    The US recorded fewer than 50,000 new coronavirus infections for the third day in a row — marking the longest streak below that threshold in more than a month, new data shows. The case count Tuesday was 46,800, following 49,500 Monday and 47,000 cases on Sunday, according to a running tally from Johns Hopkins University.

Though the US has seen more than 5 million cases, the number of new cases has fallen over the past three weeks. The decline has been attributed to fewer new cases in hotspots such as Arizona, Florida, California and Tennessee. Coronavirus-related...

    An eleven-year-old girl has died from organ failure in Spain after suffering from a rare immune complication linked to the coronavirus, according to local media.

    First it was Seattle. Then New York City. Then the novel coronavirus hit Arizona, Texas, and Florida with a vengeance, infecting hundreds of thousands of people and leading to backlogs of bodies in morgues that are still growing today. The big question, as the weather begins to turn cold, flu season approaches, and schools reopen across the nation, is a simple one: Which city is next? The modelers at PolicyLab, the think tank at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) whose projections are often used by the White House Coronavirus Task Force, think they have an answer: Baltimore, Chicago, and Boston. The reasons range from density to climate to behavior to demographic factors. But, cumulatively, they have created a dangerous...

    Gov. Ron DeSantis was hailed as conservative hero for early "reopenings"—then the state's pandemic numbers began to explode. The state of Florida continues to act as a test case for the Republican notion of ignoring a worldwide pandemic into submission. Under the control of Donald Trump devotee and "mayor from Jaws" Gov. Ron DeSantis, the state has seen steadily rising COVID-19 cases after a period of largely ignoring social distancing recommendations urged by infectious disease experts. It took some time for the new cases to translate into a rise in deaths; that, too, has been recently changing. Another recent change: the state's numbers of COVID-19 cases in children are now soaring, as they have throughout the nation. Nearly 100,000 new COVID-19...

"When we looked in the setting of Covid disease, we found that people who had prior vaccinations with a variety of vaccines -- for pneumococcus, influenza, hepatitis and others -- appeared to have a lower risk of getting Covid disease," Dr. Andrew Badley, an infectious disease specialist at Mayo Clinic told CNN's Anderson Cooper Monday night.
