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

New York City officials are beginning to plan for wide - scale distribution of COVID - 19 virus Vaccine next year, Mayor Bill de Blasio say. Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro blasted the Chinese coronavirus vaccine being tested in his country just a day after his Health Minister said it would BE distributed nationwide. Brazilian people WONT BE ANYONES GUINEA PIG, he wrote on his Facebook and Twitter pages, adding that billions cant BE spent on medication that is still being test. My decision is to not acquire the aforementioned vaccine. China says giving vaccines still in clinical trials to hundreds of thousands of people is justified given the risk of COVID - 19 returning through its borders and the lack of any significant side effects so far. In October 2 memo, Food and Drug Administration compliance officers write that findings from inspection of Lilly New Jersey Facility in July and August support major failure of quality assurance. They note that Lilly plans to make its antibody therapy at the plant and say the inspection group feels it is still imperative that FDA take action. Many people's hopes for speedy vaccine are still too high, Roche Holding AG Chief Executive Officer Severin Schwan warn. California will require a panel of health experts to review any coronavirus vaccine before allowing it to be distributed to States 40 million residents, Governor Gavin Newsom say. Immunitybio received authorization from FDA to begin Phase I Clinical trial of Vaccine candidate hAd5 - COVID - 19, which targets T cells and antibody immunity. Antibody cocktail US President Donald Trump credit for his swift coronavirus RECOVERY WONT become widely available because it is impossible to make enough for everyone WHO might need it, according to Roche Holding AG, Swiss pharmaceutical giant working on scaling up production. New Zealand: New Zealand has agreed to purchase enough vaccines from Pfizer Inc. And BioNTech SE for 750 000 people. Pact is subject to the vaccine successfully completing all Clinical Trials and passing Regulatory approvals in New Zealand, according to Research, Science and Innovation Minister Megan Woods and Health Minister Chris Hipkins in an emailed statement. The Trump administration's Operation Warp Speed program asked vaccine makers to hold off filing for emergency authorization of COVID - 19 shot until they can manufacture several million doses. Moncef Slaoui, Warp Speeds Chief adviser, suggested that authorizing vaccine without being able to make it might be a major disappointment to the public. South Korea: South Korea will secure early supply of novel coronavirus vaccines for 30 million people, or 60% of its population, Prime Minister Chung Sye - kyun told a cabinet meeting on Tuesday.


Lockdown updates

US Vice - President Mike Pence said Americans should expect cases to rise in coming weeks. Pence claimed the country has passed through a challenging time with its coronavirus crisis, but he added that, American people should anticipate that cases will rise in the days ahead. India's coronavirus case tally passed six million after it reported 82 170 new infections in the last 24 hours, as the pandemic rages across the vast South Asian nation. New Zealand: New Zealand report fourth consecutive day of no New Covid - 19 cases spread in community. There have two new diagnoses of the virus in government - run isolation facilities for travellers returning to New Zealand, health officials say. South Korea: South Korea added 38 coronavirus cases in 24 hours, down from 50 days earlier, according to data from the Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency. The number of newly confirmed cases was the lowest in seven weeks. The total death tally rose by one to 407.

Decentralized, inconsistent response

It doesnt take a sophisticated statistical model to see that the coronavirus pandemic is causing substantially more deaths than would have otherwise occur. Mortality in 2020 is clearly different from previous year patterns, with substantial increases and unusual trends. The number of deaths CDC officially attributes to COVID - 19 in the United States was 200 499 through Oct. 3. Some people who are skeptical about the impact of coronavirus suggest these deaths would have occurred anyway, perhaps because COVID - 19 is particularly deadly for the elderly. Others believe that, because pandemic has changed life so drastically, increase in COVID - 19 - related deaths is probably offset by decreases from other causes. But neither of these theories is true. In fact, number of excess deaths in the US currently exceeds the number attributable to COVID - 19 by at least 23 674 and likely up to 79 201. What is behind those additional deaths is not yet clear. It could be that COVID - 19 deaths are being undercounted, or pandemic could also be causing an increasing number of deaths due to other causes. What we are starting to learn is that it is probably some of both. A recent study in Journal of American Medical Association found that COVID - 19 was documented as cause of death in 67% of excess deaths between March and July in the US. But researchers also identified increased mortality rates due to heart disease, as well as two spikes in deaths related to Alzheimers Disease / dementia. Some people are delaying medical treatments for fear of getting infected with the coronavirus. Another JAMA study found that the 2020 excess death rate is higher in the US than in other countries hard - hit by COVID - 19. That difference is likely the result of multiple factors, including inconsistent public health guidance, decentralized and sometimes conflicting governmental response, and disruptions triggered by pandemic. Regardless of reasons, this pandemic has resulted in substantially more deaths than would have otherwise occurred - and it is not over yet. This is an updated version of an article originally published on Aug. 13 2020.

Underrecognition, disruption

In the second study, researchers at Virginia Commonwealth University and Yale analyzed population data and COVID - 19 and all - cause Death data for 48 US States and Washington, DC, from the National Center for Health Statistics and US Census Bureau. From Mar 1 to Aug 1, 1 336 561 people died in the United States, 225 530 more than 1 111 031 deaths that would have been expected based on historic data. Of 225 530 excess deaths, 150 541 were attributed to coronavirus. Excess deaths attributed to heart disease also increased significantly in the weeks ending Mar 21 and Apr 11, corresponding to case surges, while deaths from Alzheimer's Disease / dementia rose twice during that period and between weeks ending Jun 6 and Jul 25, latter corresponding to surges in Sun Belt States. High Death Counts in Sun Belt State show US grave consequences of how some States responded to the Pandemic and sound alarm not to repeat this mistake going forward, lead author Steven Woolf, MD, of Virginia Commonwealth University, said in a University press release. We can't prove causally that early reopening of those States leads to summer surges. But it seems quite likely, he say. States with the highest excess death rates, which range from 22% in Rhode Island to 65% in Michigan and New York, also include Arizona, Delaware, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi, and New Jersey. While 30% of excess deaths occur in Massachusetts, New Jersey, and New York, these States also had the shortest initial outbreaks, at less than 10 weeks. States that had surges in April and reopened later saw excess death rates return to normal in May, while those that reopened earlier experienced increased excess deaths throughout summer. The study was updated of analysis of excess deaths during March and April, published in JAMA on July 1, that found that 65% of excess deaths during that time were attributed to COVID - 19 and that deaths from non - coronavirus causes such as Alzheimer's Disease, diabetes, and heart Disease jumped in five States with most COVID - 19 deaths. Excess deaths attributed to causes other than COVID - 19 could reflect deaths from unrecognized or undocumented infection with or deaths among uninfected patients resulting from disruptions produced by the Pandemic, authors write. Woolf warns that long - term data may show that pandemics had broader effect on death rates, including cancer patients WHO experienced disruptions to their chemotherapy schedule and women whose mammograms were delay. And death is only one measure of health, he said in the VCU release. Many people WHO survive this Pandemic will live with lifelong chronic disease complications. Imagine someone WHO developed warning signs of stroke but was scar to call 9 - 11 for fear of getting virus. That person may end up with a stroke that leave them with permanent neurological deficits for the rest of their life.

'Mortifying and motivating'

Two new reports in JAMA provide Update estimates regarding Mortality associated with coronavirus Disease 2019 Pandemic in US. In research letter by Woolf and colleagues, authors update their analysis of the number of excess deaths in the US related to COVID - 19 and other causes from March 1 through August 1 2020. 1 2 authors report that during this 5 - month period, total of 1 336 561 deaths occurred in the US, estimated 20% increase compared with the number of expected deaths, and representing 225 530 excess deaths. 2 Approximately 67% of these excess deaths were attributable directly to COVID - 19, whereas excess deaths attributed to other causes also could have been related to the Pandemic in general. The second research letter, by Bilinski and Emanuel, 3 compares the US to Organisation for Economic Co - operation and Development countries with populations exceeding 5 million. Authors find that since the beginning of the Pandemic, among countries with moderate mortality or high mortality, US ranks third, with 71. 6 deaths / 100 000. The importance of an estimate by Woolf et alwhich suggests that for the total of 2020, more than 400 000 excess deaths will occurcannot be overstate, because it accounts for what could be declines in some causes of death, like motor vehicle crashes, but increases in others, like myocardial infarction. These deaths reflect the true measure of the human cost of the Great Pandemic of 2020. As depicted in illustration, these deaths far exceed the number of US deaths from some armed conflicts, such as the Korean War and Vietnam War, and deaths from the 2009 H1N1 Pandemic, and approach the number of deaths from World War II. In the report by Bilinski and Emanuel, 3 authors note that the US experience high COVID - 19 - associated Mortality and excess all - cause Mortality into September 2020. After initial peak in early spring, US death rates from COVID - 19 and from all causes remain higher than rates in countries with high COVID - 19 mortality. In addition, 3 Viewpoints and an Editorial in JAMA reflect on Mental Health, financial, and disparities issues relating to the Pandemic. Simon and colleagues 4 suggest that it is critical to consider that for every death, estimate 9 family members are affected, such as with prolonged grief or symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder. In other words, approximately 3. 5 million people could develop major mental health needs. This does not account for thousands of health care workers in hospitals and nursing homes who have been witness to unimaginable morbidity and mortality associated with COVID - 19. Cooper and Williams 5 comment on unrelenting and seemingly intractable and embedded disparities that exist in the US and within US health care system. They call for restorative justice. This issue is not new, but rather the COVID - 19 Pandemic has once again highlighted and further compounded health, social, and economic disparities inherent in communities of color.

New controversy over CDC guidance

As countries face the prospect of another surge in cases, new controversy erupted TODAY over the latest change in official COVID - 19 guidance from CDC. The controversy involves the agency's position on how Coronavirus is transmitted from person to person. On Friday, CDC posted updated guidance on its website that says Coronavirus can spread through both large droplets and small particles, such as those in aerosols, and that airborne particles that form when an infected person coughs, sneezes, sings, talks, or breathes can remain suspended in the air, be breathed in by others, and travel distances beyond 6 feet. Guidance indicates that this is the main way viruses spreads, and suggests indoor spaces without good ventilation may increase the risk of spread. Previous guidance had focused on virus spreading via respiratory droplets between people within 6 feet of contact. But earlier TODAY, new guidance was taken down from the CDC website, with an accompanying note that said draft version of proposed changes to these recommendations was posted in error on the agency's official website. Cdc is currently updating its recommendation regarding airborne transmission of SARS - CoV - 2. Once this process has been complete, update language will be post. Whatever the reason for the change, it comes amid growing concern that the agency's messaging on Coronavirus is being shaped by political considerations. Last week, CDC reversed Coronavirus testing guidance on its website that had been updated in August with new recommendations made by political appointees in the Trump administration. Those recommendations suggested that people who were exposed to infected person but weren't showing symptoms don't necessarily need to be test. Last week, CDC clarified that such close contacts DO need to be test, which reflects guidance on its site before August changes.

The places hit hardest

Washington - as Americas ' response to the coronavirus pandemic splits along partisan lines, Reuters analysis may help explain why: Death rates in Democratic areas are triple those in Republican ones. By Wednesday, US counties that voted for Democrat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election Report 39 coronavirus deaths per 100 000 residents, according to analysis of demographic and public health data. In counties that voted for Republican Donald Trump, 13 of every 100 000 people had died from the virus. Uneven impact reflects the disproportionate toll infectious diseases have taken in densely packed Democratic - voting cities like New York. Rural areas and far - flung suburbs that typically back Republicans have not seen a direct impact. The pattern holds beyond New York, epicenter of the US outbreak. Democratic counties in 36 of 50 US States collectively report higher death rates than Republican counties. In Maryland, where disease has killed more than 2 000 people, death rate in the Democratic suburbs of WASHINGTON is four times higher than in conservative counties in the Appalachian panhandle. In Kansas, which has Report 152 fatalities, death rate is seven times higher in two counties that back Clinton than in the rest of the state. There are exceptions. Republican counties report higher death rates in Delaware, Nebraska and South Dakota, where disease has race through meatpacking plants. Republican counties have been harder hit in Montana, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota and Texas, where rates are well below the national average. A Reuters / Ipsos survey of 1 115 US adults conducted on Monday and Tuesday found nearly half of Democrats were very concerned about the viruses compared with one - third of Republicans. Other polls here have found Republicans more eager to lift restrictions aimed at slowing coronavirus in the United States, which leads the world with more than 92 000 deaths and 1. 54 million infections.

Cases at colleges and universities

S cases of novel coronavirus surpassed six million on Sunday as many States in the Midwest reported increasing infections, according to Reuters tally. Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota have recently reported record one - day increases in new cases, while Montana and Idaho are seeing record numbers of currently hospitalized COVID - 19 patients. Nationally, metrics on new cases, deaths, hospitalizations and positivity rates of tests are all declining, but there are emerging hotspots in the Midwest. Many of the new cases in Iowa are in counties that are home to the University of Iowa and Iowa State University, which are holding some in - person classes. Colleges and universities around the country have seen outbreaks after students return to campus, forcing some to switch to online - only learning. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on Sunday said his state was sending a SWAT team to the State University of New York campus in Oneonta in upstate New York to contain COVID - 19 outbreak. Fall classes, which started last week at college, were suspended for two weeks after more than 100 people tested positive for the virus, about 3% of the total student and faculty population, SUNY Chancellor Jim Malatras say. We have had reports of several large parties of our students at Oneonta last week, and unfortunately, because of those larger gatherings, there were several students who were symptomatic of COVID, Malatras say. Across the Midwest, infections have also risen after the annual motorcycle rally in Sturgis, South Dakota drew more than 365 000 people from across the country from Aug. 7 to 16. The South Dakota Health department says 88 cases have been traced to the rally. More than eight months into pandemic, United States continues to struggle with testing. The number of people tested has fallen in recent weeks. Many health officials and at least 33 States have rejected new COVID - 19 testing guidance issued by the Trump Administration last week that says those exposed to the virus and without symptoms may not need testing. Public health officials believe the United States needs to test more frequently to find asymptomatic COVID - 19 carriers to slow the spread of disease. While the United States has most recorded infections in the world, it ranks tenth based on cases per capita, with Brazil, Peru and Chile having higher rates of infection, according to Reuters tally. The United States also has the most deaths in the world at nearly 183 000 and ranks 11 in deaths per capita, exceeded by Sweden, Brazil, Italy, Chile, Spain, United Kingdom, Belgium and Peru.

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 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.

Cases at food production facilities

- A Coronavirus outbreak take heavy toll on workers at US meat and poultry processing facilities, with more than 17 000 COVID - 19 cases and nearly 100 deaths in April and May, according to a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released on Tuesday. In many rural parts of the country, meatpacking plants have been the main source of local outbreaks as employees are forced to work long hours, indoors and in close proximity to each other. The CDC report was based on surveillance data from health departments in 23 States through May 31 for all meat and poultry facilities affected by the coronavirus. It compiled 16 233 confirmed cases among workers, with 86 related deaths. Among cases in states where demographic details were available, 87% occurred among racial and ethnic minority workers. Twelve percent of reported cases were asymptomatic or presymptomatic, CDC say. But not all facilities perform widespread coronavirus testing, so there may have been many more cases that go unreported, according to the study. Compared with earlier CDC assessment of meat processing plant workers through April 27, totals were 17 358 COVID - 19 cases and 91 deaths through the end of May. Most plants have implemented safety measures including screening workers for symptoms, supplying them with masks and hand sanitizer, and making sure tools are disinfect, report say. Target, workplace - specific prevention strategies are critical to reducing COVID - 19 health disparities among vulnerable populations, say CDC researchers say. Lessons learned from investigating outbreaks of COVID - 19 in meat and poultry processing facilities could inform investigations in other Food Production and Agriculture workplaces, study authors say.
