WHO: ‘No Evidence’ That COVID-19 Antibodies Protect From Potential Re-infection
(Bloomberg) — Catching COVID-19 once may not protect you from getting it again, according to the World Health Organization, a finding that could jeopardize efforts to allow people to return to work after recovering from the virus. “There is currently no evidence that people who have recovered from COVID-19 and have antibodies are protected from a second infection,” the United Nations agency said in an April 24 statement. The WHO guidance came after some governments suggested that people who have antibodies to the coronavirus could be issued an “immunity passport” or “risk-free certificat...

‘It’s a Bucket Brigade on a Five-Alarm Fire.’ Food Banks Struggle to Keep Up With Skyrocketing Demand

“Immunity Passports” in the Context of COVID-19
Source: World Health Organization (WHO). Published: 4/24/2020. Some governments have suggested that the detection of antibodies to the SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, could serve as the basis for an “immunity passport” or “risk-free certificate” that would enable individuals to travel or to return to work assuming that they are protected against re-infection. This two-page document discusses how at this point in the pandemic, there is not enough evidence about the effectiveness of antib ody-mediated immunity to guarantee the accuracy of an “immunity passport” or “risk-free certificate.” (PDF)

Will Low Oil Prices Help or Hurt the Fight Against Climate Change? That Depends on Us
There are countless ways the current coronavirus pandemic has reshaped efforts to tackle climate change and will continue to do so for years to come. One of the chief challenges and opportunities for politicians, policymakers and climate activists is the period of low oil prices that has come about as a result of COVID-19. For the first time in history, oil prices entered negative territory this week with the U.S. benchmark price for oil reaching negative $40 per barrel on April 20 as the global economy slowed, and oil producers ran out of places to store the glut of crude oil being drilled in the U.S. Even a historic agre...

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning-Based Medical Devices: A Products Liability Perspective
Conclusion Technological innovation outpaces the law, and artificial intelligence/machine learning is no different. Regardless of how legal doctrines evolve with the introduction of AI/ML-based products, until firm legal and regulatory guidelines progress, one thing is certain: There will be significant disagreement about how products liability law is applied. So, while these products present a new and lucrative market for manufacturers, the drive to supply an ever-increasing market demand must be balanced with a fulsome design, testing, and monitoring process.
