    (CNN)It was a stern and startling warning from the White House's new Covid response coordinator: In the fall and winter, the US could potentially see 100 million new Covid-19 infections if Congress doesn't approve federal funding to fight the pandemic. That warning from Dr. Ashish Jha, who said the projection was based on a range of internal and external models, jolted some public health experts and even came a surprise to some top Biden administration officials, with sources telling CNN that the grim forecast -- and details of where exactly that 100 million number had been derived from -- was not discussed with some key officials intimately involved in the administration's work to fight Covid before Jha's TV interview over the weekend.As of Thursday morning, the White House had not yet released the underlying data that it says supports its projection. A senior administration official had told CNN on Monday that the 100 million infection number is a moderate one that falls somewhere in the middle of more conservative and extreme projections and is based on an underlying assumption of...
    LOS ANGELES (CNS) -- At the current pace of COVID-19 vaccinations, it will take until late August to reach the target goal of getting 80% of Los Angeles County residents age 16 and older at least partially vaccinated, roughly one month later than previously thought, according to a new projection."We're currently administering about 100,000 vaccinations to L.A. County residents each week, and have about 1.1 million more first doses to go before 80% of all L.A. County residents 16 and older have received at least one vaccine,'' County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said in a virtual media briefing on Wednesday."If we keep vaccinating at the same rate we've been going for the past two weeks, it will take us until late August to reach this goal. And obviously we would like for this to happen sooner, so we're hoping with easier access and more opportunities to get questions answered about vaccine safety, we can increase the number of doses we're administering each week.''The 80% vaccination rate has been generally cited as the level desired to reach so-called "herd immunity''...
    SACRAMENTO (AP) — California Gov. Gavin Newsom has from the start said his coronavirus policy decisions would be driven by data shared with the public to provide maximum transparency. But with the state starting to emerge from its worst surge, his administration won’t disclose key information that will help determine when his latest stay-at-home order is lifted. State health officials said they rely on a very complex set of measurements that would confuse and potentially mislead the public if they were made public. Dr. Lee Riley, chairman of the University of California, Berkeley School of Public Health infectious disease division, disagreed. “There is more uncertainty created by NOT releasing the data that only the state has access to,” he said in an email. Its release would allow outside experts to assess its value for projecting trends and the resulting decisions on lifting restrictions, he wrote. Newsom, a Democrat, imposed the nation’s first statewide shutdown in March. His administration developed reopening plans that included benchmarks for virus data such as per capita infection rates that counties needed to meet to relax...

Coronavirus death toll projections for the U.S. from both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), show an alarming rise by the end of 2020 and even into the spring of 2021. In December, the U.S. hit the devastating milestone of more than 250,000 dead, which goes beyond the estimates NPR reported National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Anthony S. Fauci warning about in March. Many are hoping the coronavirus vaccines in development from Pfizer and Moderna will be able to reduce the death tolls, yet they are not expected to be widely available until February or March, according to what Fauci told USA Today’s California paper, The Desert Sun.New Projections Estimate the Death Toll Could Nearly Double by April 2021 I expect the US to be reporting over 2000 deaths per day in 3 weeks time.

    SAN ANTONIO – Editor’s Note: Watch the entire briefing in the video player above. Newsletter recipients can click here to access the video. San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg and Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff updated the community about the local response to COVID-19 in their daily briefing Wednesday night. Here are a few of the highlights: Nirenberg reported 33,555 total COVID-19 cases and 283 total deaths in Bexar County, as of Wednesday, an increase of 1,688 new cases. Nine new deaths were reported today. The mayor said the city averaged 1,206 new cases per day for the past five days. Nirenberg said one of the newly reported deaths was from a nursing home, and three of them were related to people under 40 years old. City officials also reported that 1,133 patients are hospitalized, 429 are in the intensive care unit and 287 are on ventilators. There are 12% of staffed beds available and 51% of ventilators available. Nirenberg said the city released a new model showing hospitalization projections for the next two weeks. He said...
    Jane Barlow – WPA Pool/Getty Images A projection from the University of Washington expects the numbers of deaths from Covid-19 to rise to 224,000 by November 1. Its expected deaths are up 16,000 from its last forecast as the United States has seen 60,000 new daily cases in four of the last five days. The figures from Tuesday mirror rising projections from the University of Massachusetts Amherst and other independent models. The US has 136,000 deaths from coronavirus as of July 15, which means the county is expected to add another 90,000 deaths in the next 109 days, per new projections. The University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation said the country could reduce that number by 40,000 if all Americans wore masks when in contact with other people. “Use of masks is up, but not as high as it should be,” Washington’s IHME said in a statement. “If 95 percent of Americans wore masks each time they left their homes, infection rates would drop, hospitalizations would drop.” CDC Director Robert Redfield has also warned about a difficult fall amid...
    SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- San Francisco Mayor London Breed and Director of Public Health Dr. Grant Colfax shared a bleak look at the current state of coronavirus in San Francisco.RELATED: SF Mayor London Breed tests negative for COVID-19 after being exposed to virus at eventThe city leaders took a deep dive into San Francisco's COVID-19 data. The city has seen 4,950 confirmed coronavirus cases and 50 related deaths. Nearly 1,000 of those cases have been diagnosed in the past two weeks and the southeast part of the city has been hit especially hard.Right now, researchers believe that for every one person infected with COVID-19 in San Francisco, he or she spreads it to 1.25 people on average. That may not seem like a lot, but that rate of infection has the potential to land San Francisco in a scenario like New York saw in March and April."This is the slide that keeps me up at night," Dr. Colfax said as he presented the data. At the current rate of spread, the city is projected to see 830 hospitalizations by the...

     A new forecast projects 201,129 deaths due to COVID-19 in the United States through the beginning of October mainly due to reopening measures under way, the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington said on Monday. The IHME raised its estimate by 18 percent from 169,890 and said Florida would be among the hardest hit states, with an estimated 18,675 deaths, up 186 percent from a previous estimate of 6,559 on June 10. The institute raised its estimate for deaths in California by 72 percent to 15,155 from 8,812 and increased its outlook for Arizona by 56 percent to 7,415 fatalities from 4,762.
