College Professors Made Models Showing How Bad COVID-19 Would Be on Campus. Some Administrators Ignored Them

Image
Who thought it would be a good idea to move thousands of teenagers and young adults across the country to college campuses, where, unencumbered by parental supervision, many college kids did what college kids do?Actually, Nigel Goldenfeld and Sergei Maslov, two University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign physics researchers, thought they had it figured out. They created a predictive model for the campus, which showed that with a robust, twice-a-week testing program for students, faculty and staff who are regularly on campus, a mask mandate and an app for contact tracing, COVID-19 cases could be kept below 500 people for the whole semester on a campus that includes about 46,000 people. They even accounted for close interactions among college students.
But that model failed to take into account that kids who test positive for the virus, whether sick or asymptomatic, might continue to party. From Aug. 16, when campus reopened, to Sept. 13, more than 1,800 new cases of COVID-19 were detecte…

75 Retailers Selling (and Donating) Face Masks During the Coronavirus Pandemic

Image
The Centers For Disease Control (CDC) has advised Americans to wear cloth face masks while out in public to help minimize the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). These precautions were put in place to prevent the spread of the virus by those who are infected with it and are asymptomatic. The CDC advised wearing a cloth face covering when you're out in public places, like grocery stores and pharmacies, where the social-distancing guidelines are harder to follow. For many before the pandemic, face masks were not a part of their at-home collection. Luckily, a selection of retailers have now made protective face coverings available for purchase. For those who do not have masks already or prefer not to make a DIY face mask, buying one is an easy alternative.In order to properly wear a face mask, it must fit closely against the face, be secured with ties or ear loops, include more than one layer of fabric, allow for breathing, and be able to be washed without getting damaged. It's…

I Have PCOS, and We Don't Talk Enough About the Emotional Toll It Takes

Image
High school is challenging for just about everyone, but my worries went beyond typical stresses like braces and breakouts. When I was about 15 years old, I began to develop severe acne on my face and back. Then one day while I was swimming with friends, one of them pointed out the "beard" on my chin. Later on, I noticed that my sideburns seemed to be growing thicker.My father had suffered from acne in his teens, so he was always looking for treatments that would help clear my face once and for all. As for my mom, she bleached my body hair, which remains one of my biggest insecurities, though at the time I figured I was just a hairy girl. But as I got older, I noticed that it was also difficult for me to lose weight. One time I came across a condition called polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), a hormonal disorder that causes enlarged ovaries and small cysts. I wasn't sure if I had it, but I definitely had most of the symptoms: acne, hair in places it typically wouldn'…

The COVID-19 Pandemic Has Erased Decades of Progress on Childhood Vaccination

While the world waits for a COVID-19 vaccine, children across the globe are going without shots already known to be life-saving.With the world in disarray due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the number of children vaccinated this year against infections like diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, measles and pneumococcal disease has fallen to levels not seen since the 1990s, according to a new report from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.“In other words,” the report reads, “we’ve been set back about 25 years in about 25 weeks.”That stark figure comes from the Gates Foundation’s annual Goalkeepers report, which evaluates global progress on the United Nations’ sustainable development goals, a set of global health, equity and sustainability benchmarks the group hopes to hit by 2030.
Progress on nearly all of the goals has stalled or reversed this year as the world struggles to contain the pandemic. Rates of poverty, malnutrition and childhood mortality are going up for the first time in years. A …
