    Schools can be used as COVID-19 vaccine centers under new state guidelines, but they’ll have to apply to health authorities for the role — and the more pressing issue is the shortage of doses, not the lack of inoculation sites. The ability to use campuses for vaccinations has been the subject of an assertive push by local school officials, especially Los Angeles schools Supt. Austin Beutner, who made the issue a central focus of a briefing this week. “We welcome the interest from schools,” the health department said this week in written responses to questions from The Times. The department also noted that there would be challenges to setting up campuses for this purpose, including proper storage of the vaccines in regular or ultra-cold freezers, depending on the vaccine, and the chain of documentation. “The complexity of issues including cold-chain requirements and the significant documentation requirements with the state...

    Lagos, Nigeria (CNN)When Alvan Godwin suffered a psychotic episode linked to schizophrenia in November 2018, his parents took him to church for prayers. His mother was of the opinion that his illness was a 'spiritual attack' linked to evil spirits. "My mum thought it was something spiritual from her side of the family.

I remember I was laying down on the ground and people were all over me praying. I didn't want to react but the prayer wasn't working," Godwin said. He added that when they realized on the way back home from camp that the expected healing didn't happen, they brought in another pastor to pray for him at home. Locked up...

    Creative Commons/MorganAccess to primary health care is at a crisis point throughout Minnesota and the United States, and community health centers are a solution.

Green Center national survey finds that 2 in 5 primary clinicians won’t have enough cash on hand to stay open through August because the COVID-19 pandemic has impeded their ability to bill services. (Larry A. Green Center, COVID-19 Primary Care Survey, Series #15.) This short-term phenomenon is layered on top of an already under-resourced primary care system in the U.S. The Primary Care Collaborative finds the country spends 6-7% on primary health care services (Primary Care Collaborative, Investing in Primary Care: A State-Level Analysis). This underinvestment in primary care yields more expensive spending in preventable emergency room visits and hospitalizations...

    Coronavirus — The Ministry of Health continues trying to quantify the damage that the coronavirus pandemic has caused in Spanish residences. However, the dance of figures has prevented, to this day, the ministry from giving exact figures on the drama experienced in Spanish residences.
