Public health officials are particularly worried about small cities and rural areas in these states where hospital beds are limited and ICU wards are already filling to capacity, the newspaper reported.

Officials are also keeping an eye on 11 cities with an increase in cases: Baltimore, Cleveland, Columbus, Indianapolis, Las Vegas, Miami, Minneapolis, Nashville, New Orleans, Pittsburgh and St. Louis, according to Deborah Birx, MD, coordinator of the White House Coronavirus Task Force.

Public health officials are particularly worried about small cities and rural areas in these states where hospital beds are limited and ICU wards are already filling to capacity, the newspaper reported. States in the South and West continue to report record-high numbers of cases, particularly around the Gulf Coast. Although Florida and Texas have led the surge in infections in recent weeks, an uptick has also been reported in Alabama, Louisiana, and Mississippi. Older adults and people who have severe underlying medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing serious complications from COVID-19 illness.

  • There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
  • The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.
  • The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person. Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet). Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. Some recent studies have suggested that COVID-19 may be spread by people who are not showing symptoms.

    July 23, 2020 — Between late March and mid-May, it’s probable that up to 10 times more coronavirus infections occurred than the number of cases that were reported during, according to a new study by the CDC’s COVID-19 Response Team.

    Published Tuesday in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine, the study looked for antibodies in 10 locations across the U.S. In San Francisco, 1% of samples had antibodies in late April, as compared with nearly 7% in New York City, which was collected in late March.

    “It is likely that greater than 10 times more SARS-CoV-2 infections occurred than the number of reported COVID-19 cases; most persons in each site, however, likely had no detectable SARS-CoV-2 antibodies,” the authors wrote.

    For seven locations — Connecticut, Florida, Louisiana, Missouri, New York City, Utah and Washington state — the research team estimated that more than 10 times the number of infections occurred than reported cases.

    Many of the infections likely came from people with COVID-19 who had mild or no symptoms and didn’t take a test or seek medical treatment. They likely contributed to the ongoing spread of the coronavirus while still contagious.

    “Because persons often do not know if they are infected with SARS-CoV-2, the public should continue to take steps to help prevent the spread of COVID-19,” the authors wrote.
