    WHEN little Marley Shaw started to limp, her parents thought she might have damaged her knee. The family took their two-year-old daughter to hospital where medics conducted blood tests. 1Little Marley Shaw had been complaining that she had a sore leg, so her parents took her to hospital to find the causeCredit: BPM To their horror, doctors told the family that their little girl's sore leg had actually been down to leukaemia. Leukaemia is a type of blood cancer that affects cells in bone marrow and attacks the immune system. In most cases of leukaemia, there is no obvious cause. It is a cancer that leads to the body making too many abnormal white blood cells and means the body is less likely to be able to defend itself against infection. Marley, who lives in Uttoxeter with parents Callum Shaw and Charley Straughton is now undergoing treatment for cancer. The family were given the news just before Christmas, with Marley starting her treatment at Royal Derby Hospital on December 23.

    CHERNIHIV, Ukraine—For years, Ukraine has been dealing with Russian aggression and preparing for an invasion on its Eastern flank where the two nations share more than 1,000 miles of sometimes disputed borders. But the recent bromance between President Vladimir Putin and his Belarusian counterpart has opened up the terrifying possibility of a new line of attack. The southern border of Belarus is less than a three-hour drive from Kyiv, Ukraine’s economic and political capital. Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko has always had a testy relationship with Putin, until Moscow rescued him from an attempted popular revolution last year. By way of repayment, Lukashenko has signed up for the closest integration between the two countries since the collapse of the Soviet Union. “Russian tanks can be here in less than an hour.” Ukraine already believes the hackers behind a massive cyberattack launched this month were linked to Belarus intelligence acting on behalf of Moscow. The cooperation got even closer on Wednesday when Russian troops landed in Belarus to hold joint anti-Ukraine military exercises close to the southern border. Kyiv is now effectively...

    Whenever someone tells Jamie Chong that COVID-19 isn’t a serious threat to children, she reminds them that the common cold can send her child to the hospital. Her son, Asher, who is nearing his third birthday, has cerebral palsy and issues with his respiratory and gastrointestinal systems, putting him at higher risk from the coronavirus. Chong has been caring for him in their Simi Valley home during the pandemic and strictly limiting who can enter. Sometimes, when cases have surged, she has even decided to turn away his home nurses. “It’s scarier than it was even in the beginning,” Chong said. “When things were really bad before, kids weren’t going to school. People were working from home. Now they’re saying it’s way more contagious — and everything is open.” There’s the notion that “‘If you’re vulnerable, then you need to stay home.’ Well, we are doing that. But how much longer can we?” Chong asked. “My son deserves to live a life outside of his home.” Young children — those younger than 5 — are being newly hospitalized with COVID-19...

    An Army veteran turned prison guard was offered the chance to rejoin the military to avoid being jailed for sexual assault by a Kentucky judge, though Army regulations would likely stop him from ever returning to the Armed Forces.  Brandon Scott Price, 28, was convicted of sex assault on a female inmate at the Franklin County Regional Jail.  Price pleaded down a charge of sodomy to second-degree assault and was sentenced to 12 months in jail, suspended for two years.  However, Judge Thomas Wingate told Price that he could stay out of jail if he re-enlisted in the Army within 30 days of his sentencing.     'If you don't enroll in 30 days, you can report to the Franklin County Regional Jail,' Wingate said. 'You are under the gun, young man. You gotta do it.' Judge Thomas D.

    OMICRON has triggered a rise in babies being admitted to hospital with Covid – but most only get a fever and a runny nose. Data shows 42 per cent of child Covid patients are now younger than one, up from 31 per cent in waves of earlier variants. 2Sage advisers say Omicron has led to a rise in babies being admitted to hospital with Covid, but most of them aCredit: Getty - Contributor But top doctors on the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (Sage) say the tots are not getting sick and most are admitted as a precaution. A Sage report revealed babies younger than one have made up a majority of childhood admissions since December. But there have only been 171 of them, with a study finding just one out of 55 needed intensive care because of a high fever. It is in line with a string of hugely positive studies which found Omicron is milder than other strains in the vaccinated - with the first official UK report revealing the risk of hospitalisation is 50 to 70 per cent lower than...
    The Massachusetts Water Resource Authority publishes their COVID mRNA screening from the Deer Island Treatment Plant. It's considered a leading indicator of COVID hospitalization and has clearly spiked. David Leonhardt/NY Times: Is Omicron Peaking? In parts of the Northeast, it seems to be. Ali Mokdad, a professor of health metrics sciences at the University of Washington in Seattle, told the The Associated Press that he believed the true number of U.S. cases — including those not included in any official tally — has already peaked, probably last week. “It’s going to come down as fast as it went up,” he predicted. To be clear, the current emergency is not on the verge of ending. Cases appear to be peaking only in places where Omicron arrived early, mostly in the Northeast. In much of the country, cases are still soaring. Already, some hospitals are swamped, and hospitalization trends often trail caseload trends by about a week. Deaths trends tend to lag by another couple of weeks. “It’s going to be a tough two or three weeks,” Mokdad said. The U.S. seems on course for...

    LOUISVILLE, Colo. (CBS4) – Just weeks after the Centura-Avista Adventist Hospital came within feet of possibly catching fire during the Marshall Fire, staff are hard at work to prepare the facility to reopen to patients. The hospital, which is surrounded by devastated neighborhoods, somehow survived the historic blaze without any structural damage. (credit: Avista Adventist Hospital) Dozens of patients had to be evacuated to sister hospitals the night the Marshall Fire erupted. Hospital CEO Isaac Sendros said the evacuation was something the staff had prepared for, yet never expected to execute. “A full evacuation? No, that is not something you look forward to doing,” Sendros said. “As you can imagine it was a stressful moment. But, we have been running drills for this.” Heroic staff members inside the hospital worked to get patients loaded into ambulances and rushed to neighboring hospitals. All the while the flames were creeping closer and closer to the hospital, at one point becoming a threat of a possible explosion. (credit: CBS) “The oxygen tanks were a big concern. We actually had to evacuate patients that...

    One surefire way to garner some extreme MAGA-cred nowadays is to get COVID-19, lie about it and say you just have pneumonia, and remain unrepentant as an avowed anti-vaxxer. But there’s at least one MAGA diehard—an associate of Donald Trump’s former chief strategist Steve Bannon—who has taken things a step further. His name is Ben Bergquam, and he has recently been vlogging from his hospital bed—after being admitted for contracting the coronavirus. Bergquam has talked about how thrilled he is that he never got the COVID vaccine, and has—naturally—made sure to brag to his viewers about how in-shape he is. Anyway, he ended up on oxygen, and has vlogged from the COVID ward about how much trouble he’s had breathing in the middle of the night. “He’s recording videos from his hospital bed about like, ‘I'm so glad I didn't get the vaccine,’” Fever Dreams co-host Will Sommer recounted to co-host Asawin Suebsaeng on this week’s episode of The Daily Beast’s Fever Dreams podcast. “He’s got the oxygen tube in his nose, and he’s saying, ‘Oh, you just gotta stay...

    SEEING the British public respond and come forward in their millions for their Covid-19 vaccines and boosters has filled me with hope. I wish this pandemic was over now, but I am a realist. Things are better than back in 2020 — far better — the end is in sight, but we are not quite there yet. 3Vaccines are safe, they work and they are the way out of the pandemic and back to normalityCredit: AFP 3The end is in sight, but we are not quite there yet, writes Prof Van-Tam Omicron is a really frustrating and unwelcome turn in this pandemic. It is by far the most infectious variant to emerge and has resulted in record numbers of cases in the UK — they really are extraordinarily high. It is still a bit touch and go on hospital admissions and will be for a few more weeks — but there’s no doubt we are in a much stronger place than in 2020 and early 2021 as we have an excellent vaccine programme.

    SACRAMENTO (AP) — Hospitals around the U.S. are increasingly taking the extraordinary step of allowing nurses and other workers infected with the coronavirus to stay on the job if they have mild symptoms or none at all.

    Yes, going to the hospital is scary, COVID or otherwise! So jab to lessen the chances. This series documents stories from the Herman Cain Awards subreddit. tracking the COVID mis- and disinformation on Facebook that is leading to so many deaths. Today’s cautionary tale should’ve taken COVID more seriously, and been less afraid of the hospital when she got it. How about accept “follow the science” from the medical and scientific communities that work in the field of infectious diseases and develop drugs, vaccines, and treatments to combat deadly pathogens? Maybe listen to those? In other words, she can’t respect Donald Trump?  Something must’ve happened in her life to make her feel aggrieved, with all this talk of ADMIT IT YOU’RE WRONG. But of course, it has particular poignancy given the FUD she was believing and spreading.  Aside from the obvious global undercounting of COVID deaths, yes, people die of things all the time. We are, indeed, mortal creatures. And many of us engage in dangerous or risky behavior. Many more live in parts of the world without adequate sanitation,...

    A Canadian politician is being mocked and criticized after sharing a photo of his first-responder wife shoveling snow after her 12-hour shift at the hospital. Jon Reyes, the Minister of Economic Development and Jobs in Manitoba and a member of the province's Progressive Conservative Party, tweeted a photo of his wife Cynthia shoveling their driveway after a heavy snow on January 8 — which he has snapped from inside, looking out the window. 'Even after a 12 hour night shift at the hospital last night, my wife still has the energy to shovel the driveway. God bless her and all our frontliners. Time to make her some breakfast,' he wrote. But while Reyes seemed to intend the tweet to show awed praise of his nurse wife's stamina, tens of thousands of Twitter users have had other ideas and are calling him out for being 'lazy' and the 'worst' husband for not shoveling himself — or at least hiring someone to do it.

    Under pressure from Governor Kathy Hochul, hospitals in New York have disclosed that nearly half of their so-called COVID-19 patients currently hospitalized were admitted for other reasons. Of the roughly 11,500 COVID-19 patients currently hospitalized in the state, COVID was not included as one of the reasons for admission for 43 percent, according to data Hochul released on Friday. In New York City, the rate was even higher, with 51 percent of current COVID patients classified as 'with' COVID, as opposed to 'for' the virus. In patients 'with' COVID, they were hospitalized for unrelated reasons, such as injuries in a car crash, but tested positive for the virus on the routine screening administered to all new patients and were subsequently reclassified as COVID admissions.

    The number of New Yorkers in the hospital with Covid-19 is surging, but fewer of them are ending up in intensive care compared with prior waves — a sign that vaccines and the potentially milder omicron variant are making people less sick. About 5,900 patients are hospitalized with Covid-19 across New York City, 52% higher than last winter's peak of nearly 3,900 reached on Feb. 8, state data through Wednesday shows. The 666 patients currently in ICUs with Covid, however, remains below last winter's high mark of 773. New York, where cases have been surging to record levels for weeks, has emerged as the epicenter of the country's omicron wave. Survival rates there are being closely watched as a potential indication of what may happen around the country as the variant, which is now the dominant strain nationwide, takes further hold in other places. Dr. Adel Bassily-Marcus, an ICU specialist at Mt. Sinai hospital in Manhattan, said that his unit is operating "close to normal" even as the number of patients testing positive for the virus has significantly risen over...

    Health officials in D.C. are continuing to ask the public to not visit the hospital if they need a COVID-19 test or if they have mild symptoms. It’s adding stress onto a health system that’s starting to see an uptick in capacity. “We’re seeing a lot of individuals that present to the ER, simply not knowing what to do if they get COVID,” said Patrick Ashley, a senior deputy at DC Health.

"It was quite hard to breathe and every time I tried to breathe in I'd feel a pinching sensation around my heart, and that, of course, made my anxiety escalate."

    The longest-running soap opera just killed off one of its longest-running characters in a shocking twist during Monday’s episode.  "General Hospital" opened the New Year with characters learning of the shocking accidental death of Luke Spencer. Played by actor Anthony Geary, Spencer first made his way to Port Charles roughly 44 years ago. Since then, he has become one of the most beloved and decorated cast members on the show.  According to The Wrap, the soap opera brought back Tracy Quartermaine (played by actress Jane Elliott, to deliver the news to his on-again-off-again flame, Francis' Laura Webber (Genie Francis). Tracy showed up at Laura’s door after midnight to inform her that Luke had been killed in a tragic cable car accident in Austria. However, in true soap opera fashion, it was later implied in the episode that Victor Cassadine (Charles Shaughnessy) may have orchestrated the "accident" that led to the demise of Spencer.  FORMER 'GENERAL HOSPITAL' ACTOR INGO RADEMACHER SUES ABC OVER VACCINE MANDATE Actor Anthony Geary's character on "General Hospital" was killed off-screen.

    A woman with a 'very dangerous' brain tumor broke down in tears as she revealed she cannot get surgery to remove it despite doctors saying she needs the procedure ASAP — because the hospital is full of COVID patients. Amanda Harris, from Portland Oregon, found out she had a brain tumor in October 2021, and was told by her neurologist that she needed to get it surgically removed as soon as possible or it could cause 'irreparable harm' to her brain. Her doctors are not sure if the tumor is cancerous or not, but because it is 'pressed up against her brain stem' it needs to be taken out immediately.  Unfortunately, Amanda said she is not able to undergo the lifesaving procedure since there are no more beds left in the ICU due to all of the people who are suffering from COVID-19.  A woman with a brain tumor revealed she can't get surgery to remove it despite doctors saying she needs the procedure ASAP - because the hospital if full of anti-vax COVID patients Amanda Harris, from Portland Oregon,...
    Philadelphia police apprehended the two suspects shortly after the incident and rushed both to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center. At least one of the suspects has been listed as in critical condition. The Lyft driver was not injured during the incident.

    Fewer Covid patients in hospital are relying on ventilation compared to previous peaks during the pandemic, it has been revealed.   In a further sign that the Omicron variant is less severe than other strains of coronavirus, figures from London hospitals suggest a lower rate of mechanical intervention is needed among recent patients. Yesterday, there were 3,744 patients in London's hospitals with Covid compared to around 1,000 at the end of November. Yet despite this, the number of mechanical ventilation beds in use increased from 175 to just 230. This equates to around six per cent of people in hospital who require help to breathe - a significant drop compared to around 20 per cent during the summer.   While Covid admission in London hospitals have more than tripled since November, numbers in ventilation beds rose from just 175 to 230 London has fast become the UK’s Omicron hotspot, with one in 20 people testing positive in the week leading up to Christmas. Paul Hunter, professor of medicine at the University of East Anglia, said the reduced need for ventilation is a...
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The NYPD officer shot while sleeping in his car outside a Harlem precinct was released from a hospital on Sunday. The veteran officer left New York-Presbyterian on the East Side in the afternoon. He was off duty and sleeping in his personal car outside of the 25th Precinct in East Harlem between double shifts when a bullet fired from a distance struck him in the head. The officer’s name still hasn’t been released, but CBS2 has learned he is a military veteran and a father. “I think he reaches upon his skills as a previous Marine serving his country. He’s been an outstanding officer for the 25 and the residents of upper East Harlem,” the wounded officer’s commanding officer said. Investigators do not believe the officer was the intended target. CBS2 was told he underwent successful surgery to remove bull fragments from his head.
