About this data

Description

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a new virus.

The disease causes respiratory illness (like the flu) with symptoms such as a cough, fever, and in more severe cases, difficulty breathing. You can protect yourself by washing your hands frequently, avoiding touching your face, and avoiding close contact (1 meter or 3 feet) with people who are unwell.

HOW IT SPREADS

Coronavirus disease spreads primarily through contact with an infected person when they cough or sneeze. It also spreads when a person touches a surface or object that has the virus on it, then touches their eyes, nose, or mouth.

Important developments in the coronavirus pandemic

Presented by Slack
Friday, April 10, 2020 

By Avi Selk   Email

The latest

The economy is deteriorating “with alarming speed,” Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome H. Powell said Thursday, as nationwide quarantines have caused more than 17 million people to file jobless claims and some economists believe we are in a depressionWe report that “the nation has not experienced this magnitude of layoffs and economic contraction since the Great Depression, many experts say, and recovery is unlikely to be swift.”

The collapse is manifesting itself in eye-popping financial reports from states and cities: Illinois owes $8.3 billion in unpaid bills. New York could lose billions in tax revenue. Pennsylvania has stopped paying 9,000 quarantined state employees. Find further details on shortages in other parts of the country, as well as on the split in Congress over what to do about it.

Worried about the economy’s effect on his reelection prospects, President Trump is pushing to send Americans back to work before many health experts believe is safe. He has publicly suggested the worst of the outbreak will soon be over, and has privately asked aides for a strategy to resume business activity by May 1. Read about the White House push to reopen the country.

Lifting quarantines just as they are showing signs of reducing infections would lead to disaster, experts warn, because the United States still lacks the testing capabilities needed to identify and contain new outbreaks. It’s also unclear how Trump would force governors to relax stay-at-home orders in their states.

Ohio is emerging as a model example of how to manage the virus: identify it early, plan for the worst and hope for the best. Gov. Mike DeWine (R) shut down a major convention in early March, before the state had a single confirmed infection, and the Cleveland Clinic began planning to add hundreds of new hospital beds even earlier. That head start appears to be paying off, with Ohio reporting dramatically lower infection and death rates than similarly sized states such as Michigan, Pennsylvania and Illinois. More on its aggressive strategy here. Then check out a video from the state’s Department of Health that has gone viral as a crystal-clear visualization of how social distancing is meant to fight the virus’s spread.

Your questions, answered

“The coronavirus started in bats, traveled around the world in people and has also infected felines. Could the corona end up infecting and spreading in our own bat population?”  — Susan Wetmore in Nebraska

Yes it could, and thank you for asking about the bats, which have been unfairly demonized for their role in the virus’s origin story.

The novel coronavirus is a species-hopper. Scientists believe it first incubated inside horseshoe bats in China — which have amazing immune systems that makes them unwitting hosts for many pathogens — and mutated to spread to humans last year.

Since then, the virus has infected at least 1.5 million people, but also some dogs, cats — even a tiger at the Bronx Zoo.

Now the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is worried the coronavirus could spread to North American bats such as the vesper bat, which last shared a common ancestor with the horseshoe bats of China approximately 50 million years ago. “They are about as different as bats get from one another,” Bruce Patterson, a curator of mammals at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago, told The Post.

The chance is fairly low of the virus going full circle — from bats to people then back into bats on the other side of the planet. But, as The Post reports, it would be bad for bats and non-bats alike if it happened.

The North American bat population is already being decimated by an unrelated fungal disease, and their long-distance flight patterns could spread the coronavirus over a huge area if they became incubators.

There could even be a spill-back of [the novel coronavirus] from bats back into humans … which would make eradication of [the virus] unlikely,” U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service veterinarian Samantha Gibbs wrote in a notice to researchers, asking them to suspend all bat fieldwork, lest an infected scientist sicken a bat. Read the whole story for more.

Saturday, April 11, 2020 The latest

The United States has more confirmed covid-19 deaths than any other nationwith nearly 19,000 fatal cases, including more than 2,000 reported on Friday alone. The country also accounts for nearly 30 percent of the world’s known infections: about 500,000 out of more than 1.7 million, although all these figures are probably too low due to a general scarcity of coronavirus testing and suspect reports from such countries as China.

U.S. governors have asked Congress for $500 billion in rescue funds, as many states face massive budget shortfalls after paying for the public health responses at the outbreak’s front lines. The economic crisis has also pushed the Postal Service to the brink of collapse, we report in a story about President Trump’s refusal to bail out the mail service.

The IRS has created an online tool to help people who don’t file taxes, such as many Social Security recipients, get their stimulus payments sooner. Payments of up to $1,200 a person will be sent to most people’s bank accounts starting next week, according to the tax agency. Find out more about how you can track your payment.

Another stimulus program to loan $349 billion to small businesses is faltering, The Post reports: “Banks, tasked with disbursing the money, have been confused about the rules, which has delayed lending. Entrepreneurs are reporting troubles applying. And even some who make it through the application process say they’re facing dilemmas about how to use the money.” Read more here.

Concerned that last month’s stimulus package was too generous with unemployment benefits, Labor Secretary Eugene Scalia has tweaked rules to make it more difficult for gig workers to get money and easier for businesses to avoid paying workers sick and family leave. The full report can be found here.

The pandemic has turbocharged a movement to eliminate SAT and ACT testing requirements for college applicants. Advocates have argued for years that the tests penalize freshmen who lack access to good teachers and prep courses. We report that a record number of schools have made the tests optional in the past few weeks — “actions that could presage a broad shift away from admissions testing in higher education.”

A psychologist explains why the pandemic is making you dream about organizing a duck boat tour at an eerily deserted shopping mall where all the stores are shrouded in wrapping paper, or, you know, whatever’s on your subconscious.

Sunday, April 12, 2020 The latest

The brain trust behind the federal government’s war on the coronavirus is “a bureaucratic nesting doll” of oft-competing task forces that have produced no clear plan to end the crisis, The Washington Post reports. There is the official task force led by Vice President Pence; the “shadow task force” led by presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner; the new “Opening Our Country Council”; and a splinter group of medical professionals. And then there is President Trump, who often overrides and undermines whatever decisions these groups manage to make. Read our story on the problems with this system, based on interviews with 22 White House insiders.

Your questions, answered

I have heard that pollution has greatly decreased recently as a result of reduced air and vehicular traffic. Is this so? Is the impact large enough to convince those who do not ‘believe’ in global warming to see the wisdom in reducing emissions? — Christine in California

We can’t predict how people will respond to the evidence, but yes, the global economic shutdown appears to be significantly reducing all the muck in the atmosphere.

The notoriously smoggy Los Angeles region has seen marked drops in nitrogen dioxide and fine particulate pollution since residents were ordered to stay at home  — “the longest stretch of ‘good’ air quality in March seen since at least 1995,” The Post writes.

Similar improvements have been mapped in the Mid-Atlantic, Northeast, Ohio Valley and Southwest — and across the world as far away as China. And carbon dioxide emissions that drive global warming have temporarily relented, somewhat, after many flights were grounded.

It’s still unclear what this data means for the long-term health of the planet, but if there is any silver lining to the global crisis, it’s been the chance for scientists to study a drastic reduction in pollution in real time. Read our story for more details and check out maps comparing March 2019 to March 2020.

The Washington Post: Coronavirus Updates

Important developments in the coronavirus pandemic.
Presented by Slack
Saturday, April 4, 2020

By Avi Selk   Email
The latest

This newsletter usually opens with the U.S. death toll, but today let’s spend a moment on the day toll: The early days of the spread of the coronavirus in which crucial opportunities to respond were squandered by systemic federal government failures, as chronicled in several new stories.

Seventy days elapsed from the first time the White House was formally notified of the outbreak in China on Jan. 3 until President Trump began to treat the virus “as a lethal force that had outflanked America’s defenses and was poised to kill tens of thousands of citizens,” according to Washington Post reporting based on 47 interviews with administration officials, public health experts, intelligence officers and others.

Twenty-one days in February were lost as the administration relied on a coronavirus test known to be flawed and prevented private labs from deploying better ones, blinding doctors and scientists as the virus spread across the country. Read our deep dive into scientists’ alarm and exasperation during that period.

Eighteen months ago — long before the outbreak — “the Trump administration received detailed plans for a new machine designed to churn out millions of protective respirator masks at high speed during a pandemic,” we report in another story. It was never built, and the U.S. government is now so desperate for masks it has asked 3M to stop sending them to Canada and other countries, prompting Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to warn the United States would be “hurting itself as much as Canada” because essential goods and services flow both ways.

Eleven days from now, the country will need 32,000 ventilators, far more than are in the government stockpile, according to an estimate by the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation. Because U.S. officials played down the virus for so long, Ford and General Motors only recently overhauled their factories to make the machines, and the bulk of their production won’t come on line until May. Read more here.

These cumulative problems mean “the United States will likely go down as the country that was supposedly best prepared to fight a pandemic but ended up catastrophically overmatched by the novel coronavirus, sustaining heavier casualties than any other nation,” we write in our story on the 70 lost days.

Other numbers: The U.S. has suffered more than 7,800 deaths and more than 290,000 confirmed infections from the virus. The jobless rate jumped to 4.4 percent in March, its sharpest one-month rise since 1975. Millions of Americans have been laid off or furloughed, more than 60,000 stores have shuttered, and analysts say many of them will never open again. A week after Trump signed a $2.2 trillion stimulus bill, key Democrats are already talking about another one.

And new signs of dysfunction: After a behind-the-scenes debate between officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and White House officials, Trump unenthusiastically announced the agency’s recommendation that Americans start wearing face coverings in public. Even as he shared the guidance, Trump said he would not follow it himself. Read more about that here.

The latest

“This is going to be the hardest and saddest week of most Americans’ lives, Surgeon General Jerome M. Adams said on Fox News today, as hospitals in the New York region and other high-infection areas brace for an expected surge in patients and deaths. “This is going to be our Pearl Harbor moment, our 9/11 moment, only it’s not going to be localized. It’s going to be happening all over the country.”

Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards (D) said his state could run out of ventilators as soon as Thursday, and ICU beds two days later. Some other states are projecting the crisis to peak in late April or May.

We sent reporters to the front lines: two rarely-seen treatment centers in New York, which already accounts for almost half the nation’s 9,000-plus coronavirus deaths. Read what it’s like inside Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, where 80 percent of patients have the virus, visitors are banned and an ICU nurse sings to the dying, though most can no longer hear her.

Then read about the surreal scene in Manhattan, where a 2.1 million-square-foot convention center has been turned into a militarized hospital: “Here, if someone ‘pops hot,’ as one soldier said, they’ll be descended upon by medics and rushed to an isolation tent.”

President Trump said 1,000 military doctors and nurses will deploy to New York City, and urged states to share any spare ventilators with others amid a national shortage. Oregon has pledged to donate most of its reserve supply of ventilators to New York — though those 140 machines will still leave the nation’s coronavirus epicenter far short of what state officials say are needed.

A Post analysis of more than 3,600 deaths in 13 states found evidence of a strange pattern that doctors have been reporting anecdotally: The virus appears to be killing significantly more men than women, for reasons no one can explain. The U.S. death toll is almost certainly being undercounted due to a shortage of tests, federal health officials acknowledge. Read about what that means here.

We have another insider piece, in the form of a column by David Ignatius, on the unusual ouster of Navy Capt. Brett Crozier, who was removed from command of a virus-stricken aircraft carrier in Guam after he wrote a plea for help to his superiors that leaked to the media. “Breaking news: Trump wants him fired,” Acting Navy secretary Thomas Modly reportedly told a colleague the day before he personally removed Crozier from the ship.

Mental health check: It’s not easy for any of us to contend with all the grim news while we watch everything that was familiar about our daily lives fade away. It can actually be dangerous, if we fail to recognize signs of serious maladies amid the chaos. We talked with mental health professionals about how you can take an honest look at yourself and determine what type of help you might need. Please read it, and be safe.

An Almost Comically Diverse Parade of Wildlife Crosses a Log Bridge in Pennsylvania

MARCH 3, 2020  GRACE EBERT

A log in Pennsylvania has gotten a lot of foot—and talon and paw—traffic during the last year. In trail camera footage captured by photographer Robert Bush Sr., local wildlife is shown crossing the downed tree throughout 2018 and 2019. A black bear frequents the location, in addition to grouse, bobcats, deer, squirrels, and beavers, which all are caught scurrying over the log or wading through the water. Despite their regular visits, though, none of the species seem to run into each other. For more clips of the animals’ travel routines, head to Bush’s Facebook and YouTube pages. (via Laughing Squid)

Basic protective measures against the new coronavirus

Stay aware of the latest information on the COVID-19 outbreak, available on the WHO website and through your national and local public health authority. COVID-19 is still affecting mostly people in China with some outbreaks in other countries. Most people who become infected experience mild illness and recover, but it can be more severe for others. Take care of your health and protect others by doing the following:

Wash your hands frequently

Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water.

Why? Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub kills viruses that may be on your hands.

Maintain social distancing

Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.

Why? When someone coughs or sneezes they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the droplets, including the COVID-19 virus if the person coughing has the disease.

Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth

Why? Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick.

Practice respiratory hygiene

Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately.

Why? Droplets spread virus. By following good respiratory hygiene you protect the people around you from viruses such as cold, flu and COVID-19.

If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early

Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance. Follow the directions of your local health authority.

Why? National and local authorities will have the most up to date information on the situation in your area. Calling in advance will allow your health care provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility. This will also protect you and help prevent spread of viruses and other infections.

Stay informed and follow advice given by your healthcare provider

Stay informed on the latest developments about COVID-19. Follow advice given by your healthcare provider, your national and local public health authority or your employer on how to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.

Why? National and local authorities will have the most up to date information on whether COVID-19 is spreading in your area. They are best placed to advise on what people in your area should be doing to protect themselves.

Protection measures for persons who are in or have recently visited (past 14 days) areas where COVID-19 is spreading

  • Follow the guidance outlined above.
  • Stay at home if you begin to feel unwell, even with mild symptoms such as headache and slight runny nose, until you recover. Why? Avoiding contact with others and visits to medical facilities will allow these facilities to operate more effectively and help protect you and others from possible COVID-19 and other viruses.
  • If you develop fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical advice promptly as this may be due to a respiratory infection or other serious condition. Call in advance and tell your provider of any recent travel or contact with travelers. Why? Calling in advance will allow your health care provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility. This will also help to prevent possible spread of COVID-19 and other viruses.
