    Getty Images United Airlines is turning to a Google-powered interactive maps to help still-scarce travelers find destinations that fit the coronavirus era. The map, which launched on United's website Wednesday, allows travelers to punch in the most they want to spend on a ticket and filter airports by their destination activities or descriptions: beaches, beer and breweries, culture, food and drink, hiking, national parks, outdoors, romantic, skiing and snowboarding, and snorkeling and scuba.

    The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) warned on Thursday that the novel coronavirus is driving discrimination towards vulnerable communities in Asia, including migrants and foreigners. The humanitarian agency surveyed 5,000 people in Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar and Pakistan and found about half blamed a specific group for spreading the coronavirus, with many mentioning Chinese people, immigrants and foreigners. “It is particularly concerning that both national migrant and foreign workers are blamed for the spread of COVID-19 as they are quite vulnerable already,” Dr Viviane Fluck, one of the lead researchers and the agency’s Asia Pacific community engagement and accountability coordinator, told Reuters.

    Coronavirus may have a silver lining, according to a study by a scientist at Dalhousie University. Dr. Shashi Gujar, with the department of pathology at Dal, along with colleagues in the United States, Denmark, France, Germany, and India, is studying if the immune response against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, could be repurposed to fight cancer using the immune system, a news release on the Dalhousie University website stated. ARE YOU PROTECTED FROM CORONAVIRUS IF YOU'VE BATTLED THE COMMON COLD? The body’s immune system detects foreign viruses and bacteria as threats but it does not do this to cancer, the release stated. Dr. Gujar explored if viruses like coronavirus can play a role as the next generation of cancer immunotherapy, according...
    After the state Legislature’s coronavirus-shortened session came to a chaotic end this week, Gov. Gavin Newsom on Wednesday left the door open to calling lawmakers back for a special session. But while they have plenty of unfinished business, the likelihood of legislators returning to Sacramento this fall is unclear. Bills meant to ease the state’s housing crisis, overhaul policing and provide help to people affected by COVID-19’s economic downtown never made it out of the Legislature by its deadline of midnight Tuesday, leaving a broad sense of disappointment from lawmakers and advocates.

    T-lymphocytes (T-cells) in some people‘s bodies may have the ability to recognize COVID-19, despite it being a new virus, according to researchers in Singapore. Their findings suggest exposure to types of coronaviruses in the past can produce “memory T-cells” in certain people's blood, possibly helping them to fight off the novel coronavirus. The researchers of the small study published in Nature are also hopeful that these T-cells may help in the development of a vaccine for COVID-19. WHY CORONAVIRUS OCCURS LESS IN CHILDREN THAN ADULTS, ACCORDING TO NEW STUDY “It is important to send the message that T-cells and not only antibodies are an essential part of antiviral immunity," Dr. Antonio Bertoletti, a professor of emerging infectious diseases at the Duke-NUS Medical School, and study co-author, told...
