12:12 p .: The death toll in the state of New York reached 4,758In New York – the most severely affected state of the pandemic – the death toll has reached 4,758, Governor Andrew Cuomo said on Monday, although he said the death rate had been “effectively flat for two days.” New York has the highest death toll in the US so far. New Jersey has the second highest mortality rate with 917, Cuomo said. More than 130,000 people in the state of New York have been diagnosed with coronavirus. Cuomo said the total number of hospitalizations and ICU admissions fell, which “indicates the possibility of smoothing the curve.” “While these figures are” full of hope, “the governor added, what happens next” still depends on what we do. “If the state is a plateau, it is because of the social distance of work that it must continue. Also, the state health care system” is at maximum capacity today, “the governor said.” Staff cannot work harder. And staying at this level is problematic. ” “There is also a real danger of overconfidence. This is an enemy that we take for granted from day one and we have paid the price dearly,” Cuomo said. Schools and businesses that are not important will remain closed until April 29, Cuomo said.

Cuomo gave a lecture to people who had gathered in the New York City square and park this weekend and said he increased the maximum fine to $ 1000 for violating the social distance protocol. “Now is not the time to loose. That was a mistake, “said the governor.” If I can’t convince you to show discipline for yourself, “Cuomo said, then do it for others, like health workers who” risk their lives. “

9:48 am: Spain sees a decrease in infection rates in ‘almost all regions’New outbreaks of coronavirus in Spain appear to be slowing as the number of new infections drops in “almost all regions,” a health ministry official said. “The pandemic growth rate is declining in almost all regions,” Maria Jose Sierra, with the Spanish Health Ministry’s emergency committee, said at a virtual press conference Monday .ierra warned that it would take several days to “confirm this trend.” Data from Monday from the Spanish health ministry showed that 637 people died from COVID-19 in the last 24 hours – the lowest daily rate, based on percentage, since early March – bringing the national death rate to 13,055. The country also reported 4,273 new cases, bringing the national total to 135,032. Spain has the second highest national count of diagnosed COVID-19 cases in the world, behind the United States, according to a count kept by Johns Hopkins University .ierra said about 19,400 health workers in Spain had been infected with a new corona virus, accounting for nearly 15% of the total cases .

We are getting closer.

8:39 am: British Prime Minister says he was hospitalized for ‘routine tests’British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who was hospitalized on Sunday night after contracting a new corona virus, said he went for “some routine tests” because his symptoms persisted. “Last night, on the advice of my doctor, I went to the hospital for some routine tests because I was still experiencing coronavirus symptoms,” Johnson said on Monday via Twitter. “I am excited and staying in touch with my team, because we work together to fight this virus and keep everyone safe.” A spokesman for the prime minister’s office announced in a statement late Sunday that Johnson, 55, had a high fever and was hospitalized on the advice of his doctor, not in an emergency.

“This is a preventative measure,” the spokesman said, “when the prime minister continues to have persistent symptoms of the corona virus ten days after testing positive for the virus.”

Johnson will stay in touch with other British leaders while he awaits his test results, according to the spokesman.

7:18 am: This will be the ‘peak week’ for the US part, official warningAdmiral Brett Giroir, assistant secretary for health at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, warned Americans that this would be the “peak week” of new corona virus outbreaks for several states and cities. “For this part of the country, especially New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Detroit, this week will be the peak week,” Giroir told ABC Anchor News Head George Stephanopoulos in an interview Monday in Good Morning America. “This will be the highlight of hospitalization, the peak of the ICU week and, unfortunately, the week of peak death,” he added. “But that doesn’t mean we are during this week. There are other parts of the country that will peak a little later, like New Orleans. So we have to be very, very serious about what happens this week, next week, the following weeks – doing physical distance, wearing masks, that’s how we will defeat this virus. “Giroir, a doctor and key member of the White House coronavirus task force, said the country had” come a long way “in increasing COVID-19 testing capacity.” Until yesterday we had conducted at least 1.67 million tests, and we didn’t even get information of all the tests that come from the laboratory. These are those in hospitals that don’t really report through the system, “he said.” We will do about one million tests this week, and that’s pretty much the test for people who really really need it in the priority group – those who are hospitalized, health care workers, seniors. “Giroir said they were also working to increase the scale of serological tests, better known as antibody tests, which only required a drop of blood and sniffing out virus antibodies. The test could not detect whether someone currently has a virus, but can find out if they already have it or have been exposed to it in the past because their immune system has developed antibodies to fight it. “That is very important when we think about reopening the country and the economy,” Giroir said, “because if you have a virus and you have an immune response to it, you are most likely immune and safe from the virus.” Giroir said he was “very optimistic” that the country would soon have “tens of millions” of serological tests, potentially in May. “There are some that are going through the FDA now,” he added.

6:42 am: Emergencies are seen in JapanJapanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said he intended to declare a state of emergency related to the country’s new coronavirus outbreak amid a recent surge of infection. During Monday’s press conference, Abe said he made the final arrangements for the declaration and would announce it soon after Tuesday. The order will last for around a month and will apply to seven prefectures that include major cities like Tokyo, which have seen a surge in new infections in the past few days. The extent to which emergency measures are not fully known Monday, but the declaration will give the prefectural governor the power to ask people to stay at home. Local media reports say public transportation and supermarkets will remain open. On Monday, at least 3,654 people in Japan had been diagnosed with COVID-19 and 85 of them had died, according to calculations kept by Johns Hopkins University. The Japanese government has recognized that the route of infection cannot be traced in an increasing number of cases. The US Embassy in Tokyo issued a stern warning to Americans in Japan on Friday, saying those who wanted to return must do so now or risk being stuck there “for an indefinite period of time. “” For US citizens who are now in Japan, if you plan to return to the United States, we recommend that you arrange an immediate departure. Failure to do so can mean living abroad indefinitely, “the embassy said in the warning. “Compared to the number of positive and hospitalized cases in the United States and Europe, the number of COVID-19 cases reported in Japan is still relatively low. The Japanese Government’s decision not to test broadly makes it difficult to accurately assess the prevalence of COVID-19. “

3 am: Japanese US troops announce public health emergencyThe Commander of the Japanese United States Forces on Monday announced a public health emergency for the Kanto Plain “due to a continual increase” of new corona virus infections in Tokyo. Around the declaration, which will remain in effect until May 5, gave commanders the authority to enforce compliance with measures health protection for those who live and work in all US Army, Navy, Air and Sea installations and facilities located on the Kanto Plain, the largest lowland in Japan that covers more than half of the eastern Kanto region, including Tokyo. “Protecting the health and safety of all people associated with the Japanese US Forces is my number one priority,” Lt. Gen. Kevin Schneider, commander of the US Japanese Forces, said in a statement Monday. “I cannot stress enough the importance of personal responsibility at a time like this. Stopping the spread of COVID-19 requires the entire team – service members, civilians, families and our Japanese partners. “This announcement comes as the daily count of new COVID-19 cases in the Japanese capital has jumped in recent days, from 78 on March 31 to 143 on Sunday, according to data published on the Tokyo Metropolitan Government website. Last month, an active member of the Japanese Armed Forces tested positive for COVID 19. In total, 1,033 people have tested positive for the disease in Tokyo and 30 of them have died, according to the government website. Calculations carried out by Johns Hopkins University show Japan’s national count reached 3,654 diagnosed cases and 85 deaths. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe appears to be planning to declare a state of emergency in big cities like Tokyo amid a recent surge in infections, according to local media reports.
