(NEW YORK STATE) #Coronavirus Report: Gov.Cuomo Orders Nursing Homes to accept infected patients and allows employees infected with #coronavirus to continue to work and to treat residents at the Hornell Gardens facil ity in rural Steuben County, according to a New York Post report #AceHealthDesk report

#AceHealthReport – Apr.30: Gov. Andrew Cuomo has come under increasing scrutiny for a March 25 directive ordering nursing homes to accept #coronavirus patients: The text of the directive stated (original emphasis): “No resident shall be denied re-admission or admission to the NH [nursing home] solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of COVID-19. NHs are prohibited from requiring a hospitalised resident who is determined medically stable to be tested for #COVID19 prior to admission or readmission.”

#Coronavirus Report: Gov.Cuomo orders nursing home to take infected patients after recently allowing employees to work and treat residents with #cornavirus at Hornell Gardens

“Cuomo has since said that nursing homes could tell the state Department of Public Health they could not accept such patients, or transfer them to other facilities: However, some homes have said that the state was unresponsive when they reached out, and that they felt intense pressure to accept the patients — despite the unique risk coronavirus generally poses to elderly people.”

The state Health Department allowed nurses and other staff who tested positive for the coronavirus to continue treating COVID-19 patients at an upstate nursing home, The Post has learned: State officials signed off on the move during an April 10 conference call that excluded local officials from Steuben County, who protested the move, according to a document provided by the county government’s top administrator, Jack Wheeler. At least 15 people have died at the Hornell Gardens nursing home in the tiny town of Hornell since the outbreak, according to county tallies. State records show just seven deaths across the county and include no data about this home.

“Roughly one third of the staff and residents at the home have contracted the virus, the New York Post added.”

(SANTA CLARA, Calif.) #Coronavirus First Case Report: LA Times has reported on Wednesday the ‘ first known death from #coronavirus ‘ that happened in early February whose brother said she was healthy and did not smoke but was a frequent world traveller #AceHealthDesk report

#AceHealthReport – Apr.23: A seemingly healthy 57-year-old Bay Area woman who “suddenly died” in early February has now become the first known US death related to #coronavirus the Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday: Patricia Dowd, who worked as a manager for a semiconductor company, “exercised routinely, watched her diet and took no medication,” the newspaper reported:

#Coronavirus Report: A seemingly healthy woman’s sudden death is now the first known US coronavirus-related fatality, LA Times reports

Rick Cabello, Dowd’s older brother, told CNN she didn’t smoke and was in good health: “She was an athlete in her high school days, she was always active,” Cabello said. Her sudden death was a shock to family members: They all believed it was a heart attack, Cabello said.

Santa Clara County Health Officer Dr. Sara Cody said the deaths of three people in the county — one Feb. 6, another Feb. 17, and a third March 6 — were evidence that the novel coronavirus arrived in the Bay Area far earlier than expected and spread. Previously, the first documented fatality was outside Seattle on Feb. 29. The report came after Santa Clara County announced Tuesday that tissue samples confirmed two people who had died in early February tested positive for coronavirus: One victim, who the county said died on February 6, was described as a 57-year-old woman while the other was a 67-year-old man who died on February 17. The county did not provide any more details: In a Wednesday news conference, Santa Clara County Department of Public Health Director Dr. Sara Cody said neither case had recent travel history that would have exposed them to the virus, and officials are presuming both cases represent community transmission.

Before Dowd was found dead on February 6, “she had flu-like symptoms for a few days, then appeared to recover,” the Los Angeles Times reported: Five days before she died, Dowd called her brother to tell him she couldn’t make it to a family visit in Stockton, California: “She wasn’t feeling well, which was very unusual for her,” Cabello said. “I remember her specifically saying ‘I’m not feeling well,'” he added.

The Los Angeles Times reported that she had cancelled plans to go a weekend funeral: Dowd started working from home as her condition improved and had been in touch with a colleague around 8 a.m. on the day of her death. She was found dead about two hours later, according to the Los Angeles Times: Dowd was a frequent world traveler, her brother said.

A family member told the Los Angeles Times she had planned to travel to China later this year and went abroad “multiple times a year to different global locations.” The Los Angeles Times also reported that Dowd had a history of foreign travel, as did her co-workers at Lam Research: Dowd was “hardworking, loyal, and caring,” Cabello told the Los AngelesTimes: “She was the energy person in her large network of friends,” her brother said. “She was everybody’s rock.”

In a tribute wall set up for Patricia Dowd by the Cusimano Family Colonial Mortuary, a coworker wrote, “I’ll always remember the kindness and generosity of her spirit: She was genuinely caring and had an amazing energy.”

(WASHINGTON) #Coronavirus CDC Report: Announced the first confirmed cases of SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) infection in two pet cats in New York State both had mild respiratory illness and expected to make a full recovery: No persons were found to be infected in the household #AceHealthDesk reports

#AceHealthReport – Apr.22: U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) National Veterinary Services Laboratories (NVSL) today announced the first confirmed cases of SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) infection in two pet cats. These are the first pets in the United States to test positive for SARS-CoV-2.

#Coronavirus Report: Two pet cats have tested positive for #COVID19 in New York State CDC.Gov/

At this time, routine testing of animals is not recommended: Should other animals be confirmed positive for SARS-CoV-2 in the United States, USDA will post the findings. State animal health and public health officials will take the lead in making determinations about whether animals should be tested for SARS-CoV-2.

SARS-CoV-2 infections have been reported in very few animals worldwide, mostly in those that had close contact with a person with #COVID19: At this time, routine testing of animals is not recommended: In the NY cases announced today, a veterinarian tested the first cat after it showed mild respiratory signs. No individuals in the household were confirmed to be ill with COVID-19:

The virus may have been transmitted to this cat by mildly ill or asymptomatic household members or through contact with an infected person outside its home: Samples from the second cat were taken after it showed signs of respiratory illness: The owner of the cat tested positive for COVID-19 prior to the cat showing signs.
Another cat in the household has shown no signs of illness: Both cats tested presumptive positive for SARS-CoV-2 at a private veterinary laboratory, which then reported the results to state and federal officials.

The confirmatory testing was conducted at NVSL and included collection of additional samples: NVSL serves as an international reference laboratory and provides expertise and guidance on diagnostic techniques, as well as confirmatory testing for foreign and emerging animal diseases: Such testing is required for certain animal diseases in the U.S. in order to comply with national and international reporting procedures.

The World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) considers SARS-CoV-2 an emerging disease, and therefore USDA must report confirmed U.S. animal infections to the OIE: Public health officials are still learning about SARS-CoV-2, but there is no evidence that pets play a role in spreading the virus in the United States.

(ZURICH, Switzerland.) #Coronavirus Latest Report: Dividing the population between those that can join society and those who can’t as Roche to provide antibody tests for those that are negative and those that are positive by next month but only in countries that accept European CE regulatory standards and is seeking U.S. FDA emergency authorisation for its use in the United States: #AceHealthDesk report

#AceHealthReport – Apr.17: Swiss drugmaker Roche aims by next month to offer blood tests to identify those who had been infected with the coronavirus, potentially helping inform locked-down nations of who might have some immunity and be able to resume work or contact with the public

The Basel-based company said on Friday it wants to make the antibody test available by early May in countries that accept European CE regulatory standards, and is seeking U.S. Food and Drug Administration emergency authorisation for its use in the United States: It plans by June to boost test production to “high double-digit millions” per month, said Thomas Schinecker, Roche’s diagnostics head.

#Coronavirus Report: Switzerland’s Roche joins race to make #coronavirus antibody tests by May and sell them to they say demonstrates peoples immune systems

Roche joins a global race in which U.S.-based Abbott Laboratories and Becton Dickinson and Co, Italy’s DiaSorin and others hope to sell tests that demonstrate people’s immune systems have developed antibodies in response to the new coronavirus:

While it is not yet known for sure if those who have been infected develop immunity to the new virus as with many other illnesses, accurate antibody tests are seen as essential to help nations craft strategies to end business and travel shutdowns that have battered economies around the globe: “This is the working assumption: If you test and find people that have developed these antibodies, then at least for a certain period of time they will have gained immunity,” Schinecker told Reuters. “We worked day and night on this, over weekends, to make sure we can help as many patients as possible.”

Roche’s test, which differs from the PCR assays it also makes that use a nose swab to identify active infections, will run on more than 40,000 of its cobas e testing machines installed worldwide: Roche’s new test will identify immunoglobulin M (IgM) and immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibodies. The body quickly produces IgM antibodies for the initial fight against infection. IgG antibodies remain longer in the body, suggesting possible immunity.

Countries have various plans to use such tests to better understand the COVID-19 illness caused by the virus, and identify those who were infected but showed only mild symptoms, or none at all: Finland, Germany, Britain and other countries have antibody testing plans. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention plans to use them to study community-wide transmission.

In Roche’s home country, Switzerland, officials are examining tests, but warn excitement may be premature given positive tests may say little about actual immunity: “What you can’t say, and that’s this idea that’s going around, is that if I have the antibodies, then I know if I’m immune or not,” said Patrick Mathys, the Swiss health ministry’s crisis management head: That will take more research.

Even tests with high accuracy have weaknesses, potentially producing many false negative and false positive results. False positives could lead someone to believe they have immunity when in fact they had not been infected:

Roche’s tests have met the company’s own accuracy expectations, Schinecker said, though it is not yet releasing final figures: “We put our best scientists on this,” he said. “What we see is that the way we’ve designed the assay, it’s extremely specific.”

(GENEVA) #WHO Coronavirus Report: Investigation of recovered #COVID19 patients testing positive again they said on Saturday and that it was looking into reports of patients testing positive again after initially test ing negative for the disease while being considered for discharge and U.K. pledges £200-million in aid on Sunday in tackling the second wave returning to the country #AceHealthDesk report

#AceHealthReport: Apr.12: Britain said on Sunday it was pledging 200 million pounds ($248 million) to the World Health Organisation (WHO) and charities to help slow the spread of the coronavirus in vulnerable countries and so help prevent a second wave of infections: More than 1.6 million people are reported to have been infected by the novel coronavirus globally and deaths have topped 100,000 according to John Hopkins University: https://hub.jhu.edu/2020/04/09/data-visualization-covid19-map/
Infections have been reported in 210 countries since the first cases were identified in China in December last year and British aid minister Anne-Marie Trevelyan said assisting the poorest nations now would help prevent the virus returning to the United Kingdom:

#Coronavirus Report: UK pledges 200 million pounds in aid to help stop second coronavirus wave returning to country by assisting the poorest nations after #WHO looking into reports of patients testing negative and then positive again

COVID19 Cases Test negative first and then positive after as they are being discharged: https://t.me/reuters_news/126759 Reuters World News, [Apr 11, 2020 at 22:29]

Britain has reported almost 10,000 deaths from the coronavirus so far, the fifth highest national number globally: “While our brilliant doctors and nurses fight coronavirus at home, we’re deploying British expertise and funding around the world to prevent a second deadly wave reaching the UK,” Trevelyan said in a statement.

“Coronavirus does not respect country borders so our ability to protect the British public will only be effective if we strengthen the healthcare systems of vulnerable developing countries too.”

The British government said 130 million pounds would go to United Nations’ agencies, with 65 million for the WHO: Another 50 million pounds would go to the Red Cross to help war-torn and hard to reach areas, and 20 million pounds going to other organisations and charities.

The cash would help areas with weak health systems such as war-ravaged Yemen, which reported its first case on Friday, and Bangladesh, which is hosting 850,000 Rohingya refugees in crowded camps, it said: Britain’s support for the WHO contrasts with the view of U.S. President Donald Trump who has criticised its handling of the COVID-19 pandemic with suggestions his administration might re-evaluate U.S. funding

“The United Kingdom’s generous contribution is a strong statement that this is a global threat that demands a global response,” Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO’s Director General said: “We are all in this together, which means protecting health around the world will help to protect the health of people in the UK.”

(BRUSSELS) EU Agree fund help the people across Europe so they say, but no details are available of HOW it will be measured out and in what proportions will it be shared and at this time in history it is those who will be judged by `God not man for their ‘ charitable works ‘ and all others will be found wanting #AceHealthDesk report

#AceHealthReport – Apr.11: The fact that the main details about the agreed fund remain unknown raises questions across the European Union. Moreover, the deal about the new recovery fund is reached in addition to already agreed measures to allocate 550 billion euros ($602 million) for the COVID-19 response.

#Coronavirus Report: Editor says ‘ Only By Giving Will You Receive and only by ‘ Receiving Can You Give More of Yourselves as by ‘ Giving & Receiving ‘ can you truly say that you are ‘ charitable ‘ and as charity begins not in the pocket but in the ❤️Of all people who glorify God will the #Truth be revealed once more OR will it be #Bruxit

It is not yet clear whether the fund envisions grants or loans for the countries most affected by the coronavirus:

“Some member states expressed the view that this should be achieved via common debt issuance; other member states said that alternative ways should be found,” Eurogroup President and Portuguese Finance Minister Mario Centeno said on Thursday.

Centeno did not disclose what alternative ways are to be considered, so it is up to the European Council and heads of states of EU members to make a final decision.

Eurozone Temporarily Abandoning Maastricht Criteria

The new decisions barely go further than what had been announced earlier. Besides, there is no clarity on the so-called coronabonds — Eurobonds that will help overcome the economic consequences of the coronavirus pandemic — as well. Italy, Spain and other southern European countries have been asking for the issuance of coronabonds since late March but so far the northern states are not backing this idea.

“We are committed to do everything necessary to meet this challenge in a spirit of solidarity. A coordinated and comprehensive strategy is necessary to deal with health emergency needs, to support economic activity and to prepare the ground for the recovery,” the joint declaration of the Eurogroup ministers, which was agreed following the meeting on Thursday, said.

According to the Eurogroup, there is a “flexibility in EU rules.” On March 23, the finance ministers agreed with the assessment of the Commission that the conditions for the use of the general escape clause of the EU fiscal framework were fulfilled:
