The strain on the health care system is tremendous, and as much as we can do, all of us, individually, collectively, to decrease the pressure on the hospital system, our exhausted health care workers on the front line, I think that's really what we need to be focusing on, Dr. Howard Njoo, Canada's deputy chief public health officer, via CNN.

The prime minister's wife, Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, also tested positive for COVID-19 in March 2020

Moderna Says New Booster Shows 'Superior' Omicron Response

Moderna Says New Booster , Shows 'Superior' Omicron Response. NPR reports Moderna claims its most recent vaccine candidate has shown a "superior neutralizing antibody response" when compared to its first vaccine. It is "bivalent," engineered to target two different antigens. Per NPR, Moderna intends to make its newest booster available in fall 2022. We are submitting our preliminary data and analysis to regulators with the hope that the Omicron-containing bivalent booster will be available in the late summer. , Stéphane Bancel, Moderna CEO, via statement. Due to a higher antibody response, Moderna believes its newest vaccine will offer protection that is "more durable over time" against Omicron.

NASA Announces New Milestone in Mystery of Universe's Expansion Rate [Video]

NASA Announces New Milestone in Mystery of Universe's Expansion Rate

NASA Announces New, Milestone in Mystery, of Universe's Expansion Rate. On May 19, NASA announced that the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) has now calibrated over 40 "milepost markers" of space and time. Fox reports that these markers help scientist measure the expansion rate of the universe, otherwise known as the "Hubble constant.". Astronomers have now found a discrepancy between the expansion rate of the local universe compared to observations following the big bang. According to Fox, the cause of the discrepancy remains unclear, but NASA claims that the HST data may support new physics. A nationwide scientific collaboration called Supernova, H0, for the Equation of State of Dark Energy (SH0ES) looked at 42 Type Ia supernovae with Hubble. The SH0ES project was designed to bracket the universe by matching the precision of the Hubble constant inferred from studying the cosmic microwave background radiation leftover from the dawn of the universe, Adam Riess, Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) and the Johns Hopkins University, via Fox.

SH0ES found the expansion rate to be more than double the prior sample of cosmic distance markers. .

Overdose Deaths Increased by 15 Percent in 2021, CDC Reports [Video]

Overdose Deaths Increased by 15 Percent in 2021, CDC Reports

Overdose Deaths Increased by 15 Percent in 2021, CDC Reports. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the number of overdose deaths in 2021 was almost 108,000. This equates to a 15 percent increase from the year before on top of the nearly 30 percent increase in overdose deaths reported in 2020. Officials say the epidemic is being fueled by the widespread availability of meth and fentanyl. There’s an intertwined synthetics epidemic the likes of which we’ve never seen, Dr. Dan Ciccarone, UC San Francisco, via 'The New York Times'. We’ve never seen a powerful opioid such as fentanyl being mixed with such a potent methamphetamine, Dr. Dan Ciccarone, UC San Francisco, via 'The New York Times'. Fentanyl is cheaper and easier to manufacture and distribute than heroin. It is also more potent than heroin, often resulting in deadly consequences. The economics of fentanyl have just been pushing the other drugs out of the market, Dr. Joshua Sharfstein, Johns Hopkins University, via 'The New York Times'. It’s just so cheap to buy fentanyl and turn around and put it in whatever, Dr. Joshua Sharfstein, Johns Hopkins University, via 'The New York Times'. As the COVID pandemic continues to wane, officials say the increase in overdose deaths can no longer be attributed to isolation. In the beginning stages of the pandemic, we were attributing the increase to life being disrupted, Kelly Dougherty, Deputy Health Commissioner of VT, via 'The New York Times'. What is really the primary driver is the presence of fentanyl in the drug supply, Kelly Dougherty, Deputy Health Commissioner of VT, via 'The New York Times'. The Biden administration recently announced a new approach to the epidemic that focuses on "harm reduction" rather than abstinence. While the new approach has the potential to save lives, state officials say it may not be enough to combat the accessibility of fentanyl. You can have the most robust treatment system and not everybody is going to avail themselves of it when maybe they should, or before they end up overdosing, Kelly Dougherty, Deputy Health Commissioner of VT, via 'The New York Times'

WHO Data Suggests COVID-19 Death Toll Is 3 Times Higher Than Reported [Video]

WHO Data Suggests COVID-19 Death Toll Is 3 Times Higher Than Reported

WHO Data Suggests , COVID-19 Death Toll , Is 3 Times Higher Than Reported. CNN reports new estimates from the World Health Organization (WHO) say the coronavirus pandemic took the lives of almost 14.9 million people. Between January 1, 2020, to December 31, 2021, WHO officials say the death toll was nearly three times higher than previously reported. During that timeframe, 5.4 million COVID-related deaths were reported to the WHO. This means new data suggests an excess mortality rate of 9.5 million deaths. Excess mortality is the difference between the number of deaths that have been recorded and those that would be expected in the absence of the pandemic. , Samira Asma, assistant director-general for the Data, Analytics and Delivery for Impact Division of WHO, via CNN. Over the 24 months examined, the estimated range of excess deaths was between 13.3 million and 16.6 million. In the United States, by December 31, 2021, the estimated number of excess deaths was 932,458. Per data from Johns Hopkins University, that's almost 100,000 more deaths than previously reported in that timeframe. Knowing how many people died due to the pandemic will help us to be better prepared for the next. , Samira Asma, assistant director-general for the Data, Analytics and Delivery for Impact Division of WHO, via CNN. We need to honor the lives tragically cut short, lives we lost, and we must hold ourselves and our policymakers accountable. , Samira Asma, assistant director-general for the Data, Analytics and Delivery for Impact Division of WHO, via CNN.
