Doctors say steroids, which have proven effective for those severely ill with COVID-19, may inadvertently fuel cases by dampening the immune system.
UK holidaymakers who have received two jabs will be able to use the NHS phone app as a so-called Covid vaccine passport from next week. Once the foreign travel ban is lifted on May 17, Downing Street said those going abroad could open the app upon arrival to prove they have had two doses. The app, developed by NHS Digital and NHS England, was originally designed to allow people to book appointments, repeat prescriptions and see their full medical records.
There are over 2 million more first doses that need to be administered before 80% of adults and adolescents in LA County will have at least one shot.
Demonstrations are also taking place outside the University of Oxford and the pharmaceutical firm’s Macclesfield site.
The claims accuse the technology giant of breaching UK competition law by abusing the dominant position of the App Store.
Researchers compared people who tested positive for the virus with those who received negative test results.

Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic is set to delay its latest flight to space yet again in a new setback to the billionaire’s plans to send tourists into space. The company said on Monday that it was “currently re-evaluating launch timing” for its next test flight after discovering a possible “wear and tear” issue on VMS Eve, the plane that carries its spacecraft into the air before it launches into space. It had previously said it would carry out its next test flight this month, before further test flights involving its staff and Sir Richard himself later in the year. It is unclear when the first commercial flights will take place. Around 600 prospective tourists have waited more than a decade, paying up to $250,000 (£177,000) per ticket, to travel into sub-orbital space on Galactic’s flights. Sir Richard founded Virgin Galactic in 2004, and the company started selling tickets in 2005, but the company has faced repeated delays and setbacks, most notably a fatal test flight in 2014.
A cyberattack on a critical U.S. pipeline is sending ripple effects across the economy, highlighting cybersecurity vulnerabilities in the nation's aging energy infrastructure. The Colonial Pipeline, which delivers about 45% of the fuel used along the Eastern Seaboard, shut down Friday after a ransomware attack by gang of criminal hackers that calls itself DarkSide. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE COLONIAL PIPELINE?
People seeking a "green burial" can choose to be laid to rest in artificial reefs, where their remains will become a habitat for sea creatures.
It even works with just about any Android phone or charging case that's Qi-compatible.
Home security camera footage shows that the owner of a Tesla got into the driver's seat of the car shortly before a deadly crash in suburban Houston, according to a government report Monday. The National Transportation Safety Board said it's still investigating all aspects of the crash. A computer that records air bag and seat belt status as well as speed and acceleration was damaged and is being examined at an NTSB lab.
Medical experts said getting too much vaccine usually doesn't lead to serious side effects - but it's important not to waste any doses.
The fate of coral reefs around the world remains grim should global warming continue at its current rate, according to new research. Coral reefs will stop growing in the next decade or so unless a significant reduction in greenhouse gases is achieved, a new study published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences suggests. A team of researchers led by Christopher Cornwall, a marine botanist at the Victoria University of Wellington in Australia, analyzed data from 183 reefs worldwide to estimate the effects of ocean warming and acidification, which are posing increasing threats to underwater ecosystems.
The latest data shows for the first time protection against mortality from the AstraZeneca jab and extra protection after two Pfizer doses.
SpaceX CEO Elon Musk announced his private space company was launching a lunar satellite mission dubbed "Doge-1" early next year that will be paid for entirely with the cryptocurrency dogecoin. The price of dogecoin, a digital currency which originally started as a joke, reacted tepidly on Monday to the Sunday evening announcement, rising by just a few percentage points.
Scientists believe B.1.617.2 is at least as transmissible as the variant originally detected in Kent last year
It took just two hours for cyber criminals to steal almost 100 gigabytes of data from one of the biggest energy pipelines in the US. On Friday, a shadowy criminal gang, known as Darkside, was able to use that data to lock the computers of the Colonial pipeline, halting the movement of nearly half of the US east coast’s fuel supply. Officials are still scrambling to fully restart operations at Colonial, which transports 2.5m barrels per day of gasoline and other fuels through 5,500 miles (8,850km) of pipelines linking refiners on the Gulf Coast to the eastern and southern US. Colonial Pipeline said on Monday it was only able to bring parts of its system back online, and added service will disrupted until the end of the week. “This is as close as you can get to the jugular of infrastructure in the United States," says Amy Myers Jaffe, managing director of the Climate Policy Lab. "It's not a major pipeline; it's the pipeline." Little is known about Darkside, the Eastern European collective that targets businesses using ransomware, a type of computer virus that involves hackers taking control of a computer system and blocking access to it until a ransom is paid. Evidence from past campaigns show it demanding between $200,000 (£141,000) and $4m to release files and computer systems, often attempting to dress up its criminals in a veneer of respectability. It sends out press releases and offers chat support to victims to help them pay up. It promises not to target hospitals, non-profits, schools or governments. It even claims to have made donations to charities from the profits of their hacks. DarkSide also offers to sell its malware to others in what is known as “ransomware-as-a-service,” according to the cybersecurity firm Cybereason. In a message posted on the dark web, where DarkSide maintains a site, the group suggested one of its customers was behind the attack. Attacks on national infrastructure on the rise In the latest incident, in which Colonial Pipeline was forced to shut down its system, emergency powers have been enacted by Joe Biden’s administration which allow fuel normally transported through pipes to be loaded into trucks for transportation. Gasoline prices have risen to their highest level since 2018 in a knock-on effect for consumers at the pump. “If this were a nation state attack it would be incredibly dangerous,” says Alan Woodward, a cyber security expert at the University of Surrey. “Physically trying to turn the lights off is a world away from espionage. This takes us away from the kind of ‘virtual’, victimless cyber attack into something that is very real.” Ransomware attacks on critical national infrastructure are on the rise. In February, for instance, hackers changed the level of sodium hydroxide in water after penetrating cybersecurity at a Florida treatment plant.
