The United States is likely to have enough safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines available to inoculate the most vulnerable Americans by the end of 2020, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said on Wednesday. This report produced by Chris Dignam.
A juror in the Breonna Taylor case said Tuesday that prosecutors skipped a major step. Prosecutors never presented the grand jury with homicide charges against three police officers. The three officers being the ones involved in Taylor’s killing, reports HuffPost. The new allegations raise additional questions over how prosecutors handled the killing of Taylor. Breonna Taylor, a Black woman, was shot by police in her own apartment in Louisville, Kentucky.
In a candid interview with the U.K.-based publication Pink News, Carole Baskin broke big news. The “Tiger King” star revealed that she has “always considered myself to be bisexual.” “Even though I’ve never had a wife, I could just as easily have a wife as a husband.” Baskin then described herself as a “tomboy” growing up, according to HuffPost. The 59-year-old Baskin said she began to explore her sexuality in the 1980s.
Joe Biden promised on Friday that, if elected, he will work towards ending discrimination. Sepcifically, discrimination against the LGBTQ community, says HuffPost. He also plans to expand economic opportunities and reform the criminal justice system. He spoke of transgender and gender-nonconforming individuals face added discrimination. Biden said violence against transgender and gender-nonconforming people is an “epidemic".
Data suggests that for every person who dies of COVID-19, they leave behind nine family members. According to HuffPost, that means nearly 2 million people in the US theoretically have experienced the death of a close relative due to the disease. It's easy to be triggered by the news, especially when COVID-19-positive President Donald Trump turns it into a campaign photo op. If you're feeling overwhelmed with grief and frustration, mental health experts encourage taking action. Grieve openly.
Formally known as bruxism, teeth grinding and clenching isn't uncommon. According to HuffPost, some estimates suggest about 10% of Americans regularly grind their teeth, and 20% regularly clench their teeth together. Now, dentists say they’re seeing a lot more of both during the COVID-19 pandemic. A dentist can, by examination, tell you if you're grinding, clenching, or both. Your dentist can also create a custom mouth guard to wear at night.
