Any company and any store is going to accept bitcoin or some type of digital currency.”Roberts’ camp may be the only one of its kind in the U.S., though it’s beginning to inspire others, especially among Black bitcoin investors. Isaiah Jackson, author of the book “Bitcoin & Black America” and a bitcoin podcaster, said he plans to start taking sign-ups next week for an online-only cryptocurrency camp in July. “They’ve seen digital money. Of the five students in her first camp, four had parents who own digital currency, she said.

A broader dollar retreat and a bipartisan U.S. Senate deal on infrastructure spending also boosted emerging assets, with the Thai baht strengthening from a 13-month low hit on Thursday. The country has also approved the emergency use of the COVID-19 vaccine developed by Indian vaccine developer Bharat Biotech, and will receive a million doses of AstraZeneca Plc's COVID-19 vaccine from Japan. The baht had skidded lower after Thailand's central bank on Wednesday downgraded annual growth forecasts and pledged an accommodative policy stance Political uncertainty is also weighing. Hundreds of pro-democracy protesters took to the streets on Thursday, calling for the prime minister to resign. Jakarta stocks rose nearly 1% to snap two sessions of losses, while Malaysian shares registered their best session in a week.

Preliminary findings by Israeli health officials suggest about 90% of the new infections were caused by the Delta variant, according to Ran Balicer, who leads an expert advisory panel on Covid-19 for the government. Around half of those infected were fully vaccinated, he said. Israel is now reassessing its Covid-19 regulations after moving to open up its society and economy after multiple lockdowns last year. “The entrance of the delta variant has changed the transition dynamics,” said Prof. Balicer, who is also the chief innovation officer for Israel’s largest health-management organization, Clalit. The Delta variant, which first emerged in India in late 2020 and is also known as B.1.617.2, has now been detected in more than 70 countries.

WASHINGTON — Vice President Kamala Harris, after weeks of pressure from her political opponents, will visit the U.S.-Mexico border Friday, as part of her role addressing the root causes of migration. "[Harris' trip to the border] is really about building on the work that she has been doing. Republicans criticized Harris' decision to visit El Paso rather than other parts of the state like, the Rio Grande Valley, which see significantly more border crossings. Although partisan politics are likely to hang over Harris' trip Friday, she will also be forced to confront major policy issues. Rohini Kosoglu, domestic policy adviser to the vice president and one of Harris' longest serving aides, said that Harris "has spent her career fighting for immigrants."

Patients with lingering Covid-19 symptoms should wait even longer, the study suggested. Some experts said seven weeks is too arbitrary a threshold for scheduling surgery for patients who have had Covid-19. The operation to be performed, patients’ medical conditions and the risk of delaying surgery should all be factored in. Oregon Health and Sciences University clinicians developed a protocol a year ago for clearing any patient who had Covid-19 for elective surgery. If the assessment raises no red flags, patients can be cleared for surgery once they have waited the minimum seven weeks since their Covid-19 diagnosis.

Sydney Locks Down as Delta Covid-19 Variant Spreads
  + stars: | 2021-06-25 | by ( Rhiannon Hoyle | ) www.wsj.com sentiment -0.98   time to read: +1 min
SYDNEY—Parts of Australia’s largest city will go into a rare lockdown for at least a week as officials seek to stamp out an outbreak of the highly infectious Delta variant of the coronavirus. The last lockdown in Sydney, in December, was confined to the 70,000 residents of Sydney’s Northern Beaches area and lasted three weeks. Australia has been relatively successful at containing the virus throughout the pandemic by keeping its borders largely shut and requiring travelers to quarantine. The country has recorded about 30,000 coronavirus cases, mostly among quarantined travelers from overseas, compared with more than 33 million cases in the U.S. On Friday, officials said the outbreak included 65 cases, with 22 new locally acquired cases having been recorded on the day prior.

While pent-up demand may underpin private consumption, which makes up more than half of the economy, a global chip shortage may weigh on an export-led recovery, analysts say. "Overseas economies will continue to recover but cuts in car production will drag on, causing factory output to seesaw in June and July as well," said Takeshi Minami, chief economist at Norinchukin Research Institute. Japan's economy likely avoided falling into recession this quarter but an extension of emergency measures to stem a rise in coronavirus infections has dented the growth outlook, a separate Reuters poll showed.

Democrats and Republicans alike agree that there’s been a serious spike in violent crime over the last couple of years — the highest in more than a decade. Biden deserves kudos for standing up to his party’s loud progressive wing and insisting on taking action before more Americans needlessly die. The White House’s fact sheet on Biden’s crime-fighting plan talks of “gun violence resulting from the pandemic,” “gun violence exacerbated by the pandemic” and “gun violence associated with the pandemic.” In fact, the homicide spike “actually began in 2019, prior to the pandemic,” noted the National Commission on Covid-19 and Criminal Justice, a bipartisan panel assessing the pandemic’s effect on the justice system. More Americans believe violent crime is a “very big problem” than think the same about the coronavirus, a recent Yahoo News/YouGov poll found. In fact, violent crime was respondents’ top concern, beating the economy and race relations.

REUTERS/Thomas PeterSHANGHAI, June 25 (Reuters) - The virus that causes COVID-19 could have started spreading in China as early as October 2019, two months before the first case was identified in the central city of Wuhan, a new study showed on Friday. China's first official COVID-19 case was in December 2019 and was linked to Wuhan's Huanan seafood market. In a paper released in preprintform this week, Jesse Bloom of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle recovered deleted sequencing data from early COVID-19 cases in China. Critics said the deletion was further evidence that China was trying to cover up the origins of COVID-19. "Why would scientists ask international databases to delete key data that informs us about how COVID-19 began in Wuhan?"

Lawmakers want to make COVID-19 vaccines available to Americans living abroad. Now a bipartisan group of lawmakers is urging the administration to help make vaccines available to the as many as 9 million Americans living abroad. "While Americans abroad are eligible to receive vaccines in some countries, in others, Americans are ineligible as non-citizens," the senators wrote. "Should Americans living abroad wish to travel to the US to receive the vaccine, the financial burden of travel as well as lengthy quarantine requirements upon return to their host country may be prohibitive." Accordingly, the senators wrote, "millions of Americans abroad worry they may not have access to a vaccine for months or even years."

LONDON — The U.K. has one of the highest Covid-19 vaccination rates in the world, yet it's seeing a new surge in coronavirus cases largely attributed to the delta variant that first originated in India. Experts say that close attention is being paid to the latest data out of the U.K. as it could be a bellwether for others. And there is a fear that where the U.K. now treads, others — like the U.S. — could follow. "All eyes (are) on UK Covid trends," Kallum Pickering, senior economist and director at Berenberg Bank, said in a note Tuesday. Secondly, he noted that new hospital admissions had increased less than recorded infections — and by much less than during the winter wave.

"We don't want to see this situation linger for weeks, we would like to see this situation end sooner rather than later," Berejiklian said. AMA president Omar Khorshid said the latest restrictions were "not quite enough" and urged officials to place the entire city under lockdown.

The Delta variant of the new coronavirus, first detected in India, is becoming the globally dominant variant of the disease with its increased transmissibility, the World Health Organization's chief scientist warned last week. It remains unclear how many of them contracted the Delta variant. About 85% of the Guangdong cases in the latest outbreak were found in the provincial capital, Guangzhou. "In the Guangdong outbreak ... none of those vaccinated infections became severe cases, and none of the severe cases were vaccinated," Feng said.

Live Covid-19 Live Updates: More U.S. States Try Lotteries to Tackle Vaccine Hesitancy Louisiana, where the inoculation rate has lagged significantly behind the national average, is among the latest to dangle cash prizes and scholarships in return for getting a shot. Six of the bottom eight states are in the South: They include Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia and Tennessee. The Biden administration has made a concerted push to overcome vaccine hesitancy, particularly in the South. In some states, he said, the lotteries coincided with making the vaccine available to teenagers, which could skew the numbers. He suggested comparing the vaccination rates in states with lotteries to those without them.

"It makes no sense," said Ross, 34, adding that no witnesses have stepped forward in the “broad daylight” murder. Such tributes have become a common sight in the poorer neighborhoods of Rochester, a city of 206,000 people in the northwestern part of the state. The per-capita murder rate climbed 30 percent in 2020 among 34 major cities surveyed by Richard Rosenfeld, a criminologist at the University of Missouri in St. Louis. Evans said the murder surge reflects rising problems with drug trafficking, criminal gangs and illegal firearms during the pandemic. The city’s police union, the Rochester Police Locust Club, said the department has only 12 investigators to pursue murder cases.

A top US public-health doctor has warned that the nation hasn't vaccinated enough people to stop a spike in cases from the Delta coronavirus virus. The Delta variant is spreading especially quickly in kids, who are unvaccinated — but it doesn't appear to be causing more severe COVID-19 than other variants. It's the latest warning from US experts that are using data from the UK to predict what might happen in the US as Delta cases rise.

Some nations with high rates of the Delta variant are seeing an uptick in COVID-19 related deaths. The Delta coronavirus variant appears to be more transmissible and more able to cause symptomatic illnesses among people who have been given one dose of COVID-19 vaccine. Russia, Indonesia, Britain, and Israel have been dealing with a surge in cases, which they attribute to the Delta variant. As of Wednesday, just 11% of its population has been fully vaccinated, and 14% have received one dose of COVID-19 vaccine, the Associated Press reported. Indonesia recently reported that hundreds of healthcare workers vaccinated with the Chinese vaccine Sinovac caught the coronavirus.
