Covid guarantee:

    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki dodged when pressed about whether President Joe Biden’s coronavirus relief package would provide millions in funding to abortion providers at a Tuesday press conference. A reporter pressed Psaki on what amounts to billions of dollars in Biden’s relief package that could go to the abortion industry. The Hyde Amendment specifically prohibits taxpayer dollars from funding abortions. Biden had long supported the Hyde Amendment but reversed his position on it during the 2020 Democratic primary. (RELATED: Pro-Life Leaders Condemn ‘Devout Catholic’ Biden Over His Vow To ‘Codify’ Roe V. Wade) The reporter said pro-life groups are “very concerned that millions of US taxpayer dollars will go to the abortion industry, in violation of the Hyde Amendment. We know where President Biden stand on the Hyde Amendment, but that being said, can this administration right  now guarantee that if the American Rescue Plan is passed, that...
    Evidence is mounting that the fact that a person has been infected with COVID-19 is no guarantee that they will not contract any of the variants of the disease again. One of the big questions of the pandemic is how long immunity lasts after a contagion. Experts continue to think that it is quite unlikely to become infected again and, in any case, that a second infection is not as serious as the first. But there is new data that raises concern. In South Africa, a study detected a variant of the virus in 2% of people who had already been infected with a previous version. In Brazil, new infections with a new variant were also documented. Researchers are trying to determine if a second infection helps explain a large outbreak in Manaus, where three-quarters of residents are believed to have been infected previously. In the United States, a study...
    Negative COVID-19 tests are not enough protection to make sure families will be safe if they are gathering for their Thanksgiving dinners, so further precautions are necessary to keep everyone safe, Surgeon General Jerome Adams warned Tuesday.  "It takes on average five days, but up to 14 days after you have been exposed to have symptoms," Adams said on Fox News "Fox and Friends." "Lets be real. I would rather be around someone who just had a negative COVID test. But a negative test yesterday or Sunday doesnt mean that you are safe tomorrow. It doesnt mean that you can relax your precautions." He added that hes urging people to follow his "three Ws:" wearing a mask, washing your hands, and watching your distance.  "We need to be very cognizant of the severity of the moment," said Adams. "A quarter of all of our coronavirus cases this year have occurred...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — With just days left until Thanksgiving, the rush is on at COVID-19 testing sites across Illinois. CBS 2’s Marissa Parra takes us to a testing site on Chicago’s Northwest Side, where lines were long, but many say it was worth the wait. Within the last 24 hours, well over 120,000 Illinois residents were tested for COVID-19, a single-day testing record for the state But with all those tests, health experts are worried that people who get negative test results will be lulled into a false sense of security ahead of time with family for Thanksgiving. There was a time when you might have seen a line like this at some sort of premiere, but this is the line for a COVID test, a far less glamorous reality, with just days left until Thanksgiving, a day typically spent travelling to a household packed with people.

    Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Trader Joe's has set the bar for safety among grocery retailers in Colorado — but even the best practices can't guarantee that the novel coronavirus won't gain admittance. According to the latest report from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, the chain's Colorado Springs branch has suffered an outbreak. It's one in a wave of site-based infections that's set a new record for the third week in a row. The CDPHE considers an entity an outbreak after two or more COVID-19 cases among residents, staffers or other people connected to a specific location are confirmed within a fourteen-day period, or two or more cases of respiratory illness with an onset of symptoms within a fourteen-day period are paired with at least one additional COVID-19 diagnosis. The CDPHE's October 14 update lists 897 total outbreaks in the state so far: 274 active, 623 resolved. That's...
    Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she won't support a standalone bill to offer additional funding for airlines without a guarantee from the Trump administration that a larger coronavirus relief bill would also be considered, days after President Trump abruptly shut down negotiations between White House officials and Congress. "There is no standalone bill without a bigger bill," Pelosi told reporters on Thursday. She said she conveyed this message to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin in a phone call on Wednesday evening. Mnuchin has been leading the White House negotiations with congressional Democrats on coronavirus economic relief legislation. The president sent a series of tweets on Tuesday announcing he had "instructed my representatives to stop negotiating until after the election." He accused Pelosi of "not negotiating in good faith" after she rejected a $1.6 trillion proposal from the White House.

    Adrián MateosFOLLOWBilbao Updated: 08/25/2020 18:49 Save Related News The Basque Government holds part of the citizens responsible for the drift of this new wave of coronavirus, which only last week caused 3,749 infections in the territory. “We have not behaved as the situation required,” the Minister of Economic Development, Arantxa Tapia, denounced last week. A reprimand to which Iñigo Urkullu now joins, who has lamented that society relaxed during the summer. In the press conference after the first Governing Council of the political course, which took place in San Sebastián, the Lendakari warned that containing the virus not only depends on “individual awareness”, but also on the collective. In this sense, it has called on citizens to act as “awareness agents” before those who “fail to comply with the measures” or do not behave “responsibly in this situation”. Street guards with whom the Basque...
    Lisa Taylor receives a COVID-19 vaccination from RN Jose Muniz as she takes part in a vaccine study at Research Centers of America on August 07, 2020 in Hollywood, Florida.Joe Raedle | Getty Images The World Health Organization said Friday that a vaccine will be a "vital tool" in the global fight against the coronavirus, but it won't end the Covid-19 pandemic on its own and there's no guarantee scientists will find one.  World leaders and the public must learn to manage the virus and make permanent adjustments to their daily lives to bring the virus down to low levels, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said during a press conference from the agency's Geneva headquarters. "At the same time, we will not, we cannot go back to the way things were." Throughout history, outbreaks and pandemics have changed economies and societies, he said. "In particular, the Covid-19 pandemic has given new impetus to...
    The nation’s top infectious diseases expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, touted the “record time” to launching a phase three trial for a Covid-19 vaccine, noting that the first patient received an initial dose of it just over seven months since the virus was first sequenced. Speaking with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, Fauci celebrated the rapid progress of the public-private partnership between the National Institutes of Health and Moderna in creating a trial vaccine, part of the federal government’s so-called Operation Warp Speed. “The safety data thus far looks good. Now it is crunch time. We are trying to figure out, does it actually work,” Fauci explained, before pegging the first conclusions about the vaccine’s efficacy to late fall. “It is a 30,000 person trial, 15,000 get the vaccine, 15,000 get a placebo. The trial was launched today. This is truly, Wolf, record time. The virus was first put on a public...
    One candidate for United States Senate wants the federal government to ensure that Americans don’t have any out-of-pocket expenses for a particular COVID-19 drug. The Jon Ossoff campaign said in a news release Thursday that the call for zero cost was in response to “pharmaceutical giant Gillead’s plan to price-gouge the Americans suffering from COVID-19.”  Ossoff, who is running as a Democrat, called on the Trump Administration to guarantee all Americans have access to the COVID-19 therapeutic treatment, remdesivir, with no out-of-pocket costs. From the news release: U.S. taxpayers funded at least $70 million of the drug’s development, and federal health agencies and labs were essential to proving its efficacy in treating COVID-19. Yet Gilead Sciences, Inc., which holds the patent for the drug, intends to charge up to $3,120 per course of treatment. Given the ongoing public health emergency, the huge taxpayer investment in the drug, and remdesivir’s demonstrated...
    Coronavirus — Information is a human right, which in times of a pandemic such as that caused by the Coronavirus becomes essential to guarantee another fundamental right such as health. Nicaragua, despite having a Law on Access to Public Information (Law 621), has been characterized by complaints of violation of this norm and a secrecy that prevents knowing the reality that Nicaraguans live. According to Guillermo José Medrano, Human Rights Coordinator of the Violeta Barrios de Chamorro Foundation (FVBCH)Although 13 years have passed since the law was approved, the Coordination Offices for Access to Public Information (OCAIP) have not been created, which according to the Law will function as appeals bodies against possible denials of public information, “already Nor should we speak of the National Commission for Access to Public Information (CNAIP), which is mandated to promote and comply with the Law. ” The FVBCH has documented the harassment...
    Coronavirus — The coronavirus pandemic is going to cause citizens to live an atypical summer in many ways. Personal prevention measures to avoid infections are still fully in force in the new normal and this adds to the need to take precautions when sunbathing so as not to put our health at risk. In this sense it should be remembered that the use of masks is mandatory for all people from 6 years “On public roads, in open air spaces and in any closed space for public use or that is open to the public, provided that it is not possible to guarantee the maintenance of an interpersonal safety distance of at least 1.5 meters “ The only exception to this rule is established for health problems and There is no specification regarding its use on beaches beyond those stipulated on the need for its use when it is...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Rep. Ilhan Omar announced Thursday a bill to provide jobs to Americans in areas suffering from high unemployment. Omar, a Democrat who represents Minneapolis, announced the “Workforce Promotion and Access Act,” alongside Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman, a fellow Democrat from New Jersey. According to a release, the bill would create a job guarantee program through states, localities and tribal entities in places where unemployment is higher that 10% or double the national unemployment rate. The jobs would pay at least $15 an hour and target areas like childcare, eldercare and infrastructure. Anyone 18 or older would be able to work. “Even before this crisis hit, 4 out of 10 Americans were one paycheck away from poverty,” Omar said, in the statement. “Now more than ever, the federal government has a moral responsibility to alleviate the unnecessary pain and create a federal job guarantee...

California, Texas and many other states have reported record increases in new cases of the sometimes deadly illness caused by the novel coronavirus, leading to a sobering reassessment of U.S. efforts to contain the pandemic. “It’s extremely important to have safe and effective vaccines available for everyone in this country,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told a U.S. Senate committee. Scores of vaccine candidates using a variety...
    Coronavirus — The arrival of the pandemic in Nicaragua and the attention to patients of Covid-19 has shown that doctors are all-terrain, overcoming the lack of measures, the lack of resources and the impact that for doctors represents guaranteeing the right to health in these conditions. Doctors in Nicaragua do their best to provide the right to health, established in article 25 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, but in this effort it has been their turn: to put themselves at risk and facestories of a pandemic that many times as citizens we do not know, because they are only seen in hospitals. According to Dr. Bermúdez, a Nicaraguan internist who requested that only his last name be identified, the country was late in officially reporting cases, so the information resources available to him were the experience of other countries. “At first we were a little scared because...
