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.

Find an updated count of COVID - 19 cases in California and by county on our tracker here. New California unemployment claims fall to lowest in pandemic LA County officials announce elementary schools can apply to reopen without union Support 10: 45 am: Many parents are not ready to send kids back to school, polls show distance - learning is a struggle for many California families. But a pair of new polls suggest most parents dont want to send their kids back to school yet. A survey by Education Trust West shows only 35% of California parents say their children's distance learning has been successful this fall. That is way down from 57% at the beginning of the pandemic.

Coronavirus outbreaks have affected and killed workers in various workplaces like strawberry fields, meatpacking plants, fast - food chains, and garment factories. The 5% inspection rate is a steep decline from previous years, where Cal / OSHA conducted inspections on 25% of complaints. Since the pandemic start, Cal / OSHA has instead been sending employers letters asking them to respond to any worker concerns, As mandated by the March Executive order from Gov. Gavin Newsom. Due to lack of on - site inspections, Cal / OSHA ca cite employers for any safety or health violations, possibly causing underreporting in cases. 10: 50 am: Some Nevada Health districts say they 've been shut out of governors decisions on pandemic Health Officials in Nevada's two largest counties say that the governor have shut them out of the pandemic decision - making process, according to the Associated Press.

Even recipients of vaccines are becoming skeptical. One of the most substantial obstacles is that rich countries have locked up most of the world's potential vaccine supply through all of 2021. Countries like the US and others have refused to join the project, called Covax. Harvard University Global Health Expert Alicia Yamin says she fears that the window is closing for Covax to be pulled off. She also said that developing countries probably will not get vaccinated until 2022 or 2023.

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.

Important updates regarding our data

Today marks the launch of Older Adults Health Data Collection - a new resource cataloging over 200 Federal datasets previously available on data. Gov relates to the health of older Americans. This centralized location will assist experts from academia, industry, government, civil society, and the public in accessing datasets from various Federal agencies and across a range of Health - Related issues to advance our collective knowledge and understanding of the health of older adults. Analyzing data on the older adult population in time periods before, during, and after the pandemic is an important step to gaining better understanding of both the health of this age group as well immediate and long - term impacts of the pandemic. Older Adults Health Data Collection contains datasets that capture outcomes directly related to COVID - 19 as well as others that do not, and the number of COVID - 19 Related datasets in collection is anticipated to grow over time. Datasets without COVID - 19 - specific data elements still provide important context on health of older adults before pandemic and are likely to incorporate COVID - 19 Data elements in their Data Collection procedures in months and years to come. Demographic trends underscore just how vital it will be to understand this growing population group. By 2030, one in five Americans will be 65 years and older. Over the next 40 years, number of Americans 65 years and older will almost double. 1 COVID - 19 has also significantly impacted this age group, as underscored by evidence that older adults have experienced the highest hospitalization and morbidity rates from pandemic. 2 This is partly the result of older adults having high rates of chronic diseases, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, arthritis, and cancer, which are Nations leading drivers of illness, disability, deaths, and health care costs. This new resource aligns with the intent of the Foundations for Evidence - base Policymaking Act of 2018 and directives in the Federal Data Strategy 2020 Action Plan, both of which encourage increased public access to Government Data, collaboration with non - Government entities, Interagency collaboration, and protection of Data security and confidentiality. This Data Collection also supports efforts of the Federal Interagency Forum on Aging Related Statistics, which aims to improve the quality and utility of data on the Aging Population. Two of Aging Forums goals include encouraging cross - National Research on Aging Population and promoting communication among data producers, researchers, and public policymakers. Additional non - Health and non - Federal datasets relating to Older Adults are available at agingstats. Gov. As the first National open Data site, Data. Gov is an ideal platform to provide a wide variety of stakeholders with access to Older Adults Health Data Collection. Data in this Collection has been made available in open formats while ensuring privacy and security, consistent with all applicable laws, regulations, and policies governing data use, disclosure, and sharing.

Note:

While there are many features of the novel Coronavirus that are still unclear, we know with certainty: risk of dying from COVID - 19 rises sharply with advanced age. About 3 in 100 000 Americans under age 45 have died from the virus, according to data submitted to CDC through Oct. 3. The COVID - 19 death rate for Americans aged 45 - 54 rises to 26 per 100 000; more than double for those aged 55 - 64; and more than double again among those aged 65 - 74. Among Americans age 75 and older, death toll is exceedingly high: 521 people per 100 000, as shown below. Due to this steep age gradient to COVID - 19 mortality, it is important to consider the varying age distributions of America racial and ethnic groups. A higher share of White Americans are in older age brackets than any other group. To illustrate this, consider that the median age of non - Hispanic White Americans is 44 years, according to the latest Census Bureau Data. Comparable figures for all populations of color are considerably lowerfor Asians, blacks, Pacific Islanders, Indigenous and especially Latinos, half of whom have not yet reached their 30 birthday.S Even within same race groups, age distribution varieswith retirement destination. States such as Florida have a much higher share of older adults within their White population, for example. So, to remove the role of age differences from COVID - 19 mortality rates, we have also produced age - adjusted rates. Because mortality data is not available for all States by race and age jointly, we have use indirect standardization to calculate these rates. See our NOTES Section for details and cautions about our method. Adjusting racial data weve collected for age differences increased COVID - 19 mortality rate for all racial and ethnic groups except for Whites, who experienced a decrease, as shown below. Latino rates rise most following age - adjustment, revealing that viruses are impacting Latinos far more than would be expected based on their age profile. While Black Americans continue to experience the highest COVID - 19 mortality rate after age - adjusting, doing so also widens the gap between Black and White mortalityfrom 2. 0 to 3. 2 times as high. Relative to whites, mortality rates for Indigenous people also rise to 3. 2 times as high and Latinos to 3. 1 times as high. Rates for Pacific Islanders also grow, to 2. 4 times as high as whites. Finally, Asian mortality ratewhich, was slightly below White raterises above White death rate, when age is taken into account. Put another way, Black, Indigenous and Latino Americans all have COVID - 19 death rates of triple or more rate of White Americans. What does this mean? It indicates that many younger Americans who are Black, Latino, Indigenous or Pacific Islanders are dying of COVID - 19driving, their mortality rates far above White Americans. Despite their relative youthfulness, their death rates are elevate. As the Brookings Institution has report, in every age category, black people are dying from COVID at roughly the same rate as white people more than a decade older.

While much is still unknown about kids and coronavirus, at this stage we do know that cases of COVID - 19 in children are rising. And this may lead to more cases of multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children, or MIS - C, mysterious and at times deadly illness in a small portion of kids infected with coronavirus. First reported in April and May, rare conditions can cause inflammation of body parts, including organs, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In some kids, it can lead to organ failure and other life - threatening symptoms. Common signs of MIS - C include fever, abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, neck pain, rash, bloodshot eyes or feeling extra tire. Mis - C is still incredibly rare, experts stress. But with some schools reopening in person, likely increasing kids ' exposure to coronavirus, unanswered questions about MIS - C are more urgent than ever. Here's what we know about MIS - C now and how parents can protect their kids. In the last two weeks of July, nation saw about 40% increase in COVID - 19 cases in kids, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics and Childrens Hospital Association. But it's unclear at this point whether this has led to a corresponding rise in MIS - C and there are a few reasons why, Dr. Ermias Belay, epidemiologist and CDC's MIS - C expert, told TODAY. First, syndrome usually emerges two to four weeks after a child is infected with the coronavirus, so recent surges in South and Southwest May just now be leading to new MIS - C cases. Second, process of reporting new MIS - C data is lengthy and can delay access to this information. As of July 29, 570 cases of MIS - C had been reported to CDC. Belay said the majority were in the Northeast, especially New York and New Jersey, which hit their peaks early in the pandemic. With the surge of cases in the South and Southwest, we anticipate cases to pick up, he say. We haven't seen what we saw in the Northeast in other regions yet, but. We anticipate that will change going forward. Belay added that he's heard anecdotally that hospitals and physicians in the South have seen an increased number of cases, but those cases have not been reported yet. Latest MIS - C data from individual states may support Belay's suspicion. Florida, which, in mid - July, broke the US record for most new coronavirus cases in one day, had reported 31 MIS - C cases as of Aug. 10, according to the state's Department of Health. In late May, there were only a few cases of MIS - C report in the state. In Louisiana, which was hit especially hard in March, there have been 44 cases reported as of Aug. 10 and four deaths. Louisiana is seeing an increasing number of cases of MIS - C among young people, Department of Health noted in a recent press release. South Carolina, which experienced a surge of coronavirus cases in early July, had its first case of MIS - C on July 12, and at least six more have been reported since.

The places hit hardest

High case numbers in recent days have stoked concerns because the country has not even hit stretch of holidays and cold weather, which experts have long warned will send cases soaring even higher. More interactions could mean more transmission during celebrations of Halloween, Christmas and New Year. Winter cold, dry air will also help viruses stay stable longer, even as it drives people to hunker down together indoors. In recent months, health - care workers have been able to lower the mortality rates ratio of patients who die once infect. Much of that progress has come through hard - earn expertise by ICU staff, new approaches and knowledge about how to combat viruses such as when to use ventilators, adoption of treatments such as steroids and proning patients, which help with breathing by shifting them onto their abdomens.

Rapid increases in COVID - 19 cases occur within 2 weeks of opening the university to students. Base on preliminary case investigations, student gatherings and congregate living settings, both on and off campus, likely contributed to the rapid spread of COVID - 19 on campus. This suggests the need for robust and enhanced implementation of mitigation efforts and the need for additional mitigation measures specific to this setting. Findings in this report are subject to at least five limitations. First, number of reported cases at university is likely to be underestimate. For example, some cases were reported to students ' home jurisdictions, some students did not identify themselves as students to the County Health Department, some students did not report to the student health clinic, and not all students were test. Second, number of students possibly infected through affiliation with fraternity or sorority is likely underestimated. Some students might not have disclosed their fraternity or sorority membership, and other students might have participated in unofficial rush events and parties. Third, limited information was available on housing arrangements for students not identified as living on campus, as well as information about the extent of social gatherings and adherence to masking and other important mitigation efforts. Fourth, cases had limited clinical follow - up; thus, extent of longer - term clinical complications is not know. Finally, because information available on cases of faculty and staff members was limited, contribution of faculty or staff members to COVID - 19 spread on campus cannot be estimate. The rapid increase in COVID - 19 cases among college - aged persons at university underscores the urgent need to implement comprehensive mitigation strategies. In addition to enforcement of mask requirements, measures needed to reduce transmission in college and university settings might include efforts to reduce the density of on - campus housing, increase testing for SARS - CoV - 2, and discourage student gatherings. Emerging findings from ongoing monitoring and evaluation efforts at universities and colleges in North Carolina and nationwide are helping to update best practices, including optimal testing strategies, for preventing SARS - CoV - 2 transmission on campus and in adjacent communities.

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.
