The Texas governor urged people to stay home when states reported a surge in the new Covid-19 case



Dr. Fauci: We will be testing more, not less

On Tuesday 34,720 new cases occurred in the US – the third highest number of new cases reported in one day since the beginning of the pandemic, according to archives of numbers kept by Johns Hopkins University. Two days with more cases occurred in April.

California obliterated the previous day’s high with more than 7,149 cases reported Wednesday, according to data from the state’s Department of Public Health.

The previous record, set the day before, was just over 5,000.

Rates of hospitalization and ICU due to viruses are also always high in this country.

Further state action in Texas can be announced if the virus continues to spread at this rate, even when officials encourage wearing masks and maintain social distance in places such as bars that are often crowded, Abbott said.

Caution renewed by Abbott, a Republican, was welcomed but not far enough, said Sarah Eckhardt, special assistant to Judge Sam Biscoe of Travis County, home to Austin, told CNN. Texas begins to reopen after orders stay in the state ends May 1.

“I’m glad he did a reverse court,” Eckhardt said on Wednesday. “I’m not sure we can reduce this trajectory.”

Cases rose in at least 26 countries

Texas is one of seven states that record hospitalizations.

At least 26 countries saw an increase in cases compared to the previous week, data from Johns Hopkins University showed. These countries are Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

In too many places throughout the country, a pandemic quickly “spiraled out of control,” said one expert.

More than 2,348,000 people have been infected throughout the US with the virus since the beginning of the pandemic and at least 121,279 has died, according to Johns Hopkins. Country account for a quarter of total world infections and total global deaths.

“We stopped treatment too early,” said CNN chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta. The result can be “exponential growth” cases.

“We can control and control the virus because of the protection orders in this place. Americans sacrifice very much for that, people lose their jobs, children get out of school and that is to give us time,” Dr. Leana Wen, who previously served as the City of Baltimore Health Commissioner.

But many places remain unprepared and reopened too quickly and too quickly – leading to the latest surge, experts say.

This contrasts sharply with other parts of the world, including countries in Europe, which have reduced the number of cases with longer locking assistance and have now begun to reopen slowly.

‘The safest place for you is in your house’

Abbott’s remarks came days after the Texas Alcohol Drink Commission temporarily suspended alcohol licenses of at least 12 sticks in the state found to be in violation of protocols related to the corona virus.

Officials in Harris County must “intervene now” and return to “aggressive” locking due to a sharp increase in the new Covid-19 case and hospitalization, said Dr. Peter Hotez, dean of the Faculty of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston.

“We are now projecting that our intensive care unit will be filled over the next two weeks. And that reason is important because we know that when the ICU starts to fill, mortality rates increase,” Hotez told CNN on Wednesday.

“It’s getting harder and harder to manage all those patients, even if you have – even if you have a full staff,” he said. “So, this is when you see the mortality rate really starting to rise.”

Hotez wants to see the lockdown as it was applied at the end of March, he said. “Because everything is so terrible, we must intervene now and we must be very aggressive in implementing measures to stay at home and other measures of social distance.”

“This time, we must return to what is called the ‘detention mode,’ which means less than one new case per million population per day,” Hotez said.

In Arizona, the hospital system needs to implement contingency plans due to an increase in new Covid-19 cases, said Will Humble, executive director of the Arizona Public Health Association, on Wednesday.

He estimates the state hospital will enter surge capacity mode on July 4.

“What I’m going to focus on now is ringing the alarm to our hospital system to get ready,” Humble said. “Because whatever you do at this point, given where we are in an increase in cases, is exponential growth, taking into account the incubation period for this virus, we will go into surge capacity mode on the Fourth of July.”

Health officials in the state need to “prepare a contingency plan because, at this point, I see no alternative but to preparing crisis standards in Arizona maybe, maybe in 10 days, maybe less,” Humble said.

Arizona is one of the five states with the most recent cases, reporting 3,779 cases on Tuesday, according to John Hopkins.

In Florida, officials appointed Miami-Dade County as one of the hardest-hit areas in the state but said patients who needed hospitalization appeared to be younger and less ill, according to reports from Miami Herald. One doctor to the newspaper many infections can be associated with community spread.
The observations echoed announcements by many city and state leaders in recent days – especially in the South – which highlighted that the case seemed to shift to younger groups. In many cases, officials point back to examples including parties and bars as sources of the recent cluster.
New research shows Black Lives Matter protests across the country have not caused a surge in cases.

Likewise, while some politicians say that increased testing is the cause of the increase in positive cases, that is not necessarily the case, said Michael Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research & Policy at the University of Minnesota.

“This is not an artifact of more testing at all,” he said.

In New York City, Mayor Bill de Blasio tweeted Tuesday the beach will open for swimming starting July 1.

According to Paulo Pisco, a socialist member of the commission, the opinions of the BE, PKP and PAN were approved, but Chega’s opinion deserved to be abstained from the PS because it contained “xenophobic elements” in its purpose.

The MP had in mind, in particular, the recipients of this teaching, which is currently intended not only for the Portuguese or the descendants of the Portuguese, but also for those who want to learn the Portuguese language, with which Chega allegedly disagrees, according to Paulo Pisco. .


After the approval of these opinions, the abolition of the bribe would be discussed and voted on in the plenary session of the Assembly of the Republic, but Paulo Pisco said that they should not be approved, since the “commitment” of the government is different.

“The government’s obligation is to reduce the burden of the Portuguese” and this will always be determined “in every approved state budget”.
