The disease caused by the new coronavirus has killed at least 1,581 people in the United States since Feb. 29, when a 58-year-old man near Seattle became the first announced U.S. death.

The death toll from covid-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, began to rise steadily in early March, then more sharply as the disease spread to every state and most U.S. territories. The virus has killed people in nearly every state.

[Mapping the spread of the coronavirus worldwide]

Because testing was slow to begin in the United States, health officials agree that the number of confirmed cases is much lower than the actual number of people who have the disease, and even the count of deaths is probably low because of differences in reporting by overwhelmed local jurisdictions.

Hotspots have erupted in a few places with large outbreaks, none more dire than in New York, where at least 44,876 cases have been confirmed and at least 527 have died since March 14, when Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo (D) announced the death of an 82-year-old woman.

On Thursday, calls to 911 in New York City exceeded the number that occurred on Sept. 11, 2001.

But New York is far from the only area struggling to contain the disease and treat its victims.

Washington, where the first known U.S. outbreak began in early February, has had a high number of deaths among older people, particularly in the Seattle area. The disease took root early in several King County nursing homes and facilities that care for older, sicker people.

Most deaths worldwide have occurred among people older than 50 and those with underlying health problems, as they are often most vulnerable to respiratory disease.

Hard-hit Louisiana is facing a shortage of ventilators and protective equipment for health-care workers, according to Gov. John Bel Edwards (D). A breakout in New Orleans may have been fueled by the month-long Carnival celebration that drew more than a million people to the city in February and culminated in a raucous — and crowded — Mardi Gras.

[Rural areas may be most vulnerable to coronavirus]

California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) was the first to issue a statewide stay-at-home order on March 19 in an attempt to contain the spread of the disease that had already infiltrated the San Francisco Bay area and greater Los Angeles. The next day, governors in New York and Illinois issued similar orders, and others soon followed.

Wayne County, Mich., which includes Detroit, has a high rate of infections per capita thanks in part, health officials told the Detroit Free Press, to economic disparities. People in areas of concentrated poverty tend to have higher rates of diabetes, heart disease and obesity.

The epicenter of the covid-19 pandemic has moved from China, where it began late last year, to Europe and the United States. The World Health Organization declared covid-19 a pandemic on March 11 as the coronavirus that causes it infiltrated countries all over the world.

The disease, which can trigger severe respiratory symptoms, has been reported on every continent except Antarctica and in more than 170 countries. Some countries are confirming thousand of new cases each day, including the United States, where testing was slow to begin.

Coronaviruses range from some common cold viruses to those that cause much more serious diseases, including severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS). Some strains spread more efficiently than others; the virus that causes covid-19 seems to spread easily from person to person, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

COVID-19 | Corona Virus: Epidemiology, Pathophysiology, Diagnostics

Premiered Mar 16, 2020   Ninja Nerd Science

Ninja Nerds, What is Corona virus? What is COVID-19? Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) caused by SARS-COV2 is a new strain that was discovered in 2019 and has not been previously identified in humans. Coronaviruses are zoonotic, meaning they are transmitted between animals and people.  Detailed investigations found that SARS-CoV was transmitted from civet cats to humans and MERS-CoV from camels to humans. Several known coronaviruses are circulating in animals that have not yet infected humans. It is believed that COVID-19 was transmitted from pangolin to humans (current theory). Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death (WHO, 2020). Ninja Nerd Lectures has compiled the most up to date and recent data on COVID-19 as of March 15, 2020. Please follow along with this lecture to understand the origin and zoonosis of COVID-19, the routes of transmission, epidemiology (current as of 3/15/2020), pathophysiology, and diagnostic tests used to identify COVID-19. As new information and research is published we will continue to provide updates on COVID-19 and ensure all of our viewers are kept up to date on the most recent data.

Herald Square Park New York City, New York, Spring 2014

Herald Square Park, New York City, New York In Spring 2014 I am sitting in my art gallery and work room with comfort. It is nice and warm inside the house but outside at this time in late December the weather is cold and I see no flowers and green trees. It made me think of spring time. John and I went to New York City. We stopped at the park between 33rd and 35th Street. The weather was just right with bright sunshine. People enjoyed sitting on the chairs with tables for putting drinks or other items. John enjoyed the sun in a chair. As a flowers lover I gravitated to the bed of beautiful pink and white tulips, daffodils and other spring flowers. People young and old were enjoying spending time in the park. This small Park can give so much pleasure to humans. In general people love nature. Seeing the tall trees and the flowers bloom makes people happy. Thanks to New York City for creating this little oasis named Herald Square Park. For more pictures and information please visit the following link:
