    MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia has recorded 20.5% more deaths since the COVID-19 pandemic began in the country in April, data from the Rosstat state statistics service, tallied by Reuters, showed on Monday. The total figure, at 241,193 more deaths in April-November 2020 than during the same period the previous year, is significantly higher than the preliminary pandemic death toll of 55,265 so far, reported on a cumulative daily basis by the government's coronavirus crisis centre. This figure includes deaths recorded in December. Though death tolls fluctuate year-to-year, tallies of what are referred to as excess deaths can illustrate the impact of the pandemic by including cases where the novel coronavirus was not a confirmed cause of death, as well as deaths from other causes that could be linked to the fact that national medical systems are over-stretched. Rosstat data, tallied by Reuters, showed that less than half the total number...
    CARSON CITY, N.V. (AP) — Nevada health officials reported an increase of 1,856 confirmed COVID-19 cases Sunday, bringing the total number of known cases to 217,509 since the pandemic began. Nine additional deaths were reported Sunday, bringing the total to 2,952. The state's testing positivity rate remains high, with around 1 in 5 people taking a COVID-19 test getting a positive result. The number of infections is thought to be far higher because many people have not been tested, and studies suggest people can be infected with the virus without feeling sick. For most people, the new coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks. For some — especially older adults and people with existing health problems — it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia, and death. Copyright 2020 The Associated Press.

    The United States continues to set records as new COVID-19 are mounting over the fall, though the numbers reported may not truly represent the actual number of infections, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. As the country tops 15.5 million COVID-19 cases, the most in the world, the CDC is estimating that the actual number could be between two and seven times between that, based on surveys and models. Between Feb. 27 and Sept. 30, there were nearly 7 million laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 infections, but when adjusted for potential false-negative test results, incomplete reporting of cases and asymptomatic or mildly ill individuals who never got tested, they said there may have actually been approximately 53 million infections. That number represents 13 percent of total infections according to researchers in a paper published in the journal of Clinical Infectious Diseases late last month. “The total estimated number of infections...
    Our college football best bets for Week 15 include the Army-Navy game, a big ACC over/under and much more action and picks to win with this week. 1. Navy vs. Army – Under 37.5 Frankly, this was a number that should’ve been gotten earlier if you wanted it. The total for the Army-Navy game opened in the 40s, which is a smash spot for the betting market. Because when service academies play, the under is always the best bet. In the last 46 meetings between service academies, unders have hit 36 times and pushed once. Now, 37.5 is a low, low number. But even then, the Army-Navy game would’ve hit the under on that total in four of the last eight years. With the Midshipmen’s challenged offense, I’m still willing to be the under here.

It was a total that galvanized the nation, altered the shape of government, and ultimately generated two wars in which over 8,500 more Americans have fallen. But it’s also a total smaller than the numbers of American deaths attributed to COVID-19 on Wednesday alone.
