    One year after the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic was declared worldwide, there is still much to learn about the virus that causes Covid-19, especially as it relates to its long-term effects and symptoms that may persist. Recent research published in the journal JAMA Network Open has tried to shed more light on what is known as Long, persistent Covid or postcovid syndrome. The World Health Organization (WHO) also expressed itself about it in its day: “In some people, some symptoms may persist or reappear for weeks or months after the initial recovery. This can also happen to people with a mild illness“, said this organization in a document last December, according to CNN. These are the symptoms or signs which, according to the recent study, could be indicators that the disease has already passed.

    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo remained defiant and unapologetic on Monday as he claimed that the 'toxic political environment' is to blame for the backlash he has received over COVID-19 deaths in the state's nursing homes. Cuomo slammed 'conspiracy theories' around the scandal as he stated in a press conference that his March order on nursing homes was the subject of 'distortion' and not responsible for bringing coronavirus – and more deaths – into long-term care facilities. The order, which he said followed expert guidelines at the time, stated that COVID-19 patients could be send back from hospitals to nursing homes, as it was believed then that they were not infectious. The governor came under fire after families claimed it added to the number of deaths, yet he said on Monday that 98 percent of the care homes already had COVID-19 in the building before the sick patients were sent...
    New York : A security camera caught him violating protocols. Photo: Antonio Ojeda / EFE The coronavirus pandemic has left us for almost a year quite sad stories of relatives of patients who contracted COVID-19, who sadly could not say goodbye to them before they died. That was what happened recently to a police officer from Peru, whose story went viral after a security camera captured the effort he made, by trickery, in order to see his father for the last time. Several media in that country have identified the young policeman as Jampier Gaspar Montes, 21 years old, who is a non-commissioned officer of the National Police (PNP). Desperate for wanting to hear from his father, who had to be hospitalized on February 9 after catching coronavirus, it occurred to him to pretend to be a doctor to be able to have a relationship...
    “A single dose” of vaccine against Covid-19 is enough for patients who have already had the disease, French health authorities recommended on Friday, a measure that would save a large number of doses in a context of constrained supply . These people “have already developed (…) an immune memory. The single dose of vaccine will thus play a reminder role”, explains the High Authority for Health in its opinion, which has yet to receive the government’s approval. The authority recommends waiting “beyond three months” after the illness, “and preferably six months”, before injecting this single dose. “To date, no country has clearly positioned itself on a one-dose vaccination for people who contracted Covid-19 prior to the vaccination”, underlines the HAS. The experts behind this recommendation even considered … Follow La Tribune Share economic information, receive our newsletters
    France said today that patients who have already had Covid-19 should only get one dose of a vaccine, making it the first country to adopt such a strategy and potentially freeing up millions of doses amid an EU-wide struggle for jab supplies.  Health officials said a single dose would be enough to 'remind' the body how to fight off the virus, because an earlier infection would already have generated an immune response similar to a first shot of the vaccine.   With 3.4million people infected in France in the last year, the new advice will reduce the demands on France's spluttering jab roll-out as it struggles against bungled EU purchasing, rigid bureaucracy and high levels of vaccine scepticism.  It also comes after France lashed out at Britain for its own deviation from the two-dose strategy - a move which has helped the UK vaccinate six times more people than France has...
    People cured of Covid-19 “have already developed an immune memory during the infection. The single dose of vaccine will thus play a reminder role”, explains the High Authority for Health (HAS) in its opinion, which has yet to receive government approval. The authority also recommends to wait “beyond three months” after the illness, “and preferably six months”, before injecting this single dose. “To date, no country has clearly positioned itself on a one-dose vaccination for people who contracted Covid-19 prior to the vaccination”, she underlines. In recent days, this solution was mentioned in several studies carried out in the United States and Italy, and not yet evaluated by other scientists. In addition to the health benefits, the researchers behind this work pointed out that giving a single injection to people already ill in the past could save doses in a context of constrained supply. The French government generally follows...
    In addition to science and technology, there is an interest in manga and anime in this medium of communication. So when someone comes up with mixing them, we can’t get enough of the emotion in our chest. But also, when this mixture refers to an element of Latin America, we overflow with joy. It was precisely what happened to us this Monday with the recent publication of SOUL and its relationship with Evangelion. As everyone should know in the Atacama desert, in Chile, there is the largest astronomical project on our planet. It is the Atacama Millimeter / Submillimeter Array, better known as SOUL. In this region of southern territory there are a total of 66 antennas that serve as radio telescopes. Its function, in a very generic brief explanation, is to observe millimeter wavelengths. That is, it captures extremely detailed images of the stars. One of the many purposes...
    Adding Supreme Court justices? Progressives may be on collision course with Joe Biden Apes, robots and men: The life and death of the first space chimp Referee already had a history with the Chiefs. The Super Bowl was the latest chapter. The defining moment of Super Bowl LV on Sunday wasn’t so much one play as it was one drive, namely the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ 55-second touchdown march that closed the first half. The drive increased Tampa Bay’s lead to 21-6 and punctured any momentum the Chiefs hoped to build entering halftime. Kansas City would score only three more points the rest of the way. © Patrick Smith/Getty Images Patrick Mahomes lobbied for a call from referee Carl Cheffers during the Super Bowl. The drive will be remembered for two reasons, one being Chiefs Coach Andy Reid twice calling timeout in an attempt to get the ball back...
    Pfizer's vaccine will work against the South African coronavirus variant — although its mutations could still mean thousands of injected people are vulnerable, a study has suggested. Researchers at New York University tested how well the variant of the virus could be destroyed by the blood of 10 people who had received Pfizer's jab. They found the immune antibodies made by the vaccine were still able to neutralise – destroy – the coronavirus, but the body didn't make as many of them. While antibody levels would be still high enough to fend off Covid-19 in most people who had the vaccine, and they offered more protection than in people who had had the illness already, they did not work as well as they would on older versions of the virus.  The study was published yesterday in the wake of an alarming study that claimed Oxford and AstraZeneca's vaccine only offers...
    An adorable dog has made a miraculous recovery after being rescued from a butcher who almost killed her. Sarah, a two-year-old small spitz, was rescued from a Chinese dog meat market in April, last year, where she lived in horrible conditions. The poor pooch nearly died after a butcher cut her throat but in a fantastic story of survival is now living her best life, waiting for a loving family to adopt her. Sarah was in a gutter searching for water when she was discovered by animal charity workers who rescued her with a life-threatening cut across her throat and one of her eyes smashed in.

    AS many as a third of Americans might already have some level of coronavirus immunity, analysis suggests. Almost 110million people — or 33.2 percent of the population — have either been infected with the virus or received a first vaccine dose, reports the New York Post. 5A Covid vaccination and testing center at a hospital in Brooklyn, NYCredit: Getty Images - Getty The Centers for Disease Control estimates the true number of infections could be more than three times higher than the official figure. So far almost 26million positive tests have been recorded in the US, according to Johns Hopkins University. But the CDC estimates some 83.1 people had the virus between February and December. Another 5.6million infections were recorded by the Covid Tracking Project between January 1 and Thursday. Experts say those who have been exposed to the virus — even with no symptoms — are likely to have some level...
    BOSTON (CBS) – Dr. Mallika Marshall is answering your coronavirus-related medical questions. If you have a question for Dr. Mallika, email her or message her on Facebook or Twitter. Dr. Mallika is offering her best advice, but as always, consult your personal doctor before making any decisions about your personal health. Chris writes, “After testing positive for COVID, how long does it take for a test to turn negative? Someone said antibodies will stay positive for the next 90 days.” There are some people who continue to test positive for COVID with the PCR nasal swab test for weeks, even after they’re feeling better. However, a blood test looking for antibodies could remain positive for many months. That doesn’t mean you’re still infectious or that you’re protected from getting the infection again, just that you’ve had the infection at some point. Paulette writes, “I have had severe medication allergies most of my life. Do you...
    The Biden administration plans to buy 100 million more doses each of Pfizer and Moderna's COVID-19 vaccine in order to vaccinate 300 million Americans by the end of summer.  'The biggest problem, I hope you're all asking me by the end of summer is that you have too much vaccine leftover,' Biden said at the White House Tuesday afternoon.   Biden delivered the update Tuesday on the heels of Vice President Kamala Harris getting her second shot of the Moderna vaccine at the Bethesda, Maryland headquarters of the National Institutes of Health.    President Joe Biden gave a COVID-19 update on Tuesday explaining that the administration would buy 100 million doses of each of Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines  Vice President Kamala Harris received her second dose of the Moderna vaccine Tuesday at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda  Dr. Anthony Fauci (left) and second gentleman Doug Emhoff...
    ONE in six people have been infected with Covid in parts of England. Across the country, seven million people have now had the bug. ⚠️ Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest news & updates 3The percentage of people testing positive for antibodies in areas of England from blood samples in December Yorkshire has seen the highest percentage of people catching the virus, with 17 per cent of the population having antibodies. Residents of London and the North West come in second and third - with 16.4 per cent and 15 per cent of people there respectively having been infected. Overall in England, one in eight people had had coronavirus by December last year. According to the latest data from the Office for National Statistic's Covid-19 Infection Survey, around seven million people have been infected throughout the pandemic.

    A week before Christmas 1972, when I was a newly elected 30-year-old United States senator, excited to be down in Washington DC interviewing staff, I got a call.  My wife Neilia and our 18-month-old daughter Naomi had died in a car accident while out shopping. Our sons Beau and Hunter had been in the car, too. They pulled through without permanent damage, but not before spending weeks in the hospital. The pain seemed unbearable in the beginning. I remember vividly, after Neilia died, not being able to open the closet door of the bedroom we shared. I remember the anguish of smelling her scent on the pillows and looking at the empty spot on the bathroom sink where her toothbrush had been. I wasn’t able to stay in that bedroom; I sold my house and got out. It took me a long time to heal, but I made it through,...
    Manuel Pellegrini he left really satisfied with the performance of his players in The Alcoraz, where they knew how to adapt to a complicated field and to the freezing temperatures to almost always take the initiative in the game -until the Paul-, which allows them to add three valuable points to stay in the upper middle part of the table. “I’m happy, the team played a very complete game. They have not had occasions, we look for the party from the beginning. We looked for the goal in the first half and in the second we continued looking for it calmly. A good game was played in defense and in the creative phase. Winning means more confidence. We still have one match from the first round, it would be important to finish with 26 points so as not to give the top players an advantage. We want to...
    People who have COVID-19 should definitely get the vaccine - but they should probably wait a while after recovery to take the first dose, said Dr. Anthony Fauci. People may assume that once they’ve gotten COVID-19, they can’t get it again and don’t need to get the vaccine - but that is not true, Fauci said. On Thursday, Jan. 6, during a C-Span interview, Fauci said that people should wait about 90 days after they have gotten COVID-19 to take the vaccine. Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said that people who have recovered from COVID-19 are protected from getting the virus again, but just for a little while. “We don’t know how long,” Fauci said about post-COVID-19 recovery immunity. “So, in order to ensure that they don’t get reinfected, we do recommend that people who have been infected actually do get a...
    Early humans living two million years ago already had the skills and tools they needed in order to cope with the effects of climate change, study shows.  Archaeologists from the Max Planck Institute studied changes to the environment and habitats of early hominins at the Oldupai Gorge heritage site in Tanzania.  Also known as the 'Cradle of Humankind', new field work at the site revealed our ancestors remained stable despite environment changes over 200,000 years.  These early humans stayed in a habitat continuously throughout - despite having to cope with global warming, wildfires, droughts and volcanic eruptions. It shows migrations 'out of Africa' were possible even during the early human periods - as our ancestors possessed the ability to expand into new ecosystems. Olduvai (now Oldupai) Gorge, known as the Cradle of Humankind, is a UNESCO World Heritage site in Tanzania. Early human used a wide diversity of habitats...
    THOSE who have already had Covid are "probably immune" to the new mutant strain, the Government's Chief Scientific Officer has said.

But, speaking at Downing Street last night, Sir Patrick Vallance said it appeared people who had been...
    If I’ve already had the coronavirus, can I get it again? It’s possible, but such cases seem to be rare. Evidence is growing that people whose bodies mounted a strong defense to the virus are unlikely to test positive again for at least several months and maybe longer. It’s not unusual to develop some immunity to a virus after an infection, since our bodies are generally better at recognizing and fighting off bugs they’ve encountered before. And that seems to be the case with the coronavirus as well, though scientists are still trying to figure out how long any protection might last. Some reinfections have been confirmed, but two new studies suggest that’s very unusual. In one, only two out of 1,265 health workers in the United Kingdom who were previously infected ended up testing positive again for the coronavirus in the following six months. In another study of...

    The long-awaited moment has finally arrived: The first doses of the highly anticipated coronavirus vaccine are officially here, with the very first jab administered on Monday to a critical care nurse in New York. The rollout of Pfizer and BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine comes just days after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) OK’d the companies’ request for emergency use, making it the first vaccine against the virus to receive such approval.  “We do know that people who have had COVID will have immunity for a period of months to years. We just don't know how long,” said Dr. John Whyte, the chief medical officer of the health care website WebMD, in an email to Fox News.

    The oldest daughters of late Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen will challenge their father's final trust and the team's top executives in court, arguing that their father was already suffering from the effects of Alzheimer's when the document was finalized in 2009.   Five weeks have been set aside for the July 2021 trail, which could unseat the trustees of Bowlen's estate as the club's effective owners.  The trial was scheduled to begin September 1 via videoconference in front of Arapahoe County Court Judge John E. Scipione. It is now expected to be held in Scipione's courtroom next July providing the COVID-19 crisis abates. The case pits Amie Bowlen Klemmer and Beth Bowlen Wallace, Bowlen's oldest daughters from his first marriage, against the trio of trustees who have run the team for the last seven years. The trust was empowered in 2009 to designate Bowlen's successor upon his death or incapacity....
    Iceland was one of the first countries to reopen its borders to visitors last summer. Kevin Kopf/Shutterstock Iceland was one of the first countries to reopen its borders to visitors last June and tested all travelers for COVID-19. After a second wave in the summer, it tightened restrictions on incoming travelers, asking them to either quarantine for 14 days, or take a test on arrival, quarantine for five days, and then take a second test. But from December 10, Iceland will allow travelers that can prove that they have recovered from the coronavirus to skip both testing and quarantine. While experts agree that reinfection is rare and that patients generally do develop some sort of immunity, we don't know enough yet about how long immunity can last. It's worth noting that while the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention no longer advises against nonessential travel, it does warn...

    Prime Minister Boris Johnson is self-isolating for two weeks after coming into contact with a Member of Parliament (MP) infected with COVID-19, despite having already fended off the Chinese virus earlier in the year. “Hi folks, I’ve been instructed by our NHS Test & Trace scheme to self-isolate for two weeks, after being in contact with someone with Covid-19,” the Tory leader announced on social media. “I’m in good health and have no symptoms, and will continue to lead on our response to the virus & our plans to #BuildBackBetter” he added. In the video message accompanying the post, he insisted that while he was “fit as a butcher’s dog” and “bursting with antibodies”, but insisted that “we’ve got to interrupt the spread of the disease, and one of the ways we can do that now is by self-isolating for 14 days when you get contacted by NHS Test and...
    Boris Johnson has been forced to self isolate after coming into contact with an MP who tested positive for Covid-19. On Thursday, the Prime Minister held a 35-minute meeting with a group of MPs including Lee Anderson who later tested positive for the virus. Mr Johnson has no symptoms of Covid-19 and will continue to work from Downing Street, his official spokesperson said.  The PM nearly died during his battle with coronavirus earlier this year.  Intensive care doctors at St Thomas' Hospital in central London plied Mr Johnson with 'litres and litres' of oxygen as his chances of survival balanced on a knife-edge. News of Mr Johnson's second stint in isolation comes one day before the Government's big relaunch after the last few days brought political chaos to Downing Street. Events culminated in the PM's Svengali Dominic Cummings dramatically carrying his belongings out the front door of No10 in a cardboard box following a brutal reckoning that saw...
    Those flouting masks after previous coronavirus infection and assumed immunity can still carry the virus and transmit it to others, doctors say. Reinfection is also possible, though these cases have been far and few between. Health experts told Fox News that, despite studies, there is still uncertainty over how long immunity lasts after infection. Not to mention, upon reexposure, the virus can linger in airways and then spread to others. Those flouting masks over previous coronavirus infection and assumed immunity can still carry the virus and transmit it to others, doctors say.

    Chief Justice John Roberts, Trump's best friend after Sen. Mitch McConnell. The Supreme Court has already puts its thumb on the scales for Donald Trump and Republicans in this election through unsigned orders on their "shadow docket," ruling on everything from absentee voting to felon disenfranchisement in the states. What's particularly disturbing about it, court watchers say, is the lack of transparency. They're not "ruling" with explanatory text. They're just orders. “This idea of unexplained, unreasoned court orders seems so contrary to what courts are supposed to be all about,” Nicholas Stephanopoulos, a law professor at Harvard, told The New York Times. “If courts don’t have to defend their decisions, then they’re just acts of will, of power. They’re not even pretending to be legal decisions.” These decisions—at least nine of them—come from emergency applications from states since April seeking to settle election disputes. They have been considered and issued without any oral...
    Amazon has officially canceled Crucible, its free-to-play multiplayer shooter. It’s the end of a rocky journey for the game, which was first launched in May after years in development before being put back into closed beta in July. “We very much appreciate the way that our fans have rallied around our efforts, and we’ve loved seeing your responses to the changes we’ve made over the last few months, but ultimately we didn’t see a healthy, sustainable future ahead [for] Crucible,” the Crucible team said in a blog post. If you’re in the closed beta, you’ll still be able to play the game in some form for a short while. The developers will be hosting a “a final playtest and community celebration” in the next few weeks, according to the blog. Once that’s done, matchmaking will be disabled, but you’ll be able to play custom games (which are expected to...
    Am I immune to the coronavirus if I’ve already had it? You have some immunity, but how much and for how long are big unanswered questions. There’s evidence that reinfection is unlikely for at least three months even for people who had a mild case of COVID-19. That’s how long New York City researchers found stable levels of protective antibodies in a study of nearly 20,000 patients of the Mount Sinai Health System. Reinfection so far has been rare. The best known example: Researchers in Hong Kong said a man had mild COVID-19 and then months later was infected again but showed no symptoms. His second infection was detected through airport testing, and researchers said genetic tests revealed slightly different strains of the virus. It’s actually evidence the man’s immune system worked like it should. Very few diseases leave people completely immune for life. Antibodies are only one piece of...

The news of Barrett’s past exposure and recovery from the coronavirus was especially important in light of her recent close contact with several people known to have tested positive this week, including Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), Notre Dame President Fr. John Jenkins, and President Donald Trump himself, all of whom were at the Rose Garden event where Barrett’s nomination was announced. Lee, along with several other Senators, also met with Barrett on Capitol Hill during the past few days. As a number of political observers noted, all of these people were seen in close proximity to others, without wearing face masks, and sometimes indoors. BREAKING: Notre Dame President Fr.

The CDC no longer advises against nonessential travel, though it warns that "travel increases your chance of getting and spreading COVID-19." Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. As countries reopen to tourists amid the coronavirus pandemic, some have banned people from certain countries entirely, made negative COVID-19 tests mandatory, or asked visitors to quarantine.

    Stuffed peppers can take many forms, but there’s one simple secret ingredient that will make any version the absolute most delicious you’ll ever eat. So what’s the secret to the best stuffed peppers ever? It’s salt. I know, SHOCKING revelation, right? But hear me out! The thing about most stuffed bell pepper recipes is 3that they call for salt in the filling, not for the peppers themselves. Without salt, the peppers are flabby and bland, merely a filling case. With a sprinkle of salt, they transform into a sweet and powerfully savory part of the dish. Photo Credit: Chowhound OK, more than a sprinkle; you’ll want to salt the inside and outside (if you’ve peeled the peppers—if not, you can skip the outside part) and then be sure to properly salt the filling too. Do this for big stuffed bell peppers and little stuffed jalapeño poppers, whether you bake, broil, or grill them. Do it for cheese-stuffed chiles...

    OXNARD (CBSLA) — An Oxnard man who police say has been repeatedly arrested this year was arrested again Wednesday on suspicion of driving a stolen vehicle and possessing vehicle master keys. (credit: Oxnard Police Department) Jacob Perryman, 35, was found at about 5 a.m. Wednesday inside a green Nissan truck that had been reported stolen and tried to run away, according to Oxnard police. Detectives with the department’s property crimes unit, who had been checking unattended vehicles due to an increase in car thefts in the area, gave chase and took him into custody a short distance away. Police say Perryman had already been arrested four times this year for property crime and narcotic-related offenses. Perryman was arrested on suspicion of driving and possessing a stolen vehicle and vehicle master keys, and being in possession of a stolen vehicle with prior arrests.
    In a Tuesday interview with Spain’s El País Semanal, Univision anchor Jorge Ramos remarked that black Americans “already had” a member of their community as president — a reference to former President Barack Obama — and looked forward to the “next giant step” of a Latina such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) being elected to the White House. A transcript is as follows:  RODRIGUEZ MANTILLA: Do you hope to see a Latino president? JORGE RAMOS: Of course! Not just to see one, but I hope I’m able to cover one as a journalist. There are more Latinos than African-Americans. They’ve already had one. The next giant step would be to see a Latina in the White House. MANTILLA: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, once she’s old enough to run, after turning 35? RAMOS: She’s part of the generation that my 31-year-old daughter Paola belongs to. MANTILLA: How do you define them? RAMOS: Direct, fearless. They tell it like it...
    New York City has had more shootings this year than in the whole of 2019, after another violent Saturday night tipped the scales.  A 24-year-old man walked bleeding into Lincoln Hospital in The Bronx on Saturday night, making the number of shootings this year rise to 777. Last year there were 776 recorded shootings, according to NYPD data analyzed by the New York Post.  'It only gets worse from here,' said Joseph Giacalone, a retired NYPD sergeant and an adjunct professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. 'As the shootings continue, so will retaliation. It's a vicious cycle that the NYPD worked hard to mitigate, but that they are no longer able and in some cases willing to do.'  NYPD investigates scene of a triple-shooting in Inwood, Manhattan, July 5, as violence surges Scene of a shooting in the Bronx, July 7.

    By Jacqueline Howard | CNN The immune systems of some people who have not been exposed to the novel coronavirus could have some familiarity with the pathogen — possibly helping to reduce the severity of illness if that person does get Covid-19, a new study suggests. The study, published in the journal Nature on Wednesday, found that among a sample of 68 healthy adults in Germany who had not been exposed to the coronavirus, 35% had T cells in their blood that were reactive to the virus. T cells are part of the immune system and help protect the body from infection. T cell reactivity suggests that the immune system might have had some previous experience fighting a similar infection and may use that memory to help fight a new infection. So how could their immune system have reactive T cells if they never had Covid-19? They were “probably acquired...

    Washington (CNN)Months into the coronavirus pandemic, much about the disease remains unknown. As several countries attempt to regain a sense of normalcy despite recent surges in cases, politicians and scientists alike are working to better understand how the virus spreads and how best to prevent future outbreaks. At the core of these efforts are a few critical questions: Can children transmit the virus? If you get the virus, how long are you contagious? Afterwards, are you immune or can you get re-infected? The answers to these questions will influence not only how countries reopen schools and offices but also have implications for how useful any eventual vaccine will be.Animating the debate on one particular point are some comments that Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul made in a July interview in which he claimed that he, along with millions of others, are now immune from the coronavirus because they had already...
    Roman Bogatov (Photo by Jeff Bottari/Zuffa LLC via Getty Images) UFC 251 has experienced its fair share of groin strikes. There have been a plethora of groin strikes during the prelims of UFC 251 and it’s just a few fights in. Specifically, during the Zhalgas Zhumagulov vs. Raulian Paiva and Leonardo Santos vs. Roman Bogatov bouts, groin strikes were a common theme. Santos and Paiva were able to earn respective victories against the fellow newcomers, but it came with a bit of controversy. In a close fight, Paiva landed a strike that left Zhumagulov in noticeable pain, not once but twice. The DWCS alum was eventually able to control the majority of the bout, but of course, what people will remember the most are the groin strikes that delayed the fight for several minutes on both occasions.

    The publishers of Mary Trump's book have revealed they have already printed 75,000 copies and did not know about her non-disclosure agreement with her uncle and his siblings until recently. Simon & Schuster said it had already sent vast numbers of the tell-all memoir to booksellers in a rebuttal to the Trumps winning a temporary injunction against them on Tuesday. The publisher's chief executive Jonathan Karp said they only found out two weeks ago that Mary signed an agreement not to write a memoir back in 2001. During the negotiation for the book, which Simon & Schuster won after a bidding war with 10 other publishers, Mary claimed she had the 'full power and authority' to write it and there was 'no impediment' to its publication. Simon & Schuster claim that Mary's book, which the blurb says will talk about the 'toxic' Trump family, will actually provide 'valuable eyewitness source...

    Saudi Arabia has banned international visitors from making the annual Islamic pilgrimage, or Hajj, in a bid to control the spread of the coronavirus. Only a token number of people currently living in the kingdom may take part this year, an announcement on state media says. An estimated two million people would otherwise have journeyed to Mecca and Medina this summer for their once-in-a-lifetime visit. Riyadh said Monday the hajj would be “very limited” with only pilgrims already in the country allowed to perform the ritual, marking the first time in modern Saudi history that foreign visitors have been barred. #Statement issued by the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah regarding Hajj of 2020 pic.twitter.com/UGCShFZw1n — Foreign Ministry
    The suspect, a 43-year-old German, is currently imprisoned for drug trafficking, having already served two-thirds of his detention and has requested early release. It will ultimately be up to the Federal Court of German Justice, the highest court in the country, to decide whether Christian B., the suspect recently identified in the mysterious disappearance of Madeleine McCann 13 years ago, will be able to benefit from an early release, said the Braunschweig city court on Monday. The Federal Court has been asked to consider this matter since the lower courts of Kiel and Braunschweig have been unable to agree on which jurisdiction was responsible for making such a decision. Suspect applies for parole The suspect, a 43-year-old German man, already convicted of pedophilia, is currently imprisoned for drug trafficking in a prison in Kiel, in the north of the country.

    The Justice Department's attempt to block the release of John Bolton's tell-all book has been denied.  Judge Royce Lamberth denied the request to block the sale of the former national security adviser's memoir, 'The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir' in a ruling Saturday.   Lamberth, a Reagan appointee, heard arguments Friday over Zoom from Bolton's lawyer Charles Cooper and Deputy Assistant Attorney General David Morrell, representing the government.  This came after the Trump administration sued Bolton on Tuesday in order to postpone the release of his book because of concerns that classified information could be exposed The book was leaked to the media the next day.  It contains a number of explosive claims about President Trump, including that he asked China for help with his re-election bid - a move similar to how Trump interacted with Ukraine, which led to him being impeached.   The Justice Department's attempt to...
    More than 1,000 workers at German meat processing company Tönnies tested positive for Covid-19, local officials said on Saturday. A total of nearly 7,000 employees were quarantined for testing, including more than 3,100 who have already been tested. The slaughterhouse, located in Rheda-Wiedenbrück, in North Rhine-Westphalia, is one of the largest in the country. It is the leader in its sector for the processing of pork. The business has become a major focus for Covid-19. Soldiers were even dispatched there to assist in the search for people who came into contact with the sick, as well as the processing of test results. Last month, Tönnies had already experienced an outbreak of contamination, albeit a smaller one. All of the infected had been quarantined. The company was then criticized for the working conditions it imposes on its employees, mostly migrant workers from Bulgaria and Romania and forced to live together...
