New Jersey Coronavirus Cases Jump 74% in One Day

New Jersey Coronavirus Cases Jump 74% in One Day
5 Comments

The number of coronavirus cases across New Jersey continues to climb daily, Gov. Phil Murphy said Thursday, as he ordered additional business closures.

Murphy announced there are at least 742 positive tests, including nine deaths in the New Jersey during a Thursday afternoon briefing. 

He also ordered all barbershops, hair salons, spas, nail and eyelash salons, tattoo parlors and social clubs to shut down. Several major national retailers voluntarily closed thousands of stores.

All public and private schools and colleges had to close by Wednesday. Bars and restaurants can only offer take-out or delivery, while other businesses deemed non-essential have to close by 8 p.m. Movies theaters, malls, fitness centers and amusement areas were also closed earlier this week along with casinos and racetracks.

Kohl’s temporarily closed its approximately 1,100 stores in the country at 8 p.m. Thursday. There are 38 locations in New Jersey. The TJX Companies, which includes TJ Maxx, HomeGoods, Marshalls and Sierra, made a similar announcement it was closing all stores for two weeks.

New Jersey-based Bed, Bath & Beyond also announced early Friday that it would close 800 stores nationally, while keeping open locations that carry essential supplies like cleaning products. The 800 stores closing “do not carry meaningful amounts of these supplies,” the company said.

Family loses 4th member to coronavirus: A fourth member of a large New Jersey family has died of coronavirus. Three adult siblings - two men and a woman - as well as their mother have died in the past week. Three other family members remain hospitalized - two in critical condition.

Three deaths associated with nursing homesIt’s likely three of the at least nine people confirmed to have died from the coronavirus in the state were living at either nursing homes or assisted-living facilities in Essex and Hudson counties, officials said.

Additionally, officials say at least six nursing homes and long-term care facilities around the state have patients that have tested positive for the virus.

    wow from ZeroHedge Update (1240ET): In an alarming video that shows just how huge demand is for COVID-19 tests, a drive-thru testing site in Bergen County has a line that's "several thousand cars long".

      I don’t get it! What does it matter of you have the virus or not? You’re either going to survive it or die of it. Stop stressing over it folks!
      The country is shutting down due to this virus, financial collapse and war

        Knowledge is power. It is important to know if you are Infected but just not displaying symptoms, so if you are infected and not showing symptoms, you can isolate yourself from the rest of your family.

        If you just have a normal cold or flu, no special isolation is necessary.

        This is how COVID19 Spreads: people with no symptoms infect others unknowingly. Most people assume that one is infection free, if one has zero symptoms.

          AGREED: Anyone working in Food Prep/Food Delivery should be tested daily. That one Pakastani guy basically fanned the flames, spreading it to all of Italy. He worked in a Chinese restaurant as a delivery guy. A stitch in time, saves nine .... and lives.

    Now that the US has switched to a Quasi War Time Status on this Virus, will they release the True numbers? Do they want to kill the internet so that people won't get true numbers from Funeral Homes?

      Keep praying Pres. Trump will show his White Hat mettle here.
      We haven't even begun to see what the real numbers are.
      We do know NYC has at least some hospital overruns.
      One doctor said we need to wait 2 weeks and then see with the extra testing and the social distancing, what are the results? Are new infections way down or not?

        I found a website in CA that is posting the real numbers and their graph is connected to a real live data base which keeps getting updated.

        https://www.sacbee.com/news/california/article240712141.html

        Click on "get the data" in blue, and it will take you to a spread sheet with numbers per county. CA is now up to 1,077 cases, up 299 since yesterday. SF Bay Area went into Lock Down a few days ago, and actually is doing better as a result. The rest of the state (So. CA) is getting much worse, cuz no lock downs. But last night Governor ordered whole state to lock down. So we should start seeing the number of infected going down. Of course, keep in mind, a lot more people are being tested these days, who may have had symptoms for over a week now. New testing capabilities will cause an increase in the numbers, not necessarily more people infected. See what I mean? They were infected earlier, but not tested, so not included in the numbers.

      Can you get real numbers from funeral homes now? I have no clue how to do that. I haven't found that kind of thing online, either.

      Honestly though, I think the answer is probably no, at this time. They, the powers of the government, don't really care if you know how many are dying.They aren't reporting things correctly yet, so the number of true deaths are much higher, but that's part of the reporting system, not a conspiracy. (Not directly.)

      No, my guess is that they want to keep people from being able to coordinate attacks against the state. We have right wing groups claiming this is a hoax, meant to usher in martial law, for instance.

      If they truly think that is true, why wouldn't they fight?

      You also have far left groups that will use almost anything to rip society apart. Anyone in Antifa has to be shut down now, before they can manage attacks, to make things worse. They might also try to get and spread the virus, to kill the "old establishment". Incorrectly thinking that young people take no damage from SARA-CoV-2. (In fairness, I haven't heard anything about this, but it is the kind of stupid that I would attribute to Antifa terrorists.)

      So, if that starts to happen, yes, the internet might be shut down. Either in specific areas or totally. Specific areas makes more sense, to start with, rather than cutting an undersea trunk line. It's the government after all... They can just drive up to the right processor hub and have the switch thrown.

      The test numbers will always be lowball. The indicator I'm watching is when hospitals are overrun with patients in a city or region. That's when it gets very serious.

      On this internet going down topic...

      The web is the very tool the bastards running this evil show designed and implemented, inclusive of its evolving over many years to the gigantic beast it is today.

      Much of what the cabal is doing and has been doing to achieve their agenda is accomplished through the internet.

      IMHO, they won't be taking down their own critically important tool; on the other hand do they have an alternative they can flip on thus making it possible to flip off their present internet as we know it tool?

        Yes, they have their own internet that we have never seen or had access to, via people on that inside circle. Word is also that in the future general internet access will be more restricted.
