U.S. Deaths in 2020 Top Three Million
By MIKE STOBBE AP Medical Writer NEW YORK (AP) — This is the deadliest year in U.S. history, with deaths expected to top 3 million for the first time — due mainly to the coronavirus pandemic. Final mortality data for this year will not be available for months. But preliminary numbers suggest that the United States is on track to see more than 3.2 million deaths this year, or at least 400,000 more than in 2019. U.S. deaths increase most years, so some annual rise in fatalities is expected. But the 2020 numbers amount to a jump of about 15%, and could go higher once all the deaths from this month are cou...

The Impact of COVID-19 on Child Marriage and Other Gender-Based Violence
By Saeda Bilkis BaniDHAKA, Bangladesh, Dec 21 2020 (IPS) I recently visited rural areas of Bangladesh amid the COVID-19 pandemic and returned to Dhaka with a new understanding of the impact that COVID-19 is having on child marriage, a harmful practice that is a global challenge. The fundamental shift that I saw was that child marriage, which has typically been encouraged by struggling parents, is now being encouraged by struggling girls. This worrisome trend underscores a new burden of the pandemic on the poor. Marriage before the age of 18 is a fundamental violation of human rights. Yet UNICEF reported in April that the ...
