    Five-time All-Star John Wall has opened up on his personal battle with mental health in a published essay for the The Players' Tribune, as he got 'as close as you can get' to suicide after a serious injury that nearly required his foot to be amputated and the deaths of his mother and grandmother. Wall has gone through a series of injuries and has played in just 113 games over the past five seasons, first with the Washington Wizards, then the Houston Rockets - for whom he sat out for throughout the entirety of last season - and now the LA Clippers over the summer.  His mother died of breast cancer late in 2019 and his grandmother died during the pandemic. As the country dealt with COVID-19, Wall was also battling in his inner self each day. 'One night, after all my homies had left and it was just me sitting there all alone with my thoughts running wild, I got about as close as you can get to making an unfortunate decision and leaving this earth,' Wall wrote in...
    OAKLAND — It was a picture of his sister on his left leg that put Aroldis Chapman on the injured list. The Yankees former closer said Sunday he does feel bad about not being available for the Yankees right now, but felt it could not be expected. Chapman, who has large swathes of his arms and legs covered in tattoos, said this was the first time he had ever had a bad reaction. “We have a really good bullpen and I am part of that bullpen, so not being there of course you’re gonna feel bad not being there for them,” Chapman said after the Yankees’ 4-1 loss to the A’s at the Coliseum. “I’ve  gotten some tattoos in the middle of the season, but never had any issues before,” Chapman said through Yankees interpreter Marlon Abreu. Chapman said he got the tattoo, a portrait of his sister, last Saturday and it took a couple days for him to realize it was infected. He had not pitched for eight days when the Yankees put him on the IL Saturday evening. After...
    An Air Force veteran has become the second man to die in Florida from a bacterial infection after eating raw oysters from Louisiana.  Rodney Jackson, 55, became sick after contracting the bacteria from oysters he bought at a market in Pensacola and later died in hospital on August 9.  His death comes just weeks after Roger Pinckney, 44, died after eating a 'one in a billion' bad oyster at the Rustin Inn Crabhouse in Fort Lauderdale.  The two men had eaten oysters that had come from Louisiana before becoming infected with vibrio, a bacteria typically caught from eating raw or undercooked seafood.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says Vibrio bacteria doesn't make an oyster look, smell, or taste any different. The agency said about 80,000 people get vibriosis in the U.S. each year, and about 100 people die from it.  The two men had eaten oysters that had come from Louisiana before becoming infected with vibrio, a bacteria typically caught from eating raw or undercooked seafood Vibriosis: Illness caught from uncooked seafood Vibriosis is a disease triggered by...
    A Florida man has died from a bacterial infection after eating a raw oyster at a restaurant in what the manager called a 'one in a billion' moment. The unnamed individual — who worked at family-run Rustic Inn Crabhouse two decades ago as a busboy — dined there in late July but quickly fell ill. Medics later confirmed he was infected with vibrio, a bacteria typically caught from eating raw or undercooked seafood that can kill up to a third of people it infects. Restaurant manager Gary Oreal confirmed the fatality to DailyMail.com, saying it had never happened before. The man was at the Fort Lauderdale business on the day when it served 100 dozen shellfish. There have been no other reported illnesses. Celebrities including LeBron James and Blac Chyna have frequented the Rustic Inn before eager to try its famous garlic crab. It is also claimed locally that Johnny Depp once worked there as a busboy. The unnamed man ate oysters while at the Rustic Inn Crabhouse in late July but quickly fell ill (Pictured above is the restaurant...

Sign up for the free Mother Jones newsletter.The Omicron variant of Covid-19, which has overwhelmed hospitals and set new pandemic case records, is starting to wane in states that saw late surges—a sign that the worst of the highly contagious variant wave may have passed in the United States. The latest available numbers reveal that Omicron is following a pattern from rapid acceleration to quick drop-off. In South Africa, where the variant was first identified, infections are down 87 percent from a mid-December peak. In the US, Omicron first hit the northeast. According to New York Times data, infections in those states started coming down as quickly as they rose—though new infection rates remain above last winter’s record. Now, the Times reports, rates are finally falling in the last states where Omicron surged: In Arizona, the seven-day average of daily cases fell from a peak of 20,778 on Monday to 18,208 on Friday, a roughly 12 percent decrease over five days, according to a New York Times database. Cases...
    BERLIN (AP) — Chancellor Angela Merkel on Saturday called on all unvaccinated Germans to get their shots as quickly as possible as the country’s coronavirus infection rate hits the latest in a string of new highs and death numbers are growing. “If we stand together, if we think about protecting ourselves and caring for others, we can save our country a lot this winter,” Merkel said in her weekly podcast. The chancellor warned that “these are very difficult weeks ahead of us.” Germany’s disease control center said that Germany’s infection rate climbed to 277.4 new cases per 100,000 residents over seven days, up from 263.7 the previous day. The Robert Koch Institute reported 45,081 new infections, two days after the daily total topped 50,000 for the first time. Another 228 COVID-19 deaths brought Germany’s total in the pandemic so far to 97,617. While the infection rate isn’t yet as high as in some other European countries, its relentless rise in Germany has set off alarm bells. Outgoing Chancellor Merkel plans to meet with the country’s 16...
    There are provinces in Iran where it seems there have been more COVID cases than there are people. In other words, it’s possible that in some of the worst-hit regions, a whole lot of people caught COVID twice. That’s not just bad news for Iran’s 84 million people. It’s also bad news for, say, the 3 million people in Mississippi and the 5 million in Alabama. Experts believe Iran is vulnerable to reinfection because it’s under-vaccinated and has relied too much on fragile natural antibodies from past infection to protect people. But a whole lot of other places all over the world are making the same mistake. If natural antibodies aren’t preventing reinfection in Iran, there’s no reason to believe they’ll do the same in other poorly vaccinated places. “We need to be concerned,” Cindy Prins, a University of Florida epidemiologist, told The Daily Beast. It’s hard to say exactly how bad COVID has been in Iran. Experts stress that the official stats from the authoritarian government in Tehran are at best incomplete and, at worst, manipulated. Officially, more...
    Thursday, during an appearance on FNC’s “Fox News Primetime,” Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) criticized the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for the guidance it has put out on the various COVID-19 vaccines. Massie told host Tammy Bruce studies had shown those that have had the virus get “no benefit” from the vaccine. Yet, he said the CDC continues to promote universal vaccinations. “Well, the great thing about real science, and I’m not talking political science, but real science is repeatable,” he said. “And the Cleveland Clinic study shows that there is no benefit to the vaccine if you have already had COVID and recovered. Now, the reason that’s a repeat is, the CDC knew this six months ago. This is a scandal that I have been blowing the whistle on. I called the director of the CDC in Washington, D.C., in December and told them that the Pfizer trial data showed there was no benefit from the vaccine to those with prior infection. And they said, ‘Oh, wow. You are right. We will change that.’ And they never...

    From a high fever to a loss of sense of smell, Covid-19 is associated with a range of unpleasant symptoms.  Now, a new study has warned that infection with the coronavirus can also lead to swollen salivary glands in the mouth. Researchers studied 122 Covid-19 patients in Italy who caught the virus and were admitted hospital between July 23 and September 7, 2020.  Follow-up appointments over three months found more than eight out of ten patients had some form of facial or mouth issue as a result of the infection.  The most common was swollen salivary glands, known as ectasia, which affected 43 per cent of patients. Salivary glands make spit to help with chewing and swallowing.

    Fatigue, loss of smell and chest pains are all some of the better known long-term effects that persist months after coronavirus infection. But according to a new scientific paper, almost a quarter of Covid-19 survivors may have to adjust to hair loss too.   The study, published in The Lancet, reveals that 359 out of 1,655 patients hospitalised in Wuhan, China – 22 per cent – had experienced hair loss six months after being discharged.  Dermatologists say hair loss is a normal physiological response to a stressful event like an infectious illness and is only temporary – but Covid could be linked to conditions like alopecia, which can lead to irreversible hair loss.  Researchers at Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences found 22 per cent of people who recovered from Covid-19 experienced hair loss within the six months after leaving hospital RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next Global study to investigate whether Covid-19 could lead to...

    By Angela Charlton and John Leicester | Associated Press PARIS — French President Emmanuel Macron on Friday blamed his COVID-19 on a combination of negligence and bad luck, urging his compatriots to stay safe as critics called out slip-ups in his behavior to prevent infection, from a close-quarters handshake to repeated big-group meals over the past week. In what looked like a self-shot video from the presidential retreat in Versailles where he was isolating, Macron said he was experiencing symptoms that included headaches, fatigue and a dry cough. He promised to give daily updates and be “totally transparent” about the evolution of his illness. “I am doing well,” the 42-year-old French leader said, speaking softly with a bottle of gel on the desk behind him and dressed casually in a turtleneck top. “Normally, there is no reason for it to evolve in a bad way.” Macron said his infection “shows that the virus really can touch everyone, because I am very protected and am very careful.” “Despite everything I caught this virus — perhaps, doubtless, a moment of negligence, a...
    SAN FRANCISCO —  California capped a week of unprecedented coronavirus spread, with officials unsure how much worse it will get while placing hope that new restrictions could help slow infections as the holidays approach. The staggering rise in cases caught many off guard, with long lines at some testing facilities and worries about whether Thanksgiving will cause even more people to be infected. For the seven-day period that ended Friday, an average of 10,981 people in California were reported to be infected daily — a number that has more than doubled in just the last two weeks. That is even worse than the peak in the summer, which until now had been California’s worst spike of COVID-19, according to a Times data analysis. For the first time, California has recorded three days in the last week where more than 13,000 new infections a day have been recorded. And hospitalizations are up 61% statewide over just the last two weeks. “The data looks really bad right now,” said Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer on Friday....
    CORONAVIRUS cases are now above 20 per 100,000 of the population in every local authority in England, data from Public Health England (PHE) has revealed. Areas such as Knowsley, Nottingham and Liverpool top the list, and the map below shows how bad infections of the virus are in your area. ⚠️ Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest news & updates 3 Places further north such as West Lancashire and Blackpool also have over 400 cases per 100,000 of the population. Earlier this week it was revealed that Greater Manchester would be pushed into a Tier 3 lockdown - as part of the government’s drive to curb infections in the area. Places such as Liverpool are already in Tier 3 and this means that pubs are shut and households cannot mix in any settings. The government lockdown is split into three Tiers and this reflects the level of infection across the country. The infection map above has three categories, dark red, red and amber. But previously it had included a green category - for areas where cases were...
    (CNN)Europe is deep in the second wave of the coronavirus epidemic, and a particularly worrying trend is beginning to emerge: More older people are becoming infected. Over the summer months, the continent saw infection clusters popping up mostly among younger people who were venturing out into bars, restaurants and other public spaces. While that wasn't ideal, it meant the death rate stayed relatively low, since younger people are statistically less vulnerable to the virus and most avoid getting seriously ill.However, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) has warned that more older people are now becoming infected. According to the ECDC's latest situation report, at least 13 countries in Europe saw new infection rates among people aged 65 or over rise to what ECDC defines as "high" last week -- between 64 per 100,000 in Croatia and 206 per 100,000 in the Netherlands. Its the worst disaster of the pandemic. But WHO chief says our lack of concern for the elderly shows moral bankruptcyA sharp increase in infections among older people in recent weeks can be seen...

    Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, scientists have been saying that if the novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, sticks around long enough, people are likely to catch it more than once. That’s based on what immunologists know about other members of the coronavirus family—the ones that have long survived their initial spillover events and now circulate seasonally, causing the common cold. People who get sick mount an immune response that protects them for months or years, depending on the person. But, at some point, that protection wanes and they become susceptible to infection again. On Monday, researchers at Hong Kong University presented the first confirmation that this can, in fact, happen with SARS-CoV-2. Not a shock, say experts. But still a useful data point for understanding how immunity to the coronavirus works, both in individuals and in populations. At the molecular level of antibodies and T cells, the case provides reason to be hopeful. As for the odds of achieving herd immunity without a vaccine? It’s a cautionary example. The report details how in March, a 33-year-old man living in Hong Kong came down...
    REUTERS/Stephen Lam On Monday, California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced a COVID-19 outbreak in San Quentin State Prison was his "top focus and priority," and that nearly 1,000 inmates would be released early or relocated. The announcement came after more than one third of the inmates had been confirmed having COVID-19. Last week, University of California San Francisco infectious disease specialist Dr. Peter Chin-Hong told NBC Bay Area the prison had become "the Chernobyl of COVID." San Quentin's coronavirus outbreak stemmed from a transfer of 121 highly vulnerable inmates from the California Institution for Men in Chino on May 30. Over three weeks, the prison went from having no cases to 499 confirmed cases. California Sen. Mike McGuire called the error a "failure of leadership" and said the crisis had been "completely avoidable." Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. San Quentin State Prison's coronavirus situation is so volatile it's been labeled "the Chernobyl of COVID," and Californian Gov. Gavin Newsom said he is looking into who can leave as soon as possible.  On Monday, Newsom said that the...
