The number of cases worldwide continues to climb. According to health officials, there have been 1,018,948 confirmed cases of COVID-19. More than 212,357 people have recovered, and 53,211 people have died. The coronavirus pandemic is currently affecting 204 countries and territories around the world. On Friday nearly 4 billion people on the planet — half of humanity — found themselves under some sort of order to stay in their homes.

Officials in Louisiana announced on Thursday that the state's stay-at-home order will be extended through at least April 30.


The death toll from the COVID-19 virus reached 6,000 as of 7:30 p.m. EDT on Thursday after 1,000 new deaths were reported over a 24-hour period.  The number of recorded deaths in the United States topped 1,000 in a single day for the first time.  The military will operate at the Javits Center in New York City, the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, and the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas.  All three facilities were turned into makeshift hospitals by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and National Guard to help deal with the surge in patients, though they were initially expected to only house people dealing with illnesses other than COVID-19 to help ease the burden on existing hospitals.

In the U.S., the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is expected to advise all Americans to wear cloth masks in public, but President Trump said on Thursday that such a directive would not be mandatory. Dr. Deborah Birx, who is coordinating the federal response, said that social distancing, and not masks, was key to slowing the spread. She pleaded with Americans to follow the government’s safety guidelines. In New York City, the epicenter of the outbreak in the country, both hospitals and morgues struggled to meet surging demand. New York State, the center of America’s outbreak with 2,468 coronavirus deaths, estimates its stockpile of critically needed ventilators will be depleted by the end of next week, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said. And President Trump invoked the Defense Production Act to require 3M Company, a major manufacturer of face masks, to turn over stocks of much-needed respirators to the federal government. Another grim statistic on Thursday further revealed the scope of the economic disaster: 6.6 million people filed for unemployment benefits last week. The Labor Department reported the loss of nearly 10 million jobs in only two weeks.  But there is some good news,  government relief payments will begin the week of April 13. Currently the U. S. has 245,573 cases and the death toll topped 6000.

The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) confirmed that it will provide as many as 100,000 military-style body bags, known as human remains pouches, for potential civilian use as U.S. officials expect the death toll to reach up to 200,000 in the United States due to the COVID-19 pandemic, media reported on Thursday.  While the Pentagon works to buy more pouches, it will draw some initially from a stockpile of 50,000 it maintains, according to U.S. officials.  The White House invoked the Defense Production Act (DPA) to help companies receive the materials they need to build ventilators for COVID-19 patients, media reported Thursday.  In a memo released by the White House, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services was directed to use its authority to help facilitate the supply of ventilator materials for six companies: General Electric Co., Hill-Rom Holdings Inc., Medtronic Plc., Resmed Inc., Royal Philips N.V., and Vyaire Medical Inc.  Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) officials told the U.S. House of Representatives Oversight Committee this week that 100,000 new ventilators the administration was seeking to obtain will not be available until June, media reported on Thursday.  FEMA officials indicated that a shortage of ventilators would worsen by the middle of April before the COVID-19 outbreak peaks. FEMA indicated there were just 9,500 ventilators in the national stockpile, with 3,200 more expected by the week of April 13.  The Oversight Committee released documents suggesting dramatic shortfalls of equipment requested by states in FEMA's Region III, which includes Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Delaware, and Washington, D.C.

The CDC urges residents of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut to refrain from non-essential domestic travel for 14 days effective immediately.  This Domestic Travel Advisory does not apply to employees of critical infrastructure industries, including but not limited to trucking, public health professionals, financial services, and food supply.  These employees of critical infrastructure, as defined by the Department of Homeland Security ( icon) have a special responsibility to maintain normal work schedule.  The Governors of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut will have full discretion to implement this Domestic Travel Advisory.

The US State Department has issued a “Do Not Travel” health advisory.  The Department of State advises U.S. citizens to avoid all international travel due to the global impact of COVID-19.  In countries where commercial departure options remain available, U.S. citizens who live in the United States should arrange for immediate return to the United States, unless they are prepared to remain abroad for an indefinite period.  U.S. citizens who live abroad should avoid all international travel.

NEW YORK - As of 5 p.m. EDT on Thursday, New York City had 49,707 total cases of COVID-19, according to media sources.  Of those, 10,590 have been hospitalized, while another 1,562 have died. 

TEXAS - For the Houston Metro area, the number of coronavirus cases climbs to 1,725 with 20 deaths, with 170 recoveries. Several nursing home facilities and senior living centers across the Houston area are reporting a rise in coronavirus cases and unfortunately even casualties. With elderly people being more susceptible to becoming critically ill from coronavirus, this is a concerning phenomenon. President Donald Trump announced Thursday that his administration and health officials were "further recommending nursing home facilities assign the same staff to care for the same group of residents consistently to minimizing the potential spread of COVID-19.”

OREGON - Oregon officials have asked the White House for the authority to mobilize up to 1,250 members of the Oregon National Guard under Title 32 to aid in the state's response to the COVID-19 pandemic, media reported Thursday.  Authorization to mobilize the National Guard "will provide much needed logistical, medical, communications, and coordinating skills that are invaluable to Oregon's efforts in stopping and mitigating the spread of COVID-19," said a senior Oregonian official. Officials reported that guard members have already been setting up mobile hospitals and tents.

TENNESSEE - The Federal Emergency Management Agency reported Thursday that the White House approved a major disaster declaration for the state of Tennessee.

GEORGIA - Officials in Georgia reported that there were 5,444 total COVID-19 cases in the state along with 176 deaths as of 7:00 p.m. EDT on Thursday.  Of those, 1,129 patients have been hospitalized due to the virus.  Officials with the Georgia Department of Public Health say the state is now performing 3,000 tests daily.  Meanwhile, Georgia is deploying 100 troops to long-term care facilities across the state impacted by COVID-19, media reported Thursday. This week several guardsmen arrived at Pelham Parkway Nursing Home, where nearly 20 positive cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed.  Georgian officials said the National Guard will be helping with decontamination efforts, training staff, and auditing the facility's sanitation methods.

MASSACHUSETTS - In Massachusetts, members of the National Guard were expected to respond to the Life Care Center of Nashoba Valley on Friday, after five patients reportedly died and even more hospitalized, media reported Thursday.  The National Guard will do extensive testing for the COVID-19 virus on about 100 staff and patients at the facility. Officials in Massachusetts have identified COVID-19 clusters in nearly 78 facilities in the state.

FLORIDA/MISSISSIPPI - Holland America Line's Zaandam and Rotterdam cruise ships successfully berthed at Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, FL, Thursday to discharge and repatriate passengers aboard the ships.  Ten sick patients will be transported to Broward Health Medical Center, and four others will be transported to Larkin Community Hospital in Hialeah. Officials said 10 passengers requiring hospitalization are on board the Zaandam, while three other passengers who need to be hospitalized are on board the Rotterdam. One crew member also requires hospitalization, officials said. There are also 26 passengers on board both ships who are experiencing only mild flu-like symptoms, but they will stay on the ship in quarantine along with 50 crew members from both ships who are also experiencing symptoms.  Officials said 1,211 passengers will be allowed to disembark from both ships. Five charter flights have been organized for the passengers who are not sick and allowed to disembark. All of the flights are scheduled to leave Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on Friday and early Saturday morning, officials said.  Meanwhile, the Coral Princess cruise ship with 12 COVID-19 cases on board plans to dock at Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale on Saturday.  Princess Cruises said in a statement Thursday that seven passengers and five crew members tested positive after the ship dropped off samples in Barbados on March 31.  There are 1,898 people on the ship, including 1,020 passengers and 878 crew.  Additionally, the Mississippi state Port Authority has ordered all cruise ships docked at the Port of Gulfport to leave by close of business on Friday, following the statewide shelter-in-place order.  Four cruise ships, the Carnival Glory, Carnival Valor, Carnival Freedom, and Royal Caribbean's Majesty of the Seas, have been docked at the port since the cruise industry shut down in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

As of 6:00 p.m. EDT on Thursday, the Florida Department of Health reported 9,008 confirmed cases of COVID-19 across the state.  That number represented an increase of over 1,000 during a one-day period.  Of these, 2886 cases are in Miami-Dade County, while another 1,481 cases are in Broward County.  There have also been 144 deaths due to the virus.

WASHINGTON STATE - A senior state official in Washington announced Thursday that the statewide stay-at-home order will be extended through May 4 in a bid to limit the spread of COVID-19.  The order, which was originally set to expire on April 6, will be extended for at least another four weeks.  

KENTUCKY - Officials in Kentucky announced on Thursday that the state is working on plans to convert the fairgrounds in Louisville into a 2,000-bed field hospital for COVID-19 patients.       The work is being done in conjunction with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.  The state also issued a new executive order Thursday that requests visitors traveling to Kentucky to quarantine for 14 days.

NEW JERSEY - The COVID-19 outbreak in New Jersey continued to accelerate with a large increase in new deaths on Thursday, bringing the statewide total to 537 deaths and 25,590 cases.  Officials reported 182 new deaths from Wednesday to Thursday, the state's largest spike over a 24-hour period.  An additional 3,489 positive tests were also reported over the same period.

CALIFORNIA - The number of COVID-19 cases in California surpassed 9,000 on Thursday after more than 1,000 new cases were reported over a 24-hour period, representing an increase of 5.4 percent over one day.  The state now has 9,191 total cases and 203 deaths.  

COLORADO - The number of confirmed COVID-19 cases continued to rise in Colorado on Thursday, with the statewide totals reaching 3,728 cases and 97 deaths as of 7:00 p.m. EDT.       A senior state official says Colorado is facing a shortage of personal protective equipment for health care workers and has requested 10,000 ventilators, two million N95 masks, and over four million pairs of gloves from the White House. 


In Italy, initial signs of a slowdown in the coronavirus epidemic, have started appearing across the country in recent days, say officials, providing a beacon of cautious hope to other Western nations where authorities are implementing similar containment strategies - but where the infection rate is still growing fast. Following a national lockdown that began on March 10, Italy has become an international litmus test to understand the dynamics of the virus's spread, and the relative success of strict measures to stem the contagion. Though statistics vary, many hard-hit countries could be around three weeks behind Italy in their domestic infection spread. On Thursday, Italy announced that the number of deaths here had risen by 760 in 24 hours, to 13,915, as new cases grew at a steady rate by 4,668, against the previous day's 4,782, to a total of 115,242. Similar rates of growth in total cases have been recorded in Italy over the past five days, shifting between a maximum of 5.6 percent and a minimum of four percent, showing a tentative steadying of the contagion curve. Silvio Brusaferro, president of the National Institute of Health, told a press conference on Tuesday that the country seemed to be arriving at a plateau, showing that the movement restrictions were working. He also hinted at the possibility of having reached a peak in the contagion.

In Spain, the coronavirus pandemic death toll  passed 10,000 on Thursday, as the country reported its highest single-day number of deaths since the outbreak began, with the total rising by more than 1,000 to 10,348 among 112,065 infections. But there was cause for muted optimism in the country, whose devastating outbreak is slowing. As death figures rise, the rate of new infections in Spain has fallen to its lowest rate since the start of the crisis. An increase of 3,056 cases was reported in the past day, just a 4.3% jump and a notable improvement on the dire situation in the country during mid-March. Officials said the data shows that Spain's curve of cases is coming under control, and that the drastic emergency measures put in place to lock down the country are working. "The data shows us that the curve has stabilized," Health Minister Salvador Illa said in the government's Thursday press conference. "That we have achieved the primary objective of reaching the peak of the curve and that now we are starting the phase of deceleration." Deaths lag behind new infections as a measure of the speed of a country's outbreak. And even the stark 10.5% rise in fatalities Spain reported Thursday is similar to Wednesday's increase, and smaller in percentage terms than any recorded in the past two weeks.

In the U.K., Health Secretary Matt Hancock says the government has "a huge amount of work to do" to meet its target 100,000 coronavirus tests a day in England. Mr. Hancock said he was not relying on new antibody blood tests to meet the goal, which was announced after criticism of the UK's testing strategy. "It's got to happen. I've got a plan to get us there, I've set it as a goal and it's what the nation needs," he said. He said the tests would also include 500 highly-accurate antibody blood tests - to detect whether someone has already had coronavirus - performed each day by Porton Down - the military's science laboratory. Other types of antibody blood tests for mass screening had so far failed to meet the required accuracy standard and so would not be relied upon to meet the new goal, he added.  It comes as a field hospital with capacity for as many as 4,000 critically ill patients with coronavirus is to be opened in east London. The Prince of Wales will officially open London's new NHS Nightingale Hospital at the ExCeL convention centre via a video link from his Scottish home.  The U.K. currently has 34,173 cases.

In Russia,  President Vladimir Putin announced on Thursday, April 2, that the current nationwide public paid holiday will be extended until Thursday, April 30, to prevent further spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) in the country. Putin called for all non-essential businesses to remain closed and for workers to receive their normal salaries during the holiday period. However, the president also said that regional authorities will be allowed to determine which companies and organizations will continue to operate, depending on the situation. People are being asked to follow self-isolation rules and other restrictions.  Russia’s land and maritime borders remain closed at all vehicle, rail, and pedestrian checkpoints as of Thursday; Russian diplomats and freight truck drivers are exempt from the measures. All flights are except for repatriation flights are suspended. Most foreign nationals are prohibited from entering the country until Friday, May 1, and all individuals arriving in Russia from abroad are subject to a mandatory 14-day self-quarantine. Russian Railways and its subsidiary, Federal Passenger Company, are reducing or suspending domestic services through late May. As of April 3, 4149 cases of COVID-19 and 34 associated fatalities have been confirmed in the country.

In the KSA, Saudi authorities have revised the start time for the nationwide curfew for the regions of Damman, Taif, and Qatif as of Friday, April 3, to prevent further spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Overnight curfews in the three regions will start at 15:00 and end at 06:00 (local time). The same curfew hours are in effect for Riyadh and Jeddah. On Thursday, April 2, a 24-hour curfew was imposed in Mecca and Medina. Exemptions will be made for those employed in vital sectors, such as security, the military, and health services. Additionally, all commercial activities within the residential neighborhoods of Mecca and Medina will be shut down; pharmacies, foodstuff stores, gas stations, and banking services will remain open. The nationwide curfew is scheduled to end on Monday, April 13.  Other COVID-19 containment measures remain in effect as of Friday. The ban on movement into and out of Riyadh, Jeddah, Mecca, and Medina continues and travel between provinces is still prohibited. An indefinite suspension of international passenger flights is in place, as well as a temporary suspension of domestic flights, public buses, and some taxi and train service. Only businesses providing vital food, health, or utility services will remain operational. Malls, restaurants, coffee shops, and public parks are also closed.  As of April 3, 1885 cases of COVID-19 and 21 associated fatalities have been confirmed in the country.

In India, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has called on the country’s people to turn off the lights in their homes for five minutes at 21:00 IST on Sunday, and to display lamps, candles and mobile-phone torchlights in a show of the nation’s collective determination to beat the coronavirus pandemic.  Since Tuesday last week, India's population of 1.3 billion has been under a 21-day lockdown in a bid to curb the spread of Covid-19, which has so far registered just over 2,500 cases in the country, leading to 72 deaths. Speaking on Friday, Modi said: “This Sunday, on 5 April, we must all together challenge the darkness spread by the corona crisis, introducing it to the power of light. On this 5 April, we must awaken the superpower of 130 crore* Indians. We must take the super resolve of 130 crore Indians to even greater heights.” *Commonly used in India, ‘crore’ is a unit of measurement equal to 10 million.

In Australia, scientists in Australia have begun testing two potential coronavirus vaccines in "milestone" lab trials. The vaccines, made by Oxford University and US company Inovio Pharmaceutical, have been cleared for animal testing by the World Health Organization. Australia's national science agency will assess if the vaccines work, and if they would be safe for humans. The first human trial took place in the US last month, but skipped a stage of animal testing. There are several other vaccine developments occurring around the world at the moment at extraordinary speed. But Australia's Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) says its tests will be the first comprehensive pre-clinical trials of the vaccines to use an animal model. Researchers said the speed and level of global co-operation that led to this stage had been unprecedented. "Normally it takes about one-to-two years to get to this point and we've in fact shortened that to a period of a couple of months," explained Dr. Rob Grenfell from the CSIRO. Australia has 5330 confirmed cases at the time of this report.  Additionally, the corporate watchdog has warned real estate agents they face up to five years jail if they ask tenants to withdraw super in order to pay the rent. In a letter to peak real estate bodies, the Australian Securities and Investments Commission’s head of enforcement, Tim Mullaly, said the regulator was closely monitoring the situation and “will not hesitate to act swiftly to protect vulnerable consumers”. “Financial advice must only be provided by qualified and licensed financial advisers, or financial counsellors, not by real estate agents who neither hold the requisite licence, nor are an authorised representative of an Australian financial services licensee,” Mullaly said.

The move comes as tenants complain of heavy-handed demands from landlords for rent payments and ahead of a meeting of national cabinet on Friday that is expected to consider the issue. Australian housing market takes a huge hit with auctions set to plummet further this weekend. With hundreds of thousands of people suddenly thrown out of work by the shutdown of hospitality, entertainment and retail industries due to the coronavirus crisis, many households are struggling to pay the rent. The federal government has announced a six-month ban on evictions this requires each state to legislate and so far only Tasmania has given the moratorium the force of law.
