General | Latest Info

As of October 15, 216 025 deaths from Coronavirus Disease 2019 have been reported in the United States *; however, this number might underestimate the total impact of the pandemic on mortality. Measures of excess deaths have been used to estimate the impact of public health pandemics or disasters, particularly when there are questions about underascertainment of deaths directly attributable to event or cause. Excess deaths are defined as the number of people who have died from all causes, in excess of the expected number of deaths due to place and time. This report describes trends and demographic patterns in excess deaths during January 26 - October 3 2020. Expect numbers of deaths were estimated using overdispersed Poisson regression models with spline terms to account for seasonal patterns, using provisional mortality data from CDCs National Vital Statistics System. Weekly numbers of deaths by age group and race / ethnicity were assessed to examine the difference between the weekly number of deaths occurring in 2020 and the average number occurring in the same week during 2015 - 2019 and percentage change in 2020. Overall, estimated 299 028 excess deaths have occurred in the United States from late January through October 3 2020, with two thirds of these attributed to COVID - 19. The largest percentage increases were seen among adults aged 25 - 44 years and among Hispanic or Latino people. These results provide information about the degree to which COVID - 19 deaths might be underascertained and inform efforts to prevent mortality directly or indirectly associated with COVID - 19 pandemic, such as efforts to minimize disruptions to health care. Estimates of excess deaths can provide a comprehensive account of mortality related to the COVID - 19 pandemic, including deaths that are directly or indirectly attributable to COVID - 19. Estimates of numbers of deaths directly attributable to COVID - 19 might be limited by factors such as availability and use of diagnostic testing and accurate and complete reporting of cause of death information on death certificate. Excess death analyses are not subject to these limitations because they examine historical trends in all - cause mortality to determine the degree to which observed numbers of deaths differ from historical norms. In April 2020, CDCs National Center for Health Statistics will begin publishing data on excess deaths associated with the COVID - 19 pandemic. This report describes trends and demographic patterns in the number of excess deaths occurring in the United States from January 26 2020, through October 3 2020, and differences by age and race / ethnicity using provisional mortality data from NVSS. Excess deaths are typically defined as the number of people who have died from all causes, in excess of the expected number of deaths for give place and time. A detailed description of the methodology for estimating excess deaths has been described previously. Briefly, expected numbers of deaths are estimated using overdispersed Poisson regression models with spline terms to account for seasonal patterns. Average expect number, as well as upper bound of 95% prediction interval, are used as thresholds to determine the number of excess deaths and percentage excess.

Vaccine news

Health authorities in Russia have approved the second COVID - 19 Vaccine before Phase 3 trial. Vaccine has been created by a former bio - weapons research laboratory. This is the second time a country has by - passed approval of drugs in a desperate move to control rising coronavirus cases. Moderna has received confirmation from the European Medicine Agency to apply for European Union Marketing Authorisation for its COVID - 19 Vaccine candidate, mRNA - 1273. This following letter of intent submitted to allow Moderna to evaluate the prospect of submitting Marketing Authorisation Application for Vaccine candidate to EMA. Turkey is set to conduct Human Trials for two of its potential COVID - 19 Vaccines. According to Health Minister Fahrettin Koca, these vaccine candidates are being developed locally. Approximately, 14 institutions are currently engaging in research of Vaccine to fight novel coronavirus disease, report Hurriyet Daily News. There have been positive results from pre - Clinical and Clinical phases of Vaccine development, Koca add. Relief Therapeutics and NeuroRx have announced topline results from an open - label study of RLF - 100 for COVID - 19. In the study, 21 critical patients with respiratory failure and hospitalise in ICU were treated with RLF - 100 and were compared to 24 control patients. The study found that overall 81% of RLF - 100 - treat patients survived beyond 60 days, compared to 17% of control patients. Patients WHO were treated with RLF - 100 show nine - fold increase in probability of survival and RECOVERY from respiratory failure.


Lockdown updates

President Trump has again claimed he is immune from Covid and said that he thinks his son Barron, 14, didnt even know he had coronavirus. Trumps ' youngest son, Barron, tested positive for coronavirus while his parents were recovering from Covid - 19 but never showed symptoms of the disease, his mother say. New York Mayor Bill de Blasio says city health officials are making progress in reducing infection rates in areas of Brooklyn and Queens where coronavirus cases have been spiking recently. Intensive - care units in Texas ' hardest - hit cities and towns are filling up as a new wave of infections grips the second - biggest US state. The El Paso area has just 10 ICU beds available after hospital admissions jumped by more than 80% in the past week. Germany: Germany has recorded its highest daily coronavirus cases since the start of the pandemic. It added 6 638 new infections on Thursday, eclipsing the 28 March figure of 6 294. Czech Republic: Czech Republic has also set a new record for daily Covid cases, recording 9 544 new infections, highest since the pandemic start, Health Ministry data show. South Korea: South Korea log 110 more coronavirus cases in 24 hours, bringing total infections to 24 988, according to data from Korea Centers for Disease Prevention and Control.

Discussion

Base on NVSS data, excess deaths have occurred every week in the United States since March 2020. Estimate 299 028 more people than expected have died since January 26 2020; approximately two thirds of these deaths were attributed to COVID - 19. A recent analysis of excess deaths from March through July reports very similar findings, but that study does not include more recent data through September. Although more excess deaths have occurred among older age groups, relative to past years, adults aged 25 - 44 years have experienced the largest average percentage increase in the number of deaths from all causes from late January through October 3rd 2020. Age distribution of COVID - 19 Deaths shifted toward younger age groups from May through August; however, these disproportionate increases might also be related to underlying trends in other causes of death. Future analyses might shed light on the extent to which increases among younger age groups are driven by COVID - 19 or by other causes of death. Among racial and ethnic groups, smallest average percentage increase in numbers of Deaths compared with previous years occurred among white people and the largest for Hispanic people, with intermediate increases among AI / AN, Black, and Asian people These disproportionate increases among certain racial and ethnic groups are consistent with noted disparities in COVID - 19 mortality. * Findings in this report are subject to at least five limitations. First, weighting of provisional NVSS mortality data might not fully account for reporting lags, particularly in recent weeks. Estimate numbers of deaths in most recent weeks are likely underestimated and will increase as more data becomes available. Second, there is uncertainty associated with models used to generate expected numbers of deaths in give week. A range of values for excess death estimates is provided elsewhere, but these ranges might not reflect all of sources of uncertainty, such as the completeness of provisional data. Third, different methods or models for estimating expected numbers of deaths might lead to different results. Estimates of the number or percentage of deaths above average levels by race / ethnicity and age reported here might not sum up to total numbers of excess deaths reported elsewhere, which might have been estimated using different methodologies. Fourth, using average numbers of deaths from past years might underestimate total expected numbers because of population growth or aging, or because of increasing trends in certain causes such as drug overdose mortality. Finally, estimates of excess deaths attributed to COVID - 19 might underestimate the actual number directly attributable to COVID - 19, because deaths from other causes might represent misclassified COVID - 19 - related deaths or deaths indirectly caused by pandemic. Specifically, Deaths from circulatory diseases, Alzheimer's disease and dementia, and respiratory diseases have increased in 2020 relative to past years, and it is unclear to what extent these represent misclassified COVID - 19 Deaths or Deaths indirectly related to pandemic. Despite these limitations, however, this report demonstrates important trends and demographic patterns in excess deaths that occurred during the COVID - 19 pandemic.

Latest tallies

The US death toll from coronavirus illness COVID - 19 rose above 222 000 on Thursday, and President Donald Trump again falsely claimed the virus was disappearing and criticized the media for its constant coverage of the crisis. The US leads the world by cases, AT 8. 3 million, and deaths AT 222 239, or about a fifth of the global tallies for cases and fatalities, according to data aggregated by Johns Hopkins University. The number of confirmed cases of COVID - 19 world - wide now stands AT 41. 3 million, Johns Hopkins data shows, and the death toll is 1. 13 million. At least 28 million people have recovered from COVID - 19. Brazil has the second highest death toll AT 155 403 and is third by cases AT 5. 3 million. India is second in cases with 7. 7 million, and third in deaths AT 116 616. Mexico has the fourth highest death toll AT 87 415 and the 10 highest case tally AT 867 559. The UK has 44 248 deaths, highest in Europe and fifth highest in the world, and 792 194 cases. China, where the disease was first reported late last year, has 91 055 cases and 4 739 fatalities, according to its official numbers.

Whats the economy saying?

The US economy expanded in October at the fastest pace in 20 months, new survey show, but companies are acting cautiously with coronavirus still spreading and the presidential election potentially trigging a major shift in business rules, MarketWatchs Jeffry Bartash report. IHS Markit PMI indexes for both the service and manufacturing sides of the economy rose in October. The Index is compiled from surveys of senior business executives. The index for services such as Health Care, technology and hospitality, by far the largest sector of the economy, climbed to 56. 0 in October from 54. 6 in the prior month. It was the highest level in 20 months. The index for the smaller but still large US manufacturing sector, meanwhile, edged up to 53. 3 of 53. 2 that was a month high.

What are companies saying?

Numbers underscore a sobering reality: United States has been hunker down for the past seven weeks to try to slow the spread of the virus, but reopening economy will make matters worse. There remain a large number of counties whose burden continues to grow, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warn. As the Administration privately predicts a sharp increase in deaths, public model that has been frequently cited by the White House revised its own estimates, doubling its projected death toll. The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation AT University of Washington is now estimating that there will be nearly 135 000 deaths in the United States through the beginning of August, more than double what it forecast on April 17, when it estimated 60 308 deaths by Aug. 4. The institute writes that revisions reflect rising mobility in most US States as well as easing of Social distancing measures expected in 31 States by May 11, indicating that growing contacts among people will promote transmission of Coronavirus. On Sunday, Mr. Trump said deaths in the United States could reach 100 000, twice as many as he had forecast two weeks ago. But that new number still underestimates what his own Administration is now predicting to be the total death toll by the end of May, much less in months to come. It Follow pattern for Mr. Trump, who has frequently understated the impact of disease. Were going to lose anywhere from 75 80 to 100 000 people, he said in a virtual town hall on Fox News on Sunday. That horrible thing. We should lose one person over this. The White House Respond that new federal government projections had not been vet. This data is not reflective of any of the modeling done by the task force or data that the task force has analyze, said Judd Deere, White House spokesman. Indiana, Kansas and Nebraska were among states that allowed reopening of some businesses on Monday even though they were seeing increasing cases, according to the New York Times database. Other states that have partly reopened while cases have continued to rise include Iowa, Minnesota, Tennessee and Texas, according to data. About half of all States have now begun reopening their economies in some significant way, which public health experts have warned could lead to a new wave of cases and deaths. The vast majority of Americans have not been exposed to the virus, there is no immunity, and the initial conditions that allowed this virus to spread really quickly across America have really change, says Dr. Larry Chang, Infectious - Diseases specialist AT Johns Hopkins University. While the country has stabilize, it has not really improve, as shown by data collected by Times. Case and death numbers remain on numbing, tragic plateau that is tilting only slightly downward. At least 1 000 people with the virus, and sometimes more than 2 000, have died every day for the last month.

HOW TO EXAMINE THE DATA:

Charts which simply show change in confirmed deaths over time are not very useful to answer the question of how the speed of outbreaks compares between different countries. This is because outbreaks of COVID - 19 do not begin at the same time in all countries. The trajectory for each country begins on the day when that country has 5 confirmed deaths. This allows you to compare how rapidly the number of confirmed deaths increases after an outbreak reaches similar stage in each country. Previous charts look at increase in total confirmed deaths - this chart shows the number of confirmed deaths per day. This trajectory chart shows whether countries have made progress in bringing down the curve of new deaths. To allow comparisons between countries, trajectory for each country begins on the day when that country first reports 5 daily deaths. By default, this chart is shown on logarithmic vertical axis. We explain why in the next section. If you are not familiar with logarithmic axes, we recommend you also look at this chart on linear axis. Visual representation on these different axes can look very different. Simply looking at the total or daily number of confirmed deaths does not allow the US to understand or compare the speed at which the toll is rising. The table here shows how long it has taken for the number of deaths to double in each country for which we have data. The table also shows the total number of confirmed deaths, and the number of daily new confirmed deaths, and how those numbers have changed over the last 14 days. In this document and many embed and link charts, we report and visualize data from the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control. 2 We make data used in our charts and tables downloadable as complete and structured. Csv file here. The European CDC publishes daily statistics on the COVID - 19 pandemic. Not just for Europe, but for the entire world. We rely on ECDC as they collect and harmonize data from around the world, which allows the US to compare what is happening in different countries. European CDC Data provides global perspective on evolving pandemic. The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control ECDC provides three statistical resources on COVID - 19 pandemic: ECDC makes all their data available in daily updated clean downloadable file. This get updated daily reflecting data collected up to 6: 00 and 10: 00 CET. The European CDC collects and aggregates data from countries around the world. Most up - to - date data for any particular country is therefore typically available earlier via National Health agencies than via ECDC. This lag between nationally available data and ECDC Data is not very long as ECDC publishes New Data daily. But it can be several hours.

The places hit hardest

Its milestone country was never supposed to reach. First, there were reassurances: Like miracle, it will disappear, President promised months ago. And then come shutdowns, with calls for coherent national strategy and optimistic project death tolls. But divine has not intervene. Shutdowns were lift, warnings ignored and predictions surpass. And now, novel coronavirus has officially killed more than 150 000 people in the United States, according to data gathered by WASHINGTON Post. While disease continues to kill the oldest with impunity, other disturbing trends have emerge. Among them: Hispanics make up an increasing proportion of COVID - 19 deaths. More than 25 800 people have been struck down by merciless pathogen, which now accounts for 1 out of every 5 deaths among Hispanics, according to Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention analyzed by Post. The American death count reached six figures just after Memorial Day. In the summer weeks that follow, leaders of WHO triumphantly reopen their States reverse course as coronavirus infections soar among their residents. Instead of jump - starting the economy, restart fuel viruss spread. The national fatality rate, in decline for most of June, began rising steadily in July, and scenes from the pandemic's darkest days overwhelmed hospitals and overflowing morgues of New York City were reenacted in States across the South and West. The contours of the crisis have not changed much: viruses have continued to deepen countrys divides and exploit its systemic inequities. Willingness to wear a mask, perhaps the most basic precaution, varies widely by political affiliation. And those hurt most by rampant spread are still overwhelmingly elderly and disproportionately people of color. New numbers published recently by CDC present one of the most complete pictures yet of pandemics evolving impact and shifting burden. When the virus first swept across the country, it devastated black communities, killing African Americans at a disproportionately high rate in nearly every jurisdiction that publishes race data. In recent weeks, Hispanics and Native Americans have made up an increasing proportion of COVID - 19 deaths. Disease now accounts for nearly 20 percent of all deaths among those groups, higher than any other race or ethnicity in recent weeks, according to Post analysis of CDC Data. Both in hot - spot States, and in States where the total number of deaths has decrease, Hispanics make up an increasing share of those deaths. Signal that pandemics shifting demographics are not due to its shifting geography. The death rate among Native Americans, meanwhile, has stayed somewhat consistent, even as it declines for other groups. States have reported an average of more than 1 000 virus - related deaths per day this week, highest rate since late May, and experts say the toll is likely to increase rapidly.

Cases at colleges and universities

A student at Appalachian State University, in Boone, NC, died after experiencing complications related to COVID - 19 infection, university confirmed Tuesday. Chad Dorrill was diagnosed with COVID - 19 earlier this month and later experienced complications, according to an announcement from the universitys Chancellor, Sheri Everts. Dorrill was a 19 - year - old sophomore majoring in exercise Science, High Country Press report. He will graduate from Ledford High School, in Davidson County, NC, in 2019. He was noted for his kindness and attention to others in statements posted to social media and in press reports. One acquaintance recalled him showing up at her door with a bag of toys for kitten shed just adopt. Dorrills death is one of the first reported among students - and the general undergraduate population - since some colleges resume in - person instruction this fall. However, differences in the way colleges track COVID - 19 infections and the lack of clear standards on reporting deaths among students make it difficult to say for certain. The Dorrills family ask people to wear masks and be quarantined if they test positive for coronavirus infection. He was a healthy 19 - year - old, said statement attributed to his mother that her sons ' former travel basketball team posted to Facebook. The statement has since been made private. As our family suffers this incredible loss, we want to remind people to wear a mask and quarantine if you test positive even without symptoms, statement say, according to several media reports. You have no idea who you could come in contact with that virus affects differently. Chad was just incredibly tired for two weeks and little do we know it was secretly attacking his body in a way they had never seen before. Doctors say that Chad is most 1 - 10 000 000 cases, but if it can happen to a super healthy 19 - year - old boy who doesnt smoke, vape or do drugs, it can happen to anyone. Dorrill lives off campus this semester at Appalachian State. His classes were online. He started feeling unwell earlier in the month, and his mother urged him to return home, quarantine and be test, according to an announcement from Everts, universitys Chancellor. He tested positive, followed procedures for isolation, and his doctor cleared him to return to Boone. After returning, he experiences additional complications. His family picked him up, and he was hospitalize. Dorrill died Monday night in Winston - Salem, according to the Watauga Democrat. It is not clear where, exactly, he contracted the virus. Hearts of the entire Appalachian Community are with Chad's family and loved ones during this profoundly difficult and painful time, Everts write. Tributes shared by friends and loved ones show the positive impact Chad had on communities he loved and called home, which include App State and Boone. Appalachian State is recording a rising number of students with COVID - 19. As of Tuesday, University Data dashboard showed 159 active cases among students, meaning they were in isolation. It added 36 cases between Monday and Tuesday.

Cases in jails and prisons

Novel coronavirus Disease 2019 represents a challenge to prisons because of close confinement, limited access to personal protective equipment, and the elevated burden of cardiac and respiratory conditions that exacerbate COVID - 19 risk among prisoners. 1 Although news reports document prison outbreaks of COVID - 19, systematic data is lacking. 2 Relying on officially reported data, we examine COVID - 19 case rates and deaths among Federal and State Prisoners. Counts of COVID - 19 cases and presumed or confirmed deaths among Prisoners were collected daily by UCLA Law COVID - 19 Behind Bars Data Project from March 31 2020, to June 6 2020. 3 Counts were extracted daily from departments of Corrections websites and, as needed, supplemented with news reports and press releases. Data includes all States, District of Columbia, and the Federal Bureau of Prisons. Cases were reported cumulatively. Deaths attributable to COVID - 19 were defined by each Department of Corrections based on determination of departments of Corrections or external Medical examiners. Covid - 19 case rates and deaths for States were obtained for the same period from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 4 separately, Prison population Data were obtained from current departments of Corrections reports in early May 2020, representing the best available Census of All State and Federal Prisons. US population data was obtained from the US Census Bureau American Community Survey. We calculate crude COVID - 19 case and DEATH rates separately for prisoners and the overall population. To account for demographic differences between prisons and the overall population, we also calculate mortality rates adjusted for age and sex with indirect standardization. This calculation relies on mortality rates specific to age and sex in the overall population. Because this study uses aggregated public data, it was determined not to constitute human subject research by the Johns Hopkins University institutional review board. Data was analyzed using RStudio version 1. 25042. By June 6 2020, there had been 42 107 cases of COVID - 19 and 510 deaths among 1 295 285 Prisoners with a case rate of 3251 per 100 000 Prisoners. The COVID - 19 case rate for prisoners was 5. 5 times higher than the US population case rate of 587 per 100 000. The Covid - 19 DEATH rate in the Prisons was 39 deaths per 100 000 Prisoners, which was higher than the US population rate of 29 deaths per 100 000. However, individuals aged 65 years or older comprise a smaller share of the prison population than the US population and account for 81% of COVID - 19 deaths in the US population. The table provides a standardized calculation showing that the adjusted DEATH rate in the prison population was 3. 0 Times higher than would be expected if age and sex distributions of US and Prison populations were equal. The figure displays daily trends in cumulative, confirmed cases of COVID - 19 in State and Federal Prisons and the US population from March 31 2020, to June 6 2020. The COVID - 19 case rate was initially lower in the Prisons but surpassed the US population on April 14 2020.
