‘The Ripple Effect Is a Major Concern.’ Chicagoans Worry Lollapalooza May Become a COVID-19 Hotspot
When music fan Noah Zelinsky bought tickets to the Chicago music festival Lollapalooza in May, he thought it might signal something of a return to normalcy after more than a year of isolation. “There’s so much pent up excitement, being the first major thing back,” he says. But a lot can change in two months. “Now, there’s a lot of fear countering that.” As Lollapalooza arrives, along with its potentially hundreds of thousands of attendees, in Grant Park, worrying signs abound: the highly contagious Delta variant of the coronavirus has spread across the U.S., with Chicago’s COVID-1...

Tokyo ’s Plan to Avoid Pandemic Disaster During the Olympics
The Olympics and COVID-19 were never going to be compatible. The cardinal rule when it comes to controlling an infectious disease is to limit the contact people have with one another. Yet the very essence of the two weeks of competition, which begin on July 23 in Tokyo, is to invite the world to meet, greet and engage in friendly—and often socially not so distant—contests. An estimated 70,000 athletes, coaches, staff, officials and media will be descending on Tokyo from July to August for the Olympic and Paralympic Games—at a time when infections in the city are rising again. On July 8, the government d...

COVID-19 Cases Are Rising in Europe, and the Vaccine Rollout Is Lagging. How Did It All Go So Badly Wrong?
Europe was one of the first regions to be hit hard by COVID-19 last spring. In mid-May 2020, the World Health Organization declared it the “epicenter” of the pandemic, with more reported cases and deaths than the rest of the world combined. From there, in many ways, the European experience of COVID-19 mirrored the U.S. and its neighbor the U.K., two of the other worst-hit parts of the globe: In the summer, many bars, restaurants and clubs reopened their doors, and international visitors were welcomed back. Then cases began to surge again in the autumn and winter, in large part thanks to the holidays, and lockdo...

Celtics Mock Draft Roundup With One Week To Go
BOSTON (CBS) — The NBA Draft is only a week away. And the Boston Celtics still have three first-round picks. Danny Ainge is really hoping that changes soon. This isn’t a particularly talented draft, and the Celtics don’t have room on the roster for three rookies. They barely have room for one. Ainge will be furiously working the phones over the next seven days in hopes of consolidating his three selections (Nos. 14, 26 and 30). Maybe he’ll get lucky and be able to move up into the Top 10. Perhaps he’ll snag a player he wants at No. 14 and then cash in Boston’s later two picks for future ...
