Policy

  • The nation’s governors raised bipartisan concerns Monday about the cost and administrative burden of recent presidential executive orders for unemployment relief. The executive orders set $400 weekly benefits but require states to apply for the federal funds and pay 25 percent of the cost. (The Washington Post)
  • Addressing COVID-19 in an increasingly urbanized world requires a focus on how urbanization shapes longer-term recovery. Improving spatial inequalities in cities, through innovation, digitalization, and green transformation, and strengthening local capacities, are necessary for recovery and resilience. (United Nations)
  • Digital technologies supporting public-health responses to COVID-19 include population surveillance, case identification, contact tracing and evaluation of interventions on the basis of mobility data and communication with the public. But digital tools are not silver bullets, and create their own problems of legal, ethical and privacy barriers to implementation. (Nature)
  • State Data Report, a joint report from the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Children’s Hospital Association, summarizes publicly reported data from 49 states, NYC, DC, Puerto Rico and Guam showing the best publicly available data on COVID 19 cases in children. Among the findings: An overall rate of 447 child COVID-19 cases per 100,000 children in the population; children represent 8.8 percent of all available cases, and 25 states reported 10 percent or more cases, while former coronavirus epicenter New York City reported 3 percent or fewer cases were children. (American Academy of Pediatrics)
  • California’s Alameda County is offering a $1,250 stipend to residents to stay home when they have been diagnosed with coronavirus. The eligibility extends to those who do not receive unemployment benefits or sick leave. The county has set aside $10 million for the project, which should cover 7,500 stipends, and local officials hope to be reimbursed by the state or federal governments. (CBS)
  • The federal government is asking states and territories to cover 25 percent of their National Guard costs later this month as part of the coronavirus relief mission. Virus-struck Texas and Florida’s shares, however, will be fully covered by the federal government – a move seen as politically calculated. (Politico)

Latest research news

  • A large-scale randomized text messaging experiment in India promoted health behavior for COVID-19 prevention, including increased reporting of symptoms to the local health workers and a greater adherence to social distancing and hygiene. The experiment also demonstrated positive spillover effects of messaging onto non-recipients within the same community. (Abhijit Banerjee et al. NBER)
  • The United States has a narrow opportunity to subdue COVID-19 before matters get much worse. Unless Americans use the weeks between now and the onset of winter earnestly to tamp down transmission, cold weather indoor living likely will cause a bleak season of winter illness. (STAT)
  • The number of reported coronavirus cases in the United States surpassed 5 million on Sunday, double the number since the end of June, the Washington Post reported. The 5 million mark comes just 17 days after the U.S. total exceeded 4 million, and reported U.S. cases have doubled since late June, peaking on July 17 with 76,491 cases in a single day. The United States leads the world with a quarter of all global infections. Brazil and India follow, according to the Post, with 3 million and 2.1 million reported infections, respectively. (The Washington Post)
  • Will vaccines against COVID-19 be less effective for obese adults than the general population? Maybe so, obesity researchers say, explaining that vaccines are known to be less protective for influenza, hepatitis B, tetanus and rabies in obese adults. (Kaiser Health News)
  • The CDC has updated guidance after testing positive for COVID-19 by reducing the isolation time to 10 days after symptoms begin and for 24 hours after fever has broken without the use of fever-reducing medications. The CDC also released new findings  that COVID-19 can result in prolonged illness, even among previously healthy young adults with no underlying chronic medical conditions. (JAMA Health Forum)
  • A potential Covid-19 vaccine from the biotech company Novavax has showed a promising immune response in a small, early trial, but not without a high rate of mostly mild side effects. (STAT)

  • A bipartisan group of governors from Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Ohio, North Carolina and Virginia has formed a pact with the Rockefeller Foundation to buy millions of coronavirus antigen tests, the most significant example so far of states teaming to fight the pandemic rather than working through the federal government. (Bloomberg)
  • As state elections officials move to expand mail-in voting as a safer practice during the pandemic, President Trump has threatened legal action to stop states from issuing mailed ballots to all active voters. (Politico)
  • Teachers protested Monday against resuming in-class instruction. In California, the decline in new COVID-19 cases is not enough to merit a change in Gov. Newsom’s order that Californian schools begin the August term with online learning. The Los Angeles teachers union and education officials on Monday agreed to a plan for resuming online-only classes later this month in the nation’s second-largest school district. (Reuters)

(Science)
  • New modeling by Harvard and Yale researchers concludes that testing students for COVID-19 every two days using a rapid and even insensitive test, coupled with strict behavioral interventions to keep the virus’s rate of transmission below 2.5, might be a safe way to bring college students back to campus this fall.

Policy

  • The federal government is asking states and territories to cover 25 percent of their National Guard costs later this month as part of the coronavirus relief mission. Virus-struck Texas and Florida’s shares, however, will be fully covered by the federal government – a move seen as politically calculated. (Politico)
  • A bipartisan group of governors from Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Ohio, North Carolina and Virginia has formed a pact with the Rockefeller Foundation to buy millions of coronavirus antigen tests, the most significant example so far of states teaming to fight the pandemic rather than working through the federal government. (Bloomberg)
  • As state elections officials move to expand mail-in voting as a safer practice during the pandemic, President Trump has threatened legal action to stop states from issuing mailed ballots to all active voters. (Politico)
  • Teachers protested Monday against resuming in-class instruction. In California, the decline in new COVID-19 cases is not enough to merit a change in Gov. Newsom’s order that Californian schools begin the August term with online learning. The Los Angeles teachers union and education officials on Monday agreed to a plan for resuming online-only classes later this month in the nation’s second-largest school district. (Reuters)
  • The Minneapolis Federal Reserve Bank recommended Sunday re-imposing strict coronavirus-related lockdowns for a month or longer across the U.S. to achieve long-term recovery. The regional bank also said the federal government can afford large sums for coronavirus relief to support the unemployed. (The Hill)
  • Despite ramping up coronavirus testing from about 100,000 per week in mid-March to more than 5 million per week in late July, U.S. public health officials are calling for a new approach to testing strategy: to screen whole populations using faster, cheaper, sometimes less accurate tests. This shift would slow the virus’ spread and facilitate a safe reopening of schools, factories, and offices. (Robert F. Service Science)

Latest research news

  • The CDC has updated guidance after testing positive for COVID-19 by reducing the isolation time to 10 days after symptoms begin and for 24 hours after fever has broken without the use of fever-reducing medications. The CDC also released new findings  that COVID-19 can result in prolonged illness, even among previously healthy young adults with no underlying chronic medical conditions. (JAMA Health Forum)
  • A potential Covid-19 vaccine from the biotech company Novavax has showed a promising immune response in a small, early trial, but not without a high rate of mostly mild side effects. (STAT)
  • Separate from the global efforts to develop a COVID-19 vaccine, an equally crucial competition is heating up to produce targeted antibodies. Clinical trials of monoclonal antibodies, which could both prevent and treat the disease, are already underway and could produce signs of efficacy in the next few months, perhaps ahead of vaccine trials. (Science)
  • New modeling by Harvard and Yale researchers concludes that testing students for COVID-19 every two days using a rapid and even insensitive test, coupled with strict behavioral interventions to keep the virus’s rate of transmission below 2.5, might be a safe way to bring college students back to campus this fall. (David Paltiel et al. JAMA)
  • A survey of 1,500 Americans shows that younger people have sharply higher assessments than older people do of COVID-19 health risks, for themselves as well as for others. The prospects of disease and death are particularly salient for the young because acute health risk is a relatively rare experience for them. (Pedro Bordalo et al. NBER)
  • Vaccine update: Dr. Anthony Fauci told a House panel Friday that 250,000 people have signed up for trials online. While early results for two leading vaccine candidates look promising, scientists won’t know until at least the fall whether the vaccines are safe and if they can prevent serious illness.

  • The abrupt expiration of unemployment insurance impacts individual workers and the economy as a whole. GDP is projected to decrease by about 2.5 percent in the second half of 2020, costing an average of two million jobs over the next year and raising the unemployment rate by up to 1.2 percentage points.

  • Children younger than 5 years might be important drivers of COVID-19 spread, having higher viral loads than older children and adults. A study of SARS-CoV-2 reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction finds that young kids with mild to moderate disease have high amounts of viral RNA in their nasopharynx. Behavioral habits of young children and close quarters in school and day care settings pose concerns as public health restrictions are beginning to ease. (Taylor Heald-Sargent et al.

Policy

  • With unemployment benefits expiring Friday, the White House offered a weeklong extension Thursday of a $600 weekly unemployment benefit. Congressional Democrats rejected extension, opting to keep the pressure on for a more sweeping bill that would deliver aid to state and local governments, help for the poor and funding for schools and colleges to address the pandemic. (The Associated Press)
  • A future coronavirus vaccine will be distributed jointly by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Department of Defense. The current plan breaks with the longstanding precedent that CDC allocates vaccines during major disease outbreaks through a centralized ordering system for state and local health officials. The Pentagon will guide manufacturing, packaging and distribution of the vaccine. (Politico)
  • The Los Angeles City Council is considering paying Los Angeles residents who test positive for COVID-19 to stay home through a $25 million wage replacement program, regardless of income, immigration status, or criminal record. Eligibility extends to individuals who agree to self-isolate and provide public health information to Los Angeles County contact tracers. (CBSN)
  • A coronavirus test is not really a test if the result is too late to act on. Timely testing is needed to detect brewing outbreaks, contact tracing and respond with targeted shutdowns. LabCorp and Quest, the two biggest commercial labs, have acknowledged long delays in processing the vastly increased volume of tests. (The New York Times)
  • Senate Republicans are planning to reduce $600 weekly unemployment benefits to $200 as part of the next coronavirus relief package. California Democrats unveiled a plan to pump an extra $100 billion into the economy, by promising to scrounge up the extra cash without raising taxes and by shifting funds, accelerating spending projects and, it seems, asking Californians to pre-pay their taxes. (CalMatters)
  • While Congress negotiates liability protection for reopening businesses, some employers are already requiring workers to sign waivers agreeing not to sue if they get COVID-19 on the job. (Fortune, Kaiser Health News)
  • With the fall semester weeks away, universities need to reconsider the health risks of in-class instruction for students, faculty and staff. While some state universities and privates with healthy endowments can afford to go online only – and do without student revenues associated with person-to-person classes and campus life – other schools face catastrophe without outside revenues. To survive, financially vulnerable colleges need to cut down on expenses, seek relief funds from the government and increase enrollment for online classes while lowering costs. (Business Insider)

Latest research news

  • Children younger than 5 years might be important drivers of COVID-19 spread, having higher viral loads than older children and adults. A study of SARS-CoV-2 reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction finds that young kids with mild to moderate disease have high amounts of viral RNA in their nasopharynx. Behavioral habits of young children and close quarters in school and day care settings pose concerns as public health restrictions are beginning to ease. (Taylor Heald-Sargent et al. JAMA Pediatrics)
  • More people are reporting persistent COVID-19 damage to lungs and limbs. The ailments are more challenging because patients say they often face skeptical families, friends, employers and even doctors. (USA Today)
  • The final last phase of testing begins for COVID-19 vaccines developed by Pfizer and Moderna, in collaboration with the National Institutes of Health, with 30,000 participants. (The Washington Post)
  • A randomized, three-group, controlled trial involving hospitalized patients with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 found that among patients hospitalized with mild-to-moderate disease, the use of hydroxychloroquine, alone or with azithromycin, did not improve clinical outcomes at 15 days as compared with standard care. (Alexandre B. Cavalcanti et al. The New England Journal of Medicine)
  • A study of 14,000 members of an Israeli HMO who were tested for SARS-CoV2 infection from February 1st to April 30th, 2020, and who had at least one previous blood test for plasma vitamin D levels found that low plasma vitamin D levels were associated with an increased likelihood of COVID-19 infection and of hospitalization due to COVID-19.

Eligibility for the funding is based on a formula for hospitals with over 161 COVID-19 admissions between January 1 and June 10, 2020, or one admission per day, or hospitals experiencing above the average ratio of COVID admissions per bed. Hospitals will be paid $50,000 per eligible admission. See the CDC’s Provider Relief Fund Data here.

  • The final last phase of testing begins for COVID-19 vaccines developed by Pfizer and Moderna, in collaboration with the National Institutes of Health, with 30,000 participants. (The Washington Post)
  • A randomized, three-group, controlled trial involving hospitalized patients with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 found that among patients hospitalized with mild-to-moderate disease, the use of hydroxychloroquine, alone or with azithromycin, did not improve clinical outcomes at 15 days as compared with standard care. (Alexandre B. Cavalcanti et al. The New England Journal of Medicine)
  • A study of 14,000 members of an Israeli HMO who were tested for SARS-CoV2 infection from February 1st to April 30th, 2020, and who had at least one previous blood test for plasma vitamin D levels found that low plasma vitamin D levels were associated with an increased likelihood of COVID-19 infection and of hospitalization due to COVID-19. (Eugene Merzon et al. MedRxiv)
  • A comparative study of asymptomatic and symptomatic coronavirus patients in South Korea shows that the neutralizing antibody titer correlates with the severity of the disease. This suggests that patients with more severe disease might be more protected against reinfection and those with asymptomatic or mild disease could be more vulnerable to waning immunity over time, because the initial immune response was not as strong. (Pyoeng Gyun Choe et al. CDC Emerging Infectious Diseases)
  • Patients with coronavirus disease are at increased risk of thrombosis. Among 3,334 patients hospitalized in New York City, a thrombotic event occurred in 16 percent of the cases. Associated variables include age, sex, Hispanic ethnicity, coronary artery disease, and prior myocardial infarction. (Seda Bilaloglu et al. JAMA)
  • The true number of coronavirus cases in the U.S. could be anywhere from six to 24 times higher than the confirmed number of cases, depending on location, according to a study that relied on antibody test data from 10 sites. (STAT, Fiona P. Havers et al. JAMA Internal Medicine)

Policy

  • With the fall semester weeks away, universities need to reconsider the health risks of in-class instruction for students, faculty and staff. While some state universities and privates with healthy endowments can afford to go online only – and do without student revenues associated with person-to-person classes and campus life – other schools face catastrophe without outside revenues. To survive, financially vulnerable colleges need to cut down on expenses, seek relief funds from the government and increase enrollment for online classes while lowering costs. (Business Insider)
  • The Republican coronavirus relief plan includes enhanced unemployment insurance based on approximately 70 percent wage replacement. Congress faces pressure to pass an aid package as COVID-19 cases and deaths surge, and the $600 per week unemployment benefit expires at the end of the month. (CNBC)
  • A federal moratorium that has protected millions of renters from eviction since late March expires this Friday, leaving about 12.3 million households at risk. The expiration of the federal protection nears as state and local eviction bans also start to expire, and enhanced federal unemployment benefits are scheduled to end. (The Washington Post)
  • The COVID-19 pandemic is threatening the solvency of Medicare. Congress dipped into Medicare’s reserves to help fund the COVID-19 relief efforts this spring, while payroll taxes are shrinking, and more retirees claiming benefits. The Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics at the University of Pennsylvania estimates the Trust Fund could become insolvent as early as 2022 or 2023.

  • The Food and Drug Administration has given Quest Diagnostics emergency approval for a new approach to coronavirus testing that combines test samples in batches, instead of running them one by one, thereby speeding up the process. A negative result would clear everyone in the batch. A positive result would require each sample to be individually retested. (The Associated Press)

  • A study of contact tracing of COVID-19 patients in South Korea shows that the highest rate of transmission within a household occurred among patients 10 to 19 years of age. Within this group, 18.6 percent of contacts were infected with COVID-19. The average infection rate for all groups was 11.8 percent. (Young Joon Park et al. CDC)
  • A study in primates re-infected with the identical SARS-CoV-2 strain suggests that primary SARS-CoV-2 exposure protects against subsequent reinfection in rhesus macaque. The experiment during the early recovery phase of initial SARS-CoV-2 infection did not detect a viral dissemination, clinical manifestations of the disease, or histopathological changes. Comparison of the humoral and cellular immunity between primary infection and re-infection reveals notably enhanced neutralizing antibodies and immune responses. (Wei Deng et al. Science)

  • A study in primates re-infected with the identical SARS-CoV-2 strain suggests that primary SARS-CoV-2 exposure protects against subsequent reinfection in rhesus macaque. The experiment during the early recovery phase of initial SARS-CoV-2 infection did not detect a viral dissemination, clinical manifestations of the disease, or histopathological changes. Comparison of the humoral and cellular immunity between primary infection and re-infection reveals notably enhanced neutralizing antibodies and immune responses. (Wei Deng et al. Science)
  • A study of air traffic and commuting patterns shows that international travel drove introduction of the coronavirus in the West and East Coast metropolitan areas as early as December 2019. For most of the continental states, the largest contribution of imported infections arrived through domestic travel flows. (Jessica T. Davis et al. medRxiv)
  • A study finds that virus-specific T cells induced by betacoronavirus infection are long-lasting, supporting the notion that COVID-19 patients will develop long-term T cell immunity. The findings also raise the intriguing possibility that long-lasting T cells generated following infection with related viruses may be able to protect against, or modify the pathology caused by, SARS-CoV-2 infection.

Policy

  • The Department of Health and Human Services will soon begin distributing an additional $10 billion to hospitals experiencing high impact COVID-19 hospitalizations as part of the Provider Relief Fund. Eligibility for the funding is based on a formula for hospitals with over 161 COVID-19 admissions between January 1 and June 10, 2020, or one admission per day, or hospitals experiencing above the average ratio of COVID admissions per bed. Hospitals will be paid $50,000 per eligible admission. See the CDC’s Provider Relief Fund Data here.
  • The Food and Drug Administration has given Quest Diagnostics emergency approval for a new approach to coronavirus testing that combines test samples in batches, instead of running them one by one, thereby speeding up the process. A negative result would clear everyone in the batch. A positive result would require each sample to be individually retested. (The Associated Press)
  • The White House has mandated that hospitals sidestep the CDC and send critical information about COVID-19 hospitalizations and equipment to a new federal database hosted by the Department of Health and Human Services, which oversees the CDC. The policy shift has received a mixed reaction, with some states calling for a delay in policy implementation to allow time to prepare for the transition. Others have called for the policy change to be outright reversed. (NPR, CNBC)
  • COVID-19 diagnostic tests range from $20 to $850 per single test, not including the price of a provider visit, facility fee, specimen collection, or any other test that might have been included during testing. These services may be covered by insurance, but it is not guaranteed for all patients. In many cases, the prices exceed what Medicare pays for COVID-19 testing. (Kaiser Family Foundation)
  • The S. House Budget Committee held a hearing last week on the federal government’s responsibility to invest in modern technology as part of the response to the public health crisis. To extend high speed internet to underserved and hard to reach communities, the House passed theMoving Forward Act, a comprehensive infrastructure package that includes $100 billion in broadband funding.
  • Polling shows that three in five Americans disapprove of President Trump’s handling of the pandemic, with the majority holding the president responsible for an ineffective response to the crisis. As new cases surge, more respondents say that the worst is yet to come and that we need more aggressive social distancing. Some 42 percent of the surveyed know someone who has been infected. (Navigator, Global Strategy Group)

Latest research news

  • The true number of coronavirus cases in the U.S. could be anywhere from six to 24 times higher than the confirmed number of cases, depending on location, according to a study that relied on antibody test data from 10 sites. (STAT, Fiona P. Havers et al. JAMA Internal Medicine)
  • A study of contact tracing of COVID-19 patients in South Korea shows that the highest rate of transmission within a household occurred among patients 10 to 19 years of age. Within this group, 18.6 percent of contacts were infected with COVID-19. The average infection rate for all groups was 11.8 percent. (Young Joon Park et al. CDC)

  • Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine led patients to produce more neutralizing antibodies than have been seen in most patients who have recovered from COVID-19, according to the first published data from an early-stage trial of the experimental shot. A second injection, four weeks after the first, is required before the vaccine produces a dramatic immune response. The data roughly mirror the results from a similar vaccine being produced by Pfizer and BioNTech, which were released July 1. (STAT)

Policy

  • Polling shows that three in five Americans disapprove of President Trump’s handling of the pandemic, with the majority holding the president responsible for an ineffective response to the crisis. As new cases surge, more respondents say that the worst is yet to come and that we need more aggressive social distancing. Some 42 percent of the surveyed know someone who has been infected. (Navigator, Global Strategy Group)
  • Despite political leaders trivializing the pandemic, deaths are rising again: The seven-day average for deaths per day has now jumped by more than 200 since July 6, according to data compiled by the COVID Tracking Project at The Atlantic. By the project’s count, states reported 855 deaths Thursday, in line with the recent elevated numbers in mid-July. (The Atlantic)
  • Children under 18 in Latino communities are testing positive at higher rates than other groups of children in California. Latino minors make up 67 percent of the cases where race/ethnicity is known, despite being only 48 percent of the state’s population of kids. Close contact with essential workers and crowded living conditions play a role. (CalMatters)
  • The Department of Homeland Security and ICE have rescinded a much-opposed ruling barring international students who only take online courses from obtaining visa or staying in the United States, a rare reversal by the government on immigration policy. The fight against the visa rule brought together a large coalition of governments, colleges and businesses. (Wall Street Journal) Claremont Graduate University joined other universities in legal action against the federal decision.
  • The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) data shows loan distribution anomalies in amounts and recipients of the loan, with discrepancies casting doubts about effectiveness of the $2.2 trillion relief package. Program implementation critics point to the lack of demographic data that would allow prioritizing loans to undeserved and rural areas as Congress intended. (Bloomberg)
  • Los Angeles and San Diego public schools will start the school year remote-only in August, while New York City schools will reopen with a partial in-class attendance. The school decisions come amid pressure from the federal government to open and from local teacher unions to stay remote. (NPR)

Latest research news

  • A study of air traffic and commuting patterns shows that international travel drove introduction of the coronavirus in the West and East Coast metropolitan areas as early as December 2019. For most of the continental states, the largest contribution of imported infections arrived through domestic travel flows. (Jessica T. Davis et al. medRxiv)
  • A study finds that virus-specific T cells induced by betacoronavirus infection are long-lasting, supporting the notion that COVID-19 patients will develop long-term T cell immunity. The findings also raise the intriguing possibility that long-lasting T cells generated following infection with related viruses may be able to protect against, or modify the pathology caused by, SARS-CoV-2 infection. (Nina Le Bert et al. Nature)
  • Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine led patients to produce more neutralizing antibodies than have been seen in most patients who have recovered from COVID-19, according to the first published datafrom an early-stage trial of the experimental shot. A second injection, four weeks after the first, is required before the vaccine produces a dramatic immune response. The data roughly mirror the results from a similar vaccine being produced by Pfizer and BioNTech, which were released July 1. (STAT)
  • A study of some 8,400 men and women ages 18 to 25 concludes that overall medical vulnerability of young adults to more severe coronavirus infection is 33 percent for males and 30 percent for females. Tobacco and cigar use, including e-cigarettes, are associated with adverse effects on respiratory and immune function, in addition to other common health risks. (UC San Francisco)

Analyzed genome sequences of the virus that were distinct from viral genomes previously circulating in the area allowed contact tracers to successfully identify the source. (Jingtao Liu et al. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)
  • Publicly reported deaths from COVID-19 might underestimate the pandemic’s real toll. A study estimates that out of 87,001 excess deaths between March 1, 2020, and April 25, 2020, about 65 percent (56,246 cases) might be attributed to COVID-19. (Steven H. Woolf et al. JAMA)

Policy

  • Los Angeles and San Diego public schools will start the school year remote-only in August, while New York City schools will reopen with a partial in-class attendance. The school decisions come amid pressure from the federal government to open and from local teacher unions to stay remote. (NPR)
  • Some 8,000 California state prisoners could be eligible for early release by the end of August in an effort to quell coronavirus infections in facilities. Individuals who are 30 and over, and who meet the eligibility criteria, could be immediately considered for release. (KQED)
  • Scientists propose that an anti-COVID-19 shot containing plasma-based antibodies of coronavirus survivors could stem the virus for months. But the federal government and pharmaceutical companies are hesitant to invest in a technology that will be outdated by the arrival of a vaccine. (Forbes)
  • Coronavirus testing remains sparse in many low-income and minority communities, with limited information about the race and ethnicity of tested populations. Federal guidance requires laboratories to report race and ethnicity, along with age, sex, and ZIP code, to the government alongside COVID-19 test results starting August 1. (Science)
  • United Teachers Los Angeles call for campuses in the LA Unified School District to remain closed in the fall, while resuming distance learning. School officials have yet to decide on reopening. If it happens, the district would offer two options: a learning-from-home program and a hybrid plan combining learning at home with part-time class attendance. (Los Angeles Times)
  • Colleges and universities scrambled Wednesday to understand federal guidance requiring F-1 students attending schools holding online only classes this fall to either leave the United States, or transfer to schools offering in-person or a combination of online and in-person courses. Harvard University and MIT filed a lawsuit against the plan, which would bar hundreds of thousands of international students from studying in the United States (Boston Globe). The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Boston, claims the guidelines are intended to force them to reopen for in-person classes, even if conditions are believed not safe.

Latest research news

  • A study of some 8,400 men and women ages 18 to 25 concludes that overall medical vulnerability of young adults to more severe coronavirus infection is 33 percent for males and 30 percent for females. Tobacco and cigar use, including e-cigarettes, are associated with adverse effects on respiratory and immune function, in addition to other common health risks. (UC San Francisco)
  • A study traces a case of an asymptomatic person in China causing a cluster outbreak of more than 71 cases in the local community through an elevator button. Analyzed genome sequences of the virus that were distinct from viral genomes previously circulating in the area allowed contact tracers to successfully identify the source. (Jingtao Liu et al. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)
  • Publicly reported deaths from COVID-19 might underestimate the pandemic’s real toll. A study estimates that out of 87,001 excess deaths between March 1, 2020, and April 25, 2020, about 65 percent (56,246 cases) might be attributed to COVID-19. (Steven H. Woolf et al. JAMA)
  • Studies suggest that synthetic interferons given before or soon after infection may tame the coronavirus before it causes serious damage. Interferons, which are powerful proteins protecting the body against viral invasion, might help COVID-19 patients with mild cases and people who are not sick but might have been exposed to the virus. (Meredith Wadman Science)
  • A comparative analysis of morphologic and molecular changes in peripheral lungs of patients who died from COVID-19 and influenza A(H1N1) shows diffuse alveolar damage with perivascular T-cell infiltration in both diseases. COVID-19 patients additionally suffer severe endothelial injury associated with the presence of intracellular virus and disrupted cell membranes, as well as widespread thrombosis with microangiopathy. (Maximilian Ackermann et al. The New England Journal of Medicine)
  • In a subset of six patients confirmed to be positive for SARS-CoV2 infection with RT-PCR, changes in the T cell population were documented, evident by an alteration of CD4:CD8 ratio, likely due to suppression of the CD4 population and activation of the cytotoxic CD8+T cell population.

Latest research news

  • A comparative analysis of morphologic and molecular changes in peripheral lungs of patients who died from COVID-19 and influenza A(H1N1) shows diffuse alveolar damage with perivascular T-cell infiltration in both diseases. COVID-19 patients additionally suffer severe endothelial injury associated with the presence of intracellular virus and disrupted cell membranes, as well as widespread thrombosis with microangiopathy. (Maximilian Ackermann et al. The New England Journal of Medicine)
  • In a subset of six patients confirmed to be positive for SARS-CoV2 infection with RT-PCR, changes in the T cell population were documented, evident by an alteration of CD4:CD8 ratio, likely due to suppression of the CD4 population and activation of the cytotoxic CD8+T cell population. (Fahad Khan et al. Journal of Hematopathology)
  • A study of pregnant women admitted to hospitals in the U.K. with severe COVID-19 found that most were in their second or third trimester, underscoring the importance of social distancing later in pregnancy. Most women had good outcomes and transmission of SARS-CoV2 to infants was uncommon; 56 percent of women were black or from other ethnic minority groups and 69 percent were overweight or obese. (Marian Knight et al. The BMJ)
  • A study of 2,541 patients shows that early treatment with hydroxychloroquine combined with azithromycin reduced mortality without heart-related side-effects. The findings differ from other studies that were based on later intervention and different dosing. (Samia Arshad et al. International Journal of Infectious Diseases)
  • Recovery, a British coronavirus megatrial with hundreds of participating hospitals, reports no significant difference in the death rate for 1,596 patients treated with a combination of the antivirals lopinavir and ritonavir, and that of a control group of 3,376 patients who received only standard care. (Science)
  • Autopsies of COVID-19 patients confirm the virus appears to attack the lungs the most ferociously. Researchers also found the pathogen in parts of the brain, kidneys, liver, gastrointestinal tract and spleen and in the endothelial cells that line blood vessels, as some had previously suspected. Pathologists also found widespread clotting in many organs. (The Washington Post)
  • At the start of the pandemic, researchers at Johns Hopkins’s Coronavirus Resource Center broke new ground in data utilization, technology, and methodology tracking the global spread of the coronavirus by region, country, and into highly localized levels. For those looking closely, the Hopkins project does lay out a clearly legible story about American life today, one involving economic inequality, racial disparities and poor access to health care.

Policy

  • International students cannot maintain F-1 and M-1 visas for the fall 2020 semester while taking fully online course loads, federal officials announced The State Department will not issue visas to students enrolled in schools and programs that are fully online for the fall semester, nor will these students be permitted to enter the United States. The New York Times sees a White House effort to pressure universities into reopening and abandoning cautious approaches to reduce COVID-19 transmission.
  • With apparent White House support, expectations are rising for further direct payments in the next stimulus bill. The package will target employment, businesses, and likely include new direct payments to individuals. (Forbes)
  • The S. Department of Health and Human Services has an agreement with Gilead Sciences to secure large supplies of the drug remdesivir through September. Remdesivir, the first authorized therapeutic for COVID-19, will be allocated directly to hospitals based on their disease burden, per state allocation decisions.
  • On July 4, President Trump extended the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), established to support small businesses in response to COVID-19 through August 8.
  • Bold actions by central banks addressing market stresses stemming from COVID-19 have boosted market sentiment, including in emerging markets. However, high levels of debt may become unmanageable, testing bank resilience in some countries. (IMF)

The report, prepared by GOP staffers to the Energy and Commerce Committee, addresses efforts to speed development of vaccines and therapeutics. See COVID-19 Second Wave Preparedness, Part 2 here.
  • With coronavirus infections spiking in the U.S., a new high of 65 percent of Americans say the coronavirus situation is getting worse – an almost 20 percent increase from the preceding week. A partisan gap shows 90 percent of Democrats, 63 percent of independents and 28 percent of Republicans believe the situation is getting worse. A majority of Republicans, 54 percent, say the situation is getting better. (Gallup)

Policy

  • With coronavirus infections spiking in the U.S., a new high of 65 percent of Americans say the coronavirus situation is getting worse – an almost 20 percent increase from the preceding week. A partisan gap shows 90 percent of Democrats, 63 percent of independents and 28 percent of Republicans believe the situation is getting worse. A majority of Republicans, 54 percent, say the situation is getting better. (Gallup)
  • California Gov. Newsom issued an executive order Tuesday extending authorization through Sept. 30 for local governments to halt evictions for renters impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The order also extended earlier orders waiving eligibility re-determinations for Medi-Cal, for mail-in renewals of driver’s licenses and identification cards and limiting in-person transactions at the Department of Motor Vehicles. The text of the Governor’s executive order can be foundhere.
  • The United States might see 100,000 new cases of COVID-19 a day if the current trajectory of the outbreak is not changed, Dr. Anthony Fauci warned a Senate committee Tuesday. The number of new cases is currently hovering around 40,000 per day, infections in some Southern and Southwestern states increased. (STAT)
  • The U.S. Government Accountability Office stated Tuesday that four federal relief laws enacted since March have appropriated $2.6 trillion for programs addressing the COVID-19 pandemic. Six areas – Paycheck Protection Program (PPP); Economic Stabilization and Assistance to Distressed Sectors; unemployment insurance; economic impact payments; Public Health and Social Services Emergency Fund; and Coronavirus Relief Fund – account for 86 percent of the appropriations.
  • The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends returning to classrooms for in-person learning as soon as possible, because the academic, physical and mental benefits of in-class instruction outweigh the risks associated with the coronavirus. In addition, the academy stresses schools’ critical role in addressing racial and social inequity. (S. News) See COVID-19 Planning Considerations: Guidance for School Re-entry here.
  • Dr. Anthony Fauci warns that it is unlikely the U.S. will achieve herd immunity to the coronavirus if a quarter or more of the population refuses inoculation, even with a future vaccine reaching 70 percent effectiveness. (CBS News)

Latest research news

  • Recovery, a British coronavirus megatrial with hundreds of participating hospitals, reports no significant difference in the death rate for 1,596 patients treated with a combination of the antivirals lopinavir and ritonavir, and that of a control group of 3,376 patients who received only standard care. (Science)
  • Autopsies of COVID-19 patients confirm the virus appears to attack the lungs the most ferociously. Researchers also found the pathogen in parts of the brain, kidneys, liver, gastrointestinal tract and spleen and in the endothelial cells that line blood vessels, as some had previously suspected. Pathologists also found widespread clotting in many organs. (The Washington Post)
  • At the start of the pandemic, researchers at Johns Hopkins’s Coronavirus Resource Center broke new ground in data utilization, technology, and methodology tracking the global spread of the coronavirus by region, country, and into highly localized levels. For those looking closely, the Hopkins project does lay out a clearly legible story about American life today, one involving economic inequality, racial disparities and poor access to health care. (The Washington Post)
  • A surveillance study of acute neurological and psychiatric complications of COVID-19 reports ischaemic stroke and altered mental status, reflecting both neurological and psychiatric diagnoses, such as encephalitis and psychosis. Altered mental status is identified across all age groups, especially among younger patients. (Aravinthan Varatharaj et al. The Lancet)
  • MIT Press and the University of California, Berkeley are launching a new COVID-19 journal, one that will peer review preprint articles. The Rapid Reviews: COVID-19journal will be led by Stefano Bertozzi, professor of health policy and management at the UC Berkeley School of Public Health. The Rapid Reviews team will select and review already-published preprint articles, a model known as an overlay journal. (Inside Higher Ed)
  • The development of a COVID-19 vaccine is progressing at an incredible pace, breaking down barriers to the invention, manufacture, and testing of potential vaccine candidates. Ideally, vaccine trials should include participants from communities that have the highest risk of infection. To match the local demographics of COVID-19, African Americans or Latinx individuals would need to comprise up to 40 percent of vaccine trial participants nationwide. (STAT)

Latest research news

  • A surveillance study of acute neurological and psychiatric complications of COVID-19 reports ischaemic stroke and altered mental status, reflecting both neurological and psychiatric diagnoses, such as encephalitis and psychosis. Altered mental status is identified across all age groups, especially among younger patients. (Aravinthan Varatharaj et al. The Lancet)
  • MIT Press and the University of California, Berkeley are launching a new COVID-19 journal, one that will peer review preprint articles. The Rapid Reviews: COVID-19journal will be led by Stefano Bertozzi, professor of health policy and management at the UC Berkeley School of Public Health. The Rapid Reviews team will select and review already-published preprint articles, a model known as an overlay journal. (Inside Higher Ed)
  • The development of a COVID-19 vaccine is progressing at an incredible pace, breaking down barriers to the invention, manufacture, and testing of potential vaccine candidates. Ideally, vaccine trials should include participants from communities that have the highest risk of infection. To match the local demographics of COVID-19, African Americans or Latinx individuals would need to comprise up to 40 percent of vaccine trial participants nationwide. (STAT)
  • A study from China using contact tracing of COVID-19 patients estimated a secondary attack rate of 12.4 percent among close relative household contacts, and 17.1 percent among persons living at the same residential address. Compared with the age group over 60, the risk of infection was lower in the age group under 20 years. (Qin-Long Jing et al. The Lancet)
  • Population heterogeneity due to age structure and social activity level can significantly affect herd immunity. According to a mathematical model, if the basic reproduction number of coronavirus R0 is 2.5 in a heterogeneous community, the disease-induced herd immunity level can be around 43 percent, which is substantially lower than the classical herd immunity level of 60 percent obtained based on the assumption of a homogeneous mixing population. (Tom Britton et al. Science)
  • The probability of showing COVID-19 respiratory symptoms and consequent adverse clinical outcomes increases with age. A study of roughly 5,500 in Lombardy, Italy, shows that about 74 percent of infected individuals younger than 60 years did not develop symptoms. (Piero Poletti et al. ArXiv)

Policy

  • The Fed has not been sufficiently reluctant in its response to the coronavirus crisis and lockdown, far surpassing its normal activities and even those of 2008, by agreeing to lend to a broad range of businesses rather than limiting its role to supporting the financial system (Thomas L. Hogan). The Fed should follow the example set by Ben Bernanke and avoid engaging in facilities that are best resolved by Congress, that is, those balancing political and social priorities. (American Institute for Economic Research)
  • The federal government suspends issuance of H1B, H-4, H2B, J and L visas to foreign workers in response to a weakening American labor market and COVID-19 economic disruptions. See the Executive Order here.
  • Governors of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut jointly announce a 14-day quarantine restriction for individuals traveling from states experiencing an infection rate higher than 10 per 100,000 residents, or with a 10 percent or greater positivity rate over a 7-day rolling average. See video announcement here.
  • Is the United States experiencing a second wave of coronavirus? Probably not, says Nicole Gatto, Associate Professor at the CGU School of Community and Global Health, in an article by Kaiser Health News. Gatto offers that the summer increase in cases is still part of a first wave of infections, and whether there is more than one peak, as opposed to one continuous wave, depends on the behavioral response to the pandemic.
  • Unless California gets billions in federal money, state workers will lose about 10 percent of their paychecks and the two university systems will lose a combined $602 million as the state addresses shortfalls stemming from the coronavirus economic shutdown. Legislators appear reluctant to cut from K-12 education and programs serving lower-income residents. (CalMatters)
  • The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is falling short in adding public health workers and medical responders. The 1,200 workers deployed through National Disaster Medical System (NDMS) to help with the COVID-19 pandemic are only about one-fifth of the workforce target initially planned. (S. Government Accountability Office)

  • Influenza-like illness outpatient surveillance data suggests that the early COVID-19 infection rate may have been 80 times greater and doubled nearly twice as fast as originally reported. The size of the observed surge of cases that can’t be explained by influenza or other seasonal respiratory pathogens corresponds to more than 8.7 million new cases during the last three weeks of March, compared to the roughly 100,000 cases of COVID-19 that were officially reported during the same time period. (Justin D. Silverman et al. Science, and Penn State University)
  • People with blood group A face greater risks from COVID-19 infection, according to genome-wide association study of respiratory failure and severity of COVID-19. The study estimated a 45 percent greater odds of suffering more adverse outcomes in patients with blood group A compared to other blood types. The study found a protective effect for blood group O patients compared with the other blood groups. (David Ellinghaus et al. The New England Journal of Medicine)

Policy

  • Unless California gets billions in federal money, state workers will lose about 10 percent of their paychecks and the two university systems will lose a combined $602 million as the state addresses shortfalls stemming from the coronavirus economic shutdown. Legislators appear reluctant to cut from K-12 education and programs serving lower-income residents. (CalMatters)
  • The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is falling short in adding public health workers and medical responders. The 1,200 workers deployed through National Disaster Medical System (NDMS) to help with the COVID-19 pandemic are only about one-fifth of the workforce target initially planned. (S. Government Accountability Office)
  • Billing records from over 325,000 cases from January through mid-May show that individuals 65 and older, with incomes low enough to qualify for both Medicare and Medicaid coverage, were four times more likely to have been hospitalized with the coronavirus than those on Medicare alone. (Washington Post)
  • The federal government should provide greater guidance to states and localities for allocating scarce health care resources for combating COVID-19, and for creating protocols for determining clinical prognosis for short-term survival and appeals to fairness of policy. (RAND)
  • The federal government will identify businesses that received Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans, intended to help small businesses, greater than $150,000. The move responds to Congressional demands for loan transparency. (Forbes, Politico)
  • Epidemiologists warn that lockdown fatigue and economic hardship among Americans are weakening the political will to reimpose restrictions in states seeing spikes in new infections. (The Hill)
  • The national coronavirus contact tracing workforce has tripled to over 37,110 in the past six weeks. But only seven states and the District of Columbia are staffed to the level needed to contain emerging outbreaks. (NPR)

Latest research news

  • The probability of showing COVID-19 respiratory symptoms and consequent adverse clinical outcomes increases with age. A study of roughly 5,500 in Lombardy, Italy, shows that about 74 percent of infected individuals younger than 60 years did not develop symptoms. (Piero Poletti et al. ArXiv)
  • Influenza-like illness outpatient surveillance data suggests that the early COVID-19 infection rate may have been 80 times greater and doubled nearly twice as fast as originally reported. The size of the observed surge of cases that can’t be explained by influenza or other seasonal respiratory pathogens corresponds to more than 8.7 million new cases during the last three weeks of March, compared to the roughly 100,000 cases of COVID-19 that were officially reported during the same time period. (Justin D. Silverman et al. Science, and Penn State University)
  • People with blood group A face greater risks from COVID-19 infection, according to genome-wide association study of respiratory failure and severity of COVID-19. The study estimated a 45 percent greater odds of suffering more adverse outcomes in patients with blood group A compared to other blood types. The study found a protective effect for blood group O patients compared with the other blood groups. (David Ellinghaus et al. The New England Journal of Medicine)
  • Clinical symptoms manifest in 21 percent of infections among 10-to-19-year-olds, while symptoms appear in 69 percent in people over 70. Interventions aimed at children might have a relatively small benefit for reducing transmission. (Nicholas G. Davies et al. Nature)
  • The risk of dying due to COVID-19 infection is 0.6 percent for the total population, but the risk jumps to 5.6 percent for people aged 65 and older, according to a seroprevalence study that shows the time between infection and death can be as long as two months. (Nature)
  • Inexpensive and available, the steroid dexamethasone is shown to improve survival of patients with severe COVID-19, especially those needing oxygen. (STAT)

Carry tissues to grip door handles and other surfaces touched by others. And carry hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol. Sound familiar? Well, then don’t forget to do all three.

Policy

  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention this week summarized safe practices for going out in a less locked down world: Wear a cloth face covering when in public and particularly when it is difficult to stay six feet away from others. Carry tissues to grip door handles and other surfaces touched by others. And carry hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol. Sound familiar? Well, then don’t forget to do all three.
  • New York and California are taking different approaches to reopening, with New York scolding local governments for not enforcing social distancing and California encouraging counties to restart economies if they met criteria. (Reuters)
  • States face $615 billion budgetary shortfalls over the next two years due to the pandemic. States need robust federal aid to avoid making cuts in education and health care, and canceling business contracts. (Center on Budget and Policy Priorities)
  • COVID-19 poses special risks for older poll workers, with potential effects on the safety and security of elections. College-age students, facing reduced risk of infection, should be considered for roles at the polling stations. (Niskanen Center)
  • Social distancing and self-isolation are separating politicians from constituents, and from interest groups influencing public policy. Even after the COVID-19 pandemic, it will remain difficult to maintain in-person contact with federal policymakers. (Institute for Public Relations)
  • The EU economy is expected to contract by a record 7.4 percent this year. European economic recovery needs innovation and entrepreneurship across industries to ensure sustainable growth. (Dirk Jan van den Berg LSE Business Review)

Latest research news

  • Inexpensive and available, the steroid dexamethasone is shown to improve survival of patients with severe COVID-19, especially those needing oxygen. (STAT)
  • Neutralizing antibodies to coronavirus could help guide vaccine design. (Thomas F. Rogers et al. Science)
  • Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine is in second-stage trials, with final-stage trials set to begin next month on 30,000 people. (Bloomberg)
  • COVID-19 patients with underlying health conditions are six times more likely to be hospitalized – and 12 times more likely to die – than those without. The most common underlying conditions are cardiovascular disease (32 percent), diabetes (30 percent), and chronic lung disease (18 percent). Severe cases are highest among persons 80 years and older (902.0 cases per 100,000 population) and lowest among children nine and under (51.1 cases per 100,000 population).(Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)
  • A study found that patients who recover from COVID-19 without hospitalization did not have high levels of neutralizing antibody but did have recurring antibodies with potent antiviral activity specific to the receptor binding domain of SARS-CoV2, suggesting that a vaccine designed to elicit such antibodies could be effective. (Davide F. Robbiani et al. BioRxiv)
  • Scientists do not know if having antibodies to the virus that causes COVID-19 can protect someone from getting infected again or how long protection may last. See Guidance on Interpreting COVID-19 Test Results here. (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)
  • Satellite imagery of Wuhan hospital traffic and search queries of COVID-19 symptom terms suggest that the virus might have been circulating in China in late summer or early fall 2019. (Harvard Medical School)

Additional Information

COVID-19 restrictions have eliminated some 30 percent of jobs in Los Angeles County, affecting 1.2 million workers. Losses have been most acute for lower wage industries, with roughly one in three lost jobs coming from industries with median pay under $30,000 per year. (Paul Bogaardt et al. IPRC Working Paper)

State and federal unemployment benefits provide many eligible individuals earning less than $50,000 a year with benefits exceeding their income. Higher income earners experience reduced monthly earnings. (Paul Bogaardt et al. IPRC Working Paper)

Additional Information

COVID-19 restrictions have eliminated some 30 percent of jobs in Los Angeles County, affecting 1.2 million workers. Losses have been most acute for lower wage industries, with roughly one in three lost jobs coming from industries with median pay under $30,000 per year. (Paul Bogaardt et al. IPRC Working Paper)

State and federal unemployment benefits provide many eligible individuals earning less than $50,000 a year with benefits exceeding their income. Higher income earners experience reduced monthly earnings. (Paul Bogaardt et al. IPRC Working Paper)

  • Medicaid is a crucial safety net for low-income and unemployed Americans during the pandemic, with estimates projecting that at least 18 million additional Americans possibly joining the ranks of the uninsured. The best way to mitigate a COVID-19 induced explosion of the uninsured is to expand Medicare programs under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), especially in the non-expansion states. (The Progressive Policy Institute)
  • Polling shows 69 percent approval of Gov. Newsom’s handling of the coronavirus outbreak, and 59 percent approve of his handling of jobs and the economy. Forty-six percent of adults say the state budget is a major problem, while 60 percent say the Governor’s plan should not include a tax increase. (Public Policy Institute of California)
  • The COVID-19 pandemic and current economic crisis have exacerbated racial inequities and their impact on communities of color. Health disparities indicate broader underlying social and economic inequities in housing, education, employment, and the justice system. (Kaiser Family Foundation)
  • The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s inspections of foreign drug manufacturers and highlighted the importance of ensuring a safe pharmaceutical supply chain. More than 70 percent of facilities that make active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), and more than 50 percent of sites manufacturing finished drugs for the U.S. market, are located overseas. (Government Accountability Office)
  • The mass protests across the United States will likely result in new cases of COVID-19, though it will be difficult to distinguish between cases stemming from protests and those resulting from relaxed social-distancing rules. (The Atlantic)
  • The economic and physical well-being of black Americans is exacerbated by the current pandemic. High unemployment, poverty, low wages and low savings are likely to prolong the effects of the pandemic on black workers and their families long after the immediate threat has passed. (Economic Policy Institute)

Latest research news

  • A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in the US and Canada found that hydroxychloroquine use as a postexposure prophylaxis among persons with high- or moderate-risk exposure to COVID-19 did not prevent subsequent illness or infection. (David R. Boulware et al. The New England Journal of Medicine)
  • Eli Lilly begins a Phase I clinical trial in the US of LY-CoV555, a potential monoclonal antibody therapy designed to block viral attachment and entry into human cells. (Eli Lilly)
  • A WHO-funded meta-analysis of 172 observational studies of patients with SARS, MERS or COVID-19 across 16 countries and six continents found that viral transmission was lower with physical distancing of 1 m or more, and that face mask use could result in a large reduction in infection risk, with stronger associations with N95 or similar respirators. (Derek K. Chu et al. The Lancet)
  • Scientists want an open peer-review process and release of hospital data showing the effects of the antimalarial drugs chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine for treating COVID-19 patients. (Science)
  • Analysis of racial and ethnic differences in clinical outcomes from COVID-19 in Louisiana shows that race is not independently associated with higher in-hospital mortality, after adjustment for differences in socio-demographic and clinical characteristics on admission. (The New England Journal of Medicine)
  • Coronavirus is likely to enter the body through the nose. The use of masks and preventative measures, such as nasal cleansing, can help prevent disease spread. (Yixuan J. Hou et al. Cell)

Additional Information

COVID-19 restrictions have eliminated some 30 percent of jobs in Los Angeles County, affecting 1.2 million workers. Losses have been most acute for lower wage industries, with roughly one in three lost jobs coming from industries with median pay under $30,000 per year. (Paul Bogaardt et al. IPRC Working Paper)

State and federal unemployment benefits provide many eligible individuals earning less than $50,000 a year with benefits exceeding their income. Higher income earners experience reduced monthly earnings. (Paul Bogaardt et al. IPRC Working Paper)

  • After spending weeks accusing the World Health Organization of helping the Chinese government cover up the early days of the coronavirus epidemic in China, President Trump announced that the United States would terminate its relationship with the agency. Reaction to the announcement was skeptical to the claims of any cover up and included doubts whether the president had the legal authority to make such a move. The United States has been by far WHO’s largest donor since its inception. The budget for the organization is about $6 billion, and in 2019 the United States contributed about $553 million.

  • Academic institutions are conducting less research and development during the pandemic, to the detriment of the higher education and the economy. Greater coordination is needed across education, government, health, and the private sector to maintain research and create solutions for recovery. (Science)
  • Grassroots testing in San Francisco’s Mission District shows that highest rates of infection occurred among persons of Hispanic/Latinx ethnicity,low-wage essential workers and those living in households with three or more people. (STAT) (UC San Francisco)
  • There are currently 10 vaccines in human clinical trials and 115 candidates in pre-clinical trial stages worldwide. (World Health Organization)
  • The federal government seeks to transfer main responsibility for coronavirus testing, contact tracing, and surveillance of asymptomatic persons to the states, while promising to provide some medical supplies. (The Associated Press)
  • California seeks to allow statewide mail-in voting in November to help stem spread of COVID-19. The Republican National Committee has filed a lawsuit against California, arguing for confidence in security of the vote. (Axios)

Additional Information

COVID-19 restrictions have eliminated some 30 percent of jobs in Los Angeles County, affecting 1.2 million workers. Losses have been most acute for lower wage industries, with roughly one in three lost jobs coming from industries with median pay under $30,000 per year. (Paul Bogaardt et al. IPRC Working Paper)

State and federal unemployment benefits provide many eligible individuals earning less than $50,000 a year with benefits exceeding their income. Higher income earners experience reduced monthly earnings. (Paul Bogaardt et al. IPRC Working Paper)


Policy

  • The federal government seeks to transfer main responsibility for coronavirus testing, contact tracing, and surveillance of asymptomatic persons to the states, while promising to provide some medical supplies. (The Associated Press)
  • California seeks to allow statewide mail-in voting in November to help stem spread of COVID-19. The Republican National Committee has filed a lawsuit against California, arguing for confidence in security of the vote. (Axios)
  • COVID-19 worsens pre-existing financial vulnerabilities in global credit markets, emerging markets and banks. Should the ongoing economic contraction last longer or be deeper, financial conditions are at risk of deteriorating into a financial crisis. (International Monetary Fund) See Global Financial Stability Report here.
  • Small businesses are challenged to meet fixed operating costs such as rent, mortgage payments and insurance. Businesses need clear rules and coordinated responses across governments to reopen from the epidemic effectively. (RAND)
  • Programmers and other digital technologists bring code to bear against the novel coronavirus. New anti-COVID-19 tools and technologies must be fully accessible to everyone, while respecting digital privacy and personal autonomy. (Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation)
  • In addition to widespread job losses and reductions in work hours, families with children face challenges related to school and childcare closures necessitated by the pandemic, with growing disparities by family income and race/ethnicity. (Urban Institute)

  • Biotech company Moderna reports initial promising results from a vaccine. Still, researchers remain distant from a vaccine by November. (Kaiser Health News)
  • Without effective control measures, strong outbreaks of coronavirus are likely in more humid climates, and summer will not substantially constrain the pandemic. Population immunity is key to limiting the pandemic. (Rachel E. Baker et al. Science)
  • COVID-19 severity corelates with patient age, lymphocytopenia, and cytokine storm. Viral genetic evolution does not significantly affect clinical outcomes. (Nature)
  • An antibody identified in the blood from a patient who recovered from SARS in 2003 has been shown experimentally to neutralize SARS-CoV2. (SciTechDaily)
  • An ecological study that included data from more than 3,000 US counties found that COVID-19 death rates were higher in areas with greater long-term exposure to particulate matter (PM5). (Xiao Wu et al. Harvard University)

  • An ecological study that included data from more than 3,000 US counties found that COVID-19 death rates were higher in areas with greater long-term exposure to particulate matter (PM5). (Xiao Wu et al. Harvard University)
  • Studying large COVID-19 clusters is difficult. Many countries have not collected the kind of detailed contact tracing data needed. And effective shutdowns have impeded researchers attempting to study superspreading events. (Science)
  • Americans who rely on the White House coronavirus task force for news coverage negatively assess media and are more likely to downplay the pandemic. (Pew Research Center)
  • Medical examiners are stepping up postmortem testing to determine whether non-hospital deaths are related to coronavirus. (Kaiser Health News)
  • An analysis of labor market responses to shut-down policies shows the coronavirus is not a great economic equalizer. Low-income and low-educated individuals face the poorer labor outcomes and suffer higher psychological costs. (Centre for Economic Policy Research)
  • Change points in the spread of coronavirus infections correlate with announcements of mitigation and containment strategies. Government interventions, such as cancellation of large events, closing of schools and non-essential businesses, as well as social distancing, are needed to stop exponential growth of novel cases. (Jonas Dehning et al. Science)
  • Predictions of state-level cumulative COVID-19 deaths vary depending on assumptions about social distancing and other interventions. CDC compares researchers’ forecasts to get a handle on predictions for the next four weeks. (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)
