    INGLEWOOD, Calif. (KABC) -- While COVID-19 positivity rates remain relatively low compared to six months ago, about 1% for the seven-day daily average in Los Angeles, there are new and growing concerns from the Delta variant.Many are now looking at the Delta variant's role in the pandemic, and what that means for the future."It is highly contagious. We haven't seen it be as fatal as the original variant yet, but still a lot remains to be seen since it's highly contagious," said Dr. Paryus Patel, chief medical officer at Centinela Hospital in Inglewood. "Precautions and preventions still prevail particularly more with non-vaccinated patients."Patel said there hasn't been a delta variant case in Inglewood yet, but the treatment and precautions would remain the same. He said most importantly this is the time to not let our guard down."The precautions are not any different," Dr. Patel said. "That includes hand washing, hygiene masks... facial coverings, if necessary, isolate people with positiveness or known with symptoms."Patel said viruses don't typically thrive in summer temperatures, however he is concerned about people potentially being in...
    By: KDKA-TV News Staff PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The Allegheny County Health Department is reporting 594 new Coronavirus cases and four additional deaths over the last two days. Of the newly reported cases, 575 are confirmed from 2,347 PCR tests. There are 19 probable cases. According to the Health Department, the relatively low number of new cases reported over the last 48 hours is being attributed to “the limited availability of testing last week.” They say, “It likely does not reflect a decrease in the spread of the virus in the community. The Health Department does anticipate an increase in new cases due to the holidays.” The Health Department says new cases range in age from 1 month to 98 years, with 45 being the median age. The dates of positive tests range from Dec. 18-27. There have been 3,097 hospitalizations in Allegheny County since the outbreak began. The county-wide death toll has risen to 857. Of the newly-reported deaths, three patients were in their 70s and the other patient was in their 90s. Two deaths are associated with long-term care...
    ALLEGHENY COUNTY, Pa. (KDKA) — As the temperatures start to drop, families are getting ready for Halloween and trick-or-treating. But will this holiday be canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic? Local communities are taking extra precautions to make sure that Halloween goes on. “Everybody is scrambling a little bit to come up with ways to make everything safer on a holiday that traditionally brings people together,” said Cranberry Township Parks & Recreation Director Pete Geis. “We were receiving phone calls and questions back in September about this,” said Adams Township Parks & Recreation Haley Geyer said. Geyer said Adams Township voted early to keep Halloween going despite the pandemic. There will also be a costume parade in the park with wrapped treat bags at the end. “If people weren’t comfortable, they did give some recommendations. So those recommendations would be: turn your outdoor lights off if you are in a popular neighborhood that might have trick-or-treaters or you could post a sign on your door,” Geyer said. Cranberry Township quickly followed suit with some advice for residents. “Don’t give them...
    By The Associated Press OMAHA, Neb.— More than 40% of the deaths linked to the coronavirus in Nebraska have been at nursing homes, but the overall rate of deaths in the state’s nursing homes has remained relatively low compared with national figures. A total of 185 deaths linked to the virus have been confirmed at nursing homes in the state, which is reporting 442 deaths overall. The Omaha World-Herald reported Sunday that a federal database shows that 31 of the more than 200 nursing homes in the state have reported deaths linked to the coronavirus.

Nebraska reported 18 deaths for every 1,000 nursing home residents, which is well below the national rate of 47.8 deaths per 1,000 residents. ___ HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE VIRUS OUTBREAK — Sweden seems to be avoiding second wave of infections hitting other European nations — Analysis: US...
    Hadn’t it been for herbs, many people would have lost their lives by now. If you take up any conventional herb, it will have its fair share of pros and cons for the body. However, there are several herbs that have put the entire mankind in confusion. Especially when it comes to kratom, it is hard for everyone to put faith in this plant. Although it has managed to encapsulate 100 million people globally, it is tough to say if the critics will ever be successful in getting this plant banned. Traditionally, people were only exposed to its use for recreational reasons, but now many people have started using it for medicinal reasons as well.  However, the biggest problem for this plant is, it has no proven scientific benefit in its support. Kratom continues to make its way in the news for all the wrong reasons. Its side effects are enough reasons to repulse the critics. Another problem with kratom is, it makes people feel high. This means if an individual has no perspective on the right dosage for their...

    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; and we must continue to take precautionary measures,” Oliver said. Other preliminary findings are that the infection rate in the Latino community is about three times higher than experienced in other ethnic communities, and antibodies vary by region, age and ethnicity. There’s no word yet on when more thorough results from the study, done in collaboration with the University of...

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Fireworks injuries were relatively low in the Twin Cities this year despite the anticipated uptick due to more private displays in the wake of numerous COVID-19 cancelations. In the metro area, Regions Hospital reported nine injuries that were fireworks-related and HCMC reported eight. However, fire officials have previously estimated that many more injuries are likely unaccounted for because people treat them at home.
