Almost half the US is reporting increased numbers of new Covid-19 cases as health experts warn of a potential coronavirus surge in the fall and winter.
As of Sunday, the number of new coronavirus cases has increased by at least 10% or more compared to the week before in 21 states, most of them in the West, according to a CNN analysis of data from Johns Hopkins University.
Cases are rising in Alabama, Alaska, Colorado, Idaho, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, South Carolina,
Los Angeles County saw a continued decline in the number of people with serious cases of COVID-19 this weekend, with fewer than 700 patients hospitalized on Sunday. There were three times as many COVID-19 hospitalizations during the summer surge.
The reduction in the most serious cases came as the county reported 815 new cases overall and 10 deaths for the day. These are declines from past highs, but the lower numbers may reflect a lag in weekend reporting, the county said.
There were 692 people hospitalized with COVID-19 on Sunday, compared with 1,100 in late August and more than 2,200 in mid-July.
Hospitalizations, like new cases and deaths, are considered a key indicator of how well counties are handling the spread of the coronavirus and how much demand the pandemic is putting on local healthcare
SAN DIEGO, CA – San Diego State University has reported 1,072 coronavirus cases in just over one month. The university reported 25 additional cases Sunday.
The new totals reported by Student Health Services reflect numbers as of 6 p.m. Saturday.
The news comes a day after Cal State Long Beach reported a potential spike in cases after five students living on campus tested positive. All student residents at CSULB were placed into quarantine Saturday and will all be tested to figure out how widespread the issue is.
Of the students living on campus, 385 have tested positive and students living off campus totaled 666 positive cases, health services said. A total of eight faculty or staff members have tested positive and 13 “visitors,” people who have had exposure with an SDSU-affiliated individual, have tested positive.
The number of confirmed cases was 1,030, with 42 probable cases.

MADISON, NJ—On the surface, Amy Peller could not have planned a worse time to start a business. After leaving a job at a large corporation, she decided to open a mobile dog grooming salon and planned to launch last spring.
“I resigned from a job at a consulting firm two years ago,” she explained, “to really seize an opportunity that mixed personal passion with an industry where I saw a big growth potential.”
Peller, a self-described planner, did extensive research and preparation. Things were going well and she was scheduled to launch her new business in April. As February wore on, though, she recognized that it was not the right time.
“I just didn’t feel like we knew enough about about covid,” she said, “to be safe for our clients, both human and canine.”
But Peller had a problem. She was scheduled to pick up a key piece of equipment
Placing an order at a deli counter while wearing a mask and standing 6 feet away can be difficult. Try teaching a class full of schoolchildren and connecting with students who are themselves wearing masks.
Teachers who in ordinary times rely on their voices to convey nuances of language and manage classroom behavior are tasked with not sounding like the trombone-produced “wah wah” of the Charlie Brown TV specials while protecting themselves and their students from the coronavirus.
To help themselves communicate with students, teachers have turned to masks with clear patches over their mouths, set up plexiglass bubbles inside classrooms so they can speak without masks, and in some cases turned to props to get across how they are feeling.

VIRGINIA — There are 941 new cases of the coronavirus in Virginia as of Friday, according to the Virginia Department of Health, up from the 902 new cases reported on Thursday. The Department of Health also reported 23 additional coronavirus-related deaths on Friday.
The cumulative total number of cases in Virginia is 144,433 and the cumulative total number of coronavirus-related deaths across the state is 3,3136. Hospitalizations have increased to 10,806, up from 10,769 reported on Thursday.
On Friday morning, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam and his wife, Pamela Northam, announced they have tested positive for the coronavirus after a member of the governor’s residence staff also tested positive. While the governor has reported experiencing no symptoms of COVID-19 — the disease caused by the virus — Pamela Northam has reported experiencing mild symptoms.
Northam and his wife received PCR nasal swab tests Wednesday and received positive results. Both will isolate

LAKE JACKSON, Texas – Environmental officials in Texas have lifted a warning for a final Houston-area community to stop using tap water because it might be tainted with a deadly brain-eating microbe, but with a warning that the water should be boiled before being consumed.
Earlier this month, 6-year-old Josh McIntyre died after contracting the microbe, naegleria fowleri.
The investigation into his death led to the detection of the brain-eating amoeba after heath officials conducted water sample tests, Lake Jackson City Manager Modesto Mundo said in a news release Saturday.
Three of 11 sample tests indicated preliminary positive results for the brain-eating microbe, with one sample coming from a hose
One of the most effective aspects of the Trump administration’s response to Covid-19 has been Operation Warp Speed, the effort to move a vaccine to market. It’s all the more puzzling, then, that the administration would interrupt this good work with a statement that it may try to weaken the long-established criteria for judging the safety and effectiveness of a vaccine.
“We’re trying to make sure that the guidance we give” is not “a inhibitor to getting things out fast,” White House chief of staff Mark Meadows said on
“Face the Nation” Sunday. But the criteria the administration is criticizing aren’t some unexpectedly higher bar for approval. The Food and Drug Administration has been sharing its guidance with drug makers, who have been using it to inform their development work.
Sept. 27 (UPI) — Experts are predicting a surge in COVID-19 cases in the fall and winter months as new cases rise while some areas continue to lift restrictions related to the pandemic.
The University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation’s model forecasts that daily deaths from the coronavirus could surge from 765 to 3,000 by late December.
The United States leads the world in cases and deaths, reporting 7,093,285 cases and 204,606 deaths, according to data gathered by John’s Hopkins University.
IHME Director Dr. Chris Murray said the model shows a “huge surge” beginning in October and accelerating through the end of the year, warning that the winter surge may have already begun in Europe.
“Cases are exploding there. So we know it’s coming and we expect it to hit the U.S. pretty soon,” he said.
Murray added that changes in behavior due to easing of coronavirus
