The CDC is tracking new COVID variant EU.1.1

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said on Friday that it is now tracking multiple additional COVID-19 variants separately, adding more Omicron descendants to a long list of novel strains that are vying for the national market.

EU.1.1, a strain that was initially identified by experts earlier this year because of its quick climb in various European countries, is one of the new varieties that the CDC is currently monitoring.

The variety, which has a few more alterations to its spike protein that may be promoting its spread, is a more distant descendant of the XBB.1.5 mutant that had risen earlier this year.

According to the CDC, EU.1.1 is now present in 1.7% of cases across the country, but may already account for 8.7% of cases in the region that includes Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming.

It is too soon to say whether EU.1.1 will cause different or new symptoms in the United States.

Health experts claim that there is little evidence that COVID-19’s effects have changed as a result of earlier versions, despite some anecdotal accounts to the contrary. Reports of shifting symptoms are further complicated by the possibility that changes in the underlying immunity of persons who are infected over time may affect how they are affected by the virus.

According to current estimates, almost all Americans either have antibodies from vaccinations, infections, or a mix of the two. According to data released by the CDC on Thursday, reinfections are now a major cause of hospitalizations and fatalities.

Utah has many incidences of EU.1.1

Utah laboratories have sequenced the most EU.1.1 infections of any state, and the state’s public health laboratory has reported almost 100 cases of EU.1.1 to international virus databases.

In contrast, laboratories in the nearby states of Nevada and Colorado have only recorded single-digit numbers of infections with the EU.1.1 sequence.

Although the nation as a whole is currently hovering around record-low levels seen during the previous spring and summer months, Utah’s overall COVID-19 patterns currently look similar to those of the rest of the country.

A group of academic and government modelers recently predicted that COVID-19 hospitalizations and deaths will likely continue to decline in the United States over the course of at least the next two years, with further peaks in the fall and winter unlikely to top prior highs.

According to CDC data, the rate of new COVID-19 hospital admissions and ER visits in Utah has mostly reduced or plateaued in recent months. There are also still much fewer reported nursing home cases than during previous winter peaks.

Requests for response from a spokeswoman for the Utah Department of Health and Human Services were not promptly fulfilled.

The majority of SARS-CoV-2 variants countrywide are still categorized by the CDC into one of four strains that make up the XBB family.

The most prevalent is XBB.1.5, which is now expected to account for only 27.0% of infections. Another is the combination of XBB.1.9.2 and XBB.1.9.1, which accounts for 24.4% of cases. With 19.9% of all circulating viruses, XBB.1.16 is the next most prevalent virus. At 10.6% nationwide, XBB.2.3 comes in below them.

The COVID-19 vaccines this autumn should be modified to target the XBB.1.5 variant, the Food and Drug Administration determined earlier this month. Officials claim that because all of these strains—as well as a wide range of their direct descendants—appears to be so closely related, the new vaccinations will increase protection for all of them.

Moderna declared on Thursday that it has already formalized the completion of its application for authority to use its newly redesigned shots for the fall in an emergency.

While the new vaccine is ostensibly intended to target XBB.1.5, the pharmaceutical highlighted research that suggests it would also provide “robust human immune responses” that are successful at defending against XBB.1.5’s relatives XBB.1.16 and XBB.2.3.

Russian militia chief suggests his mercenaries head for Moscow

0

Reuters: London Yevgeny Prigozhin, the head of the Russian mercenary force, made it seem as though he had launched an armed convoy on a Saturday 1,200-kilometer (750-mile) charge toward Moscow in an implausible attempt to overthrow the military hierarchy.

Russian local officials advised locals to avoid a military convoy that was on the main highway connecting the southern region of European Russia, which borders Ukraine, with Moscow.

After Prigozhin claimed—without offering any proof—that the military leadership had killed a significant number of his militants in an airstrike and threatened to punish them, the Russian government accused him of mounting an armed uprising.

The armed mutiny charge, which carries a maximum 20-year prison sentence, was filed against Prigozhin by the internal security agency FSB.

Many facts surrounding the rapid change of events remain unknown, but it appears to be the worst domestic issue President Vladimir Putin has encountered since he authorized a full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February of last year, which he described as a “special military operation.”

Prigozhin, whose Wagner militia was instrumental in the capture of the Ukrainian city of Bakhmut last month, has been publicly accusing Russia’s top general, Valery Gerasimov, and Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu of rank incompetence and depriving Wagner of supplies and support during its battles in Ukraine.

The ministry said in a statement that Prigozhin’s charges were “not true and are an informational provocation” as their dispute appeared to be coming to a climax.

According to Prigozhin, his actions weren’t a military takeover. However, he seemed to imply that 25,000 fighters were on their way to Moscow to overthrow the leaders of the defense establishment in a frenetic series of audio transmissions, in which the sound of his voice occasionally varied and could not be independently verified.

He had appeared to cross a new boundary in his bitter dispute with the ministry early on Friday when he said that Putin’s justification for the invasion of Ukraine was based on fabrications made up by the army’s senior brass.

Prigozhin announced on the Telegram app about 2 a.m. (2300 GMT) that his men had entered Russia from Ukraine and were in Rostov.

According to him, they were prepared to “go all the way” with the top brass and eliminate anyone standing in their way.

At about the same time, Dmitry Peskov, a Kremlin spokesperson, was quoted by the official news agency TASS as saying that all of Russia’s top security services were updating Putin “round the clock” on the execution of his directives about Prigozhin.

Mayor Sergei Sobyanin announced on his Telegram account that security in Moscow was being reinforced.

A military convoy was on the M-4 highway between Rostov-on-Don, the regional capital, and Moscow about 5 a.m. (0200 GMT), according to the Voronezh region’s administration, which warned locals not to use it on Telegram.

A convoy of several military vehicles, including at least one tank and one armored vehicle on flatbed trucks, was seen in unconfirmed video that was released on social media. It was unclear where they were or whether fighters were present in the convoy’s covered trucks. Russian flags could be seen flying from several of the trucks.

Videos broadcast on Rostov-on-Don-based channels showed tanks outside the Southern Military District’s headquarters and armed soldiers in uniform skirting the city’s regional police headquarters on foot. Reuters was able to corroborate the locations but was unable to pinpoint when the footage was taken.

Those who destroyed our lands, who destroyed the lives of many tens of thousands of Russian soldiers, will be punished, Prigozhin warned in his audio messages. I kindly request that no one show resistance.

He declared, pledging to take down any air forces or checkpoints in Wagner’s path, There are 25,000 of us and we are going to figure out why chaos is happening in the country.

The FSB said that Prigozhin had called for the outbreak of an armed civil war on Russian territory and that his activities had stabbed in the back Russian personnel engaged in combat with pro-fascist Ukrainian forces.

We implore the warriors to avoid making fatal errors, to cease using force against the Russian people, to refrain from carrying out Prigozhin’s criminal and treacherous orders, and to take steps to have him detained.

In a video message, Lieutenant-General of the Army Vladimir Alekseyev pleaded with Prigozhin to change his mind.

You are attempting to infringe on the president’s authority, he continued, who alone has the power to name the top military officials.

The deputy commander of Russian forces in Ukraine, Army General Sergei Surovikin, who has previously received plaudits from Prigozhin, stated in a video that “the enemy is just waiting for our internal political situation to worsen.

You must comply with the wishes and directives of the Russian Federation’s president of the people before it is too late. Pull the columns to a halt and put them back on their permanent bases, he stated.

Wagner-related Telegram account purportedly captured the scene of an airstrike against its fighters in an unconfirmed video. It displayed a woodland with little fires burning and trees that seemed like they had been violently smashed. One body appeared, but there was no other obvious sign of an attack.

A missile attack was launched on the camps of Private Military Company Wagner, said the caption. several victims. Witnesses claim that the attack was carried out by the Russian Ministry of Defence’s military and that it came from behind.

Wagner’s military victory, won at great human cost, has been used by Prigozhin to publicly criticize Moscow while carefully avoiding criticism of Putin.

However, he rejected Putin’s main rationale for invading Ukraine 16 months ago for the first time on Friday, for which many Russians have been punished or imprisoned.

Australian government sanctions three MH17 culprits

The Australian government has imposed sanctions on three men who were engaged in shooting down Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17.

The government has been coordinating sanctions against the trio since November 2022, when they were found guilty by the District Court of The Hague of their part in the downing of MH17 and the murder of all 298 aboard, including 38 Australian citizens or residents.

Sergey Dubinskiy, a Russian, and Leonid Kharchenko, a citizen of Ukraine, who were both convicted guilty in court and given life sentences, are the targets of the sanctions.

Sergey Muchkaev, a colonel in the Russian Armed Forces, is a Russian native who has also received sanctions from Australia.

Muchkaev led the 53rd Anti-Aircraft Missile Brigade in July 2014, which provided the Buk-TELAR missile system that brought down MH17.

Igor Girkin, a different convicted offender, received sanctions from Australia in 2014 for his support of separatist action in eastern Ukraine.

The three individuals sanctioned “actively supported actions and policies that threatened the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine as either separatist leaders within the so-called ‘People’s Republic of Donetsk’ at the time of the downing of Flight MH17 or as a member of the Russian Armed Forces,” said Foreign Minister Penny Wong.

The Australian government’s continued commitment to holding those accountable for the downing of Flight MH17 is demonstrated by these measures.

She declared that Australia would pursue all options in order to find “truth, justice, and accountability” for the victims.

Our hearts continue to be with the departed, their families, and loved ones, added Senator Wong.

Russia has been urged by Australia to work with the Netherlands to ensure that the offenders serve out their sentences under Dutch law.

5 Health Insurance in the USA: Ensuring Comprehensive Coverage for a Healthy Future

In today’s uncertain world, having access to quality healthcare is of utmost importance. Health insurance plays a vital role in providing individuals and families with the necessary financial protection against medical expenses. In the United States, a diverse range of health insurance options is available to cater to different needs. This article will delve into the topic of health insurance in the USA, exploring the various types, benefits, and considerations when choosing the right plan.

1. Understanding the Importance of Health Insurance

Health insurance acts as a safety net, providing individuals and families with access to necessary medical services, preventive care, and financial protection in the face of unexpected health issues. It allows policyholders to receive medical treatment without incurring exorbitant out-of-pocket expenses, ensuring peace of mind and a healthier future.

2. Types of Health Insurance Plans

Employer-Sponsored Health Insurance

Many individuals in the USA receive health insurance coverage through their employers. Employer-sponsored health insurance offers a range of benefits, including group rates, comprehensive coverage, and the convenience of automatic deductions from the employee’s paycheck.

Individual and Family Health Insurance

For those who don’t have access to employer-sponsored plans, individual and family health insurance provides an avenue to secure coverage independently. These plans are tailored to meet the specific needs of individuals or their families, allowing them to choose the level of coverage and benefits that align with their requirements.

Medicare and Medicaid

Medicare and Medicaid are government-funded programs that provide health insurance to specific groups. Medicare primarily serves individuals aged 65 and older, as well as those with certain disabilities. On the other hand, Medicaid offers coverage to low-income individuals and families.

Marketplace Health Insurance

The Health Insurance Marketplace, established under the Affordable Care Act, offers a variety of health insurance plans. These plans are categorized into four metal tiers: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum. Each tier provides a different balance between monthly premiums and out-of-pocket costs.

Short-Term Health Insurance

Short-term health insurance plans provide coverage for a limited duration, typically up to 12 months. They are designed to bridge gaps in coverage and provide temporary protection for individuals who are in transition, such as recent graduates or individuals between jobs.

3. Key Factors to Consider when Choosing Health Insurance

Selecting the right health insurance plan requires careful consideration of several factors that impact coverage, costs, and accessibility. These factors include:

Coverage and Benefits

Understanding the coverage and benefits offered by a health insurance plan is crucial. Evaluate the extent of coverage for doctor visits, hospital stays, specialist care, preventive services, and emergency care. Additionally, consider whether the plan covers prescription drugs, mental health services, and alternative therapies.

Network of Providers

Check the network of healthcare providers associated with the insurance plan. Ensure that your preferred doctors, hospitals, and specialists are included in the network to receive in-network benefits. Out-of-network care often entails higher out-of-pocket costs.

Premiums, Deductibles, and Copayments

Compare the premiums, deductibles, and copayments associated with different health insurance plans. Premiums are the recurring monthly costs, while deductibles and copayments refer to the out-of-pocket expenses incurred when receiving care. Finding a balance between affordable premiums and manageable out-of-pocket costs is essential.

Prescription Drug Coverage

If you rely on prescription medications, consider the coverage provided for prescription drugs. Assess whether the plan includes the medications you need in its formulary and the associated copayments or coinsurance.

Out-of-Pocket Maximums

Out-of-pocket maximums cap the amount an individual or family has to pay in a given year. Consider the out-of-pocket maximums of different plans to understand the maximum financial liability you may face in the event of significant medical expenses.

4. Tips for Navigating the Health Insurance Marketplace

The Health Insurance Marketplace offers a wide array of options, making it essential to approach the selection process with some key considerations in mind:

Assessing Your Healthcare Needs

Before exploring health insurance plans, assess your healthcare needs. Consider factors such as your age, medical history, ongoing medications, and any anticipated healthcare services. This evaluation will help you identify plans that align with your specific requirements.

Comparing Plans

Review and compare different plans available in the Marketplace. Consider the coverage, benefits, network of providers, and costs associated with each plan. Make use of online resources, such as plan comparison tools and customer reviews, to gain insights and make an informed decision.

Determining Affordability

Evaluate the affordability of each plan by assessing the monthly premiums, deductibles, copayments, and potential subsidies or tax credits. Remember to consider not only the upfront costs but also the potential long-term financial impact.

Understanding Enrollment Periods

Be aware of the annual enrollment periods and special enrollment periods if you experience qualifying life events, such as marriage, job loss, or the birth of a child. Missing these enrollment periods may result in limited options or potential penalties.

5. The Significance of Health Insurance for Financial Security

Having adequate health insurance coverage is crucial for protecting your financial security. Medical expenses, especially for severe illnesses or injuries, can be substantial. Health insurance acts as a safeguard against these high costs, ensuring that you can receive the necessary care without compromising your financial stability.

Conclusion

In a country as vast and diverse as the United States, the landscape of health insurance can be complex. Understanding the different types of health insurance plans available, considering key factors while selecting a plan, and navigating the Health Insurance Marketplace effectively are essential for securing comprehensive coverage. By investing time and effort into choosing the right health insurance, individuals and families can pave the way for a healthier future.

10 ways to reduce premature skin aging

Our skin ages due to a variety of factors. There are some things we can’t change, while there are others we can. The aging process is one thing that we cannot stop. It has a crucial role. We all develop observable facial lines over time. Our faces naturally lose some of their youthful fullness as we age. We realize that our skin is getting drier and thinner. These modifications mostly depend on our genes. In medicine, this process of aging is referred to as “intrinsic aging.

Another sort of aging that impacts our skin is one that we can control. Our environment and lifestyle choices can speed up the aging process of our skin. This sort of aging is referred to in medicine as “extrinsic aging.” We can lessen the effects that this form of aging has on our skin by taking some preventive measures.

10 Ways To Stop Premature Skin Aging

Our skin ages prematurely due in large part to the sun. Our skin can age more quickly than it would normally by doing other things. Dermatologists provide their patients the following advice to assist them avoid early skin aging.

  1. Protect your skin from the sun every day

Sun protection is necessary whether you’re running errands or spending the day at the beach. Seek out shade, wear sun-protective clothes, such as a light, long-sleeved shirt, slacks, a wide-brimmed hat, and UV-protective sunglasses, and use sunscreen that is broad-spectrum, SPF 30 (or greater), and water-resistant to protect your skin. Every day, you should put sunscreen on any exposed skin that isn’t covered by clothing. Look for garments with an ultraviolet protection factor (UPF) marking for more effective protection.

  1. Apply self-tanner rather than get a tan

Your skin ages faster each time you acquire a tan. This is accurate whether you tan outdoors, in a tanning bed, or with other indoor tanning tools. All of them give off dangerous UV rays that quicken the aging process of your skin.

  1. If you smoke, stop

Smoking dramatically hastens the aging process of the skin. It results in crow’s feet and a lifeless complexion.

  1. Avoid repetitive facial expressions

The underlying muscles are tightened as you make a facial expression. These lines become permanent if you tense the same muscles repeatedly over a long period of time. Squinting lines can be lessened by wearing sunglasses.

  1. Eat a healthy, well-balanced diet

According to the results of a few studies, eating a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables may help avoid the harm that causes early skin aging. Research findings also point to the possibility that a diet high in sugar or other refined carbs may hasten aging.

  1. Drink less alcohol

Alcohol causes skin irritation. The skin becomes dehydrated as a result, eventually causing injury. This may age us more noticeably.

  1. Exercise most days of the week

Results from a few research indicate that light exercise can increase immunity and enhance circulation. The skin may then appear more youthful as a result of this.

  1. Cleanse your skin gently

Cleaning your skin with a scrubber can irritate it. Skin aging is accelerated by irritation. Gentle washing helps to remove pollution, makeup, and other substances without irritating your skin.

  1. Wash your face twice a day and after sweating heavily

You should immediately cleanse your skin after sweating since perspiration irritates the skin, especially when wearing a hat or helmet.

  1. Stop using skin care products that sting or burn

It suggests your skin is irritated when it burns or stings. Skin irritation can make it appear older.

Note – Some dermatologist-recommended anti-aging creams may hurt or burn. This can be acceptable if you’re utilizing a prescription anti-aging product. Just be certain to inform your dermatologist.

Making lifestyle adjustments can be advantageous for anyone, even those who currently exhibit premature skin aging symptoms. You offer your skin a chance to partially repair the damage by protecting it from the sun. When smokers quit, their skin frequently looks better.

Trump’s Political Fortunes Shaken: From Unassailable to Facing Opposition

0

The political tide is shifting in favor of former President Donald Trump, who was long seen as invincible by rivals because of his sizable, devoted voter base and is now receiving greater criticism from Republican rivals and party leaders.

Since the announcement of his second indictment, 2024 GOP contenders who had previously refrained from criticizing any of his activities and had even avoided mentioning his name are now lining up to do so.

But it goes beyond the front-runners. Brad Raffensperger, the Republican Georgia secretary of state whom Trump compelled to annul the results of the 2020 election over a taped conference call on January 2, 2021, is the source of Trump’s most recent challenge. An accusation decision was anticipated this summer as a result of the hour-long call, which sparked a criminal investigation in Fulton County.

At his rallies, Trump has regularly criticized Raffensperger. On Saturday, he repeated his criticism of the call as “perfect” and made speculative statements about the outcome of the election. The Georgia crowd eventually started to jeer Raffensperger as a result.

Raffensperger is now retaliating. On Thursday, he told WRBL that a meeting between him and Trump on the debate stage might be in order.
Furthermore, Raffensperger doesn’t care too much about the debate stage. He is offering to visit any Republican institute, such as the Baker Institute for Public Policy at Rice University in Texas, the Dole Institute of Politics in Kansas, or the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in California.

Raffensperger promised a discussion. “I’ll bring a copy of my letter to Congress and a copy of my book, ‘Integrity Counts. He claimed that a study from Berkeley Research Group and Simpatico Software Systems, two companies hired by the Trump campaign to look into allegations of voter fraud in Georgia, may be brought by the former president. No indication of pervasive fraud was discovered by Berkeley and Simpatico.

The Georgia secretary of state stated that since the evidence is in favor of Raffensperger, we will discuss each argument individually. It’s uncertain and improbable that Trump would consent to that discussion. Even after threatening to boycott the GOP primary debates, he hasn’t agreed to debate his 2024 opponents. His justifications include the fact that he is the front-runner and doesn’t need to, as well as the notion that the venues and networks aren’t in his favor.
