ET Covid-19 Live Updates: Officials Fear Thanksgiving Travelers Could Drive Virus Surge Federal officials have urged Americans returning from Thanksgiving travel to cut down on unnecessary activity, and cautioned that they should assume they are carrying the virus. “Assume that you were exposed”: Officials warn of fallout from Thanksgiving travel. Advocacy groups estimate that there were roughly 50,000 delivery workers before the pandemic — a number they say has grown exponentially. The students, the first group of international students allowed in since March, arrived at Darwin International Airport in the Northern Territory from Singapore. According to research from Victoria University, the loss of international students is also affecting the makeup of Australia’s cities.

Thanksgiving could not be better designed to be a coronavirus superspreading event. Already, COVID-19 cases, deaths, and hospitalizations are skyrocketing around the US, approaching a new peak. As of Thursday, at least 12.8 million Americans have tested positive for coronavirus, according to Johns Hopkins University. "The national ensemble predicts that a total of 294,000 to 321,000 COVID-19 deaths will be reported by this date," the CDC said. Daily new COVID-19 deaths in the US.

The recommended 14-day quarantine period for Americans exposed to COVID-19 could soon be shortened by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Walke said people would need to take a COVID-19 test before they came out of quarantine. Currently, the CDC recommends that people quarantine for 14 days after coming into contact with someone that has the coronavirus. "Obviously we don't want people to be quarantined 14 days unnecessarily," Redfield said. Belgium shortened its quarantine period to seven days on October 1, but then increased it to 10 days on October 19 after a surge in cases.

Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), speaks during a news conference at the CDC Roybal Campus in Atlanta, Georgia, U.S., on Wednesday, Oct. 21, 2020. Current CDC guidelines recommend that anyone exposed to a person with the coronavirus to quarantine at home for 14 days, even if they test negative for the virus. However, CDC Director Robert Redfield said in late October that those guidelines were made when diagnostic testing wasn't as readily available as it is today. At the time, Redfield said the agency was trying to determine whether a quarantine period could be shortened to as little as seven days with a negative Covid-19 test. "We've been talking to CDC and others about how do we incorporate testing into a way out of quarantine," he told CNBC's Meg Tirrell.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention may soon shorten the length of time it recommends that a person self-quarantine after potential exposure to the coronavirus, hoping that such a step will encourage more people to comply, a top agency official said. CDC officials are finalizing recommendations for a new quarantine period that would likely be between seven and 10 days and include a test to ensure a person is negative for Covid-19, said Henry Walke, the agency’s incident manager for Covid-19 response.

David Paul Morris | Bloomberg | Getty ImagesWith Covid-19 deaths rising rapidly and daily new cases and hospitalizations both reaching all-time highs, epidemiologists and public health officials are warning that Thanksgiving will exacerbate an already severe nationwide outbreak. By all indications, Americans are traveling to see family for the holiday, despite pleas from public health officials not to do so. Dr. Henry Walke, the CDC's Covid-19 incident manager, said the agency is "alarmed" by the "exponential increase in cases and hospitalizations and deaths" caused by Covid-19. Thanksgiving could be an "accelerator event" for the outbreak, he said. If hospitals continue to face staff constraints, the number of preventable Covid-19 deaths will rise, Ranney said.

(Reuters) - The number of COVID-19 cases in the United States was on track to surpass 12 million on Saturday, just days ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday that health experts have warned could fuel the surging spread of infection around the country. Reuters data shows the pace of new infections in the United States has quickened, with nearly one million more cases recorded in just the last 6 days since the country recorded 11 million. This compares with the 8 days it took to get from 10 million cases to 11 million cases, and the 10 days it took to get from 9 to 10 million. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control issued a “strong recommendation” to Americans this week to refrain from traveling over Thanksgiving.

REUTERS/Tami Chappell(Reuters) - The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Thursday recommended Americans do not travel during next week’s Thanksgiving holiday to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus as cases of COVID-19 spike around the United States. The travel advice is a “strong recommendation,” not a requirement, CDC official Henry Walke said on a call with reporters. The federal agency said it was making the recommendation after many states across the country experienced a surge in coronavirus cases in recent weeks. The AAA travel agency has said it anticipates at least a 10 percent drop in the number of travelers this Thanksgiving, the largest single-year drop since 2008. Based on its October models, it forecasts 50 million Americans will travel for the holiday, compared with 55 million in 2019.
