Regional Coronavirus Updates

  • Allegheny County Health Department
    • Of the 1,289 cases in Allegheny County, 1,244 are confirmed cases and 45 are probable cases. Of the 94 deaths to date, 84 are confirmed (had positive test) and 10 are probable. Additionally, there are 236 past or present hospitalizations (+8).
  • Allegheny County Jail
    • Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald on Wednesday April 29 shrugged off the idea of mass testing at the county jail, where at least two dozen inmates have tested positive for the coronavirus. About 1,100 inmates have been released since mid-March, the result of growing fears of COVID-19 spreading in congregate settings such as jails and prisons. The District Attorney’s Office along with jail staff and the public defenders’ office have worked since then to identify nonviolent offenders who could be safely released to home confinement. Fitzgerald said the county has been following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention regarding how to deal with cases of the virus among those who are incarcerated.
  • Reopening Allegheny County
    • Allegheny County data on cases of the coronavirus show that the county is on track to start reopening, but decisions about that timeline will be made at the state level, county officials said during a press briefing Wednesday. “Our numbers are encouraging and look to be in line with what the state is looking for,” said Dr. Debra Bogen, director of the Allegheny County Health Department. Gov. Tom Wolf last week announced a color-coded system for a phased reopening of the state by region. The entire state is currently in the red zone, with all the restrictions established in March still active. The first counties to be allowed to move into the yellow zone, which would allow some businesses to reopen with certain restrictions, are expected to be announced later this week.


Federal Coronavirus Updates

  • Labor Department
    • The American economy continues to stagger under the weight of the coronavirus pandemic, with another 3.8 million workers filing for unemployment benefits last week. The figures announced Thursday by the Labor Department bring the number of workers joining the official jobless ranks in the last six weeks to more than 30 million, and underscore just how dire economic conditions remain. If anything, according to many economists, the job losses may be far worse than government figures indicate. A study by the Economic Policy Institute found that roughly 50 percent more people than counted as filing claims in a recent four-week period may have qualified for benefits but were stymied in applying or didn’t even try because they found the process too formidable.

National Coronavirus Updates

  • According to CNN, as of 12:45 p.m. on Thursday, April 30, 2020, there are 61,288 coronavirus-related deaths and 1,046,022 total positive cases in the United States.
  • U.S. Economy
    • The federal guidelines put in place to slow the spread of the virus by encouraging people to curtail nearly all public life are set to expire today and President Trump has indicated he has no intention of extending the measures as states across the country move ahead with a variety of plans to gradually reopen their economies. The devastating cascade of dismal financial news has increased pressure on all levels of government to restart commercial activity. Economists expect figures from the current quarter, which will capture the shutdown’s impact more fully, to show that G.D.P. contracted at an annual rate of 30 percent or more, a scale not seen since the Great Depression.
