MORTON, Texas, June 25 (Reuters) - The phone rang non-stop in Emily Herrera's office at the Cochran Memorial Hospital. Complete, consistent data on the racial breakdowns of who has received the vaccine is not available from most states. 'NOT A HOAX'Reuters interviewed 14 unvaccinated people aged 36 and younger in Cochran County and neighboring Hockley County this week. Rebecca Weintraub, faculty director of the Global Health Delivery Project at Harvard University, said that even before COVID-19, vaccine hesitancy had been steadily increasing.

WASHINGTON — The Biden administration said Thursday that it would extend the temporary bans on evictions and foreclosures for another month as the country continues to rebound from the coronavirus pandemic. The White House and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which issued the extension to the eviction ban, made clear that July would be the "final" month of the benefit. The agencies will make an additional announcement in July "to offer borrowers payment reduction options that will enable more homeowners to stay in their homes," the White House said. The White House said the Treasury Department would work with states to help them rapidly distribute the money and would issue new guidelines making clear that the money could be used to avoid eviction. Biden, shortly after taking office in January, extended the moratorium through the end of March and again extended it through June.

CDC Extends Federal Eviction Moratorium Through July
  + stars: | 2021-06-24 | by ( Andrew Ackerman | ) sentiment -1.00   time to read: +1 min
WASHINGTON—The Biden administration has issued a monthlong extension of a moratorium, through July, on the eviction of tenants who have fallen behind on their rent during the pandemic, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Thursday. The extension is needed to prevent a wave of evictions before states and local governments can distribute about $47 billion of rental assistance authorized by Congress to cover unpaid back rent, administration officials said. The CDC said the move is intended to be the final extension of the moratorium. The judge who issued that ruling stayed the effect of the decision while litigation continues. The CDC moratorium, which originated from an executive order signed by then-President Donald Trump, shields tenants who have missed monthly rent payments from being forced out of their homes if they declare financial hardship.

The White House had no plans in place to swear in Pence, if needed, during Trump's bout with COVID-19. Trump, who became sick with COVID-19 in October 2020, was a very high-risk patient. And as Abultaeb and Paletta previously reported and documented in the book excerpt, Trump's condition was far more serious than the White House let on at the time. A president can also temporarily transfer the powers of the presidency to the vice president under Section 3 of the 25th Amendment — George W. Bush briefly handed over the reins to his vice president, Dick Cheney, when he went under anesthesia for colonoscopies under his presidency, for example. After being treated with multiple anti-viral therapeutic drugs and steroids during a short stay at Walter Reed Medical Center, Trump returned to the White House and recovered.

REUTERS/Tiksa NegeriHARARE, June 24 (Reuters) - Africa is not winning its fight against the COVID-19 pandemic as a third virus wave sweeps the continent and countries struggle to access enough vaccines for their populations, Africa CDC director John Nkengasong said on Thursday. read moreAfrica Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC) director Nkengasong said he was more worried about getting vaccines in time, regardless of where the doses came from. Africa's third wave is spreading faster and hitting the continent harder, the WHO's Africa head Matshidiso Moeti said at a later briefing on Thursday. Cases are outpacing vaccinations, Moeti said, and the continent desperately and urgently needed COVID-19 drugs. About 1.12% people have been fully vaccinated on a continent that has recorded 5.2 million infections, Nkengasong said.

The CDC acknowledged Wednesday that mild heart inflammation may be a rare side effect of COVID-19 vaccination. COVID-19 is still a greater threat to the heart, though, which is why health experts recommend vaccination. Rare cases which merit delaying shot 2Public health leaders have high confidence the vaccines are safe, which is why they're recommending full COVID-19 vaccination, even for young men. Concerned parents: look out for these symptomsMost cases of myocarditis surface in the first five days after a COVID-19 shot is administered. The bottom line, says Dr. Tom Shimabukuro from the CDC's COVID-19 vaccine safety team, is that "this is still a rare event," far less common than the heart inflammation that can accompany a COVID-19 infection.

There’s no evidence yet to suggest that a Covid-19 vaccine booster shot is needed, a working group for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Wednesday. Another question posed to the advisory committee is what evidence should be used to decide whether boosters are needed? Though the current evidence suggests that at this point, a booster isn’t needed, scientists will continue to monitor the data. This finding will help researchers in all vaccine trials determine whether a person’s immunity has fallen below necessary levels. Any trial looking at booster dose study will likely focus on laboratory data as opposed to looking at how protective the vaccine is in the real world, which is what the original vaccine trials did, Barouch said.

The benefits of Covid-19 vaccination far outweigh the risks of heart inflammation in young people, a panel of independent advisers to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Wednesday. “The benefits certainly, at this time, outweigh the potential risks,” said advisory committee member Dr. Pablo Sanchez, a professor of pediatrics at Ohio State University. Myocarditis cases were most common in males in their teens and early 20s, and were mostly to occur within one week after the second dose. The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices presentations underscored that the vast majority of patients have recovered, though more data on the long-term effects are needed. “The most common is after you have a viral infection.” Passeretti is not a member of the advisory committee.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advisers said Wednesday that there is a “likely association” between Pfizer -BioNTech and Moderna ’s mRNA Covid-19 vaccines and an inflammatory heart condition in some younger individuals, but noted that cases were rare and that most patients quickly felt better. The CDC and other health authorities still recommend Covid-19 vaccination for those age 12 and above, given the greater risk from Covid-19, which itself can cause myocarditis and other complications. The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, which consists of pediatricians, infectious-disease doctors and other medical experts outside the CDC, is meeting through Friday to discuss the rare but serious heart inflammation after mRNA vaccines and other vaccine issues. Around 1,200 cases of myocarditis and pericarditis following mRNA vaccines had been reported to a federal vaccine safety database as of June 11, according to a CDC presentation to the group. To date, over 300 million doses of mRNA vaccine have been administered in the U.S., according to the CDC.

Myocarditis is the inflammation of the heart muscle, while pericarditis is the inflammation of the membrane surrounding the heart. There have been nearly 800 reported cases of heart problems to the vaccine safety monitor system, according to the U.S. agency. The CDC said two-thirds of the cases were in young males, with a median age of 30. "We clearly have an imbalance there," Shimabukuro said on June 10 at a meeting of the FDA's Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee. The FDA advisory group met to discuss safety issues surrounding the use of Covid vaccines in children as young as 6 months old.

White House chief medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci said Wednesday the delta variant now accounts for roughly 20% of newly diagnosed cases in the U.S. and will become the dominant Covid strain in the nation in a matter of weeks. It went from a minor variant to now more than 90% of the isolates in the U.K.," Fauci said on NBC's "TODAY" show. Fauci said the variant has a doubling time of about two weeks and currently accounts for 20% of the isolates in the U.S., which are newly diagnosed infections. At a White House Covid briefing Tuesday, Fauci called the variant the greatest threat to U.S. efforts to contain the pandemic. "It looks like it's more transmissible, it looks like it can reinfect people who've already had Covid.

Please refresh the page if you do not see a player above at that time.] A key Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advisory panel is holding a meeting Wednesday to discuss rare, but higher-than-expected, reports of heart inflammation in 16- to 24-year-olds after receiving their second dose of Pfizer's or Moderna's Covid-19 vaccines. The CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices meeting comes about two weeks after the agency said it has seen a higher-than-projected number of cases of myocarditis or pericarditis in 16- to-24-year-olds after their second Covid shot. Myocarditis is the inflammation of the heart muscle, while pericarditis is the inflammation of the membrane surrounding the heart. There were nearly 800 reported cases of heart problems to the vaccine safety monitor system as of last month, according to the U.S. agency.

New York's state of emergency is set to end on June 24, Gov. The state of emergency lasted for over a year, often overriding county and municipal governments. Cuomo will no longer be able to issue executive orders in areas normally reserved for the legislature. Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday that the state of emergency put in place at the start of the pandemic will expire the next day, June 24. The expiration of the state of emergency also means Cuomo will not be able to issue executive orders in areas normally reserved for the legislature.

Myocarditis, a heart inflammation, has affected 0.004% of men aged 12-29 after their second shot of a COVID-19 vaccine. CDC advisors met Wednesday and acknowledged a likely link between COVID-19 vaccination and myocarditis in young men. But myocarditis risk from COVID-19 is much higher, especially with the Delta variant in play. The rate of such reports, while tiny, has been highest among young men, after their second dose of Pfizer or Moderna's mRNA vaccines. The advisory group weighed the risks and benefits of vaccination to young men, and determined that benefits of vaccination clearly outweigh risks, even for males from 12-17 years old.

The Covid-19 working group of the CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices didn't rule out the possibility that the general population eventually may need booster shots if immunity from the vaccines wanes or a variant reduces the effectiveness of current shots. A group of CDC scientists said Wednesday that there isn't enough data to support recommending Covid-19 booster shots to the general population — at this time — but more vulnerable people like the elderly or transplant recipients may need an extra dose. A recent study by researchers at John Hopkins University published in the Annals of Internal Medicine showed that booster shots may be beneficial for people with weakened immune systems. The working group recommended that the CDC consider booster shots only "after evidence of declining protection," Oliver said, meaning the vaccines were less effective over time or antibodies guarding against Covid waned over time. The agency could also consider using booster shots if a variant emerged that substantially reduced the effectiveness of the vaccine.

Benefits and risksDuring Wednesday's meeting, CDC researchers said the benefits of vaccination were clear. For every million second-dose vaccinations, there may be tens of myocarditis cases, but thousands of Covid-19 cases prevented, the CDC said. It's estimated there might be 56 to 69 myocarditis cases. People with a history of heart inflammation can still receive any Covid-19 vaccine, the CDC said Wednesday.

Dr. Fauci and the Mask Disaster

Politicians and officials wouldn’t be doing their jobs if they didn’t measure the effect of their words, beyond merely their accuracy or consistency. And Dr. Fauci, director of U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases for the past 36 years, has at least been more wink-wink in this regard than many officials. But the latest furor does underline one thing: what a colossal disaster for public understanding masks have been. Until November, the official advice was the same that Dr. Fauci gave in a now infamous early email to a colleague—a store-bought mask may somewhat reduce your chance of spreading the disease if you happen to be infected. It will do little to prevent you from catching it if you’re breathing around someone who is exhaling the Covid virus.

Are Covid Vaccines Riskier Than Advertised?

Some scientists have raised concerns that the safety risks of Covid-19 vaccines have been underestimated. The Vaers data for Covid-19 vaccines show an interesting pattern. Among the 310 million Covid-19 vaccines given, several adverse events are reported at high rates in the days immediately after vaccination, and then fall precipitously afterward. Some of these adverse events might have occurred anyway. The pattern may be partly attributable to the tendency to report more events that happen soon after vaccination.
