A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention panel voted 13-1 on Tuesday to give health-care workers and long-term care facility residents the first coronavirus vaccine doses once it's cleared for public use. Moderna and Pfizer have both requested emergency clearance from the Food and Drug Administration for their Covid-19 vaccines last month. The committee defined health-care workers as paid and unpaid people serving in health-care settings who have the potential for direct or indirect exposure to patients or infectious materials. About 75% of health-care workers are women, according to a presentation during the meeting, and 330,000 of them are pregnant.

Six American oil executives held for three years in Venezuela were found guilty of corruption charges by a judge on Thursday. CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Six American oil executives held for three years in Venezuela were found guilty of corruption charges by a judge Thursday and immediately sentenced to prison, dashing hopes of a quick release that would send them home to their families in the United States. The so-called Citgo 6 are employees of Houston-based Citgo refining company, which is owned by Venezuela's state oil company, PDVSA. Despite his circumstances, Vadell held out hope. During his 35-year career with PDVSA and Citgo, Vadell ended up running a refinery in Lake Charles and then became vice president of refining.

A venture capitalist who gave $2.5 million to a pro-Trump group that said it was trying to find evidence of election fraud is now looking for a refund. A lawsuit said Fred Eshelman gave vast sums to Texas-based True the Vote, but was soon disappointed with its efforts. Fred Eshelman is suing True the Vote Inc., a monitoring organization based in Houston, Texas, to reclaim the money. The lawsuit claimed Eshelman sent $2 million to True the Vote on November 5, two days after Election Day. It also launched a hotline for people to share testimony about election fraud, but it ended up being overwhelmed with prank calls.

T cells and B cells protect us long-term, too. New research suggests that recovered coronavirus patients likely have a robust immune memory that persists for at least eight months. To assess how long immunity to the virus lasts across these various layers of the immune system, scientists measured how many — and what types of — immune cells recovered coronavirus patients had months after they got sick. While antibodies wane, T cells and B cells persistSome research has suggested that coronavirus antibodies — blood proteins that protect the body from subsequent infection — fade within a few months.

While new revenue streams from destinations like the Caribbean will help, they won’t be enough to put airlines in the black for the year, analysts have said. The holiday period is traditionally when airlines thrive ahead of slow months in January and February. Still, demand is down by around 60% and airlines say it’s too soon to know how Christmas travel will play out. Still, airlines are hoping to build up a base of customers who feel comfortable about flying before a COVID-19 vaccine becomes widely available, eyeing the typically lucrative summer travel season. Airlines are trying to reboot overseas travel through bilateral bubbles - deals between countries on COVID-19 testing protocols that would replace or reduce quarantines - though programs have been slow to take off.

(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.

CHICAGO (Reuters) - A leading U.S. health official on Friday appealed to Americans to avoid unnecessary travel and limit social gatherings during the Thanksgiving holiday, fearing a further acceleration of the coronavirus pandemic after one of the deadliest weeks in months. A healthcare worker holds a coronavirus disease (COVID-19) informational pamphlet for a resident at a drive-thru testing location in Houston, Texas, U.S., November 20, 2020. “This is faster, it is broader and what worries me - it could be longer,” Birx told CNN. “In South Dakota, we won’t stop or discourage you from thanking God and spending time together this Thanksgiving,” Noem said in a statement on Friday.

The FDA approved remdesivir as a treatment for severe COVID-19 cases last month, after granting emergency authorization in May. But on Thursday, the World Health Organization announced it will not recommend the drug's use for COVID-19 patients. A study published the same month found that it shortened recovery times for seriously ill COVID-19 patients. Yet in aggregate, the data did not conclusively show that remdesivir to have any benefit for COVID-19 patients. A September analysis found that COVID-19 patients treated with steroids were substantially less likely to die than patients who didn't get them.

Health-care workers in the United States could get the first doses of a coronavirus vaccine in about a month. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar told CNBC earlier this week that the FDA would move "as quickly as possible" to clear both Pfizer and Moderna's vaccine. It's a record-breaking timeframe for a process that normally takes about a decade for an effective and safe vaccine. In an interview with NPR that aired Tuesday, Fauci said there will be some people in the U.S. who will be getting inoculated with a Covid-19 vaccine towards the end of December. They devised the proposed guidelines at the request of the National Institutes of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
