As of today, we reached 9,905,748 cases of COVID19 worldwide. 496,868 deaths.
Which means that tomorrow we will reach 10 million cases and half a million deaths.

The US is seeing increases in new confirmed cases in every US state in the south and the west and creeping into the Midwest,. Iowa is now included in that list, as well as Wisconsin. Texas and Florida have rolled back of some of the reopening of public accommodations especially the serving of alcoholic beverages. Iíve been feeling things have been proceeding too quickly, and not as thought out as they should have been. The issue has always been sufficient testing and sensible social distancing and the use of masks outside homes at all times.

The age of those testing positive is skewing down in Ohio.  This and the southwest corner of the state (Cincinnati area) was the focus on the Thursday update with an expert from Cincinnati discussing it.  Median age for Ohio is now down to 47 as of 6/27.  But deaths, hospitalizations and ICU admissions are still holding steady which makes sense if the largest number of positives are the younger, asymptomatic individuals.

Ohio also had its largest number of tests run on 6/26... over 23,000.  I would guess that is because of all the pop up testing they are now doing in the hot spot of southwest Ohio.

If today's positives are at the same level as today, Ohio will pass 50,000 positive cases on tomorrow's update.

But even with the increase in cases these last few days, Ohio is moving down on my population percentage stats!  Sitting at 37th out of 52 and that is for the state with the 7th largest population in the country.  #1 and #2 most populous states (California/Texas) are sitting in 32 and 33. Even though their cases are going up, because of their population, the percentage doesn't move that much.  Florida is at #26.  Some states with small populations have moved up with their increase in cases (Iowa is now 13th, Nebraska is 12th and Arizona has moved to 11th).

The CBS news graphic which Iíve relied on to described on to describe the state now showing an increase in cases, has added Michigan and Indiana in the last day. And in Michigan a unspecified number of the new cases have been tied to one specific bar.

The Michigan bar is in a college town that just happens to be a suburb of the state capitol.

From what I'm seeing there was a period of time (June 12-20) when the people were exposed. Last article I read stated that 12 of the cases had contact with people who were in the bar but that they themselves did not visit it.  This article states the number is now at 107 cases. 95 actually were at the bar during the infection period.  The age range of the cases is 16 to 28 with a median age of 21.  All are advised to self-quarantine.  28 of the cases are asymptomatic.

I also read today that New York has expanded its list of states that visitors have to quarantine for 14 days if entering New York. New Jersey and Connecticut are expected to do the same.  There are now 16 states on the list... 10 from the south east. 5 from the west coast (CA, NV, UT, AZ and WA) and Iowa.

Ohio had another large increase today but even more scary is the fact that hospitalizations and ICU admissions increased dramatically. Deaths also increased by a large amount.

The preliminary report about a mutated form of the novel coronavirus that was supplantng and replacing the original strain has now been confirmed.
It is far more infectious (3 to 9 times so, spreads faster, but it is no more deadly than the original strain.https://www.cnn.com/2020/07/02/health/coronavirus-mutation-spread-study/index.html

This is a startling stat:
Canada has recorded a total of 104,772 COVID-19 cases since the beginning of January.
The United States has recorded 101,707 COVID-19 cases in the last two days.

Sobering yes but not to put down those numbers but look at the populations of the 2 countries.  Makes total sense that the USA has way more cases.

A comment made by a friend from Canada back when the USA took over the #1 spot on the JH Map of cases in the world is what led me to start tracking USA populations and cases by percentage. My comment to her was just what I said here... compare the populations of the countries you are comparing.

IMO

Then carry that to individual states and provinces.

I (literally) just saw todayís numbers for Iowa, and thereís a definite trend towards more cases in the state. A significant spike.is being seen in Polk County, where the state capital is located, and the increase in cases is being led by younger people. Thereís an issue with face masks, since those are only being recommended and with social distancing, especially in entertainment districts.

I fear what the numbers will look like in a couple of weeks after this long, hot, and humid holiday weekend.

Panic buying has started again. If you are sick, you stay at home and you don't leave your house until you are better. How hard can that be for my fellow braindead & dumb Victorians?  :groan:

Never knew coronavirus made you sh*t yourself to death! :res:  :groan:

The bubonic plague is historically known as The Black Death in medieval European history, reputedly killed half of European populations or more until it ran its course.

Jair Bolsonaro seems to have tested positive for COVID19.
This might just be an invention to magically "cure" himself with hydroxychloroquine which he blindly defends even though there is no certainty of effectiveness.

Or if he really is, let's see how he deals with it. He said "it's just a minor flu..."

Hi oval, yes from 11:59pm tomorrow until at least August 19, Metropolitan Melbourne is back in Stage Three lockdown! :)

The Left-Wing Socialist Victorian Government has the audacity to blame their failures in the hotel quarantine system on peopleís complacency with this pandemic. My anger at the moment is indescribable.  :groan:

I don't see the need to play the blame game. Left-or-right there is enough blame on both sides.

Not in Melbourne, the state of Victoria has already closed the border with New South Wales less than 24 hours ago.

My prediction seems about right. He made a propaganda of himself taking hydroxychloroquine and saying he's been feeling better already.
And of course i'm not going to believe in that.

Victoria records 288 new cases on Friday, for a state total of 3,397 cases

Soon it will surpass New South Wales as Victoria will become the worst affected COVID-19 area in Australia. Queensland has opened its borders but Victorian residents are banned to visit and they will be turned away.

Victoria has now overtook New South Wales as the worst affected COVID-19 area in Australia as cases have risen in the past 3 weeks.
