Coronavirus (COVID-19) tally as compiled by Johns Hopkins University. (Previous numbers in parentheses.)
Total U.S. confirmed cases: 30,931,178 (30,851,290)

Total U.S. deaths: 559,219 (556,578)

Total global cases: 133,311,664 (132,605,091)

Total global deaths: 2,891,206 (2,876,691)

Increase in cases focused in just five states


New coronavirus (COVID-19) infections have been on the rise recently, and health officials now say it appears that nearly half the new cases are occurring in just five states.

An analysis of data collected by The COVID-19 Tracking Project at Johns Hopkins University shows that New York, Michigan, Florida, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey accounted for 44 percent of all new infections between March 29 and April 4. They reported a combined 197,500 cases out of around 452,000 reported nationwide.

New York leads the nation in new infections. The state logged 52,922 cases last week, or an average of about 7,560 a day. That makes up about 12 percent of U.S. cases of the virus.

Clinical trial to examine vaccine reactions


The Moderna and Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines were tested in clinical trials before they were approved for use. Now, a new clinical trial will examine the reason why some patients have severe allergic reactions when given the shots.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is running the trial, which will involve 3,400 adults. Most of the subjects have histories of severe allergic reactions. Researchers say they will look for a genetic pattern or other factors that can help predict who has a higher risk of a reaction.

While some people have experienced anaphylaxis when given the mRNA vaccines, they are not common. Scientists at two Boston hospitals monitored nearly 65,000 people who received the shots and found only 0.025 percent experienced the most severe type of allergic reaction.

Carnival reports record bookings


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) may be keeping U.S. cruise ships in port but many consumers are eager to get back on the high seas. Carnival Cruise Line is reporting record bookings during the first quarter, which are 90 percent higher than in the fourth quarter of last year. Bookings for 2022 are said to be higher than 2019 levels.

“Everybody wants to go away,” David Bernstein, Carnival’s chief financial officer, said in a conference call with analysts. “And I will tell you, the next best thing to actually going away is planning a vacation. And that’s what a lot of people seem to be doing right now.” 

Carnival is also eager to get sailing again. The company said that if the CDC doesn’t lift its “no sail” order soon, it could shift its home ports to those outside of the U.S. 

New jobless benefits claims increased last week


After a big improvement the previous week, layoffs apparently have increased again. The Labor Department reports that initial claims for unemployment benefits rose to 744,000 last week, an increase of 16,000 from the previous week.

The previous week's level was revised up by 9,000, from 719,000 to 728,000. The four-week moving average was 723,750, an increase of 2,500 from the previous week's revised average. 

The total number of Americans still receiving unemployment benefits continued to go down last week, suggesting more people are finding jobs. Continuing claims totaled 18,164,588, a decrease of 50,862 from the previous week. 

Schwab: Pandemic created millions of new stock traders


One of the biggest stories on Wall Street so far in 2021 has been the rise of the individual investor and the so-called “Reddit revolution,” in which social media fueled the stocks of struggling companies like Gamestop and AMC.

A new survey from brokerage firm Charles Schwab has now linked that phenomenon directly to the pandemic. It found that 15 percent of all current U.S. stock market investors say they first began investing in 2020.

“We’ve seen tremendous growth and engagement among individual investors over the past year as a result of lower trading costs, new products and services aimed at greater ease and accessibility, and the investing opportunities presented by market volatility,” said Jonathan Craig, Schwab’s senior executive vice president and head of Investor Services. “A big part of this growth is Generation Investor – the large number of people who are bound together not by their birth years but by when they got started in their investing journey.”

Around the nation

  • Vermont: Health officials are concerned about the emergence of COVID-19 variants. Gov. Phil Scott says the state has now recorded three different variations of the virus. Like two other variants found in the state recently, scientists believe the newly detected P.1 variant may be up to twice as transmissible as the original strain of the virus. 
  • New Mexico: While many states have begun loosening COVID-19 restrictions, it’s still business as usual in New Mexico. A WalletHub survey shows that the state is the most restrictive in the nation even though it has one of the lowest positivity rates in the nation -- 2.5 percent.
  • Illinois: The state’s vaccination efforts got a big boost this week when Kane County's mass COVID-19 vaccination site in Aurora opened thousands of new appointments. Specifically, the site is administering the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which has been in short supply in other states.

This week we drove the all-new 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander, and we share our first impressions on the interior styling, and how it handled on our track. Rivian, the fledgling electric truck and SUV nameplate, just announced a plan to install EV chargers at places known for outdoor recreation: state parks and campsites. We talk about how this plan differentiates it from other automakers, and whether it's enough to stand out in a market dominated by Tesla. We also discuss the potential resale value of gas-powered cars in a future that could be dominated by hybrids, why cars from different brands that share a parent company might have a big difference in quality, and the best way to judge a car for long-term comfort during a test drive. ----------------------------------- Subscribe to Talking Cars on Apple Podcasts!

FTC Video: Avoid COVID-19 Stimulus Payment Scams | Federal Trade Commission


Related Videos On: Avoid COVID-19 Stimulus Payment Scams | Federal Trade Commission


Scammers are following the headlines about economic impact payments. Know how to spot and avoid the scams to keep your money and information to yourself. Learn more at https://ftc.gov/coronavirus. ********************************** Transcript: Hi, I’m Becca Kelly Slaughter, Acting Chair of the Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency. You’ve probably heard the great news that the American Rescue Plan is now law. That means lots of people will soon be getting desperately-needed economic impact payments—some folks call them stimulus payments—of up to fourteen hundred dollars. Many of you have been here before, so you know these funds will come through direct deposit, check, or debit card. But we here at the FTC would like to remind you that scammers follow the headlines, too. So here are a few sure ways to spot a scammer trying to take your money or personal information. First, know that nobody in the government will ask you to pay anything up front to get your economic impact payment. There’s no way to get your payment faster, and there’s no form to fill out. That’s simply a scam. Second, the government will not call, email, text, or message you on social media to ask for your Social Security, bank account, or credit card number. Anyone who does is a scammer. Third, anyone who tells you to pay by money transfer, gift card, or cryptocurrency is a scammer. No matter WHY they say you need to pay. If you spot these scams, tell the FTC at ReportFraud.ftc.gov. Every report helps us try to stop scammers. And let me say a word to would-be scammers: the FTC will use all of its enforcement authority to come after bad actors who try to take advantage of people anxiously awaiting relief. To learn more about avoiding pandemic-related scams, visit FTC.gov/coronavirus. And help us spread the word. Share these tips and this video through your network. Thanks for helping us protect people from scams. ********************************** The Federal Trade Commission deals with issues that touch the economic life of every American.
