someone who died:

    A third of Americans say they now know someone who has died from COVID-19 — double the figure from just this past summer, a new poll shows. Thirty-three percent of people surveyed over the past few days reported knowing someone who died, the highest figure since the start of the pandemic, according to researchers of the Axios-Ipsos poll. Meanwhile, the number of Americans who fear getting sick from the coronavirus dropped to 69 percent — from 74 percent two weeks ago, the survey found. The number of people social-distancing also dropped — from 79 percent to 74 percent — for the same period, researchers said.

    (CNN) — Slightly more than half of US adults — 54% — now say that they know someone who has been hospitalized or died due to Covid-19, according to a new survey from the Pew Research Center. It’s a drastic uptick since late May, when a previous Pew survey found that just 20% of Americans knew someone who’d been hospitalized or died due to Covid-19. The results reflect how rapidly coronavirus cases continue to surge across the US, which has recorded over 14.2 million cases. The newest survey was conducted between November 18 and 29 and included 12,648 respondents.  As of the first day the survey was conducted, there were around 11.5 million cases of Covid-19 reported in the US. Nearly 3 million cases have been added since. The survey results, released Thursday, also found some racial disparities in who Covid-19 is affecting: 71% of Black Americans are likely to say they know someone who has been...

    CNN anchor Kate Bolduan broke down on air Tuesday as her guest told the heartwrenching story of her sister’s passing from coronavirus complications. Bolduan’s guest, Maureen Fagan, appeared on the show as the nation surpassed the grim milestone of 200,000 Covid-19 deaths — revealing that her sister Adeline, a 28-year-old doctor, passed away from the virus on Saturday. “Two hundred thousand is not just a number,” Bolduan told viewers. “It is lives. Each death is someone with a future, someone with plans, someone with goals — with a family, like 28-year-old Adeline Fagan.” Maureen went on to express how difficult it has been to process her sister’s death, adding that she believes her and her family will get through the hard time together. Maureen explained that her sister was getting better before hospital staff discovered she was unresponsive during a routine check. She then told Bolduan that Adeline passed away in her...
    A British Airways flight attendant has opened up about the devastating impact the pandemic has had on her job, claiming there's 'tension in the air' and a sombre atmosphere due to most people flying for 'compassionate reasons'. The senior cabin crew member for BA, identified only as Alex, spoke to The Points Guys about the changes to long haul flying since the outbreak of coronavirus. While before the pandemic, Alex - who flies out of London Heathrow - would wake up 'excited' ahead of her shift, she now dreads it because most people are travelling for 'compassionate reasons' rather than going on a fun holiday. She said the 'exciting' atmosphere of flying has disappeared, not helped by the fact  passengers are required to wear face masks and have little-to-no meal service.    A British Airways flight attendant has revealed what it's like to fly during the pandemic, revealing there's 'tension in...

    JOLIET, Ill. (CBS) — A controversy has exploded about a video obtained by the CBS 2 Investigators. The video has just surfaced, even though Eric Lurry, the man who is seen in it, died in the custody of Joliet police nearly six months ago. It is another example of police departments across the country, holding back critical videos that raise questions about misconduct. But in this case, it was a Joliet police field training sergeant who blew the whistle. CBS 2 Investigator Dave Savini spoke exclusively to Sgt. Javier Esqueda, a 27-year veteran of the Joliet police force, about breaking the blue wall of silence. As Savini reported on Tuesday night, we learned the video shows police hitting a man in handcuffs and putting police baton into his mouth. The police misconduct allegedly happened after Lurry was put in the back of a police car and taken to the Joliet...
