    Global fight against Covid hitting a snag
    ACCRA, Ghana — Global health advocates, including WHO officials, are concerned that the U.S. and European countries are beginning to ease pandemic guidance and funding — affecting the world’s response against Covid-19. Many Western governments are relaxing public health guidelines such as mask mandates and dropping Covid-19 financing from budgets. But here in Ghana and elsewhere in Africa, officials are still trying to ramp up primary vaccinations. The differing strategies muddle the direction of the global health community’s fight and…

    Community Health Development, a Texas clinic, announced it is cutting back Covid-19 care for uninsured patients after federal pandemic funding for testing, treatment and vaccines ran out in recent weeks. The health center in Uvalde, about 60 miles from the Mexican border, serves a population that is majority Hispanic and uninsured. It now offers free Covid-19 vaccines one day a week instead of six. It has restricted testing and may have to eliminate services, increase patient fees or even lay…

    Moderna asks FDA to authorize Covid-19 vaccine for young kids
    Moderna on Thursday formally asked the Food and Drug Administration to authorize its Covid-19 vaccine for children under the age of 6. The request, which POLITICO first reported late Wednesday, comes a month after the drug company signaled its two-dose regimen generated immune protection in the youngest children comparable to young adults, and amid growing impatience from lawmakers and parents for the administration to green-light a vaccine for the nation’s youngest children. Moderna still needs to complete its emergency use…

    Oklahoma House sends Texas-style abortion ban to governor
    OKLAHOMA CITY — The Oklahoma House gave final approval on Thursday to a Texas-style abortion ban that prohibits the procedure after about six weeks of pregnancy, before many women know they are pregnant. The bill approved by the GOP-led House on a 68-12 vote without discussion or debate now heads to Republican Gov. Kevin Stitt, who is expected to sign it within days. The assault on abortion rights is one of several culture-war issues conservatives in GOP-led states have embraced,…

    Concerns about over-policing threaten to stall a ban on menthol cigarettes and undermine a major tobacco regulation a decade in the making. On Thursday, the Food and Drug Administration released two proposed rules that would prohibit the sale of flavored cigars and menthol cigarettes, which make up roughly a third of all cigarette sales, and are predominantly used by Black smokers. While the FDA insists that this rule would save thousands of lives and curb rates of chronic disease, it…

    Deborah Birx, the former White House coronavirus response coordinator, said she felt “paralyzed” when then-President Donald Trump infamously suggested injecting disinfectants as a Covid-19 treatment during a White House press conference in April 2020. Birx, in interviews with ABC News and “Good Morning America” ahead of the release of her new book, also called the moment a “tragedy on many levels.” While pushing back against Trump’s disinfectant remarks would have been the “logical and important thing to do,” Birx said…

    Most of Beijing to be tested for Covid amid lockdown fears
    BEIJING — Beijing will conduct mass testing of most of its 21 million people, authorities announced Monday, as a new Covid-19 outbreak sparked stockpiling of food by residents worried about the possibility of a Shanghai-style lockdown. The Chinese capital began mass testing people in one of its 16 districts where most of the new cases have been found. The city also imposed lockdowns on individual residential buildings and one section of the city. Late in the day, health officials said…

    DOJ to appeal travel mask mandate ruling after CDC says masks still needed on public transportation
    The Department of Justice is appealing a court ruling to reinstate the Biden administration’s mask mandate on planes, trains and other public transportation, after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said the facial coverings were still necessary for indoor travel. The CDC asked the DOJ on Wednesday to appeal the ruling in order to protect Americans’ health as well as the CDC’s authority. The decision follows two fraught days of debate in the White House, as officials weighed the…

    The Biden administration late Tuesday said it will appeal a federal judge’s decision striking down a mask mandate for public transportation if the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention deem the mandate necessary for public health. The Justice Department’s announcement comes after hours of deliberation, with some Biden administration officials insisting that an appeal is essential to preserve the government’s public health authorities while others argued a fight would have relatively little political benefit or practical effect for the broader…

A spokesperson for the Department of Health and Human Services confirmed that the policy change is underway, saying: “HHS has made clear through the unified regulatory agenda that we are in the rulemaking process.” The move, which HHS could propose as soon as the end…

    Kids aren’t getting caught up on routine shots they missed during the pandemic, and many vaccination proponents are pointing to Covid-19 vaccine hesitancy as a big reason why. Public health experts, pediatricians, school nurses, immunization advocates and state officials in 10 states told POLITICO they are worried that an increasing number of families are projecting their attitudes toward the Covid-19 vaccine onto shots for measles, chickenpox, meningitis and other diseases. That spillover of vaccine hesitancy may also be fueling an…

    Biden Covid chief dismisses utility of lockdowns like China’s
    White House Covid czar Ashish Jha said Sunday that onerous lockdown policies like those being instituted in China are unlikely to work and should not be a model for places like the U.S. “We don’t think that this zero-Covid strategy that China is pursuing is one that is likely to work,” said Jha, whom Biden tapped last month to succeed Jeff Zients, on “Fox News Sunday.” “I think it’s very difficult at this point with a highly contagious variant to…

    PHILADELPHIA — Several businesses and residents have filed suit in state court in Pennsylvania seeking to overturn Philadelphia’s renewed indoor mask mandate scheduled to be enforced beginning Monday in an effort to halt a surge in Covid-19 infections. The lawsuit, filed in Commonwealth Court on Saturday, said Philadelphia lacks the authority to impose such a mandate. Philadelphia earlier this week became the first major U.S. city to reinstate its indoor mask mandate after reporting a sharp increase in coronavirus infections,…

    ‘Sense of urgency’ for HHS climate change office
    When a record-breaking heat wave hit Seattle last summer, it felt like the first few days of the pandemic all over again. Hospitals scrambled to secure ventilators for people whose lungs and hearts had stopped due to rising body temperatures. One emergency room physician texted another: “We are in crisis.” That emergency — a three-day heat wave that saw hundreds of deaths in the Pacific Northwest as temperatures climbed to record highs — is one in a series of increasingly…
