Coronavirus updates: CDC adds 6 new possible symptoms of COVID-19

first_imgiStock/mrtom-ukBy: JON HAWORTH and MATT ZARRELL(NEW YORK) — A pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now killed over 203,000 people worldwide.More than 2.89 million people across the globe have been diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the new respiratory virus, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. The actual numbers are believed to be much higher due to testing shortages, many unreported cases and suspicions that some governments are hiding the scope of their nations’ outbreaks.Since the first cases were detected in China in December, the United States has become the worst-affected country, with more than 940,000 diagnosed cases and at least 54,001 deaths.Today’s biggest developments:US cases top 900,000Global deaths tops 200,000CDC adds six new symptoms of coronavirusUnemployment rate will be comparable to Great DepressionHere’s how the news is developing today. All times Eastern.10:30 a.m.: More ‘consistency’ in downward trend needed before reopening, NYC mayor saysNew York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said that while there are many indicators that the number of current coronavirus patients are on a downward trend, more “consistency” is needed before the city will begin to consider taking steps towards reopening.The mayor at his daily press conference on Sunday noted the percentage of people who have tested positive, the number admitted to hospitals and those in the ICU have all gone down or stayed flat in recent days but cautioned against restarting too soon.“We restart when we have evidence. Look, we see some states around the country to restart their economies. I’m worried for them. I’m worried for their people. Some seem to be paying attention to health care indicators more than others,” de Blasio explained. “Anybody, any state, any city that doesn’t pay attention to those factual health care indicators that evidence is endangering themselves and their people and the whole idea of having a restart to have an economy again, recover, it could all backfire because the disease reasserts.”The mayor added that there are a number of outstanding questions that his administration is working to address before the city can reopen.“How do you reopen a restaurant and still do it in a way that protects the customers and protects the people that work there? What kind of protection will people need? What kind of PPE’s will people need to wear in different parts of the city, a lot of different work they do to make sure they are safe. When will they need more? When will they need less? We’ve got to start filling in those blanks,” de Blasio said.De Blasio said the recovery must address the “structural racism” and disparities that have been exposed during the pandemic, announcing the city would create a “Fair Recovery Task Force” to help New Yorkers recover from the crisis.“Recovery means to me getting back not just to a point where life feels more normal but getting back to a point of strength, additionally addressing the underlying issues we still need to address in the city,” de Blasio said.9:45 a.m.: Unemployment rate will be comparable to Great Depression, Trump adviser saysKevin Hassett, President Donald Trump’s economic adviser, said the U.S. is going to see a jobless rate comparable to what happened during the Great Depression as it recovers from the novel coronavirus pandemic.Appearing on ABC’s This Week on Sunday, Hassett also measured up losses against the more recent Great Recession.“Around 2008, we lost 8.7 million jobs and the whole thing. Right now, we’re losing that many jobs about every 10 days,” he said. “And so … the economic lift for policymakers is an extraordinary one.”9:05 a.m.: Michigan governor defends stay-at-home ordersMichigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer disagreed Sunday that her stay-at-home orders were too aggressive in combatting the novel coronavirus pandemic in her state.“It was hitting (Michigan) incredibly hard and that’s why we have a unique solution, even though it was more aggressive than other states. We have started to really push down that curve and we’ve saved lives in the process,” the Democrat told ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos Sunday on ABC’s This Week.4:25 a.m.: 3 people arrested during ‘Freedom Rally’ protest at San Diego beachThree people were arrested Saturday during a “Freedom Rally” protest in Encinitas, according to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department.The three individuals were among a group of several dozen people that gathered at Moonlight Beach to protest the county’s beach closures and stay-at-home orders in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.The three people were cited for health order violations, said sheriff’s Lt. Amber Baggs. The maximum penalty of the health orders could be citation for a $1,000 fine or up to six months in jail, or both.Baggs also said deputies issued one traffic citation and seven parking citations during the protest.According to Baggs, there were 75-100 people at the “The Surf’s Up Shred the Tidal Wave of Tyranny” protest Saturday morning. The two-hour event was organized by Crista Anne Curtis, who led a similar protest last week.“Several protestors walked onto the beach and sat as deputies began speaking to them regarding the County Public Health Order,” said Baggs. “The people were given multiple opportunities to comply with the state and county orders. Three attendees refused and were arrested.”Another protest was planned for Sunday at the Pacific Beach lifeguard station at 700 Grand Ave. starting at 1 p.m.Dubbed “A Day of Liberty San Diego Freedom Rally,” the protest is being organized by Naomi Soria, according to social media posts announcing the rally. Soria organized last week’s downtown San Diego rally.2:49 a.m.: CDC updates list of coronavirus symptomsThe Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has added six new possible symptoms of the novel coronavirus.People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness. These symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus:• Fever• Cough• Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing• Chills• Repeated shaking with chills• Muscle pain• Headache• Sore throat• New loss of taste or smellIt had previously only noted fever, cough and shortness of breath as possible symptoms of COVID-19.1:17 a.m.: More than 100,000 people have recovered from COVID-19 in the United StatesAs of 8:30 p.m. ET, 100,104 people have recovered from COVID-19, according to the data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University.9:33 p.m.: Hawaii extends quarantine for travelersHawaii Gov.

(AP Photo/David Zalubowski)ExpandDENVER — By the end of four innings Sunday, the first two games in Colorado were beginning to seem like a fevered dream brought on by the altitude.The Dodgers held a 1-0 lead at that point after having scored just three times in a loss on Saturday. The humidor had finally kicked in.Then things returned to Coors Field’s brand of normalcy. Twelve runs were scored in the next two innings with the Dodgers getting the better of it. A six-run sixth inning lifted them to a 10-5 victory over the Colorado Rockies Sunday afternoon and prevented the Dodgers from losing consecutive series for the first time since April 8-14 (the Cardinals and Brewers).Instead, the Dodgers and Rockies split a four-game series that produced 65 runs and featured 15 home runs. By then, Maeda had tripped three triggers the Dodgers seem to use every time he starts. His pitch count was getting high (88) after giving up two singles to start the inning. He was about to face the Rockies lineup a third time with two left-handed batters, Charlie Blackmon and David Dahl, coming up.“I was ready to stay in. I was ready to fight through that second-and-third hole (after a wild pitch),” Maeda said through his interpreter. “The manager had a different idea.”It wasn’t a bad idea but it didn’t work out well.Saving Julio Urias for later, Roberts opted to go with Zac Rosscup, a lefty reliever who has been very tough on left-handed hitters at times throughout an itinerant career.He didn’t retire either of the lefties he faced. Blackmon beat out an infield single on a topped ground ball that barely made it past the pitcher’s mound, driving in one run. Dahl hit a three-run home run to give the Rockies a 4-3 lead.“Knowing we had Julio for three innings, I just thought the best chance to get Blackmon and Dahl who have had success against Kenta was to get Rosscup in there,” Roberts said. “It was a groundball that obviously Blackmon beat out and a Coors home run. It was a fly ball that I know the probability wasn’t high for it to get out of the ballpark.”An inning later, that bullpen choice didn’t matter so much.Seven consecutive Dodgers reached base on an assortment of hits (four singles and a double), walks (one) and a bases-loaded hit batter to drive in the tying run (Justin Turner). Pederson drove in two runs with his third single. Matt Beaty’s double drove in another. One run scored when the Rockies couldn’t turn a double play on Cody Bellinger and another on the sixth hit of the inning, a single by Max Muncy.With a lead more firmly in hand, Roberts turned to Urias for three scoreless innings in relief. He got Blackmon and Dahl in the seventh inning. Blackmon hit a ninth-inning homer off right-hander Yimi Garcia. Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start “For us to come out of here with a split and to lose no ground to those guys who gave it all they had is a good thing for us,” said Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, protective of his team’s double-digit lead in the National League West. “Definitely glad to get out of here and enjoy an off day tomorrow.”Dodgers starter Kenta Maeda kept the Rockies’ offense silent for four innings, allowing just one hit – a triple by Tony Wolters – and two walks in that time.But the Dodgers gave Maeda only a slim lead with one run off Rockies starter Chi Chi Gonzalez in the first four innings – and Maeda did that as well. He singled with one out in the third, went to third on a single by Joc Pederson and scored when Gonzalez dropped the return throw on a potential 3-6-1 double play.They added two runs in the top of the fifth to make it 3-0 – and again Maeda was in the middle of it. His sacrifice bunt scored one run and he reached first safely when Gonzalez throw hit him in the backside. The second of Pederson’s three singles in the game drove in the second run.“I think Kenta threw the baseball really well today,” Roberts said. “He’s had a lot of success with the slider (in Colorado). A lot of times, spin doesn’t really play here or isn’t as consistent. But even today, there’s something about this place that doesn’t scare him at all, which is great.

You could see by some of the swings those guys were taking off him they were surprised by the fastball — both sides of the plate, top of the zone.”That didn’t stop Roberts from pulling Maeda three batters into the fifth inning.Related Articleslast_img read more
