London will be moved from medium coronavirus alert level Tier 1 to high coronavirus alert level Tier 2, the UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock announced Thursday,

We now all need to play our part in getting the virus under control once again, and I know the sacrifices that this will mean,” Hancock said.

Covid-19 cases are surging in Wisconsin, and “it’s going to get worse,” says Dr. Paul Casey, medical director of the emergency department at a hospital in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

So you throw on top of that an entire ward of patients with Covid-19, it stretches us to the limit,” he said.

I think we are in for a pretty bad fall and winter,” Hotez said in an interview on CNN.

Everyone needs to be careful around Thanksgiving this year and evaluate the risks and benefits of celebrating in the traditional way, Dr. Anthony Fauci said on “Good Morning America” Thursday.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, reacted to the idea of focused protection – put forward in the Great Barrington Declaration – saying the idea is nonsense, and the idea of letting the virus go without any protection measures is “ridiculous. ”

Fauci told “Good Morning America” host George Stephanopoulos that the declaration has a couple of things in it that he thinks are fooling people, “because it says things that are like apple pie and motherhood. ”

He said that hidden in the declaration is the implication that if you let people get infected and worry about essentially protecting the vulnerable, “There’s about 30% of the population has underlying conditions that make them more susceptible to getting the adverse events and outcomes of serious disease with Covid-19. ”

Fauci said the idea that “we have the power to protect the vulnerable is total nonsense,” and that has been shown to not be the case by history.

Talking to anyone who has any infectious disease or epidemiology experience will say that it’s risky and will lead to many more infections of vulnerable people which will lead to hospitalizations and deaths, he said.

“So, I think that we just got to look that square in the eye and say it’s nonsense,” he said.

Americans filed another 898,000 first-time jobless claims last week on a seasonally-adjusted basis, according to the Department of Labor.

That means it could take a long time to get back to the pre-pandemic level of around 200,000 claims per week.

Continued jobless claims, which count workers who have filed for benefits for more than two weeks in a row, stood at 10 million.
