Covid and children - United States:

The number and rate of coronavirus cases in children in the U.S. has "steadily increased" between March and July, according to new guidance released Friday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The surge in cases comes as schools across the country struggle with returning to ‘in-person learning.’  There has been a 90% increase in the number of Covid-19 cases among children in the United States over the last four weeks, according to a new analysis by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Children's Hospital Association

Children make up about 22% of the nation's population and account for approximately 9% of all COVID-19 cases, as of August 20.  The CDC indicated at least 32% of children with the coronavirus are asymptomatic.  However, the CDC also cautioned that evidence suggests as many as 45% of these cases are asymptomatic. 

 

There were 179,990 new Covid-19 cases among U.S. children between July 9 and August 6.  At least 380,174 total Covid-19 cases and 90 deaths have been reported in children as of August 6.

  •  3  - Masks could cut spread of COVID-19 virus.  Surgical face masks effectively block the

     spread of seasonal coronaviruses in respiratory droplets, suggesting that masks

     could prevent transmission of SARS-CoV-2.  Scientists detected coronavirus RNA in

     coarse droplets and finer ‘aerosol’ droplets emitted by those not wearing masks.

     Masks reduced detection of viral RNA in both types of droplet.  Larger particles are

     carried by sneezes and coughs, whereas exhaled breath can spread aerosol

     droplets.  Surgical masks reduce transmission of coronaviruses and also influenza.

      recent study finds some recovered patients, antibodies are present at very low

      levels and in some cases are undetectable.  30% of the volunteers and

      those under the age of 40, never developed high levels of SARS-CoV-2 antibodies,

      suggesting that other immune responses helped rid them of their infections.

  • 20 - The virus ravages organs from heart to brain.  Autopsies have found the new

      coronavirus not only in the lungs, but in the kidneys, heart, brain and other

      organs.

  •        The number of COVID-19 cases around the world passed 5 million, according to Johns         Hopkins University data.
  • 21 - Potent human antibodies could inspire a vaccine.  A vaccine typically triggers the

      body’s immune response, which generates antibodies that fend off a particula virus.

      Some viruses do not stimulate an antibody response, which means there’s no

      guarantee a vaccine can be developed for every disease or how long protection

      lasts. 

  •        2.44 million Americans filed for unemployment benefits, bringing the total to almost           40 million.

     weeks.  Those taking the drug reported more side effects than those taking the

     placebo.

  •         Virus conscripts a pair of human proteins to invade cells Researchers have found a           second protein that SARS-CoV-2 uses to enter human cells, potentially offering a new         target for vaccines and drugs.  The SARS-CoV-2 protein called Spike is known to                 attach to a human protein called ACE2, which allows the virus to enter cells.   Two             teams of researchers have now found that the human protein neuropilin-1 (NRP1)               also aids viral invasion.
  •        Eli Lilly started the first COVID-19 antibody treatment trials in humans. The                       treatment uses what are known as monoclonal antibodies made from people who               were sick with the coronavirus. They are meant to work as natural antibodies do in             the body by blocking the virus.
  •       The Congressional Budget Office said that the U.S. economy could be $15.7 trillion              smaller over the next decade than it otherwise would have been if Congress does not          mitigate the economic damage from the coronavirus.
  •       The discovery of host genes that aid viral activity could aid the development of new            therapies and reveal why some people are more susceptible to COVID-19 than others.        Numerous studies have suggested that the immune system contributes to the organ          damage seen in some severe cases of COVID-19.  The survey of 37 anatomical sites,          including the lungs, found little correlation between levels of the virus and                          inflammation.  Some tissues harbored the virus but were not inflamed, whereas others        were damaged but did not contain high levels of SARS-CoV-2.
  •  1 - Gilead Sciences Inc. said its antiviral drug remdesivir showed improvement in

    patients with moderate COVID-19 in a late-stage study

  •  6 - Greta Thunberg helped to launch a crowdfunding campaign to buy medical supplies

     and provide telemedicine services to residents in Brazil’s Amazon rainforest, where a

     lack of robust health services has made the coronavirus outbreak particularly

     devastating.

     were enough to halt the epidemic.  Lockdowns such as stay-at-home orders and

     policies that restrict face-to-face contact — were especially effective, reducing

     transmission by 81%!  The combination of policies aimed at slowing the virus’s

     spread prevented more than 3 million deaths from the epidemic’s start to early May.

  •        New York City began the first phase of reopening after nearly three months of                     coronavirus lockdown restrictions.
  •        Lockdown measures are estimated to have prevented 500 million COVID-19 related

deaths worldwide. 

  •       The National Bureau of Economic Research found the U.S. was officially in a recession         in February, bringing an end to a historic 128 months of economic growth. 
  •  9 - People who feel fine can unknowingly spread the virus A massive coronavirus

     testing campaign in Vietnam found that infected people who never show symptoms

     can pass the virus to others.  Early in the global COVID-19 outbreak, Vietnam began

     to repeatedly test people at high risk of infection. Those who tested positive were

     admitted to a hospital until they either recovered or tested negative.

  •       Since Memorial Day in the United States, nine states report increase in

hospitalizations due to coronavirus.

  •        The United States surpasses 115,000 coronavirus deaths as new cases increase

 across more than 12 states.

  •        Bars, karaoke and gyms can aid ‘superspread.’  Clusters of coronavirus infections

 are often linked to events where many people breathe heavily while packed

 together, such as karaoke parties and gym sessions, according to a survey in Japan.

 Identified ‘superspreading’ incidents occurred in hospitals, nursing homes and other

 care facilities, but more than half took place at musical events, restaurants and

 workplaces.

  • 16 - WHO welcomed initial clinical trial results from the UK that showed dexamethasone,

      a corticosteroid, could be lifesaving for patients critically ill with COVID-19. The news

      built off the Global Research and Innovation Forum

  • 17 - More than one billion people face increased risk of severe COVID-19 A host of

                 common health problems boost a person’s risk of becoming seriously ill if infected

                 by the new coronavirus. 

  • 19 - Fight against Misinformation, ‘Youth is a shield against infection by close contacts.

     People under the age of 20 are much less likely than their elders to catch the new

     coronavirus from an infected household member.  Public-health officials instituted

     isolation of infected individuals and quarantine of their contacts.  People under the

     age of 20 had a 5.2% risk of being infected by a member of their household,

     compared with a 14.8% risk for people aged 20–59 and an 18.4% risk for people

  •  7 - Autopsies links immune response to death from COVID-19.  An autopsy-based study

    of 11 patients who died from COVID-19, shows a mismatch between viral hotspots

    in the body and sites of inflammation and organ damage, suggesting that immune

    responses, rather than the virus itself, are responsible for death.

  •      The number of coronavirus cases in the U.S. surpassed three million.
  •  8 One nation shows wildly disparate local infection rates Europe’s effort to

     identify people infected by the coronavirus found that one-third did not show

     symptoms.  Nationwide, 5% of people tested positive, one in three were

     asymptomatic!  Researchers estimate one million people previously

      60,000 people who had spent time in or near Itaewon clubs in late April or early

      May.

  •        The United States reports 63,247 new coronavirus cases, its highest single-day

 increase to date.

      day record of 12,000 in April.

  • 15 - Severe COVID-19 has a telltale immune profile.  Scientists identified an immune-

     system signature in people with serious COVID-19.  Compared to the individuals

     with mild or moderate symptoms, those with severe disease produced fewer

     antiviral proteins called interferons and more inflammatory molecules.

  •        Single-day tallies for cases, hospitalizations, and deaths reach highs across several             states including Florida, Oklahoma, and Mississippi.
  •        Researchers take gamble with antibody tests for coronavirus.  Katie Doores, King’s            College, London, monitored the concentration of neutralizing antibodies against SARS-        CoV-2 in 65 infected people for up to 94 days Antibody levels began to fall a month          after symptoms appeared, raising questions about the durability of vaccines designed          to promote the production of neutralizing antibodies.
  • 16 - Antiviral antibodies peter out within weeks after infection Key antibodies that

     neutralize the effects of the coronavirus, fall to low levels within months of SARS-

     CoV-2 infection.  Neutralizing antibodies can block a pathogen from infecting cells,

     but often wane after just a few weeks.

  •        U.S., British, and Canadian officials say that Russian hackers targeted academic                 institutions and laboratories working on coronavirus vaccine research.
  •        Nineteen antibodies proved highly effective at preventing SARS-CoV-2 infection of cell          samples. The 19 antibodies attach to a variety of locations on the coronavirus spike           protein.  A therapy made from antibodies that fasten onto the spike protein at                   multiple sites could be difficult for the virus to evade through mutation
  • 17 - A record number of cases, 237,743 is reported to the World Health Organization.
  • 18 - A new record number of cases, 259,848 is reported to the World Health

     Organization.

  • 22 - Severely ill people yield diverse trove of powerful antibodies.  Scientists identified a

     diverse group of antibodies that block the coronavirus’s ability to infect cells, even

     when applied in low doses.  The immune-system proteins, neutralizing antibodies,

     interfere with hostile microbes trying to enter target cells.

     (L. Liu et al. Nature http://doi.org/d4md; 2020).

 

  • - ​      The United States charges two Chinese hackers accused of targeting institutions              working on vaccine research in the U.S., Germany, UK, and Japan, among other                nations. 
  • -       ​Global coronavirus cases surpass 15 million; the United States remains the nation with       the highest number of cases worldwide.
  • 24 - Scientists found mutations in SARS-CoV-2 samples in low frequencies from infected

     people around the world.  Treatment ‘cocktails’ of multiple neutralizing antibodies,

     each recognizing a different part of the spike protein, could stop the virus from

     evolving resistance to these molecules. 

  • 26 - Florida's 423,855 known COVID-19 cases now exceed cases in New York state.   
  • 28 - Mutations allow virus to elude antibodies Mutations in SARS-CoV-2 may help the

      virus thwart potent immune molecules.  The blood of patients who recover from

      COVID-19 contains immune-system molecules called neutralizing antibodies that

      disable particles of the new coronavirus.  Most antibodies recognize the new

      coronavirus’s spike protein, which the virus uses to infect cells.
