Vaccines Are Coming, but Pandemic Experts Expect a ‘Horrible’ Winter


Each week, good news about vaccines or antibody treatments surfaces, offering hope that an end to the pandemic is at hand.

And yet this holiday season presents a grim reckoning. The United States has reached an appalling milestone: more than one million new coronavirus cases every week. Hospitals in some states are full to bursting. The number of deaths is rising and seems on track to easily surpass the 2,200-a-day average in the spring, when the pandemic was concentrated in the New York metropolitan area.

Our failure to protect ourselves has caught up to us.

The nation now must endure a critical period of transition, one that threatens to last far too long, as we set aside justifiable optimism about next spring and confront the dark winter ahead. Some epidemiologists predict that the death toll by March could be close to twice the 250,000 figure that the nation surpassed only

Nearly half of U.S. adults fear surprise bills, do,


Nov. 30 (UPI) — Nearly half of adults in the United States report that concerns over unexpected medical bills keeps them from seeking care, according to a survey by the American Heart Association.

In addition, more than 40% of respondents indicated that if they received an unexpected medical bill for $1,000, they would not have the money to pay for it, the data showed.

Two-thirds of respondents with private health insurance also said they have received an unexpected medical bill, and of those, one in three was not able to pay it.

Perhaps as a result, more than 80% of survey respondents would like to see Congress pass legislation to end surprise medical billing, the American Heart Association said.

“Surprise medical bills are a major driver of financial anxiety and disruption for families nationwide that are already straining under the weight of an ongoing pandemic,” said Mitchell S. V. Elkind,

    JOINT BASE LANGLEY-EUSTIS, Va. , Nov. 24, 2020 — Soldiers assigned to the 221st and 3rd Military Police Detachments conducted an advanced law enforcement rapid response exercise at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Virginia, Nov. 18, 2020.

    The Soldiers sought to enhance their proficiency in taking down threats which may arise against the Fort Eustis community.

    Participants in the training used non-lethal training ammunition which fired paintball-like projectiles. This provided a more realistic training experience for all players in the exercise.

    “This exercise presents a call for assistance in a community with a possible active shooter or hostage situation,” said U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Larry Eley, 221st MPD operations non-commissioned officer in charge. “There’s only so much you can get from blank firing or laser systems, so having a simulated round actually hit the individual provides instant response to perform the actions correctly.”

    The exercise took place away from the base
