Elton John Donates $1 Million to AIDS Foundation’s Coronavirus Emergency Fund 

 

Elton John is launching a $1 million coronavirus emergency relief fund through his AIDS Foundation, he announced on Saturday.

“For almost 30 years, my foundation has prioritized the most vulnerable people to HIV to end the AIDS epidemic, and we’re committed to this during the COVID-19 crisis, too. Distributing medicines, testing and preventive treatment is not as simple as it was a few weeks ago. So, our new COVID-19 emergency fund will help frontline partners prepare for and respond to the pandemic and its effects on HIV prevention and care for the most marginalized communities,” he said in a video posted to his Twitter account.

Plant Disease Primarily Spreads Via Roadsides 

 

An analysis based on mathematical statistics more precise than those previously carried out uncovered the reason why powdery mildew fungi on Åland are most abundant in roadsides and crossings. Identified as the specific cause was that traffic raises the spores found on roadsides efficiently into the air.

The researchers are interested in disease transmission, as it helps explain the occurrence and biology of diseases. There are plant diseases that spread along riversides, bird migration routes, ocean currents or, for example, air traffic networks, much like human diseases that spread through social networks.

The transmission process determines the abundance and location of occurrence, while the method of transmission determines how the diversity of the disease branches off temporally and spatially, and, in the end, how the disease evolves through natural selection.

Coronavirus and work: Fla. employee says she was fired after asking to work from home 

 

A Tallahassee, Florida, worker says she was fired from her job after she asked to work from home amid coronavirus concerns.

Katherine Webster, 25, has an autoimmune illness called interstitial cystitis, and her 9-year-old son has diabetes and asthma.

As health authorities advise social distancing and local schools close through March, the local mom was afraid of potentially getting the virus from the office and bringing it home to her already-ill son.

She's a project engineer for Tower Construction Management, which is contracted by Robert Finvarb Companies to build the interior of the AC Hotel by Marriott being constructed as part of the Cascades Project, a $158 million mixed-use development in downtown Tallahassee.

Elderly Woman ‘In Tears’ At Empty Supermarket Highlights Panic Buying Crisis 

 

Countries around the world have witnessed unprecedented panic buying at supermarkets and pharmacies due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Aisles have been stripped bare every day as many try to get enough food to last them through a two week self-isolation.

However, there have been some people who have been greedier than others.

As a result, loads of shoppers have been left to get whatever is left and, in some cases, leave nearly empty handed with no idea how they'll get their groceries.

That was highlighted in a heartbreaking picture of an elderly woman in Australia standing in front of cleared out shelves that used to hold canned foods.

Channel 9's Seb Costello shared the picture on social media of the devastating reality that is facing many people across Australia and the world.

He reported the woman was left in tears at the bare aisles.

Parental diet affects sperm and health of future offspring 

 

When parents eat low-protein or high-fat diets it can lead to metabolic disorders in their adult offspring. Now, an international team led by researchers at the RIKEN Cluster for Pioneering Research (CPR) have identified a key player and the molecular events underlying this phenomenon in mice.

The Developmental Origins of Health and Disease is a school of thought that focuses on how prenatal factors such as stress and diet impact the development of diseases when children reach adulthood. Experimental evidence indicates that environmental factors that affect parents do play a role in reprogramming the health of their offspring throughout their lifespan. In particular, parental low-protein diets are known to be related to metabolic disorders in their children, such as diabetes.

The People Ignoring Social Distancing 

 

As the coronavirus pandemic has spread in the United States, public-health experts have lately been urging people—especially young people, many of whom may not show symptoms, and spread the virus unknowingly—to limit their physical contacts with others, but Andrew described a raucous scene that seems out of step with this moment of worldwide panic and caution. “They knew what was going on and they didn’t care—they were going to keep hugging and high-fiving,” he said. “Personally, I probably was in contact with, like, a thousand people over Friday and Saturday night, and I can only wash my hands so many times.” (Andrew asked to have his last name and the name of his workplace omitted from this article, so that he wouldn’t suffer any negative repercussions.)

Celebrities, Politicians, and Other Notable Figures Who Have Tested Positive for Coronavirus 

 

As the weeks go by, it's become clear that no one is safe from the global coronavirus pandemic. With over 182,000 cases worldwide, everyone from athletes to celebrities have discovered that they tested positive for COVID-19. While it can feel like those in Hollywood would never fall prey to this virus for whatever reason, recent revelations from Tom Hanks and Idris Elba have proven that this couldn't be further from the truth.

Scroll down to see which notable figures have come forward after testing positive for coronavirus.

Using tote bags instead of plastic could help spread the coronavirus 

 

The COVID-19 outbreak is giving new meaning to those “sustainable” shopping bags that politicians and environmentalists have been so eager to impose on the public. These reusable tote bags can sustain the COVID-19 and flu viruses — and spread the viruses throughout the store.

Researchers have been warning for years about the risks of these bags spreading deadly viral and bacterial diseases, but public officials have ignored their concerns, determined to eliminate single-use bags and other plastic products despite their obvious advantages in reducing the spread of pathogens. In New York state, a new law took effect this month banning single-use plastic bags in most retail businesses, and this week Democratic state legislators advanced a bill that would force coffee shops to accept consumers’ reusable cups — a practice that Starbucks and other chains have wisely suspended to avoid spreading the COVID-19 virus.

John Flanagan, the Republican leader of the New York state Senate, has criticized the new legislation and called for a suspension of the law banning plastic bags. “Senate Democrats’ desperate need to be green is unclean during the coronavirus outbreak,” he said Tuesday, but so far he’s been a lonely voice among public officials.

Margaret Court’s Church Reckons “The Blood Of Jesus” Will Protect Them From Coronavirus 
 

This week in ‘Good Ideas’, sub-category ‘What Could Possibly Go Wrong?’, Margaret Court and her congregation have declared that they are safe from the coronavirus pandemic because the blood of Jesus will protect them.

The Victory Life Church released a statement to followers yesterday, saying that daily prayers and additional hand sanitiser are the only measures they’ll take to combat the rapidly-spreading disease.

Quarantine the cat? Disinfect the dog? The latest advice about the coronavirus and your pets 

 

When a Pomeranian in Hong Kong tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 last week, pets quickly became part of the coronavirus conversation. The case raised the alarming possibility that pets could become part of the transmission chain for the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, which could potentially harm both them and us. But many questions remain about this possibility and how best to respond.

Q: Can pets serve as a reservoir of the virus and pass it back to us?

A: If pets can become infected—and we don’t know if they can—then yes, they could serve as a reservoir. And in that case, we’d need to deal with them the same way we’re dealing with human cases. We’d need to figure how to treat them. Like human hospitals, vet hospitals would have to be prepared for a surge in the number of cases.

Q: Would we quarantine our pets too?

A: Yes, just like humans, some might be quarantined at a hospital. Or a shelter. Or even a doggy day care. If they had the virus but weren’t sick, you could quarantine them at home. You’d want to limit your contact with them. Perhaps keep them in a bedroom away from other people and animals. You’d want to wash your hands frequently, and perhaps wear a mask when you entered the room.

Coronavirus: Three more people test positive in Coachella Valley 

 

Officials announced three positive cases in the Coachella Valley on Monday afternoon. Health investigators believe the three infections were the result of contact with a known case or travel into areas where the coronavirus has been detected, according to Riverside County health officials. Two of the people have been isolated at home and the third is being cared for at a local hospital.

Health officials also announced Monday morning that a second Riverside County resident tested positive for coronavirus on a cruise ship. Jeff Van Wageman, Riverside County assistant county executive officer for public safety, said the patient was a passenger on a Diamond Princess cruise ship and is being treated in Northern California.

Officials announced the county's first case of locally acquired coronavirus on Saturday. That patient is undergoing care at Eisenhower Health in Rancho Mirage. Health officials declined to disclose details about the patient, including how and when the virus was contracted. Riverside County Public Health Officer Cameron Kaiser said Sunday that officials are still investigating the source of contraction, which they hope to complete in a couple days but it may be a case of "community spread." The patient has no connection to schools in Riverside County, Kaiser said.

France urges people to stop double-cheek kisses to prevent coronavirus 

 

Sacre bleu!

France is urging people to cut back on the customary double-cheek kiss in order to prevent the spread of the deadly coronavirus.

Health Minister Olivier Véran advised the country Saturday to refrain the traditional greeting known as “la bise,” in which people give kisses, or air kisses, on both cheeks.

“The reduction in social contacts of a physical nature is advised. That includes the practice of the bise,” Veran said at a press conference.

Coronavirus Containment Efforts in the U.S. Could Disrupt 'People's Day-to-Day Lives,' CDC Warns 

 

As the number of people infected with a novel coronavirus known as COVID-19 has ticked up worldwide—totaling more than 80,000 as of Tuesday afternoon—the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has routinely emphasized that the risk to Americans remains relatively low.

But that tone changed somewhat during a call with reporters Tuesday, when Dr. Nancy Messonnier, Director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases warned that community spread appears imminent, and disruption to U.S. communities could be significant.

“It is not a question of if coronavirus will spread through the United States,” Messonnier said, “but a question of when and how many people will have severe illness.”

So far, person-to-person spread of COVID-19 has been minimal in the U.S. Most confirmed cases have been among Americans who traveled to areas where COVID-19 is more widespread, and these people have been treated and isolated accordingly. That’s crucial to the containment of disease, as spread within communities greatly increases the total number of cases and the likelihood that transmission will multiply.

Having This Number Of Sexual Partners Can Increase Your Risk Of Cancer 

 

Needless to say, having multiple sex partners increases one’s likelihood of developing HIV or several other sexually transmitted diseases. But, a recent study reported that the number of sexual partners you have might be linked to your risk of developing cancer.

Per the new study published in BMJ Sexual & Reproductive Health, the number of prior sexual partners may be a new risk factor, at least if the number is more than 10.

Study: Gay, Bi Men Have Higher Skin Cancer Rates Than Straight Men 

 

Gay and bisexual men have elevated rates of skin cancer compared to heterosexual men, according to an inclusive study from Boston's Brigham and Women's Hospital.

The data was culled from 2014 to 2018, with respondents in 37 states. Researchers found that rates of self-reported skin cancer were 8.1 percent among gay men and 8.4 percent among bisexual men — higher than the rate of 6.7 percent among straight men. Skin cancer rates were 5.9 percent among lesbians, lower than the 6.6 percent rate among heterosexual women; bisexual women were found to have some of the lowest rates of skin cancer at 4.7 percent.

The causes of the elevated rates among gay and bi men — whether because of factors like HIV, health disparities, or lifestyle decisions — were not made clear in the study. A study published last year found that tanning salons often operate in neighborhoods where many gay and bisexual men live. Researchers at Brigham and Women's Hospital hope to next study causation factors.
