RESTAURANTS IN PHILLY PIN SURVIVAL ON EXPANDED OUTDOOR SEATING
An opportunity to have widened Philly's outdoor eating place may be the only reason certain restaurants will thrive.

Katrina Era law: blocking NJ COVID-19 records?
New Jersey Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy's organization is referring to a 2005 crisis powers law ordered after Hurricane Katrina to hinder some data about the state's reaction to the COVID-19 flare-up.
Under New Jersey's open records law, The Associated Press looked for reports that Murphy required under a March official request calling for emergency clinics and nursing homes to reveal their ability and supplies during the episode. The AP likewise looked for records on any laid hold of clinical supplies approved under another official request.
The two solicitations were denied referring to the 2005 Emergency Health Powers Act, which says that reports and different records made during a crisis are not viewed as open.
The refusals come as the state is among the hardest COVID-19 hit in the country with over 10,000 fatalities and more than 143,000 positive cases. As per The Murphy organization, it's focused on straightforwardness, holding Monday-through-Saturday news meetings and posting on the web.
Different news associations report they have been denied on similar grounds, including The USA Today Network, which manages newspapers over the state. The state denied the system records demonstrating how the state functioned with the US Communities for Disease Control and Prevention, just as on how it oversaw defensive apparatus.
The Star-Ledger publisher, NJ Advance Media, looked for understandings the state made with research facilities and experts identified with the coronavirus, among different records, and says it has got no reaction.
That wasn't legislators' purpose when the bill passed, said Democratic Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg, who was a co-backer of the law. She said she would work to alter it so more data can be made open.
The 2005 law was planned for making the state's reaction to crises speedier, as indicated by an announcement at the time from the bill's sponsor, Democratic state Sen. Joe Vitale. Notwithstanding hindering a few records and reports, the bill approved the crisis isolate of individuals presenting genuine wellbeing dangers.
Murphy tended to straightforwardness in March after he and the Democrat-drove Legislature authorized another law that takes into consideration government organizations to "put forth a sensible attempt" to react to demands for open reports during open crises. When there is certainly not an open crisis announcement, authorities must react inside seven business days.

Cuatro niños de Dallas fueron hospitalizados por una enfermedad asociada al coronavirus - Univision
Cuatro niños presentaron síntomas similares a los del síndrome de Kawasaki tras haber dado positivo por coronavirus o estar en contacto con personas contagiadas.
A las preocupaciones por los síntomas del coronavirus se le han añadido las del síndrome inflamatorio multisistémico pediátrico, un mal que se ha presentado en niños que han dado positivo por covid-19. Esta enfermedad tiene síntomas similares al síndrome de Kawasaki, pero con un daño cardiaco más marcado y ha afectado a cientos de niños en Europa y Estados Unidos. El Hospital Cook Childrens de Dallas ha recibido cuatro pacientes desde el 9 de mayo de entre seis y 14 años de edad, tres de ellos ya dados de alta y uno aún hospitalizado. Y aunque solo uno de ellos dio positivo a la prueba de coronavirus, los otros tres estuvieron en contacto con personas contagiadas. Los Centros para el Control y Prevención de Enfermedades ( CDC) confirmaron el lunes que esta enfermedad está asociada al coronavirus. ¿En qué consiste el síndrome de Kawasaki? En el síndrome de Kawasaki, el sistema inmunológico del cuerpo se desborda y comienza a atacar los propios vasos sanguíneos después de que desaparece una infección. Sus síntomas son similares a los del síndrome de Kawasaki: inflamación en las arterias que puede limitar el flujo de sangre al corazón y provocar baja presión arterial, fiebre por tres a cinco días, salpullido, inflamación de las glándulas del cuello, labios agrietados,hinchazón de manos, pies y boca, enrojecimiento de los ojos, dolor abdominal, conjuntivitis, vómito, diarrea y letargo. La principal preocupación de los médicos son las afectaciones al corazón y el sistema circulatorio, pues pueden derivar en ataques cardiacos y fallas de órganos. Más de una centena de posibles casos se han reportado en Nueva York y hay docenas similares en otros países, especialmente en Italia y el Reino Unido. Los niños de cinco años son los más afectados por la enfermedad de Kawasaki, que si bien puede ser mortal, también es tratable. Mapa de casos de coronavirus en Texas, por condados Te puede interesar:
