dueling womens marches for and against trumps scotus pick amy coney barrett take place nationwide

Thousands of protesters marched in Washington, DC, and elsewhere in the United States on Saturday to protest Donald Trump‘s Supreme Court nominee and to call for his defeat in the November 3 election while a smaller group of counter-demonstrators held a rally in support of his nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett.

A mostly young, diverse crowd of masked women rallied on Saturday in the nation’s capital, exhorting voters to oppose Trump and his fellow Republican candidates in the upcoming elections. 

The rallies, which organizers said were taking place in all 50 states, were inspired by the first Women’s March in Washington, a huge anti-Trump rally held a day after his 2017 inauguration.

But in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, the demonstrations Saturday were considerably smaller.

Organizers urged people worried about in-person participation to join in a ‘socially distant text-banking telethon’ aimed at sending five million messages encouraging people to vote.

The organizers sent out messages asking would-be participants who live in states on the District of Columbia’s quarantine list not to attend the rally in the capital. 

Marchers also paid tribute to late Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg – an icon for women and progressives – while protesting Trump’s choice of conservative judge Amy Coney Barrett to replace her.

According to the Women's March web site, more than 400 demonstrations and rallies were planned all across the 50 states on Saturday

The parade route in Washington started near the White House before heading to the US Capitol and then to the National Mall. 

Rachel O’Leary Carmona, executive director of the Women’s March, opened the event by asking people to keep their distance from one another, saying that the only superspreader event would be the recent one at the White House.

She talked about the power of women to end Trump’s presidency.

‘His presidency began with women marching and now it’s going to end with woman voting. Period,’ she said.

‘The first Women’s March in 2017 was historic,’ Carmona said.

‘Now four years later … with 17 days to go (until the election), we’re going to finish what we started.’ 

Some protesters were heading afterward to the Supreme Court building, where a smaller ‘I’m With Her’ counterprotest – in Barrett’s favor – was scheduled.

The counter-protest in favor of Barrett’s confirmation was staged by the Independent Women’s Forum, a conservative non-profit, according to USA Today

Most marchers in Washington wore protective masks, with some dressed as Ginsburg in black robes with white lace collars, and several wore the knitted pink hats made famous by the original march.

March organizers said they are the driving force that will lead to a Biden victory come November 3.

‘We are the hell and the high water,’ said Sonja Spoo, director of the Reproductive Rights Campaigns at UltraViolet, a women’s advocacy group. 

‘Donald Trump is leaving office, and there is no choice for him.

‘Come November 3, it will because of women – especially Black, brown and Indigenous women – stepping up and saying enough.’ 

More than 429 smaller, sister rallies were expected to take place in all 50 states on Saturday, according to the Women’s March web site.

In New York City, around 300 people gathered at Manhattan’s Washington Square, many with pink hats and signs supporting Trump’s Democratic opponents Joe Biden and Kamala Harris or honoring Ginsburg. 

It was one of five separate marches in the city.

‘It’s really important to be here and try to encourage people to vote out Trump and his misogynistic policies, especially now, with Covid, when a lot of people are isolated,’ said Yvonne Shackleton, a 47-year-old working mother from near Albany, about a three-hour drive from New York City.

The Women’s March website, harking back to the huge turnout for the 2017 marches, said, ‘We need to bring that same power and determination to October 17 to cap off Trump’s presidency just the way it started – with massive, women-led resistance.’

Trump’s support from women has dropped sharply – particularly among suburban women. 

He now trails Biden among likely women voters by 23 points, according to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll.

Coronavirus UK: Hull, Bath and Derby outbreaks growing quickest

coronavirus uk hull bath and derby outbreaks growing quickest

Covid-19 outbreaks are growing fastest in Hull, Derby, and Bath, according to official data that MailOnline has converted into an interactive tool to show how quickly cases are rising in your town. 

Hull and Derby saw their coronavirus epidemics almost double in the seven-day spell ending October 25, with seven-day infection rates jumping to 279 and 329 cases per 100,000 people, respectively. 

Both cities, along with the rest of Staffordshire and Derbyshire, will be moved from Tier One into Tier Two from Saturday to try and stem the rise in infections, it was announced yesterday as England crept another step closer towards a full national lockdown.

But most of the authorities where epidemics have grown the most remain in Tier One, where only the rule of six and 10pm curfew apply. Scientists have argued these rules are not stringent enough to shrink the outbreak, with top Government advisers warning the current growth is ‘very bleak’.  

For example, North Somerset and Bath and North East Somerset, where cases jumped up 83 per cent and 70 per cent in one week, have yet to be hit by any tougher virus-controlling restrictions. It comes despite warnings that the coronavirus crisis is ‘speeding up’ in the south of the country. 

Public Health England’s weekly surveillance report revealed only 20 of all 150 authorities in England saw a drop in infections last week, including Nottingham where cases dropped by 30 per cent. Despite the city’s outbreak shrinking, it will be thrown under the toughest Tier Three restrictions from tomorrow, along with the rest of the county.

And the data offered more proof that the tightest lockdown measures do work, with Liverpool, Knowsley, Sefton and St Helens all seeing their weekly coronavirus infection rates drop. All of the Merseyside area has been under Tier Three lockdown since October 14. 

It suggests the brutal restrictions — which ban people from socialising with anyone outside their own household and mean many pubs, bars, and in some cases gyms, have to close — are beginning to work. However, scientists say the true effect of measure won’t be clear until a few weeks have passed. 

It comes as Boris Johnson is facing renewed pressure from his medical officers to impose a nation-wide shutdown before and after Christmas in a bid to allow families to gather over the holidays. Dominic Raab today hinted No10 could introduce a new Tier Four set of even stricter restrictions and refused to rule out a national lockdown. 

Percentage change in coronavirus cases across London in the week to October 25: The five local authorities where the infection rate grew the most are: Kingston upon Hull City, 92.81 per cent; Derby, 91.84 per cent; North Somerset, 82.99 per cent; Medway, 77.17 per cent; and Bath and North East Somerset 69.72 per cent

Yesterday it was announced another 16 authorities would be dragged into Tier Two from Saturday. A number of them were among the 20 places where outbreaks have significantly worsened, according to Public Health England (PHE) data. 

PHE’s data is based on the number of positive swabs within the week October 19 to 25. The new infections can be divided by the population size for each given area to give a case rate per 100,000 people. This allows for figures between different areas to be compared accurately. 

For example in Kingston upon Hull, 279 new cases were diagnosed per 100,000 people in that seven-day period. The week prior, the figure was 145, showing an increase of 93 per cent.

Similarly Derby city’s infection rate rose by 92 per cent, from 171 to 328 cases per 100,000. It suggests that the outbreak is doubling every seven days in those locations. 

But both areas may have asked for more testing to help them contain the virus, meaning just looking at the growth may not paint the entire picture. Department of Health statistics that breakdown tests processed by local authority only go up until October 21, meaning it is not possible to tell exactly how much swabbing skewed the figures over that fortnight.

Earlier this week, Derby’s director of public health, Dr Robyn Dewis, called for all the city’s 259,000 residents to start adhering to Tier Two restrictions.

The advice came in anticipation of being moved into the higher level, which ministers confirmed last night would be happening. Amber Valley, Bolsover, Derbyshire Dales, Derby City, South Derbyshire, and the whole of High Peak will be moved into Tier Two as of Saturday. 

Dr Dewis told MailOnline: ‘I can never feel pleased to be asking our residents to make restrictions in their daily lives, however I do feel that it is urgent that we take action to reduce the spread of the virus. 

‘We have seen a rapid growth across the city with all wards affected. Importantly we are now seeing a significant increase in the over 60s who are infected.’

Meanwhile, North Somerset (83 per cent increase) and Bath and North East Somerset (70 per cent increase) also saw major growths in their outbreaks. 

But their infection rates of 130.2 and 191 are currently well below the average for the UK (230 per 100,000). This may explain why they remain in the ‘medium’ alert level, Tier One. 

Matt Lenny, director of public health at North Somerset Council said in a statement: ‘Analysis of the latest case data also shows that there’s no clear pattern of infection in local communities. 

‘The case data tells us that the virus is circulating generally in our community and we are no longer seeing greater rates of infection just in younger people.

‘I urge every resident in North Somerset to make the right choices when going about their daily lives.

‘We are at a critical point as cases rise and people mix and spend more time indoors. We should all be acting as if we already have the virus and modifying our behaviours to reduce the spread.’  

While places in Somerset are not considered Covid-19 hotspots in England, they may become so if measures are not adopted sooner, rather than later, to slow the spread of growth.

Experts have previously said it’s the speed at which an outbreak is growing — and not its current size — that is the most important factor when considering the severity of the situation in any given area. 

Ministers are understood to analyse a ‘basket’ of indicators to make decisions on Covid-19 restrictions, including the infection rate, hospital admissions and speed of growth. 

Dominic Raab says Government is ‘ready’ for TIER FOUR COVID restrictions 

Dominic Raab today hinted the Government could introduce a new Tier Four set of even stricter coronavirus restrictions as he refused to rule out a national lockdown. 

The Government’s current local lockdown system is based on three tiers but there are fears that even the most draconian rules in Tier Three are not enough to stop the spread of the disease. 

A new Tier Four could see non-essential shops told to close and travel limited to getting to work and school. 

Mr Raab said the Government is ‘always ready for further measures’ as he insisted ministers intend to stick to their localised approach of cracking down on infections. 

But the Foreign Secretary admitted that both Germany and France had also used a strategy of local crackdowns before ultimately being forced into new nation shutdowns. 

He would only go so far as saying the Government is ‘striving to avoid’ following the UK’s European neighbours as he resisted imposing a ‘blanket approach or a blunt approach’. 

Mr Raab told the BBC’s Radio 4 Today programme: ‘We are always ready for further measures that we can take but I think the most important thing about further measures is we continue on the track that we are on of targeting the virus.

‘The difference between now and the first lockdown is we are in a much better place to really focus on where the virus is the greatest and I think that is right, not only in scientific and virus management terms, I think in terms of the way people feel about tackling the virus it is fair, it fits the natural justice that we are focusing on the areas where the uptick is the greatest and we are not taking a one-size-fits-all approach or a blanket approach or a blunt approach.’

Mr Raab said the Government wanted to avoid the ‘arbitrariness of a blanket approach’ as he claimed the public favour targeted restrictions. 

However, he did not rule out eventually having to impose a national lockdown after France and Germany made the move earlier this week. 

He said: ‘You mention France. France of course tried a localised approach and then fell back on the national approach.

‘What I think that shows you, Germany is the same, is how important it is that we all rally together at local level through to national level, communities, local leaders, national leaders, and really lean in to the localised focused approach.

‘That is the most effective way to tackle the virus and avoid the blanket approach which I don’t think would be in the best interests of this country and which we are striving to avoid.’

Mr Raab said it is ‘crucially important’ to ‘carry the public with us’ and that he believed the Government’s tiered approach is the best way to do that.

South Gloucestershire, in the south west, and Herefordshire in the West Midlands, also saw their outbreaks rapidly grow in the space of one week, by around 60 per cent. However, their infection rates are also lower than the national average and currently stand at 192 and 86, respectively.

The figures indicate the ‘second wave’ is now affecting all corners of England, and not just the north.   

Scientists warned this week infections are ‘speeding up’ in the south.

A worrying Government-funded study by Imperial College London found that the outbreak appears to be growing fastest in London and the South West, where rules are comparatively lax, and slowest in the northern regions with the toughest restrictions. 

They predicted the R rate — the average number of people each carrier infects — is also higher than two in the South East, East and South West, which have mostly escaped any tough local lockdowns.  

But the R rate in the capital is higher than anywhere else in England, at three. For comparison, the experts claimed the national R rate is around 1.6. Cases are doubling every three days compared to every nine days in the rest of England, the study claimed.  

The PHE data shows just 20 out of 149 councils recorded a fall in their Covid-19 infection rates in the week ending October 25. For comparison, 23 saw a dip the week before. 

A  number of large cities saw their infection rates drop in the week to October 25. This includes Nottingham (down 30 per cent), Liverpool (down 21 per cent), Sheffield (down 2.46 per cent) and Leeds (down 1.22 per cent).

But despite this, Nottingham and Leeds will be plunged into Tier Three restrictions this weekend. And there are no clear path for Liverpool and Sheffield to move out of their local ‘lockdowns’.

Liverpool, and the rest of Merseyside including Halton, Knowsley, Sefton, St Helens and Wirral, went straight into Tier Three when the tiered system came into force on October 14. All those places saw infection rates drop in the most recent week, other than Wirral, where cases only rose by 6 per cent. 

A number of places under Tier Two also saw drops in infection rates, including York (20 per cent), South Tyneside (5 per cent) and Newcastle upon Tyne (down a slight 0.42 per cent).

Parts of London — Camden (down 10 per cent), Hackney and City of London (down 4.60 per cent) and Richmond upon Thames (down 3.96 per cent) — also saw improvements in infection rates. These areas have some of the highest infection rates in London, suggesting that residents have acted to control the coronavirus.

But it’s understood London could be thrown into Tier Three lockdown within two weeks unless infection rates drop significantly across the whole capital. 

Londoners are currently banned from meeting indoors with anyone they don’t live with. 

However London Mayor Sadiq Khan is piling on pressure on No10 to drag the city into Tier Three, despite infection rates varying across the 32 different boroughs – from 223 positive tests per 100,000 people in Ealing over the most recent week, to 103 per 100,000 in Lewisham. 

It comes after the Government’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (Sage) reportedly said this week all of England could be in Tier Three lockdown by mid-December if a national lockdown is not adopted before.

They said virus rates all over the country will soar past the levels seen in areas already put into the ‘very high’ category by the festive season, The Sun reported, with ‘a government source’ saying: ‘The latest Sage numbers are utterly bleak.’

SAGE has piled fresh pressure on Boris Johnson to impose tougher restrictions as it warned up to 85,000 people could die in a second wave. A ‘reasonable worst case scenario’ put forward by SAGE suggested daily deaths could remain above 500 for three months or more until March next year.

Almost 60 per cent of the population – around 32.6 million – will be under stricter rules by Monday

London ‘will go into Tier 3 lockdown in two weeks’ as Britain faces a super-spreader Christmas

London could be plunged into Tier 3 lockdown within two weeks as England creeped closer towards full national lockdown by the back door last night, with millions told they will face extra curbs.    

Boris Johnson is facing renewed pressure from his medical officers to impose a nation-wide shutdown before and after Christmas in a bid to allow families to gather over the holidays, and sources close so Sadiq Khan expect the capital to be locked down imminently.

Senior figures are warning that the UK’s three-tier system is not enough to ‘get on top of the numbers’, with deputy chief medical officer Jonathan Van-Tam reportedly beginning to change his mind over whether regional lockdowns will suppress the virus . He backed the move at a No 10 press conference last week

Presenting what one source called ‘very, very bleak’ data to a meeting of Covid-O, the the Cabinet subcommittee on coronavirus, he said that daily hospital admissions had reached the highest level since April at 1,404.  

There are fears that the whole country will be at Tier 3 by Christmas, and unable to meet extended family members unless the Government takes harsh, draconian action before the season.

Allowing people to visit family at Christmas will be a ‘spreader event’ that could cause a spike in infections many times worse than that caused by the return of university students, experts believe. 

But introducing national restrictions before and after Christmas, while lifting them for the big day could help minimise the impact. 

One senior health official told the Telegraph that anti-Covid measures were most likely to be successful if they were taken on a national basis rather than toughening up the rules for Tier 3. 

They added that a post-Christmas ‘circuit-breaker’ lockdown could also help reverse numbers and curb rising numbers of hospitalisations as fears spread that Britain’s ICUs could be overrun.

‘Releasing measures for two days is unlikely to cause a big upswing,’ a source said.’ But it won’t do nothing. Christmas brings people from all over the country to sit inside together, so its quite likely to be a spreading event.

‘But people want to see their loved ones and they want to make physical contact, and we have to recognise that.’

Independent experts told MailOnline it’s likely most of the places in England that are in Tier One will move into Tier Two by Christmas because the Rule of Six and 10pm curfew are not enough to stamp out rising infections. 

Martin McKee, a professor of European public health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and member of Independent Sage, said: ‘We unfortunately have allowed the infection to get out of control and as a consequence we are going to need to turn this around, otherwise it will just keep going up, more will get seriously ill and more people will die.

‘The sooner we impose tighter restrictions, the better. I see MPs saying “the rates are low in my area so we shouldn’t do anything”. It’s not about if case are low, it’s about if they are increasing rapidly. 

‘We saw very clearly in March that it’s better sooner than later. So we really should be doing this now, we really have no time to lose.’

But Professor McKee stressed that with tighter restrictions, three essential things are needed — a clampdown on indoor social mixing where the virus can spread easily, mental health support, and a working test and trace system. Currently the UK’s NHS Test and Trace is not performing to the ‘world beating’ status that was promised.

Professor McKee added: ‘As long as infections are going up, we have a major problem. Simply because of the nature of exponential growth. It’s a simple nature of mathematics. Even if the infections are going up even slightly, the rate of growth will go upwards faster. 

‘On the other hand, if we can put in really stringent measure to stop people mixing with each other, you can get a large drop in quite a short period of time.

Professor Paul Hunter, an infectious disease expert at the University of East Anglia, said: ‘The Tier One restrictions are clearly not working in terms of suppressing the epidemic. I suspect the government would decide to increase, in most areas of the country, will at least move into Tier Two in the next month. And some of the current Tier Two will move into Tier Three. 

‘The interesting thing is it’s not going up quite as quickly in the northern cities as it was. And in some of those cities, such as Liverpool, it does seem to be declining a bit already.

‘I think it’s a little too early to say whether these Tier Two/Tier Three levels are not working. The bottom line is the higher restrictions may be working but it’s too early to be sure.

‘In the southern small town rural areas, that’s where a lot of the current increases are at the moment. It’s very obvious cases are increasing in the south now. Pretty much everywhere in between is on the up.

‘The issue is what time will they decide that is no longer acceptable or tolerable and then increase restrictions in those areas.’

Simon Clarke, an associate professor in cellular microbiology at University of Reading, said: ‘Are local restriction enough? They should be, but the problem is not so much going from Tier Two to Three, but going from One to Two. We know in certain parts of the country that is not happening quickly enough.

‘My gut feeling is we are heading for tightening restrictions between now and into the new year. I think that it will be something like Tier Three or perhaps tighter. I think we will get a tier 4 added on top. But it’s just a guess.’ 

Britain is slowly creeping one step closer to a de facto lockdown every day, with the UK confirming another 23,065 positive test results and 280 deaths yesterday.

Cases are up 8.6 per cent on the 21,242 announced last Thursday, while deaths have increased by 48 per cent in the same time.

Allowing people to visit family at Christmas will be a spreader event that could cause a spike in infections many times worse than that caused by the return of university students, experts believe.

But introducing national restrictions before and after Christmas, while lifting them for the big day could help minimise the impact. 

Almost 60 per cent of the population – around 32.6 million – will be under stricter rules by Monday, and it is understood London could be moved into the top tier in two weeks unless infection rates drop significantly.

Sixteen areas will move into the ‘high risk’ Tier Two at midnight including Oxford, Luton, East Riding of Yorkshire, Kingston Upon Hull, Derbyshire Dales, Derby and Staffordshire.

That means that more than 21.6 million face the restrictions that include a ban on socialising indoors with anyone from another household, whether at home or in bars, restaurants and cafes. 

A further 11 million will be in the ‘very high risk’ Tier Three from midnight on Sunday when Leeds and the rest of West Yorkshire are added to the places where pubs are closed unless serving food.

This will leave only 23.7million without enhanced restrictions.

With tougher restrictions in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, it means just over three-fifths of the UK population are living under extra lockdown restrictions.

COVID-positive people spread the infection to others at home 53% of the time

covid positive people spread the infection to others at home 53 of the time

If someone in your household tests positive for COVID-19, there is a 53 percent chance they will pass it on to you or someone else living under your roof, a new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) finds. 

And the transmission rate was similar regardless of whether the first coronavirus patient was an adult or child. 

Prior research has found that a person is more likely to catch coronavirus at home than in other locations such as stores or public transit. 

But the CDC authors also warn that rates of secondary infections are higher in the US than in other nations where people are more consistently isolated within or outside their homes, or where families are more likely to wear masks at home. 

People who have coronavirus pass it to other members of their households about 53% of the time, no matter how  old the first patient is, the CDC found (file)

The CDC closely tracked 101 Americans who tested positive for coronavirus and 191 people who lived with them. 

People between 18 and 49 were most likely to be the index patients – the first infected – and primary infections were least common among children younger than 12. 

Young children represented just five percent of all index patients, and people aged 50 and older made up 41 percent of cases. 

Nearly a quarter (22 percent) of the index patients had some form of underlying condition. Asthma was the most common, with 23 percent of initial coronavirus patients suffering the common respiratory condition.  

More importantly, 19 percent of all household members of initial coronavirus cases had underlying  conditions that might make them more vulnerable to infection and severe COVID-19. 

Thirteen percent had asthma, seven percent had each heart disease and diabetes, one percent had kidney disease and two percent were immunocompromised or smoked.

Most of the first cases in each household did not have symptoms when they tested positive, while  41 percent did. 

People who have symptoms likely have higher viral loads and are more infectious than asymptomatic people, though research suggests that people with no symptoms are anywhere between 25 and 75 percent as infectious as those  with symptoms. 

But within a week, 67 percent developed symptoms. 

In total, the virus was passed from the first case to at least one other household member in 53 percent of homes.  

Transmissions happened fast. Three-quarters of secondary infections happened within just five days of the first household member getting sick. 

The rate of transmission from children under 12 to other household members was even higher, at 57 percent.

People aged  50 or older were actually least likely to pass coronavirus to a family member, which happened in 43 percent of cases. 

Young adults between 18 and 49 were most likely to infect another person in their household, transmitting the infection 59 percent of the time. 

‘Secondary infection rates were high across all racial/ethnic groups. Substantial transmission occurred whether the index patient was an adult or a child,’ the CDC authors noted. 

‘Other studies, particularly those conducted abroad, might have found lower secondary infection rates because of rapid isolation of patients in facilities outside households or different adoption of control measures, such as mask use, in the home.’ 

The CDC researchers urged that anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 be isolated, preferably outside the home, but at least within it. 

What’s more, they underscored how frequently initial cases had no symptoms at  the time of the their positive tests, signalling that isolating as soon as there’s been a possible exposure might be wise to prevent the infection from spreading at home.

US reports single-day record of 88,500 cases with states like Illinois reporting all-time highs

us reports single day record of 88500 cases with states like illinois reporting all time highs

The US set a record-high number of coronavirus cases with more than 88,500 new infections reported in a single day Thursday.

This breaks the previous record set on Saturday of 83,757 and brings the total number of cases to 8.9 million.   

Several states also reported their own single-day high number of cases with nearly 6,400 new cases recorded in Illinois, more than 2,000 in Colorado and more than 1,000 in North Dakota.

The seven-day rolling average number of new daily cases also hit a high of 76,541 according to a DailyMail.com analysis of data from Johns Hopkins University.  

President Donald Trump tweeted on Friday that ‘more testing equals more cases’ and claimed that COVID-19 coronavirus deaths are ‘WAY DOWN.’

However, while daily deaths are low compared to figures seen in the early days of the pandemic, they are creeping back upward with 971 fatalities reported on Thursday and 994 reported on Wednesday.

On average, about 800 people are dying per day, according to the DailyMail.com analysis.

Death rates have dropped for the most severely ill patients – from more than 25 percent to less than 10 percent, according to one New York City hospital – but experts say the recent surge in infections could undo the progress.

The US set a record-high with more than 88,500 new coronavirus cases on Thursday, breaking the previous single-day record of around 83,700 on Saturday

Cases have been surging across the country, with the Midwest and Mountain West in particular seeming to shatter new records every day.

In Illinois, health officials reported a single-day high of 6,363 new COVID-19 cases on Thursday.

Statewide metrics since October 1 are staggering with cases up 151 percent, deaths up 82 percent and hospitalizations up 73 percent, reported WLS-TV.

‘We have a real problem on our hands and people’s lives hang in the balance,’ Gov. JB Pritzker said during a press conference yesterday.

Pritzker recently banned indoor dining in restaurants and indoor service at bars and has called for no gatherings of more than 25 guests or 25 percent of overall room capacity  

In nearby Wisconsin, things aren’t much better. 

On Thursday, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services reported 4,870 new infections – nearly a 37 percent positive test rate – and second only to the record-high of 5,262 recorded on Tuesday.

According to WBAY, the state has added almost 15,000 coronavirus cases to the total count in the last four days.

Health officials say the seven-day rolling average is 4,128 new cases a day and the seven-day average positivity rate is 29.11 percent, both figures of which are all-time highs.

Wisconsin was the subject of a recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that tracked the spread of COVID-19 at a summer camp in the southeastern part of the state. 

Between July 2 and August 11, one camper, who tested negative before arrival, contracted the virus and then spread it to nearly 80 percent of the camp’s attendees.

‘COVID-19 spreads like wildfire when you bring a lot of people together in a relatively small space,’ Julie Willems Van Dijk, told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

‘If there was one person who was ill with COVID-19, they easily spread that to everyone in their housing unit and then the nature of summer camp where you eat meals together, go swimming together, do activities together, sing around the campfire together – all of those activities are great spreading events.

Among the Great Plains, two states, North Dakota and South Dakota, were largely spared from the virus until recently, and currently have two of the country’s worst outbreaks 

In North Dakota, health officials reported a record of 1,222 new cases on Thursday after three straight days of declines and shattering the previous high of 1,038 on October 22.

The state has the second worst infection rate with 99 cases per 100,000 people. 

This is a slight drop of its previous high of 105 per 100,000, which at the time made it the first US state to surpass 100 per 100,000 since the pandemic began.

‘This is what may appear to be the beginning of the fall surge’ that experts such as Dr Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, has warned about for months, said Gov Doug Burgum during a briefing on Thursday.

With holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas coming up, he added: ‘This is going to be a real challenging time.’  

South Dakota, meanwhile, is reporting 95 cases per 100,000 – much higher than the US overall of 22 cases per 10,000 people, and the current worst rate in the nation.

What’s more, the state reported 1,000 cases on Thursday, which a positive test rate of 40 percent.

Trump’s explanation of more testing doesn’t explain the surge. Vox reports that the testing average in South Dakota increased by 11 percent but cases soared by 20 percent

Dr Bonny Specker, an epidemiologist at South Dakota State University, told the site that the reason for the rise in the Dakota was due to a lack of public health measures. 

‘Federal and many state leaders have not implemented mandates or reinforced [public health agencies] recommendations to prevent the spread of the virus,’ she said.

‘In South Dakota, the governor had the information needed to minimize the impact of this virus on the health of South Dakotans, but she ignored that information as well as national recommendations from the CDC.’ 

Wyoming currently ranks fifth in the nation with 57.9 new infections per 100,000 people and a positive test rate of 55.21%

 In the Mountain West, the least populous state in the union – Wyoming – now ranks among the worst states for COVID-19 infection rate.

The state now ranks fifth in the nation with 57.9 new infections per 100,000 people. 

Wyoming has seen 2,298 new confirmed and probable cases of the virus in the past week, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.

This means the positive test rate is now at 55.21 percent. It’s a huge jump from the roughly 500 people testing positive in Wyoming in July.

Dr Deborah Birx, the coordinator for the White House Coronavirus Task Force, visited the Wind River Hotel and Casino on Wednesday to Wyoming’s COVID-19 response.

She said the surge is due to lack of face masks indoors and the need of people under 35 to get tested regularly regardless of whether or not they display symptoms.

‘Wear your mask, physically distance, but really pay attention to what you’re doing in the household, in both public and private spaces, to not gather in that way that we know is spreading the virus,’ Birx said. 

Daily deaths are low compared to figures seen in the early days of the pandemic, with 971 recorded on Thursday, but are creeping back up towards 1,000 per day

Experts say the reason for the drop in death rate is likely due to a combination of factors including better understanding of how to treat the disease AND  better awareness among the general public

However, across the US. researchers have found that the death rate among the most seriously ill patients seems to be improving.

A new study from NYU Langone Health looked at the outcomes of more than 5,000 COVID-19 patients hospitalized among the system’s three hospitals between March and August.

Experts say the reason for the drop in death rate is likely due to a combination of factors including better understanding of how to treat the disease, better awareness among the general public and people being treated before their cases become serious.

‘We don’t have a magic bullet cure, but we have a lot, a lot of little things, that add up,’ senior author Dr Leora Horwitz, director of NYU Langone’s Center for Healthcare Innovation & Delivery Science, told The New York Times. 

We understand better when people need to be on ventilators and when they don’t, and what complications to watch for, like blood clots and kidney failure. 

‘We understand how to watch for oxygen levels even before patients are in the hospital, so we can bring them in earlier. And of course, we understand that steroids are helpful, and possibly some other medications.’  

However, with cases and hospitalizations on the rise, there is fear that deaths will not be far behind.

‘If hospitals that aren’t prepared for large numbers of people have to deal with a large influx of Covid patients, or small hospitals get pulled into it, we should expect that mortality could change unfortunately. That’s a warning,’ Tom Inglesby, director of the Center for Health Security at Johns Hopkins University, told The Times.

Medical experts are worrying that the surges in cases around the country could reverse or roll back those gains.
