Medical professionals assist coronavirus disease (COVID-19) patients in the overcrowded intensive care unit at the Emergency Hospital "Bagdasar-Arseni", in Bucharest, Romania, October 19, 2021. Daily COVID-19 inoculation numbers have reached pandemic highs this month in the European Union's second-lowest vaccinated country, as Romanians respond to dramatic death rates and newly enforced restrictions. "The COVID-19 (hospital) situation has scared us," she said. I am afraid of side effects which may show up over time, the vaccine has not been sufficiently tested. But in October, more people received their first vaccine shot - just under 1 million out of a total 6.5 million - than over the three months of summer combined, data showed.

During the first wave, for instance, strict stay-at-home measures and drastic changes in behavior may have stalled the virus for a time. Without tight virus restrictions in place, the virus spread outward into suburbs and exurbs. In the other waves, you see more of a general flow,” Dr. Vespignani said, “Like when you throw a stone in a pond.”The winter waveNorth Dakota Wisconsin South Dakota Southern California Arizona North Dakota Wisconsin South Dakota Southern California Arizona North Dakota South Dakota California ArizonaThe flow of cases is clearer in the surge that began in the Upper Midwest in September 2020. North and South Dakota had few virus restrictions in place to contain an outbreak, and both states had particularly bad spikes. All the same, there are bound to remain places where the virus can spread, as each new wave has shown.

Scandinavian Airlines will no longer require face masks on flights within Scandinavia. Qatar Airways experimented with allowing business class passengers to only wear face masks at their discretion, as Insider reported in July 2020, but now requires all passengers to wear a face mask. Travelers on SAS flights not within Scandinavia, however, will still have to wear masks as the airline says it will follow European Union Aviation Safety Agency recommendations for face masks on non-intra-Scandinavian flights. "SAS maintains the requirement to use face masks onboard flights to other European and intercontinental destinations until further notice," the airline said. In the US, air travelers are set to be wearing face masks into 2022.

REUTERS/Stephane MahePARIS, Oct 15 (Reuters) - France saw the biggest spike in new coronavirus infections since the end of July on the last day of free testing for unvaccinated people, health ministry data showed. The ministry reported 6,099 new cases over the past 24 hours, an increase of 36% compared to last Friday's 4,470 cases. From Friday, people who have not been vaccinated have had to pay for COVID-19 tests, which so far had been free in France. Tests will remain free of charge for people who have been vaccinated, for people who show symptoms and have a doctor's note, and for minors between 12 and 17. France also registered 32 new deaths and the seven-day average of deaths fell by one to 30.

Kids are vulnerable to COVID misinformation on TikTok within minutes of signing up, a study shows. Though TikTok prohibits users under 13, younger children can easily lie about their age to sign up. Social media companies continue to face public criticism about their effects on young users. The popular social media app TikTok is feeding misinformation content to young children — even within minutes of signing up. False information was targeted toward children as young as nine, even if the young users did not follow nor search for that content.

DENMARKAs of Oct. 7, Denmark had administered at least 8,792,456 doses of COVID vaccines. On Sept. 10, Denmark lifted all COVID-19 related restrictions, declaring that the disease was no longer a “critical threat to society” ( here ). Sweden removed most remaining pandemic restrictions on Sept. 29, eliminating most curbs and limits on public venues such as restaurants, theatres and stadiums. The country introduced a vaccination certificate in June for holders to enter events in Norway ( here ). Denmark, Sweden and Norway ended all or most of its COVID-19 related restrictions due to an epidemic control and a high vaccination rate, not because they stopped believing in the pandemic or vaccination efforts, as claimed on social media.

Over a 15-month period of the pandemic, more than 120,000 children in the United States had a parent or caregiver die from Covid-19, a loss that more severely affected racial minorities, according to a modeling study published in the medical journal Pediatrics on Thursday. The study estimated that for every four Covid-19 deaths between April 1, 2020, and June 30, 2021, one child lost a parent or caregiver. The finding suggested that the ongoing pandemic, which has claimed more than 700,000 American lives thus far, could leave tens of thousands of children dealing with trauma for generations to come. In addition to the 120,630 children who were estimated to have lost a primary caregiver — a parent or grandparent responsible for providing housing, basic needs and care — 22,007 lost a secondary caregiver, or a grandparent providing housing but not most basic needs, the study projected. Dr. Hillis said the loss of such grandparents could lead to homelessness.

A health worker looks on at a booth as healthcare staff receive the COVID-19 booster vaccine, amid the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, at Midland House in Derby, Britain, September 20, 2021. Prime Minister Boris Johnson is betting on vaccinating children and giving booster shots to vulnerable adults to avoid a winter COVID-19 lockdown this year. Johnson has locked down England's economy three times to avoid COVID overwhelming the National Health Service. We may yet see a significant surge in infections later in the autumn, into the winter," Ferguson told Reuters following the launch of the Imperial College London Institute of Infection. Ferguson said that such constant case numbers was an unusual pattern, and things could get tougher heading into winter as people spend more time indoors.

But in Scandinavia, Scotland, Germany, France, South Korea and the United States, cases are falling, despite fears the more transmissible Delta variant would drive up infections. “It’s very hard to separate community transmission that is related to schools, to transmission in schools. UNITED STATESIn the United States, the number of children’s cases has grown as a percentage of overall cases, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics. The state’s school districts were already struggling with staff shortages before COVID-19 cases and quarantines, Shoulta said. The state has had fewer than half of the number of school or district closures as Kentucky, according to Burbio.

Sweden's chief epidemiologist said Sweden's no-lockdown strategy led to low excess mortality. Experts have been critical of Sweden's response to the pandemic. Sweden's chief epidemiologist stood by the country's approach to the pandemic, even after facing fierce criticism from experts and the King of Sweden. Tegnell admitted that Sweden made assumptions about the level of immunity needed to control the virus that were not attainable. Insider previously reported that experts criticized Sweden's approach.

Certainly the number of Covid cases being recorded daily in the West remains high, and even resembles earlier peaks at different points, or Covid waves, during the pandemic. In total, more than 40 million Covid cases have been counted in the U.S. since the pandemic began. Hospitalizations in the U.S. remain high, data from Our World in Data show. CNBC asked epidemiologists based in Britain why cases remain so high given the relatively high vaccination rates in the West. Australia announced at the end of August that it was abandoning such a policy, however, given the spread of the highly infectious delta variant.

New U.S. vaccine requirements draw praise, skepticism and outrage. The European Union approved coronavirus vaccines for use in children older than 11 in May. Both the European Union and the United States approved the Pfizer vaccine for use in children 12 and over in May. They have not approved any coronavirus vaccines for children younger than 12.

Seven charts show the realities of the COVID-19 pandemic over the last 18 months. Katelyn Jetelina is an assistant epidemiology professor at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. Epidemiologists were scrambling, left to rely on volunteers to report national level public health data because there was no centralized public health data system in the U.S. Public health officials were scrambling to enact safety recommendations and contact trace because of limited resources. And not just pretty good vaccines – vaccines that blew efficacy out of the water. And by removing politics from public health, science might be able to infiltrate echo chambers instead of feeding them.

Live Covid Live Updates: Scientists Say Biden’s Vaccine Mandates Will Need Time to Slow the Pandemic India curbs crowds at religious festivals to avoid third wave as festivals in September and October are typically huge draws. Will vaccine mandates slow the pandemic? “It’s a lot quicker to put on a mask than it is to get a bunch of people vaccinated,” Dr. Hanage said. “We cannot always know what the future holds, but we do know what we owe our children,” Dr. Biden said on Friday. On Monday, Representative Jim Jordan, Republican of Ohio, tweeted that vaccine mandates were “un-American.” In reality, they are a time-honored American tradition.

People wait in a queue to receive the vaccine against coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outside a cinema hall in Mumbai, India, August 17, 2021. India last month approved its first COVID-19 shot for people under 18, though as of now only adults are being immunised. The federal government has largely left it to states to decide when to reopen schools. Most parents wanted schools to reopen as soon as possible, it said. "Therefore, I believe that the technical experts should not rush to recommend vaccination of adolescents in India.

The World Health Organization condemned wealthy nations for stockpiling coronavirus vaccines, treatments and protective equipment, adding that their failure to fairly distribute those resources is fueling Covid outbreaks worldwide. The criticism from two of the WHO's top epidemiologists came during a Q&A streamed Tuesday on the organization's social media channels. "This is not just unfair, it's not just immoral, it's prolonging the pandemic," said Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove, the WHO's technical lead on Covid. The U.S., which has fully immunized 53% of its population, has already administered booster shots to more than 1.3 million people. The European Union has fully inoculated 57% of its population and is administering booster doses in France and the U.K., according to the United Nations.

Particularly as many Covid preventative measures have been relaxed and cases are rising in both the U.S. and parts of Europe. "This high transmission is deeply worrying — particularly in the light of low vaccination uptake in priority populations in a number of countries," Kluge said. This, in turn, could allow new variants to emerge, which could weaken the efficacy of the existing Covid vaccines. There is a wide divergence in rates of Covid vaccine acceptance and hesitancy in the U.S. and Europe. Vaccine uptake is traditionally high in the U.K. and Spain, a factor that has facilitated Covid vaccination programs, while France has seen a much more pervasive hesitancy toward the Covid vaccine.
