Eating out is among riskiest activities during COVID-19 pandemic, CDC says”

Adults who test positive for Covid-19 were approximately twice as likely to have reported dining at a restaurant than were those who test negative, according to a new study from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The 26-case increase includes 31 new cases that have been diagnosed, minus cases diagnosed earlier that turned out to be negative.

The latest numbers released Thursday by the Maine CDC, show that the cumulative number of coronavirus (COVID-19) cases in Maine is now at 4,760, an increase of 26 since Wednesday.

At a coronavirus briefing Thursday, Maine CDC Director Dr. Nirav Shah said 15 of the new cases diagnosed in Maine in the last 24 hours were in York County, where health officials are investigating several outbreaks, including an 83-case outbreak associated with the York County Jail facility in Alfred, and 10 cases at the Calvary Baptist Church in neighboring Sanford.

"If we compare where York County is today, as compared to just two weeks ago, one incubation period ago for this virus, we see significant differences that are trending right now in the unfortunately wrong direction", Shah said in today's briefing.

"York County raises significant epidemiological concerns", Shah said.

"As to Rhode Island and MA [being exempted], we're not there yet", Shah said. Thursday, he said investigators are trying to determine whether the other outbreaks under investigation are associated in any way with the wedding.

A total of 134 people have died in ME during the coronavirus pandemic, including three whose deaths were connected to the ME wedding, even though they did not attend it.

Dr. Shah advises people to be ready for a potential COVID-19 spike from the Labor Day weekend within the next ten to twelve days.

The rest of those in MI who died had other comorbidities, with COVID-19 as the primary cause. 4,287 of those cases are confirmed while 473 are deemed probable. 431 patients have had to be hospitalized at some point.

In the CDC's "Weekly Updates by Select Demographic and Geographic Characteristics Provisional Death Counts for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)" report on August 26, a co-morbidities table shows the types of health conditions listed as contributing causes on death certificates involving COVID-19.
