    COLLECTORS love a rare and valuable note, especially if it's something that could be easily lurking undiscovered in your wallet or purse. Most of the time, that's very much the case, as something that can make a fiver worth more than a fiver, could be a simple as the small print on the design. 6A simple fiver could be worth as much as £300 to the right person Sometimes it's a case of the serial number printed spelling out an innuendo, or it's the first of its batch. Similarly more retro copies can fetch a pretty penny with traders and sellers too. From new to old though, a number of rare and valuable fivers have made their way into the public's hands. While some may not even be technically worth their own denomination in value as they've fallen out of being legal tender, keen collectors on eBay are willing to auction rare £5 notes that they claim to be valuable. Spot one yourself with a noticeable quirk and you could be quids-in too. Remember, if you're selling on eBay then...
    A RARE sexually transmitted disease (STI) that can cause your skin to decay is on the rise in England, one expert has warned. Donovanosis is thought to be more common in places like India, and South Africa but cases are starting to creep up in England. 1The rare STI can destroy your skin if it's not treated quickly and one expert said cases are on the up in EnglandCredit: Getty The bacterial infection can be transmitted by contact and if you catch it - it can cause your skin to to be destroyed unless it's swiftly treated. Before the coronavirus pandemic swept the UK, cases of the virus had been on the rise, data from Public Health England (PHE) shows. Total reported instances across the country swelled from 19 in 2016 to 30 in 2019. Even during the pandemic and related lockdowns, there were still 18 cases in England. The STI is also known as klebsiella granulomatis and creates lesions around the groin and genital regions which can turn into foul-smelling ulcers if infected.

    A number of pediatric hospitals across the country are warning about an increase in the number of cases of multi-system inflammatory syndrome in children, a rare condition in which different parts of the body, including the heart, lungs, kidneys, brain, skin, eyes or gastrointestinal organs, become inflamed.The uptick follows the country's most recent summer delta surge in pediatric infections.MIS-C, which most often appears four to six weeks after a COVID-19 infection, can be serious and potentially deadly, but most children who are diagnosed with it recover with medical care, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.Federal data shows that there have been at least 46 confirmed MIS-C deaths and 5,217 confirmed MIS-C cases -- and about 61% of the reported cases have occurred in children who are Hispanic/Latino or Black. Children between the ages of 6 to 11, who may soon be eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine, have reported the highest number of MIS-C cases since the onset of the pandemic.MORE: Pfizer officially asks FDA to greenlight vaccine for kids under 12 EMBED More News Videos Pfizer said...
    A small number of COVID-19 patients have mystified the medical field after they reportedly developed gigantic tongues, according to KHOU 11. The COVID-19 patients developed macroglossia, a condition that causes the tongue to enlarge and prevents patients from eating or talking, according to KHOU 11. Houston doctors have attempted to understand the causes of this condition. Dr. James Melville, from the UTHealth School of Dentistry, explained that patients who survived COVID-19 had inflammatory cells in their tongue tissue, which makes some people more prone to macroglossia. “I think it has a lot to do with where the virus is attaching itself and the body’s immune response to it,” Melville told KHOU 11. Melville, who performs surgeries to heal those affected by macroglossia, said he has heard of nine patients, each of which were intubated at the hospital, with this rare condition. Health care workers use a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine on a Covid-19 patient who is having difficulties breathing in a Covid-19 holding pod at Providence St. Mary Medical Center in Apple Valley, California on January 11, 2021....
    A preservative in the AstraZeneca vaccine could trigger an overreaction from the immune system that leads to blood clots, a scientist has claimed. Tiny numbers of people given the jab or the one made by Johnson & Johnson developed a clotting condition that spooked some countries into turning their backs on it. The reasons for this have been unclear but one researcher in Germany has suggested it could begin with a chemical used to make the vaccine.  EDTA, known scientifically as ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid, might trigger an immune overreaction by forming clumps using platelets in the bloodstream.  EDTA, which is commonly used in medicines, cosmetics, cleaning products and metal processing, could make more vaccine ingredients leak into blood vessels – the jab is given into the muscle. There, they could make the body over-produce antibodies and trigger a second reaction from the immune system which then starts clotting blood. MHRA medical regulators in the UK have spotted 242 cases of the clots after 28.5million doses of the AstraZeneca jab in 22.6m people – around one in 100,000. The clots remain rare...
    By Maria Cheng | Associated Press LONDON — The European Union’s drug regulatory agency said Tuesday that it found a “possible link” between Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine and extremely rare blood clots and recommended a warning be added to the label. But experts at the agency reiterated that the vaccine’s benefits outweigh the risks. The European Medicines Agency made its determination after examining a small number of clot cases in people vaccinated in the U.S. It said these problems should be considered “very rare side effects of the vaccine.” J&J immediately announced it will revise its label as requested and resume vaccine shipments to the EU, Norway and Iceland. In a statement, it said: “The safety and well-being of the people who use our products is our number one priority.” Following the EMA’s decision, EU Health and Food Safety Commissioner Stella Kyriakides tweeted that vaccinations save lives and added: “I urge Member States to follow the opinion of our experts.”
    Two prominent doctors have emphasized the very few cases of blood clots in Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine patients after the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that they would pause its administration. “I believe the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is exceedingly safe. These are very rare events,” Dr. Ashish Jha of the Brown University School of Public Health told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos on Tuesday. “I think the Johnson & Johnson vaccine is both terrific in its efficacy and exceedingly safe based on everything I know.” “I’d feel comfortable having my family get it,” Jha continued, although he did say that he believes the CDC and FDA made the right decision in pausing vaccinations. Six patients out of the nearly seven million who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine developed a blood clot called a cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST), public health officials announced Tuesday. All six are women between the ages of 18 and 48, and the clots developed between six and 13 days after receiving the vaccine. One...
    We're number one! And number two! And four and five! This week, U.S. News & World Report released its list of the "150 Best Places to Live in the U.S. in 2020-21," one of those rare listicle efforts that actually gets some respect. And this round, Colorado cities took four of the five top spots in the country. Boulder ranked first and Denver second; Colorado Springs came in fourth and Fort Collins fifth. The only city to stop a Colorado sweep was Austin, which placed third. In their Facebook comments on our story about Colorado's near sweep, some readers applauded...and some demanded a recount.

    Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) on Monday sounded off on the Democrats’ push for post office legislation to support vote-by-mail in the upcoming 2020 elections amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Republicans have pushed back against mail-in voting because of the increased possibility of voter fraud, but Booker told CNN’s “New Day” he is “confident” voter fraud “is rare” in states that utilize vote-by-mail. “It is infinitesimally small, and one of the reasons why mail-in balloting fraud is so easy to catch as even Mitt Romney pointed out from Utah is that there is a paper trail. You can compare signatures,” Booker argued. “It is very hard with all the information you have that it takes to go through voting by mail to pull off any kind of fraud.” “So, New Jersey, people try to cheat, and they were caught as often will happen when you try to do something like that,” he continued. “And so I’m very confident, number one, that this is rare. Number two, if people try it, it will be caught. And number three, we have the evidence...
