    There may never be a 'silver bullet' for treating Covid-19, according to the head of the World Health Organization (WHO).  Countries around the world are locked in a race against time to test and produce a safe and effective vaccine for the coronavirus. But Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director general of the UN agency, said today that scientists may never find one that works.  He said for now, stopping outbreaks 'comes down to the basics', urging nations to continue with test, trace and isolate schemes.  It comes as the WHO's top epidemiologist today said the infection kills 0.6 per cent of all patients — making it six times deadlier than seasonal flu. Dr Maria Van Kerkhove admitted the estimate 'may...

    If the stress of the coronavirus pandemic isn't enough to deal with, people are now losing clumps of hair over it, but famed dermatologist Dr. Pimple Popper insists it's a normal physiological response to a stressful event — and nothing to worry about.  The California-based physician, whose real name is Dr. Sandra Lee, took to TikTok on Thursday to explain that people who are shedding a seemingly alarming amount of hair are likely experiencing pandemic-induced telogen effluvium, a form of temporary hair loss that occurs after a stressful event.  'Right now, we're seeing a lot of people in our offices complaining about hair loss,' she says. 'People are noticing their hair is falling out. They are freaking out. That's normal to...

    Bill Belichick always has a plan. After inside linebacker Dont’a Hightower, right tackle Marcus Cannon, safety Patrick Chung, running back Brandon Bolden, fullback Danny Vitale and lineman Najee Toran all opted out of the 2020 NFL season amid coronavirus concerns, things began to look bleak for the Patriots season. But a league executive who spoke to ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Tuesday remains confident that Belichick will find a way to make the situation work in his team’s favor. “Bill is masterminding all of this somehow,” the source told Schefter via text message. A growing list of NFL players have bowed out of the season — coincidentally as MLB deals with the Marlins’ coronavirus outbreak — though the trend has hit the Patriots organization disproportionately hard. According...

    London (CNN)Online anti-Semitic hate incidents in the United Kingdom are on the rise, with conspiracy theories accusing Jews of creating and spreading Covid-19 circulating online, a report published Thursday has warned. The Community Security Trust (CST) recorded 789 anti-Semitic incidents across the UK from January to June 2020, with the majority of incidents in cities with the largest Jewish populations: London and Greater Manchester. Although the figures show a 13% fall from the 911 incidents recorded in the first half of 2019, it is the third-highest number of incidents the CST -- which has been recording anti-Semitic incidents since 1984 -- has ever recorded in the January to June period of any year, the charity said. Online anti-Semitic incidents rose...
    COVID-19 : Photo: Shutterstock And yes, confinement is not only good for the environment, it is also good for newborns. Indeed, the quarantine seems to have caused a drastic drop in the births of premature babies. The proof with these two edifying studies. This spectacular result comes to us from Irish and Danish doctors. During confinement, professionals participated in an amazing experiment: measuring the effects of such a measure on premature births. To do this, Irish doctors looked at statistics from the University Maternity Hospital in Limerick. They therefore compared the number of preterm births that had taken place each year, between January and April. Since 2001, 30,000 infants weighing less than 1.5 kilograms have been born in this...
    Many people infected with the coronavirus may not show symptoms, but Virginia now has an idea about how many residents have unknowingly carried and potentially exposed others to the disease. Preliminary results from the Virginia Coronavirus Serology Project show about 2.4% of adults in Virginia carry antibodies, indicating they had COVID-19 at a time in the past. “This is about what I would have expected; the prevalence of the disease is relatively low,” state Health Commissioner M. Norman Oliver said during a Wednesday teleconference. Relatively low infection numbers aren’t necessarily good news though. “The big take-away from this, of course, is that the overwhelming majority, a very large portion of the population of the Commonwealth, is still vulnerable to infection;...
    The New York City area lost more than 1.5 million jobs in June compared to a year ago, the most of any U.S. metro region.  The area, which includes the five boroughs as well as Newark and Jersey City, N.J., saw its unemployment rate rise to 17%, up from 15.3% in May and significantly higher than the national rate of 11.2% in June, as the former epicenter of the pandemic continued to shed jobs, according to data from the U.S. Labor Department on Wednesday. New York City may have finally entered Phase 4 of its reopening, but with museums and Broadway theaters closed, bars and restaurants only open for limited outdoor seating, and travel restrictions placed on incoming visitors...

Across the Asia-Pacific region, where countries were among the first hit by the virus and the first to contain it, there have been new and in some cases seemingly unexplained increases in the number of infections. Governments that had previously been lauded for their response to the pandemic now seem to be struggling. All this is concerning news for those where the first wave of the virus has yet to come fully under control, let alone in the disaster zones...
    BY ROSS RAMSEY JULY 27, 2020 About 6% of the people in Texas are undocumented immigrants. They work and live in the state, and they pay taxes. They’re not citizens, and they can’t vote. Their presence in Texas increases the population of the state, and the number of people Texas sends to Congress is directly tied to the number of humans in the state. Not just voters, not just citizens. Humans. The Trump administration wants to keep noncitizens out of the count used to determine how many people Texas sends to Congress. Undocumented immigrants may not be voters, but excluding people who live in and contribute to society is both undemocratic and unrepresentative. And it’s not about participation. We count kids, after all, because...

Cook Political Report changed its Senate rating Thursday, now favoring Democrats to take back the upper chamber this November.

    Hundreds of Americans who needed new hearts took themselves off of waitlists amid the coronavirus pandemic. About 75 percent more people inactivated themselves off the organ waitlist in comparison with the period before the pandemic. What's more, there was about one-quarter fewer donor organs were collected in spring 2020 than in winter of the same year. The team, from New York– Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Irving Medical Center, says the findings are concerning because many people will never receive the new organs they so desperately and will die before undergoing a transplant.
