The results roughly match those of an analysis to be released next week by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which found that about 10 percent of blood samples from sites across the country contain antibodies to the virus. Dr. Robert R. Redfield, Director of CDC, was referring to that analysis when he told a congressional committee this week that 90 percent of all Americans were still vulnerable to the virus, CDC spokeswoman say. An accurate estimate of national immunity is important because President Trump, in collaboration with his new medical adviser, Dr. Scott Atlas, has tentatively promoted the idea of reaching herd immunity by canceling lockdowns, mask - wearing campaigns and social - distancing mandates. The plan would be to let viruses wash through the population while attempting to protect people deemed most vulnerable. Most public health experts say that such a policy would lead to hundreds of thousands more deaths, as it is impossible to protect all Americans who ARE elderly or have one of a dozen underlying conditions, including diabetes and heart disease, that render person more likely to become seriously ill or to die. The study of dialysis patients was done by scientists from Stanford University and published in Lancet. It found wide variances in antibody levels around the country. In New York metropolitan area, including New Jersey, antibody levels were higher than 25 percent of samples test. In the western United States, they were below 5 percent. Over all, researchers estimate the prevalence to be about 9. 3 percent. Dialysis patients ARE not necessarily representative of the whole population, and study is just one of many attempts to land on an accurate estimate of seroprevalence. The Cdc study, which has not YET been release, was described by a CDC spokeswoman. It involves testing blood samples collected at 52 commercial laboratories between early July and mid - August in all 50 States, District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Base on 46 sites with most data, CDC researchers conclude that the overall national prevalence rate was less than 10 percent. Prevalence rates range from lows of less than 1 percent in some States to about 22. 5 percent in New York State. An implication of antibody studies, Dr. Redfield says in a statement, is that the vast majority of Americans ARE still susceptible to viruses and therefore should continue to take steps such as wearing masks, staying six feet away from other people, washing hands frequently, staying home when sick and being smart about crowds. In South Dakota, cases have risen steadily throughout the month of September. In the past week, more new cases have been diagnosed than in any other seven - day stretch of pandemic and twice broken the record for coronavirus hospitalizations. Officials announced 457 new cases Friday. Gov. Kristi Noem, Republican, has never issued stay - at - Home order or statewide masking ordinance.

MIXED NEWS

Trump spent almost two months falsely claiming the virus was going away, and he continued to send mixed signals. At Wednesday's news briefing, he said that some states do have a of a problem. Many Republican Governors have chosen to echo him. Desantis, for instance, acts as if he could stop viruses merely by keeping New Yorkers out of his state. A newly published analysis by The Times finds that states where travel declined least last week were almost all Trump - Voting states. I saw people this weekend shaking hands with each other, Lenny Curry, mayor of Jacksonville, Florida's largest city, told reporters. The pattern isnt perfectly partisan. Few Republican Governors, like Mike DeWine in Ohio and Larry Hogan in Maryland, have responded aggressively. Few Democratic politicians, like New York mayor Bill de Blasio, have reacted too slowly. But the pattern is nonetheless a strong one: only 13 states that have still not issued stay - at - home Orders, including Texas, were all won by Trump four years ago. Anne - Marie Slaughter of think tank New America, in Times: If this crisis is highlighting our weaknesses as a nation, it is also bringing out some of our greatest strengths. In the absence of competent National leadership, others are stepping up. Governors and mayors, business owners, university presidents, philanthropists, pastors and nonprofit groups of all kinds have taken initiative to mobilize, guide and protect those they lead and serve. Governors are leading the charge. Ed Kilgore, New York magazine: General drift of public policy in Republican - governed states is in the responsible direction, which isnt that surprising given the proliferation of cases across most of the country, but GOP pols remain vulnerable to another backflip by Trump. His earlier mutterings aloud about wanting to simply declare the crisis over have led some of his fans to rebel against sound medical advice act of ideological loyalty. Mark Joseph Stern, Slate: DeSantiss languorous approach to outbreak allows coronavirus to spread silently for weeks in a state with a large population of elderly, vulnerable residents. While DeSantis drag his feet, another Florida official took the lead in responding to the crisis. Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Frieds response to the outbreak stands in stark contrast with DeSantis. A Democrat, fry is an independently elected member of the Florida Cabinet whose duties go well beyond Agriculture. On March 20, Fry called on DeSantis to shut down Florida by issuing a statewide stay - at - home order. The governor only granted her request on Wednesday. Bill Scher, Politico: New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has received the lion's share of attention, as his informative and emotive press conferences have made him an overnight National political star, albeit halfway through his third term. But his record in responding to crisis is more complicated than sheen lets on: his coronavirus containment policies were not the most aggressive in the country, and did not prevent catastrophe.


30 September

New data suggest the English R number could be as high as 1. 7 UK coronavirus epidemic is growing, according to the latest government figures. Simon Clarke at University of Reading describes this as a massive blow to governments strategy to contain the spread of Covid - 19. The UK R number - the estimated number of people each infected person goes on to infect - is between 1 and 1. 2, up from between 0. 9 and 1. 1 last week. This data is representative of the situation two to three weeks ago, due to time - lag in data used to model R, but is in line with more recent data for England from separate study by researchers at Imperial College London, which suggest English R number could be as high as 1. 7 study, commissioned by the Department of Health and Social Care, tested over 150 000 people in communities in England between 22 August and 7 September and used this to model R number. It found that 0. 13 per cent of people test positive - equivalent to 130 per 100 000 people in the population. Latest results from a random swab testing survey by the Office for National Statistics also indicate an increase in infections in communities in England and Wales in recent weeks. The rise in cases suggests that the recent uptick in cases is not just because of greater testing, said Clarke in a statement. It is likely that coronavirus are circulating more freely out in the community again, meaning we are likely to need greater restrictions on our lives to push the transmission rate back down again. A new coronavirus contact tracing app will go live across England and Wales on 24 September, government announced today. The new app will allow people to scan QR codes to register visits to bars and restaurants and will use Apple and Googles method for detecting other smartphones nearby. The UK government was previously forced to abandon development of earlier app,s built on different technology, due to its inability to recognize a significant proportion of Apple and Android devices. Scotland app, Protect Scotland, went live yesterday. Birmingham in England is being put under local lockdown due to a spike in cases. City now has the second highest rate of coronavirus infection in England, after Bolton. There were 85. 4 cases per 100 000 people in Birmingham during the week ending 7 September, up from 32 in the previous week. People in Birmingham will no longer be allowed to meet with other households. India has recorded the highest number of daily new coronavirus cases in a single country since the pandemic begin, with 96 551 cases recorded in the country on Thursday. The worldwide death toll has passed 910 000. The number of confirmed cases is more than 28. 2 million, according to Johns Hopkins University, though the true number of cases will be much higher.

FLORIDAS LIMITED REOPENING

Under the reopening plan in Florida, where COVID - 19 has killed over 1 200 people, DeSantis said retail merchants and restaurants could open on Monday, with indoor patronage limited to 25% of capacity. Eateries may also reopen outdoor seating with appropriate social distancing, and medical practices can resume elective surgeries and procedures. But movie theaters, bars and fitness clubs will remain shuttered for the time being, he say. The Governor left existing restrictions in place across Miami - Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties - three most highly populated in the state. Desantis had drawn criticism for waiting until April 2 to clamp down on commerce - after most other states had already done so - in part because of Florida's high proportion of elderly residents - More than fifth are aged 65 and over - who are especially vulnerable to virus. But Florida, key swing electoral swing state, has avoided the worst of health crisis seen in other states such as New York and New Jersey, and DeSantis said he would take a measured approach to further reopening. Part of our strategy in Phase one is to expand testing, DeSantis say. But Florida Democratic Party Chair Terrie Rizzo criticized the Governor's plan as lacking details on how he would quickly increase state virus screening, which Rizzo said ranked 22 in COVID - 19 tests per capita among all 50 US states. Other Florida Democrats question why the Governor makes no mention of state beleaguer unemployment system that collapsed as hundreds of thousands of residents sought benefits in the early days of the pandemic lockdown.

Statewide

It has been seven weeks since the Florida Governor, Ron DeSantis, took the coronavirus victory lap, pressing ahead with a swift reopening program while berating the media for doom and gloom approach he said bore little relation to reality. We have seen an explosion of new cases, DeSantis insisted during the 29 April news conference, day on which state COVID - 19 tally increased by 347. There is light at the end of the tunnel, DeSantis, keen Trump ally, add. This week, however, it has become clear that the Republican Governors ' garden of roses is wilting fast in the face of a resurgent virus. The period that began with Florida's daily record of new cases below 1 700 saw eight consecutive days above that figure, five of them topping 2 000 and both Thursday and Friday seeing the highest numbers of all: 3 207 and 3 822 cases, respectively, eclipsing the previous record high by more than 35%. Staggering figures have caused experts at Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia and University of Pennsylvania to conclude that Florida has all markings of the next large epicenter of coronavirus transmission. Such consequences could be significant in politically sensitive swing state that analysts agree Donald Trump must win in November to secure a second term as President. Governor DeSantis has lost control of Florida COVID - 19 response, says Nikki Fry, agricultural commissioner and only Democrat elected to statewide office, who has previously complained about being shut out of the DeSantiss recovery taskforce. His policies are simply not working and he recklessly reopening Florida despite data screaming for caution. Refusing to acknowledge alarming patterns in cases, hospitalizations and positivity is not only arrogant but will cost lives, public health and our economy, fry add. The rise in Florida figures, with close to 90 000 cases and deaths surpassing 3 000, comes as the majority of its 67 counties reach the end of the second week of DeSantiss safe, smart, step - by - step reopening plan. Beaches, bars and restaurants, movie theaters and entertainment venues are mostly open again, with tighter restrictions in the hardest - hit counties of Miami - Dade, Broward and Palm Beach. Universal Orlando resort welcome back guests on 5 June and Disney World will reopen its theme parks next month. Desantis, meanwhile, contends that Florida is on the right track, arguing that rising figures can be attributed to increased testing, particularly among younger residents, and concentrated pockets of outbreaks among agricultural workers, prison inmates and even a 52% positivity rate among airport workers - an unsubstantiated claim debunked by Orlando Sentinel. He refused to consider calls to slow or reverse the pace of Florida's reopening. They were not shutting down. Were going to go forward. Were not rolling back. You have to have social function, DeSantis said on Tuesday. His comments came the same day Vice - President Mike Pence wrote in a Wall Street Journal opinion piece that concern over the second wave of coronavirus was overblown by the press, and that the White House was winning the fight against an invisible enemy.
