Mexican president toughens stance, urges people to stay home to contain pandemic
Mexico's president on Friday urged people to stay indoors to prevent an "overwhelming" spread of coronavirus, taking his strongest stance yet against the pandemic that has killed over 27,000 worldwide and infected nearly 600,000 so far. "We have to stay in our homes, we have to keep a healthy distance," Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said in a 14-minute video on YouTube, warning that the health system may not be able to cope with a mass outbreak of cases, although Mexico has so far registered far fewer cases than other countries. "If we don't stay inside our homes the number of infection cases could shoot up, and it would saturate our hospitals," he said.

Influenza-like activity soars again during historic flu season amid escalating pandemic
Visits to health care providers for flu-like illnesses increased for the third straight week, jumping 13.2 percent from last week. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) notes the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in the United States "may affect healthcare-seeking behavior, which, in turn, would impact data" it receives from its influenza-like illness (ILI) network.A total of 6.4 percent of such visits to health care providers were for ILI activity; that number was 5.6 percent last week. The highest peak during all of last year's difficult flu season was 5.1 percent.The increase was not a surprise for experts in the field of infectious diseases."This is a significant event that may continue to cause continued challenges for influenza forecasting into the fall," Dr. Bryan Lewis, a professor at the Biocomplexity Institute, told AccuWeather. "We are already altering these methods to try and forecast COVID-19 and because it will be tracked by the ILI surveillance system, the forecasts in the coming weeks will be capturing this activity." Source: CDC This season figures to be the longest above-baseline flu season in at least 20 years of CDC records. This is the 19th straight week flu activity is above baseline normal (2.4 percent).Flu-like activity has had a longer stretch only once since 1999-2000, according to CDC records, and this season's third spike is expected to continue upward, according to researchers.

Deadliest Day in Italy, Spain Shows Worst of Virus Not Over
(Bloomberg) -- Italy and Spain suffered their deadliest days yet from the coronavirus outbreak. The government in Madrid warned citizens that the situation will get worse.Italy reported 969 deaths in 24 hours, and Spain 769. Italy now has 86,498 total cases, roughly the same number as the U.S. and more than China, where the disease's first outbreak occurred. A slowdown in new cases in Italy was the one silver lining.Both countries are in almost complete lockdown, with their governments counting on limited social interactions to help contain the spread of the disease. Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez convened an emergency cabinet meeting to try to chart a way out of the crisis rapidly engulfing the nation."We may be entering a phase of stabilization, but we haven't reached the peak yet," Health Minister Salvador Illa said at a news conference in Madrid.With Italy and Spain now reporting the most deaths worldwide, Europe's outbreak is stretching health-care systems and in some cases forcing doctors to choose who should live or die. The head of the World Health Organization tried to rally support for the battle against the disease on Friday, even as some world leaders like U.S. President Donald Trump question the need for extreme measures.U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who was criticized for being slow to react to the epidemic, became the first world leader to say he has tested positive and is self-isolating in his Downing Street offices with "mild symptoms."
