Gavin Newsom said Monday, warning of a potential third shutdown of businesses and more delays in school reopenings “if we're not vigilant.” Coronavirus-related hospitalizations have fallen more than 20% in the past two weeks and just 2.8% of people tested each day in California were positive for the disease, the lowest rate since the pandemic began.

    CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — The University of Wyoming plans to restart in-person classes Tuesday after switching to online learning when a cluster of coronavirus cases emerged. President Ed Seidel temporarily halted in-person instruction on Sept. 2 after the university confirmed seven cases of the coronavirus within a 24-hour period. The school had previously said it would postpone classes on campus if more than five cases were reported in a day. School officials say the number of positive tests has been encouraging. They haven't confirmed a new case among students since Tuesday, the Casper Star-Tribune reported Friday. Seidel said in a statement that the campus would reopen next Tuesday “barring a significant increase in cases." Random sample testing will continue through...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — Indiana reported its highest number of daily COVID-19 cases since the start of the outbreak, but that total does include nearly 300 cases that were backlogged and just added on Friday. The 1,282 cases, tops the high mark of 1,279 set in early August. However, that number includes 279 cases from a testing facility that was just added to the electronic reporting system. Some of those tests were done as far back as Aug. 28.  Before the Labor Day weekend, a holiday time when reported cases typically drop, the state was averaging about 930 cases a day. So, Friday’s actual single day number is slightly above the average. Officials have expressed concern about an increase in cases...
    New research suggests that the US already had 6.4 million cases of coronavirus by mid-April - more than were officially reported as of Thursday. Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, calculated that the real number of infections by April 18 was nine-times higher than the 712,000 reported by the CDC, which they believe was a massive undercount due to insufficient or inaccurate testing.  According to Johns Hopkins University's tally, 6.38 million US cases were confirmed by September 10.   Testing in the US has ramped up considerably - but if as many people might have had coronavirus by spring as are confirmed now, the real case number remains a mystery, and is likely much higher.  It is a grim perspective...
    PROVO, Utah (AP) — The number of self-reported coronavirus cases on Brigham Young University's campus has almost doubled to 146, officials said. That figure from Monday is up from 80 cases last week. 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. The school said in a statement that many of the self-reported cases have stemmed from gatherings both on-campus and off-campus. It implores students to be compliant with the university's regulations in order to prevent the spread of the virus. BYU started partial in-person instruction on Aug. 31, with students also taking some classes remotely. The school says...

    LJUBLJANA (Reuters) - Slovenia, which was the first European state to declare an end to the coronavirus pandemic in May, on Wednesday reported its the highest daily count of new infections since registering its first case in March. The government on Wednesday reported 79 new coronavirus cases, referring to Tuesday testing, versus 43 a day before, taking the total number of confirmed cases to 3,312. Analysts said the surge could be due to the government conducting more coronavirus tests on Tuesday than before, at 2,560 compared to 1,581 on Monday. They said the start of the school year on September 1 also contributed to the spread of the virus. So far Slovenia, which has 2 million citizens, recorded a total...
    AUSTIN, Texas – Texas reported 2,057 new cases of the coronavirus on Monday, and 20 additional deaths.

The number of hospitalizations has been decreasing since peaking in July at 10,893, and the number of newly reported cases has also been decreasing since then. For most people, the coronavirus...

    Coronavirus tests could be picking up dead virus cells from weeks' old infections, study finds, meaning 'false positives' could lead to an exaggeration of the current scale of the pandemic.   Despite coronavirus only being infectious for around a week, the tests used to diagnose the disease could still show a positive reading for weeks after the end of a patient's illness. Experts don't know how to produce a reliable test without potentially missing cases but Professor Carl Heneghan, one of the study's author's, suggested a cut off point so low amounts of virus do not give a positive result. He told the BBC coronavirus 'infectivity appears to decline after about a week' and added false positives could be the reason case numbers...

The Illinois Department of Public Health logged 5,368 new confirmed cases of coronavirus infections throughout the state Friday, officials said. Twenty-nine more people also died from the disease in the past day, according to state data. State officials said the whopping number of infections is partly due to a backlog in processing test results, and the case positivity rate actually decreased slightly to 4.1 percent. “Two system upgrades were put in place and the systems now have significantly faster processing capacity,” IDPH said in a statement. “Although the slowdown did delay the...

    By Nicolás Misculin BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - Argentina confirmed a record 8,713 new cases of coronavirus on Monday and 381 resulting deaths in just 24 hours, as the Latin American nation battles a surge of contagions.

    The number of coronavirus cases reported Sunday, roughly 34,500, was the lowest since late June, making it the eighth straight day that new cases fell below 50,000.

Georgia, Texas, and Tennessee, all also previously hot spots, have similarly seen a downward trend. Lower daily case counts, a positive sign that...
