The new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirms the first case of covid in New York State from Europe and other states - NBC New York
A new report from the Centers for Disease Control and prevention confirms that the first case of coronavirus in other studies, in New York, came from Europe and other parts of the United States.
The airport control implemented on February 2 and the ban on foreigners from China, as well as the restrictions on passengers from Europe implemented on March 13, have not prevented or slowed down the spread of sars-cov-2, which is the virus leading to covid-19, as it has been reported on Thursday in New York.
Using data from six new york city emergency departments (Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, and Bronx) from March 1 to 20, the New York Department of health and mental health found that 36 of 544 people were sars-cov-2 HIV positive, and the samples looked like those circulating in Europe.
Five of the six emergency departments were selected because they were used by Chinese speaking patients living in higher zip codes, the report said. However, none of the samples collected were directly related to the sequence of Wuhan, China, where the outbreak originated.
"When [President trump] says" open, "it means open and full... Science should not get in the way of that," White House press secretary Kayleigh mcenany told reporters on Thursday
The report also found an increase in confirmed cases of cowid-19 among New Yorkers under the age of 18 in the weeks from March 8 to March 15. DOHMH estimates that the prevalence and undetected cases of the disease have increased. Covid-19 among young people raises the following questions: the role of children in community communication at the beginning of the pandemic, and the effectiveness of school suspension as a mitigation strategy.
This is due to limited test availability, which remains a problem for most states more than four months after the first batch of covid-19 was notified.
State governor Andrew Cuomo called the report "damned" on Thursday, saying the travel ban on China and Europe was the first mistake the federal government made in failing to slow the spread of the report to the country.
"There will be a second failure, which is now fully foreseeable in the rest of the country," Cuomo told MSNBC
The city said the results of the new quick test could be ready in as little as 15 minutes, and acknowledged that it took longer than other tests to get accurate results. Andrew SIFF of NBC New York.
"We have yet to implement the operation. Unless we are very lucky, we will see the infection return to New York and infect New York again. It's not just the first failure that causes the virus to spread. This is the second failure, and four months later, we are still talking about eight days to get test results, "he continued.
DOHMH agrees that limited testing results in many undetected cases of covid-19, but this is also due to strict testing standards. At the beginning of the pandemic, only New Yorkers with coronavirus symptoms at the time were allowed to be examined, and they needed permission from a doctor.
Now, all New Yorkers can take the test. But while Cuomo announced on Thursday that they could get the results in a day, some said they had waited more than a week to get them.
One of the largest laboratory tests, Quest Diagnostics, said that demand growth in other States has also increased the turnaround time of test results.
"We attribute this demand to the continued rapid spread of covid-19 infection across the country, particularly in the south, southwest and west of the country," the laboratory said in a press release released on Wednesday
Coronavirus infections are increasing in 40 states, with daily deaths more than 20% higher than last week. After many of Florida's voyages, nearly 14000 new cases of the virus were reported in Florida, setting a one-day record of 156 deaths reported on Thursday, breaking the previous record of 132 reported on Tuesday.
