Around one-third of parents said that "benefits of gathering with family at Thanksgiving are worth the risk of spreading or getting COVID-19," according to a report from CS Mott Children's Hospital at Michigan Medicine. Experts have warned the US is in a massive third surge of coronavirus cases, and the US recorded a total of over 12 million confirmed cases of coronavirus, according to Johns Hopkins University. Amid the alarming number of new daily cases of coronavirus across the country, the CDC warned Americans against traveling during the Thanksgiving holidays. For one in three parents, the risk of coronavirus does not weigh down the benefits of a family gathering at Thanksgiving, according to a poll. The US has recorded a total of over 12 million confirmed cases of coronavirus, according to Johns Hopkins University.

More than three million people travelled through US airports this weekend in advance of Thanksgiving, defying advice from the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Friday through Sunday was the busiest weekend for air travel in the US the since COVID-19 began to spread in March. The US is still the worst-affected country in the world, with the highest number of coronavirus cases and deaths. Millions of people flew across the US over the weekend weekend in advance of Thanksgiving, defying advice from the US Centers for Disease Control for people to stay home for the holiday to stop the spread of the coronavirus. The CDC recommended last Thursday that Americans don't travel for Thanksgiving, which falls on November 26, the Thursday of this week.

How Bill Gates is spending Thanksgiving safely during the pandemic

This week, many Americans are grappling with how to alter Thanksgiving celebrations in order to stay safe during the Covid-19 pandemic, including Bill Gates. Gates said he's setting up "a video connection with a lot of the family members on Thanksgiving Day, but [will] not be with them to have turkey together," he said. (Gates has also been hosting virtual "visits with friends where we drink wine" throughout the pandemic, he said on his new podcast, "Bill Gates and Rashida Jones Ask Big Questions.") Gates also emphasized the importance of wearing masks over the holidays, and cited projections that show increased mask wearing could save over 50,000 lives. Face masks prevent the spread of respiratory droplets from an infected person, as well as provide a degree of protection for the wearer.

(Reuters) - Millions of Americans appear to be defying health warnings and traveling ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday, likely exacerbating a surge in coronavirus infections before a series of promising new vaccines become widely available. For Americans, the long holiday weekend, which begins on Thursday, is traditionally the busiest travel period of the year, and 2020 may prove to be no exception. (Graphic: tmsnrt.rs/34pvUyi)That has further taxed already exhausted medical professionals, as coronavirus hospitalizations have surged nearly 50% over the past two weeks and the United States has surpassed 255,000 deaths and 12 million infections since the pandemic began. “NOT LIVING IN FEAR”Still, many Americans are refusing to follow the health advice that could save their lives. “We are not living in fear and if we were able to get together on Thanksgiving Day we absolutely would,” said Lafferty, 47.

LONDON — The coronavirus vaccine being developed by AstraZeneca and the University of Oxford was found to be "highly" protective on Monday, potentially paving the way for a vaccine that is both more affordable and easier to distribute than some of its peers. An interim analysis of clinical trials showed the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine had an average efficacy of 70% in protecting against the virus. Both Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna reported preliminary results last week showing that their respective Covid vaccines were around 95% effective. However, White House coronavirus advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci has previously said a vaccine that is 50% or 60% effective against the virus would be acceptable. It is hoped a Covid vaccine could help to bring an end to the coronavirus pandemic that has claimed more than 1.3 million lives worldwide.

(Reuters) - The first Americans could receive a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as Dec. 11, the chief scientific adviser for the U.S. government’s vaccine program said on Sunday. The vaccine, which requires two doses administered about three weeks apart, has been shown to be 95% effective with no major safety concerns. The United States faces the challenge of distributing vaccines to more than 330 million Americans while also combating misinformation about vaccines spread on social media. Hospitals are straining under a record number of COVID-19 patients and doctors fear that number will surge following family gatherings this week. Testing shortages still plague many parts of the country 10 months after the first coronavirus case was detected in the United States.

As Texas reels from surging coronavirus cases and deaths, Sen. Ted Cruz is focused on making sure his Thanksgiving holiday goes as planned. Morgues in Texas are full, for example, and thousands of people are lining up for food rations. In an attempt to alleviate some of the pressure, the state government decided to send in the National Guard to El Paso to process bodies. "Forty percent of the folks coming through our partners' doors are doing so for the first time," Anna Kurian, a spokesperson for North Texas Food Bank, told CNN. Less than two weeks ago, Texas became the first state to hit 1 million coronavirus cases.

(Reuters) - The number of COVID-19 cases in the United States was on track to surpass 12 million on Saturday, just days ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday that health experts have warned could fuel the surging spread of infection around the country. Reuters data shows the pace of new infections in the United States has quickened, with nearly one million more cases recorded in just the last 6 days since the country recorded 11 million. This compares with the 8 days it took to get from 10 million cases to 11 million cases, and the 10 days it took to get from 9 to 10 million. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control issued a “strong recommendation” to Americans this week to refrain from traveling over Thanksgiving. As the United States set a new record for COVID-19 cases on Friday - 196,815 infections in a day - Pfizer Inc said it would seek emergency-use authorization of its vaccine from U.S. regulators, the first such application.

A Friday report from the Centers for Disease Control found that counties in Kansas that adopted a mask mandate saw a decrease in cases of the disease, while counties that opted out saw an increase by 100%. A new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released Friday found that counties in Kansas that adopted a mask mandate saw a decrease in COVID-19 transmission compared to counties that did not, which saw an increase in the disease caused by the novel coronavirus. Laura Kelly, a Democrat, on July 3 issued a statewide mask mandate, but counties were able to individually opt-out from her order. According to the CDC report, following the issuing of the opt-out mandate, COVID-19 incidence decreased in 24 counties with mask mandates but increased in 81 counties that opted out of the order. President-elect Joe Biden has said he would consider implementing a nationwide mask mandate as part of his COVID-19 mitigation strategy, and Dr. Anthony Fauci, the longtime director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, in October said he endorsed a mask mandate.

This month, Moderna, BioNTech, and Pfizer all announced that their COVID-19 vaccine candidates had passed phase 3 testing. Over the past two weeks, Pfizer, BioNTech, and Moderna released promising results from the phase 3 testing of their COVID-19 vaccine candidates. Last week, Pfizer and BioNTech announced that a preliminary analysis had found that their vaccine candidate was over 90% effective against the COVID-19 virus. Then, on Monday, the Cambridge, Massachusetts-based biotech company Moderna announced that its vaccine was 94.5% effective against COVID-19. But in an important next step, Pfizer and BioNTech announced that they were requesting emergency approval from the FDA on Friday.

People who are infected with the coronavirus but show no symptoms probably account for most coronavirus transmission, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported on Friday. Anthony Fauci warns that this could be a "major source" of spread as Thanksgiving approaches. As coronavirus cases surge higher than ever before across the US, it's important to remember that most of them spread from people with no symptoms. Al Drago/AFP via Getty ImagesThe CDC report stressed that masks help reduce asymptomatic spread since they can protect both the mask-wearer and the people around them. "You get one person who's asymptomatic and infected, and then all of a sudden four or five people in that gathering are infected," Fauci said last month.

Posts on Facebook showing a graph plotting daily new coronavirus cases along with the claim that “mask mandates may have actually spread COVID-19.” This claim is false. Mask mandates are not responsible for spikes in COVID-19 cases, and studies have proven that they reduce the spread of the novel coronavirus. The social media posts’ claim that wearing masks contributes to the spread of COVID-19 contradicts the findings of several scientific studies. For example, a study published by the University of Kansas on Oct. 25 (here) found that Kansas counties with mask mandates avoided a major surge in COVID-19 infections, while counties without such requirements saw a steady climb (here) . Unlike earlier waves, which were met with shutdown orders and mask mandates, the country has shown little appetite for widespread new restrictions” (here).

Trial size and design: Larger is betterClinical trials are typically made up of three main phases, but not all vaccine trials are designed the same way. Those are different questions.”Should we withhold the vaccine from the population for two years because we want perfect data? Tracking side effectsThe FDA requires that vaccine developers submit two months of follow-up safety data as part of the application for emergency use. These are just chance associations, but vaccine programs are prone to be undermined by them.”Reviewed by independent scientistsThere is a system in place to review vaccine data before it is granted approval and made available to the public. And the committees will continue to evaluate safety data over time, according to Lee.
