The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has released only a fraction of the data it has collected on the COVID-19 pandemic, The New York Times reported, citing several people familiar with the data.

The CDC released information two weeks ago on the effectiveness of boosters for those under 65 but did not provide data for 18-49 year olds, the age group least likely to benefit from boosters. because they are already well protected by the first two. blows, The temperature noted.

The CDC recently created a dashboard of the amount of COVID bacteria found in sewage, though state and local agencies have sent the CDC their own sewage data since the pandemic began, The temperature noted. The appearance of COVID in sewage can help health authorities predict outbreaks, scientists have said.

Some outside health experts were stunned to discover that the CDC had withheld information about COVID.

“We’ve been asking for this kind of granularity of data for two years,” said Jessica Malaty Rivera, an epidemiologist and member of the team who led the Covid Tracking Project. The temperature. A more detailed image would have improved public confidence, she said.

The temperature said the data withheld could have helped local and state health authorities respond to different stages of the pandemic and better protect vulnerable populations. The lack of recall information on 18-49 year olds has forced federal health agencies to rely on data collected in Israel on recall recommendations, The temperature noted.

When asked to comment, CDC spokeswoman Kristen Nordlund said the agency withheld some information “because ultimately it’s not ready for prime time yet. listen”.

The CDC prioritizes the accuracy of information, she said, adding that the CDC is concerned that the public may misinterpret certain information.

Rivera dismissed the idea that information should be withheld to avoid misinterpretation.

“We run a much greater risk of misinterpreting the data with data gaps, than sharing the data with proper science, communication and caveats,” she said.

The release of data is also delayed by bureaucratic procedures. The CDC must manage information from the US Department of Health and Human Services and the White House as well as different divisions within the CDC before publication. Sometimes government agencies need to be notified before the information is widely disseminated.

Paul Offit, MD, vaccine expert and adviser to the Food and Drug Administration, called for more openness.

“Tell the truth, present the data,” he said. “I have to believe there is a way to explain these things so people can understand them.”

The CDC has been criticized on other occasions for its lack of transparency. Last year, the CDC released information on breakthrough cases, but only when a person was sick enough to be hospitalized. Vaccinated people who tested positive and isolated at home were not included in the tally, leading to questions about vaccine effectiveness.

  • EU wants pandemic treaty with measures to strengthen prevention
  • Negotiators responsible for drafting the text meet on Wednesday for the first time
  • In side talks, US calls for reform of virus alert rules

BRUSSELS, Feb 9 (Reuters) – The European Union is pushing for a global deal to prevent further pandemics that could include a ban on wildlife markets and incentives for countries to report new viruses or variants, a an EU official told Reuters.

International negotiators will meet for the first time on Wednesday to prepare talks for a possible treaty, said the official, who is not authorized to speak to the media and therefore declined to be named.

The aim is to reach a preliminary agreement by August.

However, Brussels has so far struggled to gain full support for a new treaty from the United States and other major countries, some of whom want any deal to be non-binding. Read more

A spokesman for Charles Michel, the president of the European Council who in November 2020 proposed a new pandemic treaty, said he had no new comment on the matter.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

According to the most widely accepted theory, the COVID-19 pandemic began with the transmission of the SARS-CoV-2 virus from animal to human at a wildlife market in China.

Although Beijing was initially praised by the World Health Organization (WHO) for promptly notifying it of the new virus, the United States has notably accused China of withholding information about the likely origins of the outbreak.

Among the measures the EU wants to see in the treaty is a gradual closure of wildlife markets, the EU official said.

Incentives for countries to report new viruses are also considered crucial to help with rapid detection and avoid cover-ups.

Last year, southern African countries were hit with punitive flight restrictions after they identified the Omicron variant of the coronavirus, which some say could deter reporting of future outbreaks if the incentives are not attractive enough.

VACCINES FOR VIRUS ALERT

The official said the incentives could include guaranteed access to drugs and vaccines developed against new viruses, which poorer countries have struggled to get quickly during the COVID-19 pandemic as wealthier states grow. rushed to secure supplies.

States that detect and report a new virus could also receive immediate support, which could involve shipments of medical equipment from a global stockpile.

The talks will involve delegates from six countries, representing major regions of the world – Japan, the Netherlands, Brazil, South Africa, Egypt and Thailand, officials said.

Brazil, which will represent the countries of North and South America, is in favor of a non-binding treaty. Read more

The EU, which will be represented by the Netherlands, wants to introduce legally binding obligations to prevent and report new virus outbreaks, according to an EU document seen by Reuters.

If an agreement is reached, the treaty should be signed in May 2024.

As part of an overhaul of global health rules, countries are also negotiating changes to the International Health Regulations, a set of global rules aimed at preventing the spread of infectious diseases.

The United States wants to strengthen rules to enhance transparency and grant the WHO rapid access to outbreak sites, two sources told Reuters following the talks.

February 1, 2022

OLYMPIA, Wash. — Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler passed his rule banning insurers from using credit information to set auto, home and renter’s insurance for three years, beginning March 4. In addition, it proposes a new transparency rule requiring insurers to provide policyholders with a written explanation of any premium change.

“I take this action against insurers’ use of credit scoring in response to the economic harm that many people have suffered during the COVID-19 pandemic – harm that has had a significant impact on people who are already financially vulnerable,” Kreidler said. “We know that now, more than ever, credit reports are unreliable. It’s unfair to base the amount someone pays for frequently required insurance on an unreliable and fluctuating factor like a credit score.”

The federal government recognized that many people are suffering financially and passed the CARES Act which allows lenders to provide relief to certain people in financial difficulty. However, the protections do not apply to everyone. And when the CARES Act ends, any default could then be reported or show up as a blackout period on someone’s credit report. This makes the credit history that insurers use unreliable and inaccurate. As it is unclear when the public health emergency will end, the rule requires insurers to temporarily remove the inaccurate credit score factor. The rule will be in effect for three years after federal or state emergency declarations end, whichever is later.

Kreidler’s rule is designed to be rate-neutral to insurers, meaning that any rate changes are spread across all policyholders. Some will see a one-time rate increase and others a rate decrease, depending on how much reliance their insurer has relied on the credit score. Based on consumer stories he heard during the public hearing on the rule, Kreidler asked insurers to provide additional information, including:

  • An illustration called a histogram that shows the range of premium changes due to removal of credit information as a rating factor. Some insurers have already provided these illustrations as part of their rate filings.
  • Copies of all communications used by insurers to describe the new credit rule to their policyholders.

He asked for copies of the communications because several investigations conducted by the ICO on behalf of consumers revealed that despite what their insurer had told them, the change in premium was not entirely due to the removal of the credit score. . In some of the responses they received, it was nearly impossible for the insured to determine what caused their premium to increase.

Only 12 companies representing 5.2% of the relevant market provided the information requested by Kreidler.

Based on the lack of transparency and answers, Kreidler is proposing a rule that requires insurers to provide policyholders with clear written explanations for any rate changes. This proposed rule will include stakeholder participation and a public hearing.

“If an insurer wants to change your coverage amount, you deserve to know why,” Kreidler said. “And it shouldn’t be difficult to understand the reasons that led to the change. If your insurance company wants your business, you deserve an honest and clear answer. We will help them give you one with this rule.

Below is a bar chart of the average premium change for the 12 companies that responded to Kreidler’s initial request for information on the impact of removing credit as a rating factor on their policyholders:















“I understand that some people will be upset that this rule is moving forward,” Kreidler said. “They think they deserve a discount because of their good credit rating, but I have to look at fairness for all consumers in our state. is not fair.

“During the three years that this rule is in effect, I intend to work with the Legislative Assembly, stakeholders and the insurance industry to see how we can permanently end the use of credit score in setting insurance premiums. It’s an outdated practice that relies on your creditworthiness instead of how you drive or treat your property. And if you think you’re more deserving of a good rate in because of your high credit scores what do you say to good drivers with low credit scores who pay an average of 80% more than you do We need to join other states that have done this and end this once and for all to this discriminatory practice.

In an interconnected world dependent on the Internet, the methods and reasons used by fraudsters to deceive people are constantly changing. Scammers monitor the news to take advantage of the chaos and current information that can be effective in convincing people to part with their money or vital information. The COVID pandemic, widespread unemployment, the increase in online shopping are just a few examples.

If you add these situations above to historically trusted Medicare / Social Security scams, bogus sweepstakes / lotteries, and bogus charity scams, you’ll get the top five scams of 2021.

1. The unemployment scam – In what is described as the most massive scam opportunity ever, scammers have rushed to exploit the Federal Unemployment Pandemic Assistance (PUA) program. By using bots to file bogus unemployment claims on behalf of real people, fraudsters were able to steal an estimated $ 200 billion from the government program. People who never filed for unemployment received letters telling them that their PUA benefits were expiring. The identities of these people were stolen, and the documents filed also caused serious tax liability issues for those compromised.

We are still getting a lot of calls regarding this scam. If you may have been the victim of the scam, go to the Ohio Department of Employment and Family hotline at 833-658-0394 or online at unemployment.ohio.gov and press “Report Identity Theft” button to report fraud.

2. Social security / Medicare scams – In these scams, victims receive a scary phone call or email claiming to be from Social Security Administration or Medicare stating that there has been suspicious activity on the victim’s account. Victims are told that unless they provide personal information or credit card numbers for the payment of fines, penalties or fees, their account will be suspended.

If you receive any of these scam calls or emails, do not give out any information. Hang up immediately. If you receive a call regarding Social Security, contact the Office of the Inspector General of Social Security online at https://oig.ssa.gov/report.

3. Amazon scam – An “erroneous charge” of $ 499 on a victim’s account would be “detected by Amazon”. In trying to “credit the account” $ 499, $ 3,499 was credited instead. To rectify the “mistake,” the fake Amazon rep said the victim would have to buy $ 3,000 in CVS gift cards and relay the numbers on the back.

Keep in mind: Amazon never asks you to disclose or verify sensitive personal information or offer you a refund that you don’t expect.

4. Sweepstakes / lotteries scam – Often known as the Publishers Clearing House (PCH) scam, victims receive a phone call or email claiming they were the lucky winners of the PCH, or other raffle or lottery. In order to collect their winnings, victims are told that they have to pay an upfront fee in the form of prepaid debit cards or MoneyGram.

Remember, if you didn’t participate, you can’t win it! Don’t buy the Cards or MoneyGram!

5. Pop-up charity scams – Disasters, veterans, and vacations are all reasons Americans generously donate their hard-earned dollars to help those in need. Unfortunately, these reasons are also exploited by crooks who create bogus “pop up” charities to take advantage of well-meaning donors. They mimic real nonprofits by using direct mail, email, and telemarketing tactics to defraud the generous-minded.

Make sure your donations go to legitimate causes by checking with watchdogs like the Better Business Bureau’s Charity Navigator, CharityWatch, and Wise Giving Alliance. Also pay attention to the charity’s name and web addresses. Scammers often imitate the names of familiar and trusted organizations to deceive donors.

These were the top five scams in our region in 2021, but this article is only scratching the surface. Call us at BBB if you come across a situation that you think is suspicious. We can help you!

  • Researchers recently conducted an observational study on dog owners during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • The study assessed the effects of the pandemic on the finances, health, lifestyle and emotions of these people.
  • Dog owners were less depressed and reported more social support during the pandemic compared to a control group who did not own dogs.
  • However, the study has some important limitations.

There is a lot of science supporting the adage that dogs are man’s best friend.

For example, according to research, owning a dog can lower risk of death following a cardiovascular event, such as a stroke or heart attack. It is also possible to train dogs to identify hypoglycemia in people with Diabetes.

Likewise, there is plenty of research showing the different ways that dogs help improve the well-being of their human owners.

Now, a team of researchers from Nestlé Purina Research in St. Louis, MO, report that dog owners reported less depression and felt they had more social support compared to a control group during the COVID pandemic -19.

Dr François Martin, Senior Author and Section Head of the Behavior and Well-Being Group at Nestlé Purina Research, spoke with Medical News Today:

“The context of the COVID-19 pandemic has provided a unique opportunity to better understand how dogs can provide social support to their owners, alleviate increased symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression, and contribute to happiness. “

Researchers believe their study shows that owning a dog has helped protect pet owners from some of the negative psychological impacts resulting from the pandemic. They also say it adds to the scientific evidence that dogs provide positive support to their owners during difficult times.

The results of this observational study appear in the journal PLOS ONE.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had both a psychological and physiological impact on humans. Recent research studied the effect of the pandemic on the mental health of healthcare workers and other at-risk groups.

Other research has reported a threefold increase in depressive symptoms in the United States during the pandemic. The UK also saw an increase in mental health issues around this time.

Social support helps to balance the negative effects that important life events can have on the psychological and physiological well-being of humans.

In the recent study, the authors define social support as involving one or more of the following:

  • an awareness of being cared for
  • the knowledge of being loved, esteemed and valued
  • the feeling of belonging to a united network

Previous research shows that social support helps people moderate life stress and has a beneficial effect on the cardiovascular, endocrine, and immune systems.

Additionally, previous research shows that social support may have a positive effect on the quality of life of people with conditions such as arthritis, asthma, and Diabetes.

For the observational study, Dr. Martin and his team used data from 768 dog owners and 767 potential dog owners in the United States, all aged 18 and over and who took an online survey.

The researchers defined “potential dog owners” as those who did not own a dog during the study period but were very interested in owning one in the future. This group served as a control.

The team excluded from the study respondents whose dogs were service or therapy animals.

The study survey included various demographic questions as well as questions about the dogs owned by the respondents. Participants also answered questions regarding the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on their finances, health, lifestyle and emotions.

“As in the general population, dog owners and potential dog owners have been affected by the pandemic,” said Dr. Martin.

“Overall, 33% of our respondents said their health had been somewhat to extremely affected, 45% said their finances were somewhat to extremely affected, 67% said their emotions were somewhat to extremely affected. extremely affected and 72% said their lifestyle had been somewhat to extremely impacted.

Additionally, the researchers rated participants’ responses using six different psychometric scales:

  • Pet Attitude Scale: This scale measures a person’s positivity towards their pet.
  • Miller-Rada Scale of Commitment to Pets: This scale estimates how much time, energy, and resources an owner is willing to give a pet.
  • Multidimensional scale of perceived social support: Researchers use it to determine the level of social support a person feels they are receiving.
  • Revised Center for Epidemiological Studies Depression Scale: This scale examines how well a person meets the criteria for depression.
  • Generalized Anxiety Disorders Scale: Researchers use this scale to measure anxiety.
  • Oxford Happiness Quiz: It is a technique to assess the happiness of a person.

With the results in tabular form, Dr Martin said his team found that dog owners reported having much more social support available to them compared to the group of potential dog owners.

“We also found that dog owners had significantly lower depression scores than potential dog owners, but the two groups had similar anxiety and happiness scores,” he added.

According to Dr Martin, the results suggest that owning a dog may have given people a stronger sense of social support, which, in turn, may have helped alleviate some of the negative psychological effects of the COVID pandemic. -19.

Regarding further research, Dr Martin said that one thing that emerged from the study was that the contribution of companion dogs to the well-being of people might be more apparent in people in precarious states, such as than those who experience high stress or social problems. isolation.

“Compared to those who reported high perceived social support, people – dog owners and potential dog owners – who reported low social support had about twice as high scores for depression and anxiety, and their happiness scores were significantly lower, ”explained Dr. Martin.

Dr Martin said MNT that the depression scores of participants with low perceived social support were almost three times higher than the depression scores of participants with high levels of perceived social support.

However, since there were such large differences between the groups – 77 in the weak group, 420 in the moderate group and 1,032 in the high group – he explained that “it was not possible to analyze the data. statistically “.

“This suggests that the effects of dog ownership may be more measurable in populations of people with low to moderate social support,” he added. “Future research should focus on people with low and moderate social support. It is an avenue that seems important to explore.

MNT also spoke with Dr. Stephen L. Stern, assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Joe R. & Teresa Lozano Long School of Medicine at the University of Texas Health Sciences Center at San Antonio. He is also a member of the STRONG STAR research consortium.

He explained that he was concerned with the design and conclusions of the study:

“Although the samples are very large, it is not clear to what extent they were representative of the general population,” he said.

“In addition, members of the control group could have differed from dog owners other than not having a dog. The two groups could also come from areas that were differently affected by the pandemic at the time of the investigation. “

– Dr Stern

Overall, Dr Stern thinks the findings are ‘overblown’, stating:

“There was a statistically significant difference between the two groups – possibly due to the very large sample sizes – but the effect sizes were very small and the differences in the rating scale scores were not. clinically significant. “

It’s also worth noting that Nestlé Purina sells more dry dog ​​food in the United States than any other company.

PEMBROKE, Mass./DONGGUAN, China, December 15 (Reuters) – Fraser Townley sees two gaping holes in one side of a pallet that one of his employees just pulled out of the orange Hapag-Lloyd shipping container that arrived here in his warehouse from China on a recent cold morning.

“Clearly a forklift,” he mumbles.

The damage could have occurred anywhere along his company’s 10,710-mile odyssey from China’s Guangdong province where it is manufactured to its warehouse 30 miles south of Boston, just one stop on the way to major retailers like Best Buy. Still, Townley, CEO of T2M, is grateful that his products are coming.

A global disruption in supply chains in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, which resulted in a sharp contraction and then a surge in demand that caught most businesses on the wrong foot, overwhelmed ports and left manufacturers, retailers, railroads and truckers scrambling to get goods to shelves, especially with the crucial holiday season approaching.

The number of idling container ships off Los Angeles – the nation’s busiest port complex – has reached record highs, as stacks of empty containers increasingly clutter the docks.

The situation is so dire that a White House task force is working to reduce the backlog, while shortages of imported goods are accused of helping fuel an inflationary surge that has put the Federal Reserve together many edgy consumers.

The stacking casts a shadow over a globalized system that T2M and many other producers have relied on for products that are produced cheaply in distant factories. As companies developed these supply chains, they reduced the inventory they kept on hand to an absolute minimum. That’s great for the bottom line, but it’s a disaster when the supply lines get clogged like they are now.

T2M’s mobile game controllers, including the only full-size device designed to work with a hard wire on an Apple iPhone, are sold by Best Buy and other big chains such as Walmart and Target, and on Amazon.

Townley does not own a factory. Instead, like countless other consumer product companies, it designs the devices and has them made by a Chinese factory. It has a China-based employee, Breeze Feng, the company’s senior structural engineer, who oversees production at the Dongguan plant until the goods are packed into containers to be trucked to Hong Kong. for shipment to the west coast of the United States.

Feng said the crisis reached a boiling point in June, as they made efforts to get the goods to the United States in time for the year-end vacation. “We went to retrieve containers three times but we failed,” she said, explaining that they had reserved slots on the ships. “They didn’t have a container to load our goods, so there’s no way” they could ship.

Speaking in the Chinese factory – where rows of workers in blue coats and white caps leaned over workbenches to assemble and test controllers for T2M – Feng said he felt conditions were easing a little in October.

“But now, after the new strain (Omicron) appears, we’re actually still worried about whether it will return to the situation as before,” she said.

NOTHING IS NORMAL

T2M has limited ability to move to other Chinese factories in this crisis. Feng noted that only a handful of factories are capable of producing controllers that meet the Apple certification required by customers. “If we had to replace our factory it wouldn’t have been quick,” she said, so they didn’t even try to find alternatives.

However, they had to find new routes to get the containers to their warehouse in Boston. T2M receives one or two containers per month, each holding up to 40,000 controllers, and Townley is closely monitoring their progress.

In the past, it shipped them to Boston via the Panama Canal, a more direct and cheaper route that had become more difficult to access as port traffic boomed.

Now, its normal procedure is to ship cargo to Los Angeles, where its containers are placed on a train to Newark, New Jersey, which is their official port of entry for US Customs. From there, a truck brings its boxes to its warehouse outside Boston. Warehouse workers then separate the items and ship them to distribution centers for large retailers on trucks.

But nothing has been normal in recent months.

In September, he had a shipment of controllers he was trying to get to a Kentucky distribution center for a large retailer that had ordered a specific design and set a launch date for a promotion.

Controllers were on their way to Los Angeles when they got stranded while waiting to be offloaded from a ship for what turned out to be three more weeks. After the container was released, he attempted to ship it directly to Kentucky in order to meet the deadline rather than sending it across the country first to Newark and then to his warehouse, as originally planned.

“Unfortunately, everyone except customs could be flexible,” Townley said. His solution was to send more controllers by plane directly from China to Tennessee, via Chicago.

Costs have skyrocketed as a result. Townley now pays around $ 18,000 to ship a container from China to his warehouse, up from $ 3,500 at the same time last year. “And last year I was complaining because we bought them for $ 2,800. “

The problems don’t end once the controllers arrive at his warehouse. Finding truckers to transport the goods to end customers became such a challenge that Townley explored buying his own truck. He decided not to do it.

As a small business, he has no influence on his customers to pass these expenses on. Instead, he rushed to cut costs. He takes one of his levers and points to the brightly colored buttons. Skipping the color – the buttons are now just black – he shaved 50 cents off that coin, he notes. It also slightly reduced the size of each box and eliminated a plastic cradle that held the controller inside.

Townley is well positioned to play these games. He came from Britain to the United States decades ago to help Circuit City source from China. So he spent most of his working life thinking about how goods move from one place to another.

While no one anticipated the current downturn, there are certain techniques that help keep products and profits afloat. Take the perforated pallet. A task assigned to T2M’s factory monitor, Feng, is to photograph each pallet before it is loaded into a container in China. This allowed them to quickly determine that the pallet was not damaged before it was loaded.

In this case, the container was removed for a one-time customs inspection in New Jersey, so Townley is satisfied that the damage occurred there.

“On this occasion, the damage was limited to two cases. So we are in the $ 1,000 range, but not in the tens of thousands ”for the loss, he noted.
