This action was being intensified when a larger number of cases came to light. In stage three it is also hard to find out the source of infection and the transmission is very quick which infects large number of people. Strict criteria in the beginning of the outbreak kept many people from getting tested for coronavirus, and it's still hard to get tested in some areas, for example.
Phil Murphy on Tuesday announced that he was closing state and county parks and extending a public health emergency he had declared on March 9 for another 30 days in response to the coronavirus outbreak . "And again, don't think that I take this action lightly".

Twenty-nine of the latest victims had no known underlying health condition and the ages of those who died ranged between 23 and 102. More than 7,000 people have died so far from the virus in the UK. In the week ending March 27, for those deaths that were registered with Covid-19 mentioned on the death certificate, 38 out of 539 occurred in hospices, care homes or other locations - 7% of the total.
Scientists at the University of Southampton found that the Sars-CoV-2 virus enters human cells undetected because it shields itself with sugars known as glycans. In the new paper, the researchers suggest that the approach they took for a MERS virus vaccine may also work against SARS-CoV-2. However, the antibody response was quite weak and it seems most likely that the vaccine's protective effect is due to the T cell response in the mouse lungs.
Mr Varadkar also said childcare support for healthcare and other frontline workers is nearly ready to go but clearance is needed from the NPHET that the planned arrangements won't themselves become a health risk and cause the virus to spread.
