During these uncertain times, we at Creative Loafing want you — our readers and supporters — to know that we are here to help. As the world continues the struugle to adapt to the threat of the novel Coronavirus, it is apparent that life will no longer be “business as usual” for any of us. Nevertheless, we are confident that those in Atlanta with such great entrepreneurial spirit will meet this challenge to cope with the pandemic and present food, music, arts, and culture in safe and creative ways.

As this is an ever-evolving situation, we will be working continuously to update this page, and our guides, as the global coronavirus pandemic changes business realities in our city, state, and country

Flatten the curve.

Be safe. Be healthy. Wash your hands.

There are now 2,827,125 individuals in the United States that have been tracked with having encountered COVID-19 to-date.

Here is today’s update on the 2,827,125 individuals in the U.S. that have been diagnosed with COVID-19 to-date and their break down in terms of status as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 1,177,050 cases or 41.6% of the 2,827,125 total cases, 41.6% yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. with 14-DAY NATIONAL RECOVERY TIME — 1,521,931 individuals or 53.8% of the total 2,827,125 individuals, 53.8% yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 128,144 deaths or 4.6% of the total 2,827,125 cases, 4.6% yesterday.


While new cases grew by 54,904 in the past 24 hours the total number of ACTIVE cases increased by 29,488 cases, offset by the number of active cases moving into RECOVERY.

The four states with the most new cases posted the highest counts and account for 50.2% of the new cases:

*California — 6,314 new cases in past 24 hours, 9,352 yesterday
*Texas — 7,343 new cases in past 24 hours, 7,535 yesterday
*Florida — 9,488 new cases in past 24 hours, 10,109 yesterday
*Arizona — 4,433 new cases in past 24 hours, 3,333 yesterday.


The five southeastern states that have been identified previously as experiencing a rise in COVID-19 cases account for an additional 17.0% of the new cases. The share of new cases that these states represent continues to grow:

*Georgia — 2,784 new cases in the past 24 hours, 3,472 yesterday
*South Carolina — 1,831 new cases in the past 24 hours, 1,782 yesterday
*North Carolina — 2,054 new cases in the past 24 hours, 1,855 yesterday
*Alabama — 1,754 new cases in the past 24 hours, 1,149  yesterday
*Mississippi — 914 new cases in past 24 hours, 870 yesterday.


Here is where the four early case states are in new cases:

*New York — 1,134 new cases in past 24 hours, 1,035 yesterday
*New Jersey — 306 new cases in past 24 hours, 415 yesterday
*Massachusetts — 290 new cases in past 24 hours, 195 yesterday.
*Michigan — 497 new cases in past 24 hours, 582 yesterday.


The number of deaths either directly or indirectly linked to COVID-19 totaled 616 as of 12:01 a.m. today compared to the 676 deaths posted yesterday. The increase in new cases that started to climb more than a week ago are having limited, if any impact, on the number of deaths resulting from COVID-19.

The number of “critical/serious” cases grew by 32 cases across the U.S. — 15,928 cases as of 12:01 a.m. today. The increase in new cases that started to climb more than a week ago are having limited, if any impact, on the number of “critical/serious” cases resulting from COVID-19.

The number of fully-recovered — as defined in national U.S. tracking based on a consistent 14-day time period along with testing at the end of 14-days — now totals over 1.5 million at 1,521,931 individuals as of 12:01 a.m. this morning, an increase of 24,800 individuals.

For the local Greater Athens area, here are the numbers from 12:01 a.m. ET this morning compared to the numbers shared on Thursday in advance of the July 4th travel:

INSERT Athens-area chart 7_04:

And a word to fellow Athenians. While you might hear about the coronavirus frat parties and the increase of positive cases among “students,” even here in the shadows of the oldest state university in the United States, the majority of new active cases are taking place among individuals age 55+ and a hard-working labor base of mostly Hispanic-Latinos age 25-44. Take a moment this 4th of July weekend and reach out to the local Food Banks and Hispanic-Latino outreach programs.

Enjoy this Fourth of July Holiday weekend. We still reside in the greatest nation in the world.

There are now 2,772,221 individuals in the United States that have been tracked with having encountered COVID-19 to-date.

There is an increase in cases. The cases are concentrated in a very defined set of states, and, within each core state, the cases are defined to specific ZIP-Codes within key cities like Miami-Dade County, Houston, Phoenix, LA, Atlanta, Raleigh-Durham, Richmond, and Columbia-Charleston.

Here is the update of of percentages of the 2,772,221 individuals in the U.S. that have been diagnosed with COVID-19 to-date and how they break down in terms of status as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning:

*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. with 14-DAY NATIONAL RECOVERY TIME —53.8% of the total 2,772,221 individuals or 1,492,443 individuals as of 12:01 a.m. ET, 54.2% yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 4.6% of the total 2,772,221 cases today or 127,528 deaths as of 12:01a.m. ET, 4.7% yesterday.
The four states with the most new cases — California, Texas, Florida and Arizona — posted the highest counts and account for 53.0% of the new cases. The share of new cases that these states represent is growing:

*Florida — 10,109 new cases in past 24 hours, 6,563 yesterday
*Arizona — 3,333 new cases in past 24 hours, 4,877 yesterday.


Here is a breakdown of the total cases tracked in each of these top four states as tracked by The COVID Tracking Project and organized by The Atlantic Monthly Group by race/ethnicity as issued at 7 a.m. this morning:

The number of deaths either directly or indirectly linked to COVID-19 totaled 687 as of 12:01 a.m. today compared to 676 deaths that posted yesterday.

The number of “critical/serious” cases has not increased… in fact it is lower in the past 7 days than it was in the previous 7 days — 15,896 cases as of 12:01 a.m. today.

The number of fully-recovered, as defined in national U.S. tracking based on a consistent 14-day time period along with testing at the end of 14-days, now totals 1,492,443 individuals as of 12:01 a.m. today — an increase of 22,482 individuals.

FYI, there is a new campaign running on top cable networks in prime time television to secure donations of serum from COVID-19 survivors. The ads I have seen ran on HGTV, USA, DIY-TV and Food Network.

There are now 2,714,985 individuals in the United States that have been tracked with having encountered COVID-19 to-date.The current “hit rate” ratio of the number of tests conducted in the U.S. (34.8 million) and number of individuals identified with COVID-19 in the U.S. (2.7 million) is 13:1. In the past two days, 1,666,129 new COVID-19 tests have been conducted. and 97,139 new COVID-19 cases have been detected. That translates to a hit rate of 17:1 in the past two days. There is a delay in when a test is administered and when the results come back, but since its true on both sets of numbers, they remain comparative.Here is todays update of the percentages of those2,573,112 individuals in the U.S. that have been diagnosed with COVID-19 to-date and how they break down in terms of status as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning:

For the local Athenians reading this… I hear a lot of concern about what is taking place in Greater Athens — with some folks I speak to thinking that the active cases in Greater Athens has doubled.  Here is an update of the Athens numbers that I posted last Saturday:

There are now 2,663,888 individuals in the United States that have been tracked with having encountered COVID-19 to-date.

The mainstream media elects to share the total number of individuals who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 since it was first discovered in the United States in the beginning of 2020 rather than report current active cases. When a person contracts the coronavirus and develops COVID-19, the coronavirus stays active — in that the coronavirus can be passed from their body to others — for five to six days. Individuals identified as active with COVID-19 are asked to remain quarantined for 14 days. After that time period, they cannot pass COVID-19 to others. This is shared to help explain to readers the numbers I track and report versus what is reported in mainstream media.

The actual numbers of how many people are active with COVID-19 is dramatically less than the total numbers. As of today, that number is 41.0 percent of the total number that is being reported.

Here is today’s update of the percentages of those 2,573,112 individuals in the U.S. that have been diagnosed with COVID-19 to-date and how they break down in terms of status as of 12:01 a.m. ET this Wednesday morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 41.0 percent of the 2,573,112 total today or 1,093,242 cases as of 12:01 a.m. ET, 41.3 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. 14-DAY NATIONAL RECOVERY TIME —54.2 percent of the total 2,573,112 individuals today or 1,444,481 individuals as of 12:01 a.m. ET, 53.9 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 4.8 percent of the total 2,573,112 or 126,165 deaths as of 12:01 a.m.ET, 4.8 percent yesterday.

The number of U.S. COVID-19 tests completed in the past 24 hours set a new record high of 1,010,405 tests bringing the total number to 34,199,918 tests completed to-date.  There were nearly as many tests completed in 24 hours here in the U.S. as there are active cases, 1,010,405 tests compared to 1,093,242 active cases.

California, Texas, Florida, and Arizona posted the highest counts and account for 52.5 percent of the new cases:

*California — 7,906 new cases in past 24 hours as of 12:01 a.m., 6,896 yesterday
*Texas — 7,959 new cases in past 24 hours as of 12:01 a.m.,  6,135 yesterday

*Arizona — 2,228 new cases in past 24 hours as of 12:01 a.m., 3,076 yesterday.

The number of fully-recovered, as defined in national U.S. tracking based on a consistent 14-day time period along with testing at the end of 14-days, now totals 1,492,443 individuals as of 12:01 a.m. today — an increase of 22,482 individuals.

FYI, there is a new campaign running on top cable networks in prime time television to secure donations of serum from COVID-19 survivors. The ads I have seen ran on HGTV, USA, DIY-TV and Food Network.

There are now 2,714,985 individuals in the United States that have been tracked with having encountered COVID-19 to-date.The current “hit rate” ratio of the number of tests conducted in the U.S. (34.8 million) and number of individuals identified with COVID-19 in the U.S. (2.7 million) is 13:1. In the past two days, 1,666,129 new COVID-19 tests have been conducted. and 97,139 new COVID-19 cases have been detected. That translates to a hit rate of 17:1 in the past two days. There is a delay in when a test is administered and when the results come back, but since its true on both sets of numbers, they remain comparative.Here is todays update of the percentages of those2,573,112 individuals in the U.S. that have been diagnosed with COVID-19 to-date and how they break down in terms of status as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 41.1 percent of the 2,714,985 total cases or 1,118,183 cases as of 12:01 a.m. ET, 41.0 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. with 14-DAY NATIONAL RECOVERY TIME —54.2 percent of the total 2,714,985 individuals or 1,469,961 individuals as of 12:01 a.m. ET, 54.2 percent yesterday

The four states with the most new cases — California, Texas, Florida, and Arizona — posted the highest counts and account for 51.2 percent of the new cases.

*California — 6,497 new cases in past 24 hours, 7,906 yesterday
*Texas - 8,240 new cases in past 24 hours,  7,959 yesterday

The total number of CURRENTLY ACTIVE COVID-19 cases in these four states totals 106,726 as of 12:01 a.m. this morning.

As Americans, we cannot travel to most of Europe.  As a Georgian, I cannot travel to New York.

Here is where the four early case states are in ''new'' cases:

*New York — 769 new cases in past 24 hours, 508 yesterday
*New Jersey — 285 new cases in past 24 hours, 554 yesterday
*Massachusetts — 261 new cases in past 24 hours, 114 yesterday
*Michigan — 361 new cases in past 24 hours, 505 yesterday.


The total number of CURRENTLY ACTIVE COVID-19 cases in these four states totals 432,744 as of 12:01 a.m. this morning.

The number of deaths either directly or indirectly linked to COVID-19 totaled 676 as of 12:01 a.m. today, compared to 746 deaths posted yesterday.

The number of “critical/serious” cases has not increased… in fact it is lower in the past seven days tracked than it was in the previous seven  days — 15,898 cases as of 12:01 a.m. today.

For the local Athenians reading this… I hear a lot of concern about what is taking place in Greater Athens — with some folks I speak to thinking that the active cases in Greater Athens has doubled.  Here is an update of the Athens numbers that I posted last Saturday:

There are now 2,663,888 individuals in the United States that have been tracked with having encountered COVID-19 to-date.

The mainstream media elects to share the total number of individuals who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 since it was first discovered in the United States in the beginning of 2020 rather than report ''current active cases''. When a person contracts the coronavirus and develops COVID-19, the coronavirus stays active — in that the coronavirus can be passed from their body to others — for five to six days. Individuals identified as active with COVID-19 are asked to remain quarantined for 14 days. After that time period, they cannot pass COVID-19 to others. This is shared to help explain to readers the numbers I track and report versus what is reported in mainstream media.

The actual numbers of how many people are active with COVID-19 is dramatically less than the total numbers. As of today, that number is 41.0 percent of the total number that is being reported.

Here is today’s update of the percentages of those 2,573,112 individuals in the U.S. that have been diagnosed with COVID-19 to-date and how they break down in terms of status as of 12:01 a.m. ET this Wednesday morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 41.0 percent of the 2,573,112 total today or 1,093,242 cases as of 12:01 a.m. ET, 41.3 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. 14-DAY NATIONAL RECOVERY TIME —54.2 percent of the total 2,573,112 individuals today or 1,444,481 individuals as of 12:01 a.m. ET, 53.9 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 4.8 percent of the total 2,573,112 or 126,165 deaths as of 12:01 a.m.ET, 4.8 percent yesterday.
+
+ 
The number of U.S. COVID-19 tests completed in the past 24 hours set a new record high of 1,010,405 tests bringing the total number to 34,199,918 tests completed to-date.  There were nearly as many tests completed in 24 hours here in the U.S. as there are active cases, 1,010,405 tests compared to 1,093,242 active cases.

California, Texas, Florida, and Arizona posted the highest counts and account for 52.5 percent of the new cases:

*California — 7,906 new cases in past 24 hours as of 12:01 a.m., 6,896 yesterday
*Texas — 7,959 new cases in past 24 hours as of 12:01 a.m.,  6,135 yesterday
*Florida — 6,093 new cases in past 24 hours as of 12:01 a.m., 5,264 yesterday
*Arizona — 2,228 new cases in past 24 hours as of 12:01 a.m., 3,076 yesterday.

+ 
These southeastern states accounted for an additional 14.8 percent of the new cases:

*Georgia — 1,874 new cases in past 24 hours as of 12:01 a.m., 2,207 yesterday
*South Carolina — 1,755 new cases in past 24 hours as of 12:01 a.m., 1,324 yesterday
*North Carolina — 1,663 new cases in past 24 hours as of 12:01 a.m., 1,537 yesterday

There are now 2,827,125 individuals in the United States that have been tracked with having encountered COVID-19 to-date.

Here is today’s update on the 2,827,125 individuals in the U.S. that have been diagnosed with COVID-19 to-date and their break down in terms of status as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 1,177,050 cases or 41.6% of the 2,827,125 total cases, 41.6% yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. with 14-DAY NATIONAL RECOVERY TIME — 1,521,931 individuals or 53.8% of the total 2,827,125 individuals, 53.8% yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 128,144 deaths or 4.6% of the total 2,827,125 cases, 4.6% yesterday.


While new cases grew by 54,904 in the past 24 hours the total number of ACTIVE cases increased by 29,488 cases, offset by the number of active cases moving into RECOVERY.

The four states with the most new cases posted the highest counts and account for 50.2% of the new cases:

*California — 6,314 new cases in past 24 hours, 9,352 yesterday
*Texas — 7,343 new cases in past 24 hours, 7,535 yesterday
*Florida — 9,488 new cases in past 24 hours, 10,109 yesterday
*Arizona — 4,433 new cases in past 24 hours, 3,333 yesterday.


The five southeastern states that have been identified previously as experiencing a rise in COVID-19 cases account for an additional 17.0% of the new cases. The share of new cases that these states represent continues to grow:

*Georgia — 2,784 new cases in the past 24 hours, 3,472 yesterday
*South Carolina — 1,831 new cases in the past 24 hours, 1,782 yesterday
*North Carolina — 2,054 new cases in the past 24 hours, 1,855 yesterday
*Alabama — 1,754 new cases in the past 24 hours, 1,149  yesterday
*Mississippi — 914 new cases in past 24 hours, 870 yesterday.


Here is where the four early case states are in new cases:

*New York — 1,134 new cases in past 24 hours, 1,035 yesterday
*New Jersey — 306 new cases in past 24 hours, 415 yesterday
*Massachusetts — 290 new cases in past 24 hours, 195 yesterday.
*Michigan — 497 new cases in past 24 hours, 582 yesterday.


The number of deaths either directly or indirectly linked to COVID-19 totaled 616 as of 12:01 a.m. today compared to the 676 deaths posted yesterday. The increase in new cases that started to climb more than a week ago are having limited, if any impact, on the number of deaths resulting from COVID-19.

The number of “critical/serious” cases grew by 32 cases across the U.S. — 15,928 cases as of 12:01 a.m. today. The increase in new cases that started to climb more than a week ago are having limited, if any impact, on the number of “critical/serious” cases resulting from COVID-19.

The number of fully-recovered — as defined in national U.S. tracking based on a consistent 14-day time period along with testing at the end of 14-days — now totals over 1.5 million at 1,521,931 individuals as of 12:01 a.m. this morning, an increase of 24,800 individuals.

For the local Greater Athens area, here are the numbers from 12:01 a.m. ET this morning compared to the numbers shared on Thursday in advance of the July 4th travel:

INSERT Athens-area chart 7_04:

And a word to fellow Athenians. While you might hear about the coronavirus frat parties and the increase of positive cases among “students,” even here in the shadows of the oldest state university in the United States, the majority of new active cases are taking place among individuals age 55+ and a hard-working labor base of mostly Hispanic-Latinos age 25-44. Take a moment this 4th of July weekend and reach out to the local Food Banks and Hispanic-Latino outreach programs.

Enjoy this Fourth of July Holiday weekend. We still reside in the greatest nation in the world.

There are now 2,772,221 individuals in the United States that have been tracked with having encountered COVID-19 to-date.

There is an increase in cases. The cases are concentrated in a very defined set of states, and, within each core state, the cases are defined to specific ZIP-Codes within key cities like Miami-Dade County, Houston, Phoenix, LA, Atlanta, Raleigh-Durham, Richmond, and Columbia-Charleston.

Here is the update of of percentages of the 2,772,221 individuals in the U.S. that have been diagnosed with COVID-19 to-date and how they break down in terms of status as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning:

The total number of CURRENTLY ACTIVE COVID-19 cases in these four states totals 432,744 as of 12:01 a.m. this morning.

The number of deaths either directly or indirectly linked to COVID-19 totaled 676 as of 12:01 a.m. today, compared to 746 deaths posted yesterday.

The number of “critical/serious” cases has not increased… in fact it is lower in the past seven days tracked than it was in the previous seven  days — 15,898 cases as of 12:01 a.m. today.

For the local Athenians reading this… I hear a lot of concern about what is taking place in Greater Athens — with some folks I speak to thinking that the active cases in Greater Athens has doubled.  Here is an update of the Athens numbers that I posted last Saturday:

!!Wednesday, July 1, 2020
There are now 2,663,888 individuals in the United States that have been tracked with having encountered COVID-19 to-date.

The mainstream media elects to share the total number of individuals who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 since it was first discovered in the United States in the beginning of 2020 rather than report current active cases. When a person contracts the coronavirus and develops COVID-19, the coronavirus stays active — in that the coronavirus can be passed from their body to others — for five to six days. Individuals identified as active with COVID-19 are asked to remain quarantined for 14 days. After that time period, they cannot pass COVID-19 to others. This is shared to help explain to readers the numbers I track and report versus what is reported in mainstream media.

The actual numbers of how many people are active with COVID-19 is dramatically less than the total numbers. As of today, that number is 41.0 percent of the total number that is being reported.

Here is today’s update of the percentages of those 2,573,112 individuals in the U.S. that have been diagnosed with COVID-19 to-date and how they break down in terms of status as of 12:01 a.m. ET this Wednesday morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 41.0 percent of the 2,573,112 total today or 1,093,242 cases as of 12:01 a.m. ET, 41.3 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. 14-DAY NATIONAL RECOVERY TIME —54.2 percent of the total 2,573,112 individuals today or 1,444,481 individuals as of 12:01 a.m. ET, 53.9 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 4.8 percent of the total 2,573,112 or 126,165 deaths as of 12:01 a.m.ET, 4.8 percent yesterday.
+
+ 
The number of U.S. COVID-19 tests completed in the past 24 hours set a new record high of 1,010,405 tests bringing the total number to 34,199,918 tests completed to-date.  There were nearly as many tests completed in 24 hours here in the U.S. as there are active cases, 1,010,405 tests compared to 1,093,242 active cases.

California, Texas, Florida, and Arizona posted the highest counts and account for 52.5 percent of the new cases:

*California — 7,906 new cases in past 24 hours as of 12:01 a.m., 6,896 yesterday
*Texas — 7,959 new cases in past 24 hours as of 12:01 a.m.,  6,135 yesterday
*Florida — 6,093 new cases in past 24 hours as of 12:01 a.m., 5,264 yesterday
*Arizona — 2,228 new cases in past 24 hours as of 12:01 a.m., 3,076 yesterday.
+
+ 
These southeastern states accounted for an additional 14.8 percent of the new cases:

*Georgia — 1,874 new cases in past 24 hours as of 12:01 a.m., 2,207 yesterday
*South Carolina — 1,755 new cases in past 24 hours as of 12:01 a.m., 1,324 yesterday
*North Carolina — 1,663 new cases in past 24 hours as of 12:01 a.m., 1,537 yesterday
*Alabama — 879 new cases in past 24 hours as of 12:01 a.m., 1,734 yesterday
*Mississippi — 680 new cases in past 24 hours as of 12:01 a.m., 675 yesterday.
+
+ 
The number of “critical/serious” cases has not increased. In fact it is lower in the past seven days than it was in the previous seven days — 15,935 cases as of 12:01 a.m. today.    DALLAS/ADOBE STOCK   0,0,10    thenumbers                             Coronavirus: The Numbers — July 2020 "

!!Tuesday, June 30, 2020
Here is the update on the 2,573,112 individuals in the United States that have been tracked with having encountered COVID-19 to-date. This is how they break down in terms of status as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 41.3 percent, 40.8 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. BASED ON THE 14-DAY NATIONAL RECOVERY TIME —53.9 percent, 54.3 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 4.8 percent, 4.9 percent yesterday


Newly identified COVID-19 cases posted an increase of 44,734 in the past 24 hours as of 12:01 a.m. ET — an increase of 4.3 percent of the 1,050,155 active cases as of yesterday.

The four top states to post posted the highest counts — accounting for 47.8 percent of the new cases — are:
California — 6,896 new cases
Texas — 6,135 new cases
Florida — 5,26 new cases
Arizona — 3,076 new cases

As reported previously, the concentration of these new cases fall in Los Angeles, Houston, Miami-Dade County, and Phoenix.

*To put this in perspective, these are the stats in the past 24 hours of new cases in the initial COVID-19 outbreak states:
*New York — 541 new cases
*New Jersey — 41 new cases
*Massachusetts — 101 new cases
*Michigan — 277 new cases


Here is a map of California that ran in the New York Times of the case fall-out across that state. Not only is LA the largest city in California, but Los Angeles County is where the vast number of new COVID-19 cases are being tracked.

::::

Five southeastern states accounted for an additional 16.7 percent of the new cases tracked Monday. Here is a break down of those states:

*Georgia — 2,207 new cases
*South Carolina — 1,324 new cases
*North Carolina — 1,537 new cases
*Alabama — 1,734 new cases
*Mississippi — 675 new cases


There is a rise in the number of cases among the 25-34 age group; however, the percentage of Hispanic-Latinos is even higher among those younger individuals testing positive, than among the age 35-54 age group. This is particularly true in the top four states:California, Texas, Florida and Arizona.

The number of “critical / serious” cases in the U.S. remains nearly unchanged — 15,864 in the past 24 hours vs. 15,825 on Sunday-to-Monday.

In terms of deaths, 346 died in the past 24 hours either directly or indirectly from COVID-19, raising the death count in the U.S. to 125,419. The death rate has slowed significantly despite the rise in new cases.

The number of individuals who have combatted COVID-19 and survived, based on the U.S. national recovery time period of 14 days, totals 1,412,188 individuals back to actively participating in every day life. The number of COVID-19 recoveries increased by 14,782 individuals in the past 24 hours.

The number of tests now completed in the U.S. increased just shy of 600,000 tests conducted Monday to 33,189,513 as of 7:00 a.m. ET today.

If you feel compelled to wear a mask, do so.  If you feel compelled to reach out to community groups serving “new-entry” Hispanic-Latinos, please do so. And you do not have to be LA, Miami-Dade County, Houston or Phoenix to do so. There are Hispanic-Latino community outreach groups through out the U.S.

Here is today’s update of the 2,573,112 individuals in the U.S. that have been tracked with having encountered COVID-19 to-date and how they break down percentage wise in terms of status as of 12:01 a.m. ET this Monday morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 40.8 percent, 41.4 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. BASED ON THE 14-DAY NATIONAL RECOVERY TIME —54.3 percent, 53.7 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 4.9 percent, 4.9 percent yesterday.

Newly identified COVID-19 cases posted an increase of 40,540 in the past 24 hours as of 12:01 a.m. ET — an increase of 3.8 percent of the 1,048,644 cases as of yesterday. Nearly an exact fall-out by state in the past 24 hours as compared to what was reported this time yesterday. Just over 54 percent of the new cases are concentrated in California, Texas, Florida and Arizona. Five southeastern states — Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama and Mississippi — continue to account for 15 percent of the new cases reported.

The number of individuals diagnosed as currently active with COVID-19 in the U.S. totals 1,050,644 with a net gain of exactly 2,000 cases in the past 24 hours.

The number of deaths posted one of the lowest levels recorded since mid-March when COVID-19 initially spread in the U.S. The number of individuals who died either directly or indirectly from COVID-19 in the U.S. totaled 285, bringing the number of individuals who have died either directly or indirectly from COVID-19 in the U.S. to 125,073.

As of 7:30 a.m. this morning a total of 15,825 individuals positive with COVID-19 are classified as in “critical / serious.” Again, no significant changes from one-day-to-the-next and lower in the past week than the previous week. These 15,825 individuals account for 1.5 percent of the total individuals currently positive with COVID-19 in the U.S.

The number of individuals who have combatted COVID-19 and survived based on the U.S. national recovery time period of 14 days totals 1,397,395. The number of COVID-19 recoveries increased by 38,256 individuals in the past 24 hours.

While the number of tests completed in the U.S. in the past 24 hours is less than the number of tests completed between Saturday and Sunday, the number is still significant at just under 600,000.  The total number of tests completed in the U.S. to-date is 32.6 million.  Globally, the country closest to the U.S. is Russia which has completed 19 million COVID-19 tests among its population to-date.

Here is the update of the 2,532,572 individuals in the U.S. that have been tracked with having encountered COVID-19 to-date and how they break down in percentages in terms of status as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 41.4 percent; 41.6 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. BASED ON THE 14-DAY NATIONAL RECOVERY TIME — 53.7 percent; 53.4 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 4.9 percent; 5.0 percent yesterday.


Newly identified COVID-19 cases posted an increase of 43,581 — an increases of 4.2 percent of the 1,036,012 active cases as of yesterday at 12:01 a.m. ET. Today, Sunday, more than half of the new cases, just shy of 54 percent, were identified in California, Texas, Florida and Arizona. The five southeastern states — Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, and Mississippi — accounted for another 15 percent of the new cases. The current number of individuals diagnosed as currently active with COVID-19 in the United States. totals 1,048,644 individuals.

The net number of individuals active with COVID-19 today vs. yesterday — with recoveries and deaths taking place in the last 24 hours — is up 1.2 percent from yesterday with a net increase of 12,632. That is the net number of new cases across the entire United States. Based on the U.S. population of 330,342,293 that is an increase that represents and additional 0.004 percent of the U.S. population.

Since Florida is a neighbor state to Georgia, I thought that readers would find the map below of interest. It plots out the concentration of COVID-19 cases by ZIP Code. A couple of days ago, I shared the breakdown of cases by ethnicity/race. Also included below is a breakdown of the Florida COVID-19 cases to-date by ethnicity/race based on numbers released at 7:30 a.m. this morning.

The pocket ZIP Codes highlighted in red are also ZIP Codes that are home to a large percentage of the Hispanic-Latino service staff that supports area restaurants, hotels and recreational attractions — including Disney World, Universal Park, and Bush Gardens — plus the labor base that works in state construction and local city service sectors.

::::

Florida COVID-19 cases by ethnicity/race:

*Caucasian/White — 12.1 percent of the Florida COVID-19 Cases and 45.6 percent of the Florida population
*African-American — 25.4 percent of the Florida COVID-19 Cases and 16.4 percent of the Florida population
*Hispanic-Latino — 47.7 percent of the Florida COVID-19 Cases and 27.1 percent of the Florida population
*Asian-American — 1.2 percent of the Florida COVID-19 Cases and 2.9 percent of the Florida population
*Other — 13.6 percent of the Florida COVID-19 Cases and 8.0 percent of the Florida population.
+
+ 
The number of deaths directly or indirectly linked to COVID-19 increased by 512 deaths as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning, bringing the total number of U.S. deaths to 124,788.

The number of individuals who combatted COVID-19 and have now achieved full-status wellness, based on the U.S. national recovery time period of 14 days, increased by 30,437 individuals in the past 24 hours to 1,359,140 individuals.

I know it sounds repetitive, but the number of “critical / serious” cases of COVID-19 cases posted nearly the same number yesterday as the day before — 15,815 cases in the past 24 hours and 15,765 cases the day before. The average number of “critical / serious” COVID-19 cases in the past seven days is about six percent fewer than the average number of “critical / serious” COVID-19 cases that posted the previous seven days.

Finally, the number of COVID-19 tests completed in the U.S. in the past 24 hours set a new record high — 745,524 completed tests, bringing the total number of tests completed to less than 2,000 shy of 32 million.

As I have shared, if you feel so moved to donate to a cause, consider your local food bank. Also consider outreach programs that serve the local Hispanic-Latino communities.

Here are the national, state, and local-stats for today.

NATIONAL

Here is how the 2,488,991 individuals in the U.S. that have encountered COVID-19 to-date breaks down percentage-wise as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 41.6 percent, 42.1 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. BASED ON THE 14-DAY NATIONAL RECOVERY TIME —53.4 percent, 52.8 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.0 percent, 5.5 percent yesterday.
*New cases set another record high in the past 24 hours, with an increase of 47,341 cases, or an increase of 4.6 percent of the 1,028,020 active cases yesterday. Half of these cases, 50 percent, were identified in California, Texas, Florida and Arizona. Five southeastern states — Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, and Mississippi — accounted for 13 percent of the new cases. The current number of individuals diagnosed as currently active with COVID-19 in the U.S. totals 1,036,012 individuals.


The reason why the total number of active COVID-19 cases in the U.S. is not 47,341 individuals more is because just as new cases are being diagnosed and identified, individuals who have tested positive with COVID-19 are recovering from it. Articles in both the Wall Street Journal and New York Times actually made a short mention of the recoveries and the limited number of deaths in articles this morning.

Also taking place at 12:01 a.m. today, the number of individuals who battled COVID-19 and survived the national 14-day time lapse increased by 38,383 and that total now posts at 1,328,703.

The number of individuals who have died from COVID-19 directly or indirectly in the U.S. increased by 663 cases to 124,276 deaths tracked to-date at 12:01 a.m. ET this morning.

The number of individuals in hospitals classified as “critical/serious” remains essentially the same as yesterday, 15,765 as of 12:01 a.m. ET today. compared to 15,725 yesterday.

Medical teams completed just under 600,000 COVID-19 tests in the past 24 hours, bringing the total number of tests completed in the U.S. to 31,353,500 as of 7:30 a.m. this morning.

GEORGIA

Again, I caution readers to be aware that the state of Georgia is one of about a half dozen States in the U.S. that do not post accurate COVID-19 numbers of active cases vs. total cases.

A total of 72,995 cases of COVID-19 have been identified in Georgia since the tracking began in January of this year. Some of those cases have resulted in death while many cases have passed through the national 14 days time lapse. As of today, based on a day-by-day tracking of the cases, there are 2,770 deaths from COVID-19 and 31,388 active case in Georgia. A total of 38,837 individuals have survived COVID-19 in Georgia based on the national 14-day time lapse.

Of those active cases, 11,360 are concentrated in the five core counties of Atlanta - Fulton, DeKalb, Gwinnett, Cobb and Clayton Counties. Another 1,384 are located in Hall County and 885 are found in Dougherty County (Albany). A total of 661 are found active in Greater Athens, comprised of Athens-Clarke, Barrow, Jackson, Madison, Oglethorpe and Oconee Counties.

A number of readers have asked how the cases tracked in Georgia break down by ethnicity and race. Here is a break-down of case numbers as reported by Georgia Department of Public Health and posting today at 8:00 a.m. ET by race/ethnicity:

*White/Caucasians, who represent 45.9 percent of the Georgia state population, account for 33.4 percent of the COVID-19 cases tracked
*African-Americans, who represent 31.9 percent of the Georgia state population, account for 37.3 percent of the COVID-19 cases tracked
*Hispanic-Latinos, who represent 10.1 percent of the Georgia state population, account for 21.0 percent of the COVID-19 cases tracked
*Asian-Indian Americans, who represent 4.4 percent of the Georgia state population, account for 2.3 percent of the COIVD-19 cases tracked
*A mix of “Other” race/ethnicity, who represent 7.7 percent of the Georgia state population, account for 6.0 percent of the COVID-19 cases tracked.


GREATER ATLANTA & GAINESVILLE & ALBANY

Below is the weekly update of total cases, active cases and deaths for the five core counties of Atlanta plus the core counties of Gainesville and Albany where two out-breaks took place over the past 90 days.

The number of active cases across all five Atlanta counties has increased 7.5 percent in the last week. The largest percentage increase, 12.5 percent, is in Gwinnett County.

Similar to what is happening nationally, while active cases have increased, deaths have increased at essentially half the pace. While there are sources that speak about the delay between case identification and deaths, nationally the increased cases among those age 35-54 are not as critical/severe and only a limited number of cases are resulting in death.

The 11,360 active COVID-19 cases in Atlanta’s five core counties accounts for 0.30 percent of the population.

::::

GREATER ATHENS

Below is a similar update for Athens-Clarke County and each of the five attached counties that comprises the Greater Athens metro area.

While active cases have increased in Greater Athens in the past week, the pace is about half of the increased cases appearing in the five Atlanta core counties. Over the past week, three additional individuals died either directly or indirectly from COVID-19, and those deaths took place in just one county, Jackson County.

The largest percentage increase of active cases took place in Athens-Clarke County, 10.6 percent, with an increase of an additional 19 cases active today vs. this same time last week.

The 683 active COVID-19 cases in Greater Athens accounts for 0.19 percent of the population.

Here is how the 2,441,650 individuals in the United States, that have been tracked with having encountered COVID-19 to-date, breaks down as of 12:01 a.m. ET Friday morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 42.1 percent, 42.3 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. BASED ON THE 14-DAY NATIONAL RECOVERY TIME —52.8 percent, 52.4 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.5 percent, 5.3 percent yesterday.

Before I go any further with the daily numbers, I want you to be aware of some simple facts that, somehow, mainstream media — along with a combination of politicians and academics — fail to acknowledge:

#The increase in cases is being driven by four key states: California, Texas, Florida and Arizona. These four states posted nearly half of all the new cases in the past 24 hours.
#If you add up ALL the active cases in those four states it totals 309,310. The total number of active cases in New York and New Jersey combined is 415,618.
#Three of the four states — California, Texas and Florida — are the largest states in the U.S.
#The 309,310 active cases in the four states represents 0.31 percent of the 98,688,769 people residing in those four states.
#The 415,618 active cases in New York and New Jersey combined represents 1.46 percent of the 28,377,043 people residing in those two states
#The “explosion” of new cases in the four states is tracked directly to geographic areas dominated by new entry and first generation Americans as well as others working largely blue-collar and trade jobs.
#Yesterday set a new daily record for the number of tests completed in one day — 674,102 COVID-19 tests — the largest gains posted in a set of sites, including mobile testing sites, that specifically reached out to first generation Americans and blue-collar/trade workers.


New cases did post the highest daily gain yesterday — 40,184 new cases with essentially half — 48.4 percent of all new cases concentrated in Los Angeles, Houston, Miami-Ft. Lauderdale, and Phoenix. Another 6,220 cases, 0r 15.5 percent, took place in Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama and Mississippi. Similar to what was reported in the Atlanta news yesterday, there are efforts in other Southeastern states to reach out to urban blue-collar and trade neighborhoods where conventional testing centers have not adequately reached.

The mainstream media is correct in citing that the new wave of cases being diagnosed are posting a higher percentage of positive COVID-19 among “younger adults, but the “younger adults” fall into the age 35-54 year old range, not the age 18-34 year old range. Mainstream media is also correct in reporting that there is not only a lower death rate among the age 35-54 year olds, but the encounters of those battling COVID-19 are less debilitating and more similar to battling the conventional flu. Furthermore mainstream media is correct in reporting that despite the increased diagnosis of COVID-19 in the expansion of testing, the number of “critical/serious” cases continues to decline and the number of deaths remains low. The number of “critical/serious” cases posting in the last 24 hours is 15,723; the number of individuals dying either directly or indirectly from COVID-19 in the last 24 hours posted at 649 individuals across the U.S.

Nationally, there are now 1,290,017 COVID-19 individuals who battled COVID-19 and survived based on the national 14 day national time lapse.

Below is the break-down of active COVID-19 cases by state comparing the active case totals from 12:01 a.m. ET today with the case numbers from one week ago.

::::

I am sure that there are many individuals reading these daily updates that get very frustrated attempting to track a sense of reality in conventional news reporting.

Today, the Wall Street Journal is running a headline article titled “Millions More Got The Virus Than First Thought.” It cites that as many as 20 million more Americans actually experienced COVID-19 and had no or very limited symptoms.

Nowhere in the article:

*Does it cite similar speculation of something like this occurring in the rest of the world.
*Is there any calculation that the death rate of COVID-19 would then dramatically drop as a percentage and actually become much more aligned to the death rate of the flu.
*Is there any inference that if the infection rate is that much higher, that COVID-19 is going to go through a natural decline because of an increase in natural immunity.
+

And then again, I have to remember that journalists are not scientists nor medical experts.  Commentary by scientific and medical experts is actually limited in the WSJ article.

I also have to remember that even respected newspapers, known for specialty in business and financial news, are not likely to fly off the racks — physical as well as digital racks — with only news stories about stock market fluctuations and CEO management issues.

Tonight, let’s raise a toast to the sky falling — and what the mass public mindset and mainstream media is. by damn, convinced is happening — and to how we all strive to dwell in reality to take on tomorrow… .

Here is how the 2,401,466 individuals in the the United States, who have been tracked with having encountered COVID-19 to-date, breaks down percentage-wise as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 42.3 percent of the 2,401,466 total; 43.2 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. BASED ON THE 14-DAY NATIONAL RECOVERY TIME — 52.4 percent of the 2,401,466 total; 52.7 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.3 percent of the 2,401,466 total; 5.1 percent yesterday
+
+ 
New COVID-19 cases posted higher again yesterday — 38,386 new cases — with essentially half, 49.6 percent, of them taking place in Los Angeles, Houston, Miami-Ft. Lauderdale, and Phoenix. Another 4,654 cases, or 12 percent, took place in a combination of Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina.

This morning, the local Atlanta news media reports a record number of individuals being tested in the city of Brookhaven are posting one of the highest levels of positive tests in the state. The local Atlanta news media is also acknowledging that “a high percentage of the positive cases are occurring among the Hispanic-Latino workforce population.” A high concentration of the Hispanic-Latino population resides in Atlanta along the Buford Highway corridor — a portion of which is located in the city of Brookhaven.

Just as yesterday, the number of “critical/serious” COVID-19 cases is remaining nearly the same, 16,507 cases reported yesterday and 16,541 cases reported in the last 24 hours.

The number of full recoveries based on the 14-day national timeframe increased by 16,224 to a total of 1,260,605 individuals who have successfully combated COVID-19 and returned to being among those active in the United States.

The number of individuals dying directly or indirectly from COVID-19 increased by 808 new deaths. Tomorrow, I will post a chart that tracks the number of deaths occurring in the past couple of weeks.

In the past 24 hours, the number of tests completed in the U.S. increased by more than 500,000, with the total now posting over 30 million tests completed.

The Hispanic-Latino population that drives the American workforce is a very, very critical driver of U.S. economics. With many construction projects just now renewing activity after 90 days of hiatus, the Hispanic-Latino workforce — mostly in their 30s and 40s — are finally back earning income again. Keep in mind that a share who are not tracked through formal U.S. channels have not been able to access unemployment compensation.

In Georgia, the state has worked to aggressively contain and limit the impact of COVID-19 on the workforce that drives the Georgia poultry mills. There are similar programs taking place in the four critical U.S. hot-spots in an effort to assist the first-generation American workforce.

Here is how the 2,363,080 individuals n the U.S. who have  been tracked with having encountered COVID-19 to-date breaks down percentage-wise as of 12:01 a.m. ET this Wednesday morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 42.2 percent of the 2,363,080 total; 42.6 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. BASED ON THE 14-DAY NATIONAL RECOVERY TIME — 52.7 percent of the 2,363,080 total; 52.2 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.1 percent of the 2,363,080 total; 5.2 percent yesterday



New cases did post higher yesterday than the average tracking total — 36,015 new cases — and as I have shared over the last several days, the new cases are concentrated in not only four states — California, Texas, Florida and Arizona — they are concentrated in a set of key metro areas: Los Angeles, Houston, Miami-Ft. Lauderdale, and Phoenix. The four states combined posted 52 percent of the new cases in the past 24 hours.

Several readers emailed me over the last several days asking about the demographic mix of the new cases in the four key states. There is some tracking information reported by local municipal tracking agencies and there are consistencies being reported across all four states — particularly among all four metro areas that dominate where the cases are being reported:

*More than 3/4ths of the cases are occurring among individuals age 45+ … while still accounting for a lower percentage than age 45+, there are higher incidence levels taking place in the 25-44 age group
*Hispanic-Latinos are accounting for a higher percentage of the new cases when compared to African-American, Asian-American and Caucasian
*The neighborhoods of origin post income levels below the state averages.



Local COVID-19 teams are indeed “rifle-targeting” efforts to test, identify, diagnose, and contain the local outbreaks in each of the key metro areas of case concentration. There is similarity of the outbreaks in Georgia’s Hall, Barrow and Jackson Counties with the outbreaks in the key counties in California, Texas, Florida and Arizona.

Also of local note, the three southeastern states that I highlighted yesterday — Georgia, Mississippi and South Carolina, which represented 11 percent of the new cases yesterday —represent 9 percent of new cases in the counts reported today.

On a national level, as illustrated in the breakdown of the total to-date — 2,363,080 —the new cases are being counter-balanced by case recoveries. In the past 24 hours, 36,015 new COVID-19 cases in the U.S. have been tracked and also in the past 24 hours, 29,452 individuals have survived and crossed the 14-day recovery timeframe. The positive cases identified in Georgia did post a higher number in the past 24 hours, but the number of tests completed in the key counties of Fulton, DeKalb, Gwinnett and Cobb are also higher.

There are now 1,244,381 COVID-19 survivors as of 12:01 a.m. ET today in the U.S.

The number of individuals dying directly or indirectly from COVID-19 increased 863 cases yesterday to a total of 122,156 for the year. The death by state breakdown is a different matrix than the postings of new COVID-19 cases. The four states accounting for 52 percent of new cases represent 24 percent of the deaths — there is a delay in cases identified and deaths, but the critical levels of the new cases is not at the level of the initial cases tracked in March and April.

The number of “critical/serious” cases remains unchanged — 16,507 active “serious/critical" cases posting since 12:01 a.m. ET today and 16,500 active “serious/critical” cases posting yesterday.

!!Tuesday, June 23, 2020
Here is how the 2,327,065 individuals in the U.S. who, having encountered COVID-19, have been tracked percentage-wise to-date as of 12:01 a.m. this morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 42.6 percent of the 2,327,065, 43.1 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. BASED ON THE 14-DAY NATIONAL RECOVERY TIME —52.2 percent of the 2,327,065, 51.6 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.2 percent of the 2,327,065, 5.3 percent yesterday.


Next are where the numbers were one month ago, as posted on May 23, 2020, compared with the numbers today:

*New cases in past 24 hours — 25,472, a raw count increase of 1.5 percent on May 23; 31,496 today and a raw count increase of 1.3 percent
*Active cases in the U.S. — 1,808,276 on May 23; 990,843 today
*Full recoveries in the U.S. — 402,169 on May 23; 1,214,929 today
*Critical/Serious cases — 17,135 on May 23; 16,500 cases today
*Tests completed — 14 million on May 23; 29 million today.



Isn’t it amazing how the landscape changed in just one month — even more so with all the people no longer house bound! And, isn’t it amazing how the mainstream news media refuses to report the tracked changes!

In the past 24 hours, 31,496 new COVID-19 cases in the U.S. have been tracked.  Also in the past 24 hours, 30,574 individuals have crossed the 14-day recovery timeframe and lived through the disease.

Just as posted over the course of the last week, 50 percent of the new cases tracked are in the four “outbreak” states… California, Texas, Florida and Alabama.  The news media cited Georgia and Mississippi in this morning’s reports of “the second round breakout of COVID-19 hitting the U.S.”  Georgia, Mississippi and South Carolina do post the next highest counts of new cases behind the four “outbreak” states and together those three Southeastern states account for another 11 percent of the new cases tracked in the past 24 hours.

The number of individuals who either died directly or indirectly from COVID-19 yesterday, Monday, through midnight totaled 363 individuals. Again, another day of daily COVID-19 related deaths tracking below 500 and I cannot find it being reported as such in digital, print, or broadcast news media.

There are now 1,214,929 COVID-19 survivors as of 12:01 a.m. today.

Yesterday the count of "critical/serious” COVID-19 cases tracked posted at 16,477; today it is posted at 16,500.

!!Monday, June 22, 2020
Here is how the 2,295,569 individuals in the U.S. who have been tracked having encountered COVID-19 breakdown percentage-wise to-date as of 12:01 a.m. this morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 43.1 percent of the 2,295,569; 43.5 from the total yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. BASED ON THE 14-DAY RECOVERY TIME — 51.6 percent of the 2,295,569; 51.1 percent from yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.3 percent of the 2,295,569;, 5.4 percent yesterday



In the past 24 hours there have been 26,079 new COVID-19 cases in the U.S. and there have also been 24,353 COVID-19 cases that passed the 14-day recovery benchmark.

Just as posted each day since Friday, 50 percent of the new cases tracked in four states: California, Texas, Florida and Arizona.

As of 12:01 a.m. today, the number of current active cases in these four states compares as follows as a percentage of the state population.  New York is included as a comparative anchor percentage.

*New York — active cases 1.51 percent of the population
*California — active cases 0.31 percent of the population
*Texas — active cases 0.15 percent of the population
*Florida — active cases 0.34 percent of the population
*Arizona — active cases 0.60 percent of the population
These are not the percentages of new cases… these percentages reflect the number of total active cases divided by the state population.

The number of individuals who died directly or indirectly from COVID-19 in the past 24 hours totals 267 — The lowest level posting over the last 90 days in terms of COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. — and the mainstream media is not reporting it.

As shared yesterday, the number of critical / serious cases of COVID-19 remains fixed at an average of 16,500 with 16,477 serious cases posting at 12:01 a.m. today — again, a number that the mass media is not reporting.

!!Sunday, June 21, 2020
Here is the breakdown of the percentage of individuals in the United States — 2,269,490 — who have encountered COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. this morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES — 43.5 percent, 43.8 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES BASED ON THE 14-DAY RECOVERY TIME —51.1 percent, 50.8 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.4 percent, 5.0 percent yesterday


In the past 24 hours there have been 33,388 new cases in the U.S. and 23,941 COVID-19 casespassed the 14-day recovery benchmark.

There are 988,825 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning, or, 15,725 more active cases than yesterday.

Nearly half of the new cases are concentrated in four states: California, Texas, Florida, and Arizona. The cases in those states are very geographically specific in terms of where the cases are being identified:

*California: 4,363 cases:
Three counties account for 68.6 percent of the cases
Los Angeles and Orange counties, two Los Angeles counties, represent 55.0 percent of the new cases.
San Joaquin County is just south of Sacramento and it represents another 13.6 percent.

*Texas: 4,250 cases:
Four counties account for 64.8 percent of the cases:
Houston, San Antonia, Dallas, and Austin counties.
The host county of Houston posts the highest and accounts for 35.3 percent of the cases by itself.

*Florida: 4,049 cases:
Four counties account for 58.5 percent of the cases:
Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties, the Greater Miami/Ft. Lauderdale/West Palm Beach area, together account for 45.3 percent of the 4,049 cases.
Hillsborough County, the host county of Tampa, accounts for another 13.2 percent of the cases.

*Arizona: 3,109 cases:
Maricopa, the host county of Phoenix, accounts for 74.1 percent of the cases reported across Arizona State-wide

As of 12:01 a.m., the number of individuals dying directly or indirectly from COVID-19 increased by another 573 individuals. The number of deaths per day over the past 10 days has averaged less than 750 individuals.

Also, the number of critical/serious cases of COVID-19 remains essentially the same as yesterday — 16,529 as of 12:01 a.m. ET today and 16,503 from yesterday. This daily statistic has remained at nearly the same number now for the past three weeks.

The number of individuals in the U.S. who have survived through encountering COVID-19 represent 50.8 percent of total cases identified in the U.S. Globally, 53.2 percent of individuals identified with COVID-19 have combatted the coronavirus and are now active-virus-free.

The number of tests conducted in the U.S. is now just shy of 29 million. The U.S. ranks number one on the number of tests conducted globally, Russia ranks number two with just shy of 17 million tests completed.

!!Saturday, June 20, 2020
Here is the breakdown of the percentage of individuals in the United States — 2,236,102 — who have encountered COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. this morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES — 43.8 percent, 44.2 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES BASED ON THE 14 DAY RECOVER TIME — 50.8 percent, 50.4 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.0 percent, 5.4 percent yesterday.


In the past 24 hours there have been 33,539 new cases in the U.S. and there are also 25,969 COVID-19 cases that passed the 14-day recovery benchmark.
There are 979,951 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning. That is 6,851 more than yesterday or an increase of 0.7 percent.

The new active cases are concentrated in California, Texas, Florida, North Carolina and Arizona.

The number of survivors increased to 1,136,061 individuals in the past 24 hours.

As of 12:01 a.m. ET, an additional 719 individuals died either directly or indirectly from COVID-19 in the U.S.

The number of individuals dying has remained low and so has the number of serious cases over the course of the last two weeks.

Here is the break-down for the five core counties of Georgia.

The number of confirmed cases has increased by 10.2 percent in the core Atlanta counties.

The number of active cases this week posts at 10,555 — 457 more active cases this week than last week.

The number of active cases in Hall and Dougherty County are down from the number of Active cases posting last week.

::::

Here is the break-down for the six core counties that make up Greater Athens.

The number of confirmed cases has increased by 10.2 percent.

The number of active cases this week posts at 661 — 23 more active cases this week than last week.

!!Friday, June 19, 2020
Here is the breakdown of the percentage of individuals in the United States — 2,236,102 — who have encountered COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. this morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES — 44.2 percent, 44.3 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES BASED ON THE 14 DAY RECOVERY TIME — 50.4 percent, 50.2 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.4 percent, 5.5 percent yesterday.


In the past 24 hours, there are 27,924 new cases in the U.S. and there are also 18,296 COVID-19 cases that passed the 14-day recovery benchmark. Those passing the 14-day recovery benchmark moves them from the “ACTIVE” bucket and into the “FULLY RECOVERED” bucket.

There are now 973,100 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning. That is an increase of 8,881 cases from yesterday or 0.9 percent.

The number of survivors increased to 1,110,092 individuals and as noted yesterday, continue to account for more than 50 percent of the overall 2,202,563 individuals who have encountered COVID-19.

As of 12:01 a.m. ET, an additional 747 individuals died either directly or indirectly from COVID-19 in the U.S., that is an increase of 0.6 percent from the tally of those who died yesterday.

The number of COVID-19 tests completed in the U.S. now totals 26,723,179. It is projected that this total will be over 35 million by this time next week. In some conversations with a number of healthcare sources here in Georgia, there does appear to be a delay of up to 5-7 days in the processing of the tests. So there is a back-log in when individuals are being tested and when they are receiving results.

The five key States — California, Florida, Texas, North Carolina and Arizona — highlighted by the media and accounting for 33 percent of the population of the U.S. accounted for 14,627 of the 27,924 new cases reported from yesterday or 52.4 percent… a percentage up from 50.3 percent yesterday.

A break-down of the key states tracked by many of the readers are highlighted in the chart below compared to one week earlier. For the states tracked below, active cases increased by 1.3 percent over this same time last week.

The media continues to speculate whether the U.S. is slipping into a “second wave” of cases. A number of politicians are following with calls to tighten restrictions on social, retail and business circulation. Two months ago, during the middle of April in the midst of the “first wave,” the number of active cases in these key states posted a weekly increase in the 15-20 percent range.

The largest percentage increase in the last week has taken place in California and, as can be seen below, that is an increase of 16.0 percent. Three counties represent 70 percent of those outbreaks — Los Angeles, Riverside and San Bernardino Counties. In terms of all active cases, 65 percent of the total active cases in California are concentrated in one county, Los Angeles County.

::::

I encourage readers to digest news clips broadcast and digital main-stream media release with speculation. You have the opportunity to question the mechanics of the context of how the numbers are being assessed and compared.

!!Thursday, June 18, 2020

Here are the three numbers that breakdown the total of 2,174,639 individuals in the U.S. that have been tracked with having encountered COVID-19 to-date as of 12:01 a.m. this morning.

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 44.3 percent, 45.2 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. BASED ON 14 DAY RECOVERING TIME — 50.2 percent, 49.2 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.5 percent, 5.6 percent yesterday.
To put the numbers in perspective, in the past 24 hours there are 26,071 new cases in the U.S., but there are also 32,755 COVID-19 cases that passed the 14-day recovery benchmark, moving them from the “ACTIVE” bucket and into the “FULL-RECOVERED” bucket

There are now 964,219 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning. That is a decrease of 7,493 active cases from yesterday.

The number of survivors increased to 1,091,796 individuals. Survivors now account for more than 50 percent of the overall 2,174,639 individuals who have encountered COVID-19. Its very sad that the mainstream media refuses to publish that number.

As of 12:01 a.m. ET, an additional 809 individuals died either directly or indirectly from COVID-19 in the U.S. That is an increase of 0.7 percent from those who died yesterday.

The number of tests completed in the U.S. increased to over 26 million yesterday: 26,243,811 as of 7:30 a.m. this morning.

Every morning when I get up and have coffee, I turn on my television to CNN and tune my radio to a local station, as I read the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times. This morning the news media was fixated on California, Florida, Texas, North Carolina, and Arizona, and reported that there is “a record-breaking surge” of new COVID-19 cases in these states that is “taking over the hospitals!” I promise you, I do not make this up

For readers, I went in and specifically reviewed each of the five “COVID-19 surge states” plus included New York state as a base of comparison.

First, mainstream media is correct that the five states do account for a larger percentage of COVID-19 cases in the past 24 hours than the states representing the rest of the U.S. population. The five states accounted for 50 percent of new cases, but only represent 33 percent of the U.S. population. The break-down with a comparison to New York State is included below.

::::

The key numbers to note:

*While the new case numbers in the media-highlighted five states is significant, so, too, are the number of total tests completed — as tests are expanded, and there is better detection of COVID-19
*While the new case numbers are comparatively high, the increase in active cases remains at a single-digital percentage increase
*The percent of the state populations currently COVIV-19 active is significantly low compared to New York. And, while not included in the chart, significantly low compared to more than 6 other states like New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts


As readers know, I do like to bet. I would place $25 down on a bet that the cases reported represent tests completed in more than the past 24 hours. Somewhere in processing the tests there was a “hold-up” that occurred and the time frame of testing and results reported became extended beyond 24 hours. I will track the cases reported in the Five States specifically over the next three to five days.

Overall the situation with COVID-19 in the U.S. IS IMPROVING despite what MSM highlights. Tomorrow I will provide a much richer break-down by key states of interest.

!!Wednesday, June 17, 2020

Yesterday a couple of people sent in questions asking exactly what the three percentages that I now use to begin each daily update mean.
These three numbers reflect the three "buckets" of where the TOTAL U.S. COVID-19 CASES to-date fall by the percentage of active, of 14-day recovered and of individuals who died either directly or indirectly from COVID-19. These percentages are derived from a combination of national and state-level tracking sources. National numbers are primarily derived from reports by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Johns Hopkins Center for System Science, and Worldometer hourly updates.

Specifically:

#These reflect the U.S. … they are not global
#The percentages add up to 100.0 percent
#The numbers are further supported in the daily text that follows after the numbers

So, for today's numbers, the total cases reported to-date are as follows:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 45.2 percent, 46.1 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 49.2 percent, 48.4 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.6 percent, 5.5 percent yesterday
 

There are now 971,712 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning.  That is a decrease of 7,574 active cases from yesterday.

Many ponder, but wait, how can the number of active cases be declining if the news media reports that there are new outbreaks taking place in states like Texas, Florida, Georgia and California? How?

Looking back to the first part of May, roughly a month ago, the average number of daily new cases hovered around 33,000 - 35,000 a day.  As I published on Monday, the average number of daily new cases now hover anywhere between 10,000 - 15,000 fewer each day.

More importantly, the peak of the infection bell-curve nationally came about 30 days ago. The "bump" in the bell-curve that drove up the infection pace is now shifting over to the numbers of those fully-recovered. Those 33,000 - 35,000 daily new infections are now shifting over to similar numbers for fully-recovered — the number of survivors is averaging in the 25,000 - 35,000 range each day (less the 5.6 percent of individuals who are not surviving.)

There are also some reports that increases in COVID-19 cases is happening among younger individuals as a result of relaxed social gatherings, protests and events. According to recent CDC statistics, last week, 83.2 percent of the new cases reported over the course of the week took place among individuals age 65+.  The week before last, 82.3 percent of the new cases reported over the course of the week took place among individuals age 65+.

There are now 1,059,041 14-day COVID-19 survivors in the U.S.  That is an increase of 3.1 percent from yesterday.

The number of deaths directly or indirectly related to COVID-19 in the U.S. as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning increased by 849 individuals to 117,815 or an increase of 0.7 percent from yesterday. Two weeks ago, the daily death count was averaging 2,500 people per day.

An editorial is running in today's Wall Street Journal titled, "There Isn't A Coronavirus Second Wave." Aside from citing the same stats that I share with readers, the author of the editorial goes on to note that the "hot states the media cite as fueling the second wave" have "dramatically increased testing that has allowed public officials to identify the settings of the outbreaks — prisons, nursing homes and meatpacking facilities — and contain the outbreaks." The outbreaks in Hall County Georgia at the poultry processing plants is cited in the editorial.

In terms of testing, the number of COVID-19 tests conducted in the U.S. as of 7:30 a.m. ET this morning totaled over 25.7 million. The daily number of tests completed in the U.S. now averages around 500,000 per day.

!!Tuesday, June 16, 2020
Today's COVID-19 numbers in the United States:

*ACTIVE COVIDE-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 46.1 percent, 46.7 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED CASES — 48.4 percent, 47.8 percent yesterday 
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.5 percent, 5.5 percent yesterday
 

There are now 979,286 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning. That is a decrease of 1,819 active cases from yesterday.

There are now 1,026,866 14-day survivors of COVID-19 in the U.S. as of 12:01 a.m this morning.  This is an increase of 2.2 percent from this same time yesterday. The rate of new individuals surviving is slightly outpacing the rate of new cases. This is something mainstream media does not highlight.

The number of COVID-19 deaths in the past 24 hours — 425 individuals tied either directly or indirectly to COVID-19 in the U.S. as of 12:01 a.m. ET the morning, an increase of 0.4 percent.

The number of "critical/serious" cases totaled 16,716 at 12:01 a.m. ET, a slight increase of 12 more individuals from yesterday.

As of 7:30 a.m. ET this morning, a total of 25,259,077 tests have been conducted in the U.S.

Just FYI to readers, I was tested a second time late last week and the results came back negative again. I do circulate among the "masses" as part of my work in interviewing and connecting with the marketplace. Given the nature of who has been tested to-date in the U.S. — that vast majority over the age of 40 — essentially 10 percent of the U.S. populace over the age 40 has now been tested to-date.

!!Monday, June 15, 2020
Here the breakdown for the total case numbers of individuals in the United States with COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. today:

*ACTIVE COVIDE-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 46.7 percent, 47.1 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED CASES — 47.8 percent, 47.3 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.5 percent, 5.6 percent yesterday
 

There are now 981,105 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. This is a decrease of 271 cases from yesterday.  More individuals are registering as "recovered" vs. "newly infected" — something that few in the mainstream media are reporting. More on what the media is focusing on in its news content momentarily

The number of COVID-19 deaths in the past 24 hours is one of the lowest numbers to post — 331 individuals died either directly or indirectly from COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. this morning. One month ago, the average number of deaths in the U.S. per day hovered around 2,000 individuals.

The number of "critical/serious" cases totaled 16,704 at 12:01 a.m. today. The number of "critical/serious" cases has hovered around 17,000 for more than 30 days and is now at around 16,750 each day.

As of 7:30 a.m. ET, a total of 24,794,617 tests have been completed in the U.S. To put that number in perspective, 7.5 percent of Americans have taken a COVID-19 test to-date, 0.6 percent of Americans have been tracked as infected with COVID-19 to-date. The ratio between testing and identification is currently running at 11.8 percent — For every 100 individuals being tested, 12 individual are testing positive with COVID-19 and 88 are not.

Now, let's look at what the media is reporting… a "second wave" of COVID-19 impacting key states.

The appearance and spread of COVID-19 in the U.S. trailed behind other global players like China, Italy and France. Here in the U.S., states like California, Texas, and even right here in Georgia lagged behind states like New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts and Michigan. The "top of the bell curve" for the U.S. lagged behind other countries. Some states have posted increases like California while other states like New York have posted decreases — that's because some states are at different points of COVID-19 evolution.

But numbers do not lie. Below is the number of new cases in the U.S. posted each day over the last two weeks:

*June 1 — 20,350
*June 2 — 22,153
*June 3 — 21,882
*June 4 — 20,578
*June 5 — 22,268
*June 6 — 25,393
*June 7 — 22,836
*June 8 — 18,905
*June 9 — 19,044
*June 10 — 19,056
*June 11 — 20,852
*June 12 — 23,300
*June 13 — 27,220
*June 14 — 25,302
*June 15 — 20,002
 

On June 1, a total of 17,672,567 U.S. tests had been completed. As of today, 40 percent more tests have since been completed. The number of positive identification has posted limited changes from one day to the next despite the increase in the number of tests being administered.

!!Sunday, June 14, 2020
Today's COVID-19 numbers for the United States: 

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES — 47.1 percent, 48.0% yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED CASES — 47.3% … 46.3% yesterday, or, the first time that fully-recovered cases reach a higher percentage than active COVID-19 cases
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.6%
 

There are now 981,376 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. This is a decrease of 6,572 active COVID-19 cases, or 0.7% from yesterday.
Again, ACTIVE cases includes individuals tracked as testing positive with COVID-19 and those individuals battling and surviving the coronavirus over the course of 14 days. While 25,302 individuals were designated as positive with COVID-19 in the past 24 hours, 30,172 individuals survived 14 days and entered into the recovery column also in the past 24 hours. In addition, 702 individuals did not survive and died either directly or indirectly from COVID-19.

The total number of COVID-19 survivors as of 12:01 a.m. today now totals 984,106 individuals and is growing.

The number of critical/serious COVID-19 cases totaled 16,344 at 12:01 a.m. ET, a slight increase of 31 cases nation-wide from 24 hours ago.

As of 7:30 a.m. ET today, a total of 24,292,171 COVID-19 tests have been completed in the U.S. That is an increase of just over 5 million more COVID-19 tests taking place in the last week. This time last week, 19,096,671 COVID-19 tests had been completed in the U.S.

To put this in perspective, in just one week, the total number of tests completed in the U.S. increased more than 20% and the average COVID-19 positive cases diagnosed per day — based on a five day average — has increased barely 10%.

!!Saturday, June 13, 2020
Today's three COVID-19 numbers in the United States:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES — 48.0 percent, 48.3 percent yesterday
*FULLY RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES — 46.3 percent, 46.1 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.6 percent, no percentage change from yesterday
NATIONAL:
There are now 987,948 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. This is an increase of 8,534 cases or 0.9 percent from yesterday.

The number of critical/serious CCOVID-19 cases totaled 16,313 at 12:01 ET, a drop of just over 500 cases from the day before, or nearly 3 percent.

As of 12:01am this morning, a total of 115,208 individuals in the U.S. died directly or indirectly from COVID-19, an increase of 791 individuals from yesterday or an increase of 0.7 percent.

The chart below is in an article in the current weekend edition of the Wall Street Journal. It charts how strong the age dynamic plays in COVID-19 deaths. Individuals over the age of 75 are accounting for over 60 percent of those who die from COVID-19.

::::

There are now 953,934 recoveries in the U.S. based on the 14 day time period of recovery. The gap difference between those currently battling COVID-19 and those fully recovered is a difference now of 34,014 individuals. Again, these are numbers that the MSM does not chose to highlight in their news content.

GREATER ATLANTA + Albany & Gainesville:
Below is a break-down that compares confirmed cases and deaths of COVID-19 from last Saturday morning  to this morning of the five core counties of Atlanta plus the two hot-spots in the state — Gainesville and Albany. The center column, highlighted in green, is the key column. 

The number of active cases:

*In the five Atlanta Counties it is up barely over 1.0 percent from 9,990 active cases last week
*Hall County continues to be a statewide hot-spot posting an increase from 1,661 active cases last week, an increase of 12.5 percent
*Dougherty County is up slightly more in active cases from 934 last week, an increase of 2.1 percent

The number of deaths increased nearly 13 percent from 756 a week ago to 854 as of this morning.

The 19,375 active case in the Greater Atlanta Five Core Counties represent 0.51 percent of the Five County population.

::::

GREATER ATHENS:
Below is a like chart that documents confirmed cases and deaths in the six county zone of greater Athens-Clarke County.

While there is some fluctuation in the active case numbers taking place over the past week, the total number of active cases remains the same this week as it was last week for the region. The number of active cases in Athens-Clarke County is 1 case lower than it was last week. Barrow and Jackson Counties are posting the most significant number of cases — three deaths occurred in Barrow County and one additional person died in Madison County.

The number of deaths in Athens-Clarke County remains the same and has remained at the count level of 15 individuals for several weeks. The number of active cases in Athens-Clarke County is one person less than it was last week.

The 175 active cases in Athens-Clarke County represents 0.13 percent of the Clarke County population.

Enjoy the weekend ahead. Stay safe — and wear those seat-belts!!!

I hope everyone is surviving through this onslaught of the mass media!  Again, we should be grateful for the existence of alternative media options.

Today's three COVID-19 numbers in the United States:
    *ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES — 48.3 percent, 48.6 percent yesterday 52.6 percent one week ago on Friday 5/6
    *FULLY RECOVERED CASES — 46.1 percent, 45.8 percent yesterday 41.6 percent one week ago on Friday 5/6
    *DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.6 percent, 5.6 percent yesterday 5.8 percent one week ago on Friday 5/6

There are now 979,414 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. This is an increase of 4,852 cases or 0.5 percent from yesterday. As can be seen in the chart below, there are a few states where there is broader fluctuation — California, Florida, Michigan and North Carolina — making the news.

The number of critical/serious COVID-19 cases totaled 16,817 at 12:01 a.m. ET … a number that remains essentially unchanged.

As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, a total of 114,47 individuals in the U.S. died directly or indirectly from COVID-19, an increase of 904 individuals from yesterday, or, an increase of 0.8 percent.

There are now 936,038 recoveries in the U.S. based on the national 14 day time period of recovery. There is a gap difference of just over 43,000 individuals between the total of those recovered from COVID-19 and those quarantined battling COVID-19. I predict that the number of survivors will supersede the number battling the coronavirus by Monday, if not sooner.

Here is the breakdown of the numbers for a set of key states tracked for readers based on the 14-day time period of recovery.

Tomorrow, I will highlight specific areas of Atlanta and the greater Athens-Clarke County area.

!!Thursday, June 11, 2020

Here are today's three COVID-19 numbers for the U.S.:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES — 48.6 percent, 48.6 percent yesterday
*FULLY RECOVERED CASES —45.8 percent, 45.7 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.6 percent, 5.7 percent yesterday

There are now 974,562 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. This is an increase of 10,784 active cases or 1.1 percent from yesterday.

The number of critical/serious COVID-19 cases totaled 16,838 as of 12:01 a.m. this morning in the U.S., a number that remains essentially unchanged.

As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, a total of 113,513 individuals have died directly or indirectly from COVID-19 in the U.S., an increase of 982 deaths from yesterday or 0.9 percent.

There are now 918,494 full recoveries in the U.S., an increase of 1.0 percent from 24 hours ago.

As I have communicated several times in the past, there is significant variance from one state to the next in how each state defines, "fully-recovered."

States like Georgia, Florida and Ohio work with an extended time frame from when a person is first diagnosed with COVID-19 and when the person is designated as a "survivor," and free to access Main Street again. The greatest factor influencing the numbers is the time period, 14 or 28 days, states define as the timeframe needed before full-recovery is declared.

Friday I will provide a break-down of cases and status by key states. I will report the numbers with the consistent 14-day timeframe for designation to full-recovery across the states.

Here is the percentage of full-recovery of COVID-19 cases per the countries listed as of this morning at 7:30am ET.

*Belgium — 27.5 percent
*Brazil — 49.1 percent
*Canada — 58.3 percent
*France — 46.3 percent
*India — 49.1 percent
*Ireland — 90.0 percent
*Italy — 71.1 percent
*Germany — 91.5 percent
*Japan — 88.6 percent
*Russia — 51.2 percent
*Switzerland — 92.5 percent
*U.S. — 45.8 percent

Here are the three COVID-19 numbers for the U.S.:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES — 48.6 percent, 48.9 percent yesterday
*FULLY RECOVERED CASES — 45.7 percent, 45.4 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 —5.7 percent, 5.7 percent yesterday

There are now 963,778 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. This is a slight increase of 2,035 active cases, or 0.2 percent, from yesterday.

The number of "critical/serious" cases as of 12:01 a.m. this morning in the U.S. is 16,952, or 1.8 percent of active COVID-19 cases.

The number of deaths increased by 1,093 individuals either directly or indirectly linked to COVID-19, increasing the total number to 112,531 since the coronavirus started being tracked at the beginning of the calendar year.

!!Tuesday, June 9, 2020
Here are today's three COVID-19 numbersfor the U.S.:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES — 48.9 percent; 50.0 percent yesterday
*FULLY RECOVERED CASES — 45.4 percent; 44.3 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY/INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.7 percent; 5.7 percent yesterday.

I suggested last week that within seven to ten days, we would see nearly an equal number of active cases as fully recovered cases. My prediction now is we will reach that before the weekend ahead.

There are now 961,743 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. This is a decrease of 13,314 active cases, or 1.4 percent, from yesterday.

The number of "critical/serious" cases posts at 16,907 as of 12:01 a.m. in the U.S. or 1.8 percent of active COVID-19 cases.

The number of deaths increased by 586 individuals either directly or indirectly linked to COVID-19 increasing the total number to 111,438.

The number of tests completed in the U.S. is closing in quickly on 22 million — as of this morning at 7:30 a.m., a total of 21,725,064 COVID-19 tests had been completed in the U.S.

There are now 893,480 fully recovered individuals who battled COVID-19 that are back in the Mainstream U.S.

An article is running in today's Wall Street Journal that reports a number of Asian and South Pacific countries are reporting little-to-no active cases of COVID-19 and that a fair share of European countries are closing in on active cases representing less than 10 percent of the total COVID-19 case numbers.

Not only are these countries closing in on limited-to-no COVID-19 presence, they are quickly becoming 100 percent up and running with social and work force interaction.

!!Monday, June 8, 2020
There are now 975,057 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S.  This is a decrease of 12,481 active cases or 1.3 percent from yesterday.

This morning's New York Times, Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post are filled with speculation about the next out-break of COVID-19; the speculation focused on the impending surge in new COVID-19 cases generated by the current human and civil rights demonstrations.

Back in May, May 13, 2020, to be specific, Worldometer issued a break out of COVID-19 cases by age group:

*Age 0-17 — 0.1 percent
*Age 18-44 — 3.9 percent
*Age 45-64 — 22.4 percent
*Age 65-74 — 24.9 percent
*Age 75+ — 48.7 percent

I am sure that there are a few great Mature Generation and Baby Boomers age 65+ out there voicing their perspective, but they are a very, very small share of the Millennial-dominated crowd.

The number of "crucial/serious" cases totals 16,923 as of 12:01 am this morning.

As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, 373 additional individuals either directly or indirectly died from COVID-19 since yesterday and brings the new total to 110,852. This is one of the lowest daily counts of COVID-19 related deaths since March.

There are now 861,708 COVID-19 survivors in the U.S.; a number that increased by 3.7 percent from 24 hours ago.

The number of COVID-19 tests completed totals 21,291,677, as of 7:30 a.m. this morning.

A combination of print, internet and broadcast news is fixated on California, Alabama, and Florida as the new "hot" pockets of COVID-19 break outs.

Let's take California and look at the numbers. There have been a total of 131,710 cases of COVID-19 identified in California. Currently, there are 94,427 active cases. The state posted 2,763 new cases in the past 24 hours — which the news media cite as well — that is an increase of 2.1 percent active cases. The number of active cases in California represents 0.24 percent of the California population. Currently, the number of active cases in the U.S. represents 0.30 percent of the U.S. population.

Let's look at Alabama. There have been a total of 20,500 cases of COVID-19 identified in Alabama. Currently, there are 8,413 active cases. The state posted 457 new cases in the past 24 hours — again, a number cited by the media also — that is an increase of 5.4 percent active cases. The number of active cases in Alabama represents 0.17 percent of the Alabama population. Again, the number of active cases in the U.S. represents 0.30 percent of the U.S. population.

If someone gave me a free week's vacation to California, I would be at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in a heartbeat. If someone gave me tickets to watch ‘Bama play another SEC team in the Bryant-Denny Stadium, I would jump in my KIA wearing burgundy red and carrying a flask of Rebel Yell.

On a Monday morning, I guess mass media has to find a headline story in that hay-stack of numbers and stats.

!!Sunday, June 7, 2020
The three key COVID-19 numbers for today in the United States:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES — 51.2 percent, 52.1 percent yesterday
*FULLY RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES — 43.1 percent, 42.2 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.7 percent, 5.7 percent yesterday

There are now 987,538 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. This is a slight decrease of 5,119 active cases, or 0.5 percent, from yesterday.

The number of "critical/serious" cases continues to remain nearly identical to the number posted each day over the past two weeks — 17,021.

As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, 706 additional individuals either directly or indirectly died from COVID-19 since yesterday — an increase of 0.6 percent brining the total number to 110,479 deaths.

There are now 830,695 COVID-19 survivors in the U.S. — a number that increased by 3.4 percent from 24 hours ago.

Below is a chart that posts the Three Key Numbers for today, plus the actual statistics behind each percentage for the U.S., plus a set of other countries that have been in the news.

::::

In Germany, the workforce is essentially all back to work. In Italy, much of the interaction of people is back to normal. Brazil now posts the second highest total cases globally and is positioned right behind the U.S. The percentage balance is nearly the same as the U.S. Canada is also not too different from the U.S.

Much of the media that I interact with largely operates out of New York or Washington. While CNN is officially based out of Atlanta, the New York studios generate most of the content. New York City is the global hot-bed of COVID-19. No other geographic acreage posts a similar out-break volume as has taken place in New York City. The city is also where most MSM is based.

While I am not an MD, I have spent the last 35 years of my career in tracking and forecasting trends and market changes. There are a lot of folks who openly voice to me that they have no idea what is going to happen next. In the work that I do, future forecasting is based on a wide variety of factors, but also based on similar and like environments and how those environments have evolved and changed.

As I shared with a couple of folks yesterday, I do believe that within the next 30-45 days the U.S. will post similar numbers as found in Italy and Germany. And this is with people going back to work, kids going back to school, and, yes, even with individuals marching in the streets to voice their viewpoints.

I also believe that one of the multiple dozens of vaccines that are now in stages two and three of development will combat COVID-19 — and individuals will be securing inoculation at some point in this calendar year.

The weekend edition of the Wall Street Journal has an article about the large leap in real estate sales that took place in May, an increase of 21 percent over the sales volume of May 2019. Sales will be up in June and July, too.

There is more activity taking place here in the U.S. than many believe and, to date, there has been no impact of that interaction on the COVID-10 numbers.

!!Saturday, June 6, 2020
The three key COVID-19 numbers for today in the U.S.

*ACTIVE CASES COVID-19 — 52.1 percent, yesterday 52.6 percent
*FULLY RECOVERED — 42.2 percent, yesterday 41.6 percent
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.7 percent, yesterday 5.8 percent
 

There are now 992,657 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. This is an increase of 3,224 active cases or 0.3 percent from yesterday.

As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, 975 additional individuals either directly or indirectly died from COVID-19, an increase of 0.9 percent bringing the total number to 109,773 deaths.

The number of COVID-19 patients classified as in "critical-serious condition" totaled 17,121 at 12:01 a.m. this morning.

There are now 803,446 COVID-19 survivors in the U.S. — a number that increased by 2.3 percent from 24 hours ago. The ratio of active to full recovered is currently 1:0.8 — a number edging closer to a 1:1 ratio.

A number of readers raised questions yesterday as to whether survivors of COVID-19 truly would be COVID-19 free for the rest of their life — some doubting that any sources made any similar conclusions.

First, nearly every source that pops up in Google searches notes that survivors are very, very likely to be COVID-19 free because their body "becomes programmed to combat any re-entry of the COVID-19." Second, I encourage all readers to understand that COVID-19 is one of many virus strains that abound in which individuals become infected.  The way that the human body combats viruses is not novel. There are multiple studies of viruses and how the human body physically responds.  Sources used to put together these daily updates all stand by the viewpoint that individuals combatting COVID-19 are very, very unlikely to experience a relapse.
 

ATLANTA CORE COUNTIES & TWO OUTBREAK COUNTIES
Below is a chart of the five core Atlanta counties plus Dougherty and Hall Counties. Added to the weekly post is a column of currently active cases. This is based on the national 14 day recovery period and has been statistically calculated based on the tracked daily new cases over the past 8 weeks.

GREATER ATHENS-CLARKE COUNTY
Below is a chart of Athens-Clarke County and the five adjacent counties that comprise that "metro" area. Again, added to the weekly post is the column of currently active cases.

The economic numbers released yesterday indicate that the U.S. economy — and society — is bouncing back. What the U.S. went through over the past 90 days was not driven by market economics.

!!Friday, June 5, 2020
The three key pandemic numbers for today:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES — 52.6 percent; yesterday, 55.5 percent
*FULLY RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES — 41.6 percent; yesterday, 38.7 percent
*DEATHS DIRECTLY/INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.8 percent; yesterday, 5.8 percent
 

As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, there are now 989,433 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. This is a decrease of 22,345 active cases, or 2.2 percent less than yesterday. The number of active cases is now below 1 million.

Also, as of 12:01 a.m. this morning, 1,031 additional individuals either directly or indirectly died from COVID-19, an increase of 0.9 percent, bringing the total number to 108,798 deaths.

The first COVID-19 death took place on February 8, 2020, in the U.S. Between February 8 and today, there have been 108,798 deaths directly or indirectly linked to COVID-19. During that same time span, there have been 205,784 individuals who have died directly from heart disease and another 190,356 individual who have died directly from cancer. Combined, those folks represent over 1 percent of the U.S. population.

The number of COVID-19 patients classified  in "critical-serious condition" totaled 17,083 at midnight, up slightly from 16,939 yesterday.

A total of 471,398 tests were administered in the U.S. yesterday, bringing the U.S. total of COVID-19 tests administered to date to 19,568,069, the next closest nation to in the administration of tests is Russia at 11,733,051.

There are now 782,252 COVID-19 survivors in the U.S., a number that increased 5.9 percent from yesterday, and, a number that will be increasing quickly as state definitions of "full recovery stats" time out and more survivors join the statistical ranks.

Below is a breakdown of the number of active cases as of 12:01 a.m. this morning, and one week ago, Friday, June 5. There are dramatic declines of active cases in states like Illinois and Massachusetts. Cases in New York, New Jersey Michigan and Pennsylvania posted significant declines one week ago. The number of active cases in Georgia, Florida and Ohio are based on the 14 day cycle used by Washington and the vast majority of States.

All 50 states have now begun pulling back "lock-down" restrictions. A large number of the population is leaving the house and getting back into mainstream society. Globally, there is not one single country that, in rolling back lock-down mandates, is experiencing a surge in new COVID-19 cases. Whether taking place back in March during college spring break; or back in April when the beaches re-opened; or back in May, over the course of Memorial Day weekend; or now, during marches and protests; there is not only no surge in new COVID-19 cases, the number of new cases per day has hovered around 20,000 over the course of the last four weeks.

My suggestion for this weekend is to turn off the stream of conventional digital and broadcast news media. Read your local alternative news weeklies and your local neighborhood newspapers instead. Replace CNN with TCM. Replace FOX News with FOX Sports. And replace MSNBC with NBC Sitcoms. Consider buying some fireworks and launching them to celebrate the number of active COVID-19 cases declining below 1 million.

Those active cases — 989,433 active cases — represent 3/10ths of one percent of our U.S. population of 330,342,293 folks. As the fireworks light up the sky, celebrate the 782,252 individuals who, as of today have battled COVID-19 and are alive. They represent 2/10ths of 1 percent of our U.S. population.

Georgia specific numbers are coming tomorrow.

!!Thursday, June 4, 2020
The set of the three numbers for today in the United States:

*ACTIVE CASES — 54.4 percent; yesterday 55.5 percent
*FULLY RECOVERED — 39.8 percent; yesterday 38.7 percent
*DIED DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY — 5.8 percent; yesterday 5.8 percent
 

As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, there are now 1,011,778 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. That is a decrease of 9,201 cases or 0.9 percent from yesterday.

As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, 1,083 additional individuals either directly or indirectly died from COVID-19, an increase of 1.0 percent brining the total number to 107,767.

The number of critical-level COVID-19 cases totaled 16,939 at 12:01 a.m. this morning, and accounted for 1.7 percent of individuals currently active with COVID-19.

The number of COVID-19 executed tests surpassed 19 million yesterday in the U.S. As of 7:30 a.m., 19,096,671 individuals in the U.S. have been tested.

There are now 738,670 COVID-19 survivors in the U.S. The survivor number increased 4.5 percent within the last 24 hours.

Some of you may be aware of Dr. Neil Ferguson, the British epidemiologist who predicted earlier this year more than 2.2 million deaths that would result from COVID-19 and advocated that governments shelter residents in their homes.

His model was used by many governments, the U.S. included, as the justification for taking "stay-at-home" mandates. In the last week, Dr. Ferguson has issued a new report — using global data before, during and now as restrictions are being relaxed — that the original model he issued was incorrect.

Dr. Ferguson now says the number of deaths that have resulted from COVID-19 — 388,510 total globally as of 7:30 a.m. this morning — might not have changed, whether the "stay-at-home" mandates had been enacted or not.

!!Wednesday, June 3,2020
Moving forward, I am going to begin with a new number set for the U.S. which will showcase the three key percentage breakdowns of the total number of COVID-19 cases reported to date. The three percentages will reflect the percentage of active COVID-19 cases, the next percentage will reflect the number of full-case survivors, and the third percentage will reflect the number of individuals who directly or indirectly died related to COVID-19.

For today, the set of three numbers in the U.S. includes:

*Active cases: 55.5 percent
*Fully recovered cases: 38.7 percent
*Died directly or indirectly cases: 5.8 percent.
 

Each day moving forward, the set of three numbers — based on the information released as of 12:01 a.m. that morning — will be posted as well as those of the day before. On Friday of every week, I will include a table of the three percentages for each day of the week to showcase trends.

As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, there are now 1,020,979 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. That is a decrease of 3,810 cases, or 0.4 percent, from yesterday.

Also as of 12:01 a.m., there have been an additional 1,134 deaths either directly or indirectly related to COVID-19, an increase of 1.1 percent, bringing the total number of deaths to 106,684.

The number of "critical/serious" cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. increased by 165 patients from 16,949 yesterday to 17,114 as of 7:30 a.m. this morning.

Also, as of 7:30 a.m. this morning, a total of 18,603,174 COVID-19 tests have been conducted in the U.S.  That is the largest number of tests conducted by any one country. Russia comes in #2 with a total of tests conducted of just over 11 million.

Lastly, as reflected in the three percentages highlighted above, of the individuals testing positive with COVID-19, 38.7 percent, or 706,974 individuals, have combatted the coronavirus and are now active in their daily lives. This is an increase of 3.1 percent over the past 24 hours.

I do like to bet and I will place $100 on the table that this time next week, the number of individual currently testing positive with COVID-19 and classified as "ACTIVE" will be in a range of 75,000 cases of the number of past individuals now fully recovered. Right now, for every person currently active with COVID-19, there are 0.7 individuals fully recovered, a 1.0:0.7 ratio. Next week, I say we will be close to a 1.0:1.0 ratio.

!!Tuesday, June 2, 2020
As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, there are now 1,024,789 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. That is a decrease of 14,126 cases, or 1.4 percent, from yesterday. Again, this is based on a set of numbers issued by the CDC, Johns Hopkins, and World Numbers, and takes in new cases as well as state-designated full recoveries and deaths.
In the past 24 hours since the issuance of yesterday's numbers, there have been 730 additional deaths either direct or indirectly related to COVID-19 — an increase of 0.6 percent bringing the total number to 105,550 deaths in the United States.

An article in this morning's Wall Street Journal highlighted a report issued by the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services yesterday. The study identified that at least 25,923 of the COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. — as of May 29, 2020 — were tied directly to nursing home facilities.  In addition it identified that 449 individuals working at the nursing homes also died from illnesses related to COVID-19. Based on the number of deaths reported May 29, the nursing home facility deaths accounts for just over 25 percent, or one out of every four, COVID-19 deaths in the U.S.

As of 7:30 a.m., a total of 18,154,510 COVID-19 tests were completed in the U.S. — an increase of 481,943 from yesterday. Currently, the ratio of tests completed to positive identification is 22 to 1. That is, for every 22 tests administered, 1 new case is identified. Yesterday a radio campaign broke in Greater Atlanta advertising free COVID-19 tests now available at testing centers for anyone interested in taking a test — no pre-existing symptoms need to be present.  The promotion of the tests will be interesting to assess in terms of the impact on the ratio of tests and positive case identification.

The number of critical/serious COVID-19 cases has dropped slightly from yesterday and the average over the past week to 16,920 individuals.

Lastly, I issued state-wide numbers yesterday that showcased a more consistent assessment of full recoveries that brought states like Georgia and Florida into a better comparative perspective.

The chart below takes the Georgia numbers and applies them specifically to the Greater Athens-Clarke County area. A number of those receiving the updates have roots in Greater Athens. The chart lists out the confirmed cases and confirmed COVID-19-related deaths from Saturday, May 30, to today, June 2. The green column adds an active case set of numbers that provides a much more realistic perspective. Of the 1,054 COVID-19 cases tracked, 639 of those cases are currently active, 51 of the people have died directly or indirectly related to COVID-19, and 364 individuals are now fully-recovered using the 14 day qualifier used in the majority of the U.S. States.

!!Monday, June 1, 2020
Welcome to June … and an interesting set of numbers for Monday morning.

Below you will see some comparisons of where we were exactly four weeks ago, on May 4, and today. Over that course of time, nearly all the states have relaxed their stay-at-home ordinances and reopened businesses. As of today, sit-down dining will be reopening in more than two-dozen states if it wasn't already reopened.

As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, there are now 1,038,915 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. That is a decrease of 31,917 cases, or 3.0 percent, from yesterday as more patients clear through the individual state qualifiers.

As much as the total case numbers that the mainstream media channels promote generates misperceptions of actuals, the total number of individuals who are either currently active with COVID-19, have died from COVID-19, and who have fully recovered fully-recovered from COVID-19 today is 1,793,602. On May 4, it was 1,188,826. That is a difference of 604,776 individuals, or 50.8 percent more. However, the number of active cases of COVID-19 today is 1,038,915. On May 4, that number was 941,261, making for a difference of 97,654 individuals, or 10.4 percent more.

As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, there are now 104,820 individuals in the U.S. who have either directly or indirectly died related to COVID-19. That is an increase of 638 individuals, or 0.6 percent, from yesterday.
Again, 4 weeks ago the total number individuals that either directly or indirectly died related to COVID-19 was 68,598.  That is a difference of 36,222 or 52.8 percent more.  Back 4 weeks ago, the average number of deaths per day for the week leading into 5/4 was 2,200 deaths.  The average number of deaths per day for the past week from today is 980 deaths.

The number of COVID-19 individuals classified as in "critical/serious" condition on 5/4 was 28,540.  The number of COVID-19 individuals classified as "critical/serious" today is 17,075.  Interestingly, there is are 10.4 percent more active cases today than 4 weeks ago, but the number of individuals at a "critical/serious" level is about a third fewer.

The number of tests completed in the U.S. as of May 4th was 7,196,740.  This is a number of tests conducted since they initially were used more than 60 days prior.  The number of tests completed as of 7:30am this morning in the U.S. stands at 17,672,567… and increase of just under 10.5 million more … in a time space of 28 days!  The number of tests completed each day back on May 4th was about 120,000.  Today, the average number of tests completed each day averages 450,000.

The number of full individuals classified as fully recovered by each individual State on May 4th was 180,152.  As of midnight last night, the number of individuals designated by each individual State has now surpasses 600,000 and registered a daily increase of 8.8 percent from 24 hours ago — 649,867.  That is an increase of 360.7 percent.  Unfortunately, the mainstream media fails to report that number.

As more individuals fully recovered and the number of active cases declines, so does the incidence level of individuals positively active with COVID-19.  The chart below is current from the statistics released by CDC, Johns Hopkins and World Meter at midnight last night.  Please note that the number of fully recovered individuals in States that include Georgia, Florida, Indiana and Ohio are recorded differently on the local case release levels because of the additional 2 weeks recovery the individual states maintain before an individual is classified as "fully recovered."  These numbers are generated from a common national qualifier of 2 weeks instead.

The percentage of Active Case is the actual percentage.  For example in Georgia, the 28,538 active cases accounts for 0.266 percent of our statewide population of 10,736,200 residents.  The reverse claim can also be made… 99.7 percent of the residents of Georgia are not currently active with COVID-19.

Here is the update on the 2,573,112 individuals in the United States that have been tracked with having encountered COVID-19 to-date. This is how they break down in terms of status as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 41.3 percent, 40.8 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. BASED ON THE 14-DAY NATIONAL RECOVERY TIME —53.9 percent, 54.3 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 4.8 percent, 4.9 percent yesterday


Newly identified COVID-19 cases posted an increase of 44,734 in the past 24 hours as of 12:01 a.m. ET — an increase of 4.3 percent of the 1,050,155 active cases as of yesterday.

The four top states to post posted the highest counts — accounting for 47.8 percent of the new cases — are:
California — 6,896 new cases
Texas — 6,135 new cases
Florida — 5,26 new cases
Arizona — 3,076 new cases

As reported previously, the concentration of these new cases fall in Los Angeles, Houston, Miami-Dade County, and Phoenix.

*To put this in perspective, these are the stats in the past 24 hours of new cases in the initial COVID-19 outbreak states:
*New York — 541 new cases
*New Jersey — 41 new cases
*Massachusetts — 101 new cases
*Michigan — 277 new cases


Here is a map of California that ran in the ''New York Times'' of the case fall-out across that state. Not only is LA the largest city in California, but Los Angeles County is where the vast number of new COVID-19 cases are being tracked.

::{img fileId="31906" imalign="center" max="800px" button="popup"}::

Five southeastern states accounted for an additional 16.7 percent of the new cases tracked Monday. Here is a break down of those states:

*Georgia — 2,207 new cases
*South Carolina — 1,324 new cases
*North Carolina — 1,537 new cases
*Alabama — 1,734 new cases
*Mississippi — 675 new cases


There is a rise in the number of cases among the 25-34 age group; however, the percentage of Hispanic-Latinos is even higher among those younger individuals testing positive, than among the age 35-54 age group. This is particularly true in the top four states:California, Texas, Florida and Arizona.

The number of “critical / serious” cases in the U.S. remains nearly unchanged — 15,864 in the past 24 hours vs. 15,825 on Sunday-to-Monday.

In terms of deaths, 346 died in the past 24 hours either directly or indirectly from COVID-19, raising the death count in the U.S. to 125,419. The death rate has slowed significantly despite the rise in new cases.

The number of individuals who have combatted COVID-19 and survived, based on the U.S. national recovery time period of 14 days, totals 1,412,188 individuals back to actively participating in every day life. The number of COVID-19 recoveries increased by 14,782 individuals in the past 24 hours.

The number of tests now completed in the U.S. increased just shy of 600,000 tests conducted Monday to 33,189,513 as of 7:00 a.m. ET today.

If you feel compelled to wear a mask, do so.  If you feel compelled to reach out to community groups serving “new-entry” Hispanic-Latinos, please do so. And you do not have to be LA, Miami-Dade County, Houston or Phoenix to do so. There are Hispanic-Latino community outreach groups through out the U.S.

Here is today’s update of the 2,573,112 individuals in the U.S. that have been tracked with having encountered COVID-19 to-date and how they break down percentage wise in terms of status as of 12:01 a.m. ET this Monday morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 40.8 percent, 41.4 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. BASED ON THE 14-DAY NATIONAL RECOVERY TIME —54.3 percent, 53.7 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 4.9 percent, 4.9 percent yesterday.

Newly identified COVID-19 cases posted an increase of 40,540 in the past 24 hours as of 12:01 a.m. ET — an increase of 3.8 percent of the 1,048,644 cases as of yesterday. Nearly an exact fall-out by state in the past 24 hours as compared to what was reported this time yesterday. Just over 54 percent of the new cases are concentrated in California, Texas, Florida and Arizona. Five southeastern states — Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama and Mississippi — continue to account for 15 percent of the new cases reported.

The number of individuals diagnosed as currently active with COVID-19 in the U.S. totals 1,050,644 with a net gain of exactly 2,000 cases in the past 24 hours.

The number of deaths posted one of the lowest levels recorded since mid-March when COVID-19 initially spread in the U.S. The number of individuals who died either directly or indirectly from COVID-19 in the U.S. totaled 285, bringing the number of individuals who have died either directly or indirectly from COVID-19 in the U.S. to 125,073.

As of 7:30 a.m. this morning a total of 15,825 individuals positive with COVID-19 are classified as in “critical / serious.” Again, no significant changes from one-day-to-the-next and lower in the past week than the previous week. These 15,825 individuals account for 1.5 percent of the total individuals currently positive with COVID-19 in the U.S.

The number of individuals who have combatted COVID-19 and survived based on the U.S. national recovery time period of 14 days totals 1,397,395. The number of COVID-19 recoveries increased by 38,256 individuals in the past 24 hours.

While the number of tests completed in the U.S. in the past 24 hours is less than the number of tests completed between Saturday and Sunday, the number is still significant at just under 600,000.  The total number of tests completed in the U.S. to-date is 32.6 million.  Globally, the country closest to the U.S. is Russia which has completed 19 million COVID-19 tests among its population to-date.

Here is the update of the 2,532,572 individuals in the U.S. that have been tracked with having encountered COVID-19 to-date and how they break down in percentages in terms of status as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 41.4 percent; 41.6 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. BASED ON THE 14-DAY NATIONAL RECOVERY TIME — 53.7 percent; 53.4 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 4.9 percent; 5.0 percent yesterday.


Newly identified COVID-19 cases posted an increase of 43,581 — an increases of 4.2 percent of the 1,036,012 active cases as of yesterday at 12:01 a.m. ET. Today, Sunday, more than half of the new cases, just shy of 54 percent, were identified in California, Texas, Florida and Arizona. The five southeastern states — Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, and Mississippi — accounted for another 15 percent of the new cases. The current number of individuals diagnosed as currently active with COVID-19 in the United States. totals 1,048,644 individuals.

The ''net'' number of individuals active with COVID-19 today vs. yesterday — with recoveries and deaths taking place in the last 24 hours — is up 1.2 percent from yesterday with a net increase of 12,632. That is the net number of new cases across the entire United States. Based on the U.S. population of 330,342,293 that is an increase that represents and additional 0.004 percent of the U.S. population.

Since Florida is a neighbor state to Georgia, I thought that readers would find the map below of interest. It plots out the concentration of COVID-19 cases by ZIP Code. A couple of days ago, I shared the breakdown of cases by ethnicity/race. Also included below is a breakdown of the Florida COVID-19 cases to-date by ethnicity/race based on numbers released at 7:30 a.m. this morning.

The pocket ZIP Codes highlighted in ''red ''are also ZIP Codes that are home to a large percentage of the Hispanic-Latino service staff that supports area restaurants, hotels and recreational attractions — including Disney World, Universal Park, and Bush Gardens — plus the labor base that works in state construction and local city service sectors.

::{img fileId="31839" imalign="center" max="800px" button="popup"}::

Florida COVID-19 cases by ethnicity/race:

*Caucasian/White — 12.1 percent of the Florida COVID-19 Cases and 45.6 percent of the Florida population
*African-American — 25.4 percent of the Florida COVID-19 Cases and 16.4 percent of the Florida population
*Hispanic-Latino — 47.7 percent of the Florida COVID-19 Cases and 27.1 percent of the Florida population
*Asian-American — 1.2 percent of the Florida COVID-19 Cases and 2.9 percent of the Florida population
*Other — 13.6 percent of the Florida COVID-19 Cases and 8.0 percent of the Florida population.
+
+ 
The number of deaths directly or indirectly linked to COVID-19 increased by 512 deaths as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning, bringing the total number of U.S. deaths to 124,788.

The number of individuals who combatted COVID-19 and have now achieved full-status wellness, based on the U.S. national recovery time period of 14 days, increased by 30,437 individuals in the past 24 hours to 1,359,140 individuals.

I know it sounds repetitive, but the number of “critical / serious” cases of COVID-19 cases posted nearly the same number yesterday as the day before — 15,815 cases in the past 24 hours and 15,765 cases the day before. The average number of “critical / serious” COVID-19 cases in the past seven days is about six percent fewer than the average number of “critical / serious” COVID-19 cases that posted the previous seven days.

Finally, the number of COVID-19 tests completed in the U.S. in the past 24 hours ''set a new record high'' — 745,524 completed tests, bringing the total number of tests completed to less than 2,000 shy of 32 million.

As I have shared, if you feel so moved to donate to a cause, consider your local food bank. Also consider outreach programs that serve the local Hispanic-Latino communities.

Here are the national, state, and local-stats for today.

~~#000000:__NATIONAL__~~

Here is how the 2,488,991 individuals in the U.S. that have encountered COVID-19 to-date breaks down percentage-wise as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 41.6 percent, 42.1 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. BASED ON THE 14-DAY NATIONAL RECOVERY TIME —53.4 percent, 52.8 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.0 percent, 5.5 percent yesterday.
*New cases set another record high in the past 24 hours, with an increase of 47,341 cases, or an increase of 4.6 percent of the 1,028,020 active cases yesterday. Half of these cases, 50 percent, were identified in California, Texas, Florida and Arizona. Five southeastern states — Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, and Mississippi — accounted for 13 percent of the new cases. The current number of individuals diagnosed as currently active with COVID-19 in the U.S. totals 1,036,012 individuals.


The reason why the total number of active COVID-19 cases in the U.S. is ''not'' 47,341 individuals more is because just as new cases are being diagnosed and identified, individuals who have tested positive with COVID-19 are recovering ''from'' it. Articles in both the'' Wall Street Journal'' and ''New York Times'' actually made a short mention of the recoveries and the limited number of deaths in articles this morning.

Also taking place at 12:01 a.m. today,__ __the number of individuals who battled COVID-19 and survived the national 14-day time lapse increased by 38,383 and that total now posts at 1,328,703.

The number of individuals who have died from COVID-19 directly or indirectly in the U.S. increased by 663 cases to 124,276 deaths tracked to-date at 12:01 a.m. ET this morning.

The number of individuals in hospitals classified as “critical/serious” remains essentially the same as yesterday, 15,765 as of 12:01 a.m. ET today. compared to 15,725 yesterday.

Medical teams completed just under 600,000 COVID-19 tests in the past 24 hours, bringing the total number of tests completed in the U.S. to 31,353,500 as of 7:30 a.m. this morning.

~~#000000:__GEORGIA__~~

Again, I caution readers to be aware that the state of Georgia is one of about a half dozen States in the U.S. that do not post ''accurate'' COVID-19 numbers of active cases vs. total cases.

A total of 72,995 cases of COVID-19 have been identified in Georgia since the tracking began in January of this year. Some of those cases have resulted in death while many cases have passed through the national 14 days time lapse. As of today, based on a day-by-day tracking of the cases, there are 2,770 deaths from COVID-19 and__ __31,388 active case in Georgia.__ __A total of 38,837 individuals have survived COVID-19 in Georgia based on the national 14-day time lapse.

Of those active cases, 11,360 are concentrated in the five core counties of Atlanta - Fulton, DeKalb, Gwinnett, Cobb and Clayton Counties.__ __Another 1,384 are located in Hall County and 885 are found in Dougherty County (Albany). A total of 661 are found active in Greater Athens, comprised of Athens-Clarke, Barrow, Jackson, Madison, Oglethorpe and Oconee Counties.

A number of readers have asked how the cases tracked in Georgia break down by ethnicity and race. Here is a break-down of case numbers as reported by Georgia Department of Public Health and posting today at 8:00 a.m. ET by race/ethnicity:

*White/Caucasians, who represent 45.9 percent of the Georgia state population, account for 33.4 percent of the COVID-19 cases tracked
*African-Americans, who represent 31.9 percent of the Georgia state population, account for 37.3 percent of the COVID-19 cases tracked
*Hispanic-Latinos, who represent 10.1 percent of the Georgia state population, account for 21.0 percent of the COVID-19 cases tracked
*Asian-Indian Americans, who represent 4.4 percent of the Georgia state population, account for 2.3 percent of the COIVD-19 cases tracked
*A mix of “Other” race/ethnicity, who represent 7.7 percent of the Georgia state population, account for 6.0 percent of the COVID-19 cases tracked.


~~#000000:__GREATER ATLANTA & GAINESVILLE & ALBANY__~~

Below is the weekly update of total cases, active cases and deaths for the five core counties of Atlanta plus the core counties of Gainesville and Albany where two out-breaks took place over the past 90 days.

The number of active cases across all five Atlanta counties has increased 7.5 percent in the last week. The largest percentage increase, 12.5 percent, is in Gwinnett County.

Similar to what is happening nationally, while active cases have increased, deaths have increased at essentially half the pace. While there are sources that speak about the delay between case identification and deaths, nationally the increased cases among those age 35-54 are not as critical/severe and only a limited number of cases are resulting in death.

The 11,360 active COVID-19 cases in Atlanta’s five core counties accounts for 0.30 percent of the population.

::{img fileId="31837" imalign="center" max="800px" button="popup"}::

~~#000000:__GREATER ATHENS__~~

Below is a similar update for Athens-Clarke County and each of the five attached counties that comprises the Greater Athens metro area.

While active cases have increased in Greater Athens in the past week, the pace is about half of the increased cases appearing in the five Atlanta core counties. Over the past week, three additional individuals died either directly or indirectly from COVID-19, and those deaths took place in just one county, Jackson County.

The largest percentage increase of active cases took place in Athens-Clarke County, 10.6 percent, with an increase of an additional 19 cases active today vs. this same time last week.

The 683 active COVID-19 cases in Greater Athens accounts for 0.19 percent of the population.

*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. BASED ON THE 14-DAY NATIONAL RECOVERY TIME —52.8 percent, 52.4 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.5 percent, 5.3 percent yesterday.

Before I go any further with the daily numbers, I want you to be aware of some simple facts that, ''somehow'', mainstream media — along with a combination of politicians and academics — fail to acknowledge:

#The increase in cases is being driven by four key states: California, Texas, Florida and Arizona. These four states posted nearly half of all the new cases in the past 24 hours.
#If you add up ALL the active cases in those four states it totals 309,310. The total number of active cases in New York and New Jersey combined is 415,618.
#Three of the four states — California, Texas and Florida — are the largest states in the U.S.
#The 309,310 active cases in the four states represents 0.31 percent of the 98,688,769 people residing in those four states.
#The 415,618 active cases in New York and New Jersey combined represents 1.46 percent of the 28,377,043 people residing in those two states
#The “explosion” of new cases in the four states is tracked directly to geographic areas dominated by new entry and first generation Americans as well as others working largely blue-collar and trade jobs.
#Yesterday set a new daily record for the number of tests completed in one day — 674,102 COVID-19 tests — the largest gains posted in a set of sites, including mobile testing sites, that specifically reached out to first generation Americans and blue-collar/trade workers.


New cases did post the highest daily gain yesterday — 40,184 new cases with essentially half — 48.4 percent of all new cases concentrated in Los Angeles, Houston, Miami-Ft. Lauderdale, and Phoenix. Another 6,220 cases, 0r 15.5 percent, took place in Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama and Mississippi. Similar to what was reported in the Atlanta news yesterday, there are efforts in other Southeastern states to reach out to urban blue-collar and trade neighborhoods where conventional testing centers have not adequately reached.

The mainstream media is correct in citing that the new wave of cases being diagnosed are posting a higher percentage of positive COVID-19 among “younger adults, but the “younger adults” fall into the age 35-54 year old range, not the age 18-34 year old range. Mainstream media is also correct in reporting that there is not only a lower death rate among the age 35-54 year olds, but the encounters of those battling COVID-19 are less debilitating and more similar to battling the conventional flu. Furthermore mainstream media is correct in reporting that despite the increased diagnosis of COVID-19 in the expansion of testing, the number of “critical/serious” cases continues to decline and the number of deaths remains low. The number of “critical/serious” cases posting in the last 24 hours is 15,723; the number of individuals dying either directly or indirectly from COVID-19 in the last 24 hours posted at 649 individuals across the U.S.

Nationally, there are now 1,290,017 COVID-19 individuals who battled COVID-19 and survived based on the national 14 day national time lapse.

Below is the break-down of active COVID-19 cases by state comparing the active case totals from 12:01 a.m. ET today with the case numbers from one week ago.

::{img fileId="31836" imalign="center" max="800px" button="popup"}::

I am sure that there are many individuals reading these daily updates that get very frustrated attempting to track a sense of reality in conventional news reporting.

Today, the ''Wall Street Journal'' is running a headline article titled “Millions More Got The Virus Than First Thought.” It cites that as many as 20 million more Americans actually experienced COVID-19 and had no or very limited symptoms.

Nowhere in the article:

*Does it cite similar speculation of something like this occurring in the rest of the world.
*Is there any calculation that the death rate of COVID-19 would then dramatically drop as a percentage and actually become much more aligned to the death rate of the flu.
*Is there any inference that if the infection rate is that much higher, that COVID-19 is going to go through a natural decline because of an increase in natural immunity.
+

And then again, I have to remember that journalists are not scientists nor medical experts.  Commentary by scientific and medical experts is actually limited in the ''WSJ'' article.

I also have to remember that even ''respected'' newspapers, known for specialty in business and financial news, are not likely to fly off the racks — physical as well as digital racks — with only news stories about stock market fluctuations and CEO management issues.

Tonight, let’s raise a toast to the sky falling — and what the mass public mindset and mainstream media is. by damn, convinced is happening — and to how we all strive to dwell in reality to take on tomorrow… .

Here is how the 2,401,466 individuals in the the United States, who have been tracked with having encountered COVID-19 to-date, breaks down percentage-wise as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 42.3 percent of the 2,401,466 total; 43.2 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. BASED ON THE 14-DAY NATIONAL RECOVERY TIME — 52.4 percent of the 2,401,466 total; 52.7 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.3 percent of the 2,401,466 total; 5.1 percent yesterday
+
+ 
New COVID-19 cases posted higher again yesterday — 38,386 new cases — with essentially half, 49.6 percent, of them taking place in Los Angeles, Houston, Miami-Ft. Lauderdale, and Phoenix. Another 4,654 cases, or 12 percent, took place in a combination of Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina.

This morning, the local Atlanta news media reports a record number of individuals being tested in the city of Brookhaven are posting one of the highest levels of positive tests in the state. The local Atlanta news media is also acknowledging that “a high percentage of the positive cases are occurring among the Hispanic-Latino workforce population.” A high concentration of the Hispanic-Latino population resides in Atlanta along the Buford Highway corridor — a portion of which is located in the city of Brookhaven.

Just as yesterday, the number of “critical/serious” COVID-19 cases is remaining nearly the same, 16,507 cases reported yesterday and 16,541 cases reported in the last 24 hours.

The number of full recoveries based on the 14-day national timeframe increased by 16,224 to a total of 1,260,605 individuals who have successfully combated COVID-19 and returned to being among those active in the United States.

The number of individuals dying directly or indirectly from COVID-19 increased by 808 new deaths. Tomorrow, I will post a chart that tracks the number of deaths occurring in the past couple of weeks.

In the past 24 hours, the number of tests completed in the U.S. increased by more than 500,000, with the total now posting over 30 million tests completed.

The Hispanic-Latino population that drives the American workforce is a very, very critical driver of U.S. economics. With many construction projects just now renewing activity after 90 days of hiatus, the Hispanic-Latino workforce — mostly in their 30s and 40s — are finally back earning income again. Keep in mind that a share who are not tracked through formal U.S. channels have not been able to access unemployment compensation.

In Georgia, the state has worked to aggressively contain and limit the impact of COVID-19 on the workforce that drives the Georgia poultry mills. There are similar programs taking place in the four critical U.S. hot-spots in an effort to assist the first-generation American workforce.

Here is how the 2,363,080 individuals n the U.S. who have  been tracked with having encountered COVID-19 to-date breaks down percentage-wise as of 12:01 a.m. ET this Wednesday morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 42.2 percent of the 2,363,080 total; 42.6 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. BASED ON THE 14-DAY NATIONAL RECOVERY TIME — 52.7 percent of the 2,363,080 total; 52.2 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.1 percent of the 2,363,080 total; 5.2 percent yesterday



New cases ''did'' post higher yesterday than the average tracking total — 36,015 new cases — and as I have shared over the last several days, the new cases are concentrated in not only four states — California, Texas, Florida and Arizona — they are concentrated in a set of key metro areas: Los Angeles, Houston, Miami-Ft. Lauderdale, and Phoenix. The four states combined posted 52 percent of the new cases in the past 24 hours.

Several readers emailed me over the last several days asking about the demographic mix of the new cases in the four key states. There is some tracking information reported by local municipal tracking agencies and there are consistencies being reported across all four states — particularly among all four metro areas that dominate where the cases are being reported:

*More than 3/4ths of the cases are occurring among individuals age 45+ … while still accounting for a lower percentage than age 45+, there are higher incidence levels taking place in the 25-44 age group
*Hispanic-Latinos are accounting for a higher percentage of the new cases when compared to African-American, Asian-American and Caucasian
*The neighborhoods of origin post income levels below the state averages.



Local COVID-19 teams are indeed “rifle-targeting” efforts to test, identify, diagnose, and contain the local outbreaks in each of the key metro areas of case concentration. There is similarity of the outbreaks in Georgia’s Hall, Barrow and Jackson Counties with the outbreaks in the key counties in California, Texas, Florida and Arizona.

Also of local note, the three southeastern states that I highlighted yesterday — Georgia, Mississippi and South Carolina, which represented 11 percent of the new cases yesterday —represent 9 percent of new cases in the counts reported today.

On a national level, as illustrated in the breakdown of the total to-date — 2,363,080 —the new cases are being counter-balanced by case recoveries. In the past 24 hours, 36,015 new COVID-19 cases in the U.S. have been tracked and also in the past 24 hours, 29,452 individuals have survived and crossed the 14-day recovery timeframe. The positive cases identified in Georgia did post a higher number in the past 24 hours, but the number of tests completed in the key counties of Fulton, DeKalb, Gwinnett and Cobb are also higher.

There are now 1,244,381 COVID-19 survivors as of 12:01 a.m. ET today in the U.S.

The number of individuals dying directly or indirectly from COVID-19 increased 863 cases yesterday to a total of 122,156 for the year. The death by state breakdown is a different matrix than the postings of new COVID-19 cases. The four states accounting for 52 percent of new cases represent 24 percent of the deaths — there is a delay in cases identified and deaths, but the critical levels of the new cases is not at the level of the initial cases tracked in March and April.

The number of “critical/serious” cases remains unchanged — 16,507 active “serious/critical" cases posting since 12:01 a.m. ET today and 16,500 active “serious/critical” cases posting yesterday.

!!Tuesday, June 23, 2020
Here is how the 2,327,065 individuals in the U.S. who, having encountered COVID-19, have been tracked percentage-wise to-date as of 12:01 a.m. this morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 42.6 percent of the 2,327,065, 43.1 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. BASED ON THE 14-DAY NATIONAL RECOVERY TIME —52.2 percent of the 2,327,065, 51.6 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.2 percent of the 2,327,065, 5.3 percent yesterday.


Next are where the numbers were one month ago, as posted on May 23, 2020, compared with the numbers today:

*New cases in past 24 hours — 25,472, a raw count increase of 1.5 percent on May 23; 31,496 today and a raw count increase of 1.3 percent
*Active cases in the U.S. — 1,808,276 on May 23; 990,843 today
*Full recoveries in the U.S. — 402,169 on May 23; 1,214,929 today
*Critical/Serious cases — 17,135 on May 23; 16,500 cases today
*Tests completed — 14 million on May 23; 29 million today.



Isn’t it amazing how the landscape changed in just one month — even more so with all the people no longer house bound! And, isn’t it amazing how the mainstream news media ''refuses'' to report the tracked changes!

In the past 24 hours, 31,496 new COVID-19 cases in the U.S. have been tracked.  Also in the past 24 hours, 30,574 individuals have crossed the 14-day recovery timeframe and lived through the disease.

Just as posted over the course of the last week, 50 percent of the new cases tracked are in the four “outbreak” states… California, Texas, Florida and Alabama.  The news media cited Georgia and Mississippi in this morning’s reports of “the second round breakout of COVID-19 hitting the U.S.”  Georgia, Mississippi and South Carolina do post the next highest counts of new cases behind the four “outbreak” states and together those three Southeastern states account for another 11 percent of the new cases tracked in the past 24 hours.

The number of individuals who either died directly or indirectly from COVID-19 yesterday, Monday, through midnight totaled 363 individuals. Again, another day of daily COVID-19 related deaths tracking below 500 and I cannot find it being reported as such in digital, print, or broadcast news media.

There are now 1,214,929 COVID-19 survivors as of 12:01 a.m. today.

Yesterday the count of "critical/serious” COVID-19 cases tracked posted at 16,477; today it is posted at 16,500.

!!Monday, June 22, 2020
Here is how the 2,295,569 individuals in the U.S. who have been tracked having encountered COVID-19 breakdown percentage-wise to-date as of 12:01 a.m. this morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 43.1 percent of the 2,295,569; 43.5 from the total yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. BASED ON THE 14-DAY RECOVERY TIME — 51.6 percent of the 2,295,569; 51.1 percent from yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.3 percent of the 2,295,569;, 5.4 percent yesterday



In the past 24 hours there have been 26,079 new COVID-19 cases in the U.S. and there have also been 24,353 COVID-19 cases that passed the 14-day recovery benchmark.

Just as posted each day since Friday, 50 percent of the new cases tracked in four states: California, Texas, Florida and Arizona.

As of 12:01 a.m. today, the number of current active cases in these four states compares as follows as a percentage of the state population.  New York is included as a comparative anchor percentage.

*New York — active cases 1.51 percent of the population
*California — active cases 0.31 percent of the population
*Texas — active cases 0.15 percent of the population
*Florida — active cases 0.34 percent of the population
*Arizona — active cases 0.60 percent of the population
These are ''not'' the percentages of new cases… these percentages reflect the number of total active cases divided by the state population.

The number of individuals who died directly or indirectly from COVID-19 in the past 24 hours totals 267 — The lowest level posting over the last 90 days in terms of COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. — and the mainstream media is ''not'' reporting it.

As shared yesterday, the number of critical / serious cases of COVID-19 remains fixed at an average of 16,500 with 16,477 serious cases posting at 12:01 a.m. today — again, a number that the mass media is ''not ''reporting.

!!Sunday, June 21, 2020
Here is the breakdown of the percentage of individuals in the United States — 2,269,490 — who have encountered COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. this morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES — 43.5 percent, 43.8 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES BASED ON THE 14-DAY RECOVERY TIME —51.1 percent, 50.8 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.4 percent, 5.0 percent yesterday


In the past 24 hours there have been 33,388 new cases in the U.S. and 23,941 COVID-19 casespassed the 14-day recovery benchmark.

There are 988,825 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning, or, 15,725 more active cases than yesterday.

Nearly half of the new cases are concentrated in four states: California, Texas, Florida, and Arizona. The cases in those states are very geographically specific in terms of where the cases are being identified:

*__California__: 4,363 cases:
Three counties account for 68.6 percent of the cases
Los Angeles and Orange counties, two Los Angeles counties, represent 55.0 percent of the new cases.
San Joaquin County is just south of Sacramento and it represents another 13.6 percent.

*__Texas: __4,250 cases:
Four counties account for 64.8 percent of the cases:
Houston, San Antonia, Dallas, and Austin counties.
The host county of Houston posts the highest and accounts for 35.3 percent of the cases by itself.

*__Florida: __4,049 cases:
Four counties account for 58.5 percent of the cases:
Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties, the Greater Miami/Ft. Lauderdale/West Palm Beach area, together account for 45.3 percent of the 4,049 cases.
Hillsborough County, the host county of Tampa, accounts for another 13.2 percent of the cases.

*__Arizona: __3,109 cases:
Maricopa, the host county of Phoenix, accounts for 74.1 percent of the cases reported across Arizona State-wide

As of 12:01 a.m., the number of individuals dying directly or indirectly from COVID-19 increased by another 573 individuals. The number of deaths per day over the past 10 days has averaged less than 750 individuals.

Also, the number of critical/serious cases of COVID-19 remains essentially the same as yesterday — 16,529 as of 12:01 a.m. ET today and 16,503 from yesterday. This daily statistic has remained at nearly the same number now for the past three weeks.

The number of individuals in the U.S. who have survived through encountering COVID-19 represent 50.8 percent of total cases identified in the U.S. Globally, 53.2 percent of individuals identified with COVID-19 have combatted the coronavirus and are now active-virus-free.

The number of tests conducted in the U.S. is now just shy of 29 million. The U.S. ranks number one on the number of tests conducted globally, Russia ranks number two with just shy of 17 million tests completed.

!!Saturday, June 20, 2020
Here is the breakdown of the percentage of individuals in the United States — 2,236,102 — who have encountered COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. this morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES — 43.8 percent, 44.2 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES BASED ON THE 14 DAY RECOVER TIME — 50.8 percent, 50.4 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.0 percent, 5.4 percent yesterday.


In the past 24 hours there have been 33,539 new cases in the U.S. and there are also 25,969 COVID-19 cases that passed the 14-day recovery benchmark.
There are 979,951 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning. That is 6,851 more than yesterday or an increase of 0.7 percent.

The new active cases are concentrated in California, Texas, Florida, North Carolina and Arizona.

The number of survivors increased to 1,136,061 individuals in the past 24 hours.

As of 12:01 a.m. ET, an additional 719 individuals died either directly or indirectly from COVID-19 in the U.S.

The number of individuals dying has remained low and so has the number of serious cases over the course of the last two weeks.

Here is the break-down for the five core counties of Georgia.

The number of confirmed cases has increased by 10.2 percent in the core Atlanta counties.

The number of active cases this week posts at 10,555 — 457 more active cases this week than last week.

The number of active cases in Hall and Dougherty County are down from the number of Active cases posting last week.

Here is the break-down for the six core counties that make up Greater Athens.

The number of confirmed cases has increased by 10.2 percent.

The number of active cases this week posts at 661 — 23 more active cases this week than last week.

Here is the breakdown of the percentage of individuals in the United States — 2,236,102 — who have encountered COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. this morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES — 44.2 percent, 44.3 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES BASED ON THE 14 DAY RECOVERY TIME — 50.4 percent, 50.2 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.4 percent, 5.5 percent yesterday.


In the past 24 hours, there are 27,924 new cases in the U.S. and there are also 18,296 COVID-19 cases that passed the 14-day recovery benchmark. Those passing the 14-day recovery benchmark moves them from the “ACTIVE” bucket and into the “FULLY RECOVERED” bucket.

There are now 973,100 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning. That is an increase of 8,881 cases from yesterday or 0.9 percent.

The number of survivors increased to 1,110,092 individuals and as noted yesterday, continue to account for more than 50 percent of the overall 2,202,563 individuals who have encountered COVID-19.

As of 12:01 a.m. ET, an additional 747 individuals died either directly or indirectly from COVID-19 in the U.S., that is an increase of 0.6 percent from the tally of those who died yesterday.

The number of COVID-19 tests completed in the U.S. now totals 26,723,179. It is projected that this total will be over 35 million by this time next week. In some conversations with a number of healthcare sources here in Georgia, there does appear to be a delay of up to 5-7 days in the processing of the tests. So there is a back-log in when individuals are being tested and when they are receiving results.

The five key States — California, Florida, Texas, North Carolina and Arizona — highlighted by the media and accounting for 33 percent of the population of the U.S. accounted for 14,627 of the 27,924 new cases reported from yesterday or 52.4 percent… a percentage up from 50.3 percent yesterday.

A break-down of the key states tracked by many of the readers are highlighted in the chart below compared to one week earlier. For the states tracked below, active cases increased by 1.3 percent over this same time last week.

The media continues to speculate whether the U.S. is slipping into a “second wave” of cases. A number of politicians are following with calls to tighten restrictions on social, retail and business circulation. Two months ago, during the middle of April in the midst of the “first wave,” the number of active cases in these key states posted a weekly increase in the 15-20 percent range.

The largest percentage increase in the last week has taken place in California and, as can be seen below, that is an increase of 16.0 percent. Three counties represent 70 percent of those outbreaks — Los Angeles, Riverside and San Bernardino Counties. In terms of all active cases, 65 percent of the total active cases in California are concentrated in one county, Los Angeles County.

::{img fileId="31842" imalign="center" max="800px" button="popup"}::

I encourage readers to digest news clips broadcast and digital main-stream media release with speculation. You have the opportunity to question the mechanics of the context of how the numbers are being assessed and compared.

!!Thursday, June 18, 2020

Here are the three numbers that breakdown the total of 2,174,639 individuals in the U.S. that have been tracked with having encountered COVID-19 to-date as of 12:01 a.m. this morning.

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 44.3 percent, 45.2 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. BASED ON 14 DAY RECOVERING TIME — 50.2 percent, 49.2 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.5 percent, 5.6 percent yesterday.
To put the numbers in perspective, in the past 24 hours there are 26,071 new cases in the U.S., but there are also 32,755 COVID-19 cases that passed the 14-day recovery benchmark, moving them from the “ACTIVE” bucket and into the “FULL-RECOVERED” bucket

There are now 964,219 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning. That is a decrease of 7,493 active cases from yesterday.

The number of survivors increased to 1,091,796 individuals. Survivors now account for more than 50 percent of the overall 2,174,639 individuals who have encountered COVID-19. Its very sad that the mainstream media refuses to publish that number.

As of 12:01 a.m. ET, an additional 809 individuals died either directly or indirectly from COVID-19 in the U.S. That is an increase of 0.7 percent from those who died yesterday.

The number of tests completed in the U.S. increased to over 26 million yesterday: 26,243,811 as of 7:30 a.m. this morning.

Every morning when I get up and have coffee, I turn on my television to CNN and tune my radio to a local station, as I read the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times. This morning the news media was fixated on California, Florida, Texas, North Carolina, and Arizona, and reported that there is “a record-breaking surge” of new COVID-19 cases in these states that is “taking over the hospitals!” I promise you, I do not make this up

For readers, I went in and specifically reviewed each of the five “COVID-19 surge states” plus included New York state as a base of comparison.

First, mainstream media is correct that the five states do account for a larger percentage of COVID-19 cases in the past 24 hours than the states representing the rest of the U.S. population. The five states accounted for 50 percent of new cases, but only represent 33 percent of the U.S. population. The break-down with a comparison to New York State is included below.

::{img fileId="31651" imalign="center" max="800px" button="popup"}::

The key numbers to note:

*While the new case numbers in the media-highlighted five states is significant, so, too, are the number of total tests completed — as tests are expanded, and there is better detection of COVID-19
*While the new case numbers are comparatively high, the increase in active cases remains at a single-digital percentage increase
*The percent of the state populations currently COVIV-19 active is significantly low compared to New York. And, while not included in the chart, significantly low compared to more than 6 other states like New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts


As readers know, I do like to bet. I would place $25 down on a bet that the cases reported represent tests completed in more than the past 24 hours. Somewhere in processing the tests there was a “hold-up” that occurred and the time frame of testing and results reported became extended beyond 24 hours. I will track the cases reported in the Five States specifically over the next three to five days.

Overall the situation with COVID-19 in the U.S. IS IMPROVING despite what MSM highlights. Tomorrow I will provide a much richer break-down by key states of interest.

!!Wednesday, June 17, 2020

Yesterday a couple of people sent in questions asking exactly what the three percentages that I now use to begin each daily update mean.
These three numbers reflect the three "buckets" of where the TOTAL U.S. COVID-19 CASES to-date fall by the percentage of ''active'', of ''14-day recovered ''and of'' individuals who died ''either directly or indirectly from COVID-19. These percentages are derived from a combination of national and state-level tracking sources. National numbers are primarily derived from reports by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Johns Hopkins Center for System Science, and Worldometer hourly updates.

Specifically:

#These reflect the U.S. … they are not global
#The percentages add up to 100.0 percent
#The numbers are further supported in the daily text that follows after the numbers

So, for today's numbers, the total cases reported to-date are as follows:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 45.2 percent, 46.1 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 49.2 percent, 48.4 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.6 percent, 5.5 percent yesterday
 

There are now 971,712 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning.  That is a decrease of 7,574 active cases from yesterday.

Many ponder, but wait, how can the number of active cases be declining if the news media reports that there are new outbreaks taking place in states like Texas, Florida, Georgia and California? How?

Looking back to the first part of May, roughly a month ago, the average number of daily new cases hovered around 33,000 - 35,000 a day.  As I published on Monday, the average number of daily new cases now hover anywhere between 10,000 - 15,000 fewer each day.

More importantly, the peak of the infection bell-curve nationally came about 30 days ago. The "bump" in the bell-curve that drove up the infection pace is now shifting over to the numbers of those fully-recovered. Those 33,000 - 35,000 daily new infections are now shifting over to similar numbers for fully-recovered — the number of survivors is averaging in the 25,000 - 35,000 range each day (less the 5.6 percent of individuals who are not surviving.)

There are also some reports that increases in COVID-19 cases is happening among younger individuals as a result of relaxed social gatherings, protests and events. According to recent CDC statistics, last week, 83.2 percent of the new cases reported over the course of the week took place among individuals age 65+.  The week before last, 82.3 percent of the new cases reported over the course of the week took place among individuals age 65+.

There are now 1,059,041 14-day COVID-19 survivors in the U.S.  That is an increase of 3.1 percent from yesterday.

The number of deaths directly or indirectly related to COVID-19 in the U.S. as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning increased by 849 individuals to 117,815 or an increase of 0.7 percent from yesterday. Two weeks ago, the daily death count was averaging 2,500 people per day.

An editorial is running in today's ''Wall Street Journal'' titled, "There Isn't A Coronavirus Second Wave." Aside from citing the same stats that I share with readers, the author of the editorial goes on to note that the "hot states the media cite as fueling the second wave" have "dramatically increased testing that has allowed public officials to identify the settings of the outbreaks — prisons, nursing homes and meatpacking facilities — and contain the outbreaks." The outbreaks in Hall County Georgia at the poultry processing plants is cited in the editorial.

In terms of testing, the number of COVID-19 tests conducted in the U.S. as of 7:30 a.m. ET this morning totaled over 25.7 million. The daily number of tests completed in the U.S. now averages around 500,000 per day.

!!Tuesday, June 16, 2020
Today's COVID-19 numbers in the United States:

*ACTIVE COVIDE-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 46.1 percent, 46.7 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED CASES — 48.4 percent, 47.8 percent yesterday 
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.5 percent, 5.5 percent yesterday
 

There are now 979,286 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning. That is a decrease of 1,819 active cases from yesterday.

There are now 1,026,866 14-day survivors of COVID-19 in the U.S. as of 12:01 a.m this morning.  This is an increase of 2.2 percent from this same time yesterday. The rate of new individuals surviving is slightly outpacing the rate of new cases. This is something mainstream media does not highlight.

The number of COVID-19 deaths in the past 24 hours — 425 individuals tied either directly or indirectly to COVID-19 in the U.S. as of 12:01 a.m. ET the morning, an increase of 0.4 percent.

The number of "critical/serious" cases totaled 16,716 at 12:01 a.m. ET, a slight increase of 12 more individuals from yesterday.

As of 7:30 a.m. ET this morning, a total of 25,259,077 tests have been conducted in the U.S.

Just FYI to readers, I was tested a second time late last week and the results came back negative again. I do circulate among the "masses" as part of my work in interviewing and connecting with the marketplace. Given the nature of who has been tested to-date in the U.S. — that vast majority over the age of 40 — essentially 10 percent of the U.S. populace over the age 40 has now been tested to-date.

!!Monday, June 15, 2020
Here the breakdown for the total case numbers of individuals in the United States with COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. today:

*ACTIVE COVIDE-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 46.7 percent, 47.1 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED CASES — 47.8 percent, 47.3 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.5 percent, 5.6 percent yesterday
 

There are now 981,105 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. This is a decrease of 271 cases from yesterday.  More individuals are registering as "recovered" vs. "newly infected" — something that few in the mainstream media are reporting. More on ''what ''the media is focusing on in its news content momentarily

The number of COVID-19 deaths in the past 24 hours is one of the lowest numbers to post — 331 individuals died either directly or indirectly from COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. this morning. One month ago, the average number of deaths in the U.S. per day hovered around 2,000 individuals.

The number of "critical/serious" cases totaled 16,704 at 12:01 a.m. today. The number of "critical/serious" cases has hovered around 17,000 for more than 30 days and is now at around 16,750 each day.

As of 7:30 a.m. ET, a total of 24,794,617 tests have been completed in the U.S. To put that number in perspective, 7.5 percent of Americans have taken a COVID-19 test to-date, 0.6 percent of Americans have been tracked as infected with COVID-19 to-date. The ratio between testing and identification is currently running at 11.8 percent — For every 100 individuals being tested, 12 individual are testing positive with COVID-19 and 88 are not.

Now, let's look at what the media ''is'' reporting… a "second wave" of COVID-19 impacting key states.

The appearance and spread of COVID-19 in the U.S. trailed behind other global players like China, Italy and France. Here in the U.S., states like California, Texas, and even right here in Georgia lagged behind states like New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts and Michigan. The "top of the bell curve" for the U.S. lagged behind other countries. Some states have posted increases like California while other states like New York have posted decreases — that's because some states are at different points of COVID-19 evolution.

But numbers do not lie. Below is the number of new cases in the U.S. posted each day over the last two weeks:

*June 1 — 20,350
*June 2 — 22,153
*June 3 — 21,882
*June 4 — 20,578
*June 5 — 22,268
*June 6 — 25,393
*June 7 — 22,836
*June 8 — 18,905
*June 9 — 19,044
*June 10 — 19,056
*June 11 — 20,852
*June 12 — 23,300
*June 13 — 27,220
*June 14 — 25,302
*June 15 — 20,002
 

On June 1, a total of 17,672,567 U.S. tests had been completed. As of today, 40 percent more tests have since been completed. The number of positive identification has posted limited changes from one day to the next despite the increase in the number of tests being administered.

__Today's COVID-19 numbers for the United States: __

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES — 47.1 percent, 48.0% yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED CASES — 47.3% … 46.3% yesterday, or, the first time that fully-recovered cases reach a higher percentage than active COVID-19 cases
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.6%
 

There are now 981,376 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. This is a decrease of 6,572 active COVID-19 cases, or 0.7% from yesterday.
Again, ACTIVE cases includes individuals tracked as testing positive with COVID-19 and those individuals battling and surviving the coronavirus over the course of 14 days. While 25,302 individuals were designated as positive with COVID-19 in the past 24 hours, 30,172 individuals survived 14 days and entered into the recovery column also in the past 24 hours. In addition, 702 individuals did not survive and died either directly or indirectly from COVID-19.

The total number of COVID-19 survivors as of 12:01 a.m. today now totals 984,106 individuals and is growing.

The number of critical/serious COVID-19 cases totaled 16,344 at 12:01 a.m. ET, a slight increase of 31 cases nation-wide from 24 hours ago.

As of 7:30 a.m. ET today, a total of 24,292,171 COVID-19 tests have been completed in the U.S. That is an increase of just over 5 million more COVID-19 tests taking place in the last week. This time last week, 19,096,671 COVID-19 tests had been completed in the U.S.

To put this in perspective, in just one week, the total number of tests completed in the U.S. increased more than 20% and the average COVID-19 positive cases diagnosed per day — based on a five day average — has increased barely 10%.

!!Saturday, June 13, 2020
Today's three COVID-19 numbers in the United States:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES — 48.0 percent, 48.3 percent yesterday
*FULLY RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES — 46.3 percent, 46.1 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.6 percent, no percentage change from yesterday
__NATIONAL:__
There are now 987,948 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. This is an increase of 8,534 cases or 0.9 percent from yesterday.

The number of critical/serious CCOVID-19 cases totaled 16,313 at 12:01 ET, a drop of just over 500 cases from the day before, or nearly 3 percent.

As of 12:01am this morning, a total of 115,208 individuals in the U.S. died directly or indirectly from COVID-19, an increase of 791 individuals from yesterday or an increase of 0.7 percent.

The chart below is in an article in the current weekend edition of the Wall Street Journal. It charts how strong the age dynamic plays in COVID-19 deaths. Individuals over the age of 75 are accounting for over 60 percent of those who die from COVID-19.

::{img fileId="31580" imalign="center" max="800px" button="popup"}::

There are now 953,934 recoveries in the U.S. based on the 14 day time period of recovery. The gap difference between those currently battling COVID-19 and those fully recovered is a difference now of 34,014 individuals. Again, these are numbers that the MSM does not chose to highlight in their news content.

__GREATER ATLANTA + Albany & Gainesville:__
Below is a break-down that compares confirmed cases and deaths of COVID-19 from last Saturday morning  to this morning of the five core counties of Atlanta plus the two hot-spots in the state — Gainesville and Albany. The center column, highlighted in green, is the key column. 

The number of active cases:

*In the five Atlanta Counties it is up barely over 1.0 percent from 9,990 active cases last week
*Hall County continues to be a statewide hot-spot posting an increase from 1,661 active cases last week, an increase of 12.5 percent
*Dougherty County is up slightly more in active cases from 934 last week, an increase of 2.1 percent

The number of deaths increased nearly 13 percent from 756 a week ago to 854 as of this morning.

The 19,375 active case in the Greater Atlanta Five Core Counties represent 0.51 percent of the Five County population.

::{img fileId="31579" imalign="center" max="800px" button="popup"}::

__GREATER ATHENS:__
Below is a like chart that documents confirmed cases and deaths in the six county zone of greater Athens-Clarke County.

While there is some fluctuation in the active case numbers taking place over the past week, the total number of active cases remains the same this week as it was last week for the region. The number of active cases in Athens-Clarke County is 1 case lower than it was last week. Barrow and Jackson Counties are posting the most significant number of cases — three deaths occurred in Barrow County and one additional person died in Madison County.

The number of deaths in Athens-Clarke County remains the same and has remained at the count level of 15 individuals for several weeks. The number of active cases in Athens-Clarke County is one person less than it was last week.

The 175 active cases in Athens-Clarke County represents 0.13 percent of the Clarke County population.

I hope everyone is surviving through this onslaught of the mass media!  Again, we should be grateful for the existence of alternative media options.

Today's three COVID-19 numbers in the United States:
    *ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES — 48.3 percent, 48.6 percent yesterday 52.6 percent one week ago on Friday 5/6
    *FULLY RECOVERED CASES — 46.1 percent, 45.8 percent yesterday 41.6 percent one week ago on Friday 5/6
    *DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.6 percent, 5.6 percent yesterday 5.8 percent one week ago on Friday 5/6

There are now 979,414 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. This is an increase of 4,852 cases or 0.5 percent from yesterday. As can be seen in the chart below, there are a few states where there is broader fluctuation — California, Florida, Michigan and North Carolina — making the news.

The number of critical/serious COVID-19 cases totaled 16,817 at 12:01 a.m. ET … a number that remains essentially unchanged.

As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, a total of 114,47 individuals in the U.S. died directly or indirectly from COVID-19, an increase of 904 individuals from yesterday, or, an increase of 0.8 percent.

There are now 936,038 recoveries in the U.S. based on the national 14 day time period of recovery. There is a gap difference of just over 43,000 individuals between the total of those recovered from COVID-19 and those quarantined battling COVID-19. I predict that the number of survivors will supersede the number battling the coronavirus by Monday, if not sooner.

Here is the breakdown of the numbers for a set of key states tracked for readers based on the 14-day time period of recovery.

Tomorrow, I will highlight specific areas of Atlanta and the greater Athens-Clarke County area.

!!Thursday, June 11, 2020

Here are today's three COVID-19 numbers for the U.S.:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES — 48.6 percent, 48.6 percent yesterday
*FULLY RECOVERED CASES —45.8 percent, 45.7 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.6 percent, 5.7 percent yesterday

There are now 974,562 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. This is an increase of 10,784 active cases or 1.1 percent from yesterday.

The number of critical/serious COVID-19 cases totaled 16,838 as of 12:01 a.m. this morning in the U.S., a number that remains essentially unchanged.

As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, a total of 113,513 individuals have died directly or indirectly from COVID-19 in the U.S., an increase of 982 deaths from yesterday or 0.9 percent.

There are now 918,494 full recoveries in the U.S., an increase of 1.0 percent from 24 hours ago.

As I have communicated several times in the past, there is significant variance from one state to the next in how each state defines, "fully-recovered."

States like Georgia, Florida and Ohio work with an extended time frame from when a person is first diagnosed with COVID-19 and when the person is designated as a "survivor," and free to access Main Street again. The greatest factor influencing the numbers is the time period, 14 or 28 days, states define as the timeframe needed before full-recovery is declared.

Friday I will provide a break-down of cases and status by key states. I will report the numbers with the consistent 14-day timeframe for designation to full-recovery across the states.

Here is the percentage of full-recovery of COVID-19 cases per the countries listed as of this morning at 7:30am ET.

*Belgium — 27.5 percent
*Brazil — 49.1 percent
*Canada — 58.3 percent
*France — 46.3 percent
*India — 49.1 percent
*Ireland — 90.0 percent
*Italy — 71.1 percent
*Germany — 91.5 percent
*Japan — 88.6 percent
*Russia — 51.2 percent
*Switzerland — 92.5 percent
*U.S. — 45.8 percent
 

!!Wednesday, June 10, 2020

Here are the three COVID-19 numbers for the U.S.:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES — 48.6 percent, 48.9 percent yesterday
*FULLY RECOVERED CASES — 45.7 percent, 45.4 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 —5.7 percent, 5.7 percent yesterday

There are now 963,778 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. This is a slight increase of 2,035 active cases, or 0.2 percent, from yesterday.

The number of "critical/serious" cases as of 12:01 a.m. this morning in the U.S. is 16,952, or 1.8 percent of active COVID-19 cases.

The number of deaths increased by 1,093 individuals either directly or indirectly linked to COVID-19, increasing the total number to 112,531 since the coronavirus started being tracked at the beginning of the calendar year.

!!Tuesday, June 9, 2020
Here are today's three COVID-19 numbersfor the U.S.:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES — 48.9 percent; 50.0 percent yesterday
*FULLY RECOVERED CASES — 45.4 percent; 44.3 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY/INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.7 percent; 5.7 percent yesterday.

I suggested last week that within seven to ten days, we would see nearly an equal number of active cases as fully recovered cases. My prediction now is we will reach that before the weekend ahead.

There are now 961,743 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. This is a decrease of 13,314 active cases, or 1.4 percent, from yesterday.

The number of "critical/serious" cases posts at 16,907 as of 12:01 a.m. in the U.S. or 1.8 percent of active COVID-19 cases.

The number of deaths increased by 586 individuals either directly or indirectly linked to COVID-19 increasing the total number to 111,438.

The number of tests completed in the U.S. is closing in quickly on 22 million — as of this morning at 7:30 a.m., a total of 21,725,064 COVID-19 tests had been completed in the U.S.

There are now 893,480 fully recovered individuals who battled COVID-19 that are back in the Mainstream U.S.

An article is running in today's ''Wall Street Journal'' that reports a number of Asian and South Pacific countries are reporting little-to-no active cases of COVID-19 and that a fair share of European countries are closing in on active cases representing less than 10 percent of the total COVID-19 case numbers.

Not only are these countries closing in on limited-to-no COVID-19 presence, they are quickly becoming 100 percent up and running with social and work force interaction.

!!Monday, June 8, 2020
There are now 975,057 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S.  This is a decrease of 12,481 active cases or 1.3 percent from yesterday.

This morning's ''New York Times'', ''Wall Street Journal'' and ''The Washington Post'' are filled with speculation about the next out-break of COVID-19; the speculation focused on the impending surge in new COVID-19 cases generated by the current human and civil rights demonstrations.

Back in May, May 13, 2020, to be specific, Worldometer issued a break out of COVID-19 cases by age group:

*Age 0-17 — 0.1 percent
*Age 18-44 — 3.9 percent
*Age 45-64 — 22.4 percent
*Age 65-74 — 24.9 percent
*Age 75+ — 48.7 percent

I am sure that there are a few great Mature Generation and Baby Boomers age 65+ out there voicing their perspective, but they are a very, very small share of the Millennial-dominated crowd.

The number of "crucial/serious" cases totals 16,923 as of 12:01 am this morning.

As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, 373 additional individuals either directly or indirectly died from COVID-19 since yesterday and brings the new total to 110,852. This is one of the lowest daily counts of COVID-19 related deaths since March.

There are now 861,708 COVID-19 survivors in the U.S.; a number that increased by 3.7 percent from 24 hours ago.

The number of COVID-19 tests completed totals 21,291,677, as of 7:30 a.m. this morning.

A combination of print, internet and broadcast news is fixated on California, Alabama, and Florida as the new "hot" pockets of COVID-19 break outs.

Let's take California and look at the numbers. There have been a total of 131,710 cases of COVID-19 identified in California. Currently, there are 94,427 active cases. The state posted 2,763 new cases in the past 24 hours — which the news media cite as well — that is an increase of 2.1 percent active cases. The number of active cases in California represents 0.24 percent of the California population. Currently, the number of active cases in the U.S. represents 0.30 percent of the U.S. population.

Let's look at Alabama. There have been a total of 20,500 cases of COVID-19 identified in Alabama. Currently, there are 8,413 active cases. The state posted 457 new cases in the past 24 hours — again, a number cited by the media also — that is an increase of 5.4 percent active cases. The number of active cases in Alabama represents 0.17 percent of the Alabama population. Again, the number of active cases in the U.S. represents 0.30 percent of the U.S. population.

If someone gave me a free week's vacation to California, I would be at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in a heartbeat. If someone gave me tickets to watch ‘Bama play another SEC team in the Bryant-Denny Stadium, I would jump in my KIA wearing burgundy red and carrying a flask of Rebel Yell.

On a Monday morning, I guess mass media has to find a headline story in that hay-stack of numbers and stats.

!!Sunday, June 7, 2020
The three key COVID-19 numbers for today in the United States:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES — 51.2 percent, 52.1 percent yesterday
*FULLY RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES — 43.1 percent, 42.2 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.7 percent, 5.7 percent yesterday

There are now 987,538 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. This is a slight decrease of 5,119 active cases, or 0.5 percent, from yesterday.

The number of "critical/serious" cases continues to remain nearly identical to the number posted each day over the past two weeks — 17,021.

As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, 706 additional individuals either directly or indirectly died from COVID-19 since yesterday — an increase of 0.6 percent brining the total number to 110,479 deaths.

There are now 830,695 COVID-19 survivors in the U.S. — a number that increased by 3.4 percent from 24 hours ago.

Below is a chart that posts the Three Key Numbers for today, plus the actual statistics behind each percentage for the U.S., plus a set of other countries that have been in the news.

::{img fileId="31471" max="800px" button="popup"}::

In Germany, the workforce is essentially all back to work. In Italy, much of the interaction of people is back to normal. Brazil now posts the second highest total cases globally and is positioned right behind the U.S. The percentage balance is nearly the same as the U.S. Canada is also not too different from the U.S.

Much of the media that I interact with largely operates out of New York or Washington. While CNN is officially based out of Atlanta, the New York studios generate most of the content. New York City is ''the'' global hot-bed of COVID-19. No other geographic acreage posts a similar out-break volume as has taken place in New York City. The city is also where most MSM is based.

While I am not an MD, I have spent the last 35 years of my career in tracking and forecasting trends and market changes. There are a lot of folks who openly voice to me that they have no idea what is going to happen next. In the work that I do, future forecasting is based on a wide variety of factors, but also based on similar and like environments and how those environments have evolved and changed.

As I shared with a couple of folks yesterday, I do believe that within the next 30-45 days the U.S. will post similar numbers as found in Italy and Germany. And this is with people going back to work, kids going back to school, and, yes, even with individuals marching in the streets to voice their viewpoints.

I also believe that one of the multiple dozens of vaccines that are now in stages two and three of development will combat COVID-19 — and individuals will be securing inoculation at some point in this calendar year.

The weekend edition of the ''Wall Street Journal'' has an article about the large leap in real estate sales that took place in May, an increase of 21 percent over the sales volume of May 2019. Sales will be up in June and July, too.

There is more activity taking place here in the U.S. than many believe and, to date, there has been no impact of that interaction on the COVID-10 numbers.

!!Saturday, June 6, 2020
The three key COVID-19 numbers for today in the U.S.

*ACTIVE CASES COVID-19 — 52.1 percent, yesterday 52.6 percent
*FULLY RECOVERED — 42.2 percent, yesterday 41.6 percent
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.7 percent, yesterday 5.8 percent
 

There are now 992,657 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. This is an increase of 3,224 active cases or 0.3 percent from yesterday.

As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, 975 additional individuals either directly or indirectly died from COVID-19, an increase of 0.9 percent bringing the total number to 109,773 deaths.

The number of COVID-19 patients classified as in "critical-serious condition" totaled 17,121 at 12:01 a.m. this morning.

There are now 803,446 COVID-19 survivors in the U.S. — a number that increased by 2.3 percent from 24 hours ago. The ratio of active to full recovered is currently 1:0.8 — a number edging closer to a 1:1 ratio.

A number of readers raised questions yesterday as to whether survivors of COVID-19 truly would be COVID-19 free for the rest of their life — some doubting that any sources made any similar conclusions.

First, nearly every source that pops up in Google searches notes that survivors are very, very likely to be COVID-19 free because their body "becomes programmed to combat any re-entry of the COVID-19." Second, I encourage all readers to understand that COVID-19 is one of many virus strains that abound in which individuals become infected.  The way that the human body combats viruses is not novel. There are multiple studies of viruses and how the human body physically responds.  Sources used to put together these daily updates all stand by the viewpoint that individuals combatting COVID-19 are very, very unlikely to experience a relapse.

The economic numbers released yesterday indicate that the U.S. economy — and society — is bouncing back. What the U.S. went through over the past 90 days was ''not'' driven by market economics.

!!Friday, June 5, 2020
The three key pandemic numbers for today:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES — 52.6 percent; yesterday, 55.5 percent
*FULLY RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES — 41.6 percent; yesterday, 38.7 percent
*DEATHS DIRECTLY/INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.8 percent; yesterday, 5.8 percent
 

As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, there are now 989,433 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. This is a ''decrease'' of 22,345 active cases, or 2.2 percent less than yesterday. The number of active cases is now below 1 million.

Also, as of 12:01 a.m. this morning, 1,031 additional individuals either directly or indirectly died from COVID-19, an increase of 0.9 percent, bringing the total number to 108,798 deaths.

The first COVID-19 death took place on February 8, 2020, in the U.S. Between February 8 and today, there have been 108,798 deaths directly or indirectly linked to COVID-19. During that same time span, there have been 205,784 individuals who have died directly from heart disease and another 190,356 individual who have died directly from cancer. Combined, those folks represent over 1 percent of the U.S. population.

The number of COVID-19 patients classified  in "critical-serious condition" totaled 17,083 at midnight, up slightly from 16,939 yesterday.

A total of 471,398 tests were administered in the U.S. yesterday, bringing the U.S. total of COVID-19 tests administered to date to 19,568,069, the next closest nation to in the administration of tests is Russia at 11,733,051.

There are now 782,252 COVID-19 survivors in the U.S., a number that increased 5.9 percent from yesterday, and, a number that will be increasing quickly as state definitions of "full recovery stats" time out and more survivors join the statistical ranks.

Below is a breakdown of the number of active cases as of 12:01 a.m. this morning, and one week ago, Friday, June 5. There are dramatic declines of active cases in states like Illinois and Massachusetts. Cases in New York, New Jersey Michigan and Pennsylvania posted significant declines one week ago. The number of active cases in Georgia, Florida and Ohio are based on the 14 day cycle used by Washington and the vast majority of States.

::{img fileId="31450" width="1024px"}::
 

All 50 states have now begun pulling back "lock-down" restrictions. A large number of the population is leaving the house and getting back into mainstream society. Globally, there is not one single country that, in rolling back lock-down mandates, is experiencing a surge in new COVID-19 cases. Whether taking place back in March during college spring break; or back in April when the beaches re-opened; or back in May, over the course of Memorial Day weekend; or now, during marches and protests; there is not only no surge in new COVID-19 cases, the number of new cases per day has hovered around 20,000 over the course of the last four weeks.

My suggestion for this weekend is to turn off the stream of conventional digital and broadcast news media. Read your local alternative news weeklies and your local neighborhood newspapers instead. Replace CNN with TCM. Replace FOX News with FOX Sports. And replace MSNBC with NBC Sitcoms. Consider buying some fireworks and launching them to celebrate the number of active COVID-19 cases declining below 1 million.

Those active cases — 989,433 active cases — represent 3/10ths of one percent of our U.S. population of 330,342,293 folks. As the fireworks light up the sky, celebrate the 782,252 individuals who, as of today have battled COVID-19 and are alive. They represent 2/10ths of 1 percent of our U.S. population.

Georgia specific numbers are coming tomorrow.

The set of the three numbers for today in the United States:

*ACTIVE CASES — 54.4 percent; yesterday 55.5 percent
*FULLY RECOVERED — 39.8 percent; yesterday 38.7 percent
*DIED DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY — 5.8 percent; yesterday 5.8 percent
 

As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, there are now 1,011,778 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. That is a decrease of 9,201 cases or 0.9 percent from yesterday.

As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, 1,083 additional individuals either directly or indirectly died from COVID-19, an increase of 1.0 percent brining the total number to 107,767.

The number of critical-level COVID-19 cases totaled 16,939 at 12:01 a.m. this morning, and accounted for 1.7 percent of individuals currently active with COVID-19.

The number of COVID-19 executed tests surpassed 19 million yesterday in the U.S. As of 7:30 a.m., 19,096,671 individuals in the U.S. have been tested.

There are now 738,670 COVID-19 survivors in the U.S. The survivor number increased 4.5 percent within the last 24 hours.

Some of you may be aware of Dr. Neil Ferguson, the British epidemiologist who predicted earlier this year more than 2.2 million deaths that would result from COVID-19 and advocated that governments shelter residents in their homes.

His model was used by many governments, the U.S. included, as the justification for taking "stay-at-home" mandates. In the last week, Dr. Ferguson has issued a new report — using global data before, during and now as restrictions are being relaxed — that the original model he issued was incorrect.

Dr. Ferguson now says the number of deaths that have resulted from COVID-19 — 388,510 total ''globally'' as of 7:30 a.m. this morning — might not have changed, whether the "stay-at-home" mandates had been enacted or not.

!!Wednesday, June 3,2020
Moving forward, I am going to begin with a new number set for the U.S. which will showcase the three key percentage breakdowns of the total number of COVID-19 cases reported to date. The three percentages will reflect the percentage of active COVID-19 cases, the next percentage will reflect the number of full-case survivors, and the third percentage will reflect the number of individuals who directly or indirectly died related to COVID-19.

For today, the set of three numbers in the U.S. includes:

*Active cases: 55.5 percent
*Fully recovered cases: 38.7 percent
*Died directly or indirectly cases: 5.8 percent.
 

Each day moving forward, the set of three numbers — based on the information released as of 12:01 a.m. that morning — will be posted as well as those of the day before. On Friday of every week, I will include a table of the three percentages for each day of the week to showcase trends.

As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, there are now 1,020,979 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. That is a decrease of 3,810 cases, or 0.4 percent, from yesterday.

Also as of 12:01 a.m., there have been an additional 1,134 deaths either directly or indirectly related to COVID-19, an increase of 1.1 percent, bringing the total number of deaths to 106,684.

The number of "critical/serious" cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. increased by 165 patients from 16,949 yesterday to 17,114 as of 7:30 a.m. this morning.

Also, as of 7:30 a.m. this morning, a total of 18,603,174 COVID-19 tests have been conducted in the U.S.  That is the largest number of tests conducted by any one country. Russia comes in #2 with a total of tests conducted of just over 11 million.

Lastly, as reflected in the three percentages highlighted above, of the individuals testing positive with COVID-19, 38.7 percent, or 706,974 individuals, have combatted the coronavirus and are now active in their daily lives. This is an increase of 3.1 percent over the past 24 hours.

I do like to bet and I will place $100 on the table that this time next week, the number of individual currently testing positive with COVID-19 and classified as "ACTIVE" will be in a range of 75,000 cases of the number of past individuals now fully recovered. Right now, for every person currently active with COVID-19, there are 0.7 individuals fully recovered, a 1.0:0.7 ratio. Next week, I say we will be close to a 1.0:1.0 ratio.

!!Tuesday, June 2, 2020
As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, there are now 1,024,789 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. That is a decrease of 14,126 cases, or 1.4 percent, from yesterday. Again, this is based on a set of numbers issued by the CDC, Johns Hopkins, and World Numbers, and takes in new cases as well as state-designated full recoveries and deaths.
In the past 24 hours since the issuance of yesterday's numbers, there have been 730 additional deaths either direct or indirectly related to COVID-19 — an increase of 0.6 percent bringing the total number to 105,550 deaths in the United States.

An article in this morning's ''Wall Street Journal'' highlighted a report issued by the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services yesterday. The study identified that at least 25,923 of the COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. — as of May 29, 2020 — were tied directly to nursing home facilities.  In addition it identified that 449 individuals working at the nursing homes also died from illnesses related to COVID-19. Based on the number of deaths reported May 29, the nursing home facility deaths accounts for just over 25 percent, or one out of every four, COVID-19 deaths in the U.S.

As of 7:30 a.m., a total of 18,154,510 COVID-19 tests were completed in the U.S. — an increase of 481,943 from yesterday. Currently, the ratio of tests completed to positive identification is 22 to 1. That is, for every 22 tests administered, 1 new case is identified. Yesterday a radio campaign broke in Greater Atlanta advertising free COVID-19 tests now available at testing centers for anyone interested in taking a test — no pre-existing symptoms need to be present.  The promotion of the tests will be interesting to assess in terms of the impact on the ratio of tests and positive case identification.

The number of critical/serious COVID-19 cases has dropped slightly from yesterday and the average over the past week to 16,920 individuals.

Lastly, I issued state-wide numbers yesterday that showcased a more consistent assessment of full recoveries that brought states like Georgia and Florida into a better comparative perspective.

The chart below takes the Georgia numbers and applies them specifically to the Greater Athens-Clarke County area. A number of those receiving the updates have roots in Greater Athens. The chart lists out the confirmed cases and confirmed COVID-19-related deaths from Saturday, May 30, to today, June 2. The green column adds an ''active'' case set of numbers that provides a much more realistic perspective. Of the 1,054 COVID-19 cases tracked, 639 of those cases are currently active, 51 of the people have died directly or indirectly related to COVID-19, and 364 individuals are now fully-recovered using the 14 day qualifier used in the majority of the U.S. States.

!!Monday, June 1, 2020
Welcome to June … and an interesting set of numbers for Monday morning.

Below you will see some comparisons of where we were exactly four weeks ago, on May 4, and today. Over that course of time, nearly all the states have relaxed their stay-at-home ordinances and reopened businesses. As of today, sit-down dining will be reopening in more than two-dozen states if it wasn't already reopened.

As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, there are now 1,038,915 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. That is a decrease of 31,917 cases, or 3.0 percent, from yesterday as more patients clear through the individual state qualifiers.

As much as the total case numbers that the mainstream media channels promote generates misperceptions of actuals, the total number of individuals who are either currently active with COVID-19, have died from COVID-19, and who have fully recovered fully-recovered from COVID-19 today is 1,793,602. On May 4, it was 1,188,826. That is a difference of 604,776 individuals, or 50.8 percent more. However, the number of active cases of COVID-19 today is 1,038,915. On May 4, that number was 941,261, making for a difference of 97,654 individuals, or 10.4 percent more.

As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, there are now 104,820 individuals in the U.S. who have either directly or indirectly died related to COVID-19. That is an increase of 638 individuals, or 0.6 percent, from yesterday.
Again, 4 weeks ago the total number individuals that either directly or indirectly died related to COVID-19 was 68,598.  That is a difference of 36,222 or 52.8 percent more.  Back 4 weeks ago, the average number of deaths per day for the week leading into 5/4 was 2,200 deaths.  The average number of deaths per day for the past week from today is 980 deaths.

The number of COVID-19 individuals classified as in "critical/serious" condition on 5/4 was 28,540.  The number of COVID-19 individuals classified as "critical/serious" today is 17,075.  Interestingly, there is are 10.4 percent more active cases today than 4 weeks ago, but the number of individuals at a "critical/serious" level is about a third fewer.

The number of tests completed in the U.S. as of May 4th was 7,196,740.  This is a number of tests conducted since they initially were used more than 60 days prior.  The number of tests completed as of 7:30am this morning in the U.S. stands at 17,672,567… and increase of just under 10.5 million more … in a time space of 28 days!  The number of tests completed each day back on May 4th was about 120,000.  Today, the average number of tests completed each day averages 450,000.

The number of full individuals classified as fully recovered by each individual State on May 4th was 180,152.  As of midnight last night, the number of individuals designated by each individual State has now surpasses 600,000 and registered a daily increase of 8.8 percent from 24 hours ago — 649,867.  That is an increase of 360.7 percent.  Unfortunately, the mainstream media fails to report that number.

As more individuals fully recovered and the number of active cases declines, so does the incidence level of individuals positively active with COVID-19.  The chart below is current from the statistics released by CDC, Johns Hopkins and World Meter at midnight last night.  Please note that the number of fully recovered individuals in States that include Georgia, Florida, Indiana and Ohio are recorded differently on the local case release levels because of the additional 2 weeks recovery the individual states maintain before an individual is classified as "fully recovered."  These numbers are generated from a common national qualifier of 2 weeks instead.

The percentage of Active Case is the actual percentage.  For example in Georgia, the 28,538 active cases accounts for 0.266 percent of our statewide population of 10,736,200 residents.  The reverse claim can also be made… 99.7 percent of the residents of Georgia are not currently active with COVID-19.

Here is the update on the 2,573,112 individuals in the United States that have been tracked with having encountered COVID-19 to-date. This is how they break down in terms of status as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 41.3 percent, 40.8 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. BASED ON THE 14-DAY NATIONAL RECOVERY TIME —53.9 percent, 54.3 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 4.8 percent, 4.9 percent yesterday


Newly identified COVID-19 cases posted an increase of 44,734 in the past 24 hours as of 12:01 a.m. ET — an increase of 4.3 percent of the 1,050,155 active cases as of yesterday.

The four top states to post posted the highest counts — accounting for 47.8 percent of the new cases — are:
California — 6,896 new cases
Texas — 6,135 new cases
Florida — 5,26 new cases
Arizona — 3,076 new cases

As reported previously, the concentration of these new cases fall in Los Angeles, Houston, Miami-Dade County, and Phoenix.

*To put this in perspective, these are the stats in the past 24 hours of new cases in the initial COVID-19 outbreak states:
*New York — 541 new cases
*New Jersey — 41 new cases
*Massachusetts — 101 new cases
*Michigan — 277 new cases


Here is a map of California that ran in the New York Times of the case fall-out across that state. Not only is LA the largest city in California, but Los Angeles County is where the vast number of new COVID-19 cases are being tracked.

::::

Five southeastern states accounted for an additional 16.7 percent of the new cases tracked Monday. Here is a break down of those states:

*Georgia — 2,207 new cases
*South Carolina — 1,324 new cases
*North Carolina — 1,537 new cases
*Alabama — 1,734 new cases
*Mississippi — 675 new cases


There is a rise in the number of cases among the 25-34 age group; however, the percentage of Hispanic-Latinos is even higher among those younger individuals testing positive, than among the age 35-54 age group. This is particularly true in the top four states:California, Texas, Florida and Arizona.

The number of “critical / serious” cases in the U.S. remains nearly unchanged — 15,864 in the past 24 hours vs. 15,825 on Sunday-to-Monday.

In terms of deaths, 346 died in the past 24 hours either directly or indirectly from COVID-19, raising the death count in the U.S. to 125,419. The death rate has slowed significantly despite the rise in new cases.

The number of individuals who have combatted COVID-19 and survived, based on the U.S. national recovery time period of 14 days, totals 1,412,188 individuals back to actively participating in every day life. The number of COVID-19 recoveries increased by 14,782 individuals in the past 24 hours.

The number of tests now completed in the U.S. increased just shy of 600,000 tests conducted Monday to 33,189,513 as of 7:00 a.m. ET today.

If you feel compelled to wear a mask, do so.  If you feel compelled to reach out to community groups serving “new-entry” Hispanic-Latinos, please do so. And you do not have to be LA, Miami-Dade County, Houston or Phoenix to do so. There are Hispanic-Latino community outreach groups through out the U.S.

Here is today’s update of the 2,573,112 individuals in the U.S. that have been tracked with having encountered COVID-19 to-date and how they break down percentage wise in terms of status as of 12:01 a.m. ET this Monday morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 40.8 percent, 41.4 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. BASED ON THE 14-DAY NATIONAL RECOVERY TIME —54.3 percent, 53.7 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 4.9 percent, 4.9 percent yesterday.

Newly identified COVID-19 cases posted an increase of 40,540 in the past 24 hours as of 12:01 a.m. ET — an increase of 3.8 percent of the 1,048,644 cases as of yesterday. Nearly an exact fall-out by state in the past 24 hours as compared to what was reported this time yesterday. Just over 54 percent of the new cases are concentrated in California, Texas, Florida and Arizona. Five southeastern states — Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama and Mississippi — continue to account for 15 percent of the new cases reported.

The number of individuals diagnosed as currently active with COVID-19 in the U.S. totals 1,050,644 with a net gain of exactly 2,000 cases in the past 24 hours.

The number of deaths posted one of the lowest levels recorded since mid-March when COVID-19 initially spread in the U.S. The number of individuals who died either directly or indirectly from COVID-19 in the U.S. totaled 285, bringing the number of individuals who have died either directly or indirectly from COVID-19 in the U.S. to 125,073.

As of 7:30 a.m. this morning a total of 15,825 individuals positive with COVID-19 are classified as in “critical / serious.” Again, no significant changes from one-day-to-the-next and lower in the past week than the previous week. These 15,825 individuals account for 1.5 percent of the total individuals currently positive with COVID-19 in the U.S.

The number of individuals who have combatted COVID-19 and survived based on the U.S. national recovery time period of 14 days totals 1,397,395. The number of COVID-19 recoveries increased by 38,256 individuals in the past 24 hours.

While the number of tests completed in the U.S. in the past 24 hours is less than the number of tests completed between Saturday and Sunday, the number is still significant at just under 600,000.  The total number of tests completed in the U.S. to-date is 32.6 million.  Globally, the country closest to the U.S. is Russia which has completed 19 million COVID-19 tests among its population to-date.

!!Sunday, June 28, 2020
Here is the update of the 2,532,572 individuals in the U.S. that have been tracked with having encountered COVID-19 to-date and how they break down in percentages in terms of status as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 41.4 percent; 41.6 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. BASED ON THE 14-DAY NATIONAL RECOVERY TIME — 53.7 percent; 53.4 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 4.9 percent; 5.0 percent yesterday.


Newly identified COVID-19 cases posted an increase of 43,581 — an increases of 4.2 percent of the 1,036,012 active cases as of yesterday at 12:01 a.m. ET. Today, Sunday, more than half of the new cases, just shy of 54 percent, were identified in California, Texas, Florida and Arizona. The five southeastern states — Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, and Mississippi — accounted for another 15 percent of the new cases. The current number of individuals diagnosed as currently active with COVID-19 in the United States. totals 1,048,644 individuals.

The net number of individuals active with COVID-19 today vs. yesterday — with recoveries and deaths taking place in the last 24 hours — is up 1.2 percent from yesterday with a net increase of 12,632. That is the net number of new cases across the entire United States. Based on the U.S. population of 330,342,293 that is an increase that represents and additional 0.004 percent of the U.S. population.

Since Florida is a neighbor state to Georgia, I thought that readers would find the map below of interest. It plots out the concentration of COVID-19 cases by ZIP Code. A couple of days ago, I shared the breakdown of cases by ethnicity/race. Also included below is a breakdown of the Florida COVID-19 cases to-date by ethnicity/race based on numbers released at 7:30 a.m. this morning.

The pocket ZIP Codes highlighted in red are also ZIP Codes that are home to a large percentage of the Hispanic-Latino service staff that supports area restaurants, hotels and recreational attractions — including Disney World, Universal Park, and Bush Gardens — plus the labor base that works in state construction and local city service sectors.

::::

Florida COVID-19 cases by ethnicity/race:

*Caucasian/White — 12.1 percent of the Florida COVID-19 Cases and 45.6 percent of the Florida population
*African-American — 25.4 percent of the Florida COVID-19 Cases and 16.4 percent of the Florida population
*Hispanic-Latino — 47.7 percent of the Florida COVID-19 Cases and 27.1 percent of the Florida population
*Asian-American — 1.2 percent of the Florida COVID-19 Cases and 2.9 percent of the Florida population
*Other — 13.6 percent of the Florida COVID-19 Cases and 8.0 percent of the Florida population.
+
+ 
The number of deaths directly or indirectly linked to COVID-19 increased by 512 deaths as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning, bringing the total number of U.S. deaths to 124,788.

The number of individuals who combatted COVID-19 and have now achieved full-status wellness, based on the U.S. national recovery time period of 14 days, increased by 30,437 individuals in the past 24 hours to 1,359,140 individuals.

I know it sounds repetitive, but the number of “critical / serious” cases of COVID-19 cases posted nearly the same number yesterday as the day before — 15,815 cases in the past 24 hours and 15,765 cases the day before. The average number of “critical / serious” COVID-19 cases in the past seven days is about six percent fewer than the average number of “critical / serious” COVID-19 cases that posted the previous seven days.

Finally, the number of COVID-19 tests completed in the U.S. in the past 24 hours set a new record high — 745,524 completed tests, bringing the total number of tests completed to less than 2,000 shy of 32 million.

As I have shared, if you feel so moved to donate to a cause, consider your local food bank. Also consider outreach programs that serve the local Hispanic-Latino communities.

Here are the national, state, and local-stats for today.

NATIONAL

Here is how the 2,488,991 individuals in the U.S. that have encountered COVID-19 to-date breaks down percentage-wise as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 41.6 percent, 42.1 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. BASED ON THE 14-DAY NATIONAL RECOVERY TIME —53.4 percent, 52.8 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.0 percent, 5.5 percent yesterday.
*New cases set another record high in the past 24 hours, with an increase of 47,341 cases, or an increase of 4.6 percent of the 1,028,020 active cases yesterday. Half of these cases, 50 percent, were identified in California, Texas, Florida and Arizona. Five southeastern states — Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, and Mississippi — accounted for 13 percent of the new cases. The current number of individuals diagnosed as currently active with COVID-19 in the U.S. totals 1,036,012 individuals.


The reason why the total number of active COVID-19 cases in the U.S. is not 47,341 individuals more is because just as new cases are being diagnosed and identified, individuals who have tested positive with COVID-19 are recovering from it. Articles in both the Wall Street Journal and New York Times actually made a short mention of the recoveries and the limited number of deaths in articles this morning.

Also taking place at 12:01 a.m. today, the number of individuals who battled COVID-19 and survived the national 14-day time lapse increased by 38,383 and that total now posts at 1,328,703.

The number of individuals who have died from COVID-19 directly or indirectly in the U.S. increased by 663 cases to 124,276 deaths tracked to-date at 12:01 a.m. ET this morning.

The number of individuals in hospitals classified as “critical/serious” remains essentially the same as yesterday, 15,765 as of 12:01 a.m. ET today. compared to 15,725 yesterday.

Medical teams completed just under 600,000 COVID-19 tests in the past 24 hours, bringing the total number of tests completed in the U.S. to 31,353,500 as of 7:30 a.m. this morning.

GEORGIA

Again, I caution readers to be aware that the state of Georgia is one of about a half dozen States in the U.S. that do not post accurate COVID-19 numbers of active cases vs. total cases.

A total of 72,995 cases of COVID-19 have been identified in Georgia since the tracking began in January of this year. Some of those cases have resulted in death while many cases have passed through the national 14 days time lapse. As of today, based on a day-by-day tracking of the cases, there are 2,770 deaths from COVID-19 and 31,388 active case in Georgia. A total of 38,837 individuals have survived COVID-19 in Georgia based on the national 14-day time lapse.

Of those active cases, 11,360 are concentrated in the five core counties of Atlanta - Fulton, DeKalb, Gwinnett, Cobb and Clayton Counties. Another 1,384 are located in Hall County and 885 are found in Dougherty County (Albany). A total of 661 are found active in Greater Athens, comprised of Athens-Clarke, Barrow, Jackson, Madison, Oglethorpe and Oconee Counties.

A number of readers have asked how the cases tracked in Georgia break down by ethnicity and race. Here is a break-down of case numbers as reported by Georgia Department of Public Health and posting today at 8:00 a.m. ET by race/ethnicity:

*White/Caucasians, who represent 45.9 percent of the Georgia state population, account for 33.4 percent of the COVID-19 cases tracked
*African-Americans, who represent 31.9 percent of the Georgia state population, account for 37.3 percent of the COVID-19 cases tracked
*Hispanic-Latinos, who represent 10.1 percent of the Georgia state population, account for 21.0 percent of the COVID-19 cases tracked
*Asian-Indian Americans, who represent 4.4 percent of the Georgia state population, account for 2.3 percent of the COIVD-19 cases tracked
*A mix of “Other” race/ethnicity, who represent 7.7 percent of the Georgia state population, account for 6.0 percent of the COVID-19 cases tracked.


GREATER ATLANTA & GAINESVILLE & ALBANY

Below is the weekly update of total cases, active cases and deaths for the five core counties of Atlanta plus the core counties of Gainesville and Albany where two out-breaks took place over the past 90 days.

The number of active cases across all five Atlanta counties has increased 7.5 percent in the last week. The largest percentage increase, 12.5 percent, is in Gwinnett County.

Similar to what is happening nationally, while active cases have increased, deaths have increased at essentially half the pace. While there are sources that speak about the delay between case identification and deaths, nationally the increased cases among those age 35-54 are not as critical/severe and only a limited number of cases are resulting in death.

The 11,360 active COVID-19 cases in Atlanta’s five core counties accounts for 0.30 percent of the population.

::::

GREATER ATHENS

Below is a similar update for Athens-Clarke County and each of the five attached counties that comprises the Greater Athens metro area.

While active cases have increased in Greater Athens in the past week, the pace is about half of the increased cases appearing in the five Atlanta core counties. Over the past week, three additional individuals died either directly or indirectly from COVID-19, and those deaths took place in just one county, Jackson County.

The largest percentage increase of active cases took place in Athens-Clarke County, 10.6 percent, with an increase of an additional 19 cases active today vs. this same time last week.

The 683 active COVID-19 cases in Greater Athens accounts for 0.19 percent of the population.

How you as an individual digest the news headlines and content is totally up to you. These numbers are intended to assist in grounding what is seen and heard on the airwaves and digital channels!

!!Friday, June 26, 2020
Here is how the 2,441,650 individuals in the United States, that have been tracked with having encountered COVID-19 to-date, breaks down as of 12:01 a.m. ET Friday morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 42.1 percent, 42.3 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. BASED ON THE 14-DAY NATIONAL RECOVERY TIME —52.8 percent, 52.4 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.5 percent, 5.3 percent yesterday.

Before I go any further with the daily numbers, I want you to be aware of some simple facts that, somehow, mainstream media — along with a combination of politicians and academics — fail to acknowledge:

#The increase in cases is being driven by four key states: California, Texas, Florida and Arizona. These four states posted nearly half of all the new cases in the past 24 hours.
#If you add up ALL the active cases in those four states it totals 309,310. The total number of active cases in New York and New Jersey combined is 415,618.
#Three of the four states — California, Texas and Florida — are the largest states in the U.S.
#The 309,310 active cases in the four states represents 0.31 percent of the 98,688,769 people residing in those four states.
#The 415,618 active cases in New York and New Jersey combined represents 1.46 percent of the 28,377,043 people residing in those two states
#The “explosion” of new cases in the four states is tracked directly to geographic areas dominated by new entry and first generation Americans as well as others working largely blue-collar and trade jobs.
#Yesterday set a new daily record for the number of tests completed in one day — 674,102 COVID-19 tests — the largest gains posted in a set of sites, including mobile testing sites, that specifically reached out to first generation Americans and blue-collar/trade workers.


New cases did post the highest daily gain yesterday — 40,184 new cases with essentially half — 48.4 percent of all new cases concentrated in Los Angeles, Houston, Miami-Ft. Lauderdale, and Phoenix. Another 6,220 cases, 0r 15.5 percent, took place in Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama and Mississippi. Similar to what was reported in the Atlanta news yesterday, there are efforts in other Southeastern states to reach out to urban blue-collar and trade neighborhoods where conventional testing centers have not adequately reached.

The mainstream media is correct in citing that the new wave of cases being diagnosed are posting a higher percentage of positive COVID-19 among “younger adults, but the “younger adults” fall into the age 35-54 year old range, not the age 18-34 year old range. Mainstream media is also correct in reporting that there is not only a lower death rate among the age 35-54 year olds, but the encounters of those battling COVID-19 are less debilitating and more similar to battling the conventional flu. Furthermore mainstream media is correct in reporting that despite the increased diagnosis of COVID-19 in the expansion of testing, the number of “critical/serious” cases continues to decline and the number of deaths remains low. The number of “critical/serious” cases posting in the last 24 hours is 15,723; the number of individuals dying either directly or indirectly from COVID-19 in the last 24 hours posted at 649 individuals across the U.S.

Nationally, there are now 1,290,017 COVID-19 individuals who battled COVID-19 and survived based on the national 14 day national time lapse.

Below is the break-down of active COVID-19 cases by state comparing the active case totals from 12:01 a.m. ET today with the case numbers from one week ago.

::::

I am sure that there are many individuals reading these daily updates that get very frustrated attempting to track a sense of reality in conventional news reporting.

Today, the Wall Street Journal is running a headline article titled “Millions More Got The Virus Than First Thought.” It cites that as many as 20 million more Americans actually experienced COVID-19 and had no or very limited symptoms.

Nowhere in the article:

*Does it cite similar speculation of something like this occurring in the rest of the world.
*Is there any calculation that the death rate of COVID-19 would then dramatically drop as a percentage and actually become much more aligned to the death rate of the flu.
*Is there any inference that if the infection rate is that much higher, that COVID-19 is going to go through a natural decline because of an increase in natural immunity.

And then again, I have to remember that journalists are not scientists nor medical experts.  Commentary by scientific and medical experts is actually limited in the WSJ article.

I also have to remember that even respected newspapers, known for specialty in business and financial news, are not likely to fly off the racks — physical as well as digital racks — with only news stories about stock market fluctuations and CEO management issues.

Tonight, let’s raise a toast to the sky falling — and what the mass public mindset and mainstream media is. by damn, convinced is happening — and to how we all strive to dwell in reality to take on tomorrow… .

Here is how the 2,401,466 individuals in the the United States, who have been tracked with having encountered COVID-19 to-date, breaks down percentage-wise as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 42.3 percent of the 2,401,466 total; 43.2 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. BASED ON THE 14-DAY NATIONAL RECOVERY TIME — 52.4 percent of the 2,401,466 total; 52.7 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.3 percent of the 2,401,466 total; 5.1 percent yesterday
+
+ 
New COVID-19 cases posted higher again yesterday — 38,386 new cases — with essentially half, 49.6 percent, of them taking place in Los Angeles, Houston, Miami-Ft. Lauderdale, and Phoenix. Another 4,654 cases, or 12 percent, took place in a combination of Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina.

This morning, the local Atlanta news media reports a record number of individuals being tested in the city of Brookhaven are posting one of the highest levels of positive tests in the state. The local Atlanta news media is also acknowledging that “a high percentage of the positive cases are occurring among the Hispanic-Latino workforce population.” A high concentration of the Hispanic-Latino population resides in Atlanta along the Buford Highway corridor — a portion of which is located in the city of Brookhaven.

Just as yesterday, the number of “critical/serious” COVID-19 cases is remaining nearly the same, 16,507 cases reported yesterday and 16,541 cases reported in the last 24 hours.

The number of full recoveries based on the 14-day national timeframe increased by 16,224 to a total of 1,260,605 individuals who have successfully combated COVID-19 and returned to being among those active in the United States.

The number of individuals dying directly or indirectly from COVID-19 increased by 808 new deaths. Tomorrow, I will post a chart that tracks the number of deaths occurring in the past couple of weeks.

In the past 24 hours, the number of tests completed in the U.S. increased by more than 500,000, with the total now posting over 30 million tests completed.

The Hispanic-Latino population that drives the American workforce is a very, very critical driver of U.S. economics. With many construction projects just now renewing activity after 90 days of hiatus, the Hispanic-Latino workforce — mostly in their 30s and 40s — are finally back earning income again. Keep in mind that a share who are not tracked through formal U.S. channels have not been able to access unemployment compensation.

In Georgia, the state has worked to aggressively contain and limit the impact of COVID-19 on the workforce that drives the Georgia poultry mills. There are similar programs taking place in the four critical U.S. hot-spots in an effort to assist the first-generation American workforce.

Here is how the 2,363,080 individuals n the U.S. who have  been tracked with having encountered COVID-19 to-date breaks down percentage-wise as of 12:01 a.m. ET this Wednesday morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 42.2 percent of the 2,363,080 total; 42.6 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. BASED ON THE 14-DAY NATIONAL RECOVERY TIME — 52.7 percent of the 2,363,080 total; 52.2 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.1 percent of the 2,363,080 total; 5.2 percent yesterday



New cases did post higher yesterday than the average tracking total — 36,015 new cases — and as I have shared over the last several days, the new cases are concentrated in not only four states — California, Texas, Florida and Arizona — they are concentrated in a set of key metro areas: Los Angeles, Houston, Miami-Ft. Lauderdale, and Phoenix. The four states combined posted 52 percent of the new cases in the past 24 hours.

Several readers emailed me over the last several days asking about the demographic mix of the new cases in the four key states. There is some tracking information reported by local municipal tracking agencies and there are consistencies being reported across all four states — particularly among all four metro areas that dominate where the cases are being reported:

*More than 3/4ths of the cases are occurring among individuals age 45+ … while still accounting for a lower percentage than age 45+, there are higher incidence levels taking place in the 25-44 age group
*Hispanic-Latinos are accounting for a higher percentage of the new cases when compared to African-American, Asian-American and Caucasian
*The neighborhoods of origin post income levels below the state averages.



Local COVID-19 teams are indeed “rifle-targeting” efforts to test, identify, diagnose, and contain the local outbreaks in each of the key metro areas of case concentration. There is similarity of the outbreaks in Georgia’s Hall, Barrow and Jackson Counties with the outbreaks in the key counties in California, Texas, Florida and Arizona.

Also of local note, the three southeastern states that I highlighted yesterday — Georgia, Mississippi and South Carolina, which represented 11 percent of the new cases yesterday —represent 9 percent of new cases in the counts reported today.

On a national level, as illustrated in the breakdown of the total to-date — 2,363,080 —the new cases are being counter-balanced by case recoveries. In the past 24 hours, 36,015 new COVID-19 cases in the U.S. have been tracked and also in the past 24 hours, 29,452 individuals have survived and crossed the 14-day recovery timeframe. The positive cases identified in Georgia did post a higher number in the past 24 hours, but the number of tests completed in the key counties of Fulton, DeKalb, Gwinnett and Cobb are also higher.

There are now 1,244,381 COVID-19 survivors as of 12:01 a.m. ET today in the U.S.

The number of individuals dying directly or indirectly from COVID-19 increased 863 cases yesterday to a total of 122,156 for the year. The death by state breakdown is a different matrix than the postings of new COVID-19 cases. The four states accounting for 52 percent of new cases represent 24 percent of the deaths — there is a delay in cases identified and deaths, but the critical levels of the new cases is not at the level of the initial cases tracked in March and April.

The number of “critical/serious” cases remains unchanged — 16,507 active “serious/critical" cases posting since 12:01 a.m. ET today and 16,500 active “serious/critical” cases posting yesterday.

!!Tuesday, June 23, 2020
Here is how the 2,327,065 individuals in the U.S. who, having encountered COVID-19, have been tracked percentage-wise to-date as of 12:01 a.m. this morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 42.6 percent of the 2,327,065, 43.1 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. BASED ON THE 14-DAY NATIONAL RECOVERY TIME —52.2 percent of the 2,327,065, 51.6 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.2 percent of the 2,327,065, 5.3 percent yesterday.


Next are where the numbers were one month ago, as posted on May 23, 2020, compared with the numbers today:

*New cases in past 24 hours — 25,472, a raw count increase of 1.5 percent on May 23; 31,496 today and a raw count increase of 1.3 percent
*Active cases in the U.S. — 1,808,276 on May 23; 990,843 today
*Full recoveries in the U.S. — 402,169 on May 23; 1,214,929 today
*Critical/Serious cases — 17,135 on May 23; 16,500 cases today
*Tests completed — 14 million on May 23; 29 million today.



Isn’t it amazing how the landscape changed in just one month — even more so with all the people no longer house bound! And, isn’t it amazing how the mainstream news media refuses to report the tracked changes!

In the past 24 hours, 31,496 new COVID-19 cases in the U.S. have been tracked.  Also in the past 24 hours, 30,574 individuals have crossed the 14-day recovery timeframe and lived through the disease.

Just as posted over the course of the last week, 50 percent of the new cases tracked are in the four “outbreak” states… California, Texas, Florida and Alabama.  The news media cited Georgia and Mississippi in this morning’s reports of “the second round breakout of COVID-19 hitting the U.S.”  Georgia, Mississippi and South Carolina do post the next highest counts of new cases behind the four “outbreak” states and together those three Southeastern states account for another 11 percent of the new cases tracked in the past 24 hours.

The number of individuals who either died directly or indirectly from COVID-19 yesterday, Monday, through midnight totaled 363 individuals. Again, another day of daily COVID-19 related deaths tracking below 500 and I cannot find it being reported as such in digital, print, or broadcast news media.

There are now 1,214,929 COVID-19 survivors as of 12:01 a.m. today.

Yesterday the count of "critical/serious” COVID-19 cases tracked posted at 16,477; today it is posted at 16,500.

!!Monday, June 22, 2020
Here is how the 2,295,569 individuals in the U.S. who have been tracked having encountered COVID-19 breakdown percentage-wise to-date as of 12:01 a.m. this morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 43.1 percent of the 2,295,569; 43.5 from the total yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. BASED ON THE 14-DAY RECOVERY TIME — 51.6 percent of the 2,295,569; 51.1 percent from yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.3 percent of the 2,295,569;, 5.4 percent yesterday



In the past 24 hours there have been 26,079 new COVID-19 cases in the U.S. and there have also been 24,353 COVID-19 cases that passed the 14-day recovery benchmark.

Just as posted each day since Friday, 50 percent of the new cases tracked in four states: California, Texas, Florida and Arizona.

As of 12:01 a.m. today, the number of current active cases in these four states compares as follows as a percentage of the state population.  New York is included as a comparative anchor percentage.

*New York — active cases 1.51 percent of the population
*California — active cases 0.31 percent of the population
*Texas — active cases 0.15 percent of the population
*Florida — active cases 0.34 percent of the population
*Arizona — active cases 0.60 percent of the population
These are not the percentages of new cases… these percentages reflect the number of total active cases divided by the state population.

The number of individuals who died directly or indirectly from COVID-19 in the past 24 hours totals 267 — The lowest level posting over the last 90 days in terms of COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. — and the mainstream media is not reporting it.

As shared yesterday, the number of critical / serious cases of COVID-19 remains fixed at an average of 16,500 with 16,477 serious cases posting at 12:01 a.m. today — again, a number that the mass media is not reporting.

Here is the breakdown of the percentage of individuals in the United States — 2,269,490 — who have encountered COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. this morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES — 43.5 percent, 43.8 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES BASED ON THE 14-DAY RECOVERY TIME —51.1 percent, 50.8 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.4 percent, 5.0 percent yesterday


In the past 24 hours there have been 33,388 new cases in the U.S. and 23,941 COVID-19 casespassed the 14-day recovery benchmark.

There are 988,825 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning, or, 15,725 more active cases than yesterday.

Nearly half of the new cases are concentrated in four states: California, Texas, Florida, and Arizona. The cases in those states are very geographically specific in terms of where the cases are being identified:

*California: 4,363 cases:
Three counties account for 68.6 percent of the cases
Los Angeles and Orange counties, two Los Angeles counties, represent 55.0 percent of the new cases.
San Joaquin County is just south of Sacramento and it represents another 13.6 percent.

*Texas: 4,250 cases:
Four counties account for 64.8 percent of the cases:
Houston, San Antonia, Dallas, and Austin counties.
The host county of Houston posts the highest and accounts for 35.3 percent of the cases by itself.

*Florida: 4,049 cases:
Four counties account for 58.5 percent of the cases:
Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties, the Greater Miami/Ft. Lauderdale/West Palm Beach area, together account for 45.3 percent of the 4,049 cases.
Hillsborough County, the host county of Tampa, accounts for another 13.2 percent of the cases.

*Arizona: 3,109 cases:
Maricopa, the host county of Phoenix, accounts for 74.1 percent of the cases reported across Arizona State-wide

As of 12:01 a.m., the number of individuals dying directly or indirectly from COVID-19 increased by another 573 individuals. The number of deaths per day over the past 10 days has averaged less than 750 individuals.

Also, the number of critical/serious cases of COVID-19 remains essentially the same as yesterday — 16,529 as of 12:01 a.m. ET today and 16,503 from yesterday. This daily statistic has remained at nearly the same number now for the past three weeks.

The number of individuals in the U.S. who have survived through encountering COVID-19 represent 50.8 percent of total cases identified in the U.S. Globally, 53.2 percent of individuals identified with COVID-19 have combatted the coronavirus and are now active-virus-free.

The number of tests conducted in the U.S. is now just shy of 29 million. The U.S. ranks number one on the number of tests conducted globally, Russia ranks number two with just shy of 17 million tests completed.

Here is the breakdown of the percentage of individuals in the United States — 2,236,102 — who have encountered COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. this morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES — 43.8 percent, 44.2 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES BASED ON THE 14 DAY RECOVER TIME — 50.8 percent, 50.4 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.0 percent, 5.4 percent yesterday.


In the past 24 hours there have been 33,539 new cases in the U.S. and there are also 25,969 COVID-19 cases that passed the 14-day recovery benchmark.
There are 979,951 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning. That is 6,851 more than yesterday or an increase of 0.7 percent.

The new active cases are concentrated in California, Texas, Florida, North Carolina and Arizona.

The number of survivors increased to 1,136,061 individuals in the past 24 hours.

As of 12:01 a.m. ET, an additional 719 individuals died either directly or indirectly from COVID-19 in the U.S.

The number of individuals dying has remained low and so has the number of serious cases over the course of the last two weeks.

Here is the break-down for the five core counties of Georgia.

The number of confirmed cases has increased by 10.2 percent in the core Atlanta counties.

The number of active cases this week posts at 10,555 — 457 more active cases this week than last week.

The number of active cases in Hall and Dougherty County are down from the number of Active cases posting last week.

::::

Here is the break-down for the six core counties that make up Greater Athens.

The number of confirmed cases has increased by 10.2 percent.

The number of active cases this week posts at 661 — 23 more active cases this week than last week.

Here is the breakdown of the percentage of individuals in the United States — 2,236,102 — who have encountered COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. this morning:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES — 44.2 percent, 44.3 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES BASED ON THE 14 DAY RECOVERY TIME — 50.4 percent, 50.2 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.4 percent, 5.5 percent yesterday.


In the past 24 hours, there are 27,924 new cases in the U.S. and there are also 18,296 COVID-19 cases that passed the 14-day recovery benchmark. Those passing the 14-day recovery benchmark moves them from the “ACTIVE” bucket and into the “FULLY RECOVERED” bucket.

There are now 973,100 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning. That is an increase of 8,881 cases from yesterday or 0.9 percent.

The number of survivors increased to 1,110,092 individuals and as noted yesterday, continue to account for more than 50 percent of the overall 2,202,563 individuals who have encountered COVID-19.

As of 12:01 a.m. ET, an additional 747 individuals died either directly or indirectly from COVID-19 in the U.S., that is an increase of 0.6 percent from the tally of those who died yesterday.

The number of COVID-19 tests completed in the U.S. now totals 26,723,179. It is projected that this total will be over 35 million by this time next week. In some conversations with a number of healthcare sources here in Georgia, there does appear to be a delay of up to 5-7 days in the processing of the tests. So there is a back-log in when individuals are being tested and when they are receiving results.

The five key States — California, Florida, Texas, North Carolina and Arizona — highlighted by the media and accounting for 33 percent of the population of the U.S. accounted for 14,627 of the 27,924 new cases reported from yesterday or 52.4 percent… a percentage up from 50.3 percent yesterday.

A break-down of the key states tracked by many of the readers are highlighted in the chart below compared to one week earlier. For the states tracked below, active cases increased by 1.3 percent over this same time last week.

The media continues to speculate whether the U.S. is slipping into a “second wave” of cases. A number of politicians are following with calls to tighten restrictions on social, retail and business circulation. Two months ago, during the middle of April in the midst of the “first wave,” the number of active cases in these key states posted a weekly increase in the 15-20 percent range.

The largest percentage increase in the last week has taken place in California and, as can be seen below, that is an increase of 16.0 percent. Three counties represent 70 percent of those outbreaks — Los Angeles, Riverside and San Bernardino Counties. In terms of all active cases, 65 percent of the total active cases in California are concentrated in one county, Los Angeles County.

I encourage readers to digest news clips broadcast and digital main-stream media release with speculation. You have the opportunity to question the mechanics of the context of how the numbers are being assessed and compared.

!!Thursday, June 18, 2020

Here are the three numbers that breakdown the total of 2,174,639 individuals in the U.S. that have been tracked with having encountered COVID-19 to-date as of 12:01 a.m. this morning.

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 44.3 percent, 45.2 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. BASED ON 14 DAY RECOVERING TIME — 50.2 percent, 49.2 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.5 percent, 5.6 percent yesterday.
To put the numbers in perspective, in the past 24 hours there are 26,071 new cases in the U.S., but there are also 32,755 COVID-19 cases that passed the 14-day recovery benchmark, moving them from the “ACTIVE” bucket and into the “FULL-RECOVERED” bucket

There are now 964,219 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning. That is a decrease of 7,493 active cases from yesterday.

The number of survivors increased to 1,091,796 individuals. Survivors now account for more than 50 percent of the overall 2,174,639 individuals who have encountered COVID-19. Its very sad that the mainstream media refuses to publish that number.

As of 12:01 a.m. ET, an additional 809 individuals died either directly or indirectly from COVID-19 in the U.S. That is an increase of 0.7 percent from those who died yesterday.

The number of tests completed in the U.S. increased to over 26 million yesterday: 26,243,811 as of 7:30 a.m. this morning.

Every morning when I get up and have coffee, I turn on my television to CNN and tune my radio to a local station, as I read the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times. This morning the news media was fixated on California, Florida, Texas, North Carolina, and Arizona, and reported that there is “a record-breaking surge” of new COVID-19 cases in these states that is “taking over the hospitals!” I promise you, I do not make this up

For readers, I went in and specifically reviewed each of the five “COVID-19 surge states” plus included New York state as a base of comparison.

First, mainstream media is correct that the five states do account for a larger percentage of COVID-19 cases in the past 24 hours than the states representing the rest of the U.S. population. The five states accounted for 50 percent of new cases, but only represent 33 percent of the U.S. population. The break-down with a comparison to New York State is included below.

::::

The key numbers to note:

*While the new case numbers in the media-highlighted five states is significant, so, too, are the number of total tests completed — as tests are expanded, and there is better detection of COVID-19
*While the new case numbers are comparatively high, the increase in active cases remains at a single-digital percentage increase
*The percent of the state populations currently COVIV-19 active is significantly low compared to New York. And, while not included in the chart, significantly low compared to more than 6 other states like New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts


As readers know, I do like to bet. I would place $25 down on a bet that the cases reported represent tests completed in more than the past 24 hours. Somewhere in processing the tests there was a “hold-up” that occurred and the time frame of testing and results reported became extended beyond 24 hours. I will track the cases reported in the Five States specifically over the next three to five days.

Overall the situation with COVID-19 in the U.S. IS IMPROVING despite what MSM highlights. Tomorrow I will provide a much richer break-down by key states of interest.

!!Wednesday, June 17, 2020

Yesterday a couple of people sent in questions asking exactly what the three percentages that I now use to begin each daily update mean.
These three numbers reflect the three "buckets" of where the TOTAL U.S. COVID-19 CASES to-date fall by the percentage of active, of 14-day recovered and of individuals who died either directly or indirectly from COVID-19. These percentages are derived from a combination of national and state-level tracking sources. National numbers are primarily derived from reports by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Johns Hopkins Center for System Science, and Worldometer hourly updates.

Specifically:

#These reflect the U.S. … they are not global
#The percentages add up to 100.0 percent
#The numbers are further supported in the daily text that follows after the numbers

So, for today's numbers, the total cases reported to-date are as follows:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 45.2 percent, 46.1 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 49.2 percent, 48.4 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.6 percent, 5.5 percent yesterday
 

There are now 971,712 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning.  That is a decrease of 7,574 active cases from yesterday.

Many ponder, but wait, how can the number of active cases be declining if the news media reports that there are new outbreaks taking place in states like Texas, Florida, Georgia and California? How?

Looking back to the first part of May, roughly a month ago, the average number of daily new cases hovered around 33,000 - 35,000 a day.  As I published on Monday, the average number of daily new cases now hover anywhere between 10,000 - 15,000 fewer each day.

More importantly, the peak of the infection bell-curve nationally came about 30 days ago. The "bump" in the bell-curve that drove up the infection pace is now shifting over to the numbers of those fully-recovered. Those 33,000 - 35,000 daily new infections are now shifting over to similar numbers for fully-recovered — the number of survivors is averaging in the 25,000 - 35,000 range each day (less the 5.6 percent of individuals who are not surviving.)

There are also some reports that increases in COVID-19 cases is happening among younger individuals as a result of relaxed social gatherings, protests and events. According to recent CDC statistics, last week, 83.2 percent of the new cases reported over the course of the week took place among individuals age 65+.  The week before last, 82.3 percent of the new cases reported over the course of the week took place among individuals age 65+.

There are now 1,059,041 14-day COVID-19 survivors in the U.S.  That is an increase of 3.1 percent from yesterday.

The number of deaths directly or indirectly related to COVID-19 in the U.S. as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning increased by 849 individuals to 117,815 or an increase of 0.7 percent from yesterday. Two weeks ago, the daily death count was averaging 2,500 people per day.

An editorial is running in today's Wall Street Journal titled, "There Isn't A Coronavirus Second Wave." Aside from citing the same stats that I share with readers, the author of the editorial goes on to note that the "hot states the media cite as fueling the second wave" have "dramatically increased testing that has allowed public officials to identify the settings of the outbreaks — prisons, nursing homes and meatpacking facilities — and contain the outbreaks." The outbreaks in Hall County Georgia at the poultry processing plants is cited in the editorial.

In terms of testing, the number of COVID-19 tests conducted in the U.S. as of 7:30 a.m. ET this morning totaled over 25.7 million. The daily number of tests completed in the U.S. now averages around 500,000 per day.

*ACTIVE COVIDE-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 46.1 percent, 46.7 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED CASES — 48.4 percent, 47.8 percent yesterday 
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.5 percent, 5.5 percent yesterday
 

There are now 979,286 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. as of 12:01 a.m. ET this morning. That is a decrease of 1,819 active cases from yesterday.

There are now 1,026,866 14-day survivors of COVID-19 in the U.S. as of 12:01 a.m this morning.  This is an increase of 2.2 percent from this same time yesterday. The rate of new individuals surviving is slightly outpacing the rate of new cases. This is something mainstream media does not highlight.

The number of COVID-19 deaths in the past 24 hours — 425 individuals tied either directly or indirectly to COVID-19 in the U.S. as of 12:01 a.m. ET the morning, an increase of 0.4 percent.

The number of "critical/serious" cases totaled 16,716 at 12:01 a.m. ET, a slight increase of 12 more individuals from yesterday.

As of 7:30 a.m. ET this morning, a total of 25,259,077 tests have been conducted in the U.S.

Just FYI to readers, I was tested a second time late last week and the results came back negative again. I do circulate among the "masses" as part of my work in interviewing and connecting with the marketplace. Given the nature of who has been tested to-date in the U.S. — that vast majority over the age of 40 — essentially 10 percent of the U.S. populace over the age 40 has now been tested to-date.

Here the breakdown for the total case numbers of individuals in the United States with COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. today:

*ACTIVE COVIDE-19 CASES IN THE U.S. — 46.7 percent, 47.1 percent yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED CASES — 47.8 percent, 47.3 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.5 percent, 5.6 percent yesterday
 

There are now 981,105 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. This is a decrease of 271 cases from yesterday.  More individuals are registering as "recovered" vs. "newly infected" — something that few in the mainstream media are reporting. More on what the media is focusing on in its news content momentarily

The number of COVID-19 deaths in the past 24 hours is one of the lowest numbers to post — 331 individuals died either directly or indirectly from COVID-19 as of 12:01 a.m. this morning. One month ago, the average number of deaths in the U.S. per day hovered around 2,000 individuals.

The number of "critical/serious" cases totaled 16,704 at 12:01 a.m. today. The number of "critical/serious" cases has hovered around 17,000 for more than 30 days and is now at around 16,750 each day.

As of 7:30 a.m. ET, a total of 24,794,617 tests have been completed in the U.S. To put that number in perspective, 7.5 percent of Americans have taken a COVID-19 test to-date, 0.6 percent of Americans have been tracked as infected with COVID-19 to-date. The ratio between testing and identification is currently running at 11.8 percent — For every 100 individuals being tested, 12 individual are testing positive with COVID-19 and 88 are not.

Now, let's look at what the media is reporting… a "second wave" of COVID-19 impacting key states.

The appearance and spread of COVID-19 in the U.S. trailed behind other global players like China, Italy and France. Here in the U.S., states like California, Texas, and even right here in Georgia lagged behind states like New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts and Michigan. The "top of the bell curve" for the U.S. lagged behind other countries. Some states have posted increases like California while other states like New York have posted decreases — that's because some states are at different points of COVID-19 evolution.

But numbers do not lie. Below is the number of new cases in the U.S. posted each day over the last two weeks:

*June 1 — 20,350
*June 2 — 22,153
*June 3 — 21,882
*June 4 — 20,578
*June 5 — 22,268
*June 6 — 25,393
*June 7 — 22,836
*June 8 — 18,905
*June 9 — 19,044
*June 10 — 19,056
*June 11 — 20,852
*June 12 — 23,300
*June 13 — 27,220
*June 14 — 25,302
*June 15 — 20,002
 

On June 1, a total of 17,672,567 U.S. tests had been completed. As of today, 40 percent more tests have since been completed. The number of positive identification has posted limited changes from one day to the next despite the increase in the number of tests being administered.

!!Sunday, June 14, 2020
Today's COVID-19 numbers for the United States: 

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES — 47.1 percent, 48.0% yesterday
*FULLY-RECOVERED CASES — 47.3% … 46.3% yesterday, or, the first time that fully-recovered cases reach a higher percentage than active COVID-19 cases
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.6%
 

There are now 981,376 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. This is a decrease of 6,572 active COVID-19 cases, or 0.7% from yesterday.
Again, ACTIVE cases includes individuals tracked as testing positive with COVID-19 and those individuals battling and surviving the coronavirus over the course of 14 days. While 25,302 individuals were designated as positive with COVID-19 in the past 24 hours, 30,172 individuals survived 14 days and entered into the recovery column also in the past 24 hours. In addition, 702 individuals did not survive and died either directly or indirectly from COVID-19.

The total number of COVID-19 survivors as of 12:01 a.m. today now totals 984,106 individuals and is growing.

The number of critical/serious COVID-19 cases totaled 16,344 at 12:01 a.m. ET, a slight increase of 31 cases nation-wide from 24 hours ago.

As of 7:30 a.m. ET today, a total of 24,292,171 COVID-19 tests have been completed in the U.S. That is an increase of just over 5 million more COVID-19 tests taking place in the last week. This time last week, 19,096,671 COVID-19 tests had been completed in the U.S.

To put this in perspective, in just one week, the total number of tests completed in the U.S. increased more than 20% and the average COVID-19 positive cases diagnosed per day — based on a five day average — has increased barely 10%.

!!Saturday, June 13, 2020
Today's three COVID-19 numbers in the United States:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES — 48.0 percent, 48.3 percent yesterday
*FULLY RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES — 46.3 percent, 46.1 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.6 percent, no percentage change from yesterday
NATIONAL:
There are now 987,948 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. This is an increase of 8,534 cases or 0.9 percent from yesterday.

The number of critical/serious CCOVID-19 cases totaled 16,313 at 12:01 ET, a drop of just over 500 cases from the day before, or nearly 3 percent.

As of 12:01am this morning, a total of 115,208 individuals in the U.S. died directly or indirectly from COVID-19, an increase of 791 individuals from yesterday or an increase of 0.7 percent.

The chart below is in an article in the current weekend edition of the Wall Street Journal. It charts how strong the age dynamic plays in COVID-19 deaths. Individuals over the age of 75 are accounting for over 60 percent of those who die from COVID-19.

::::

There are now 953,934 recoveries in the U.S. based on the 14 day time period of recovery. The gap difference between those currently battling COVID-19 and those fully recovered is a difference now of 34,014 individuals. Again, these are numbers that the MSM does not chose to highlight in their news content.

GREATER ATLANTA + Albany & Gainesville:
Below is a break-down that compares confirmed cases and deaths of COVID-19 from last Saturday morning  to this morning of the five core counties of Atlanta plus the two hot-spots in the state — Gainesville and Albany. The center column, highlighted in green, is the key column. 

The number of active cases:

*In the five Atlanta Counties it is up barely over 1.0 percent from 9,990 active cases last week
*Hall County continues to be a statewide hot-spot posting an increase from 1,661 active cases last week, an increase of 12.5 percent
*Dougherty County is up slightly more in active cases from 934 last week, an increase of 2.1 percent

The number of deaths increased nearly 13 percent from 756 a week ago to 854 as of this morning.

The 19,375 active case in the Greater Atlanta Five Core Counties represent 0.51 percent of the Five County population.

::::

GREATER ATHENS:
Below is a like chart that documents confirmed cases and deaths in the six county zone of greater Athens-Clarke County.

While there is some fluctuation in the active case numbers taking place over the past week, the total number of active cases remains the same this week as it was last week for the region. The number of active cases in Athens-Clarke County is 1 case lower than it was last week. Barrow and Jackson Counties are posting the most significant number of cases — three deaths occurred in Barrow County and one additional person died in Madison County.

The number of deaths in Athens-Clarke County remains the same and has remained at the count level of 15 individuals for several weeks. The number of active cases in Athens-Clarke County is one person less than it was last week.

The 175 active cases in Athens-Clarke County represents 0.13 percent of the Clarke County population.

Enjoy the weekend ahead. Stay safe — and wear those seat-belts!!!

!!Friday, June 12, 2020
I hope everyone is surviving through this onslaught of the mass media!  Again, we should be grateful for the existence of alternative media options.

Today's three COVID-19 numbers in the United States:
    *ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES — 48.3 percent, 48.6 percent yesterday 52.6 percent one week ago on Friday 5/6
    *FULLY RECOVERED CASES — 46.1 percent, 45.8 percent yesterday 41.6 percent one week ago on Friday 5/6
    *DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.6 percent, 5.6 percent yesterday 5.8 percent one week ago on Friday 5/6

There are now 979,414 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. This is an increase of 4,852 cases or 0.5 percent from yesterday. As can be seen in the chart below, there are a few states where there is broader fluctuation — California, Florida, Michigan and North Carolina — making the news.

The number of critical/serious COVID-19 cases totaled 16,817 at 12:01 a.m. ET … a number that remains essentially unchanged.

As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, a total of 114,47 individuals in the U.S. died directly or indirectly from COVID-19, an increase of 904 individuals from yesterday, or, an increase of 0.8 percent.

There are now 936,038 recoveries in the U.S. based on the national 14 day time period of recovery. There is a gap difference of just over 43,000 individuals between the total of those recovered from COVID-19 and those quarantined battling COVID-19. I predict that the number of survivors will supersede the number battling the coronavirus by Monday, if not sooner.

Here is the breakdown of the numbers for a set of key states tracked for readers based on the 14-day time period of recovery.

::::

Tomorrow, I will highlight specific areas of Atlanta and the greater Athens-Clarke County area.

!!Thursday, June 11, 2020

Here are today's three COVID-19 numbers for the U.S.:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES — 48.6 percent, 48.6 percent yesterday
*FULLY RECOVERED CASES —45.8 percent, 45.7 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.6 percent, 5.7 percent yesterday

There are now 974,562 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. This is an increase of 10,784 active cases or 1.1 percent from yesterday.

The number of critical/serious COVID-19 cases totaled 16,838 as of 12:01 a.m. this morning in the U.S., a number that remains essentially unchanged.

As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, a total of 113,513 individuals have died directly or indirectly from COVID-19 in the U.S., an increase of 982 deaths from yesterday or 0.9 percent.

There are now 918,494 full recoveries in the U.S., an increase of 1.0 percent from 24 hours ago.

As I have communicated several times in the past, there is significant variance from one state to the next in how each state defines, "fully-recovered."

States like Georgia, Florida and Ohio work with an extended time frame from when a person is first diagnosed with COVID-19 and when the person is designated as a "survivor," and free to access Main Street again. The greatest factor influencing the numbers is the time period, 14 or 28 days, states define as the timeframe needed before full-recovery is declared.

Friday I will provide a break-down of cases and status by key states. I will report the numbers with the consistent 14-day timeframe for designation to full-recovery across the states.

Here is the percentage of full-recovery of COVID-19 cases per the countries listed as of this morning at 7:30am ET.

*Belgium — 27.5 percent
*Brazil — 49.1 percent
*Canada — 58.3 percent
*France — 46.3 percent
*India — 49.1 percent
*Ireland — 90.0 percent
*Italy — 71.1 percent
*Germany — 91.5 percent
*Japan — 88.6 percent
*Russia — 51.2 percent
*Switzerland — 92.5 percent
*U.S. — 45.8 percent
 

!!Wednesday, June 10, 2020

Here are the three COVID-19 numbers for the U.S.:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES — 48.6 percent, 48.9 percent yesterday
*FULLY RECOVERED CASES — 45.7 percent, 45.4 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 —5.7 percent, 5.7 percent yesterday

There are now 963,778 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. This is a slight increase of 2,035 active cases, or 0.2 percent, from yesterday.

The number of "critical/serious" cases as of 12:01 a.m. this morning in the U.S. is 16,952, or 1.8 percent of active COVID-19 cases.

The number of deaths increased by 1,093 individuals either directly or indirectly linked to COVID-19, increasing the total number to 112,531 since the coronavirus started being tracked at the beginning of the calendar year.

!!Tuesday, June 9, 2020
Here are today's three COVID-19 numbersfor the U.S.:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES — 48.9 percent; 50.0 percent yesterday
*FULLY RECOVERED CASES — 45.4 percent; 44.3 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY/INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.7 percent; 5.7 percent yesterday.

I suggested last week that within seven to ten days, we would see nearly an equal number of active cases as fully recovered cases. My prediction now is we will reach that before the weekend ahead.

There are now 961,743 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. This is a decrease of 13,314 active cases, or 1.4 percent, from yesterday.

The number of "critical/serious" cases posts at 16,907 as of 12:01 a.m. in the U.S. or 1.8 percent of active COVID-19 cases.

The number of deaths increased by 586 individuals either directly or indirectly linked to COVID-19 increasing the total number to 111,438.

The number of tests completed in the U.S. is closing in quickly on 22 million — as of this morning at 7:30 a.m., a total of 21,725,064 COVID-19 tests had been completed in the U.S.

There are now 893,480 fully recovered individuals who battled COVID-19 that are back in the Mainstream U.S.

An article is running in today's Wall Street Journal that reports a number of Asian and South Pacific countries are reporting little-to-no active cases of COVID-19 and that a fair share of European countries are closing in on active cases representing less than 10 percent of the total COVID-19 case numbers.

Not only are these countries closing in on limited-to-no COVID-19 presence, they are quickly becoming 100 percent up and running with social and work force interaction.

!!Monday, June 8, 2020
There are now 975,057 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S.  This is a decrease of 12,481 active cases or 1.3 percent from yesterday.

This morning's New York Times, Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post are filled with speculation about the next out-break of COVID-19; the speculation focused on the impending surge in new COVID-19 cases generated by the current human and civil rights demonstrations.

Back in May, May 13, 2020, to be specific, Worldometer issued a break out of COVID-19 cases by age group:

*Age 0-17 — 0.1 percent
*Age 18-44 — 3.9 percent
*Age 45-64 — 22.4 percent
*Age 65-74 — 24.9 percent
*Age 75+ — 48.7 percent

I am sure that there are a few great Mature Generation and Baby Boomers age 65+ out there voicing their perspective, but they are a very, very small share of the Millennial-dominated crowd.

The number of "crucial/serious" cases totals 16,923 as of 12:01 am this morning.

As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, 373 additional individuals either directly or indirectly died from COVID-19 since yesterday and brings the new total to 110,852. This is one of the lowest daily counts of COVID-19 related deaths since March.

There are now 861,708 COVID-19 survivors in the U.S.; a number that increased by 3.7 percent from 24 hours ago.

The number of COVID-19 tests completed totals 21,291,677, as of 7:30 a.m. this morning.

A combination of print, internet and broadcast news is fixated on California, Alabama, and Florida as the new "hot" pockets of COVID-19 break outs.

Let's take California and look at the numbers. There have been a total of 131,710 cases of COVID-19 identified in California. Currently, there are 94,427 active cases. The state posted 2,763 new cases in the past 24 hours — which the news media cite as well — that is an increase of 2.1 percent active cases. The number of active cases in California represents 0.24 percent of the California population. Currently, the number of active cases in the U.S. represents 0.30 percent of the U.S. population.

Let's look at Alabama. There have been a total of 20,500 cases of COVID-19 identified in Alabama. Currently, there are 8,413 active cases. The state posted 457 new cases in the past 24 hours — again, a number cited by the media also — that is an increase of 5.4 percent active cases. The number of active cases in Alabama represents 0.17 percent of the Alabama population. Again, the number of active cases in the U.S. represents 0.30 percent of the U.S. population.

If someone gave me a free week's vacation to California, I would be at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in a heartbeat. If someone gave me tickets to watch ‘Bama play another SEC team in the Bryant-Denny Stadium, I would jump in my KIA wearing burgundy red and carrying a flask of Rebel Yell.

On a Monday morning, I guess mass media has to find a headline story in that hay-stack of numbers and stats.

!!Sunday, June 7, 2020
The three key COVID-19 numbers for today in the United States:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES — 51.2 percent, 52.1 percent yesterday
*FULLY RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES — 43.1 percent, 42.2 percent yesterday
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.7 percent, 5.7 percent yesterday

There are now 987,538 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. This is a slight decrease of 5,119 active cases, or 0.5 percent, from yesterday.

The number of "critical/serious" cases continues to remain nearly identical to the number posted each day over the past two weeks — 17,021.

As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, 706 additional individuals either directly or indirectly died from COVID-19 since yesterday — an increase of 0.6 percent brining the total number to 110,479 deaths.

There are now 830,695 COVID-19 survivors in the U.S. — a number that increased by 3.4 percent from 24 hours ago.

Below is a chart that posts the Three Key Numbers for today, plus the actual statistics behind each percentage for the U.S., plus a set of other countries that have been in the news.

::::

In Germany, the workforce is essentially all back to work. In Italy, much of the interaction of people is back to normal. Brazil now posts the second highest total cases globally and is positioned right behind the U.S. The percentage balance is nearly the same as the U.S. Canada is also not too different from the U.S.

Much of the media that I interact with largely operates out of New York or Washington. While CNN is officially based out of Atlanta, the New York studios generate most of the content. New York City is the global hot-bed of COVID-19. No other geographic acreage posts a similar out-break volume as has taken place in New York City. The city is also where most MSM is based.

While I am not an MD, I have spent the last 35 years of my career in tracking and forecasting trends and market changes. There are a lot of folks who openly voice to me that they have no idea what is going to happen next. In the work that I do, future forecasting is based on a wide variety of factors, but also based on similar and like environments and how those environments have evolved and changed.

As I shared with a couple of folks yesterday, I do believe that within the next 30-45 days the U.S. will post similar numbers as found in Italy and Germany. And this is with people going back to work, kids going back to school, and, yes, even with individuals marching in the streets to voice their viewpoints.

I also believe that one of the multiple dozens of vaccines that are now in stages two and three of development will combat COVID-19 — and individuals will be securing inoculation at some point in this calendar year.

The weekend edition of the Wall Street Journal has an article about the large leap in real estate sales that took place in May, an increase of 21 percent over the sales volume of May 2019. Sales will be up in June and July, too.

There is more activity taking place here in the U.S. than many believe and, to date, there has been no impact of that interaction on the COVID-10 numbers.

!!Saturday, June 6, 2020
The three key COVID-19 numbers for today in the U.S.

*ACTIVE CASES COVID-19 — 52.1 percent, yesterday 52.6 percent
*FULLY RECOVERED — 42.2 percent, yesterday 41.6 percent
*DEATHS DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.7 percent, yesterday 5.8 percent
 

There are now 992,657 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. This is an increase of 3,224 active cases or 0.3 percent from yesterday.

As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, 975 additional individuals either directly or indirectly died from COVID-19, an increase of 0.9 percent bringing the total number to 109,773 deaths.

The number of COVID-19 patients classified as in "critical-serious condition" totaled 17,121 at 12:01 a.m. this morning.

There are now 803,446 COVID-19 survivors in the U.S. — a number that increased by 2.3 percent from 24 hours ago. The ratio of active to full recovered is currently 1:0.8 — a number edging closer to a 1:1 ratio.

A number of readers raised questions yesterday as to whether survivors of COVID-19 truly would be COVID-19 free for the rest of their life — some doubting that any sources made any similar conclusions.

First, nearly every source that pops up in Google searches notes that survivors are very, very likely to be COVID-19 free because their body "becomes programmed to combat any re-entry of the COVID-19." Second, I encourage all readers to understand that COVID-19 is one of many virus strains that abound in which individuals become infected.  The way that the human body combats viruses is not novel. There are multiple studies of viruses and how the human body physically responds.  Sources used to put together these daily updates all stand by the viewpoint that individuals combatting COVID-19 are very, very unlikely to experience a relapse.
 

ATLANTA CORE COUNTIES & TWO OUTBREAK COUNTIES
Below is a chart of the five core Atlanta counties plus Dougherty and Hall Counties. Added to the weekly post is a column of currently active cases. This is based on the national 14 day recovery period and has been statistically calculated based on the tracked daily new cases over the past 8 weeks.

GREATER ATHENS-CLARKE COUNTY
Below is a chart of Athens-Clarke County and the five adjacent counties that comprise that "metro" area. Again, added to the weekly post is the column of currently active cases.

The economic numbers released yesterday indicate that the U.S. economy — and society — is bouncing back. What the U.S. went through over the past 90 days was not driven by market economics.

!!Friday, June 5, 2020
The three key pandemic numbers for today:

*ACTIVE COVID-19 CASES — 52.6 percent; yesterday, 55.5 percent
*FULLY RECOVERED COVID-19 CASES — 41.6 percent; yesterday, 38.7 percent
*DEATHS DIRECTLY/INDIRECTLY FROM COVID-19 — 5.8 percent; yesterday, 5.8 percent
 

As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, there are now 989,433 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. This is a decrease of 22,345 active cases, or 2.2 percent less than yesterday. The number of active cases is now below 1 million.

Also, as of 12:01 a.m. this morning, 1,031 additional individuals either directly or indirectly died from COVID-19, an increase of 0.9 percent, bringing the total number to 108,798 deaths.

The first COVID-19 death took place on February 8, 2020, in the U.S. Between February 8 and today, there have been 108,798 deaths directly or indirectly linked to COVID-19. During that same time span, there have been 205,784 individuals who have died directly from heart disease and another 190,356 individual who have died directly from cancer. Combined, those folks represent over 1 percent of the U.S. population.

The number of COVID-19 patients classified  in "critical-serious condition" totaled 17,083 at midnight, up slightly from 16,939 yesterday.

A total of 471,398 tests were administered in the U.S. yesterday, bringing the U.S. total of COVID-19 tests administered to date to 19,568,069, the next closest nation to in the administration of tests is Russia at 11,733,051.

There are now 782,252 COVID-19 survivors in the U.S., a number that increased 5.9 percent from yesterday, and, a number that will be increasing quickly as state definitions of "full recovery stats" time out and more survivors join the statistical ranks.

Below is a breakdown of the number of active cases as of 12:01 a.m. this morning, and one week ago, Friday, June 5. There are dramatic declines of active cases in states like Illinois and Massachusetts. Cases in New York, New Jersey Michigan and Pennsylvania posted significant declines one week ago. The number of active cases in Georgia, Florida and Ohio are based on the 14 day cycle used by Washington and the vast majority of States.

All 50 states have now begun pulling back "lock-down" restrictions. A large number of the population is leaving the house and getting back into mainstream society. Globally, there is not one single country that, in rolling back lock-down mandates, is experiencing a surge in new COVID-19 cases. Whether taking place back in March during college spring break; or back in April when the beaches re-opened; or back in May, over the course of Memorial Day weekend; or now, during marches and protests; there is not only no surge in new COVID-19 cases, the number of new cases per day has hovered around 20,000 over the course of the last four weeks.

My suggestion for this weekend is to turn off the stream of conventional digital and broadcast news media. Read your local alternative news weeklies and your local neighborhood newspapers instead. Replace CNN with TCM. Replace FOX News with FOX Sports. And replace MSNBC with NBC Sitcoms. Consider buying some fireworks and launching them to celebrate the number of active COVID-19 cases declining below 1 million.

Those active cases — 989,433 active cases — represent 3/10ths of one percent of our U.S. population of 330,342,293 folks. As the fireworks light up the sky, celebrate the 782,252 individuals who, as of today have battled COVID-19 and are alive. They represent 2/10ths of 1 percent of our U.S. population.

Georgia specific numbers are coming tomorrow.

!!Thursday, June 4, 2020
The set of the three numbers for today in the United States:

*ACTIVE CASES — 54.4 percent; yesterday 55.5 percent
*FULLY RECOVERED — 39.8 percent; yesterday 38.7 percent
*DIED DIRECTLY / INDIRECTLY — 5.8 percent; yesterday 5.8 percent
 

As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, there are now 1,011,778 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. That is a decrease of 9,201 cases or 0.9 percent from yesterday.

As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, 1,083 additional individuals either directly or indirectly died from COVID-19, an increase of 1.0 percent brining the total number to 107,767.

The number of critical-level COVID-19 cases totaled 16,939 at 12:01 a.m. this morning, and accounted for 1.7 percent of individuals currently active with COVID-19.

The number of COVID-19 executed tests surpassed 19 million yesterday in the U.S. As of 7:30 a.m., 19,096,671 individuals in the U.S. have been tested.

There are now 738,670 COVID-19 survivors in the U.S. The survivor number increased 4.5 percent within the last 24 hours.

Some of you may be aware of Dr. Neil Ferguson, the British epidemiologist who predicted earlier this year more than 2.2 million deaths that would result from COVID-19 and advocated that governments shelter residents in their homes.

His model was used by many governments, the U.S. included, as the justification for taking "stay-at-home" mandates. In the last week, Dr. Ferguson has issued a new report — using global data before, during and now as restrictions are being relaxed — that the original model he issued was incorrect.

Dr. Ferguson now says the number of deaths that have resulted from COVID-19 — 388,510 total globally as of 7:30 a.m. this morning — might not have changed, whether the "stay-at-home" mandates had been enacted or not.

!!Wednesday, June 3,2020
Moving forward, I am going to begin with a new number set for the U.S. which will showcase the three key percentage breakdowns of the total number of COVID-19 cases reported to date. The three percentages will reflect the percentage of active COVID-19 cases, the next percentage will reflect the number of full-case survivors, and the third percentage will reflect the number of individuals who directly or indirectly died related to COVID-19.

For today, the set of three numbers in the U.S. includes:

*Active cases: 55.5 percent
*Fully recovered cases: 38.7 percent
*Died directly or indirectly cases: 5.8 percent.
 

Each day moving forward, the set of three numbers — based on the information released as of 12:01 a.m. that morning — will be posted as well as those of the day before. On Friday of every week, I will include a table of the three percentages for each day of the week to showcase trends.

As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, there are now 1,020,979 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. That is a decrease of 3,810 cases, or 0.4 percent, from yesterday.

Also as of 12:01 a.m., there have been an additional 1,134 deaths either directly or indirectly related to COVID-19, an increase of 1.1 percent, bringing the total number of deaths to 106,684.

The number of "critical/serious" cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. increased by 165 patients from 16,949 yesterday to 17,114 as of 7:30 a.m. this morning.

Also, as of 7:30 a.m. this morning, a total of 18,603,174 COVID-19 tests have been conducted in the U.S.  That is the largest number of tests conducted by any one country. Russia comes in #2 with a total of tests conducted of just over 11 million.

Lastly, as reflected in the three percentages highlighted above, of the individuals testing positive with COVID-19, 38.7 percent, or 706,974 individuals, have combatted the coronavirus and are now active in their daily lives. This is an increase of 3.1 percent over the past 24 hours.

I do like to bet and I will place $100 on the table that this time next week, the number of individual currently testing positive with COVID-19 and classified as "ACTIVE" will be in a range of 75,000 cases of the number of past individuals now fully recovered. Right now, for every person currently active with COVID-19, there are 0.7 individuals fully recovered, a 1.0:0.7 ratio. Next week, I say we will be close to a 1.0:1.0 ratio.

!!Tuesday, June 2, 2020
As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, there are now 1,024,789 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. That is a decrease of 14,126 cases, or 1.4 percent, from yesterday. Again, this is based on a set of numbers issued by the CDC, Johns Hopkins, and World Numbers, and takes in new cases as well as state-designated full recoveries and deaths.
In the past 24 hours since the issuance of yesterday's numbers, there have been 730 additional deaths either direct or indirectly related to COVID-19 — an increase of 0.6 percent bringing the total number to 105,550 deaths in the United States.

An article in this morning's Wall Street Journal highlighted a report issued by the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services yesterday. The study identified that at least 25,923 of the COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. — as of May 29, 2020 — were tied directly to nursing home facilities.  In addition it identified that 449 individuals working at the nursing homes also died from illnesses related to COVID-19. Based on the number of deaths reported May 29, the nursing home facility deaths accounts for just over 25 percent, or one out of every four, COVID-19 deaths in the U.S.

As of 7:30 a.m., a total of 18,154,510 COVID-19 tests were completed in the U.S. — an increase of 481,943 from yesterday. Currently, the ratio of tests completed to positive identification is 22 to 1. That is, for every 22 tests administered, 1 new case is identified. Yesterday a radio campaign broke in Greater Atlanta advertising free COVID-19 tests now available at testing centers for anyone interested in taking a test — no pre-existing symptoms need to be present.  The promotion of the tests will be interesting to assess in terms of the impact on the ratio of tests and positive case identification.

The number of critical/serious COVID-19 cases has dropped slightly from yesterday and the average over the past week to 16,920 individuals.

Lastly, I issued state-wide numbers yesterday that showcased a more consistent assessment of full recoveries that brought states like Georgia and Florida into a better comparative perspective.

The chart below takes the Georgia numbers and applies them specifically to the Greater Athens-Clarke County area. A number of those receiving the updates have roots in Greater Athens. The chart lists out the confirmed cases and confirmed COVID-19-related deaths from Saturday, May 30, to today, June 2. The green column adds an active case set of numbers that provides a much more realistic perspective. Of the 1,054 COVID-19 cases tracked, 639 of those cases are currently active, 51 of the people have died directly or indirectly related to COVID-19, and 364 individuals are now fully-recovered using the 14 day qualifier used in the majority of the U.S. States.

!!Monday, June 1, 2020
Welcome to June … and an interesting set of numbers for Monday morning.

Below you will see some comparisons of where we were exactly four weeks ago, on May 4, and today. Over that course of time, nearly all the states have relaxed their stay-at-home ordinances and reopened businesses. As of today, sit-down dining will be reopening in more than two-dozen states if it wasn't already reopened.

As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, there are now 1,038,915 active cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. That is a decrease of 31,917 cases, or 3.0 percent, from yesterday as more patients clear through the individual state qualifiers.

As much as the total case numbers that the mainstream media channels promote generates misperceptions of actuals, the total number of individuals who are either currently active with COVID-19, have died from COVID-19, and who have fully recovered fully-recovered from COVID-19 today is 1,793,602. On May 4, it was 1,188,826. That is a difference of 604,776 individuals, or 50.8 percent more. However, the number of active cases of COVID-19 today is 1,038,915. On May 4, that number was 941,261, making for a difference of 97,654 individuals, or 10.4 percent more.

As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, there are now 104,820 individuals in the U.S. who have either directly or indirectly died related to COVID-19. That is an increase of 638 individuals, or 0.6 percent, from yesterday.
Again, 4 weeks ago the total number individuals that either directly or indirectly died related to COVID-19 was 68,598.  That is a difference of 36,222 or 52.8 percent more.  Back 4 weeks ago, the average number of deaths per day for the week leading into 5/4 was 2,200 deaths.  The average number of deaths per day for the past week from today is 980 deaths.

The number of COVID-19 individuals classified as in "critical/serious" condition on 5/4 was 28,540.  The number of COVID-19 individuals classified as "critical/serious" today is 17,075.  Interestingly, there is are 10.4 percent more active cases today than 4 weeks ago, but the number of individuals at a "critical/serious" level is about a third fewer.

The number of tests completed in the U.S. as of May 4th was 7,196,740.  This is a number of tests conducted since they initially were used more than 60 days prior.  The number of tests completed as of 7:30am this morning in the U.S. stands at 17,672,567… and increase of just under 10.5 million more … in a time space of 28 days!  The number of tests completed each day back on May 4th was about 120,000.  Today, the average number of tests completed each day averages 450,000.

The number of full individuals classified as fully recovered by each individual State on May 4th was 180,152.  As of midnight last night, the number of individuals designated by each individual State has now surpasses 600,000 and registered a daily increase of 8.8 percent from 24 hours ago — 649,867.  That is an increase of 360.7 percent.  Unfortunately, the mainstream media fails to report that number.

As more individuals fully recovered and the number of active cases declines, so does the incidence level of individuals positively active with COVID-19.  The chart below is current from the statistics released by CDC, Johns Hopkins and World Meter at midnight last night.  Please note that the number of fully recovered individuals in States that include Georgia, Florida, Indiana and Ohio are recorded differently on the local case release levels because of the additional 2 weeks recovery the individual states maintain before an individual is classified as "fully recovered."  These numbers are generated from a common national qualifier of 2 weeks instead.

The percentage of Active Case is the actual percentage.  For example in Georgia, the 28,538 active cases accounts for 0.266 percent of our statewide population of 10,736,200 residents.  The reverse claim can also be made… 99.7 percent of the residents of Georgia are not currently active with COVID-19.

Friends,

We wanted to share our experiences with fellow business owners on how the new Congressional legislation is working. We're queued up with our SBA lender and are in the process of applying for the emergency loan package. Here's what we understand so far (we'll keep this updated as we progress):

If you own or are involved with a small business, the SBA "Cares Act" loan program basically is a three step process:  (1) take your avg monthly payroll + 1099 payments to individuals over the past 12 months; (2) take that monthly payroll and multiply by 2.5 times. This is what the SBA will lend you. The SBA then forgives payments you make over the first 8 weeks of the loan to payroll (including 1099), rent and utilities. So if you borrow the money and then re-hire your employees, every dollar spent is forgiven debt. The SBA has waived the personal guarantees normally required.

*Here’s the info on the SBA and the Emergency Loans
*Here’s some Q&A/tips on the program from our Florida based law firm.
**A Fact Sheet on the SBA Loans
**A Sample Application on the SBA Loans
**The SBA Regulations provided to the Banks
**The SBA Press Release we received at CL
*Here's a Q&A/tips from the Atlanta-based Troutman Sanders' parent firm with advice to bankers on how to handle the loans. This is good to see what bankers are reading as they are gearing up to lend.

In addition, there are two more options to consider:

*For businesses with general liability insurance there may be a case for business interruption insurance.
*The State of Georgia is officially a disaster zone and there are emergency funds available to businesses including a $10,000 quick payment mechanism. This disaster loan is a standard SBA emergency loan with repayment terms, etc. but can be rolled up into the larger loan without a personal guarantee.
 

2020.04.02 Update: We received the preliminary loan application last night and submitted it to the bank. We're using a community bank in Florida where we have had a relationship for the past several years who specializes in SBA loans. It is a 2 page application. Hard part is calculating 12 month average payroll but once you have this, the rest is checking off that you aren't a criminal. Bank says it will get back to us and expects to process it on Friday if application is complete. 

2020.04.02 Update: The Treasury issued a new set of regulations that is throwing all the banks off a bit. Interest rate changed slightly and they changed the way companies could calculate the overall amount they can borrow to just include formal payroll. This is going to create a problem for businesses that have 1099 employees as this sets up a process for either unemployment or a long queue for individuals to have to go thru a swamped SBA process. If I were a freelancer or being paid by 1099 income, I'd recommend going to the unemployment process and see if the State of GA can start to handle this. Paying unemployment to 1099 workers isn't something the State is used to so expect some confusion to set in. 

2020.04.03 Update: Our banker emailed at 11:53pm (midnight) with a list of items that might be needed. also gave me his cell number, email, etc. and encouraged me to call with any questions over the weekend. Seems like the Treasury change last night threw everyone off. Hearsay from friends on Wall Street and Private Equity - there is great fear that the US Treasury isn't staffed to handle the promises made by the Congress. This might turn out to be a mirror of the promised "Covid 19 tests". Hope not.  

2020.04.04 Update: Our bank got swamped with so many loans that they had to shut down the acceptance of new applications until the first batch of loans gets cleared. 

2020.04.06 Update: I sent an email submitting all the additional information - basically was asking for payroll information for calendar year 2019 and then YTD thru March 1, 2020. Seems like the Treasury is moving timing around for purposes of computing the overall loan amount. They also wanted some W2 information. It was pretty easy to provide as we just did this for year end accounting. On the email, i asked for information on where we are in the queue and got a call back mid-morning. The bank is running two 12 hour shifts and they hand the files off and go home and sleep and then come back for another shift. We seemed to have give all the info needed so we were moving along. The bank had yet to get any loans thru the SBA but they were optimistic that things were going to be processed. One key item - we seemed to have a "number" from the SBA so this seemed to suggest we have a file that just needs populating. 

2020.04.09 Update: We're expecting a call today or Friday with some sense of what the queue looks like ... more to come.  

2020.04.11 Update: We got an email from our banker saying they are working through our application and to should have an undate in the next day or two. 

::::

2020.04.13 Update: We received an automated email saying "Congratulations!" but more documentation was needed and there will be another email request for info in the next 24-48 hours. The documentation is similar to what we've submitted but there is a more detailed request for bank statements, the last tax return and where you want the funds to be sent. Crossing our fingers that we're close. 

Update: 2020.04.16 – We are still awaiting the 24-48 hour promised update from our bank. We’re at 72 hours but thinking these guys are swamped. When we saw the news that the program was going to run out of money, we sent a note to the bank asking if we are still good and got an immediate reply that they had the funds secured. A few friends of friends have gotten funded so we’ll see. Congress is working on refreshing the funds but the talks have been slowed this week over whether or not to give additional money to hospitals/municipalities in addition to reloading the SBA money. The politics are going to get gnarly as connected businesses get money and true small businesses and 1099 contractors without easy access to advice are going to get screwed. Access to high quality information and the confidence to access/navigate the fluid situation is going to be the life or death of Atlanta’s small business community.

::::
Update: 2020.04.16 – The Wall Street Journal is reporting that SBA has shut the doors on the small business program. One note of caution, there is a game of chicken going on between the Republicans and Democrats on the next bill so keep in mind that the SBA is an arm of the Trump Administration and has an incentive to play up the closing of the funds batch of money. Not pretty but there is no way there aren't more funds coming in this program so small businesses need to find a bank and queue up for the next round. Most banks have a "waiting list". 

Update 2020.04.17 - We got the email from the bank asking for the final round of documents. Pretty straightforward request for last tax return, 3 months of bank statements, a borrowing resolution form to sign, driver's license photo, payroll summary and a quick worksheet for how you intend to use the funds. The worksheet spells out that 75% of the money must go to payroll. There is a reference in the request for information that says "funding date, targeted at 10 days from SBA Authorization." We're guess that the autorization was made with the Congratulations email from April 11th. If so, maybe next Tuesday or Wednesday? 

Update 2020.04.24 - We got a call from the bank that they hit a glitch with their internal software trying to manage the volume of loans and thought they would be able to clear all the loans over the weekend. 

Update 2020.04.30 - We got a final request from the bank to submit the 2019 tax return related to the business. We had provided all the information that would have been on that form but seemed that the SBA wants to see this on the proper IRS form. An hour after submitting this, we got an email saying the loan had been completed. Everything in the fine print was what we had expected - no new surprises thankfully. Funding is supposed to be done within 2 business days. 

Update 2020.05.01 - We received our cash. It was deposited directly into our account. Now the work turns to the rules for how to use the money so it gets written off. Hope this log is helpful to others going thru this process.

Friends,

We wanted to share our experiences with fellow business owners on how the new Congressional legislation is working. We're queued up with our SBA lender and are in the process of applying for the emergency loan package. Here's what we understand so far (we'll keep this updated as we progress):

If you own or are involved with a small business, the SBA "Cares Act" loan program basically is a three step process:  (1) take your avg monthly payroll + 1099 payments to individuals over the past 12 months; (2) take that monthly payroll and multiply by 2.5 times. This is what the SBA will lend you. The SBA then forgives payments you make over the first 8 weeks of the loan to payroll (including 1099), rent and utilities. So if you borrow the money and then re-hire your employees, every dollar spent is forgiven debt. The SBA has waived the personal guarantees normally required.

*Here’s the info on the SBA and the Emergency Loans
*Here’s some Q&A/tips on the program from our Florida based law firm.
**A Fact Sheet on the SBA Loans
**A Sample Application on the SBA Loans
**The SBA Regulations provided to the Banks
**The SBA Press Release we received at CL
*Here's a Q&A/tips from the Atlanta-based Troutman Sanders' parent firm with advice to bankers on how to handle the loans. This is good to see what bankers are reading as they are gearing up to lend.

In addition, there are two more options to consider:

*For businesses with general liability insurance there may be a case for business interruption insurance.
*The State of Georgia is officially a disaster zone and there are emergency funds available to businesses including a $10,000 quick payment mechanism. This disaster loan is a standard SBA emergency loan with repayment terms, etc. but can be rolled up into the larger loan without a personal guarantee.
 

2020.04.02 Update: We received the preliminary loan application last night and submitted it to the bank. We're using a community bank in Florida where we have had a relationship for the past several years who specializes in SBA loans. It is a 2 page application. Hard part is calculating 12 month average payroll but once you have this, the rest is checking off that you aren't a criminal. Bank says it will get back to us and expects to process it on Friday if application is complete. 

2020.04.02 Update: The Treasury issued a new set of regulations that is throwing all the banks off a bit. Interest rate changed slightly and they changed the way companies could calculate the overall amount they can borrow to just include formal payroll. This is going to create a problem for businesses that have 1099 employees as this sets up a process for either unemployment or a long queue for individuals to have to go thru a swamped SBA process. If I were a freelancer or being paid by 1099 income, I'd recommend going to the unemployment process and see if the State of GA can start to handle this. Paying unemployment to 1099 workers isn't something the State is used to so expect some confusion to set in. 

2020.04.03 Update: Our banker emailed at 11:53pm (midnight) with a list of items that might be needed. also gave me his cell number, email, etc. and encouraged me to call with any questions over the weekend. Seems like the Treasury change last night threw everyone off. Hearsay from friends on Wall Street and Private Equity - there is great fear that the US Treasury isn't staffed to handle the promises made by the Congress. This might turn out to be a mirror of the promised "Covid 19 tests". Hope not.  

2020.04.04 Update: Our bank got swamped with so many loans that they had to shut down the acceptance of new applications until the first batch of loans gets cleared. 

2020.04.06 Update: I sent an email submitting all the additional information - basically was asking for payroll information for calendar year 2019 and then YTD thru March 1, 2020. Seems like the Treasury is moving timing around for purposes of computing the overall loan amount. They also wanted some W2 information. It was pretty easy to provide as we just did this for year end accounting. On the email, i asked for information on where we are in the queue and got a call back mid-morning. The bank is running two 12 hour shifts and they hand the files off and go home and sleep and then come back for another shift. We seemed to have give all the info needed so we were moving along. The bank had yet to get any loans thru the SBA but they were optimistic that things were going to be processed. One key item - we seemed to have a "number" from the SBA so this seemed to suggest we have a file that just needs populating. 

2020.04.09 Update: We're expecting a call today or Friday with some sense of what the queue looks like ... more to come.  

2020.04.11 Update: We got an email from our banker saying they are working through our application and to should have an undate in the next day or two. 

::::

2020.04.13 Update: We received an automated email saying "Congratulations!" but more documentation was needed and there will be another email request for info in the next 24-48 hours. The documentation is similar to what we've submitted but there is a more detailed request for bank statements, the last tax return and where you want the funds to be sent. Crossing our fingers that we're close. 

Update: 2020.04.16 – We are still awaiting the 24-48 hour promised update from our bank. We’re at 72 hours but thinking these guys are swamped. When we saw the news that the program was going to run out of money, we sent a note to the bank asking if we are still good and got an immediate reply that they had the funds secured. A few friends of friends have gotten funded so we’ll see. Congress is working on refreshing the funds but the talks have been slowed this week over whether or not to give additional money to hospitals/municipalities in addition to reloading the SBA money. The politics are going to get gnarly as connected businesses get money and true small businesses and 1099 contractors without easy access to advice are going to get screwed. Access to high quality information and the confidence to access/navigate the fluid situation is going to be the life or death of Atlanta’s small business community.

::::
Update: 2020.04.16 – The Wall Street Journal is reporting that SBA has shut the doors on the small business program. One note of caution, there is a game of chicken going on between the Republicans and Democrats on the next bill so keep in mind that the SBA is an arm of the Trump Administration and has an incentive to play up the closing of the funds batch of money. Not pretty but there is no way there aren't more funds coming in this program so small businesses need to find a bank and queue up for the next round. Most banks have a "waiting list". 

Update 2020.04.17 - We got the email from the bank asking for the final round of documents. Pretty straightforward request for last tax return, 3 months of bank statements, a borrowing resolution form to sign, driver's license photo, payroll summary and a quick worksheet for how you intend to use the funds. The worksheet spells out that 75% of the money must go to payroll. There is a reference in the request for information that says "funding date, targeted at 10 days from SBA Authorization." We're guess that the autorization was made with the Congratulations email from April 11th. If so, maybe next Tuesday or Wednesday? 

Update 2020.04.24 - We got a call from the bank that they hit a glitch with their internal software trying to manage the volume of loans and thought they would be able to clear all the loans over the weekend. 

Update 2020.04.30 - We got a final request from the bank to submit the 2019 tax return related to the business. We had provided all the information that would have been on that form but seemed that the SBA wants to see this on the proper IRS form. An hour after submitting this, we got an email saying the loan had been completed. Everything in the fine print was what we had expected - no new surprises thankfully. Funding is supposed to be done within 2 business days. 

Update 2020.05.01 - We received our cash. It was deposited directly into our account. Now the work turns to the rules for how to use the money so it gets written off. Hope this log is helpful to others going thru this process.

  string(3060) "Yesterday afternoon (4/20), Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp announced that he is ready for the state to get back to work, allowing certain businesses to reopen as early as Friday, April 24. The date is not quite Easter weekend, but it’s not too far after. Kemp has said that non-essential businesses such as bowling alleys, tattoo shops, nail salons, barber shops, and gyms and work-out places, and massage parlors may be open for business. Restaurants will be allowed to re-open Monday, April 27.

The question is, will you go? With Georgia, as of five days ago, ranked 46 nationally and behind all neighboring states in COVID-19 testing, is it safe to go out? With Georgia ranked fifth, at 5.4%, as of this morning among the states with the highest number of coronavirus deaths in the last 24 hours, is it safe to go out?

Georgians are being told by their governor that it is. Georgians are being told by a man who, just over two weeks ago, admitted he didn’t know until that day that asymptomatic carriers of COVID-19 could spread the disease, that it is safe to go out. Sure, he’s said that we should wear face masks, practice social distancing, wash our hands and not touch our face, but anyone who has been out over the last four weeks knows that, while you may do your part, others do not. And let’s look at the businesses that he is allowing to reopen this week, not exactly places where participants are able to maintain a distance of six feet apart.

With the governor’s decision, even those who do choose to continue self-quarantine, self-isolate, whatever you may call what you’ve been practicing for the last four to five weeks to keep yourself healthy — and alive — when you do have to go out for essentials — food, medications, beer and wine — you will now have a greater chance of co-mingling with someone who couldn’t wait a little longer to get a haircut, a new tattoo, or workout with other sweaty, heavy-breathing people who think such a regimen is the only way to stay “fit.”

And what if you are an employee at one of the businesses the governor has allowed to re-open, yet you don’t feel its safe to go back to work? Do you risk being fired? Do you hope you have an understanding boss? Or, do you believe the man who pointed a shotgun as a warning at a kid wanting to date his daughter in a campaign ad that it’s safe to do so?

No one can answer the question for you. You have to decide for yourself. The governor is following guidelines set forth by “the White House,” and, as he noted — though he didn’t identify the “we” he referred to — “we appreciate the leadership and share in the president’s desire to re-open the economy and get Americans back to work.” For those of us at Creative Loafing, we look to Dr. Anthony Fauci, who is guided by science and statistics, before deciding whether it’s time to “re-open the economy,” to engage in such non-essential activity as the governor has allowed to re-open, and, to decide what is best for us, our families and our friends."
