1 case First Travel-related Case of 2019 Novel Coronavirus Detected in United States The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) today confirmed the first case of 2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) in the United States in the state of Washington. The patient recently returned from Wuhan, China, where an outbreak of pneumonia caused by this novel coronavirus has been ongoing since December 2019. While originally thought to be spreading from animal-to-person, there are growing indications that limited person-to-person spread is happening. It’s unclear how easily this virus is spreading between people. more... www.cdc.gov/media/releases/2020/p0121-novel-coronavirus-travel-case.html ------------ The timeline data source: www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/us/

Coronavirus virus case found in the U.S.
1,022,194 cases Deaths spiked as Covid-19 spread in March and April, new analysis finds Deaths across America spiked as Covid-19 began its spread, and many were never attributed to the new coronavirus, researchers reported Monday. "Notable increases" in deaths were seen in March and early April, the team led by the Yale School of Public Health found. This was especially true in New York and New Jersey, states hard-hit by the pandemic. The study was first reported by the Washington Post. Using data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the team found about 15,000 excess deaths from March 1 to April 4. During the same time, states reported 8,000 deaths from Covid-19. "That is close to double," Dan Weinberger, who studies the epidemiology of infectious diseases at Yale, told CNN. more... edition.cnn.com/2020/04/27/health/deaths-spike-covid-spread/index.html
Coronavirus outbreak: U.S. states ease restrictions even as COVID-19 cases climb

Coronavirus death toll tops 110,000 in US
3,019,158 cases Soaring U.S. coronavirus cases, hospitalizations overshadow July 4 celebrations Rising coronavirus cases in 39 U.S. states cast a shadow over the nation’s Fourth of July celebrations as health experts worried that holiday parties will cause a further spike in infections that could overwhelm hospitals. After towns and cities across the country canceled annual fireworks displays to avoid large crowds gathering, many Americans launched bottle rockets and roman candles from streets and suburban backyards to commemorate Independence Day. In the first four days of July alone, 15 states have reported record increases in new cases of COVID-19, which has infected nearly 3 million Americans and killed about 130,000, according to a Reuters tally. more... www.reuters.com/article/us-health-coronavirus-usa-idUSKBN2460JQ

Trump: 'no question in my mind' virus will go away
6,032,160 cases Demographers put COVID-19 death toll into perspective With over 170,000 COVID-19 deaths to date, and 1,000 more each day, America's life expectancy may appear to be plummeting. But in estimating the magnitude of the pandemic, University of California, Berkeley, demographers have found that COVID-19 is likely to shorten the average U.S. lifespan in 2020 by only about a year. Seeking to put current COVID-19 mortality rates into historic, demographic and economic perspective, UC Berkeley demographers Ronald Lee and Joshua Goldstein calculated the consequences of U.S. lives lost to COVID-19 in 2020 using two scenarios. One was based on a projection of 1 million deaths for the year, the other on the more likely projection of 250,000 deaths. Their findings, published online last week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, conclude that 1 million deaths in 2020 would cut three years off the average U.S. life expectancy, while 250,000 deaths would reduce lifespans by about a year. more... www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/08/200825160556.htm
Mira Irons, MD, reviews state trends and positivity rates | COVID-19 Update for Aug. 25, 2020
7,020,093 cases CDC now recommends all people exposed to COVID-19 get tested, reversing earlier controversial guidance The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reversed controversial guidance on coronavirus testing Friday, now recommending that people who have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 should get tested, even if they're not symptomatic. If you have been in close contact with an infected person and do not have symptoms, "you need a test," the CDC said in an update to its website Friday. "Due to the significance of asymptomatic and pre-symptomatic transmission, this guidance further reinforces the need to test asymptomatic persons, including close contacts of a person with documented SARS-CoV-2 infection," the CDC says. The recommendation departs from guidance the agency issued at the end of August, which said that someone who was in close contact (within 6 feet) of an infected person for at least 15 minutes but doesn’t have symptoms does not "necessarily need a test." more... www.usatoday.com/story/news/health/2020/09/18/covid-testing-cdc-reverses-guidelines-asymptomatic-spread/5827365002/
Coronavirus deaths in the United States near 200K as global cases top 30 million
8,009,871 cases US reports more than 50K COVID-19 cases for third straight day; 9 states set record For the first time since mid-August, the U.S. has recorded its third consecutive day of more than 50,000 new COVID-19 cases as forecasters predict a death total as high as 233,000 by the end of the month. At least 57,420 new infections were reported across the country on Friday, bringing the total U.S. infections to over 7.6 million as of Saturday, according to data collected by Johns Hopkins University. There were 56,191 new cases Thursday and 50,341 reported on Wednesday. Meanwhile, a forecast by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention hat combines data from nearly 40 independent models predicts U.S. deaths from COVID-19 could hit 233,000 by the end of the month.

COVID case spike seen across U.S., not just in Ohio
9,021,368 cases U.S. COVID-19 Cases Are Skyrocketing, But Deaths Are Flat—So Far. These 5 Charts Explain Why In just the last two weeks, the global daily tally for new COVID-19 cases has jumped more than 30%, according to TIME’s coronavirus tracker, which compiles data from Johns Hopkins University. The steep upward trend is driven by viral waves in Europe and the United States that started in August and mid-September, respectively. On Oct. 23, the daily case count in the U.S. reached a new record high, suggesting that this wave will be worse than the one that swept the country over the summer. But despite this rapid uptick in cases, the daily death count in the U.S. is not yet rising at the same rate, and remains at lower levels than in April. At face value, a lower case-to-fatality rate suggests that fewer people who test positive for the virus are dying from it. But the virus hasn’t necessarily become less lethal; it isn’t mutating quickly enough for that to be the case. What’s happening now is not a result of how the virus treats humans, but rather how humans are treating the virus—that is, how we test for it, how we avoid it and how we combat it. The following five charts explain how human-driven factors are, at least for the moment, keeping deaths from spiking as high as they did early in the pandemic, even as cases rise dramatically. more... time.com/5903590/coronavirus-covid-19-third-wave/

That’s nearly 20,000 cases higher than the previous single-day record set on Wednesday. Reporting backlogs and errors have temporarily warped data before, so it’s possible that’s a factor here, too. But the trend is clear: infections are growing rapidly around the country. more... www.cnbc.com/2020/11/06/coronavirus-live-updates.html

11,102,633 cases U.S. Shatters Global Record For Most Covid Cases And Hospitalizations (Again) United States' health officials reported more than 160,000 new coronavirus cases on Thursday, shattering the global record for the highest number of new Covid-19 infections recorded by any nation in a single 24-hour span, and with hospitalizations also at an all-time high, many states are being forced to take aggressive action. A total of 163,402 new cases of the novel coronavirus were reported in the U.S. on Thursday, a staggering number considering no other country on the planet has ever reported more than 98,000 cases in a single day. Cases are rising significantly in 46 of the 50 states, and 31 states have recorded more cases in the past week than inat any other week since the start of the pandemic.

U.S. surpasses 250,000 coronavirus-related deaths as case counts continue to rise
13,179,610 cases Coronavirus infections are higher than ever, but COVID-19 deaths are not. Why? For months, epidemiologists have predicted a spike in COVID-19 cases as winter approaches. Now it appears those dark forecasts were all too accurate. Coronavirus infections are rising across much of the United States, with the number of new daily cases nearing 200,000 for the past several days. That’s about five times the number of new daily cases the U.S. was reporting as recently as September, according to the World Health Organization. In California, the average number of new coronavirus cases has tripled in the last month alone. The virus is now infecting more Californians every day than at any previous point in the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a Times analysis. more... www.latimes.com/science/story/2020-11-25/coronavirus-infections-are-higher-than-ever-but-covid-19-deaths-are-not-why

14,153,202 cases Coronavirus updates: 50 Americans died every hour of November; Florida hits 1M cases; Pence says vaccine could be shipped in 2 weeks The United States reported more than 4.4 million new coronavirus cases in November, far more than double any other month of the pandemic, a USA TODAY analysis of Johns Hopkins University data shows. The numbers are startling. The total case count is nearly what the nation reported in August, September and October combined. An average rate of 99 cases were reported every minute through the month. In November alone, one of every 22 North Dakota residents tested positive. In South Dakota, it was one of 26; Wyoming, one of 29; Iowa, one of 31. The U.S. also reported 36,918 deaths in November, a toll higher than all months but April and May. The fatalities totaled more people than the U.S. lost in the entirety of the Korean War.

About half of the 31 million doses distributed to the states by the federal government have been administered so far, though only about 2 million people have received the two doses needed for maximum protection against COVID-19, according to the Centers for Disease and Control and Prevention.
