California seizes control over struggling vaccine delivery

first_imgLOS ANGELES (AP) — California is changing up the way it is delivering coronavirus vaccines and moving to a more centralized system that should streamline appointment sign-up, notification and eligibility for nearly 40 million residents. But few detais were released Tuesday, and counties, which have been leading the vaccine effort, say they need more information. A private third-party administrator will work with a new statewide secretary to decide where the state’s supply of vaccine should go. California has been criticized for vaccinating so few people even amid a national vaccine shortage that appears to be the main bottleneck. At the same time, residents are frustrated by eligibility rules that vary by county and by hospital system.last_img

South Korea to extend virus guidelines on prevention, sanitation

first_imgSouth Korea will extend its prevention and sanitation guidelines against the coronavirus until daily new infections drop to single digits, the health minister said on Friday, failing which he warned of a return to tough social distancing measures.The announcement came as such cases persist in the mid-double digits following a series of new clusters in the area around Seoul, the capital, with 56 new cases on Thursday taking the national tally to 12,003, and 277 deaths.Authorities will review whether to return to intensive social distancing if daily infections hover in that range, Health Minister Park Neung-hoo told a briefing. Topics : “These guidelines are aimed at cutting the series of infections centered in the Seoul area that could result in a return to social distancing,” he said.More than 96% of new infections were in the Seoul metropolitan area in the last two weeks, he added. Of Thursday’s new cases, 42 were from the Seoul area.South Korea has limited gatherings and recorded every visitor to eight high-risk facilities, such as nightclubs and bars, since May 29, Park said.Tough social distancing rules will be considered if 50 daily infections persist for more than two weeks, depending on the number of new outbreak clusters, Park added.last_img read more

A soft course Thursday allowed for significantly lower scores, meaning Justin Rose’s record-tying 65 only bought him a one-stroke lead through 18 holes. But others aren’t so lucky, with slow-starting stars like Justin Thomas and Tony Finau among those on the outside looking in. The favorable conditions likely will slide the cut line lower than usual. More than half of the 156-player field misses the cut at the 2019 U.S. Open.
