    EFE videos These are the four phases with which England plans to return to normal London, Feb 22 (EFE) .- The reopening of schools on March 8 begins a gradual process of deconfinement in England that will conclude at the earliest on June 21, although each of its four phases will only be applied if the four criteria set by the Government. To decide whether to vary the restrictions introduced in January – with equivalent measures in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland – the Executive will consider the evolution of the vaccination program; if hospitalizations and deaths from covid-19 are reduced; if the level of contagion is sustainable for the public health system, and if the new variants of the coronavirus are under control. These are the four stages, with their corresponding dates and measures: FIRST PHASE – March 8 The schools reopen and extracurricular outdoor sports are allowed. Two...
    February 11, 2021 11:29 PM | With information from EFE 15 minutes. US President Joe Biden predicted Thursday that his country will have enough doses of COVID-19 vaccines for almost its entire population, some 300 million people, at the end of July, after reaching new agreements with Pfizer and Moderna. . “We are on track to have supplies for 300 million Americans by July,” Biden announced during a visit to the National Institutes of Health. “That may not sound like the urgent progress we need, but let’s be clear: when I came to power this country did not have a plan“he added. Biden announced that his government signed contracts this Thursday for which the US will get another 200 million more doses of coronavirus vaccines, one hundred million of them from Moderna and another 100 million from Pfizer. “We have bought enough vaccines to vaccinate all Americans,” the president promised....

    Savannah Rychcik January 31, 2021 0 Comments Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is confident Democrats have enough votes to pass another COVID-19 relief package. “I believe that we do because it’s hard for me to imagine any Democrat, no matter what state he or she may come from, who doesn’t understand the need to go forward right now in an aggressive way to protect the working families of this country,” Sanders said during an appearance on ABC’s “This Week.” He added, “Look, all of us will have differences of opinion. This is a $1.9 trillion bill. I have differences and concerns about this bill, but at the end of the day, we’re going to support the president of the United States, and we’re going to come forward, and we’re going to do what the American people overwhelmingly want us to do. The polling is overwhelming. Republicans, Democrats, independents.” Watch the...
    Washington — President Biden announced his administration is boosting the weekly supply of vaccines to states and territories by 16% next week, and said he hopes to have enough doses to vaccinate 300 million Americans by the end of the summer or early fall. "This will be one of the most difficult operational challenges we've ever undertaken as a nation," Mr. Biden said about the effort to distribute vaccines. He also said he plans to give governors more advance notice on forthcoming allocations of the shots, adding that the vaccine distribution process established by the Trump administration was "in worse shape than we anticipated." Vaccine supply to states, territories and Indian tribes will climb to 10 million doses next week, up from 8.6 million and continue at that rate for the next three weeks. Governors will be given a three-week forecast of their vaccine allocations, giving them more time to prepare...
    The first two very short chapters of WandaVision have given a lot to talk about. The argument was ingenious enough to avoid giving clues about what is happening. Are Wanda and Vision in an alternate universe? Is it a hallucination? Or a portentous new manifestation of the Scarlet Witch’s abilities? For now, nothing has been said and everything seems to indicate that the plot of the series will have careful enough in what to reveal in future. However, what is obvious is that sooner or later someone will have to unravel the enigma. The program has been a critical and public success, so it is already considered a more than interesting look at the Marvel approach on the just started phase four. Adding to the complete creative freedom Taika Waititi has been given for Thor: Love and Thunder is the buzz of the multiverses in Spider-Man 3. So the eccentric,...

    BOSTON (CBS) — Things can obviously change between now and Friday night at 7:30 p.m., but at this very moment, the Boston Celtics will be able to field a team for its contest against the Orlando Magic. According to Thursday’s injury report, the Celtics will have the required eight players available for Friday night’s game against the Magic at TD Garden. Jayson Tatum, Robert Williams and Carsen Edwards have all been ruled out due to health and safety protocols, while Kemba Walker and Romeo Langford have been ruled out due to injuries. Jaylen Brown, Semi Ojeleye, Javonte Green and Daniel Theis are all questionable due to health and safety protocols, but Grant Williams and Tristan Thompson have been removed from the injury report. That duo has appeared to cleared quarantine after ending up on the list last week. Head coach Brad Stevens said he had nine players taking part in...
    Moderna CEO Stephane BancelSteven Ferdman | Getty Images The CEO of Covid-19 vaccine maker Moderna warned Wednesday that the coronavirus that has brought world economies to a standstill and overwhelmed hospitals will be around "forever." Public health officials and infectious disease experts have said there is a high likelihood that Covid-19 will become an endemic disease, meaning it will become present in communities at all times, though likely at lower levels than it is now. Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel appeared to agree Wednesday that Covid-19 will become endemic, saying "SARS-CoV-2 is not going away." "We are going to live with this virus, we think, forever," he said during a panel discussion at the JPMorgan Healthcare Conference. Health officials will have to continuously watch for new variants of the virus, so scientists can produce vaccines to fight them, he said. Researchers in Ohio said Wednesday that one of the two new...

    The Philadelphia Eagles had themselves a strugglefest offensively in the first half. Things are not going well for the Philadelphia Eagles these days, especially on offense. While the Birds scored a touchdown in the final seconds of the first half, it was another rough showing for Carson Wentz and the rest of the Eagles offense. Prior to their 15-play, 75-yard drive that resulted in a score, the Eagles were boasting an embarrassing yards per play average. For a hot minute there, the Eagles were averaging an unthinkable 9.6 inches per play offensively. What?

    The National Institutes of Health director, Dr. Francis Collins, said Thursday that U.S. citizens might not have full access to a coronavirus vaccine until July. Both Dr. Anthony Fauci, a member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, and U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar had previously said that it would be available to most in the United States earlier. In an AARP conference call, Collins said that frontline workers, nursing homes, and people at high-risk would be prioritized for the vaccine in December. However, there will not be enough doses to fully vaccinate that population until February or March. “By the spring, people who are not in one of those high-risk groups will start to also have the chance to get access — we’ve got to start with the high-risk groups first," Collins said. "And by the summer, hopefully around July or so maybe our country...
    By John Miller and Kate Kelland ZURICH/LONDON (Reuters) - With COVID-19 vaccine trial results looking positive, governments and pharmaceutical firms face their next daunting challenge: convincing the world to get inoculated. Public resistance to vaccines has been much discussed this year, but the issue became very real on Monday when Pfizer and BioNTech announced their candidate was more than 90% effective in large trials - hoisting an actual shot onto the horizon. Numerous opinion polls carried out before and during the pandemic showed confidence is volatile, and that political polarization and online misinformation threatens uptake. Many people have concerns about the accelerated speed of COVID-19 vaccine development. The World Health Organization estimates about 70% of people must be inoculated to break transmission of the virus. Since it is unlikely a vaccine, once approved, will be immediately available for the masses, experts said getting medical workers on board will be critical....
    The Florida Gators will have enough guys to play Missouri this upcoming Saturday. The Gators have been dealing with some major coronavirus issues, and haven’t played since losing to Texas A&M a couple weeks ago. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) However, they’re apparently ready to go. According to FootballScoop, head coach Dan Mullen revealed Monday during his press conference that the squad will have enough healthy players to play the Tigers, but he wasn’t “going to get into the specifics” of who will be available.   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Florida Gators Football (@gatorsfb) on Oct 22, 2020 at 10:04am PDT This is great news for the Gators. They haven’t played since October 10, and fans are eager for the Gators to get back on the field. Now, it sounds like everything will be good to go...
    Top US infectious disease expert Dr Anthony Fauci believes the average American could realistically have a coronavirus vaccine by April, he said Wednesday.  'That will likely be within the first quarter of 2021 by let's say April of 2021,' Dr Fauci told CBS Evening News.   His predicted timeline does not fit with President Trump's. At campaign rallies this week - after his own bout with coronavirus - Trump promised his supporters that that vaccines are coming 'very soon.'  Dr Fauci added that the public getting access to COVID-19 vaccines by April was the best case scenario.  'That would be predicated by the fact that all of the vaccines that are in clinical trials have proven to be safe and effective,' he added.  As of now, trials for three experimental vaccines - made by AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson and Inovio - are paused due to potential safety issues, although experts say...
    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the United Nations General Assembly that Iran will have enough nuclear material to produce two bombs in just a matter of months. Netanyahu delivered his annual address before the General Assembly on Tuesday and used the platform to criticize the “shameful” 2015 Iran nuclear deal and call on the international community to stand against Iranian nuclear pursuits. He pointed out that he was the leading dissenter of the deal, dubbed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. “I opposed it because the nuclear deal did not block Iran’s path to the bomb. It actually paved its way to it. I opposed it because the deal’s restrictions on Iran’s nuclear program were only temporary and were no way tied to Iran’s change of behavior,” Netanyahu said. In this image from UNTV video, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, of Israel, speaks in a...
    During an interview with CNN on Thursday, Operation Warp Speed Chief Adviser Dr. Moncef Slaoui stated that there will likely be “tens of millions of doses” of a coronavirus vaccine “in December and January,” and is “optimistic that we will have vaccines for everybody within the year 2021, ideally within the first half of the year 2021.” Slaoui also said he believes the vaccine will be “highly efficacious. I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s in the 90%.” Slaoui said, “We will probably have a few tens of millions of doses in December and January, and probably it will be appropriate to immunize those individuals at the highest risk of severe disease with the COVID virus. But I am optimistic that we will have vaccines for everybody within the year 2021, ideally within the first half of the year 2021. That’s our objective.” He also stated, “It’s very hard to predict,...
    The trendline seems alarming: Nearly every day brings more deaths than the last, in numbers California has never before seen during the pandemic. In a little more than a week, the state has set four coronavirus death records, hitting an all-time high — 193 deaths — on Wednesday. Experts say those numbers are the expected result of the surge in cases that started last month after communities around the state eased their lockdown restrictions. “It’s so sad to see these deaths being recorded and the numbers going up, and it’s scary, but (people) have to recognize that this represents the spread of the infection around four weeks ago,” said Dr. John Swartzberg, an infectious disease expert with the UC Berkeley-UCSF Joint Medical Program. “So the question that we’re really interested in now is: Well, that was really bad, but where are we right now?” Where we are now is nearly...
            by Adam Ellwanger  Recently, I read with great interest James Lindsay’s essay called “The Woke Breaking Point.” There, he invites his readers to ask friends and acquaintances “What would it take for you to say that the Woke movement has gone too far?” This, he suggests, is a way to help people keep themselves honest: if you consider in advance what state of affairs, specifically, would be “too far,” then you will be able to recognize better the excesses of the totalitarian Left and more ready to resist them at the point when it becomes absolutely necessary. Reframing the question, he writes: “Ask. When is enough, enough?” To his credit, Lindsay recognizes that posing this question is a tricky rhetorical gambit. “To get real about this, you shouldn’t expect this conversation to go well,” he writes. “It might, of course, depending on the relationship, but it’s very...
    (CNN)On Saturday, tens of thousands of demonstrators are expected to march in Washington, DC, to demand criminal justice reform in what may be the largest protest in the nation's capital since George Floyd died at the hands of police officers in Minneapolis. Julian ZelizerIn the two weeks since his death, a national civil rights movement has blossomed. Though there have been some instances of looting and violence, by and large, the peaceful #BlackLivesMatter protests have shaken the conscience of the nation by forcing a conversation about racism and policing that was long overdue. The scale and scope of the protests are huge, and rallies have sprung up in both big cities and rural towns across America in a show of solidarity that is unlike anything else we have seen in recent decades. There have been some early signs of progress. On Friday, Minneapolis issued a temporary measure that would...
