CDC: Mardi Gras quickened spread of coronavirus in Louisiana; canceling was never recommended.  (nola.com, 4/11/2020)
A report issued by the nation’s top health agency this week says Mardi Gras likely accelerated the spread of the new coronavirus in Louisiana, but the agency conceded it did not advise anyone in the U.S. to consider canceling large events until more than two weeks after the famed New Orleans street party. 
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report, issued Friday, supports claims made by Gov. John Bel Edwards and New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell that the country’s leading medical experts never warned them to cancel parades or other large Carnival gatherings because of the deadly respiratory sickness.

96 coronavirus-related deaths reported across Orleans, Jefferson parishes.  (nola.com, 3/28/2020)
Saturday's spike in cases represents the biggest 1-day jump in total numbers the state has had so far, likely due to the increase in testing availability. Health officials on Friday confirmed 2,746 cases and 119 deaths from COVID-19 in Louisiana. 
The number of hospitalized patients increased to 927 patients and the number of people on ventilators increased to 336. The number of people on ventilators was up by 24% compared to Friday. 
Orleans Parish remains the state's coronavirus epicenter with 1,298 cases and 70 deaths, although the parish's share of cases in the state continues to shrink as the virus' spread continues. The virus has now spread to 56 of the 64 parishes in Louisiana, up from 54 a day earlier.
