LONDON — Britain's Health Minister Matt Hancock apologized on Friday and accepted he had breached social-distancing guidance after a tabloid newspaper published a picture of him kissing and embracing his top aide in his office. I have let people down and am very sorry," Hancock, who is married, said in a statement. The Sun said the picture of Hancock and the aide was taken last month. The Rupert Murdoch-owned tabloid said Hancock met the aide at Oxford University in the early 2000s. Asked about the appropriateness of appointing friends to positions in government, Transport Minister Grant Shapps told U.K. broadcaster Sky News that "very strict rules" were in place.

Black Voters Matter has embarked on what the national advocacy and policy group has christened a Freedom Ride for Voting Rights. Its goals, BVM co-founders LaTosha Brown and Cliff Albright note, are threefold: to amplify the need for federal voting rights legislation, build Black voting power, and advocate for Washington, D.C., statehood. People gather during the launch of the "Freedom Ride for Voting Rights" in Jackson, Miss., on June 19, 2021. Founded in 1869, the historically Black college became one of the epicenters of the civil rights movement. “Amen!”Barbara Arnwine, a lawyer, updated the crowd on voting rights legislation before Congress.

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.

India Warns of New Versions of Delta Variant Spreading
  + stars: | 2021-06-25 | by ( Shan Li | ) sentiment -1.00   time to read: +1 min
NEW DELHI—India is warning about new versions of the highly infectious Delta variant of the coronavirus that are spreading around the country, containing a mutation that the original didn’t have. Indian officials have dubbed new versions of the variant containing the mutation Delta Plus. Indian officials have been closely monitoring the Delta variant, which fueled the country’s ferocious Covid-19 surge in April and May. India has detected about 50 cases of Delta Plus so far through genomic sequencing. Scientists say there is no evidence that Delta Plus is significantly more transmissible or deadlier than the original variant.

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?"

Medical workers in Indonesia are grappling with the pressure of caring for Covid-19 patients while quickly vaccinating the country's residents as infections increase, according to a global health and humanitarian relief organization. "Health care workers in Indonesia are struggling with a double burden," said Edhie Rahmat, executive director for Indonesia at Project HOPE, short for Health Opportunities for People Everywhere. First, they have to take care of both Covid patients and patients with other diseases. Total infections crossed the 2 million threshold on Monday, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. Meanwhile, around 8.9% of Indonesia's population has received at least one dose of a Covid vaccine, and 4.6% of the country is fully vaccinated, according to Our World in Data.

Residents receive vaccines against the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) at a makeshift vaccination site in Guangzhou, Guangdong province, China June 21, 2021. cnsphoto via REUTERSBEIJING, June 25 (Reuters) - Antibodies triggered by two Chinese COVID-19 vaccines are less effective against the Delta variant compared with other strains but the shots still offer protection, a Chinese disease control researcher told state media. 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.

A Taipei-based official familiar with Japan's two vaccine donations said while the Japanese government has been subtle in its offers, mainly focusing on Taiwan's urgent medical need, there was a broader message. The island, which China claims as its own territory, also received 2.5 million vaccine doses from the United States this month. Its foreign minister, Toshimitsu Motegi, said on Friday Japan would start to supply 11 million doses in total to regions including Southeast Asia, Southwest Asia and the Pacific islands through the COVAX from mid-July.

UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock had an affair with an aide he hired on a £15,000 contract, The Sun reported. Hancock was pictured embracing Gina Coladangelo, a close friend from university who he hired. A Labour spokesperson said when "jobs are being offered to close friends who are in a personal relationship with a minister, then that needs to be looked into." Hancock, who is married, secretly hired former lobbyist Coladangelo as an adviser last year, The Sunday Times previously reported. Less than two weeks later, Hancock urged British people to minimise indoor contact with others to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

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.

A top US public-health expert has warned COVID-19 cases in the US could spike within weeks. The US hadn't vaccinated enough people to stop the spread of the highly infectious Delta variant, Dr. Ashish Jha said. 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.

Workers offload the AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccines under the COVAX scheme against coronavirus disease (COVID-19) at the Aden Abdulle Osman Airport in Mogadishu, Somalia March 15, 2021. The total funds available to cover the cost of delivering the vaccines will rise to $925 million, GAVI said in a statement issued after a two-day board meeting. GAVI's board also set new terms for accessing vaccines, which will disincentivise middle-income nations from participating by insisting they pay for COVAX vaccines fully in advance next year. "Starting in 2022, the model will enable self-financing participants that rely on the facility to access doses to continue procuring vaccines through COVAX under revised terms and conditions," it said. However, the poorest countries, mostly in Africa and Southeast Asia, will keep the same conditions, with little or no costs to buy vaccines.

Temporary moratoriums have protected up to 40 million coronavirus-battered U.S. residents against a catastrophic spread of potential evictions. (The moratorium is currently set to expire at the end of June, although the federal officials are now reportedly looking to extend it.) Second, we need to treat housing as infrastructure, just as Canada, Australia and many European countries do. America needs to invest in cost-effective strategies to prevent housing-insecure families from becoming homeless in the first place by expanding recent successful efforts, like the existing Emergency Rental Assistance Program, which provides one-time, short-term emergency housing assistance to very low-income households that lack any cushion when facing a housing emergency. We can get more done, and more quickly, if we allow greater local flexibility to make existing federal housing programs more effective.

Hospital Stocks’ Rally Points to Post-Covid Growth

Hospital stocks have trounced the market this year, and the steps they took to get through the pandemic could keep the rally going. Hospitals were hit hard financially by the costs of Covid-19, which crimped their ability to do high-margin elective procedures. The financial turmoil of the past year in some respects has added to the urgency of changes that already were under way at publicly traded hospital operators. They have helped the shares of big hospital operators such as Tenet Healthcare Corp. and Community Health Systems Inc. significantly outperform the broader market this year. What began as a recovery rally for hospital stocks could now prove to be longer lasting, say analysts and industry investors.

The stress tests gauge banks’ ability to maintain strong capital levels and keep lending to businesses and households in a severe recession. The Fed typically performs the test annually but added a second test last fall to account for pandemic-related stresses. Four smaller banks on a two-year stress test cycle opted into the test. But then the economy snapped back far quicker than banks or the stress test imagined. The stress tests were introduced following the financial crisis of 2008-09, when the U.S. government bailed out some of the largest financial institutions.
