‘Packed us together like sardines’: Guard deployed to Capitol struggles to contain Covid

Hundreds of Guard members who poured into Washington after the Jan. 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol have tested positive for Covid-19 or are quarantining in nearby hotels.

SARS-CoV-2 mutation T478K spreading at alarming speed in Mexico

Several severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) variants of concern are characterized by mutations in the receptor-binding domain and more significant spike protein that enhance virulence by increasing the affinity of this region to the target ACE2 receptor found on the surface of cells, and could potentially better evade vaccine-generated antibodies that are specific to the wildtype spike protein. 

Study: COVID-19, Fake News, and Vaccines: Should Regulation Be Implemented?

We analysed issues concerning the establishment of compulsory vaccination against COVID-19, as well as the role of misinformation as a disincentive—especially when published by health professionals—and citizen acceptance of measures in this regard. Data from different surveys revealed a high degree of hesitation rather than outright opposition to vaccines. 

The Pfizer/BioNTech Covid-19 Vaccine Is Less Effective Against The South African And UK Variants Than Against The Original Virus, According To A New “Real-World” Study From Israel

The novel mRNA vaccines of Moderna and Pfizer/BioNTech are among the most effective of all the developed vaccines at preventing infection and disease. For that, we are all grateful. But even the best vaccines fail to protect some people some of the time. The clinical trial data from both the Pfizer/BioNTech and the Moderna shows they are around 95% effective, which means that 5% of those fully vaccinated are still at risk for infection even a short time following the complete dose, when the vaccines are thought to be maximally effective. 

How Is Covid-19 Impacting The Preparedness Of The US Military?

The outbreak of Covid-19 on the aircraft carrier the USS Theodore Roosevelt and the isolation of members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in October highlight an often-overlooked consequence of this pandemic. Despite these clear indications that members of the armed forces are susceptible to Covid-19, there is a troubling lack of information on the virus’ impact on our military’s preparedness of forces at air, land, and sea.

What’s the Fed doing in response to the COVID-19 crisis? What more could it do?

The coronavirus crisis in the United States—and the associated business closures, event cancellations, and work-from-home policies—triggered a deep economic downturn of uncertain duration. The Federal Reserve stepped in with a broad array of actions to limit the economic damage from the pandemic, including up to $2.3 trillion in lending to support households, employers, financial markets, and state and local governments.

“Long Haul” COVID-19 Associated With More Medication Use, Higher Risk of Death

A new study suggests that many patients with long-term COVID-19 symptoms still experience health issues six months following infection, are survivors with “long haul” disease have a greater risk of dying and use a more significant number of medications than patients who have fully recovered from the virus. 

Data from 10 cities show COVID-19 impact based on poverty, race

Neighborhood income and other structural factors have significant impacts on whether an individual in the area has been infected with or died from COVID-19, a new national study finds.
