Fourth of July parties lead to new cases of COVID-19 in New York, governor says

Independence Day parties over the Fourth of July weekend lead to new cases of COVID-19, says Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Cuomo says that the state's contact tracing efforts for new cases of the virus found that 35 percent of people who attended a Fourth of July weekend party in Suffolk County - or more than 1\/3 of the entire party - became infected with COVID-19.

Locally, Onondaga County Executive Ryan McMahon said over the weekend that two people who were at a popular hangout at Skaneateles Lake on the holiday had tested positive for the virus, warning everyone that was there to get tested.

"It's clear based on contact tracing that many of the new cases in New York are a result of a lack of compliance during the July 4 weekend and illustrate how quickly the virus spreads, with one party, for example, infecting more than a third of attendees," Governor Cuomo continued. "I cannot be more clear: Look at what's happening in the rest of the country - if we are not smart, if we don't wear masks and socially distance, cases will spike. No one wants to go back to the hell we experienced three months ago, so please stay vigilant."

The latest COVID-19 data provided by the state as of Tuesday:

Patient Hospitalization - 820 (+28)
Patients Newly Admitted - 71 (+11)
Hospital Counties - 31
Number ICU - 167 (-8)
Number ICU with Intubation - 101 (-2)
Total Discharges - 71,692 (+49)
Deaths - 5
Total Deaths - 24,994

Well, NY certainly isn't alone in their spike. Let's see how other states are doing:

Jeebus Christmas people.   We are testing 640,000 people a day now in the US.  Cases are going up....deaths not so much.  I get it one death is bad but get real.

It's not enough. Look at the positive rate.

Anything over 3 percent and the state is not keeping up with testing/testing enough. Like Florida, Arizona, Georgia, Texas, etc.

Deaths lag.  Usually 2-3 weeks after they test positive.

Death is not the worst-case outcome of COVID-19.

wichitaleaf: Jeebus Christmas people.   We are testing 640,000 people a day now in the US.  Cases are going up....deaths not so much.  I get it one death is bad but get real.


Symptoms lag behind initial infection by 7-14 days.

The serious complications that lead to death lag behind initial symptoms by 10-14 days.

That is why the spike in cases is so farking bad...  you aren't going to see the real toll for another week...
 
2020-07-14 8:50:49 PM  
 Every person that has not been exposed to the virus eventually will... more cases... it will be here until it runs out of hosts to replicate it.

wichitaleaf: Cases are going up....deaths not so much.


Deaths lag the new cases by a few weeks.
Dying is not the only option. Survivors may face months or years of serious complications.
Full hospitals and overworked doctors will reduce the quality of care for other patients (heart attacks etc).

It's no worse than the flu. It'll kill no more than 60,000 by the end of August. The heat of summer will end it.

Florida had new cases go down today, that means since "deaths lag" deaths will be going down in about 2 weeks.

If the disease was under control you'd have something like 6,000 cases found with 640,000 tests and not 60,000.
When you get the test positivity rate down to 1% AND you're doing a ton of tests, at that point you can probably say you're doing OK, but right now you're just finding out that you're hooped in greater detail.

hospitals wouldn't be getting overwhelmed if this was just a matter of testing catching more cases by virtue of testing volumes.

wichitaleaf: I've heard about the lag for 2 months now.


The case fatality rate is strongly affected by age. If more of the new infections are in younger people then a flat # of new cases per day will correspond to a decline in the # of deaths. Medical treatments are also improving, so someone who would have had a ventilator shoved down his throat a few months ago may now get anti-inflammatory and anti-coagulant drugs which prevent that outcome.

None of which means that the disease isn't a real problem, or that it isn't rapidly getting much worse in the United States over the last few weeks.

WAIT! you mean to tell me large groups of adult humans, largely meeting unmasked, be they inside or outside, and then getting drunk, might lead to what my sister in chicago has now termed "the wine hugs?"

you, know, where frustrated people who've been isolating for ages -and/or people who though isolating was stupid to begin with- all get drunk together, and then get touchy-feely, sing and shout and scream and laugh (and maybe puke or cough), and generally just act like COVID never existed...

you mean THAT behavior could spread this virus???

Yes, the public health authorities in every other country on Earth are too stupid to figure out the secret relationship between testing and cases that you personally have figured out. Such incredible intellect is too valuable to be wasted on Fark. Quick, to the airport. It's imperative you Freedumsplain to the world's epidemiologists how they are wrong to enforce a travel ban on the USA.

My idea for the fourth would have led to absolutely 0 new hot spots. They should have loaded all the fireworks up onto flatbed trucks and then drove around town and at every home launch a firework in through the front window. Well, it would have led to 0 new COVID-19 hot spots.

ya know the protests if anything are showing the efficacy of face masks.
Tons of people in the protests wore them, and the transmission rate was far less than I feared it was going to be, barely a blip, one of the few pleasant surprises I've had this year.

OlderGuy: Every person that has not been exposed to the virus eventually will... more cases... it will be here until it runs out of hosts to replicate it.


Or, y'know, we could do what civilized countries are doing. Mandate masks, shut down nonessential businesses for a good long while, freeze rent/mortgages, and pay people to stay home. Y'know, deprive it of hosts for it to jump to.

Psh, nah, that's just crazy talk. Here in America, we don't do what other countries do, no matter HOW well it works. We do our own stupid thing, shoot ourselves in the feet repeatedly, and claim that we're the best country evar because of reasons.

I've heard that too.

That talking point doesn't even make sense. Because there aren't spikes in NY, Chicago, and Minneapolis like there are down south.

The only way that talking point makes sense is if the protestors are too afraid to get the COVID tests in the first place. If they aren't asking if they participated in the protests, then what incentive would they have to avoid getting tested?
