Update (1645ET): Dr. Anthony Fauci predicted on Wednesday the country will meet its goal of a coronavirus vaccine by year’s end and was unmoved by the prospect that China would get there first.
Looks like Dr. Fauci forget to actually use his face mask while watching the Kaepernickers playing baseball. I’m sure the media will question him about it. After all, as he says, we’re in this together and everyone needs to obey the the science.
Dr. Fauci threw out the ceremonial first pitch at the season opener Thursday night between the Washington Nationals and the New York Yankees. It was a wild curve, which Fauci failed to flatten, but the pumped in crowd noise cheered anyway.
While there are no guarantees, “I feel good about the projected timetable,” Fauci told Reuters in an interview.
Pennsylvania rolls back reopening after reporting about 1,000 new infections Wednesday – re-imposes restrictions on bars, restaurants, and gatherings.
Gov. Tom Wolf announced broad new statewide restrictions on bars and restaurants and larger indoor gatherings on Wednesday.
Wolf and public health officials detailed the new restrictions in a news conference Wednesday, which aired live on WFMZ.
Restaurants’ indoor capacity is now limited to 25%, Wolf said. Current outdoor dining rules remain in effect. Indoor gatherings will be limited to 25 people or less, Wolf said in the news conference. The limit on outdoor gatherings remains at no more than 250 people.
Alabama hospitalizations are at a record, with worryingly, 41% of cases between 25 and 49 ys old.
Update (15:45ET): South Africa has breached 300,000 COVID-19 cases on Wednesday, mostly on the African continent, reported Reuters.
Africa’s most industrialized nation recorded a rise of 12,757 cases on Wednesday to reach 311,049 confirmed COVID-19 cases, its health ministry said in a late evening statement, a little over four months since the first case was established in the country.
It has tested 2,278,127 people so far and has seen a total of 160,693 recoveries and 4,453 deaths, the statement said. – Reuters

Update (15:05ET): The Pasadena Tournament of Roses Association has announced via Global Newswire, in a corporate press release, that “with reluctance and tremendous disappointment,” the 2021 Rose Bowl Parade on New Year’s Day will be canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“The health and well-being of our parade participants and guests, as well as that of our volunteer members, professional staff and partners, is our number one priority,” Bob Miller, 2021 President of the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Association, said in the release.
“This is not what any of us wanted, and we held off on announcing until we were sure that safety restrictions would prevent us from continuing with planning for 132nd Rose Parade,” Miller said.
“Enjoyed by millions worldwide, the Rose Parade is held each January 1 in celebration of the New Year. Since its inception in 1891, the Parade has not occurred only three times – the wartime years of 1942, 1943, and 1945,” the release states.
All of this suggests large gatherings will be banned in individual states through this year and into next.

Update (14:30ET): The Washington Post outlines the top twelve states with highest daily reported cases per capita:
Update (14:15ET): Illinois reported 1,187 new COVID-19 cases Wednesday with eight deaths. The state has now reported total cases of around 156,700 and 7,256 deaths.
- ILLINOIS COVID CASES RISE TO 1,187 WEDNESDAY FROM 707
- ILLINOIS POSITIVITY RATE HOLDS AROUND 3%
Hospitalization numbers slightly increased, with 1,454 hospitalizations for COVID-19. Of those patients, 324 were in ICUs, and 130 were on ventilators, as of Tuesday night.

Update (12:07ET): A.P. News reports Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt has tested positive for COVID-19 and is isolating at home.
The first-term Republican governor has backed one of the country’s most aggressive reopening plans, has resisted any statewide mandate on masks, and rarely wears one himself.
Stitt attended President Donald Trump’s rally in Tulsa last month, which health experts have said likely contributed to a surge in coronavirus cases there.

Update (10:56ET): Florida has surpassed 300,000 cases of COVID-19 on Wednesday morning after reporting 10,181 new cases and 112 deaths.
- FLORIDA COVID-19 CASES RISE by 3.5% VS. PREVIOUS 7-DAY AVG. 4.5%
- FLORIDA POSTS 112 DAILY COVID-19 DEATHS AMONG RESIDENTS
There were declining caseloads after some of the most significant totals of the entire pandemic were reported on Sunday (15,300) and Monday (12,624). On Tuesday, a grim reminder the epidemic continues to ravage the Southern part of the U.S., was when 132 deaths were recorded (highest death toll reported during the pandemic).
“Florida currently has 8,324 Covid-19 hospital patients, compared with 8,187 at a comparable time on Tuesday, according to Florida’s Agency for Health Care Administration. Three counties in southeast Florida — Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach — have the largest numbers of patients with a primary diagnosis of Covid-19, accounting for 3,701 of the total,” Bloomberg noted.
A top Florida medical expert warned the Sunshine State “is now the epicenter for the virus.”
“What we were seeing in Wuhan [China] five months ago, we’re now seeing here,” said Lilian M. Abbo, M.D., an infectious diseases specialist at the University of Miami Health System and the Chief of Infection Prevention for Jackson Health System, was quoted by WPLG Miami.
Jackson Health System President and CEO Carlos Migoya blame the exponential rise of COVID-19 cases on people not wearing masks.

Following in the footsteps of tech hub Bangalore, nearly a dozen Indian states have imposed a partial lockdown in high-risk areas as of Wednesday morning in the U.S. as yet another record jump in new COVID-19 infections pushed India’s total number of confirmed cases above 900k, after topping 800k just three days ago.
India reported 29,429 new cases on Wednesday, a new record, bringing its total reported incidents to 936,181. Of those 24,309 have died, with 582 of those deaths reported over the last 24 hours. The country is on track to pass 1 million cases in the next day or two, making India the third country – after the U.S. and Brazil – to confirm more than 1 million cases.
Like everywhere else, it’s widely suspected that the actual numbers are much higher, as limited testing and inadequate surveillance have made it difficult to capture every case.
In addition to Bangalore, which announced its lockdown plans earlier in the week, the eastern state of Bihar, with a population of 128 million, has imposed a new partial lockdown due to its weak healthcare system along with nearly a dozen other countries. Since Saturday, Bihar has recorded 1,000+ cases each day despite the limited number of tests available.
In East Asia, South Korea confirmed 39 new cases, up from 33 a day ago: Total infections reached 13,551 with 289 deaths.
Meanwhile, the U.S. reported 60k+ infections again on Tuesday as the 7-day average hit a new record high.
In total, the U.S. has confirmed 3,546,566 cases and 139,166 deaths, according to Worldometer.
Though daily case totals remain near record highs, Goldman warned that Arizona, one of the worst-hit states, might finally be past its peak as ICU capacities remain alarmingly close to 100%.
As we reported last night, Tokyo raised its alert for coronavirus infections to the highest of four levels on Wednesday, after new cases spiked to record levels in the Japanese capital. Fearing a second wave of diseases, the Japanese government also suspended a travel campaign encouraging domestic tourism (which was widely criticized as irresponsible after it was announced).
India isn’t the only major hot spot seeing new cases spiral out of control: Brazil recorded 41,857 new cases of the novel coronavirus in the past 24 hours and 1,300 further deaths, according to the Health Ministry. The country now has 1,926,824 confirmed cases and 74,133 deaths, making Brazil a distant second behind the U.S.
Finally, the southern Chinese city of Pingxiang, in the southern Chinese province of Jiangxi, has become the latest to warn about coronavirus detected on the packaging and container of imported Ecuador shrimp.
This isn’t the first time China has accused imported seafood of harboring the virus.
Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine Induced Adverse Reactions In “More Than Half” Of Trial Participants
A highly anticipated clinical trial for a potential COVID-19 vaccine managed in part by the American drug company Moderna has resulted in some adverse effects in more than half of the trial’s participants, with one test group reporting “severe” symptoms.
The trial, which is also being sponsored by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, administered the vaccine “as a 0.5-ml injection in the deltoid muscle” in two shots spaced about one month apart. Two separate groups received 25-microgram and 100-microgram doses, respectively. A third group with a 250-microgram dose was subsequently added.
The vaccine “induced anti–SARS-CoV-2 immune responses in all participants,” the research team reported Tuesday in the New England Journal of Medicine. Researchers said that “no trial-limiting safety concerns were identified.” Yet a majority of participants still reported at least one side effect.
“Solicited adverse events that occurred in more than half the participants included fatigue, chills, headache, myalgia, and pain at the injection site,” the report states. Fever, joint pain and nausea were also reported.
Side effects grew more common with more (and larger) injections, the scientists write:
“Systemic adverse events were more common after the second vaccination, particularly with the highest dose, and three participants (21%) in the 250-μg dose group reported one or more severe adverse events.”
Notably, every participant in the two larger-dose groups reported adverse reactions after their second injections. One study participant in the smallest-dose group, meanwhile, was removed due to having developed hives after the first round of injections.
The scientists said that due to the ongoing status of the project, they are not yet “able to assess the durability of the immune responses” generated by the vaccine, but that they intend to follow participants “for 1 year after the second vaccination” and examine regular blood samples to monitor the vaccine’s effects.
A large trial “expected to evaluate a 100-μg dose” is “anticipated to begin during the summer of 2020,” the report states.

The accumulating death toll from Covid-19 can be seen minute-by-minute on cable news channels. But there’s another death toll few seem to care much about: the number of poverty-related deaths being set in motion by deliberately plunging millions of Americans into poverty and despair.
