    The Queen didn't want 'pomp and ceremony for herself' and simply wanted to be buried next to her father - 'but she recognised the role she played', according to royal experts. Her late Majesty, who died at Balmoral aged 96, was laid to rest in a moving private ceremony at Windsor's King George VI Memorial Chapel on Monday night - following a huge and prestigious public funeral at Westminster Abbey. But one royal commentator has speculated that the Queen wouldn't have wanted such a service and only agreed to it out of duty.  Royal biographer Penny Junor told People: 'She wouldn't have wanted that pomp and ceremony for herself, but she recognised the role she played... Even in death, she was still serving.'  The Queen's final resting place has been marked with a simple slab reuniting her for eternity with her adored husband Prince Philip and her parents King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother. Historian Robert Hardman, author of Queen of Our Times: The Life of Elizabeth II, said: 'She had no wish to see a statue of herself or to even...

    Believe it or not, you might want to skip rinsing the toothpaste out of your mouth after brushing your teeth to get the full benefits of fluoride. According to a piece in CNET by Katie Teague, she discovered after watching a dentist’s video on TikTok that rinsing your mouth with water after brushing your teeth is not very effective. She began to simply spit out as much toothpaste as she could without swishing water so that the toothpaste could sit for a little longer. However, she still did not exactly understand why. That’s when she decided to speak with Dr. Edmond Hewlett, consumer advisor for the American Dental Association and professor at UCLA School of Dentistry. Source: Electric Teeth/YouTube According to Dr. Hewlett, it’s important to skip rinsing with water after brushing your teeth because fluoride helps make the enamel harder and more resistant to acids that cause cavities. He says that it is the most well-established effective ingredient in toothpaste, so you should always be sure yours has that ingredient in it. “When you measure a person’s...
    FOR those of us without a green thumb, the end of summer seems like the beginning of the for plant life. However, gardening experts have revealed the best time for seeding your lawn is quickly approaching. 2Gardening experts have revealed the exact time of year you should be seeding your lawnCredit: Getty The experts at Homes & Gardens have revealed the perfect time of year to begin seeding your lawn. Fall is the ideal time of year to overseed your lawn, according to Rachel Crow, the garden editor for Homes & Gardens.

Experts also recommend choosing a day with mild weather, and preferably after rainfall.

    In this article AMZNVIDEO5:0805:08Shift in spending habits as consumers cut backThe ExchangeAs Amazon gears up for Prime Day on July 12 and 13, shoppers may be less enthusiastic this year about the big annual sale. "The explosive sort of growth year over year that we've seen with Prime Day, we may not see that any longer," said Nathan Burrow, senior deals editor at Wirecutter. For starters, soaring inflation has led to higher prices across the board, causing consumers to cut back on spending and become more wary of the kind of impulse shopping those intermittent "Lightning Deals" are designed to encourage.

    Whether you're on the receiving end of it or the one responsible, snoring is the cause of bad sleep, exhaustion the next day and arguments with your partner who is also feeling irritable and bleary-eyed after a disturbed night.  Snoring such an inconvenient ailment that a deep dive on the internet will reveal countless weird and wonderful cures, but there's so much misinformation about what can either alleviate or make your snoring worse.

    Eat all of your meals in a 12-hour window if you want to live longer, scientists say. Restricting the food intake of mice to the most active hours of their day extended their lifespans by a third. Whereas solely restricting calories only helped them live for 10 per cent longer, on average. It suggests the combination of sticking to a low-calorie diet and fasting is optimal for longevity. Researchers claimed the findings show if you are dieting but eating late at night then you are not getting 'the full benefits'. Eating within a strict time window, known as intermittent fasting diet, has become one of the hottest fitness fads in recent years. A-listers such as Jennifer Aniston and Nicole Kidman are said to be followers of intermittent fasting.

    ONE bride wants a Harry Potter-themed wedding and insists on having an owl as the ring bearer - but experts say it's a risky move. Reddit user Grouchy_Shelter_5221 works with owls and puts on falconry shows. 1One bride's desire for a Harry Potter-themed wedding calls for live owls One of the Redditor's friends turned to them when they were planning a Harry Potter-themed wedding. The idea was to have an owl be the ring bearer and fly the rings down the aisle at the ceremony, Newsweek reports. Grouchy_Shelter was skeptical, warning that there's a risk the birds wouldn't be able to perform the task despite training. They wrote: "Now, in theory, this could be done after all 9 times out of 10 they'll do exactly as I want it's just the 1 time I'm worried about and I don't exactly want to take that risk with wedding rings." Instead, the Redditor offered to bring some of the owls to the ceremony for photo opportunities and a quick falconry show. But, their pal wasn't thrilled with the idea. Most read in...
    'Agony aunts' have long dolled out hard truths from the pages of a magazine, but the TikTok generation is seeking out a new brand of social media-savvy agony aunt (and uncles) who are on hand to offer validation and reassurance, rather than tough love.  Rather than writing into their favourite columnist, Gen Z find their agony aunts on podcasts, Instagram and TikTok. Often the advice isn't dished out by a qualified therapist, but by an influencer who has carved out a niche.  Their poster girl is an American TikTok user named Tinx, whose videos have been 'liked' 80million times. Therapist Caroline Plumer told FEMAIL that while Gen Z are more willing to open up about their emotions than their predecessors, they still feel 'embarrassed' about their feelings so shy away from opening up to friends.  She added young people may feel validated by having high-profile influencers giving their problems attention, and that users can get gratification instantly using their phone, in the same way they would with a taxi or takeaway, rather than wait for counselling.  Meanwhile Nadine Pfeifer, founder and...
    Mariupol, Ukraine (CNN)Even in the 21st century, warfare is affected by weather -- and that may become a factor in any Russian offensive into Ukraine. The question on the lips of Ukrainians, and maybe Russian generals: "Has Rasputitsa come early?"Rasputitsa is the term for the mud of spring, when travel in Russia and Ukraine by road becomes more difficult. Usually its impact is most felt in March, as the snows begin to melt. So far, this winter has been unseasonably mild in much of Ukraine. As CNN drove from the eastern port city of Mariupol to Zaporizhzia in central Ukraine on February 1, it began to rain. The driver shrugged in disbelief. "Should be snow," he laughed.In Zaporizhzia, crusted banks of snow were melting into a trickle of brown water. Even at midnight, as a shroud of mist lay over the River Dnieper, the temperature hovered at freezing. Sleet turned to drizzle and back again. A road connecting eastern Ukraine to the center is surrounded by snow that is thinning in warmer-than-usual weather. Military analysts are debating whether a...
    (CNN)Lauren Reynolds started crying when she found out her university was shuttering the early childhood and elementary education program she was in. One of the last three students in the program, she will graduate in spring.Oklahoma City University officials announced they were suspending the programs in 2020 after a worrying pattern of declining enrollment -- one that's part of a national trend. US teacher prep programs have reported shrinking enrollment numbers over at least the past decade. Experts are sounding the alarm: The educator profession -- a critical cornerstone of American life -- is in crisis. "As more and more teachers retire, we need to have others fill that role and right now, the numbers are not looking good for us," said Heather Sparks, director of Teacher Education at Oklahoma City University.

    New case rates of COVID-19 are dropping from record highs fueled by the omicron variant, causing some to wonder when pandemic mitigation measures can begin lifting. However, experts from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health warn more time may be needed. When mask mandates for public spaces indoors and inside schools could be lifted was among topics discussed during a Thursday webinar hosted by the Baltimore school. “Right now is not the time to do that,” said Dr. Crystal Watson, senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security and assistant professor for the Department of Environmental Health and Engineering at the School of Public Health. “For many communities, we are at or above 100 cases per 100,000 per day, and what we want to get down to is more in the in the range below 10. Below one is really where we want to be,” she said. As of Thursday, per 100,000 people, Virginia’s 14-day average for new COVID-19 cases is 84; in D.C. it is 37 and in Maryland 31.

    SEX in space is just one of the many challenges experts need to investigate if humans are to travel on longer missions. According to Nasa, no human has ever had sex in space but scientists know from other studies that issues like a low sex drive and erectile dysfunction could plague astronauts. 1Conditions in space mean humans wouldn't be able to have sex like they do on EarthCredit: Getty The weightlessness of space is said to cause hormonal changes that could decrease a person's sex drive. There's also the issue of gravity not being there to stop your partner being pushed away from you. Here's some of the theories scientists have on how sex in space could be made possible. Having sex like dolphins German astronaut Ulrich Walter wrote a book called 'Höllenritt durch Raum und Zeit (A hell ride through time and space)', which discusses sex in space.

    Experts who praised the president's first year in office say the post-pandemic economic recovery and U.S. foreign relations, among other things, hinge on what he does next. President Joe Biden notched a number of accomplishments in his first year in office, despite being met with several legislative setbacks and rule blockades. Among policy experts, the reviews are in. While numerous think tanks have hailed Biden's successes in passing a landmark stimulus bill, lowering unemployment, growing the economy, and revitalizing alliances with European nations, they have also highlighted a number of additional challenges they hope the president will meet head on before his term is up. While Biden added a record number of jobs and restored the economy to its pre-pandemic position, researchers at the left-leaning Center for American Progress have cautioned that the economy could still suffer moving forward, unless Biden is able to pass some or all of his landmark Build Back Better bill, which calls for billions in spending to combat climate change, increase education opportunities, and eradicate child...
    Laura Ingraham told viewers of "The Ingraham Angle" on Tuesday night that she was struck during Monday night’s college football title game by the accomplishments of Georgia’s Stetson Bennett, the walk-on quarterback who led the Bulldogs to victory over the Alabama Crimson Tide. "I love the story of Stetson Bennett," Ingraham said. "The Georgia quarterback epitomizes what we as Americans should be fighting for every day – the little guy who has a dream and is willing to work hard to overcome difficulties, to persist, and doesn’t give up." As Ingraham explained, Bennett wasn’t searching for special privileges when he tried to make the Georgia roster, he just wanted an opportunity to show he was good enough – and would work hard enough -- to be on the team.

    A STAGGERING 79 per cent claim their wardrobes are full of black, grey and beige clothes, research has found.

    ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Federal health experts are visiting the University of Michigan to learn more about hundreds of flu cases diagnosed by the campus health service. “While we often start to see some flu activity now, the size of this outbreak is unusual,” said Dr. Juan Luis Marquez, medical director at the Washtenaw County Health Department. There have been more than 500 cases diagnosed since Oct. 6, with 77% of those afflicted not vaccinated against the flu, the university said Monday. “Partnering with the CDC will accelerate our understanding of how this flu season may unfold regionally and nationally in the setting of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Dr. Lindsey Mortenson, medical director at University Health Service in Ann Arbor. Experts are recommending flu shots. “This outbreak doesn’t necessarily have an immediate impact on the broader local community, but it does raise concerns about what the flu season may bring,” Marquez said. © 2021 Associated Press.

    BROCKTON (CBS) – “I wanted to be as good as I could get,” said a 91-year-old getting his Moderna COVID-19 booster in Brockton Friday, just in time for the holidays. Experts say it’s a good idea. After a deep dip in COVID-19 numbers this summer, cases are creeping up again as cold weather drives people inside, and plans for gathering around turkey get underway. “We’re gathering with friends and family this Thanksgiving,” said Elyse Heise. “Everyone over 65 will have had booster shots, and all of the kids,” she said.

    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – One of the best things you can do to fight climate change? Experts say it’s planting a tree, but don’t just plant anywhere, and consider something other than a palm tree. “You have the sidewalk here and the roadway and probably what you have in between these two impervious surfaces is compact,” Lazaro Quintino, Miami-Dade Tree and Forest Resources Section Manager said.

    When an FDA advisory panel agreed Friday that only those 65 and older or otherwise at high risk of severe COVID-19 should get vaccine booster shots to bolster their immunity, Colleen Logan found herself left out of that equation. The 60-year-old Walnut Creek kindergarten teacher worries that working with kids too young for the shots puts her at risk of the deadly disease. She hoped she’d qualify soon after President Biden last month announced plans for boosters starting next week, citing evidence the vaccines’ protection is waning. But she took the panel’s recommendation in stride Saturday, trusting the experts have her best interest at heart as they hashed out whether boosters for the vaccinated will do more good than harm, a question that has divided the medical community. “I think it’s fine,” Logan said as she left a Trader Joe’s market. “I’m not the FDA, so I think they know what they’re doing.” The Food and Drug Administration panel of medical experts’ recommendation Friday wasn’t binding and applied only to the Pfizer vaccine, not those by Moderna and Johnson &...
    Two court-appointed mental health experts have determined that an accused mass shooter is not competent to stand trial in the killing of four people at a real estate office in Orange, but prosecutors plan to hire a specialist to provide a third opinion before a decision is made on whether the criminal case will move forward. Prosecutors during a hearing on Friday afternoon indicated that they are not ready to accept findings by a psychologist and a psychiatrist that Aminadab Gaxiola Gonzalez suffers from the impact of a traumatic brain injury, and want a third expert, who specializes in neurology, to weigh in on his condition. Gonzalez was struck in the head during an alleged gunfight with police after prosecutors say he carried out a mass shooting on March 31, 2021 at the offices of Unified Homes, a real estate company in Orange. His court proceedings were initially halted in early July to determine if Gonzalez is capable of understanding the charges he is facing and assist with his own defense. Gonzalez was quickly charged with special circumstances murder, but...

                        Democrats in the Pennsylvania General Assembly hope to increase monthly welfare benefits in Pennsylvania, reasoning that payments under the federally funded Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) program have stayed flat since the 1990s, falling well behind inflation.  Legislation being drafted by State Sen. Katie Muth (D-PA-Royersford) and State Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta (D-PA-Philadelphia) would increase Pennsylvania’s TANF benefits, which average $403 per month for a family of three in most counties. That amount covered 43 percent of the federal poverty level in 1990 and only covered 22 percent of the federal poverty level last year, according to a memorandum Muth sent to Senate colleagues seeking cosponsors. She and Kenyatta would hike the benefits to cover over half of the federal poverty level. Muth and Kenyatta’s effort — a long shot in the GOP-led legislature — comes in the wake of a joint report from the Black Women’s Policy Agenda, Community Legal Services of Philadelphia, the Pennsylvania Health Access Network, and Just Harvest arguing that TANF is leaving many poor...

    Yusuf Mingazov met his father Ravil—a former Russian ballet dancer—for the first time through a videocall between a Red Cross office in Britain and the Guantánamo Bay detention camp in Cuba, where he had been imprisoned for more than 14 years. “It was kind of difficult to explain the emotions and everything, but it was nice to see him because it was the first time,” said Yusuf, 22, who was born in Russia. He was just three years old when his father was arrested in Pakistan in 2002 accused of being associated with al Qaeda and the Taliban. The U.S. concluded that he was a “low level fighter”—which he denies—before clearing him for release in 2017, but he was not granted freedom. Instead, Ravil Mingazov was sent to the United Arab Emirates where he languishes in another jail cell, in arguably even worse conditions. Now, he faces the threat of being forcibly sent back to Russia where his family fears he could be detained, tortured or killed. Mingazov’s family maintains that fleeing persecution in Russia was the reason he was...
    Jim Lo Scalzo-Pool/Getty Images As overblown “Delta variant” hysteria has overtaken much of a news media desperate for Covid to remain a “pandemic” as long as possible, new positive tests have inched up to about 17,000 a day, while deaths with the virus are effectively at an all-time low at just over 200, in a country of over 330 million people. The “expert” class, led by media-darling Dr. Anthony Fauci, is now using this opportunity to instill fear in order to try to increase vaccinations, all while forwarding a narrative that it is Republicans who are causing all this trouble because they refuse to get vaccinated as often as Democrats do. Yesterday, Dr. Fauci made his normal Sunday morning TV rounds as took every chance he could to decry the obvious political divide when it comes to reactions to the pandemic in general, and vaccines in particular. There is indeed no doubt that Republicans are less likely to be vaccinated (for the record, as a life-long pre-Trump Republican, I am) and that we would be in an even better position...
    Japan's top medical experts have published a report calling for the Olympics to be held behind closed doors – setting up a collision course with organisers who want up to 10,000 fans in venues. A decision on how many domestic supporters - if any – will be allowed at the Games is set to be made as early as next week after Tokyo’s state of emergency is lifted on Sunday. Overseas spectators were banned back in March. The Japanese government has said that 10,000 spectators can attend sporting events in areas not under any restrictions, a ruling Olympic chiefs hope will include the Games in Tokyo. However, the government's coronavirus adviser, Shigeru Omi, has led a report with other medical advisers warning that holding the Olympics with fans could increase Covid infections. The experts wrote: ‘Holding with Games without spectators is the least risky option and we think desirable. ‘This event is different from ordinary sports events in scale and social interest and because it overlaps with summer vacations. ‘There is a risk the movement of people and opportunities to...
    Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg emailed NIAID director Anthony Fauci in the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic to thank him for his “leadership” during the pandemic, and alert him to the rollout of Facebook’s coronavirus information hub, which artificially boosted “authoritative” information about the virus. The emails show Zuckerberg requesting a video Q&A with Fauci, because, in the Facebook founder’s words, “people trust and want to hear from our experts rather than just a bunch of agencies and political leaders.” The emails were revealed through FOIA requests made by the Washington Post and Buzzfeed. One paragraph of the email was redacted with FOIA exemption code b(4), meaning it contains “trade secrets and commercial or financial information obtained from a person [that is] privileged or confidential.” The email, dated March 15, 2020, is copied in full below. Tony: I wanted to send a note of thanks for your leadership and everything you’re doing to make our country’s response to this outbreak as effective as possible. I also wanted to share a few ideas of ways we could help you get your message out,...
    President Joe Biden’s plan to provide tax-payer funded pre-school locks parents into a system that benefits elites but does not factor in the needs or wants of every parent, experts told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “The President’s plan will invest in tuition-free community college and teacher scholarships to support those who wish to earn a bachelor’s degree or other credential that supports their work as an educator or their work to become an early childhood educator,” the White House said in a fact sheet. A study by the American Compass released this spring found that “most families see a full-time earner and a stay-at-home parent as the ideal arrangement for raising young children.” President Joe Biden’s plan to provide taxpayer funded preschool locks parents into a system that benefits elites but does not factor in the needs or wants of every parent, opponents of the proposal told the Daily Caller News Foundation. Biden announced his new plan April 29 to provide tax-payer funded universal pre-school to all 3-year-old and 4-year-old children, a move that the White House...
    Los Angeles County is set to hit a milestone in COVID-19 vaccinations that no one is happy about. For the first time, the county will not reach its goal of administering 95% of its weekly supply, officials said this week. The reason: Appointments for the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine have decreased by about 50%. When the vaccine first became available, people clamored to get it, sometime cutting lines and going to other counties. What happened? Here is what we know: Why the sudden fall in demand? Officials are not completely sure. “I do know that across the county this past week we saw much fewer people coming in to get vaccinated. For the first time ever, we’ve had appointments at many vaccination sites that have not been filled,” said L.A. County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer during a news briefing Thursday. Health experts and officials have attributed the drop to a variety of reasons, including ongoing hesitancy around the vaccine and access issues. In another sign of slowing demand for the COVID-19 vaccine, Los Angeles city officials...
    By Maggie Fox | CNN It was just about a year ago that doctors started noticing Covid-19 patients showing up in emergency rooms with strokes, and complained that blood clots were clogging up dialysis machines and other equipment being used to keep coronavirus patients alive. Frantic intensive care unit specialists reported “dramatic” blood clots in the heart, liver and other organs. Autopsies of coronavirus victims in New Orleans showed their lungs were jammed with clots. Some young, seemingly healthy patients were suffering massive strokes from Covid-19. “As a blood clot expert, I can tell you it’s the most blood-clotting disease we have ever seen in our lifetimes,” said Dr. Alex Spyropoulos, a professor at the Feinstein Institutes for Medical Research in New York. “I have been doing this for a quarter century. I have never seen these levels of blood clots.” Spyropoulos and colleagues have done a series of studies showing that treating Covid-19 patients with blood thinners can dramatically reduce or even prevent these clots. And getting vaccinated against Covid-19 can prevent them altogether by preventing infection in the...

    As more people receive COVID-19 vaccinations, Disney fans are ready to return to the company's theme parks. Disney/Handout/Getty Images Infectious disease experts told Insider it's safe for fully vaccinated adults to visit Disney parks. Still, you'll want to continue wearing masks and social distancing to protect others around you. You also might want to wait to visit Disney destinations — many attractions are still unavailable. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. More than one year into the COVID-19 pandemic, people are arguably more eager to travel than ever before — and Disney fans are no different. The company's Orlando, Florida, theme park reopened in July 2020 after a temporary closure that year, and it's been welcoming parkgoers ever since. Disneyland in Anaheim, California, on the other hand, is set to reopen at the end of April. The timing seems perfect for Disney diehards, as vaccines are becoming more readily available and people are starting to feel more comfortable traveling. But many Disney fans want to know if it's safe to hop on a plane and ride theme-park...
    (CNN)Teachers and school staff want to return to the classroom with their students, education experts said. But after a year of the pandemic, managing Covid-19 still poses obstacles to in-person learning."That's how they were trained to teach, and work with them, and they miss them. They want to be back in person," Becky Pringle, president of the National Education Association, told CNN's Jake Tapper on Friday. To make that return, Pringle said, it is important to be able to tell teachers, staff, parents and students that school is a safe place to be.As of Monday, teachers and educators in all 50 states will be eligible to receive Covid-19 vaccinations. The eligibility comes as the US ramps up vaccination efforts in hopes of curbing the spread of coronavirus variants and setting a course toward some sense of normalcy again. Heres why experts say the US may be fooled by improving Covid-19 numbers and what that means for the summer Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona told Tapper that safely reopening the nation's more than 14,000 public school districts for full, five-day-a-week classes...

Not so fast. The media and expert classes seem determined to make permanent the pandemic’s abnormal way of life. In December, a New York Times piece, “Here’s Why Vaccinated People Still Need to Wear a Mask,” kicked off the perma-gloom. Vaccinated people will still need to wear masks, because those with high viral loads could be “even worse spreaders,” the paper quoted Dr. Yvonne Maldonado of the American Academy of Pediatrics. “Even worse spreaders!” That’s horrible. It’s also horribly misleading. I know this, because I read the rest of the article.  The fear arises from studies on monkeys, which found that...

    PROVIDENCE, R.I. – The email from a political action committee seemed harmless: if you support Joe Biden, it urged, click here to make sure you're registered to vote. But Harvard University graduate student Maya James did not click. Instead, she Googled the name of the soliciting PAC. It didn’t exist -- a clue the email was a phishing scam from swindlers trying to exploit the U.S. presidential election as a way to steal peoples' personal information. “There was not a trace of them,” James, 22, said. “It was a very inconspicuous email, but I noticed it used very emotional language, and that set off alarm bells.” She deleted the message, but related her experience on social media to warn others. American voters face an especially pivotal, polarized election this year, and scammers here and abroad are taking notice — posing as fundraisers and pollsters, impersonating candidates and campaigns, and launching fake voter registration drives. It’s not votes they’re after, but to win a voter's trust, personal information and maybe a bank routing number. The Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Better...
    Sun exposure is not the only thing that speeds up the aging process of our skin. Experts say it’s also by what we eat. They say these foods are best to avoid when it comes to healthy, younger looking skin. First, french fries. Experts say foods fried in oil at high temperatures release free radicals that can cause cellular damage to the skin. Exposure to free radicals speed up the aging process by cross-linking, which affects DNA and weakens skin’s elasticity. French fries have a lot of salt which can dehydrate your skin, making it more prone to wrinkling. Next, sugar. Experts say sugar is the reason behind a lot of skin concerns like acne. When our sugar levels are elevated, the aging process is sped up. Experts say eat dark chocolate or fruit instead if you’re craving something sweet. Lastly, try to use less amounts of butter and margarine. Studies show those who don’t consume as much butter have less skin damage in wrinkles. Experts say this is because butter and margarine are high in hydrogenated oils, which damage...
    skynesher/Getty Images Traveling for the holidays during the coronavirus pandemic will pose some degree of risk no matter what your plans are. That risk will vary based on where you're going, who you're seeing, and what you're doing. Insider spoke with four public health experts about questions to consider when planning holiday travel during the pandemic. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. As the holiday season approaches, many Americans have now gone months without seeing family and friends. Some may choose to gather safely if they're able, but any social activity or travel comes with some degree of risk. The risk of transmission increases if you're coming from or going to an area with a high infection rate, and the risk of someone getting seriously ill goes up if you're seeing elderly family members or those with preexisting conditions. "These are not easy decisions, but unfortunately, they're the kind of decisions that we have to make these days," Matthew Fox, DSc, MPH, professor of epidemiology at Boston University, told Insider.

    Chris Duncan, whose 75-year-old mother Constance died from COVID, photographs a COVID Memorial Project installation of 20,000 American flags on the National Mall, representing the 200,000 Americans who had died from the coronavirus as of Sept. 26. Last Friday, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar informed the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis that "Herd immunity is not the strategy of the U.S. government with regard to coronavirus." But on Monday, he and Donald Trump adviser Dr. Scott Atlas met with three physicians noted for their out-of-the-mainstream views that the most vulnerable in the population be aggressively protected while the economy is reopened and broad testing for the virus, along with some other public health measures, be dropped. One of the three, Oxford epidemiologist Sunetra Gupta, told Laura Ingraham on Fox News Monday, “Three months, maybe six is sufficient time for enough immunity to accumulate … that the vulnerable could resume normal lives. [...] Don't test [the healthy]. Let them live their lives and let them build up the immunity that will eventually protect the vulnerables.” As Sarah...
