FOREIGN visitors entering the US will be denied entry unless they have been fully vaccinated as part of Joe Biden's plan to reopen international travel, according to reports. All travel restrictions will not be lifted as fears grow that a strain of Covid that's potentially more transmissible than the Delta variant could emerge. An official told Reuters : Biden is working with groups to “have a new system ready for when we can reopen travel”. The plan will require tourists visiting the US to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19. Officials are said to be developing a policy and it will be implemented “when the time is right”. Industry leaders think that it could be weeks if not months before restrictions are lifted. The US currently bans most non-US citizens who have been in the UK, the 26 Schengen nations in Europe, Ireland, China, India, South Africa, Iran, and Brazil.

A NEW mum was shocked when she discovered she could 'breastfeed from her armpit' after a white liquid started to seep out. The 26-year-old woman had started to feel a pain in her right armpit just two days after giving birth. Doctors examined the patient and found a round, firm lymph node that released white discharge when pressed. Writing in a case report in the New England Journal of Medicine , doctors in Lisbon, Portugal said the condition was consistent with polymastia. This is a condition where breast tissue develops along the ridge of the breast. Previous studies show that this is the most common place for women to develop accessory breast tissue. Other studies show that up to six per cent of women are born with 'accessory tissue'. During pregnancy a 'embryonic ridge' develops, and it is fully developed once the pregnancy is completed. Once the woman has given birth, milk can then drain from the tissue - this in turn can make it bigger, as seen with … [Read more...] about New mum discovers she can ‘breastfeed from her ARMPIT’ after noticing white liquid

A WOMAN claims her lips turned black and yellow after acne medication triggered a rare side effect as she battled Covid. She posted a video on TikTok saying her treatment can cause dry, flaky skin, which was then made worse by the virus. The woman, from the US, said it has a high dose of Vitamin A - isotretinoin - in it which closes up the skin's sebaceous glands. These glands have been linked to the development of severe acne if they get clogged. The TikToker, called Avery, revealed her black and swollen lips after getting Delta. She explained they were already dry and cracked from her medication, but when she caught the virus she developed yellow blisters and a thick crust on her lips. Doctors diagnosed her with impetigo, a skin infection due to Streptococcus bacteria but it got worse, with her lips turning black and weeping.

President Donald Trump wrote this week a letter to the World Health Organization (WHO) chief Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus criticizing the U.N. agency and his leadership during the coronavirus pandemic, specifically its work with China, where the outbreak first emerged. The letter laid out the Trump administration's case against the WHO for how it handled the pandemic and its soft stance on China, which is accused of covering up the emergence of a new coronavirus in the early days of the outbreak, allowing it to spread rapidly across the world. Trump has increased his criticism of the WHO in recent weeks as he came under attack for his own government's response to the coronavirus emergency. Now, he has suspended U.S. funding of the WHO "pending an investigation" by his administration of the agency's response to COVID-19, the disease caused by the new strain of coronavirus. To date, more than 4.9 million confirmed COVID-19 cases have been reported worldwide, according to a … [Read more...] about Donald Trump’s WHO letter about China explained: An annotated timeline
