AUSTRALIAN FINANCE REVIEW The AFR is in New Jersey, a state where more than 30,000 people have been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the last week.
The number of new infections in the state jumped from just over 2,000 to over 6,000.
Some experts have said the jump is linked to a higher level of COVID activity and a surge in coronavirus infections.
More: The coronaviruses that have killed more than 12,000 Australians so far have also been found in New York, Chicago and other US cities.
New Jersey’s COVID case-fatality rate has also jumped from 13 per cent to 16 per cent in the first five weeks of March.
But New Jersey has also seen more than 1,600 new cases of COVE-19 since the start of the year, and more than 4,500 infections of people aged under 25 in the past five weeks.
AUSTRALIA’S COVE HOSTS NEW COVID cases ‘I don’t think it is a matter of ‘if”, New Jersey Gov.
Chris Christie says.
“I think it’s a matter, in my view, of when,” he said.
While New Jersey officials have emphasised that there is no reason to panic about the coronavids surge, there have been some concerns about the state’s healthcare system.
Since New Jersey started accepting COVID samples from its residents, about 400 coronavides have been tested in the New Jersey medical system.
But the state is not yet ready to send its sample collection to the coronaccine laboratory in the US for testing.
Christie said it was a matter for the New York City and New Jersey coronaviral laboratories to decide when they would accept samples from New Jersey residents.
“I’m sure there’s some issues that need to be sorted out, and I don’t know if there’s going to be a timeline for that to be resolved,” he told reporters in New Hampshire.
Meanwhile, the New England state of Connecticut has been on the front line of the coronave outbreak in the early days of the pandemic.
There have been nearly 100 new coronavide cases reported in the second half of March, according to the Connecticut Department of Public Health.
It is now one of the states hardest hit by the outbreak.
In New Jersey and New York the latest cases are clustered in the south of the state.
Many New Jersey patients have been infected in the same areas that have been hardest hit.
Dr Matthew Bowers, a clinical professor at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New New York who has studied coronavisions in the southern New Jersey area, said New Jersey had “the most advanced” COVID outbreak in US history.
“It’s a very sophisticated coronavial virus.
It’s highly resistant to every known treatment,” he says.”
The patients, the coronaviologists and the hospital workers have a lot of knowledge about it.”
He said a lot could be done to control the outbreak in New England.
If you can’t get people into a hospital in New Jerseys, you can do other things to slow the virus,” Dr Bowers says.
