with avian flu, according to AFP.At a conference in Beijing last January, donor countries pledged $1.9 billion to help poor countries prepare for a pandemic. Nordstrom could not provide details on how much of the promised money has been given so far. But he said that only $12 million of $89 million promised to the WHO has come in, according to AFP.See also:WHO resolution on flu provisions in the IHR read more
