    When Raúl Reina *, a 37-year-old Cuban-American living in Miami, woke up in the middle of the morning at the end of June with a fever, chills and a severe headache, he had a presentiment: his greatest fear of recent times had come true. “The first thing I thought was that it was a coronavirus. So I went and got tested the same day, on a Saturday morning,” he tells BBC Mundo. Two days later, having not received the test...
            by Andrew Trunsky  The Open Society Foundations, the philanthropic group founded by George Soros, announced Monday that it would pledge $220 million towards initiatives focusing on racial equality in the United States.

    (CNN)The coronavirus outbreak is now burning primarily through states with the highest share of uninsured residents, complicating the local response and amplifying the political debate over the future of the Affordable Care Act. Caseloads are exploding in many of the 13 remaining states where Republican governors, legislators or both have refused to expand eligibility for Medicaid under the law, a list that includes Texas, Florida, Georgia, North and South Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama and Mississippi.

    By AUDREY McAVOY, Associated Press HONOLULU (AP) — Hawaiis governor said Monday he will wait another month to waive a 14-day quarantine requirement for out-of-state travelers who test negative for COVID-19, citing increasing virus cases in Hawaii, “uncontrolled” outbreaks in several U.S. mainland states and a shortage of testing supplies. The testing plan, as announced last month, was scheduled to take effect on Aug. 1. Its now postponed to Sept. 1. Many in Hawaii’s business community had been looking forward...
    Puebla (Mexico), Jul 13 (EFE) .- The 105 urns containing the ashes of Mexican migrants who died from the COVID-19 pandemic in the cities of Connecticut, New Jersey and New York, the United States, arrived on Monday at Puebla state, central Mexico. “You are already home, migrant from Puebla, rest in peace on the land that saw you born,” was the legend that was placed in each of the urns of the migrants who died from the new coronavirus during...

    BEIJING (Reuters) - China said on Tuesday it is firmly opposed to the U.S. State Departments statement rejecting Chinas disputed claims in the South China Sea and called Washingtons accusations of China bullying its neighbours completely unjustified. [nL2N2EK1IX] The United States is not a country directly involved in the disputes. However, it has kept interfering in the issue, the Chinese Embassy in the United States said in statement published on its website. Under the pretext of preserving stability, it is...
    Last month, President Trump took action to defend US servicemen and women from an illegitimate investigation by the International Criminal Court into their conduct in Afghanistan. The ICC’s efforts are unfounded and mock justice. First and foremost, the United States did not ratify the 1998 Rome Statute that founded the ICC. Successive administrations have stood by that decision and, as a result, American citizens are not subject to ICC jurisdiction. Second, the ICC is a failed institution. Despite repeated calls...
    If only the rest of the country could handle COVID as well as New York: That’s the lament of progressive commentators as COVID cases spike in the Sun Belt and the South. Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin hailed New York City the other day after it reported no deaths for the first time during the pandemic. This is what competent government can accomplish, she gushed. Former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett tweeted, “Short term sacrifice saves lives!!!” Neera Tanden, the head...
    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis was back in Miami Monday, where he visited Jackson Memorial Hospital to discuss the COVID-19 crisis. “We can’t get swept away in fear. We have to understand what’s going on. We need to understand that we do have a long road ahead,” he said. He’s speaking at a health system that announced last week it was low on remdesivir. A study shows the drug, originally used to treat Ebola, helps COVID-19 patients recover...
    Cities and states, scrambling again for adequate personal protective equipment and medical supplies to meet the resurgent coronavirus, are also having to scrap for dwindling federal funds. The $150 billion passed in the CARES Act back in March was not large enough and had too many restrictions, and since April, Sen. Mitch McConnell has refused to consider any further aid, blocking the follow-up HEROES Act the House passed in May. So states and localities, which have experienced massive declines in revenue with...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — As COVID-19-related deaths rise in states like Florida, Texas, California, Arizona, it’s leaving some doctors in other states feeling helpless. And it has to do with supplies of a potentially life-saving drug: remdesivir. CBS 2 Investigator Megan Hickey reports from Northwestern Memorial Hospital on the supply and demand concern. CBS 2 has spoken with several local hospitals, including Northwestern, that are interested in donating some of their surplus remdesivir to hospitals in states with soaring infections. But...
    CAIRO (AP) — A round of negotiations between three key Nile basin countries over Ethiopia’s contentious hydroelectric dam ended on Monday with no agreement, according to Egyptian and Sudanese officials. The setback sunk modest hopes that the three countries could resolve their differences and ink an agreement before Ethiopia begins to fill its $4.6 billion hydroelectric dam. Ethiopia had previously pledged to start filling the reservoir, even without a deal over its operation, at the start of the wet season...

    By MARINA VILLENEUVE, Associated Press ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Travelers from certain states landing at New York airports starting Tuesday could face a $2,000 fine for failing to fill out a form that state officials will use to track travelers and ensure theyre following quarantine restrictions. New York — hard-hit by the pandemic in March and April — is trying to get more travelers to comply with a June advisory aimed at reducing the spread of COVID-19 from states where...
    The mayors of several major cities in the United States are planning or demanding a reorganization to stem the tide of new Covid-19 cases, but political disagreements between the different jurisdictions prevent a unified and coherent response. While reconfigurations have been ordered in recent days in Melbourne in Australia, Lérida in Spain, Manila in the Philippines or Tangier in Morocco, such decisions remain extremely rare in the most affected country on the planet, where a revival has taken place...
    A new study has found that only four states are safely reopening their economies. The states -- New York, Connecticut, New Jersey and New Hampshire -- have met at least four out of the five benchmarks that show a community is making strong progress in battling the spread of COVID-19, according to a Vox analysis of COVID rates and best practice recommendations. The Vox study, published Wednesday, July 8, found states are not prepared to fight a future wave of the pandemic....
    (CBS4/CNN) – Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser joined more than a dozen other states in a lawsuit against the Trump administration. The lawsuit, filed in Massachusetts on Monday, claims the administrations guidance to not allow foreign students to take online-only courses is “senseless.” The new visa rule will make it harder for those students to stay in the country if their classes are moved entirely online. (credit: CBS) Weiser says the rule could impact more than 1,000 international students studying...
