Florida, USA



The state reported 24,730 new cases on Thursday, bringing its seven-day average to more than 18,000 cases a day, according to data compiled by The Washington Post. With 15,796 people hospitalized for the virus, Florida now accounts for 1 out of every 5 covid hospitalizations in the nation. More than 3,200 people are currently occupying beds in intensive care units, an increase of 17% from last week.

DeSantis has opposed implementing pandemic restrictions during the fourth wave of the pandemic. The Republican is in a back-and-forth with school districts that are pushing for mask mandates for children returning to school. That debate is expected to intensify after four educators in Broward County died of the virus within 24 hours, CBS Miami reported.

Texas, USA



No pediatric ICU beds left in Dallas, county judge says

Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins said Friday there were no pediatric intensive care unit beds available in Dallas, Texas and there haven't been for the past 24 hours. Surging COVID-19 cases due to the Delta variant and hospital staffing shortages in the area may be in part to blame.

"In Dallas, we have zero ICU beds left for children," Jenkins said Friday at a virtual news conference. "That means if your child's in a car wreck, if your child has a congenital heart defect or something and needs an ICU bed, or more likely if they have COVID and need an ICU bed, we don't have one. Your child will wait for another child to die."

He said the same is true for pediatric ICU beds in the 19 surrounding counties as well, mentioning that young patients may have to be transported farther away for care.

"Your child will just not get on the ventilator," he said. "Your child will be CareFlighted to Temple or Oklahoma City or wherever we can find them a bed, but they won't be getting one here unless one clears and that's been true for 24 hours."

As of August 6, there were 573 children aged 0 to 17 hospitalized from COVID-19 complications in Dallas County since the beginning of the pandemic, according to weekly data published by the Dallas County Department of Health.

Are you the one who created a post at LIHKG earlier to talk about this new national record?
I am sorry that I was unable to quote your post. When I had time to quote that post, I could not find the post.

I hope you can post more about Japan because I just do not have enough time to study so many countries.

France reports more than 100 new coronavirus patients in ICU wards



PARIS (Reuters) - France saw the number of patients in intensive care wards with COVID-19 increase by 111 on Monday, the first time since early April that the tally was over 100, health ministry data showed.

The total number in emergency care beds rose to 1,667, following a steady increase from a 2021 low of 859 on July 21. At the end of April, at the peak of the third wave, more than 6,000 COVID-19 patients were in ICU.

The worsening data follows a sharp increase in the number of daily new infections, driven by the more contagious Delta variant of the virus. New infections are back to a seven-day average of more than 22,000 per day, after having fallen to less than 2,000 per day at the end of June.

France also reported 68 new coronavirus deaths in hospitals, taking the total to 112,270.

Germany tightens travel restrictions on US as COVID-19 cases surge



Germany added the United States to its "high-risk" area list and will soon tighten entry restrictions for unvaccinated travelers who had recently been in the U.S.

Starting Sunday, travelers who have recently spent time in the U.S. will need to be fully vaccinated or demonstrate an “important reason” for entering. Those who are unvaccinated or unable to show proof of recovery will need to self-isolate for 10 days upon arrival. The quarantine period can end on the fifth day with proof of a negative COVID-19 test.

Previously, unvaccinated travelers had to show a negative coronavirus test to enter Germany.

The change comes as the U.S. faces its fourth wave of COVID-19, driven by the highly contagious delta variant. The country reported more than 900,000 new COVID cases in the past week with nearly 52% of its population vaccinated, according to data from Johns Hopkins University and Medicine.

Israel, Turkey and Vietnam and other countries were also added to Germany’s high-risk list, joining destinations like the United Kingdom, Spain, India and Mexico.

Germany has been open to tourists from the U.S. since June 20, shortly after the European Union added the United States to a list of countries it believed could see the gradual lifting of travel restrictions. The recommendation is not binding, and each country in the bloc can enforce its own travel restrictions.

The EU has yet to remove the U.S. from its safe travel list, despite the U.S. maintaining a travel ban on most European countries. Restrictions against the European Schengen area were first implemented in March 2020 and prevent travel to the U.S. for most people from:

Austria
Belgium
Czech Republic
Denmark
Estonia
Finland
France
Germany
Greece
Hungary
Iceland
Italy
Latvia
Liechtenstein
Lithuania
Luxembourg
Malta
Netherlands
Norway
Poland
Portugal
Slovakia
Slovenia
Spain
Sweden
Switzerland
Monaco
San Marino
Vatican City
German Chancellor Angela Merkel pressed President Joe Biden on the travel ban during a meeting last month. Biden said at the time that his team was reviewing the travel restrictions, but no changes have been made.

Step 2. We need to know the differences in meanings of the words used by different countries.

At first, there were no international standard for the definitions of "new cases" and "new deaths". Later, WHO issued a standard for all countries for reporting purposes. However, not every country follows the standard set by WHO.

Take UK as an example. In order to reduce the number of COVID-19 deaths, UK suggested to their doctors that the doctors did not needed to write down COVDI-19 as the cause of death in the death certificate. This suggestion was condemned by some health workers.
Finally, UK only counts people who die within 28 days after positively tested so that they can reduce the number of reported COVID-19 deaths.

As a result, now some British said "Flu and pneumonia (肺炎) deaths now 10 times higher than Covid". Read, for example, https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2021/06/22/flu-pneumonia-deaths-now-ten-times-higher-covid/

However, the original name of COVID-19 is 武漢肺炎.

Again, you have to spend a lot of time to know what really have happened in a country before you can interpret the data about that country correctly.

Texas Supreme Court blocks orders allowing masks



The Texas Supreme Court stepped in Sunday evening to block lower-court orders that had allowed Dallas and San Antonio — and cities, counties and schools across Texas — to impose mask mandates contrary to an executive order by Gov. Greg Abbott. The temporary restraining orders, issued by separate District Court judges and upheld Friday by intermediate appellate courts, had halted enforcement of Abbott's July 29 edict.

We cannot save the people in Texas!

美國疫情惡化 兒童累計入院人數創新高



美國的新型肺炎疫情惡化,兒童累計入院人數創新高,達到1902人。

Delta變種病毒肆虐,現時美國每日平均新增個案達到12萬9千宗,比過去兩星期倍增,入院人數是半年來新高。不單止兒童,18至49歲入院人數上周亦創新高,而美國每日平均有600名患者死亡,比上月倍增。

全國五分一入院的患者都在佛羅里達州,達到16100人,同樣創新高,州內九成深切治療部病床已被使用。

美國12歲以下小童仍未能注射疫苗,應否強制學生開課時戴口罩,減低他們受感染機會,在部份共和黨管治的州份引起爭議或訴訟,有學校不理會州政府禁令,決定要求學生返學戴口罩。

另外紐約州政府強制全部醫護人員,下月尾前要注射至少一劑疫苗,州政府早前已強制必須面對病人的公立醫院員工打針,目前七成半公院醫護人員完成接種。
