Why Are COVID Cases Still Rising In The World’s Most Vaccinated Country?

But despite Israel leading the world in terms of how many people are vaccinated against the virus, COVID-19 cases are still on the rise throughout the country.

As coronavirus cases surge, hospitals are beginning to be overwhelmed

As confirmed coronavirus cases rise to their highest levels since the pandemic began, hospitals across the country are reporting critical staff shortages.

89,000 new Covid-19 cases per day. And the worst may be yet to come.

The United States has reached a new terrible milestone in the Covid-19 pandemic. This past week, the country saw, on average, 75,561 new cases per day — the highest on record in a pandemic full of atrocious records. On Thursday, 89,000 Americans received a positive test result.

Why Covid-19 cases are surging in the UK

After a relatively quiet summer, the United Kingdom is now suffering a new onslaught of Covid-19. Where the seven-day rolling average for much of the summer was regularly below 1,000 cases a day, it began increasing in September, and by October 5, the new average had reached 15,505. The counts are complicated by test shortages…

As coronavirus cases increase worldwide, an Australian state is imposing tough new restrictions

As coronavirus cases creep back up in Australia — a country that has maintained a relatively low rate of Covid-19 fatalities — the state of Victoria, home to the city of Melbourne, has declared a state of disaster, enacting tough new restrictions that exceed precautions taken in many places seeing similar, if not worse, increases.…

Why did liberals win so many cases before a conservative Supreme Court?

Last October, when the Supreme Court began its term, liberals had good reason to be despondent. The Court’s most recent term, which ended Thursday, was the first full term since Justice Brett Kavanaugh, a staunch conservative, replaced his more moderate predecessor Justice Anthony Kennedy. It was also the first term where Kavanaugh helped select every…

Covid-19 cases are rising, but deaths are falling. What’s going on?

There is something confounding about the US’s new coronavirus spikes: Cases are rising, but the country is seeing its lowest death counts since the pandemic first exploded. The numbers are genuinely strange to the naked eye: On July 3, the US reported 56,567 new Covid-19 cases, a record high. On the same day, 589 new…

In news that should surprise no one, workers at the Tesla factory reportedly have the coronavirus. Two anonymous workers told the Washington Post that “several cases” of Covid-19 had been confirmed at both the company’s Fremont, California, production plant and nearby at its smaller seat-assembly factory. Musk very publicly defied local officials when reopening his…

Are coronavirus cases in the US actually going down? Here’s what we know.

While it’s always tempting to think of the coronavirus pandemic in terms of numbers endlessly piling up — especially as the United States passes the 100,000 death mark, an unfathomable toll that is likely still an undercount — it’s important to remember that the outbreak is also constantly changing and evolving. We should be updating…
Why arrests take so long in cases like Ahmaud Arbery’s and Breonna Taylor’s

Why arrests take so long in cases like Ahmaud Arbery’s and Breonna Taylor’s

When an unarmed black person in America is killed during an encounter with police — or, in the recent case of Ahmaud Arbery, former police — one of the many questions that often arises is why does it take so long for an arrest to happen, if one happens at all? Though the shooting death…
