  2. Why Are COVID-19 Cases Really Falling? Photo illustration by Slate. Photos by BirdHunter591/iStock/Getty Images Plus and ffikretow/iStock/Getty Images Plus. After climbing the grim upward slope of an epidemic curve that seemed destined to rise forever, we find ourselves somewhat unexpectedly sliding down the other side, with cases in the U.S. declining at such a steep rate it almost seems too good to be true: They’ve gone from a peak of 300,000 new cases per day on Jan. 2 to 62,000 on Tuesday. Just as with each steep rise in cases in the spring and fall, scientist
  3. Can nasal sprays help in the fight against Covid-19? A study in Israel found that nasal sprays can help to prevent coronavirus infections. Here is everything you need to know... A study in Israel suggested that they could stop infection Scientists are working round the clock to develop game-changing new treatments in the fight against Covid-19. One unlikely candidate to emerge is nasal sprays. This week, it was revealed that out of 83 worshippers who attended a Jewish festival in Bnei Brak and were given nasal sprays, only two contracted co
  4. How did Chile get so many people vaccinated against Covid-19? If you look at the data on vaccine rollouts across Latin America, there’s one clear outlier: Chile. The country has vaccinated just over 12% of its population, putting it just behind the US and well ahead of all of its neighbors, according to national figures compiled by Our World in Data. Chile started out with a few advantages. It doesn’t have a massive population like China (there are just 19 million Chileans) or a vast, impenetrable landmass like Russia or Brazil. It’s a relatively wealthy natio
  5. If you’re vaccinated against COVID-19, you won’t have to quarantine if you’re exposed As long as you don’t develop any symptoms Photo by Michael M. Santiago/Getty Images People who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and don’t have any symptoms don’t have to quarantine if they’re exposed to someone with the disease, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in new guidelines released today. They should still follow other public health guidelines, like wearing a mask. Someone is considered fully vaccinated if it has been

Australian Open lead-up events thrown into chaos after hotel worker tests positive for COVID-19 Key points: The infected man last worked at the Grand Hyatt on January 29 Up to 600 players and officials will isolate until receiving a negative test result Premier Daniel Andrews said the grand slam would go ahead Australia's Nick Kyrgios was supposed to be in action against Croatia's Borna Coric.(AAP: Dave Hunt) Thursday's matches at Australian Open warm-up events in Melbourne Park have been cancelled after a hotel quarantine
  7. Why you're seeing COVID-19 vaccine selfies all over Facebook and Twitter Misinformation on vaccines has run rampant on the internet, but some people are hoping vaccine selfies could help open a dialogue with skeptics. Jon Chapman isn't turning into a mutant. The 38-year-old medical laboratory scientist from Iowa City got his first COVID-19 vaccination the Monday before Christmas, and aside from a sore arm, he felt fine. Since then, he hasn't grown a tail, he doesn't have scales and -- so far -- there's no sign of wings. He wanted his friends and family to know thi
  8. Can Robots and Drones Help to Fight COVID-19? Using drones to help make our living and working spaces a little safer is not too much of a stretch. ROMAN SAMBORSKYI/SHUTTERSTOCK.COM It’s great news that people are finally starting to get vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus. I hope that the current rollout problems get worked out soon so that everyone can get access to this potentially life-saving vaccine. But we also need to temper our excitement some, because it will be a long time before things get back to normal, if they ever do. A recent National Geograp
  9. Are Mass Clinics the Solution for Covid-19 Vaccination? Mega-sites need a lot of personnel and pose problems of access and equity. But other vaccination campaigns might point us in the right direction. Photograph: Bing Guan/Bloomberg/Getty Images The rollout of the Covid-19 vaccine is going badly. Delivering more doses faster is central to the 200-page White House Covid-19 plan, which was released last week, one day after President Joe Biden took office.
  10. Stop Ignoring the Evidence on Covid-19 Treatments The studies are in, and for many patients convalescent plasma should be out. So why do doctors having such a hard time letting go? Illustration: WIRED; Getty Images Thanks to Twitter, you can now watch a doctor’s heart break in real time. Like everyone else, we’ve often made our feelings plain during the pandemic—our despondence over all the deaths, our anger over their preventability—but there’s another
  11. (Reuters) - The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated cloud adoption by companies by several years, Amazon.com Inc’s cloud head Andy Jassy said on Tuesday. Jassy, who leads Amazon Web Services (AWS), made the remarks at the company’s re:Invent conference, a marketing event for its cloud services. Among several announcements, AWS launched a new chip called Trainium at the event, taking aim at Nvidia Corp’s core business of offering powerful chips to train machine learning algorithms. The chip will complement Amazon’s Inferentia computing chip, which
  12. Bloomberg) -- India entered an unprecedented recession with the economy contracting in the three months through September due to the lingering effects of lockdowns to contain the Covid-19 outbreak. Gross domestic product declined 7.5% last quarter from a year ago, the Statistics Ministry said Friday. That was milder than an 8.2% drop forecast by economists in a Bloomberg survey, and and a marked improvement from a record 24% contraction the previous quarter. Prime Minister Narendra Modi imposed one of the world’s strictest lockdowns in March, sapping
  13. Can a balance be struck between the privacy of citizens and allowing health officials to access any piece of information for helping to track down a cluster of coronavirus cases? This piece comes to you from the mostly coronavirus-free shores of Australia. But the virus is still not eliminated; various places can have an extended run of virus-free days, which can then turn into weeks and months, before the virus suddenly comes back. There is no better example of this than the reemergence of COVID-19 in New Zealand back in August, after the nation went 100 d
  14. (Reuters) - Tesla Inc Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk said on Saturday he “most likely” has a moderate case of COVID-19, as he continued to question the accuracy of the tests. "Am getting wildly different results from different labs, but most likely I have a moderate case of covid. My symptoms are that of a minor cold, which is no surprise, since a coronavirus is a type of cold," Musk wrote in a tweet. He did not mention whether the results were from polymerase chain reaction tests, which are more accurate than rapid tests. "A little up & do
  15. Jenny Hamilton, 57, is a former police officer who now works in location security for the film industry and lives in Atlanta. She's a participant in the Pfizer vaccine trial, which recently developed the world's first effective coronavirus vaccine in record time. After receiving the first two injections, Hamilton says she experienced what felt like a cold — low-grade fevers, fatigue, and muscle aches. Hamilton kept a diary of her symptoms and found it comforting when a study coordinator would call or text to see how she was feeling; she'll continue to keep the diary for two
  16. Pfizer's experimental coronavirus vaccine succeeded in the final stage of clinical trials, the drugmaker said Monday, a milestone in society's fight against the pandemic. Developing an effective vaccine against a brand-new virus in less than a year is an unprecedented feat in medicine. The study found people who got Pfizer's shot were less likely to develop COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus. The drugmaker said the shot was found to be more than 90% effective in preventing COVID-19. Pfizer described the results in a press release. The trial is still ongoing
  17. Linux Foundation launched a public health unit in July to use open source software to combat the coronavirus pandemic and future epidemics. The foundation now has two apps: COVID Green, which is built by NearForm developers in Ireland, and COVID Shield, which is built by Shopify developers in Canada. Currently, contact tracing apps are not widely used, but the general manager of the initiative is optimistic that adoption will improve thanks to this tech. People wearing protective face masks use a smartphone on a street in Kiev The Linux Foundation has
  18. A new report fresh from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention highlights the stark difference between covid-19 and the seasonal flu. For hospitalized patients, the report found, the risk of serious complications like pneumonia and shock was significantly higher from covid-19 than from the flu. People hospitalized with covid-19 were over five times more likely to die than hospitalized flu patients. The analysis, published Tuesday as an early release in the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, looked at medical records from hospitalized patients who had
  19. In higher education, the rapid move to remote learning last spring followed by a need to plan for a certain fluid fall semester opened up endless opportunities for information technology teams and their leadership to flail reactively and over-invest in systems, solutions and widgets. But, did they? A top question asked of chief information officers today is, “Of the technology investments made since Covid-19, what will those investments look like in one year, three years, five years? Will they still be in use?” At a time where higher education technology de
  20. The COVID-19 outreach is turning out to be not only health, social, and economic hazard but also a cybersecurity crisis. The pandemic has presented new challenges for businesses in the areas of remote collaboration and business continuity. With increased remote working for better business continuity, employees are using numerous Internet tools. As businesses and people have started relying more on technology and are busy fighting with the pandemic, the attackers now have plenty of options to target them more than ever. According to PWC's April report, the n
  21. A Nevada man got COVID-19 twice, and the second time was ‘more severe’ In this Aug. 27, 2020, file photo, people wearing face masks walk through the atrium during the reopening of the Mirage hotel and casino in Las Vegas. A Nevada man caught the novel coronavirus twice, and the second infection was reportedly worse than the first one, according to BBC News.

  22. ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo condemned the federal government's coronavirus response and lauded his own leadership efforts in a new book released Tuesday that offers a few new details — but not many — about New York’s battle against the pandemic. The Democrat's book, “American Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic,” delivers a retelling of his efforts to contain the virus as it ravaged his state in spring. In it, Cuomo describes tryin
  23. Back in March, as the covid-19 pandemic took over the planet, Apple finally told users that it’s okay to use some disinfecting wipes on their iPhones. At the time, transmission risks were opaque and it was better to be safe than sorry. In the meantime, we’ve learned that saliva droplets in the air pose the clearest risk for transmitting the virus, and we may have become a little careless when it comes to being mindful of surface transmission risks. New research from Australia’s CSIRO science agency found that under lab conditions, covid-19 was much sturdier tha
