General | Latest Info

American adults of all ages, not just those in their 70s, 80s and 90s, are being seriously sickened by coronavirus, according to a report on nearly 2 500 of the first recorded cases in the United States. The report, issued Wednesday by the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention, found that as in other countries, oldest patients had the greatest likelihood of dying and of being hospitalize. But of 508 patients known to have been hospitalize, 38 percent were notably younger between 20 and 54. And nearly half of 121 patients who were admitted to intensive care units were adults under 65, CDC report. I think everyone should be paying attention to this, says Stephen S. Morse, professor of epidemiology at Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health. It is not just going to be elderly. There will be people aged 20 and up. They do have to be careful, even if they think that theyre young and healthy. The findings serve to underscore the appeal issued Wednesday at a White House briefing by Dr. Deborah Birx, physician and State Department official who is leader of the administration coronavirus task force. Citing similar reports of young adults in Italy and in France being hospitalized and needing intensive care, Dr. Birx implores the millennial generation to stop socializing in groups and to take care to protect themselves and others. You have the potential then to spread it to someone who does has condition that none of the US knew about, and cause them to have disastrous outcome, Dr. Birx say, addressing young people. In the CDC report, 20 percent of hospitalized patients and 12 percent of intensive care patients were between the ages of 20 and 44, basically spanning millennial generation. Younger people may feel more confident about their ability to withstand viruses like this, says Dr. Christopher Carlsten, head of respiratory medicine at University of British Columbia. But, he say, if that many younger people are being hospitalize, that means that there are a lot of young people in the community that are walking around with infection. The new data represent a preliminary look at the first significant wave of cases in the United States that does not include people who returned to the country from Wuhan, China, or from Japan, authors report. Between Feb. 12 and March 16, there were 4 226 such cases reported to CDC, study say. Ages were reported for 2 449 of those patients, CDC say, and of those, 6 percent were 85 and older, and 25 percent were between 65 and 84. Twenty - nine percent were aged 20 to 44. Age groups of 55 to 64 and 45 to 54 each include 18 percent of the total. Only 5 percent of cases were diagnosed in people 19 and younger. The report includes no information about whether patients of any age had underlying risk factors, such as chronic illness or compromised immune system.

Fifty - two people were hospitalized for COVID - 19 Sunday, one of the highest single - day totals since the pandemic begin. According to latest figures from the Minnesota Department of Health report Monday, total hospitalizations number 605. Forty - one more people were admitted to ICU for nearly 250 overall. Theyre running tight on their established capacity, Health Commissioner Jan Malcolm say. We do think that due to continued measure, but steady increase in COVID patients as well as other serious conditions, and surgeries restarting. Relate: Dr. David Hilden describes the dwindling number of available ICU beds. 1 045 of States ' 1257 ICU beds are in use, per critical Care supplies dashboard, but not all of those are COVID - 19 cases. 1 120 can be ready within 72 hours. The Statewide Healthcare Coordination Center through the State Emergency Operations Center is assisting. They knew that they were at that point and anticipated that this sort of daily load balancing was going to be an important function, Malcolm say. They now have daily calls to monitor and help troubleshoot and assist in the movement of patients where necessary. Total deaths number 881 after 12 more people lost their lives and confirmed cases reached 21 315 as of Monday.

COVID-19 cases and deaths

South Korea's grip on coronavirus faltered this month when a large Church in Seoul had an outbreak involving 915 cases as of 25 August. The government has reinstated restrictions in cities to prevent a surge, but it also reporting details of outbreak publicly. For instance, it has been shared that 120 people infected at Church have spread coronavirus to people at 22 venues, including 4 call centres and 3 hospitals in Seoul. Almost every day for the past seven months, Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has updated its website with near - real - time information on local outbreaks. The site also reports several COVID - 19 statistics for every region of the country. South Korea is reporting intimate details of COVID - 19 cases: has it help? Data dashboards in Singapore and New Zealand offer similar windows into how coronavirus is spreading within their borders. This helps policymakers and citizens determine how to go about daily life, while reducing risks and providing researchers with a wealth of data. By contrast, United States offers vanishingly few details on how disease is spreading, even as people increasingly socialize and travel, and authorities reopen schools and businesses. This state of affairs is frustrating data researchers, who want to help authorities make decisions that can save lives. We shouldnt be flying blind at this point, says Natalie Dean, biostatistician at University of Florida in Gainesville. We should have to speculate. Experts tell Nature that political meddling, privacy concerns and years of neglect of public - health surveillance systems are among reasons for the dearth of information in the United States.

Public Health Laboratories

The 2016 FDA Doxycycline Emergency Dispensing Order and CDC Doxycycline Emergency Use Instructions together replace the need for Doxycycline mass Dispensing EUA. Therefore, Doxycycline Emergency Dispensing Order and EUI should be used by stakeholders for anthrax Preparedness and response instead of mass Dispensing EUA. July 21 2011, Doxycycline mass Dispensing EUA, and October 14 2011, National Postal Model anthrax EUA will be terminated by FDA, and notice of such termination will be published in the Federal Register. For additional information, see Emergency Use Authorization - archive Information. On July 9 2018, FDA approved 2 mg Atropine Auto - Injector Manufacture by Rafa Laboratories, Ltd., For Treatment of poisoning by susceptible organophosphorous nerve agents having cholinesterase activity as well as organophosphorous or carbamate insecticides in adults and pediatric patients weighing over 90 lbs. For more information about the approved 2 mg Rafa Atropine Auto - Injector, see product label. Eua details in the table below are still in effect.

The Black asterisk indicates collection date of the latest sample test by CDC with positive result for SARS - CoV - 2 by rRT - PCR. Orange diamonds indicate the date of last report of symptoms. Black square indicates last day of isolation Precautions. Patient 9 was isolated in a healthcare facility for a full time period; they were discharged from the first healthcare facility on day 27 and subsequently transferred to the second healthcare facility for public health purposes. Patient 1 reported cough with initial onset in mid - December before the patient travels to China. Patients report no change in cough from initial onset until report resolution on day 14. Because the onset date was difficult to determine for this patient, we have used the date of detection as day 1 to assess viral RNA detection. Clinical and laboratory values collected during hospitalization are shown for seven hospitalized patients by illness day. Values include oxygen saturation, supplemental oxygen requirement, maximum body temperature, AST, ALT and White Blood cell count. Pink shading indicates days of remdesivir administration for three patients. Dot lines show a fever threshold of 100. 4 F, 40 U L 1 for AST and ALT, 4 000 cells per L for WBC and 150 and 250 10 3 mm 3 for platelets. Specimen types of test include NP swab, OP swab, sputum, serum, stool and urine. Days are sequential from day of symptom onset.

ILINet

Influenza activity is decreasing in the United States, but hospitalization rates rise slightly, according to an April 3 report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The number of Influenza cases confirmed in clinical laboratories fell sharply and is low at this time, CDC say. Influenza - like illness activity is lower than in previous weeks reported by the agency but remains elevated. High hospitalization rates are still being seen among children and young adults. Recent changes in healthcare seeking behavior, including increasing use of telemedicine and recommendations to limit emergency department visits to severe Illness, as well as increasing levels of social distancing, are affecting the number of people with ILI and their reasons for seeking care in Outpatient and ED settings, CDC explain. The percentage of respiratory specimens testing positive for Influenza in clinical laboratories fell from 7. 3% previous week to 2. 1% for the week ending March 28. Nationally, most frequently reported Influenza viruses this season are Influenza apdm09 viruses. Outpatient healthcare visits for ILI fell to 5. 4% from 6. 3% last week. In all regions of the United States, levels are above baselines The number of jurisdictions with high influenza activity fell from 37 last week to 31 this week. The number of jurisdictions with widespread influenza activity fell from 49 to 41 this week. The overall cumulative hospitalization rate this season rose from 67. 3 to 67. 9 per 100 000 population. Hospitalization rates were highest among those aged 65 years or older, followed by children aged 0 to 4 years, adults aged 50 to 64 years, adults aged 18 to 49 years, and children aged 5 to 17 years. Hospitalization rates are highest on record for any season for those aged 0 to 4 years and 18 to 49 years with the exception of the 2009 H1N1 pandemic. The percentage of deaths related to pneumonia and Influenza rose from 7. 3% to 8. 2% above the epidemic threshold of 7. 2%. Increase is due to an increase in pneumonia deaths rather than Influenza deaths and may be associated with COVID - 19, CDC explains in report. Seven pediatric deaths were reported this week, bringing this season's total to 162. With the exception of the 2009 pandemic, pediatric deaths are the highest since reporting began in 2004 - 2005. According to the CDC, at least 39 million Influenza illnesses, 400 000 hospitalizations, and 24 000 deaths have occurred that were related to influenza. The COVID - 19 pandemic is affecting healthcare seeking behavior. The number of people and their reasons for seeking care in Outpatient and ED settings are changing. These changes impact data from ILINet in ways that are difficult to differentiate from changes in illness levels,. Therefore, ILINet data should be interpreted with caution, CDC explain. Antiviral medications are important for treatment of Influenza, and more than 99% of Influenza viruses tested during this season have been susceptible to four Influenza antiviral medications approved by the US Food and Drug Administration this season.

ILI Activity Levels

All data is preliminary and may change as more reports are receive. The description of surveillance systems summarized in COVIDView, including methodology and detailed descriptions of each data component, is available on the Surveillance Methods page. The number of specimens tested for SARS - CoV - 2 using molecular assay and reported to CDC by public health laboratories and a subset of clinical and commercial laboratories in the United States are summarized below. All laboratories are performing primary diagnostic functions; therefore, percentage of specimens testing positive across laboratory types can be used to monitor overall trends in COVID - 19 activity. As the outbreak progresses, it is possible that different types of laboratories will take on different roles, and data interpretation may need to change. * Commercial and clinical laboratory data represent select laboratories and do not capture all tests performed in the United States. Data collected in ILINet is used to produce a measure of ILI activity for all 50 States, Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands, District of Columbia, and New York City. Mean report percentage of visits due to ILI for the current week is compared with mean report during non - Influenza weeks, and activity levels correspond to the number of standard deviations below, at, or above mean. Number of jurisdictions at each activity level during week 36 and changes compared with previous week are summarized in the table below and shown in the following maps. * Data collected in ILINet may disproportionally represent certain populations within a state and may not accurately depict the full picture of Influenza activity for the whole state. Differences in data presented here by CDC and independently by some state health departments likely represent differing levels of data completeness, with data presented by states likely being more complete. Covid - 19 - associate Hospitalization Surveillance Network conducts population - base Surveillance For laboratory - confirm COVID - 19 - associate hospitalizations in select counties participating in the Emerging Infections Program and Influenza Hospitalization Surveillance Project. A total of 54 425 laboratory - confirm COVID - 19 - associate hospitalizations were reported by sites between March 1 2020 and September 5 2020. The overall cumulative hospitalization rate was 166. 9 per 100 000 population. Among 0 - 4 year, 5 - 17 year, 18 - 49 year, 50 - 64 year, and 65 year age groups, highest rate of hospitalization was among adults aged 65 years, followed by adults age 50 - 64 years and adults aged 18 - 49 years. Weekly Hospitalization rates among all ages first peak during the week ending April 18, followed by a second peak during the week ending July 18. From the week ending August 1 to the week ending August 29, weekly hospitalization rates declined for all adult age groups. However, over this same time period, weekly rates initially remained constant in the 5 - 17 year age group and increased during the week ending August 29. Data for most recent weeks may change as additional admissions occurring during those weeks are report. Among 54 425 laboratory - confirm COVID - 19 - associate hospitalizations, 51 286 had information on race and ethnicity; collection of race and ethnicity was still pending for 3 139 hospitalizations.
