Pacific Islanders in Southern California are dying at a higher rate from the coronavirus than any other racial group in the region and statewide, an issue advocates say is getting swept under the radar because the population is small and tends to be lumped with other ethnic groups. While coronavirus case numbers overall are lower for Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders, the death rates are disproportionately higher when the entire population is taken into account, according to the California ...

A second wave of coronvirus cases? Experts say we’re still in the 1st

What’s all this talk about a “second wave” of U.S. coronavirus cases? In The Wall Street Journal last week, Vice President Mike Pence wrote in a piece headlined “There Isn’t a Coronavirus ‘Second Wave’” that the nation is winning the fight against the virus. Many public health experts, however, suggest it’s no time to celebrate. About 120,000 Americans have died from the new virus and daily counts of new cases in the U.S. are the highest they’ve been in more than a month, driven by alarming rece...

LA County officials watching coronavirus spread data closely for hospital impacts

Los Angeles County officials said Friday, June 5, that they are closely watching numbers that could signal an increase in hospitalizations due to the coronavirus over the next two-to-four weeks — spurred, possibly, by the slow reopening of businesses and the protests against police brutality that have occurred daily for more than a week. County health officials, during an hour-long news conference Friday afternoon, also said they may be seeing a slight uptick in the number of people one coronavi...

Stanford coronavirus research: Did politically-motivated scientists hype their speedy study?

In the race to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, the world’s scientists have embraced a radically new method of disseminating information about their research, offering it quickly and without filters in the effort to understand and control this deadly disease. But their new communication model is striking at the heart of scientific integrity, publicizing research that has been corrupted by speed, sloppiness and opacity. And now the academic world is being roiled by a question for which millions of l...

Video shows states with largest number of coronavirus cases

The number of people who have tested positive for the coronavirus has been reported for days, weeks and months. But static numerals don’t show how quickly the disease has spread in each part of the United States. We’ve used data collected by The Center for Systems Science in Engineering at Johns Hopkins University to build an animation that compares the number of positive tests in each state from March 10 to April 30.

8 steps for keeping important relationships healthy during COVID-19 crisis

We can approach our collective quarantine in a Jean-Paul Sartre “No Exit” kind of way — “Hell is other people” — or we can embrace a more John Donne “No Man is an Island” philosophy. Most of us will probably do a little of both. Hell, at times, can be other people, especially when you’re trying to work and certain daughters are nostalgia watching an old video in which kids march around 1970s-era Disneyland singing. And singing and singing. (Granted, it’s a very low level of hell, like a starter ...
