Global COVID-19 deaths surpass 1.1 million- Johns Hopkins University

In the USA, there are 8,090,241 cases, and there have been 219,047 deaths - while 3,197,539 people have recovered, according to the global COVID-19 Dashboard by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University.

Patients receive treatment in an intensive care unit of the Central Clinical Hospital "RZD-Medicine", which delivers medical aid to people infected with the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), in Moscow, Russia, May 18, 2020.

MI had 89 new cases per 1 million people per day, up from 81.6 cases last week, the health department said.

In parts of the state, ICU beds are "full", according to New Mexico Health and Human Services Secretary David Scrase.

Dr. Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health, said he's still "pretty guardedly optimistic" about that time frame even after two vaccine trials have been paused. Seven states saw a record for Covid-19 hospitalizations Thursday - Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, Montana, Oklahoma and Wisconsin, according to the Covid Tracking Project.

Other states with over 210,000 cases include Illinois, Georgia, North Carolina, Arizona, Tennessee and New Jersey, according to the CSSE. Gov. Andrew Cuomo says the state will target restrictions in refined areas based on case data, as opposed to implementing broad and disruptive restrictions regionally. Experts including Fauci have said rising positivity rates predict surges in cases, hospitalizations and deaths.


The state's test-positivity rate was 8.1%, she said.

It doesn't have to be this way.

"The virus is now winning", Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham said.

While type O blood may provide small benefits during the pandemic, another study in Blood Advances finds patients with A and AB blood may see worse symptoms.

The agency says this is "conclusive evidence" about the drug - and the findings are disappointing.

A retrospective study of individuals tested for coronavirus showed that blood type O "may offer some protection against COVID-19 infection". "We are concerned that the data from this open- label global trial have not undergone the rigorous review required to allow for constructive scientific discussion".
