NVIDIA is contributing 30 supercomputers to the fight against COVID-19 

Many people are lending their computing power to efforts researching and fighting COVID-19, and that now includes NVIDIA. The GPU maker has joined the COVID-19 High Performance Computing Consortium group tackling the disease, and plans to support researchers by giving them time with 30 supercomputers offering a combined 400 petaflops of performance. The company will add to this by providing expertise in AI, biology and large-scale computing optimizations. The company likened the Consortium?s efforts to the Moon race. Ideally, this will speed up work for scientists who need modelling and other demanding tasks that would otherwise take a long time.


Gov. Mike DeWine gives Monday, April 6 coronavirus briefing: Watch live 

COLUMBUS, Ohio--Gov. Mike DeWine, Ohio Department of Health Director Dr. Amy Acton and Lt. Gov. Jon Husted are scheduled to provide an update on the status of the coronavirus in Ohio and the state’s response during their daily briefing at 2 p.m. on Monday, the governor’s office announced. The public briefing, broadcast live from the Ohio Statehouse, comes hours before a new order by Acton takes effect extending Ohio’s “stay-at-home” restrictions through May 1. The extension, which takes effect at 11:59 p.m. Monday, will continue to require that “non-essential” businesses remain closed, though it will now also mandate that stores allowed to remain open must decide on and post limits about how many customers can be inside at any one time. The extended order also closes swimming pools, day camps, and state park camping areas, and it advises people coming into Ohio to self-quarantine for two weeks. As of Sunday, more than 4,000 Ohioans have tested positive for COVID-19, 119 of whom have died. The Ohio Channel will stream the news conference live.

Rutgers-Camden Coronavirus Tracker Suggests New Jersey Curve Starting To Flatten

A new coronavirus tracker prepared by Rutgers University-Camden researcher Sarah Allred suggests the curve of coronavirus-related deaths in New Jersey has started to flatten.

While the data doesn’t suggest New Jersey is anywhere close to being out of the woods — far from it — the speed with which new deaths are announced is starting to slow, suggesting Gov. Phil Murphy’s “stay-at-home” order is having its intended effect.



“I should also caution that we are smoothing data over several days,” Allred said in an interview. “We also will need a couple more days to see if this is really a trend.”

Murphy said late last week that New Jersey is about a week behind New York in experiencing a surge of coronavirus-related hospitalizations. Over the weekend, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said that recent declines in the rate of hospitalizations and deaths related to Covid-19 indicated the pandemic may be nearing its apex.

As of Sunday, at least 37,505 New Jersey residents had tested positive for the virus and 917 people have died.

Hospitals throughout the state’s northern counties have already been hit hard with a wave of incoming patients.

The strain being placed on New Jersey’s health system has been accompanied by persistent shortages in personal protective equipment, beds, ventilators, health care workers and financial resources to meet the needs of the surge.

On Sunday night, President Donald Trump announced New Jersey would soon receive another 500 ventilators from the federal stockpile.

State officials had asked for 2,500 ventilators from the federal stockpile in recent weeks. The 500 additional machines Trump announced will bring the total sent to New Jersey to 1,350.

“We wish Gov. [Andrew] Cuomo and all of the people in New York, great, and New Jersey. You governors are doing a great job. He's doing a great job in New Jersey,” Trump said during a press briefing Sunday evening.This article tagged under:
