El doctor Anthony Fauci, la autoridad máxima en enfermedades infecciosas del país, dice que, si la mayoría de las personas se vacuna, se lograría cierta “normalidad” a mediados de 2021.
In a new interview, the nation’s top infectious disease expert tells us how to survive the coming months and describes how hard it is when people still insist the coronavirus outbreak is “fake news.”
Son lugares de alto riesgo de propagación. ¿Por qué no compensar a los propietarios para que cierren sus negocios para proteger la salud pública?
To stop the coronavirus, we need to stop super-spreader events.
COVID precautions may seem like overkill. But I won’t set foot in a store unless certain steps are taken.
Treinta y cuatro estados y Washington, D.C., tienen algún tipo de mandato sobre el uso de máscara, pero muchos ciudadanos y agencias del orden los ignoran descaradamente.
Americans have gotten used to all sorts of mandates, from cleaning up after dogs to stopping at intersections. There’s no reason it should be this hard to enforce ones around the coronavirus.

Surprise bills are just the latest weapons in a decades-long war among health care industry players over who gets to keep the fortunes generated each year from patient illness: $3.6 trillion in 2018.

After my husband had a bike accident, we were subjected to medical bills that no one would accept if they had been delivered by a contractor, or a lawyer or an auto mechanic.
