  • According to CNN, as of 12:00pm on Friday, June 26, 2020, there are 124,509 coronavirus-related deaths and 2,425,814 total positive cases in the United States.
  • Across the United States, 39,327 new coronavirus infections were reported by state health departments on Thursday — surpassing the previous single-day record of 38,115, which was set on Wednesday. Texas, Alabama, Missouri and Nevada reported daily highs. Texas reported 5,996 new coronavirus cases on Thursday, beating Wednesday’s record of 5,551. The state’s rolling average of 4,581 was a record and 340 percent higher than the rolling average on Memorial Day. The 47 new deaths were the most since May 20. Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine (R) raised alarms about the biggest jump in new cases in his state since April, emphasizing that more than increased testing is at play. Ohio reported 892 new cases on Thursday, compared to 632 on Wednesday. The number of Americans who have been infected with the novel coronavirus is likely 10 times higher than the number of cases reported, according to the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In a call with reporters Thursday, CDC Director Robert Redfield said, “Our best estimate right now is that for every case that’s reported, there actually are 10 other infections.” While testing has increased, health experts say that in several states with rising caseloads, new cases are outpacing the spread of testing.

The flexibilities granted by waivers from the USDA specifically related to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) reduce the need for in-person interactions between Department of Human Service (DHS) staff and current and potential clients, keeping both safer from COVID-19 while allowing DHS to continue to meet needs of Pennsylvanians during this period of economic uncertainty.

  • Allegheny County Executive
    • Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald said Wednesday he hoped that businesses and individuals would continue maskings and physical distancing without having to implement tighter restrictions. And Allegheny County Health Director Dr. Debra Bogen seemed to differ from comments about COVID-19 infection made earlier in the day by a UPMC official. There has been a sharp rise in COVID-19 case counts in recent days. Wednesday saw a second 45-case increase in positive COVID-19 tests in three days, when there were no new cases reported a week ago Monday. Fitzgerald and Allegheny County Health Director Dr. Debra Bogen said they are concerned by the rise, which appears to be mostly in adults 19-49 years old, according to case investigations. Allegheny County has been in the green phase of the state's reopening plan since mid-May.

 

National Coronavirus Updates

  • According to CNN, as of 11:45am on Thursday, June 25, 2020, there are 122,071 coronavirus-related deaths and 2,388,865 total positive cases in the United States.
  • Ashish Jha, director of the Harvard Global Health Institute, said Thursday on the “Today” show that a spike this week in U.S. cases of the novel coronavirus was caused by a rush to reopen the nation’s economy without proper safety measures in place. State health departments reported 38,115 new infections on Wednesday, the highest single-day caseload in the United States since the pandemic began. Texas, Florida and California reported the most cases, with more than 5,000 each. “It is pretty alarming. It is pretty worrisome,” Jha said. “We had hoped that we would be able to keep the virus at bay for a while, but we are seeing these resurgences, largely because we opened up too quickly, and we opened up without the right safeguards in place. And I’m worried that we’re going to see increases in the number of cases in the days and weeks ahead,” Jha added. It’s true, he said, that some states have increased their testing capacity, which is contributing to the increase in case numbers. But he also said that testing alone does not explain the spike. Hospitalization rates are up, too. To contain the uptick in cases, Jha said that hot-spot states such as Texas, Florida and California should implement statewide mask-wearing laws in public places, discourage indoor restaurant dining and continue to discourage large gatherings.

Federal Coronavirus Updates

  • Department of Health and Human Services
    • The federal official overseeing coronavirus testing efforts pushed back against reports the federal government is poised to stop providing federal aid to testing sites in some hard-hit states, including Texas, where new cases have spiked sharply in recent weeks. Brett Giroir, the assistant secretary for health in the Department of Health and Human Services, wrote on Twitter on Tuesday night that the government has expanded from 41 testing sites to more than 600 in 48 states and the District of Columbia. “In addition, 93 percent of all community health centers offer COVID-19 testing — at thousands of locations,” he wrote, adding that the HHS will work to increase testing capacity and to make it accessible to underserved communities. Giroir also testified before a House committee Tuesday along with top federal infectious-disease expert Dr. Anthony S. Fauci; Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Robert Redfield; and Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Stephen Hahn. All four officials denied they had ever been directed to reduce testing after Trump told rally goers in Tulsa that he had charged officials to “slow the testing down.”
  • International Monetary Fund
    • The International Monetary Fund on Wednesday painted a bleak portrait of the global economy, saying the coronavirus pandemic has caused more widespread damage than expected and will be followed by a sluggish recovery. The global economy will shrink this year by 4.9 percent, worse than the 3 percent decline predicted in April, the IMF said. No major economy is escaping the pandemic. The U.S. economy, the world’s largest, is expected to shrink this year by 8 percent. Countries that use the single European currency are headed for a decline of more than 10 percent while Japanese output will fall by 5.8 percent, the IMF said. The Chinese economy, suffering the twin ravages of the pandemic and the trade war with the U.S, is projected to eke out just a 1 percent gain -- its worst performance in several decades. Fund officials blamed the darker forecast on the effects of social distancing; scarring to global production capacity from the lockdown of activity; and the productivity cost of new safety and hygiene rules. Government crisis-fighting efforts -- including $11 trillion in spending and tax cuts -- have kept the economic collapse from worsening, the fund said. Earlier this month, Kristalina Georgieva, the fund’s managing director, called the pandemic recession “a crisis like no other” and said that by the end of this year, an unprecedented 170 countries would see average individual incomes fall.

Federal Coronavirus Updates

  • Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
    • Anthony S. Fauci, the government’s top infectious-disease expert, is set to testify on Capitol Hill on Tuesday alongside other leading public health officials, as the United States grapples with the course of its response to the novel coronavirus pandemic. They are expected to caution that coronavirus activity could continue for “some time.” Amid rising new infections in most states, some state and local officials are pushing to lift restrictions and return to a degree of normalcy. Some of the states moving fastest to reopen — Arizona, Florida and Texas — have seen record surges in new cases. “We are still in the first wave” of the coronavirus, Fauci warned last week. Worldwide, there are more than 9 million confirmed cases of the virus, with nearly 2.3 million cases and 118,000 deaths reported in the United States alone.

  • According to CNN, as of 12:45pm on Tuesday, June 23, 2020, there are 120,674 coronavirus-related deaths and 2,323,755 total positive cases in the United States.
  • Health experts are warning about the danger of scaling back restrictions and offering context about growing number of infections in some states after President Trump said Saturday that he had asked health officials to scale back coronavirus testing. Sanjay Gupta, associate professor of neurosurgery at Emory University Hospital and CNN chief medical correspondent, said more testing needs to be done to combat the spread of the virus — not less. Gupta said the administration has been slow to implement testing ever since the first cruise ship with an outbreak was ordered to stay offshore the United States as officials plotted how to handle the number of infections abroad. “In the middle of the biggest public health disaster in a hundred years, to say to stop doing or to slow down doing the one thing that could help us at least get out of this mess was really sort of mind-numbing,” he said. The increasing number of infections isn’t surprising considering many states reopened before seeing an actual decrease in infection or having effective safeguards against infection, according to Ashish Jha, director of the Harvard Global Health Institute. Trump’s assertion that the rise in cases can be explained with the amount of testing happening, but that explanation isn’t the whole story, Jha said. “We are doing more testing and that’s part of the reason, but much if it is just because we have more infections,” he said, adding that more testing wouldn’t explain the increase in hospitalizations.
