Deaths in New York Nursing Homes Due to Coronavirus COVID-19

More than 4,800 people diagnosed and suspected of dying of new Coronavirus in nursing homes in New York State

According to US media reports on the 5th, the New York State Department of Health reported that between March 1 and May 3, a total of at least 4813 people were diagnosed in New York State nursing homes and adult care institutions, or suspected of dying of new coronary pneumonia. This figure does not include old people who lived in nursing homes and died after being hospitalized.

 

The New York Times reported that as of April 28, New York State Nursing Homes and Adult Nursing Institutions had reported a total of 3,025 deaths from New Coronary Pneumonia. In the updated death data, more than 1,600 people were suspected of dying of new coronary pneumonia. They did not report a positive result of the virus test, but the symptoms were similar.

The New York State Department of Health said that because they improved the statistical methods, the number of deaths in institutions such as nursing homes may change in the future.

The Associated Press reported that this change in data indicates that the outbreak in nursing homes in New York State is probably much more serious than people had previously estimated.


New York State Coronavirus epidemic is continuing to ease

Other data show that the New York State epidemic is continuing to ease. New York State Governor Andrew Como held a press conference in New York City that day, New York State added 659 patients with new coronary pneumonia who were hospitalized on the 4th, which fell for the fourth consecutive day and was the first time since March 24 that it was below 700.

There were 230 deaths from newly diagnosed coronary pneumonia, which was less than 300 for the fifth consecutive day.

The total number of hospitalizations fell to 9,600, which was less than 10,000 for the third consecutive day.

 

New Coronavirus Patients in New York Fewer Now

New York City Mayor Bai Sihao said at a press conference that May 3, New York City added 75 new patients with new coronary pneumonia, which was 13 fewer than the 2nd.

The number of intensive care patients was 596, 36 fewer than the 2nd; The positive rate of virus detection was 22%, an increase of 5 percentage points from the 2nd.

 

New York City also reported 15 cases of children with multi-system inflammatory syndrome, of which 4 people were positive for the new coronavirus and 6 had virus antibodies, and no patient deaths have been reported so far. The doctor suspects that the syndrome is related to the new coronavirus, and reminds people who have symptoms of fever, rash, abdominal pain, and vomiting to contact the doctor immediately.

 

Como said that although the epidemic is mitigated, "today's actions will determine the future situation", "detection-tracking-isolation" is still the key to controlling the infection rate. New York State “restart” must take a sensible approach based on the data. He said that speeding up the restart may reduce economic losses, but it will result in the loss of more lives, and life is priceless.

 

The New York Times reported that a recent model calculation by the Federal Emergency Measures Agency (FEMA) shows that if the US states speed up their work.

By June 1, the number of new-day deaths from new coronary pneumonia in the United States may increase to 3000.

At the end of June, the number of new infections in a single day may reach 200,000.

According to the statistics of Johns Hopkins University, nearly 319,000 people have been diagnosed with New Coronavirus infection in New York State, and 25,000 people have died.

FDA Launches New Website to Encourage COVID-19 Rehabilitation Patients to Donate Plasma

According to foreign media TechCrunch, one of the ways currently being sought to develop effective treatments for COVID-19 is to use convalescent plasma. Basically, this means using plasma from COVID-19 patients who have fully recovered, hoping to transfer the antibodies they produced during the fight against the virus to others. 

US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) creates dedicated website to seek recovery plasma donationsThe US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has created a dedicated new website that seeks recovery plasma donations from COVID-19 rehabilitation patients and explains their potential uses.
The use of plasma during recovery is hardly a new concept. In fact, it has been used since the late 1890s and was used during the Spanish influenza pandemic in 1918, although "the results were mixed."
Modern methods can help improve the efficacy and potential of recovered plasma as a therapeutic method. There are currently some drugs under development that use plasma (ani…
