Coronavirus cases are rising across the United States, and with holiday season almost upon us there are some things you should consider before you gather the family for celebrations.
According to the nation's leading infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, there are some specific things you should take into consideration before holiday gatherings are organized. Dr. Fauci says that when you think of the holiday season you think of "innocent, lovely" functions with family and friends. Dr. Fauci warns that there are other things to consider before you commence these gatherings, as it could serious endanger a family member or a close friend.
Here's what Dr. Fauci says, "Do you have people in your family that are elderly that might have underlying conditions like someone on chemotherapy or other things that weaken their immune system? Do you really want to get a crowd of 10, 15, 20 people, many of whom are coming in from places where they've gone from crowded airports to planes getting into the house?"
The Food and Drug Administration has issued a product recall for a very common vitamin, as this vitamin could potentially be dangerous.
The recall has been posted to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) bulletin and is for Fusion Health and Vitality LLC's Core Essential Nutrients supplement "2020 Lots of CORE essential nutrients" and "Immune Boost Sublingual Vitamin D3". The FDA bulletin post reads that the product is being recalled because it contains an unapproved food additive called "hordenine HCl", and Immune Boost was found to have labeling not in line with FDA guidelines.
FDA explains that hordenine HCl is "possibly unsafe when taken by mouth", and can cause stimulant side effects such as "rapid heart rate and high blood pressure". Additionally, the bulletin post says that Fusion Health and Vitality LLC hasn't yet received any reports of adverse events related to this recall. The FDA recommends anyone who has this product to stop using it and return to Fusion Health and Vitality for "destruction". For more information on this story, check out this link here.
The holiday season is almost upon us, and ahead of the celebrations, the nation's leading infectious disease expert has warned Americans that doing this could endanger families.
Thanksgiving is almost here, and many families across the country are planning on celebrating with family and friends. In some instances, these family and friends are located in different states and require travel, which is a big concern for public health experts. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's leading infectious disease expert, has asked Americans to do a "risk assessment" before celebrations commence.
Here's what Dr. Fauci said, "Obviously each individual family has to make, as I've said it recently over the past few days, a risk benefit assessment about the risk you're willing to take in traveling and in congregating in the usual warm atmosphere of 10, 15, 20 people at a home dinner." Dr. Fauci continued and said, "Although those are wonderful parts of our tradition."
Everyone has been living with face masks for quite some time now, and with what seems to be viable vaccines on the horizon, we are starting to look at an approximate date for when we can throw that mask away.
According to the nation's leading infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, there is still quite a considerable amount of time between now and the permanent disposal of the face mask regulations. The infectious disease expert was recently asked when we could expect to throw our masks away, and Dr. Fauci said, "think that we're going to have some degree of public health measures together with the vaccine for a considerable period of time."
Adding, "But we'll start approaching normal - if the overwhelming majority of people take the vaccine - as we get into the third or fourth quarter ." As you can see from Dr. Fauci's response, the date of when we can put those face masks down permanently depends on how many people are practicing public health recommendations and how many people get the vaccine when it's available.

There is trouble brewing, or at least according to White House coronavirus advisor, Dr. Anthony Fauci.
According to the nation's leading infectious disease expert and director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr. Anthony Fauci, there is a specific group of people that are going to cause "trouble" for the coronavirus pandemic fight in the US.
Dr. Fauci pointed on CBS "Face the Nation" that "people at airports", despite the federal recommendation to avoid travel, "are going to get us into even more trouble than we're in right now." Dr. Fauci has made this point ahead of the coming Thanksgiving celebrations, where many people are planning on visiting loved ones in different states.
A mysterious monolith has been discovered deep in the Utah desert, discovered by a sheep-counting expedition flying a helicopter over it and seeing the huge structure standing there.
The Utah Department of Public Safety issued a statement on its website, explaining that it discovered the monolith on November 18, 2020 when the Utah Department of Public Safety Aero Bureau was collaborating with the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources on counting horn sheep while in a helicopter, in a particular portion of southeastern Utah.
On this mission, the team spotted "an unusual object" and then landed their helicopter nearby. The Utah DPS explain: "The crew members found a metal monolith installed in the ground in a remote area of red rock. The crew said there was no obvious indication of who might have put the monolith there".
The nation's leading infectious disease expert has pointed his finger at one particular group of people who, according to him, are going to cause more COVID-19 "trouble".
White House coronavirus advisor, and director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr. Anthony Fauci has said that "people at airports" who are traveling to family members for Thanksgiving "are going to get us into even more trouble than we're in right now." Dr. Fauci pointed his finger at this specific group of people during an interview with CBS' "Face the Nation" on Sunday.
Dr. Fauci further explained that the effects of air travel for Thanksgiving won't be seen until the following weeks, which makes it "very difficult" to be able to gauge what kind of impact it has made ahead of the coming colder months and Christmas holiday. On top of that, Dr. Fauci also said that a substantial portion of the people that are being hospitalized are between the ages 40 and 59.

Coronavirus cases across the country aren't looking very good at all as cases seemingly are on the rise and don't seem to be slowing down any time soon.
With cases on the rise, there are many people who are no doubt sick of the public health measures that we have become accustomed to. So, when will those public health measures end? And more specifically, when can we throw away that face mask? That question was posed to the nation's leading infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci.
Elisabeth Rosenthal asked Dr. Fauci that very question, and he replied by saying that "I think that we're going to have some degree of public health measures together with the vaccine for a considerable period of time. But we'll start approaching normal - if the overwhelming majority of people take the vaccine - as we get into the third or fourth quarter [of 2021]."
White House coronavirus advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci has said that everyone needs to consider this one "innocent" activity as it could lead to a death.
According to Dr. Fauci, who is the nation's leading infectious disease expert, people need to consider how they are gathering for the upcoming holidays. Thanksgiving is around the corner, and then after that, there is Christmas. For obvious reasons, Dr. Fauci has recommended that people consider the risk of having a large family gathering, as it could lead to the spreading of COVID-19, which could eventuate into a death.
Here's what Dr. Fauci said, "When you think of the holiday season and the congregating indoors at what are innocent, lovely functions like meals with family and friends, you've got to really think" of the risk factors. Dr. Fauci continues and says that people need to consider the following; "Do you have people in your family that are elderly that might have underlying conditions like someone on chemotherapy or other things that weaken their immune system?".
You don't need to be an epidemiologist to be able to see that coronavirus cases across the country are surging, and these four states in particular times are rough in terms of new cases.
Cases are on the rise in Florida, South Dakota, Texas, and Mississippi, and each of these states seemingly has no plans to enter a lock down to stem new infections. Instead, each of these states has opted for increasing coronavirus restrictions, such as businesses closing earlier. A spokesperson for Florida Governor Ron DeSantis recently said, "The Governor will not lockdown and hurt families who can't afford to shelter in place for 6 weeks."
South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem echoed a similar statement, saying that lockdowns don't actually stop the virus from spreading and that locking down will "destroy small businesses and jobs, and they make it difficult for families to put food on the table." Texas Governor Greg Abbot said that Texas won't implement a new lockdown, "We are not going to have any more lockdowns in the state of Texas. Our focal point is going to be working to heal those who have COVID, get them out of hospitals quickly, make sure they get back to their normal lives."
