An ensemble forecast published Thursday by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now projects there will be 229,000 to 240,000 coronavirus deaths in the United States by Nov. 7.

The Florida Department of Health reported at least 3,356 new cases of Covid-19 and 144 deaths on Thursday, numbers that include both residents and non-residents of the state, according to the Covid-19 dashboard.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said that there continues to be “very, very, very low positivity levels” of Covid-19 in schools.

In particular, he said in Yellow Zones – which are third tier areas of concern, but surrounding the cluster zones with schools that are closed – out of 31,000 tests in the past three weeks, only four were returned positive.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said the city should get a gauge by Sunday whether they are in “striking range” of pulling off restrictions in cluster areas or whether they need to remain in place.

The percent of people who tested positive for Covid-19 citywide is at 1. 31%, under the 5% threshold, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio expanded on what he said is the “the fight we’re waging against a second wave of coronavirus,” noting that the city is seeing a “plateauing” in test results, though there is “more to do. ”

The city is also partnering with Medicaid plans, which cover 1. 2 million New Yorkers on testing outreach, de Blasio said.
