half million deaths:

    Daily average deaths and hospitalizations from the coronavirus have fallen to their lowest levels since before the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.  There were 1,235 daily deaths recorded in the last 24 hours with figures now at their lowest since the middle of October, at the start of this winter's wave of infections.  On Monday, the number of people currently in hospital with the virus fell to 55,403 marking 41 straight days of falling hospitalization numbers.  The promising news brought by the declining figures was also coupled with a restarting of the vaccination program which came to a virtual halt due to bad weather across much of the country last week.  The number of daily cases, hospitalizations and deaths are all now falling A closer look at the figures show the numbers of cases, hospitalizations and deaths are all down. So too is testing but that may be due to...

    WHITE HOUSE - As the nation marked 500,000 deaths because of COVID-19, U.S. President Joe Biden at twilight Monday walked to a White House South Portico decorated with black bunting and 500 candles. Alongside the president were first lady Jill Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris and her husband, Doug Emhoff, who is known as the second gentleman. They stood silently as the Marine Corps band played the Christian hymn, “Amazing Grace.” As the music concluded, Biden, a Catholic, made the sign of the cross. A few minutes earlier at the Cross Hall on the first floor of the White House, Biden asked the nation to join in the moment of silence and, in a subdued tone, directed remarks to those who had lost loved ones to the virus. "It seems unbelievable, but I promise you the day will come when the memory of the one you have lost brings...
    February 22, 2021 7:32 PM 15 minutes. The United States (USA) surpassed half a million deaths from COVID-19 on Monday, a grim record that no other country in the world comes close to and which is fulfilled at a time when the Government of President Joe Biden is accelerating the vaccination campaign. After 17:08 local time in the Eastern United States (22:08 GMT time), the independent count of Johns Hopkins University registered 500,071 deaths from the disease and 28,174,133 million infections. On the occasion of this dismal record, US President Joe Biden today ordered the flags of all federal buildings in the country, including the White House, and official bodies abroad, such as embassies, to fly at half-staff during the next five days in mourning. More deaths from COVID-19 than in three wars Biden issued a presidential proclamation with that order. He recalled that those more than 500,000 deaths...

    By Sangameswaran S (Reuters) - Over half a million people have died of coronavirus in the United States, as the country races to vaccinate its most vulnerable residents before new variants of the deadly disease become widespread. More people have died in the United States due to COVID-19 than any other country in the world. With 4% of the world's population, the United States has 20% of all COVID deaths and one of the highest rates of deaths per 100,000 residents, exceeded by only a few countries such as Belgium, the United Kingdom and Italy. (Graphic: https://tmsnrt.rs/34pvUyi) Unlike many countries around the world that had national lockdowns and mask mandates, former U.S. President Donald Trump left public health decisions to state and local governments, resulting in a patchwork of rules that often contradicted the advice of doctors and health officials. Following many maskless yearend holiday gatherings, January became the deadliest...

    The United States remains the country with more infections and more deaths due to coronavirus, is where they have suffered the most from the impact of the disease. They continue to add 2,000 deaths and 100,000 infections every day. The management of its former president Donald Trump and a complex federal structure for decision-making have been some reasons. The main specialist in contagious diseases in the United States, Anthony Fauci, has valued that “half a million deaths is something terrible. It is historical. We have not seen anything like it since the flu of 1918”, in an interview with the NBC network. The main health adviser assures that it is very possible that in 2022 they will still wear a mask and has ventured that the country could approach “a degree of normality” by the end of the year.

    Out of half a million Israelis who have received both doses of the Pfizer vaccine, only 544 people were diagnosed with the coronavirus — four of whom were severe cases — amounting to a 93 percent efficacy rate, an Israeli healthcare provider said. The 0.1 percent figure came after the Maccabi Health Maintenance Organization compared the vaccinated group with a control group of unvaccinated Israelis. The statistics represent the first real life data outside of clinical trials. “This data unequivocally proves that the vaccine is very effective and we have no doubt that it has saved the lives of many Israelis,” senior Maccabi official Dr. Miri Mizrahi Reuveni said after the new data release according to a translation of her remarks by The Times of Israel. She added that among those who have vaccinated and become infected with the virus, the overwhelming majority reacted with little or no symptoms. Out...

    Tami Chappel/AFP/Getty Images As the United States goes into the New Year breaking single-day records for coronavirus deaths, data from the Centers for Disease Control suggests the true cumulative U.S. death toll is approaching half a million. Last week saw two new record daily totals of conformed Covid deaths of over 3,700, and as of Friday, the official U.S. death toll was 347,870. That’s according to the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University COVID-19 Dashboard, which is generally regarded as the official source for confirmed coronavirus figures. But according to the latest available figures from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the true current death toll is likely much greater — and could surpass half a million in a matter of weeks. CDC tracks the number of deaths reported in excess of the average number of expected deaths based on prior years, and the...
    Excess deaths in California during the height of the coronavirus pandemic were higher among the elderly, minorities and those with a limited education, a new study suggests. Researchers found that, between March 1 and August 22, there were 19,806 'excess deaths' compared to years prior. Of those deaths, around 50 percent were among people aged 65 and older or black and Latino residents.  What's more, two-thirds of the excess deaths were among Californians who only completed high school/GED, or dropped out before getting their diploma. The team, from the University of California, San Francisco, says the findings show that more prevention strategies needed to be implemented in minority communities to reduce the number of deaths.  Of the 19,806 'excess' deaths that occurred in California from May 1 to August 22, the majority were among black and Latino residents as well as those without college degrees Nearly two-thirds of the...

    By Shaina Ahluwalia and Anurag Maan (Reuters) - New York, the former epicenter of the U.S. COVID-19 pandemic, became on Sunday the fourth U.S. state to surpass half a million coronavirus cases amid a nationwide surge in infections. New York State is reporting 80% more cases in the past four weeks as compared to the previous four weeks, according to a Reuters analysis. The state reported more than 2,000 new daily cases twice in recent days, a daily increase not seen since May.

    LONDON (Reuters) - More than a half million people in the United States could die from COVID-19 by the end of February next year, but around 130,000 of those lives could be saved if everybody were to wear masks, according to estimates from a modelling study. The estimates, from a study by researchers at the University of Washington's Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, show that with few effective COVID-19 treatment options and no vaccines yet available, the U.S. faces "a continued COVID-19 public health challenge through the winter". Large, populous states such as California, Texas and Florida will likely face particularly high levels of illness, deaths and demands on hospital resources, the study found. U.S. President Donald Trump's handling of the coronavirus pandemic, which has killed more than 221,000 Americans so far, has become the top election issue for him and Democratic candidate Joe Biden. Polls have shown that...
    The Associated Press reported Friday that half the COVID-19 deaths in the United States were people of color – Blacks, Hispanics, Native Americans and Asian Americans. An analysis by The Associated Press and The Marshall Project, a nonprofit news organization covering the criminal justice system, found that while people of color make up just under 40% of the U.S. population, they accounted for approximately 52% of all the “excess deaths" above normal through July. The report defined excess deaths as the number of people above the typical fatality number who died in the United States during the first seven months of 2020, based on figures from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The U.S. has more coronavirus cases and deaths than any other country, with 5.6 million infections and more than 175,000 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University.  Brazil has 3.5 million cases and India is approaching the 3...

    By Gayle Issa (Reuters) - Global coronavirus infections passed 13 million on Monday, according to a Reuters tally, marking another milestone in the spread of the disease which has killed more than half a million people in seven months. The first case was reported in China in early January and it took three months to reach one million cases. It has taken just five days to climb to 13 million cases from 12 million recorded on July 8.

The first death was reported on Jan. 10 in Wuhan, China, before infections and fatalities surged in Europe and then later in the United States. Many...

    Global cases of coronavirus passed 10 million on June 28. Over 499,000 people have been killed around the world. Many countries that have reopened, like Germany, are now seeing a new wave in cases after handling the first round of infections fairly effectively. Health officials warn that waves of the coronavirus will continue until a vaccine is created. The United States has the most confirmed cases and deaths worldwide, with over 2.5 million cases and over 125,000 deaths. Texas and Arizona reported large spikes in the virus counts in the past two weeks and now only two US states are reporting a decline in cases, Connecticut and Rhode Island.

    Reuters June 29, 2020 0 Comments The death toll from COVID-19 surpassed half a million people on Sunday, according to a Reuters tally, a grim milestone for the global pandemic that seems to be resurgent in some countries even as other regions are still grappling with the first wave.
