    In May 2021, thousands of protesters came out in response to a new Texas bill outlawing abortions after six weeks.Sergio Flores/Getty Fight disinformation. Get a daily recap of the facts that matter. Sign up for the free Mother Jones newsletter.Last night, when I was up too late doomscrolling through Twitter while mourning the demise of women’s constitutional rights, I couldn’t stop thinking of my friend, who I’ll call Laura. Laura is an OB-GYN in Fort Worth, Texas. Since she moved there almost five years ago from the East Coast, our communication has shifted from our favorite trash TV shows to lamenting the bleak outlook for women and women’s health care in her new home state. Even for someone who follows the news, the human consequences of Texas’ relentless assault on reproductive rights came as a bit of a shock to Laura—like when, shortly after she’d moved there, a pregnant woman in her early 40s and in a hostile relationship sought advice. “She was devastated and scared to get an abortion, personally and culturally, but knew she needed to do it,” Laura...

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday that state employees will be required to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, or will need to be tested regularly.  During a meeting with the Association for a Better New York on Wednesday, the governor said the New York state "will mandate all state employees either be vaccinated or get tested regularly." However, he said all "patient-facing" health care workers across the state will be required to be vaccinated and will not have the testing option. DOJ DECLARES VACCINE MANDATES LEGAL "We are working with the state unions to implement this program quickly & fairly," Cuomo tweeted. "Will take effect by Labor Day."  "So New York, our state hospitals, all patient facing health care workers must get vaccinated," Cuomo said. "There will be no testing option for patient-facing health care workers." He added: "That is a point of contact that could be a very serious spreading event and we want to make sure that those health care workers are vaccinated. Period." "I think we need dramatic action to get control of this situation," Cuomo said, referring...
    House Rep. Ronny Jackson, who served as the top White House physician under the Obama and Trump administrations, has predicted President Joe Biden won’t finish his term in office because of a lack of fitness for the job. ‘Something is SERIOUSLY wrong with Biden - and it’s only going to get WORSE!’ the Republican congressman from Texas tweeted on Thursday. ‘It’s past the point of embarrassment. He’s lost. He can barely put a coherent sentence together.’ Jackson added: ‘He MUST have a cognitive exam and release the results!’ Jackson told Fox News that Biden, who has been seen tripping on a stairwell before boarding Air Force One and having difficulty speaking coherently, will either be forced from office when the Cabinet invokes the 25th Amendment or he will resign. If members of Biden's cabinet aren't looking into invoking the 25th Amendment, then 'this is a national security issue at this point … it really is,' Jackson said.  House Rep.

    A HUNT for the Coronavirus 'patient zero' has led WHO officials to a mystery Italian woman whose skin sample showed she had the virus weeks before the outbreak in Wuhan. The 25-year-old had visited a hospital in Milan with a sore throat and skin lesions back in November 2019- a month before the first case of Covid-19 was reported in China. 3Research showed that the 25-year-old woman had the virus weeks before the first outbreakCredit: AFP 3A woman in Italy is feared to be the patient zeroCredit: Getty A research that was published in January found that a small skin sample from the woman contained yielded traces of the virus when it was tested more than six months later, reports the Wall Street Journal. Members of a World Health Organization-led team claim that the 25-year-old's case indicates the virus was circulating before the first outbreak in Wuhan's market in December 2019 and suggest further study would help them determine just how long.

    OCEAN CITY, Md. (WJZ) — The Town of Ocean City is asking visitors to pack their patience, as a workforce shortage has wait times at restaurants, hotels and attraction longer than normal. In a town that needs upwards of 12,000 seasonal employees, it’s a problem facing many Ocean City businesses. At Shenanigans Irish Pub, they’re operating with about 65% of the employees they would normally have heading into their busy season.

    VIDEO1:3201:32Snowflake CEO says investors need to be patient as cloud transition plays outMad Money with Jim Cramer Snowflake CEO Frank Slootman said Wednesday that shareholders need to be patient with the company's stock because the cloud transition is not happening overnight. "Our business is really going to conduct itself really over considerable, long periods of time," Slootman said in an interview with CNBC's Jim Cramer on "Mad Money." "That's sort of the message to investors to really understand we're signing on here for a journey that's five to 10 years." The comments came as shares of Snowflake tumbled as much as 8% in extended trading after the company reported fiscal first-quarter results. While revenue grew 110% year over year to a better-than-expected $228.9 million, the data-analytics software firm also reported a net loss of $203.2 million. That's up from $93.6 million in the same period a year earlier. At the same time, Snowflake also raised its full-year guidance for product revenue. Snowflake went public in September in a record-breaking IPO, with shares closing that initial trading day at $253.93. However,...
    Be nice to the people who actually showed up for work. One of the main selling points of fast food is that the food comes out fast.

    George Russell was asked to give his thoughts on the idea of sprint races being introduced in the upcoming season. The Williams driver believes the idea is interesting but thinks having an improved car will be better. The Grove-based outfit went pointless throughout the 2020 championship. The idea of sprint races being introduced is solely to make the weekend more interesting. The dominance of the top teams, particularly Mercedes, has made the competition bland. The F1 grid is in two minds about having sprint races being introduced into the competition. The backmarkers want to fight with the top teams, whereas the ones leading hope to dominate.

    ARSENAL manager Mikel Arteta has admitted that he is concerned he could stunt Eddie Nketiah's development due to a lack of football. England U21s' record goalscorer has not featured for the Gunners since a late cameo in the 0-0 draw with Manchester United back in January. 1Mikel Arteta has shared his fears about stunting Eddie Nketiah's developmentCredit: Getty - Pool Nketiah has started just twice in the Premier League all season, scoring just once.

    Lawrence Garbuz, now 51, was the first person in New York to be named as having the virus last March The New York lawyer who was considered to be the state's 'patient zero' with COVID-19 has spoken out to insist he was not a super-spreader, and is allowing doctors to study him to examine the long-term effects of the virus.  Lawrence Garbuz, now 51, was the first person in New York to be named as having the virus last March. A woman who had traveled back from Iran was the first - but she was never identified.  Shortly after he contracted it, his wife - Adina - contracted it as did some of their family and friends.  The pair live in New Rochelle and Garbuz was traveling into Manhattan for his job as a lawyer at the time. At its worst, the virus sent him into an induced coma. Now, he and his wife are both healthy and are allowing their data to be looked over by medical experts.  In an interview with The Wall Street Journal this week, he...
    An AstraZeneca vaccine production line.Bloomberg | Bloomberg | Getty Images The world's largest vaccine maker by volume, Serum Institute of India, has been told to meet domestic demand for Covid-19 shots first — before distributing them overseas. The move implies that foreign governments could face order delays from the company as it places India's needs ahead of others. "Dear countries & governments, as you await #COVISHIELD supplies, I humbly request you to please be patient," CEO Adar Poonawalla tweeted. He said the Serum Institute of India (SII) "has been directed to prioritise the huge needs of India and along with that balance the needs of the rest of the world. We are trying our best." Poonawalla did not elaborate on who gave the directive.

    Derick Lewis took questions from media at the UFC Vegas 19 post-fight press conference. The UFC Vegas 19 main event between Derrick Lewis and Curtis Blaydes did not disappoint. After losing the opening round, Lewis came back in the second and stopped the show right in its tracks with an empathic knockout finish with a short uppercut that cracked Blaydes as he was shooting for the takedown. In a fight in which the odds were thought to be heavily stacked against Lewis because of the contrast of styles, the victor explains that the outcome was what was in the plans all along. “I was waiting on was just for him to shoot. I didn’t care about anything else. I was just waiting on him to shoot. Throw the uppercut or knee. We knew it was coming,” said Lewis at the post-fight presser. “Then the second round came and I figured he was going to come out and stand up a little bit, then he was going to try to shoot. I just had to be patient.” It paid off...

    A man is in critical condition fighting, what scientists say, is the first case of reinfection with a concerning coronavirus variant first detected in South Africa. The 58-year-old patient with a history of asthma tested positive for the virus in September. He had a fever and difficulty breathing, but recovered in several days and tested negative twice the following month, scientists wrote in a paper recently published in Clinical Infectious Diseases. More than 100 days later, he developed symptoms and tested positive yet again. Sequencing revealed several mutations characteristic of the B.1.351 variant, altering the surface spike proteins. A week later, the man’s condition worsened and he required ventilation. CALIFORNIA'S FIRST CASES OF SOUTH AFRICAN CORONAVIRUS VARIANT IDENTIFIED IN BAY AREA Scientists said the strain behind the first positive test wasn’t available for sequencing, though they noted the case occurred before the strain emerged in South Africa and months before it was detected in France. "This is, to our knowledge, the first description of reinfection with the South African SARS-CoV-2 VOC 501Y.V2 causing severe COVID-19, four months after a first mild...

    Has your street been fully plowed and salted following the heavy snowfall earlier this week? If so, consider yourself lucky. Rosie Serene, of Allentown, can’t say she is. Days after the massive storm that dropped nearly two feet of snow on Lehigh Valley, Serene's entire block was left to fend for itself. Located near the intersection of West Fairview Street and 15th Street, has yet to receive any attention from the city’s snow removal crews. “What if there's an emergency?” she told Daily Voice. “We have older people on our block so it's not as easy as just getting the whole block together.” Though the city’s website lists a dedicated phone number for snow control, an automated message states that no requests are being accepted. “We are currently working on clearing the secondary roads and alleys,” the message said. “We will revisit the main roads, salting and plowing as necessary. Our crews are out working in every district all over the city in a grid formation, so please be patient with us until we can get to your area.” Seems...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Making sure teachers are vaccinated has been one of the main sticking points for the Chicago Teachers Union. Thousands of K-8 students are scheduled to return to in-person learning Monday. But teachers remain worried about the safety of the district’s reopening plan. On Friday, Chicago Public Health Commissioner Doctor Allison Arwady hosted a roundtable to discuss concerns, and urged patience when it comes to vaccines. “Teachers and staff are absolutely part of that plan. But there are more than 140,000 educators in the city of Chicago,” Arwady said. “If we were to take all of the vaccine, the first doses we were getting for five weeks, we could get through educators. But that would mean we can’t vaccinate anybody else, many others at higher risk.” Health experts believe the benefits of in-person learning outweigh the risks, as long as proper sanitizing procedures are followed and people have access to protective equipment. Chicago Public Schools and the teachers union said they will continue negotiations. Also From CBS Chicago: 14-Year-Old Charged In Series Of Chicago Carjackings Illinois State...
    A year-long hunt by The Mail on Sunday and Western intelligence officials for a Chinese lab researcher believed to be the world’s first Covid-19 patient has been thwarted by a suspected state cover-up. Huang Yanling, who worked at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, was named as Patient Zero in online reports that were widely shared inside China in the early weeks of the outbreak last February. The revelation created a direct link between the pandemic and the lab suspected to have accidentally unleashed it while conducting dangerous experiments on bat coronaviruses. The reports did not say when she contracted the virus or if she survived. However, they support the US State Department’s belief she was the first of several researchers at the controversial institute who fell ill with Covid-19 in the autumn of 2019, before it was officially acknowledged. ‘PATIENT ZERO’: The only picture thought to show missing former Wuhan lab worker Huang Yanling (left) Chinese government and lab officials stepped in swiftly to deny the reports at the time and remove them from the internet, claiming Huang was...

    Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam announced the commonwealth’s plan for distributing the COVID-19 vaccine to residents by priority groups, as he urged Virginians to ready themselves for a long winter with high rates of infection. Northam said that his administration’s goal is to get to 25,000 shots distributed every day in the short-term. “Hitting it will depend on manufacturing ramping up and supplies being distributed to states over time,” he said. “We don’t have everything we need yet — no state does — because it’s being manufactured, literally, in real-time.” Because the vaccines available at the moment require two doses, Northam said that the amount distributed per day would need to double later this year in order for the commonwealth to hit its goals for number of residents vaccinated. Northam also laid out the priority order for Virginians to receive the vaccine. It largely follows the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommendations for priority groups. Priority 1 has been broken into subgroups A, B, and C with Priority 1A being the highest priority and the first to receive the vaccine...
    FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) – A third state Department of Health drive-thru COVID-19 vaccination site opened Tuesday for people 65 and over who had made appointments. People lined up early for their vaccinations at Markham Park in Sunrise. Vaccinations there will be given Tuesday through Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Two other sites opened last Sunday. Vista View Park in Davie and Tradewinds Park in Coconut Creek administer vaccinations Sunday through Thursday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The first day of vaccinations did not go smoothly at Vista View. People waited for hours and when the site closed early, hundreds were turned away. The state health department said they would be rescheduled.

    TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami/NSF) – Gov. Ron DeSantis on Wednesday asked Floridians to be patient as COVID-19 vaccines are rolled out for the state’s seniors, a process that is already creating a rush and placing a substantial burden on hospitals that play a key role in carrying out the governor’s directives. DeSantis departed last week from federal guidelines and decided to make people 65 and older a priority for vaccinations, as opposed to “essential” workers such as teachers, first responders, and grocery-store employees. Taking that step has created a surge of demand, according to media reports from across the state, including the sight of older residents waiting overnight in Southwest Florida to be among the first to get vaccinated. There also have been reports of jammed phone lines and overwhelmed websites as people try to get appointments for shots. “The COVID vaccine supply is limited,” DeSantis said Wednesday during an appearance at a Palm Beach County senior complex where 300 residents were being inoculated. “We don’t have enough vaccine on hand for all 4 million-plus senior citizens. We will get there.” DeSantis...

Heading into Saturday's tricky home game with fifth-placed Chelsea they are just four points above the relegation zone. Aubameyang's lack of goals is one of the reasons they are in such a predicament having scored just four times.

Sports LaMelo Ball struggled to contribute and find playing time on Wednesday. (Jason Miller/Getty Images) LaMelo Ball saw his first NBA action as the Cleveland Cavaliers beat his Charlotte Hornets, 121-114 in Wednesday’s season opener. His playing time was limited. As was his contribution on the court. In 16 minutes, Ball logged zero points, three assists, one rebound, two steals and three turnovers. He missed all five of his field goal attempts. It’s certainly not what Hornets fans were hoping for from the No. 3 pick in the draft. It places him alongside the company of Greg Oden, Hasheem Thabeet and Otto Porter Jr. as the only top-three picks in NBA history to go scoreless in their NBA debuts — not exactly elite company.Why all the hype for LaMelo?Thanks largely to his status...
    Two deputies for President-elect Joe Biden are urging migrants not to rush the U.S. border, saying officials will soon offer various legal routes for migrants to get into U.S. workplaces and communities. “Individuals should not believe those who are pushing the idea that they must come to the United States right now,” Jake Sullivan, the expected National Security Advisor, told EFE, a Spanish-language wire service that is widely read in Latin American countries. “We need time to increase processing capacity and to do so consistent with public health requirements.” “Migrants and asylum seekers absolutely should not believe those in the region peddling the idea that the border will suddenly be fully open to process everyone on Day 1,” said Susan Rice, who is expected to be Biden’s top domestic policy chief. “It will take months to develop the capacity that we will need to reopen fully.” Neither official suggested any migrants would be rejected by their proposed “establishing a fair, humane, and orderly immigration system.” President Donald Trump is denying asylum to migrants “rather than helping create alternative pathways to...

Former Blues star Cole has assured fans that the forward only needs to make minor adjustments to find form.

    The drug remdesivir, long touted as a potential Covid-19 treatment, has been used to successfully cure a patient who suffered a rare reaction to the disease.  A 31-year-old man infected with the coronavirus experienced unusual symptoms due to a genetic disorder called XLA, which prevented him from making antibodies to fight infection.  The patient was twice admitted to hospital with confirmed Covid-19, with moderate but persistent symptoms. His condition was stable but did not improve on its own.  On both occasions, treatment with remdesivir rapidly led to improvement in his condition and allowed him to be discharged.  The researchers say the patient's inability to make antibodies offered a unique insight into the functioning of the drug in Covid-19 patients. Writing in Nature Communications they say remdesevir likely has antiviral properties and could be highly effective for some patients.   Remdesivir was initially developed to treat hepatitis C and then repurposed as a potential Ebola treatment, Due to the similarity in the structures of these viruses to SARS-CoV-2, the virus which causes Covid-19, experts hoped it may be able to help...
    James Wiseman’s Golden State Warriors debut might take a while. The Golden State Warriors were in quite the unusual situation, as they held the second pick in the 2020 NBA Draft despite being widely expected to secure a playoff spot in the 2020-21 postseason. While they solved their biggest need by grabbing Memphis center James Wiseman, his debut with the Warriors might not come for a while after both he and veteran forward Draymond Green tested positive for COVID-19 in the latest round of testing. With Green and Wiseman both having tested positive, the Warriors are likely going to hold them both out of the preseason, putting their regular-season debuts potentially in jeopardy.James Wiseman could give the Warriors a true game-changing centerThe Warriors essentially drafted Wiseman out of high school, as he played just three games for Penny Hardway at Memphis. Still, a 7-1 center with his athletic ability, soft touch, and ferocious demeanor inside was too good for Golden State to pass up. Wiseman is expected to serve as the new starting center, with Green returning to the power...

To the agitating farmers, his message was: be patient and peaceful in your protests. “This is the only way we can win this fight. Stories of these days will definitely be told in future,” he said, while thanking the...
    Record cards may be used to track the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine in the United States, CNN reported on Thursday, December 3. The cards will be part of the vaccination kits that have been prepared by the Department of Defense to help facilitate the distribution of the vaccine once it gets approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Last month, Gen. Gustave Perna — the chief operating officer of Operation Warp Speed — said the DoD has created 100 million such kits. The cards will be simple, wallet-sized pieces of paper that will help recipients of the vaccine track the time and date of their dosages. The DoD released photos of the cards on Wednesday. As they stand now, the cards have spaces for the patient’s name, as well as which type of vaccine they took, including its lot number. There is also a place to write the date the dose was given and by whom. This will help medical professionals more easily determine where in the course of vaccination a patient is. The vaccination cards are just one...

    COVID-19 liability protections for businesses will be a topic state legislatures nationwide will tangle with in 2021 if they had not done so in 2020. Florida lawmakers adjourned their 2020 session in March just as the COVID-19 pandemic emerged. Despite repeated appeals for a special session to address an array of issues, including COVID-19 liability concerns, none was called. After months of silence on COVID-19 liability waivers for businesses – and after resisting a request for a special session by a task force of Florida business leaders – Gov. Ron DeSantis suggested in October that legislative leaders call for a special session during their Nov. 17 post-election organizational meeting and adopt legislation to resolve liability concerns. Doing so in a brief special session, however, is easier said than done, state lawmakers said Friday during the conclusion of the two-day Florida Chamber of Commerce Insurance Summit. While COVID-19 liability protections will be a priority when the state Legislature convenes in March, it will take a 60-day session’s worth of vetting and discussion to pass a law that...
    DENVER (CBS4)– Colorado’s Republican party is reacting to the vote counting as the President makes claims of fraud and asks for a halt to some vote counting. It’s been a difficult period as Colorado confirmed a move from purple to blue in statewide balloting. Former Gov. Bill Owens (credit: CBS) President Donald Trump remains 13 points behind in the latest vote count in Colorado, which is still counting some remaining ballots. “My suggestion is, we need to be patient. This was a complicated election. With COVID a lot of people voted by mail, a lot of other people voted in person,” said former Republican Governor Bill Owens. “What we need to do is let the process work out and count all the ballots and then let’s have ourselves either a re-elected president or a new president.” Owens called for a cooling of rhetoric, “I wish the temperature of discussion would come down. I wish could simply take a look at the process, take a deep breath and let the let the process work.” Other Republicans released...
    Savannah Rychcik November 6, 2020 0 Comments Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel is encouraging Americans to hold on while allegations of voter “irregularities” are looked into. “I would also agree be patient because we have seen a lot of irregularities… I have been in Michigan, we’ve been pursuing reports coming in on our hotline, people who were disenfranchised from observing the vote count and some more serious allegations that we’re seeing, so, be patient and allow that to play out,” McDaniel said during her appearance on Fox News. She stressed there is a “canvass” for a reason and a “certification” for a reason. McDaniel explained some of the irregularities coming from Michigan “are very, very serious.” Watch her remarks below: Pressed by Fox News to provide evidence backing up her claims of "irregularities" in the 2020 election, Ronna McDaniel has nothing pic.twitter.com/bTqCETya12— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) November 6, 2020 “I want to let this play out and allow the lawyers to look at this, but, it is not something that is little, so, be...
    ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ) — Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan is urging Americans to be patient as ballots are counted in the U.S. presidential election. In a new ad with Democratic Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Hogan said Americans should respect the election process. “We cast the votes, we count the votes and we respect the results,” Hogan said, “We’re Republicans and Democrats, who believe we’re first, Americans.” “And we have a message for all Americans, we’ll get through this together,” he added. The No Labels.org ad, then goes onto say that on Jan. 20, 2021, the country will swear in a new president to which Hogan says, “and when we do, we all stand ready to work with him — together.” During the state’s board of public works meeting Wednesday morning, Hogan continued his praise for the country’s election process, noting the U.S. saw the highest voter turnout in 100 years, proving that “America is the greatest democracy the world has ever seen.” “Democracy requires that we each be responsible,” he continued. “What happens in the coming weeks with...

    In Pennsylvania, which is viewed as a key win for either presidential candidate hoping to secure the White House, experts are cautioning residents to exercise patience as early tallies may be misleading. Due to state laws governing mail-in and absentee vote counting, reported results could shift markedly between Election Day and the week’s end. As previously reported by Fox News, each county is responsible for determining how it will tackle a massive volume of mail-in and absentee ballots – but the process cannot begin before 7 a.m. ET on Election Day. Some counties will not even begin the pre-canvassing process – which includes sorting, verifying and other processes that precede actually counting the vote – until Wednesday. The undertaking is likely to take even longer after the Supreme Court ruled that Pennsylvania can accept ballots by mail through Friday, so long as they are postmarked by Election Day. Because a higher percentage of Pennsylvanians who requested mail-in ballots are Democrats, there is the potential for a “red mirage,” which describes a situation where Republican candidates, like President Trump, may appear to have an...
    Crystal Cox/Business Insider Surgeons are looking to perform the world's first-ever penis transplant on a transgender man.  Dr. Curtis Cetrulo, a plastic and reconstructive surgeon at Massachusetts General Hospital, told MedPage Today it would be a "quantum leap" for surgery.  Only a handful of successful penis transplants have ever been performed on cisgender men who have lost their penises.  Dr. Justin Dubin, a urology resident at the University of Miami, told Insider this procedure may come with especially difficult complications because penis transplants are already difficult on cisgender men.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. A team of Massachusetts surgeons is preparing to perform the world's first-ever penis transplant on a transgender man.  During the procedure, surgeons would take the penis of a deceased donor and transfer it onto a transgender patient who was assigned female at birth. As there are only a handful of successful penis transplants that have been performed on cisgender men (men who were assigned male at birth) who lost their penises in war or to cancer, this surgery could be groundbreaking for...
    A Seattle man has been identified as the third person in the US to have been infected twice with the novel coronavirus. The unidentified man, who is in his 60s, first contracted COVID-19 in March at a nursing home in Washington state and became so ill that he had to be hospitalized for 40 days. Five months later, in July, he tested positive again after moving to a different facility, but this time his illness was mild and he recovered. Genetic testing has since revealed that the man was infected by two different strains.  Researchers say that because the patient was not very sick during his second bout, it suggests that he developed some antibodies during the first bout, even if not enough to prevent reinfection.  A Seattle nursing home resident in his 60s first tested positive for the coronavirus on March 6 and then again on July 29.

    An elderly woman from the Netherlands caught COVID-19 twice and died after reinfection, researchers said in a study accepted for publication in the journal Clinical Infectious Disease. While there have been other reported cases of coronavirus reinfection, Dutch media said this is the first death known worldwide after reinfection, Reuters reported. The woman had Waldenström's macroglobulinemia, a rare cancer, and was being treated with B-cell-depleting therapy when she contracted COVID-19. She had a fever and severe cough and went to the emergency room, where she tested positive for the virus, according to the study. She went home five days later and recovered from her symptoms, aside from some lingering fatigue.  However, 59 days after the start of that COVID-19 infection, she developed symptoms again. She had received chemotherapy two days prior to developing symptoms. She suffered fever, cough and dyspnea and her oxygen saturation was 90% when she went to the hospital. She tested positive for COVID-19 again and died weeks later.  Get Breaking News Delivered to Your Inbox According to the study, the patient was infected with two...
