Fallon | AFP | Getty Images Covid case counts in the U.S. are showing signs of easing off their latest highs but remain elevated as the country heads into a fall season of back-to-school and colder weather. The seven-day average of daily Covid cases is about 144,300 as of September 12, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. That figure is down 12% over the past week and 14% from the most recent peak in case counts on September 1, when the country was reporting an average of roughly 167,600 cases per day.  "This is good news," said Dr. Arturo Casadevall, the Chair of Molecular Microbiology and Immunology at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. "It could represent that we have reached a peak and we are now on the way down." The U.S. has...

    The number of COVID-19 cases has started to surge in the United States after months of decline, with the number of new cases per day doubling over the past three weeks. Doctors and public health officials have said that the surge, in 43 out of the country's 50 states, comes amid a rise in the Delta variant of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and stagnating vaccination numbers. Health experts warn that the worrying increase in cases is linked to the Indian 'Delta' variant, which accounts for as many 97 percent of infections in some states.  Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data updated last week shows that the Delta variant, also known as B.1.617.2, makes up 51.7 percent of all new infections - making it the dominant form of the virus in the United States. The Delta variant has been detected in all 50 states and accounts for more than 80 percent of new infections in Midwestern states such as Iowa, Kansas and Missouri, where vaccination rates are lagging. In the United States, 59 percent of adults are fully vaccinated while 68...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — With new COVID-19 cases on the rise again in Chicago, Mayor Lori Lightfoot warned on Monday that the city might have to tighten coronavirus restrictions if the troubling uptick continues. Even as more people are getting vaccinated at places like the United Center, COVID-19 is still here, and the upward trend in cases the past couple weeks is proof of that.

It is still killing people in our city every single day. So we have got to remain diligent,” Lightfoot said Monday as the city expanded vaccine eligibility to adults with underlying health conditions and all essential workers. Lightfoot said the recent uptick is driven by adults ages 18 to 39 years old on the North and Northwest Sides. “We’ve also seen a number of outbreaks involving younger people; among sports teams and as a result of bar crawls,” she said. The mayor said the activities and locations themselves aren’t the problem, it’s the...

The Illinois Department of Public Health reported 2,190 new confirmed and probable coronavirus cases on Thursday, as well as 35 new deaths.

JB  Pritzker expressed concern about the recent uptick in cases across Illinois, and said public health officials will be monitoring the data closely to determine whether the recent increase is the result of new COVID variants that spread more easily, or simply a “a blip in the data.” “There is more activity going on, and I think people...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — Illinois is seeing a rise in new COVID-19 cases over the past week, even as Gov. JB Pritzker said yesterday that “rapidly we’re moving toward the next phase” of the state’s reopening plan.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Public health officials reported 5,069 new confirmed and probable cases of COVID-19 in Illinois on Monday, along with 79 additional deaths, as the state’s infection rate has been climbing steadily for the past week. Since the start of the pandemic, the Illinois Department of Public Health has reported a total of 984,880 coronavirus cases, including 16,834 deaths. The statewide seven-day average case positivity rate now stands at 8.6%, and has been climbing gradually for the past week, after steadily dropping from mid-November through mid-December. During the second surge of the virus this fall, the state’s case positivity rate peaked at 13.2%, and fell as low as 6.8% on the two days after Christmas. It’s unclear, however, if the climbing positivity rate is a sign of a post-holiday surge in cases, or a factor of decreased testing during the holidays. IDPH reported an average of 89,906 tests per day in the seven days leading up to Christmas, but the state has averaged only 70,530 tests per day over the past week. As of Sunday night, 3,948 coronavirus patients...

    Oregon's Governor has issued the strictest lockdown measures in America as the state experiences a surge in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations.  During a press conference on Friday, Gov. Kate Brown ordered a two-week statewide 'freeze' on businesses and gatherings - the harshest restrictions since the stay-at-home order imposed on Oregonians at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic back in March.  The freeze will start next Wednesday, November 18 and run through December 2. In Portland, which is experiencing the largest increase in cases, the freeze will be extended to four weeks.  As part of the order, all gyms will be closed, while bars and restaurants will be prohibited from providing dine-in service.  Additionally, there will be restrictions on the number of people allowed inside grocery stores and pharmacies at any one time, while all indoor and outdoor social gatherings will be limited to six people.   There will be no exemptions on social gatherings for Thanksgiving.  Oregon's Governor Katie Brown has issued the strictest lockdown measures in America as the state experiences a surge in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations ...

    Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Trader Joe's has set the bar for safety among grocery retailers in Colorado — but even the best practices can't guarantee that the novel coronavirus won't gain admittance. According to the latest report from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, the chain's Colorado Springs branch has suffered an outbreak. It's one in a wave of site-based infections that's set a new record for the third week in a row. The CDPHE considers an entity an outbreak after two or more COVID-19 cases among residents, staffers or other people connected to a specific location are confirmed within a fourteen-day period, or two or more cases of respiratory illness with an onset of symptoms within a fourteen-day period are paired with at least one additional COVID-19 diagnosis. The CDPHE's October 14 update lists 897 total outbreaks in the state so far: 274 active, 623 resolved. That's an increase of 64 over the October 7 total of 833, which was 63 outbreaks higher than September 30's 53. And the current number would be higher if not for...
    In the past week or so, four states — New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and New Mexico — have categorized Colorado as a high-risk location because of rising COVID-19 rates, and mandated that visitors from Colorado quarantine prior to moving freely within their borders. While some of the numbers that led to Colorado's recent undesirable status have started to moderate, the latest figures from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment show that current hospitalizations have risen to a level not seen for months. Here are the COVID-19 stats in major categories as updated by the CDPHE at 4 p.m. October 4, juxtaposed with those from one week earlier. 73,076 cases (up 3,367 from September 27) 7,673 hospitalizations (up 150 from September 27) 64 counties (unchanged) 2,068 deaths among cases (up 27 from September 27) 1,968 deaths due to COVID-19 (up 28 from September 27) 798 outbreaks (up 62 from September 27) Related Stories Polis: White House COVID-19 Safety Protocols Weren't Good Enough Jared Polis's Mom on Trump Racism and New Hate Groups Film COVID-19: Greek House Sh*t Show...
    As cases and deaths from COVID-19 come in fewer numbers around California, some harder-hit counties are beginning to come close to the Bay Area. Statewide, there was little change in the seven-day average of new infections and fatalities reported each day, though both figures were lower than where they were two weeks ago and significantly below their respective peaks. The 3,274 new cases and 85 deaths reported by county health departments Thursday kept each seven-day average about even — just over 3,500 cases and just below 84 deaths per day over the past week, according to data compiled by this news organization. The 587 total fatalities reported over the past seven days were the fewest over any seven-day period since the one that ended July 8. While the Bay Area reported its most deaths of any seven-day period last week, virus deaths in Los Angeles County on Thursday were near their lowest point since the start of April. Due in large part to Alameda County, the Bay Area’s deadliest seven days came one week ago, when there were 149 deaths...
