    SO once again we’re being asked to stay home if we’re unwell and wear masks if we go out – this time to keep a lid on the flu epidemic AND Covid. The UK Health Security Agency advice this week had inevitable echoes of the dreaded Stay At Home, Protect The NHS, Save Lives mantra from the ­pandemic. 2The NHS is meant to look after us — not the other way roundCredit: Getty The inevitable outcry is understandable. The NHS is meant to look after us — not the other way round. Yet despite the huge sums of money being endlessly pumped in — £3.3billion more is going into NHS England in 2023/2024 — not a day goes by without another horror story. Even worse ­situation The NHS is on the brink — perhaps it is no wonder desperate chiefs are advising people to wear masks in crowded spaces or stay home if they get ill. But these lockdown-lite measures are not the answer. I’m afraid the warning signs heralding imminent NHS collapse have been there for years. And many...

    A Long Island orthodontist's office was turned "Upside Down" this Halloween. Mateer Orthodontics in Commack was transformed with elaborate "Stranger Things" decorations this year, and members of the staff dressed up as various characters from the show. "Mateer Orthodontics transformed into Hawkins over night! We hope you enjoy our 'Stranger Things Experience,'" the business said in a social media post.  Dr. Scott Mateer dressed up as the creature Vecna and treated patients wearing the costume on Wednesday, Oct. 26, and Friday, Oct. 28. Felicia Cook, who works as an orthodontic assistant, said the office has been planning the Halloween surprise since August, and it took about three days to set up all the decorations. The staff decided the theme was a good idea after the vast majority of patients said they watched the show, Cook said.  She added that when patients arrived at the office and saw the decorations, they said they felt like they were transported to a completely new world. Each year, the office does a transformation for Halloween along with giveaways for patients, and they also have...
    (CNN) — To avoid lockdowns, people in the United States will have to do things that they won’t necessarily want to do, such as wearing masks at indoor gatherings even if they’re vaccinated and having kids mask up in schools, the director of the National Institutes of Health said Monday. “We want to avoid lockdowns at all costs, but that means we’re going to have to do some other things that won’t necessarily be welcomed by people,” Dr. Francis Collins said on ABC’s “Good Morning America” when asked how he saw the fall playing out. READ MORE: COVID-19 In Maryland: Positivity Rate Rises To 3.23%, 25 Hospitalized Those unwelcome things include vaccinated people wearing masks at indoor parties, Collins said, citing an outbreak in Massachusetts in which many of the infected people were fully vaccinated. Also, children may need to wear masks in schools so that they’re protected from being a source of spreading, something he acknowledged is “not popular with kids or parents.” “But if we want to avoid more severe outcome that might lead to more extreme measures...

    (CNN)Lupus is unpredictable, triggering different symptoms in different patients. A chronic illness, it can even attack many different parts of the body.The condition is an autoimmune disease, which means that a person's immune system—the body system that usually fights infections—attacks healthy tissue instead. It can cause inflammation and pain anywhere in a patient's body.Because the illness can look different in every patient, it can go undetected and undiagnosed for years.The Lupus Foundation of America estimates that 1.5 million Americans and at least 5 million people worldwide have some form of lupus. There are four forms in all: systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), lupus confined to the skin, lupus caused by some prescription drugs and a rare lupus that affects infants of women with the disease.

    When an East Village man got sick from COVID-19 he learned the real pain would come when he got home from the hospital. Ryo Nagaoka, 60, returned from his months-long battle with the dread disease Wednesday to find out that the management of his building — which is part-owned by ex-Yankee Alex Rodriguez and real estate guru Barbara Corcoran — had thrown all his possessions away, neighbors said. The only things left behind were his grand piano and his beloved pet tortoise — which had somehow survived for months without food. “He doesn’t have a toothbrush. He doesn’t have a stove. People have been taking him toilet paper, shoes. Somebody found him a mattress,” said a neighbor. The restaurant worker didn’t even have his passport, ID or other essential documents, a source said. Residents of the building at 133 Avenue D told Page Six that after Nagaoka had been gone for a few weeks, everyone had assumed he died. “They were so quick to erase his entire life,” said Sierra Zamarripa, owner of the Lovewild Design gift shop...
    HOUSTON (CBSDFW.COM/CNN) – The picture captured just a fraction of the heartache experienced by medical staff and patients during the COVID-19 pandemic, now a Texas doctor is talking about the isolation of his elderly patients and asking, in fact pleading, with people to “do the basic things” to avoid infection and stay out of hospital. Dr. Joseph Varon was captured on film cradling a distraught COVID-19 patient on Thanksgiving. The elderly gray-haired patient buried his head in the arms and chest of the doctor, who was covered from head-to-toe in PPE.

Varon described the desperation of COVID-19 patients on his wards, who he said were battling isolation as well as the virus. The man he had...
    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is among many state leaders working to quell rising positive cases of the novel coronavirus as the holiday season approaches, though the New York Democrat has faced some criticism over how he has handled the pandemic in certain situations. New York was the epicenter of the domestic outbreak in the early spring, bearing the brunt of cases as the country grappled with the disease and experts raced to share more details on transmissibility, symptoms and prevention methods. Since then, cases in the Empire State have dropped dramatically – and still remain among the lowest in the U.S. Despite praise for flattening the curve, one of the controversies in the state was Cuomo’s regulations regarding nursing home patients, which some argue may have contributed to a large number of fatalities among vulnerable, elderly populations. Here’s what to know about the directive: The order On March 25, Cuomo issued a directive that required nursing homes to accept COVID-positive patients released from hospitals. It also required that the facility ensure that it could adequately care for those individuals while protecting other residents....

Ad Microsoft Full screen 1/8 SLIDES © Provided by Best Life If You Can't Taste These 2 Things, You May Have COVID One of the most common and unique symptoms of the novel coronavirus is a change to or loss of your sense of smell or taste. Not all patients experience both, and while plenty has been written about anosmia (smell blindness) in regards to COVID, the loss of taste has been less discussed.

Specifically, they found that while many standard colds or flu cases may dull your sense of smell or block your nose, with COVID-19, it will specifically be bitter or sweet flavors that you struggle to taste. Read on for more, and for the latest news on...

Ad Microsoft Full screen 1/5 SLIDES © Provided by Best Life If Your Food Tastes Like These 2 Things, You May Have COVID By now, COVID's strangest symptom—loss of smell—has been well documented and widely discussed. But fewer people know that another, related sign of coronavirus may also tip you off to a diagnosis: an altered sense of taste. Many COVID patients report losing their ability to taste food or experience a major change in their palette—sometimes recalling familiar things.

In fact, a recent article in The New York Times reported that up to 87 percent of patients experience this surprising symptom. And, according to the Vanderbilt University Medical Center, in roughly 25 percent of people diagnosed with coronavirus, it's the first and only sign that something is amiss.
