    Former National Security adviser John Bolton has warned Havana syndrome could 'disable' the US government as Trump-era White House staff say they suffered from it. Bolton corroborated those unnamed staffers' accounts in a 60 Minutes special due to be screened on Sunday, and offered his own warning about the potential implications of the condition, which it is feared could be caused by a mysterious weapon. 'If we were at war and an adversary could disable the president and his top advisers, or commanders in the field, it could render us extraordinarily vulnerable,' Bolton told 60 Minutes.  'We don't know that that's the threat we're facing. But I would much rather focus on finding out the answer now, rather than finding out later when it may be too late.'    Former National Security Adviser John Bolton (pictured) says he fears the mysterious illness is a threat to the highest levels of the U.S. government Multiple Homeland Security officials who worked under the Trump administration have come forward and claimed that during their tenure they were overcome with feelings of vertigo, confusion and...
    ONCE upon a time Brits were lauded for having a stiff upper lip. Bottling up emotions got us through two world wars, a winter of discontent and the ending of Marley & Me. 3Joanna Lumley has previously been open about the full psychiatric breakdown she had in her twenties Today it’s up there with blackface and wolf-whistling on the PC scale. Nowadays we’re encouraged to “let it all go”, and seek professional help when things get a bit much. Celeb after C-list celeb cites “mental health battles” as an explanation for any bad behaviour — i.e. they got caught. So when Joanna Lumley suggested people are too quick to jump on the “mental illness bandwagon”, obviously she was leapt upon by a pack of frothing Twitter wolves. Many questioned her  qualifications in psychiatry (probably none but 75 years on this planet must earn her some pretty decent life points), while others branded her little short of a dangerous lunatic. One Twitter user foamed: “The ‘pull your socks up’ brigade has a lot to answer for. Old people seem to think...
    Covid did not originate in an infamous south Chinese bat cave at the centre of the 'lab leak' theory, a French study has claimed.  The Mojiang cave has been touted as the possible birthplace of the virus after it emerged six miners were struck down with a mysterious flu-like illness in 2012. Scientists from the now-infamous Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) were sent in to investigate at the time and sent bat samples back to the lab 1,000 miles away. One of the viruses they collected is the closest known relative to the one that causes Covid, sharing almost 97 per cent of its genetic make-up. Proponents of the lab leak theory believe that either the miners were infected with an early version of Covid or that the pandemic-causing pathogen was the result of experiments on viruses sent back to Wuhan. But French researchers now say neither could be true after a retrospective study into the medical reports of the miners at the time. They said their symptoms were too different to be Covid and questioned why no hospital staff or close...
    CBS News Daniel Wilkinson survived two deployments in Afghanistan while serving with the United States Army, only to return home and be killed by the ignorance of his fellow Americans. As CBS This Morning reported on Friday, Wilkinson died in at a VA facility in Houston, Texas this week after he was airlifted there from another hospital. After he fell ill on Saturday, his mother rushed him to Bellville Medical Center, where he was diagnosed with gallstone pancreatitis, which is not a condition the facility is able to treat. Dr. Hasan Kakli, who examined Wilkinson, made a series of calls to area hospitals to secure the veteran an ICU bed. It was in vain. While the hospitals Dr. Kakli phoned did have doctors who could treat Wilkinson, there weren’t any beds available because ICUs in the area were and remained overwhelmed with patients who have Covid-19, which so far has killed 635,000 Americans. Eventually Wilkinson was transported to a Houston hospital after a bed opened up, but by the time he arrived, it was too late. “They weren’t able to...

    Hiccups could be a symptom of Covid, doctors have claimed. Medics who treated an infected man who had hiccups for two weeks believe his symptoms were a 'rare presentation' of the illness. Experts say Covid can attack the diaphragm — the muscle that controls breathing — causing it to spasm, leading to hiccups. Hiccups have also been linked to other infectious diseases including flu and tuberculosis.  The 48-year-old, from Egypt, first developed a fever, which he treated with over-the-counter medicine.  But then his persistent bout of hiccups kicked in, becoming even more severe over the course of the week. The unidentified man then also developed a sore throat and sought medical help. Doctors noted his fever had returned.  In order to understand what was causing his hiccups, medics in Cairo ordered an abdominal ultrasound after the bout became more severe and frequent. But they found nothing unusual.    His fever — a tell-tale sign of infection — led them to carry out a CT scan. It showed he had the characteristic signs of Covid, with white patches on the scan showing the pools of...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — Chicago firefighters put their lives on the line every day, and the risks of their jobs are ramped up even more during the coronavirus pandemic. But hundreds of Chicago firefighters who got COVID-19 said they were stunned when they were told it is not considered an on-the-job illness. They told CBS 2 Political Investigator Dana Kozlov it impacts their pay and medical bills – and they’re fighting it. Chicago firefighters and paramedics are usually the first to help victims of violence, fires, and since March of 2020, COVID-19 patients. The Chicago Firefighters Union Local 2 said more than 1,000 CFD members have gotten COVID, and three department members have died from it. Yet union leaders said the Chicago Fire Department still classifies COVID-19 as a non-duty injury. “The only three who are considered duty in the eyes of the Chicago Fire Department are the three who have died,” said Joseph Senorski, political director for the Chicago Firefighters Union Local 2. One firefighter, who fears retaliation if identified, got COVID in December and was told the same. He...

    Scrubs actors Zach Braff and Donald Faison started their Fake Doctors, Real Friends podcast on Tuesday by talking about their friend Nick Cordero. Nick died Sunday morning after fighting coronavirus for three months, and Zach revealed some heartbreaking details about some of what had happened. After Nick’s death, Zach shared some details about the last text he’d received from his friend. During the first segment of his new podcast episode, Zach said as this all started, he’d asked Nick via text what he could do to help. This came shortly before Nick went unconscious, and he asked Zach to look after his wife Amanda Kloots and son Elvis. Sadly, that was the last exchange the two men were able to have. Zach, and Donald, talked about how they were committed to being there for Amanda and Elvis in the years ahead. Zach joked that he can handle the musical stuff for Elvis, and music was a passion of Nick’s. However, he joked, Donald will have to step up to do the sports-related stuff for Elvis. Neither Amanda nor Zach shared...

Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that figure as part of a statewide update on the pandemic through a Sunday press release.  “The COVID-19 pandemic isn’t over, and as we reopen New York safely and incrementally, the state government will continue to provide timely information so that New Yorkers can make educated decisions for themselves and their families,” Cuomo said. “Yesterday, less than 1% of COVID-19 tests conducted in the state were positive, which means we continue to be on the right path toward defeating the virus.” Hospitalizations related to COVID-19 were down to 1,142 on Saturday, while 332 people were hospitalized in intensive care units.
