    Costs are going to be even more out of control for many, as long COVID sets in. The Biden administration has been working hard to make the Affordable Care Act, and health insurance in general, work better. They’ve lowered premium payments all the way down to zero for many people in Obamacare (a measure that needs to be passed again before the November election to avoid a bad October surprise of premium hike notifications). They’ve implemented the regulations to end surprise billing for people with insurance, and they’ve worked with credit reporting agencies to get them to stop reporting medical debt. They’re getting rid of the family glitch in the ACA that has made insurance too expensive for many families. Earlier this week, Vice President Kamala Harris announced new efforts from the White House to ease the burden of unpaid medical bills. “I have met so many people in so many communities in our nation who are struggling with this burden. Many of whom are managing an illness or an injury at the same time and who stay up at night, staring at the ceiling wondering...
    COVID hospitalisations have "plateaued" as the UK logged another 32,608 cases today. An extra 350 fatalities have also been reported, a dip on yesterday's 651. 1 Professor Tim Spector warned while cases are still high, patients in hospital look like they are no longer rising. This is a promising sign we could be moving through the last phase of the latest Omicron peak. Infections rose to record highs in recent weeks, with one in 12 people in England battling the bug in March. In the latest data the Office for National Statistics said around one in 14 are now infected in the country. Read more on CovidPASSING THE PEAK?

    by Brian Robertson   When Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. published his book The Real Anthony Fauci in November, the fact that it was met with near-total silence from the media was hardly surprising. After all, since the declaration of the COVID pandemic in March 2020, with social media in the lead, Americans have witnessed an unprecedented suppression of any view departing from the official narrative on everything from the origin of the virus to lockdowns, mitigation strategies, and early treatment. This crackdown on dissenting opinions has been especially harsh for those who have questioned the safety and efficacy of the vaccines that received Emergency Use Authorization in December 2020. Regardless of their professional expertise or the soundness of the data they present, people have been deplatformed, canceled, and fired from their jobs for supposedly refusing to “follow the science” (otherwise known as the latest self-contradictory assertions of official public health authorities), a consensus determined by COVID Czar Anthony Fauci. Merely retweeting facts from peer-reviewed papers or official government sources that were not in line with Fauci-approved messaging that the vaccine is...
    SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Korea saw its deadliest day of the pandemic on Saturday, reporting 112 fatalities in the latest 24-hour period, as it grapples with a wave of coronavirus infections driven by the fast-moving omicron variant. Health workers diagnosed 166,209 new cases, which came close to Wednesday’s one-day record of 171,451 and represented more than a 37-fold increase from daily levels in mid-January, when omicron first emerged as the country’s dominant strain. Omicron has so far seemed less likely to cause serious illness or death than the delta strain that hit the country hard in December and early January. But hospitalizations and deaths are beginning to creep up amid a growing outbreak that is stretching worn-out health and public workers. More than 640 virus patients were in serious or critical condition, the Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency said, compared to around 200-300 in mid-February. The Health Ministry said about 44% of the country’s intensive care units designated for COVID-19 patients are occupied. Prime Minister Kim Boo-kyum, Seoul’s No. 2 official behind President Moon Jae-in, said Friday...

    GARDEN CITY, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Heart disease is the number one killer of women in the United States. It’s responsible for more deaths than all cancers combined. To mark National Heart Health Month, famed actress Susan Lucci, of Long Island, sat down for an exclusive interview with CBS2’s Jennifer McLogan and shared details of her brush with death.

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – A black bear who called the Los Angeles Zoo home for nearly a quarter-century has died. An undated photo of Ranger. (L.A. Zoo) Ranger was euthanized Wednesday due to “declining health and decreased quality of life,” the zoo reports. Ranger came to the L.A. Zoo in 1997 after being rescued from the Minnesota wilderness as an orphan cub. “Ranger touched the lives of every animal keeper, volunteer, and docent who worked with him over the last 25 years,” said Beth Schaefer, director of animal programs at the L.A. Zoo, in a statement. “Part of the reason why zoos exist is to help create a strong connection to the wildlife that lives around us, and Ranger was the best ambassador for his species in that way. When you would walk around Tiger Plaza, it was impossible to not see groups of people of all ages stopping to observe Ranger basking in the warm sun, eating berries, or just lounging in his habitat. The L.A. Zoo will not be the same without him.”

    Getty Las Vegas Raiders DL Solomon Thomas. Antonio Brown may no longer be a member of the Las Vegas Raiders but that isn’t stopping him from irritating people involved with the franchise. He continues to make the media rounds recently despite getting cut by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after a series of controversies. The wide receiver claimed that he was offered $200,000 from Tampa Bay to get mental health treatment. He then referred to a mental health facility as a “crazy house.” Raiders defensive lineman Solomon Thomas was not with the team during the Brown fiasco of 2019 but he did not appreciate the wide receiver’s choice of words. In an Instagram story, Thomas ripped Brown and told him “not to disrespect those who are trying to get better.” He also told the wide receiver to “be better.” Raiders DE Solomon Thomas takes issue with Antonio Brown describing a mental health facility as a “crazy house” Brown says the Bucs offered him $200K to get treatment pic.twitter.com/a13787hPtd — B/R Gridiron (@brgridiron) January 26, 2022 ALL the latest Raiders...
    Students in Los Angeles Unified School District will now be prohibited from wearing cloth masks, according to an announcement distributed Saturday by the district. Starting Monday, students must wear “well-fitted, non-cloth masks with a nose wire” at all times, including outdoors. District officials said surgical masks or higher-grade masks were acceptable, and that such masks would be available to students upon request. “Our in-school [coronavirus infection] rates have dropped but we are continuing to be diligent and agile in creating the safest learning environment,” said Shannon Haber, a spokesperson for LAUSD. The shift away from cloth masks was prompted by guidance from L.A. County health authorities, Haber said. LAUSD does allow exemptions to mask rules for some students who have a disability, medical or mental health condition that makes them unable to comply. “If students have mask exemptions, this does not apply to them. Otherwise, it applies to all students,” said Dr. Smita Malhotra, LAUSD’s medical director, regarding the prohibition on cloth masks. Health officials in L.A. and across the state have increasingly urged the public to...
    COVID deaths in England are peaking and will soon start to drop, top government advisers claim. Projections from the SPI-M modelling group, shown to ministers last week, estimated deaths would peak around January 16 before falling again. 3Projections from SPI-M, shown to ministers last week, suggested Covid deaths in England would peak around January 16Credit: Government Office for Science The group said deaths would likely top out at around 250 per day. England’s current average is 231 per day and the figure fell on Wednesday after stalling between 230 and 240 for the past week. Health Secretary Sajid Javid said at a Downing Street press conference last night that the Covid death count is “a lot, lot lower than it's been before”. At the peak of last winter’s wave an average 1,135 deaths were reported every day – five times higher than the current figure. Members of the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (Sage) said jabs and the milder Omicron variant have slashed fatalities. They agreed in a meeting last week: “The increase in hospitalisations, which is anticipated following the...

    With every passing year, our understanding of how dementia affects people and how we can treat it gets better and better. Unfortunately, every new year brings us closer to a crisis: According to a new study published Thursday in The Lancet, dementia rates around the world are expected to triple by the year 2050—affecting 153 million people, up from 57 million in 2019. This comprehensive new forecast—which predicted prevalence rates for 195 countries—is an urgent warning for the world to address dementia’s biggest risk factors now rather than later, as well as for countries that will be hit hardest to begin making preparations to provide long term care and treatment options for elderly populations over the next three decades. “Dementia has a large impact on health systems, and service and support for end of life care,” Emma Nichols, public health researcher at the University of Washington and lead author of the new study, told The Daily Beast. “As the number of people with dementia increases, the availability of health services will need to increase to keep pace with anticipated demand.”...
    With the highly infectious Omicron variant spreading rapidly across California, health officials are increasingly urging — and, in some cases, requiring — residents and workers to use higher-quality face masks to give themselves an extra layer of protection. Employers in Los Angeles County will be required to provide well-fitting medical-grade masks, surgical masks or respirators, such as N95s or KN95s, to employees who work indoors in close contact with others, county officials announced this week. Employers must make these accommodations as soon as possible, but no later than Jan. 17, officials said. California California extends indoor mask mandate as Omicron surges California will extend its statewide mask mandate for indoor public spaces for another month as an unprecedented wave of coronavirus infections continues to wash over the state. The county’s latest revised health order also specifies that patrons of card rooms must always wear masks while indoors — unless they’re actively eating or drinking in a designated dining area. “Given the explosive spread of the virus, activities that put us in close contact with many...
    It's a common yet curious tale: a household hit by Covid, but one family member never tests positive or gets so much as a sniffle.  Meanwhile there are those who have had Covid and been double-jabbed and boosted, yet still pick up the virus again. As infections continue to soar in the new Omicron wave – an astonishing one in 25 people in England have Covid, according to Office for National Statistics data – cases of people who managed to stay free of the infection become ever more remarkable. Is it sheer luck? Some kind of superpower? Now scientists may have an answer: there is mounting evidence that some people are naturally Covid-resistant. For reasons not fully understood, it's thought that these people were already immune to the Covid virus, and they remain so even as it mutates.  The phenomenon is now the subject of intense research across the world.  Nasim Forooghi (pictured), 46, a cardiac research nurse at St Bartholomew's Hospital in Central London, has been potentially exposed to hundreds of people infected with Covid since the start of...
    BERLIN (AP) — Germany’s health minister said Thursday that he expects a surge in coronavirus cases around New Year’s snd people will likely need a fourth vaccine shot to maintain the best immune response against COVID-19. Health Minister Karl Lauterbach told public radio network WDR 2 that Germany hasn’t yet seen a big, rapid wave of new infections from the omicron variant like some other European countries. “That will change around New Year and in the first week of January,” Lauterbach said. The government is urging Germans to limit their contacts over the holiday period and to get vaccinated, including with booster shots if they’ve already had their initial vaccines. . Official figures show 70.7% of the population have received a full course of vaccine, while 35% have had boosters. Demonstrations against new pandemic restrictions and a planned vaccine mandate have flared up in Germany over the past weeks. Police said about 5,000 protesters gathered in the center of Munich late Wednesday, with some participants attacking officers. Eleven people were detained. ___ Follow AP’s coverage of the coronavirus...
    EXPERTS are warning that not all face coverings will protect you against the super infectious Omicron Covid variant. Masks are one of many crucial interventions that can stop you from picking up the virus from people around you. 1Face coverings come in many variationsCredit: AFP They are once again mandatory across many indoor settings in the UK in the face of Omicron. But, amid concerns about staggeringly high case rates moving into Christmas, some say the standard face covering is not enough. Trish Greenhalgh, Professor of Primary Care Health Services, University of Oxford, said:  “Masks that do not cover the nose and mouth with a snug seal will not provide adequate protection against Omicron.” Cloth face coverings - the type that are washable - do not have a seal around the nose that eliminate any risk of particles getting to the nostrils or mouth. Prof Greenhalgh told The Sun: “Omicron is really contagious so you can catch it more easily - hence need to be doubly sure you have a high filtration mask and that it fits well.  “The bendy...
