Concern over rise in virus cases in US Northeast

HARTFORD, Conn. — Dr. Deborah Birx of the White House coronavirus task force says she is concerned about the uptick in coronavirus cases in the Northeast.

She said Thursday at the University of Connecticut’s Hartford campus that a “very different” kind of spread is happening now.

She says it’s not happening in the workplace so much because people are taking precautions. She says more people are becoming infected because of indoor family gatherings and social events as the weather cools.

She says that was a lesson learned in the South during the summer when people went indoors for air conditioning.

Coronavirus LIVE Updates: India’s Tally Crosses 67 Lakh-mark With Spike of 72,049 New Cases; Dabbawalas Allowed to Travel in Mumbai’s Locals

Coronavirus LIVE Updates: The US Food and Drug Administration told coronavirus vaccine developers on Tuesday it wants at least two months of safety data before authorising emergency use, a requirement that would likely push any US vaccine availability past the November 3 presidential election. A senior administration official confirmed to Reuters that the White House had approved the plan, which undercuts President Donald Trump’s hopes of getting a vaccine before voters go to polls. In August, President Trump had said it was possible the United States would have a coronavirus vaccine before the November 3 election, a more optimistic forecast than timing put forth by his own White House health experts. Asked on the Geraldo Rivera radio program when a vaccine might be ready, “Sooner
