Were going to continue updating this file with the most important things to know about the coronavirus in Connecticut every day: daily confirmed coronavirus cases were down somewhat on Friday, with only 141 new confirmed cases statewide. The most notable increase in cases, at least in big cities, was Hartford, where there continues to be an increase in the average number of new cases. Deaths from coronavirus, though increased to four statewide in a single day notable, as there was an increase of one on Thursday and two on Wednesday. Sacred Heart University has announced a total of 67 positive coronavirus cases, including 34 new cases in the last seven days. College are randomly testing students without symptoms, and theyre only testing a small percentage of the student body this far, so it is possible that the number of cases will rise precipitously, at Sacred Heart and elsewhere, as more students are test. Back in July, CDC said tests were not really necessary. Except for rare situations, test - base strategy is no longer recommend, agency write. At the time, many epidemiologists and public health experts were flummox. Then, Friday, CDC reversed that guidance, saying, Due to the significance of asymptomatic and pre - symptomatic transmission, this guidance further reinforces the need to test asymptomatic persons, including close contacts of people with documented SARS - CoV - 2 infection. Not many people are comfortable with the idea of vaccine. The number of adults who say they would like to get coronavirus vaccine has dropped significantly, according to a poll published by Pew Research Center. Only 51 percent of American adults say they would definitely get vaccinate, with another 30 percent saying they would probably get vaccine.

Overview

The virus that causes COVID - 19 is thought to spread mainly from person to person, through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into lungs. Spread is more likely when people are in close contact with one another. The more closely a person interacts with others and the longer that interaction, higher the risk of COVID - 19 spread. Covid - 19 may be spread by people who are not showing symptoms. It may be possible that person can get COVID - 19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes. This is not thought to be the main way viruses spreads, but we are still learning more about how this virus spread.

Budget Outlook

Connecticut's finances are considerably worse than even ugly scenario Gov. Ned Lamont administration paint in early May, if analysts behind the new private study are correct. A Coronavirus - induced recession could erode MORE than 6. 5 billion in STATE revenues next fiscal year, two - and - hundred times the gap administration officials predict if researchers from Arizona STATE and Old Dominion universities are correct. Last time CONNECTICUT faced DEFICIT close to 4 billion, in 2011, then - Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and the legislature responded with tax increases worth MORE than 1. 8 billion. Researchers ' new nightmare scenario hinges on the relationship between unemployment and lose revenue. And economists broadly concede the current job market is facing unprecedented volatility, making any prediction equally uncertain. Fiscal crisis is unparalleled nationally given the rapid expansion of global pandemic, failure OF the Federal Government to effectively respond to emerging pandemic, synchronized economic shock across states and variation in STATE efforts to contain it, write economists Christos. Makridis and Robert M. Mcnab. Researchers studied state revenue and LABOR market trends from 1994 through 2019, finding that for every 1 percent rise in employment, tax revenues, on average, jump 1. 56 percent. Income and corporation taxes tend to climb even faster relative to job growth. Comparing these trends with unprecedented job losses during this pandemic, Makridis and McNab project states, on average, would lose 20 percent of annual revenues. Most OF states facing larger - than - average drop are heavily reliant on income tax receipts to fuel their respective budgets. Connecticut is projected to face 32. 7 percent drop, 10 - worse of all states, with neighboring New York ranking first at 40 percent. Lamonts BUDGET director, Office OF Policy and Management Secretary Melissa McCaw, warned in early May that STATE revenues if the current recession were similar to the downturn of 2007 - 09 would leave 2. 7 billion hole in the fiscal year beginning July 1. And roughly 90 percent OF that gap is due to eroding revenues rather than cost increases. 2. 7 billion gap is imposing enough, representing a gap OF 13. 5 percent in General Fund. Administration officials say it would take the entire Rainy Day Fund, plus about 500 million in spending cuts and revenue enhancements, to close that gap. But if the shortfall is close to 6. 5 billion, as Makridis and McNab project, one - third OF Connecticut's BUDGET would BE unfunded. Even Rainy Day Fund, which is still expected to be held 2. 2 billion after plugging DEFICIT in the fiscal year that ended June 30 would solve less than half OF problem CONNECTICUT face in July. And if revenue losses for 2021 - 22 and 2022 - 23 fiscal years also are larger than the 2 billion - per - annum projected by the Lamont administration, STATE officials could be eyeing nothing but ugly BUDGET options next spring. Both the Lamont administration and the House chair OF legislature Tax - writing panel advised Thursday against panic.
