Coronavirus cases and hospitalizations surge in Seattle's King County
"A catastrophe his words waiting to happen. In a press briefing, He described the exponential growth of the Corona virus outbreak. I need to acknowledge that cases, hospitalizations continue to rise and King County at alarming rates. Our cases are doubling approximately every two weeks and we reached a new peak with approximately 700 new cases reported each day last week. That's nine times higher than what we saw in late September in about 3.5 times higher than the previous peaks. We saw In the summer and in the original outbreak in the spring, we had close to 900 cases reported on the 19th. We are also seeing a sustained increase in hospitalizations with our daily hospitalizations, increasing 3 to 4 fold compared to October. That's every day 3 to 4 fold More people being hospitalized in King County for the last three weeks we've seen between 101 160 people hospitalized per week. And that number was in the low fifties during most of November. We're also seeing a recent increase in hospitalizations among 80 year olds and older and among the 60 to 69 year old group over the past week, and this is very concerning trend for us, because as you know, Previously majority of our cases and hospitalizations have been in the younger and middle aged adults.

The nation is already reporting almost half of yesterday's record Corona virus deaths this month and the day isn't over. Yet. About 1500 people lost their battle with the most in Texas. Joe Biden, echoing the call from health experts that wearing masks saves lives. Washington State saw a decrease in new weekly and total claims for unemployment benefits, down 13% from the previous week. Today, the state that was paid more than 9.5 $1,000,000,000 in benefits. I'm Charlie Harder. Appearing on Fox business today. President from said he would not approve extra money for the Postal Service because some of it would be used to process mail in votes. They want 3.5 $1,000,000. For something that will turn out to be fraudulent. That's election money. Basically. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi isn't pleased. President says he's not putting up any money for senti voting, and he's not putting up any money. For the Postal Service, undermining the health of our democracy. Adam Kelsey from ABC News is covering this and the competing Republican and Democratic ideas for Corona virus relieve in Congress. He joins us on the coma news line. Bring us up to date on the back and forth over the Postal Service. Yes, President Trump continues to claim that Ah, mail in ballots. Widespread use of mail in ballots, I should say would lead to increased incidences of voter fraud more or less, and and, as he explained this morning in the clip that you just played, he feels like the increased money. That's a part of some of these Corona virus. Relieve proposals. Some of it would be going to the U. S Postal Service, and it would allow them to carry Those Dallas that are going to be sent in by mail come November. The fact that he doesn't want expanded mail in ballots would seem to indicate that he doesn't want the money to go to the Postal Service to allow them. Handle them. So this comes in the middle of the discontinued standoff on Capitol Hill over the current virus relief deal. It would be $25 billion within the Democrats $3 trillion proposal that would be going to the Postal Service. But none of that is going to get paid out. If Democrats in the Trump administration can't reach a deal we heard from anti Pelosi today, saying that Democrats are willing to shave a trillion dollars off the ER $3 trillion deal. They want the White House to come up Ah, trillion dollars from there $1 trillion deal and basically meet them in the middle. But the Trump Administration said yesterday on the phone call with Pelosi that they're not going to do that The impact continues. We just heard from a Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell few minutes ago that he is releasing senators to go home for August recess and s so that means the earliest we could be talking about a deal is after Labor Day. Did I hear that right? Yeah. I mean, that's technically when the Senate would return Get back in session in Washington, McConnell Did say, though, that senators need to be on standby will be given 24 hour notice if a deal is able to be struck so that they can return to the capital for a vote. But as it stands right now, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, the Democratic leaders haven't met with Treasury Secretary Stephen Yushin and Mark Meadows, the White House chief of staff were leading negotiations on the White House side in several days Now, so it seems the White House is kind of willing tto rest on its laurels allow those executive order signed by President Trump hopes weekend. To potentially take a bet The Democrats, meanwhile, they don't want a budget. As I said on that $2 trillion now that they're willing to negotiate on. They want to make sure that it is a larger deal.
