As virus flares globally, new strategies target hot spots

  As virus flares globally, new strategies target hot spots NEW YORK (AP) — After entire nations were shut down during the first surge of the coronavirus earlier this year, some countries and U.S. states are trying more targeted measures as cases rise again around the world, especially in Europe and the Americas. New York’s new round of virus shutdowns zeroes in on individual neighborhoods, closing schools and businesses in hot spots measuring just a couple of square miles.

The fall resurgence has led some local and state officials to rein in their reopening plans, as hospitalization numbers increase and states report case records. Building on already high case counts, health experts have warned this rise could be worse than any the US has seen before.

"We've never really had waves in the sense of up and then down to a good baseline," Dr. Anthony Fauci said Monday in a Yahoo Finance Interview. "It's been up and wavering up and down, until now we're at the highest baseline we've ever been -- which is really quite precarious."

At 69,967 new cases per day, the 7-day average of new cases is at the highest levels since the pandemic began, bringing the national death toll to 225,720, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.

With the US election just over a week away, millions of Americans have been heading to the polls this fall with healthcare and drug prices as their top India’s total coronavirus infections stood at 7.91 million on Monday, having risen by 45,148 cases in the last 24 hours, health ministry data showed.

And state numbers are worrisome too: 37 States are reporting 10% more new cases compared to last week, and 21 states saw their highest 7-day averages on Sunday.

Whether these states are seeing a new wave of cases or just an exacerbation of the original wave, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said is just semantics.

"No matter how you look at it, it's not good news," Fauci said.

Officials reinstate restrictions

Officials in states and cities alike are responding to the bad news by rolling back reopening plans.

With 1,223 new cases and 948 hospitalizations on Monday, New Jersey is experiencing a spike, Gov. Phil Murphy said.

"Everywhere you look, it is screaming out that this is surging right now folks, and we have all got to band together and turn these numbers down, particularly hospitalizations and loss of life," Murphy said.

Newark, which is in the counties with the top five case counts, will begin implementing restrictions including closing non-essential businesses by 8 p.m. starting Tuesday, according to a press release.

Despite pledges, Czechs face 2nd lockdown as system totters

  Despite pledges, Czechs face 2nd lockdown as system totters PRAGUE (AP) — Czechs had been assured it wouldn't happen again. But amid a record surge of coronavirus infections that's threatening the entire health system with collapse, the Czech Republic is adopting on Thursday exactly the same massive restrictions it slapped on citizens in the spring. Prime Minister Andrej Babis had repeatedly said these measures would never return. “We have no time to wait,” Babis explained Wednesday. “The surge is enormous.”Babis apologized for the huge impact the restrictions will have on everyday life but said if they were not taken “our health system would collapse between Nov 7-11.

The coronavirus death toll in the US could have reached more than half a million by February, a new study has predicted. According to an analysis by Reuters, hospitals have seen a 36 per cent rise in coronavirus patients over the past four weeks with hospitalisations reaching 40,264 on Wednesday.

The announcements came as the UK reported 20,890 new Covid-19 cases and 102 further deaths overnight. More than eight million people will soon be living under the toughest coronavirus restrictions as two new regions move into the top tier this week .

"This is not the first time COVID-19 has threatened our city and its residents at this magnitude and once again, we will meet this challenge with determination and guided by data," said Newark Mayor Ras Baraka in the statement. "We are Newark strong and can get through this together. We did it once before and we can do it again."

In Massachusetts, 13 communities are rolling back their reopening plans as well after the state reported more than 1,000 new cases for three days in a row.

The communities are going back to step one of Phase 3 of the state's plan, which closes many indoor recreation businesses, reduces occupancy in establishments like gyms and museums to 40%, restricts outdoor gatherings at event venues to 50 people and reduces outdoor performances to 25% capacity.

In Idaho, even though Gov. Brad Little said the economy will remain open, the state moved back from Stage 4 of the reopening plan to Stage 3.

"It doesn't mean in-person church will end. It doesn't mean we're restricting travel in or out of the state," he added.

"It especially doesn't mean that we should go to for remote learning in our schools."

Ryan Reynolds, Jana Kramer and More Stars Voting for the First Time

  Ryan Reynolds, Jana Kramer and More Stars Voting for the First Time They’ll never forget their firsts! Ryan Reynolds, Jana Kramer and more stars are casting their votes for the first time in the November 2020 election — and encouraging their fans to do the same. The Deadpool actor, 43, was born in Vancouver, Canada, and earned his dual American citizenship in 2018. On Thursday, October 22, he revealed via Instagram that he and wife Blake Lively had successfully voted by mail. “This is my first time voting in America,” Reynolds wrote. “I’d like to thank my wife Blake for making my first time so gentle and loving. It was super scary at first, then exciting and now I’m a little tired. But proud. #VoteEarly.” Lively, 33, joked in her own Instagram post the same day that her husband was “understandably scared” to take on the big responsibility for the first time. “It all happened so fast. Like, REALLY fast. He wept. I pretended to weep. Then he called all his friends. #voteearly,” she wrote. Now more than ever, celebrities are using their platforms to show their followers that when it comes to presidential elections, every vote counts. On October 22, Kramer, 36, stated that she spent too much of her life believing the opposite after she and husband Mike Caussin both voted for the first time. “I hate to admit this but I am anyways….This is the first time I’ve ever voted . The first time Mike has ever voted,” she captioned an Instagram selfie with the retired football player, 33, outside of their polling place.

Halloween plans change as infections rise in children

As coronavirus cases rise across the nation, the impact on children has grown.

Over the past two weeks, the amount of cases among children has increased by 14%, The American Academy of Pediatrics said Monday.

The group, which represents pediatricians, says about 792,188 children have been infected in the US as of October 22. And the AAP said 94,555 new cases among children 17 and under were reported from October 8 to October 22.

To stay safe and prevent infection, children may not be able to celebrate Halloween the way they are used to this year, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said

"There are lots of ways to celebrate the spooky season that are safer than traditional activities," Dr. Michael St. Louis of CDC's Community Guidance Team said on a call with community leaders.

Options include virtual costume parties, scavenger hunts for candy, small outdoor and distanced gatherings and one-way trick or treating, where candy is placed at the end of the driveway for children to collect, he said.

People may have to find creative ways to incorporate face masks into their costume this year, St. Louis noted.

"It's important to understand that a costume mask is not a substitute for a cloth face mask, unless it has two or more layers of breathable fabric and fits snugly around the nose, mouth and under the chin," he said.

Masks may have to stay on into 2021

A coronavirus vaccine may not be widely available until next year, so people are going to have to wear masks for quite a while longer, Fauci and two top staffers argued Monday.

They spoke out in defense of cloth masks -- recently attacked by Sen. Rand Paul -- and said taking tests regularly is not enough to excuse people from wearing a mask.

Masks are useful for blocking large particles coming from people's mouth and nose, but the researchers said that recent reports show that aerosols from singing, shouting or heavy breathing can linger and travel farther.

"Light-scattering experiments indicate that 1 minute of loud speaking potentially can generate more than 1,000 virion-containing aerosols that may linger in the air in a closed, stagnant environment," they said. "Therefore, the commonly observed practice of individuals removing their mask when speaking is not advisable."

And with winter coming, people will have to wear masks even more, they said.

The Daily 202: Despite GDP growth, polls suggest Trump’s advantage on economic stewardship is narrowing .
Three-quarters of a million Americans filed jobless claims last week. President Trump’s failure to negotiate a coronavirus relief deal with Congress before the election, record-breaking surges in new covid-19 infections, a tanking stock market, declining consumer confidence in battleground states and ominous layoff announcements appear to have taken at least a marginal toll on what has been his biggest polling advantage amid the pandemic: perceived competency at managing the economy.
