    While domestic COVID-19 restrictions will almost entirely disappear on Feb. 1, there will still likely be some protocols for international travelers. "Denmark intends however to keep some border measures in place for another four weeks, including tests and/or quarantine depending on travelers' immunity status," the Daily Mail reported. "According to Health Minister Magnus Heunicke, Denmark's recent cases of COVID were more than 46,000 daily on average; however, only 40 people are in hospital intensive care units," according to Newsweek. "We continue with a strong epidemic surveillance," Heunicke declared. "Then we ... can react quickly if necessary."

    MENDON, Mass. (AP) — A Boston hospital is defending itself after a man’s family claimed he was denied a new heart for refusing to be vaccinated against COVID-19, saying most transplant programs around the country set similar requirements to improve patients’ chances of survival. The family of D.J. Ferguson said in a crowdfunding appeal this week that officials at Brigham and Women’s Hospital told the 31-year-old father of two that he was ineligible for the procedure because he hasn’t been vaccinated against the coronavirus. “We are literally in a corner right now. This is extremely time sensitive,” the family said in its fundraising appeal, which has raised tens of thousands of dollars. “This is not just a political issue. People need to have a choice!” D.J.’s mother, Tracey Ferguson, insists that her son isn’t against vaccinations, noting he’s had other immunizations in the past. But the trained nurse said Wednesday that he’s been diagnosed with atrial fibrillation — an irregular and often rapid heart rhythm — and that he has concerns about the side effects of the COVID-19 vaccine. “D.J....

    BOSTON (CBS) — Big man Aron Baynes was a fan favorite during his two seasons with the Celtics, bringing a lot of grit to the paint for Boston. Since his departure, Boston fans are always trying to figure out a way to get Baynes back to the C’s. Since he was traded by the Celtics two years ago, there was usually a small “Bring Back Baynes” movement around the trade deadline. But that will not be happening this year, as Baynes is still working his way back from a mysterious injury that he suffered during the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. While playing for the Australian team, Baynes was left temporarily paralyzed following a series of falls. It was a terrifying ordeal that Baynes discussed with ESPN’s Brian Windhorst.

But then Chiefs fans changed their plans, inspired by the past charitable giving of the Buffalo Bills fan base, known colloquially as the "Bills Mafia." Last November, after discovering that Josh Allen had played a game after just losing his grandmother, scores of Bills fans stepped up...
    LAUDERHILL, Fla. — Two South Florida sheriff's deputies were injured during a chase involving a reckless driver, officials said. The Broward Sheriff’s deputies were checking out a report of a reckless driver around 11 p.m. on Tuesday. A deputy, who was on foot, spotted the car and tried to get the driver to stop. However, the driver hit the deputy, officials said in a statement. Another deputy began pursuing the vehicle, resulting in a crash that involved "several vehicles," the statement said. The driver who fled attempted to run, but he was caught by deputies and Lauderhill police officers. Both deputies — the one who was initially hit by the car and the one who was involved in the car crash — were taken to the hospital. Their injuries were not considered life-threatening, officials said. The fleeing driver was also taken to the hospital, officials said. An investigation is continuing.

Stoner told lawmakers Tuesday that threats over his public health decisions led him to install a security system at his home — and said his child was harassed at school because of his role as health officer. “The level of harassment and intimidation from some, obviously not all, but some members of the public during this pandemic has really been unprecedented,” Stoner told members of the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday. Stoner was testifying in favor of House Bill 267, introduced by Del. Karen Lewis Young (D-Frederick), which would ban threats against public health officials and hospital workers who care for patients. The bill would make threats against those hospital workers and public health officials punishable by up to 90 days imprisonment and a $500 maximum fine. Threatening an elected official is a misdemeanor punishable by up to three years in prison or a fine of up to $2,500 or both, but civil...

    UVA denying me a kidney transplant because i refuse to get the vaxx youtu.be "I just had COVID, so I don't — so why would I get the vaccine?" Connors claimed on the phone, but Warburton didn't budge. "You may have had Delta, and that may not protect you against the Omicron variant, which is what we're seeing now," the doctor explained. "So, our policy is that in order to have people active on the transplant list and get a transplant, you need to be fully vaccinated." At one point, Connors claimed that he would "rather die of kidney failure" than get the vaccine. Warburton assessed that it "may be a crossroads" for Connors as the two briefly debated the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines. Connors later told Fox News that he had been active on the transplant list after starting dialysis about two years before. He added that he is not opposed to vaccines, in general, but is wary of the COVID-19 vaccines and their side effects, in particular.What else?Connors is the latest in...

    KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — Former Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad is recovering after being hospitalized for the third time since December and is eager to get back on his feet, his daughter said Wednesday. The 96-year-old two-time former premier, once the world’s oldest leader, was admitted to the coronary care unit at the National Heart Institute on Jan. 20. He underwent an elective medical procedure at the same hospital on Jan. 7. Last month, he was admitted for a full medical checkup and observation. Marina Mahathir said in a statement that her father “is cheerful and eager to fully recover.'” He was transferred out of the coronary care unit earlier Tuesday to a normal ward, but isn’t allowed to receive visitors apart from family members, she said. Mahathir has had two coronary bypass surgeries but was still robust and sharp witted. He led the opposition to a historic election victory in 2018 that ousted a corruption-tainted government in the first peaceful transfer of power since Malaysia’s independence in 1957. Mahathir became the world’s oldest leader at 92 for a...
