Seattle PI: Report: Washington COVID-19 cases could be declining, but hospitalizations, deaths rising


New cases of the novel coronavirus have been rising in counties across Washington, but a situation report from the state's department of health suggests some of the counties hit hardest have had plateaus and even decreases in daily cases.

But the report hedged the optimism, and said community transmission was still growing in early July. It also said delays in testing could account for some of the trends showing decreases. It used data through July 13.

"Test positivity remains high in eastern WA and has recently been rising in western WA, reflecting the continued growth of the epidemic independent of changes in testing volume. As a result, we recommend caution when interpreting downwards or flattening trends in recent cases in some counties [sic]," the report said.

Daily deaths across Western Washington also increased for the first time since March, the Washington State Department of Health said in the report. In Eastern Washington, the trend of increasing deaths continued.

CNBC: Fauci says there are early signs coronavirus outbreaks are brewing in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee


White House health advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci said Tuesday there are early signs that a coronavirus outbreak could be brewing in Indiana, Ohio, Tennessee and Kentucky.

The so-called positivity rate, or the percentage of tests run that are positive, appears to be rising in those states — an early indication that the outbreak is worsening, Fauci said. While President Donald Trump and others have blamed the rise in cases in the U.S. on increased testing, a growing positivity rate can’t be blamed on increased testing.

“That’s a surefire sign that you’ve got to be really careful,” Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said during an interview with ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

Coronavirus outbreaks that have ripped through the South have recently shown signs of slowing after states delayed or rolled back reopening plans, according to a CNBC analysis of data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. Meanwhile, Covid-19 cases were growing by more than 10% in Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee as of Monday compared with a week ago, based on a seven-day average.

Not sure which thread to use for this, but IMPOTUS just bragged again and said that the United States has done much more testing than any other country. I just looked it up and as of yesterday, we had tested 55,805,416 people. Yes, that’s a lot, but China has tested 90,410,000. I may not be a stable math genius, but I’m pretty sure that 90,000,000 is a biglier number than
56,000,000, rounding it up to give him the benefit of the doubt.

Why on earth aren’t any of the journalists questioning him on this oft repeated lie and why is the media ignoring the facts? :smokeears: :brickwallsmall:

more important: the Chinese did take the proper conclusions from testing and put anybody showing a sign of infection into quarantine, no questions asked, then went to quarantine any diret contacts too. No self-isolation on personal recoginzance that cannot be controlled.

A better number would be tests/million population. On that, the USA is #21, behind U.A.E (#4), U.K. (#14) and Russia (#15).

The virus death toll in the U.S. reaches 150,000.

More than 150,000 people have died in the United States from the coronavirus, according to a New York Times database, as the rate of deaths continues to rise on the heels of ballooning infections and hospitalizations in many areas.

An average of about 1,000 virus-related deaths a day have been reported over the past week, the worst rate since early June, when the number of people dying seemed to be falling. Now, daily death counts are rising in 24 states and Puerto Rico.

The nation’s overall death toll reached the grim figure on Wednesday, five months after the first reported virus death in the United States in February. The nation passed the 50,000 mark on April 27 and 100,000 on May 27, a milestone whose approach The Times commemorated by filling its front page with names of the dead.

Tampa Bay Times: Florida adds more than 200 coronavirus deaths, a new record

The state also announced 9,446 cases and close to 600 hospitalizations Wednesday.


Just a day after setting a record-high number of coronavirus deaths, the state surpassed it and added 217 more on Wednesday.

Since March, 6,457 people across the state have died from COVID-19, according to the Florida Department of Health. The weekly death average has continued to rise, reaching 143 people dead a day. Wednesday was the first time the state has announced more than 200 deaths in a 24-hour period.

Florida also logged 9,446 new infections, bringing the total to 451,423 cases since the pandemic began. The positivity rate, or the percentage of positive tests among the tests processed, is about 12 percent for the day.

Hospitalizations increased by 587 admissions, the second highest increase ever reported. The seven-day average of hospitalizations rose to the highest point yet, with 468 admissions a day.

Reopening was fun while it lasted. (Not that I changed anything in my life, except a day trip to Honolulu.)
Hawaii recorded 109 new daily cases of COVID-19 today — the highest ever daily count since the pandemic reached in the islands in February.
:snippity:
“The 109 cases is a serious sign that COVID-19 is about to get away from us so we need to take action immediately,” Lt. Gov. Josh Green told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, adding that he is recommending Gov. David Ige immediately reduce the maximum size of gatherings to 10 and redouble efforts to require mask wearing for anyone outside their immediate family. “That’s the first rational decision that’s got to be made. We need people to not be in any gathering of more than 10 period — no exceptions.”

At this point, schools will “certainly have to delay their opening out of respect to parents and teachers,” Green added, until the Health Department has a “comprehensive health plan to keep them safe,” he added. “Until we see comprehensive DOH plan, it’s difficult to justify opening the schools.”

The recent spike in coronavirus cases has prompted officials to consider reinstating the 14-day interisland travel quarantine, which was lifted June 16.

Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell is also calling for the closure of Oahu bars for three weeks; a mask-wearing mandate for both indoors and outdoors; and the limiting of social gatherings to 10 people or less.

My spouse just moved to a different facility. There's approximately 200 people in the building. There are 4 known confirmed cases. He'd only been there a week, and he found out over the weekend that at least 6, possibly as many as 10 or more, employees are suspected of having COVID-19. The USPS is NOT testing people. Even though there has been a mandatory stand up talk directing employees to wear masks, this order is not being enforced. Social distancing is not being enforced. It's a disaster in the making.

Talking Points Memo - Josh Marshall: Why Are New York’s Numbers Remaining Low? (So Far)


One of the most pressing questions about the COVID epidemic is why some places are doing so much better than others. This applies both globally and within the United States. One example that gets raised a lot is why is New York State doing so relatively well while states in the South and Southwest are being hit so hard?

We need to start the conversation saying a) We don’t completely know and B) There are clearly multiple factors. But let me share some thoughts with you on one part of this debate.

While I still cringe that I see people in New York City not wearing masks, the truth is mask wearing is near universal in New York City. My sense is that aggressive mitigation efforts, both pressed by state authorities and embraced by the population, is the main reason why New York has at least to date avoided a second wave of infection. The last time New York’s case positivity rate went over 2% was June 2nd.

Mississippi's looking rough. And from what I've seen, your testing capacity is much, much lower than it should be. I feel bad for all of the decent people that live in southern states that are treating this pandemic like a political football match.

I just noticed that (according to the worldometer website), the state-wide per-capita infection rate of both Arizona and Louisiana now exceeds that of New York. Florida, Mississippi, and Alabama should pass NY soon.
