More than 211,762 new cases and 2,858 deaths were confirmed as of Thursday evening by a Reuters tally. The stay-at-home restrictions will begin with 48 hours’ notice and remain in place for at least three weeks once they are ordered. The public health crisis has taken on more dire dimensions following a week of Thanksgiving holiday celebrations in which millions of Americans disregarded warnings against traveling and large gatherings. Health experts predict that an even greater surge could kill about 3,000 people a day over the next two months. And if there’s repercussions along down the line I am going to say that it’s worth taking that risk.”

Pace of U.S. Recovery Picked Up This Fall, Fed’s Beige Book Says
  + stars: | 2020-12-02 | by ( Paul Kiernan | ) www.wsj.com sentiment -1.00   time to read: +1 min
WASHINGTON—The U.S. economy’s recovery picked up to a “modest or moderate” pace this fall, while growth began to slow in November in parts of the Midwest and Northeast as coronavirus cases proliferated, a Federal Reserve report said Wednesday. The Fed’s periodic compilation of anecdotes from business contacts, known as the Beige Book, said the expansion continued in most of the central bank’s 12 districts across the country. But four regional Fed branches reported “little or no growth,” and four noted that activity began to slow in early November. “Many contacts cited concerns over the recent pandemic wave, mandated restrictions (recent and prospective), and the looming expiration dates for unemployment benefits and for moratoriums on evictions and foreclosures.”The Fed’s previous Beige Book report characterized economic growth in the early fall as at a “slight to modest” pace. Banks reported deterioration in loan portfolios—particularly commercial lending to retail, hospitality and leisure businesses—and expectations of an uptick in delinquencies became more widespread, the Beige Book added.

The reports support expectations of a sharp slowdown in economic growth in the fourth quarter because of the raging coronavirus pandemic and depleted fiscal stimulus. Economists polled by Reuters had forecast pending home contracts, which become sales after a month or two, would rebound 1.0% in October. The 30-year fixed mortgage rate is around an average 2.72%, according to data from mortgage finance agency Freddie Mac. The survey’s new orders measure dropped for the first time since May, when the recovery from the pandemic started. According to a Reuters survey of economists, the ISM national manufacturing index likely fell to a reading of 58.0 from 59.3 in October.

U.S. pending home sales unexpectedly fall in October

The National Association of Realtors said on Monday its Pending Home Sales Index, based on contracts signed last month, decreased 1.1% to 128.9. Economists polled by Reuters had forecast pending home contracts, which become sales after a month or two, would rebound 1.0% in October. Compared to a year ago, pending homes sales jumped 20.2% in October. The monthly decline in contracts suggests a moderation in sales of existing home sales after they accelerated in October to their highest level since November 2005. In October, pending home sales edged up 0.1% in the South.

“Once you go over the case cliff, where you have so many cases that you overwhelm the system, basically at that point when you fall off that case cliff, you’re going to see mortality rates go up substantially,” he said. The country reached a peak seven-day average of 176,000 reported cases on Wednesday, and there is reason to fear the worst is still coming. After rising cases has come the new surge of deaths. In the Upper Midwest, where reports of new cases have started to level off, deaths are still mounting. Nearly 40 percent of all coronavirus deaths in Wisconsin have been reported since the start of November.

Coronavirus case numbers have spiked predictably after the social gatherings around Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day. Labor Day led to warnings against Halloween; Halloween celebrations led to surges that have compromised the safety of traditional Thanksgiving get-togethers. The behavior that keeps everyone safe — staying home, wearing masks, keeping gatherings small and brief — requires people to be invested in those who aren't even there and who are usually unknown to them. Day after day after day, he takes cholesterol-lowering medications to stave off an event with much less immediate danger than the coronavirus. But complying with Covid-19 restrictions doesn't earn you a break or a "cheat" day.

What started as a Midwestern surge has grown into coast-to-coast disaster. Over the last two months, rural counties and midsize cities in the Great Plains and Upper Midwest have been the main drivers of the dizzying growth in coronavirus cases in the United States. “Our people are tired,” said Maggie Hansen, the chief nursing executive at Memorial Healthcare System in South Florida. More than 1.2 million cases have been identified in the United States in the last week alone, and the country is on pace to reach 13 million known cases in the coming days. Deaths are also rising fast, with more than 2,200 announced nationwide on Tuesday, the most on a single day since early May.

Nearly a third of all nursing homes said they had to wait three to seven days to receive Covid-19 test results. Do you have a tip to share about how the coronavirus is affecting nursing homes?

A healthcare worker adjusts an oxygen tank for a patient with the coronavirus disease at a hospital in Lakin, Kansas, November 19, 2020. As cases spike in many conservative states and counties, medical workers say they often face a challenge just in convincing patients and local leaders that the disease should be taken seriously and isn't a Democrat-perpetuated hoax. President Donald Trump often has held shoulder-to-shoulder rallies in the Midwest and elsewhere and treated masks as a matter of personal choice. Although Trump was not re-elected, about two months remain in his tenure, with little sign of change in his coronavirus strategy, even as the crisis grows. The White House press office did not respond to a request for comment.

A healthcare worker takes the temperature of COVID-19 patient Troy Burrows as healthcare personnel treat people with the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) at a hospital in Lakin, Kansas, U.S., November 19, 2020. Miller, Kearny’s chief medical officer - who doubles as the county health officer - called around to larger hospitals in search of an ICU bed. COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations are spiking nationally. Shortages of staff, rather than beds, are the biggest single problem in many hospitals, the health officials said. When he died, “the family did not want to admit this patient had died of COVID, because they didn’t believe COVID kills people,” she said.

Travel restrictions, a recession and socially distant Thanksgiving celebrations won't put a dent in the number of turkeys on store shelves this holiday. U.S. growers raised 222 million turkeys this year, according to the Agriculture Department, just 3 percent fewer than were raised in 2019. And market analysts are expecting an adequate supply this Thanksgiving as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's recommendation to Americans not to travel this season leads to more — but smaller — meals. When asked about its supply of turkeys, Walmart referred NBC News to an online post, in which it said that with more customers planning for smaller groups, it anticipates a higher preference for smaller turkeys or turkey by the pound. Jordan said any excess turkeys will likely go into cold storage as retailers try to entice customers with steeper discounts around Christmas and Easter.
