Steve Bannon asked to be paid back for legal fees from the Russia investigation. The decision fell to the Biden-led Justice Department, which denied the request. "It is our understanding that the White House supports reimbursing Mr. Bannon's attorneys' fees," Bannon's defense lawyer William Burck wrote on New Year's Eve to the Justice Department. Trump's Justice Department never acted on Bannon's bid for the reimbursement of his legal fees.

Doctors in India say COVID-19 patients have unusual symptoms that could be due to the Delta variant. Doctors in India claim that the highly infectious Delta variant could cause unusual symptoms such as gangrene and hearing loss, which they say are becoming more common in COVID-19 patients of all ages. The highly infectious variant has spread to 67 countries and is becoming more common around the world. The Delta variant is estimated to be 60% more infectious than the Alpha variant that's currently the most common in the US. A Public Health England document from May reported the Pfizer and AstraZeneca vaccines were respectively 88% and 60% effective against the Delta variant after both doses.

In 2014, Deondre Moore, who was 19 at the time, decided to get an HIV test while he and his friends were at a nightclub in Houston. Moore, I'm sorry to tell you, but our test confirmed that you do have HIV,’” he recalled. Stigma surrounding HIV is persistent, and the virus disproportionately affects gay and bisexual men of color, particularly Black men, due to inequality in a variety of areas. Misinformation and stigma persist in part because of poor sex education across the country, said J. Maurice McCants-Pearsall, director of HIV and health equity at Human Rights Campaign. Among the most common is that HIV is a death sentence, and it is not, McCants-Pearsall said.

But the opposite isn't true: Even if the virus didn't undergo any laboratory manipulation, that wouldn't rule out a lab escape. However, the people who do think the coronavirus might have been engineered focus on a few particular areas of its genome. One of those labs, he said, is the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), where researchers studied bat coronaviruses before the pandemic.

He says in order to make vaccine passports a reality in the US, we need to tackle three key points. As countries reopen their borders, many governments are considering requiring travelers to have COVID-19 vaccine passports. It starts with modernizing vaccine records — an issue that's been called out by experts long before COVID-19-related challenges. Here's what would need to happen if we wanted to create a safe, organized, and technology-driven system that crosses state lines. Create a simple and secure digital recordWith a federal standard in hand, states would be better-equipped to build and manage digital vaccine records.

Dr. Peter Hotez warned that Southern U.S. states could feel the impact of the highly transmissible Delta Covid variant as early as this summer, due in part to low vaccination rates. And less than 10% of adolescents are vaccinated in many of these southern states, so we have a real vulnerability here," Hotez said. A new study in the U.K. found Pfizer's vaccine is 88% effective against the Delta variant, which was first discovered in India. On Tuesday, White House chief medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci, stressed the importance of vaccines to protect against the Delta variant, which he said accounts for more than 6% of the U.S. coronavirus infections that scientists have genetically sequenced. "I'm pretty convinced that the possibility of severe Covid-19 from this new Delta variant is a far bigger concern, so I'm strongly recommending for adolescents to get their two doses of the vaccine," Hotez said.

Here's what we're talking about:One thing to watch for: President Joe Biden speaks about the coronavirus pandemic at 1:15 p.m. RAISING THE ARIZONA QUESTION: Pressure is increasing on the Department of Justice to intervene in the GOP-led Arizona election audit. Woods said he had reached out to the DOJ to encourage it to deploy people to Arizona who could more closely monitor the audit. But it's unlikely that Arizona will be the end of this: Lawmakers from several states, including Georgia, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Colorado, have traveled to Arizona to observe the audit. This latest development comes on the heels of the Biden administration promising 80 million vaccine doses to be exported in conjunction with the World Health Organization's COVAX effort.

LONDON — The rise of the Covid-19 delta variant in the U.K. has sparked fears of a new wave of the virus and could endanger plans for a full reopening of society later this month, despite one of the world's most successful vaccination campaigns. Recorded cases are nearing levels reached in March this year, with between 4,000 and 6,000 cases a day over the last 10 days. However, senior politicians have warned that the government is carefully watching the increasing number of cases and that date could be missed. In the U.S., the delta variant currently accounts for more than 6 percent of sequenced cases, Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said in a press briefing on Tuesday. Speaking of the way the delta variant had become dominant in the U.K., Fauci said: "We cannot let that happen in the United States, which is such a powerful argument... to get vaccinated.

Anthony Fauci, the government’s top infectious-disease authority, said he never played down the possibility that the SARS-CoV-2 virus could have been leaked from a lab in China, calling accusations he did so for political reasons “preposterous.”Speaking at The Wall Street Journal’s Tech Health event, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said that when scientists who had studied the virus floated the idea in February 2020 that it could have been “manipulated,” he quickly gathered a group of scientists together. After further examination, he said, the scientists reached the conclusion that the most likely scenario was that the virus that causes Covid-19 had jumped from animals to humans. He said he remains open-minded about the origin of the virus. “Until you nail it down definitively, you always have to keep an open mind that it might be something else,” Dr. Fauci said. “And that’s the way I have always been from the very beginning, I have not changed my mind.”Dr. Fauci was informed as early as February 2020 that Covid-19 exhibited unusual viral characteristics that suggested it could have potentially been engineered in a lab, according to emails recently obtained by the Washington Post and BuzzFeed.

People wearing face masks walk on a street market, following an outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Wuhan, Hubei province, China February 8, 2021. The mine is in Mojiang in southwest China, about 1,500 kilometres from Wuhan, where COVID-19 was first identified. According to the Wuhan Institute of Virology's Shi Zhengli, China's top bat coronavirus researcher, the workers' pneumonia-like symptoms were caused by a fungal infection. From 2012 to 2015, WIV researchers identified as many as 293 coronaviruses in and around the mine. The institute in November 2020 disclosed the existence of eight other "SARS-type" coronavirus samples taken from the site.

The coronavirus is receding in much of the United States, but spreading in communities with low vaccination rates, where contagious variants pose a new threat. However, fortunately, two doses of the Pfizer vaccine and AstraZeneca appear to be effective against the Delta variant. The Delta variant currently accounts for more than 6 percent of the sequenced cases in the United States. A spring surge that scientists had warned of largely failed to materialize in the United States. “We cannot let that happen in the United States,” Dr. Fauci said, adding that the Delta variant now accounted for 6 percent of sequenced cases in the United States.

Dr. Fauci said Tuesday that the highly infectious Delta variant, first found in India, could take over in the US. Fauci said getting two doses of COVID-19 vaccine would stop the Delta variant from spreading. Dr. Anthony Fauci, President Joe Biden's chief medical advisor, said Tuesday that in the UK, the Delta variant had rapidly emerged as the dominant variant, replacing the Alpha variant. The Delta variant accounts for more than 6% of sequenced tests in the US and 60% of infections in the UK, Fauci said. The Delta variant is at least as infectious as the Alpha variant, and has now spread to more than 60 countries.

Dr. Scott Gottlieb told CNBC on Wednesday he believes enough Americans are fully vaccinated to delay the risk presented by the Delta Covid variant. The most severe cases involving the Delta variant appear to be in unvaccinated people or those who are only partially vaccinated, Gottlieb noted. On Tuesday, White House chief medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci stressed the importance of Americans becoming fully vaccinated to protect against the Delta variant. The Delta variant, meanwhile, is becoming the dominant variant in the United Kingdom. Despite vaccination progress in the U.S., Gottlieb acknowledged there could be worrisome situations in the country involving the Delta variant.

"It is increasingly concerning that this pandemic will be driven by the cycle of occurrence and reoccurrence of different variants," Nkengasong said at The Wall Street Journal's Health Tech conference. Top health officials in Europe and Africa said Wednesday they are worried about the potential emergence of new Covid variants that could render current vaccines useless. "So, given that level of transmissibility, I would anticipate that (the Delta variant) would've actually spread around the world," she said at the conference. Peacock added the Delta variant is already present in most U.S. states, but the spread is at an early stage. White House senior medical advisor, Dr. Anthony Fauci told reporters yesterday that the U.S. needs to vaccinate more people before the Delta variant takes hold in the country.

Dr. Anthony Fauci on Wednesday lashed out at critics calling for his ouster, blasting their "preposterous" and "painfully ridiculous" attacks and defending his record as a leading official battling the coronavirus pandemic. "Attacks on me, quite frankly, are attacks on science," Fauci said in an interview with MSNBC's Chuck Todd. "If you go through each and every one of them, you can explain and debunk it immediately," Fauci said. "I haven't changed my mind," Fauci said, adding he still feels "the same way" about the lab-leak theory that he did previously. I believe it's a highly unlikely possibility, and I believe that the most important one, that you look at what scientists feel, is very likely that it was a natural origin," Fauci said.

The sheer number of emails that Fauci receives and responds to in a day is a feat. In an email to a friend in late March 2020, Fauci wrote that he was getting more than 2,000 emails a day. "I am the type of person, I get asked a lot of questions that are medical questions [from] people who need help," Fauci, 80, said. With his role as a medical professional and in the middle of a pandemic, Fauci said he can't just delete his emails. Fauci occasionally responds to emails into the early morning, at around 1 or 2 a.m. (In the early days of the pandemic, Fauci said he was only sleeping four hours each night.)

The Power of Natural Immunity
  + stars: | 2021-06-08 | by ( Marty Makary | ) + 0.72   time to read: +2 min
Some 80% to 85% of American adults are immune to the virus: More than 64% have received at least one vaccine dose and, of those who haven’t, roughly half have natural immunity from prior infection. There’s ample scientific evidence that natural immunity is effective and durable, and public-health leaders should pay it heed. The contribution of natural immunity should speed up the timeline for returning fully to normal. Without accounting for natural immunity, we are far from Anthony Fauci’s stated target of 70% to 85% of the population becoming immune through full vaccination. But the effect of natural immunity is all around us.

Five flight attendants told Insider they are looking forward to travel rebounding this summer. "I just had back-to-back layovers in Hawaii and, you know, crew members are not exempt from quarantine," the flight attendant said. Policing passengers over mask policies had made passengers more aggressive during the pandemic, flight attendants recently told Insider. The Association of Flight Attendants union expects the number of flight attendant jobs to climb from 80,000 in June to 100,000 by 2023, Insider's Kate Duffy reported. One Chicago-based flight attendant told Insider she got laid off for four months during the winter, and came back on board in March.
