The mother of France’s youngest coronavirus victim has spoken of the “unbearable” loss of her 16-year-old daughter, as the country reported its highest daily toll from the pandemic.French authorities said on Thursday that 365 people had been killed by COVID-19 over the previous 24 hours, taking the national total of those who have died in hospital to 1,696.The figure does not include those who died from the virus at home or at retirement homes, top French health official Jerome Salomon told reporters. Her condition deteriorated and her death was announced on Thursday, with health officials emphasizing that severe cases are very rare in young people.”From the start, we were told that the virus doesn’t affect young people. We believed it, like everyone else,” Sabine said. Her daughter had no known underlying health problems. The teenage girl named Julie A died in Paris, becoming the youngest French victim of the disease that more often afflicts the elderly or people with underlying health conditions.”It’s unbearable,” the girl’s mother Sabine told AFP by phone from her home in the Parisian suburbs. “We were meant to have an ordinary life.”A week ago, Julie developed a mild cough but on Saturday she began to feel short of breath, her mother said.She underwent scans in hospital and several tests for COVID-19, the disease first detected in China late last year that has now killed more than 23,000 worldwide. Train evacuation France has been in lockdown since March 17 in a bid to slow the spread of the epidemic and officials have repeatedly warned it will take time for the measures to bear fruit.Salomon said 29,155 people had tested positive for the virus so far nationwide — adding that the real number of cases was likely far higher as testing was reserved for high-risk patients.He said 3,375 patients were currently in intensive care out of nearly 14,000 people hospitalized after becoming infected.Data showed 42,000 people had been registered by their GP as having the coronavirus over the last week alone, Salomon added — again revealing that testing in France has only revealed a minority of cases.People in the country are only allowed to step outside for pressing matters, such as shopping.”It is very difficult to estimate when the peak will come… people who are ill now were infected before the confinement began,” explained Salomon.”Now there is less contact, people are going out less and get infected less. So we hope there will be fewer people getting sick next week,” he said.French President Emmanuel Macron said he had held a “very good discussion” with his US counterpart Donald Trump about the pandemic.”In response to the COVID-19 crisis, we are preparing with other countries a new strong initiative in the coming days,” he tweeted early Friday, without elaborating.The first train evacuation saw 20 coronavirus patients moved from the country’s hard-hit east to help relieve overstretched hospitals.The specially adapted high-speed train, whose carriages were transformed into intensive care units, took the group to the western Atlantic coast where they will be treated.Another evacuation is planned for Friday, this time by air.

Indianapolis, In. — Attorney General Curtis Hill today called on the Federal Communications Commission to create new rules to allow telephone service providers to block more illegal robocalls being made to consumers in Indiana. He is part of a bipartisan coalition of 34 attorneys general issuing a formal comment to the FCC.The formal comment explains that scammers using illegal robocalls have found ways to evade a call-blocking order entered last year by the FCC. Despite the FCC’s order, robocalls continue to be a major irritant to consumers in Indiana and across the United States. In 2017, the Federal Trade Commission received 4.5 million illegal robocall complaints – two and a half times more than in 2014. The Office of the Indiana Attorney General receives thousands of complaints each year with respect to illegal calls, including scam calls, telemarketing complaints and robocalls.Following an initial win for American consumers last year by the bipartisan coalition, when the FCC granted phone service providers authority to block certain illegal spoofed robocalls, the attorneys general now seek added authority for the providers to work together to detect and block more illegal spoofed robocalls – including “neighbor spoofing.”“Hoosiers should be able to enjoy peace and privacy without the disturbance of unwanted calls interrupting their routines,” Attorney General Hill said. “We need stronger measures aimed at rooting out bad actors responsible for rampant robocalling.”“Spoofing” allows scammers to disguise their identities, making it difficult for law enforcement to bring them to justice. “Virtually anyone can send millions of illegal robocalls and frustrate law enforcement with just a computer, inexpensive software and an internet connection,” the attorneys general wrote in the formal comment filed with the FCC.One tactic on the rise is “neighbor spoofing,” a technique that allows calls – no matter where they originate – to appear on a consumer’s caller ID as being made from a phone number that has the same local area code as the consumer. This manipulation of caller ID information increases the likelihood that the consumer will answer the call.In the formal comment, Attorney General Hill and members of the coalition expressed support for the new initiative, which will give phone service providers the ability to authenticate legitimate calls and identify illegally spoofed calls and block them. The added authority sought by the attorneys general will allow service providers to use new technology to detect and block illegal spoofed calls – even those coming from what are otherwise legitimate phone numbers. Service providers will be ready to launch this new authentication method in 2019.To date, the FCC has not issued a notice of proposed rulemaking concerning additional provider-initiated call blocking. The attorneys general anticipate that further requests for comments will take place on this subject.The added authority which the attorneys general seek from the FCC is not in conflict with Indiana’s Do Not Call List, in which consumers sign up to avoid receiving calls from legitimate vendors. The initiative for which the attorneys general seek FCC approval concerns illegal robocalls – which are made to consumers regardless of whether or not they sign up for do-not-call lists.For a copy of the comment, click here.

Tool Announce European Tour As Fans Wait For Album Release The tour will launch June 2019 in Berlin, Germany. The band will tour until July 2 in cities including Vienna, Austria, Amsterdam, Madrid, Spain and Lisbon, Portugal. While an album release date has not been set, frontman Maynard James Kennan took to Twitter last month to update fans it’s a “Long way 2 go but much closer,” teasing a release sometime in 2019 with his hashtags.It is an understatement to say Tool fans are excitedly waiting for this album. It’s been 12 years since the band has dropped an album and their tour announcement is only adding to the growing anticipation. The band performed in San Bernardino, Calif., last year and has performed here and there, only bringing down hope that the tour announcement doesn’t necessarily mean the album will be ready before it. In June, producer and engineer Sylvia Massy took us back to the album that started it all. Massy helped capture Tool’s live energy in their debut, Undertow.”Tool was a fantastic live band, and my biggest challenge was to capture the live energy in a studio setting, so generally during the first recordings I was just letting them do their thing,” Massy told the Recording Academy. “However, on Undertow as we started pre-production in rehearsals, I could see them getting stuck with some songwriting challenges so I stepped in as a tie-breaker.”The album, released in 1993, was the introduction to Tool’s intensely good, hard rock and something not heard at the time.”That is why it endures to this day. And for me it was a milestone in my career. It was when people started knocking on my door, instead of the other way around,” Massy said. “It’s been 25 years since Tool’s Undertow was released, yet I still get messages from Tool fans about it. It made an impact on a lot of people.”Years later, fans can only wait for Tool’s next clue.

Share David Becker/Getty ImagesJesus Campos, the hotel security guard who was shot the night that Stephen Paddock killed 58 people, gave his first media interview to Ellen DeGeneres. The shooter fired from windows he broke in a suite at the Mandalay Bay, pictured on Oct. 2, the day after the massacre. David Becker/Getty ImagesJesus Campos, the Mandalay Bay security guard who was the first victim the night that Stephen Paddock rained bullets on people in Las Vegas, gave his first — and possibly last — media interview, to Ellen DeGeneres on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.While there were no major revelations in the interview, which airs Wednesday, Campos’ account added fresh detail to a timeline of events that law enforcement officials are still working to understand.“I’m doing better each day,” Campos said, clutching a cane and looking a bit overwhelmed. “Slowly but surely, just healing — physically and mentally.”With DeGeneres’ gentle prodding, Campos told the story of the night of Oct. 1, when he was dispatched to the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino to check on an alert that a stairwell door was open.Campos took the stairs, but when he tried to open the door to the 32nd floor, it wouldn’t open. He went downstairs and took the elevator up, where he saw that a metal bracket was holding shut one of two consecutive doors leading to the stairwell.A hotel engineer named Stephen Schuck — who joined Campos on DeGeneres’ couch — was sent to look at the bracket.Then Campos said he heard what sounded like drilling, which DeGeneres clarified was the sound of gunfire. He assumed people were working in the area and turned to walk down the hall. Campos said that as he walked away, one of the two stairwell doors slammed behind him, likely catching the shooter’s attention. (Police say Paddock had put surveillance cameras in his room and in a room service cart outside his suite.)Suddenly, Campos said, “I heard rapid fire. At first, I took cover. I felt a burning sensation.” He realized he had been shot when he lifted his pant leg and saw blood. He got on his radio and told hotel staff that shots had been fired.Paddock had shot him through the door of his suite. “I didn’t know how he was shooting,” Campos said.That is when Schuck arrived from a higher floor to look at the metal bracket. Halfway down the hall, he saw Campos and heard loud noises.“At the time, I thought it was a jackhammer,” Shuck said, though he knew that didn’t make sense.Then Campos leaned out from an alcove to one of the hotel rooms and yelled at him, “Take cover! Take cover!” Schuck ducked.“Within milliseconds, if he didn’t say that, I would have got hit,” Schuck told DeGeneres. He felt the pressure as bullets passed close behind his head.A hotel guest stuck her head out of her room; Campos told her to go back in and take cover. “And that’s when more rounds were dispersed,” he said.And with that, Campos and Schuck finished their recounting of events — a key part of the investigation into exactly what happened that terrible night and why. Firing across Las Vegas Boulevard from his room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay, Paddock shot hundreds of bullets at people attending a country music festival before police say he turned the gun on himself. More than 500 people were injured and 58 were killed; about 45 people remain hospitalized.The interview on Ellen doesn’t alter the latest timeline described by Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo, which has shifted in the weeks since the shooting. Authorities originally said that Campos arrived after Paddock had begun firing on the crowds below — and that his presence diverted the shooter’s attention and ended the attack on the music festival.Lombardo and MGM Resorts, which owns Mandalay Bay, now agree that Campos was shot at about the same time Paddock started firing at the music festival. It’s not clear, with the latest timeline, what caused Paddock to stop firing.The precise timing of events, especially how quickly the hotel communicated what it knew to police, could affect lawsuits filed by victims against MGM.As Campos finished recounting his experience, he looked shaken. DeGeneres said Campos doesn’t plan to give more interviews.“I understand your reluctance, because you just want this to be over,” she said. “So you’re talking about it now, and then you’re not going to talk about it again. And I don’t blame you, because why relive this over and over again?” She thanked him for saving the lives of Schuck, the hotel guest and possibly others.Then Campos expressed gratitude to all the people who assisted that night — the police, FBI, first responders, hospital staff and the community.“Everything puts pieces together on how everyone came together to help that night, even in the darkest hour,” he said.Campos and Schuck refused to accept money from the show, but DeGeneres still bestowed the men with a few gifts. A staffer brought out a giant check for $25,000 in Campos’ and Shuck’s names to a fund for the victims of the attack.Campos dabbed his eyes and took a deep breath.
