He told MPs on Wednesday: " The epidemic was doubling every three to four days before lockdown interventions were introduced. So had we introduced lockdown measures a week earlier, we would have then reduced the final death toll by at least a half", Mr Ferguson said.

Helen Jacoby, an infectious disease specialist at St. Joseph's Health Hospital. These were the details of the news COVID-19: Twitter backlash for WHO's confusing comment for this day. "It's very rare ", she said. The WHO previously based their guidelines on preliminary evidence from the earliest outbreaks , which indicated that the virus could spread from person-to-person contact, even if the carrier was asymptomatic .
This comes after previous guidance stated that there was no need for suspected healthy people to wear a mask in public. While the government has made it mandatory for all to cover mouth and nose using mask or cloth, the latest guidelines set by the World Health Organisation has changed its stance from just covering the face to using three-layered masks.

Health Secretary Jeane Freeman warned that fewer deaths were recorded on weekends and warned that there were still "probable" deaths.
The anti-malaria drug has been touted as a "miracle cure" for Covid-19, but the scientific evidence so far is confusing. Small-scale studies in China and France then hinted it might help patients. The findings come in the wake of deep concern in academic publishing that led to an article being retracted in the Lancet - one of the world's most prestigious medical journals .
Dr Maria Van Kerkhove, the WHO's Covid-19 technical lead, said the organisation's updated guidance on face masks was based on "new, novel research that we didn't have a month ago". Tedros warned that while masks help protect people from contracting the virus, they can also be an avenue for infection if not handled properly. Wearing face masks is an "altruistic act" and primarily a tool for " source control" in the community - in which the practice is more about protecting others if you ...
Fauci also said Phase III trials for a vaccine candidate developed by Moderna are expected to start in early July and another candidate from AstraZeneca is proceeding on a similar track. Fauci added that he is more concerned about the durability of response than whether the vaccine will achieve a protective response. Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said in an interview with the Journal of the American Medical Association that production ...
However, a day after its publication over 50 clinicians from across the world raised questions about the trial method and authenticity of the data that the researchers used to conclude about the dangers of the drug. The findings led to the pause of some global clinical trials studying hydroxychloroquine so researchers could check for any safety concerns. Results were no different among a subgroup of participants who were taking zinc or vitamin C, which some people believe might help make ...
Two of the cases were from Grand Forks County. It's the 11th day a row the country has recorded no new cases of Covid-19. There have been 17,624 cases (61.4 per cent) related to an outbreak or identified as a close contact of a previously confirmed case.
Overall, 12% of those taking hydroxychloroquine developed COVID-19 as did 14% taking the placebo, the findings showed. That difference was not statistically significant, and "it's also not clinically meaningful", Rajasingham says. "I think both sides - one side who is saying "this is a risky drug " and the other side that says "this works" -neither is correct", said Boulware.
While Gilead stated that this was done to protect patients from the drug's unknown side effects, physicians argue that excluding the sickest patients from clinical trials bias the data. A second phase of the study added up to 1,000 additional patients with moderate manifestations, and the results will be available in the coming months.

He continued: "But to control the virus everyone needs to stay alert and strictly stay 2 metres apart from those you do not live with". "These changes will let friends and families start to meet up with loved ones", he said. But I am much more optimistic about that than I was. "He should have acted, he was too weak to do so". The infection rate, or R number, which must remain below one to keep the virus in retreat, is now between 0.7 and 0.9, slightly down on the range of 0.7 to 1 last ...
Algeria decided in late March to treat patients infected with the COVID-19 illness with a combination of hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin, an antibiotic. Alleging that it is mispropaganda against affordable HCQ for making expensive new drugs, Bhandari said, "Of late, cardiac complication of Covid-19 is being blamed on HCQ".
She said: "If we have over 50,000 extra deaths this year that would be about an extra 10%".

The FT, using its coronavirus model, has suggested that the number of excess deaths likely to have been recorded since the pandemic began is more than 63,000.
