COVID-19 Has Killed Nearly 200,000 Americans. How Many More Lives Will Be Lost Before the U.S. Gets It Right?
Forty-five days before the announcement of the first suspected case of what would become known as COVID-19, the Global Health Security Index was published. The project—led by the Nuclear Threat Initiative and the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security—assessed 195 countries on their perceived ability to handle a major disease outbreak. The U.S. ranked first. It’s clear the report was wildly overconfident in the U.S., failing to account for social ills that had accumulated in the country over the past few years, rendering it unprepared for what was about to hit. At some point in mid-September—perha...

Featured Review: Induction of labour at or beyond 37 weeks ’ gestation
A normal pregnancy lasts about 40 weeks (the gestation period) from the start of the woman's last menstrual period. If a pregnancy lasts too long, a woman and her clinician may wish to stimulate the woman ’s body to begin labour. This is called induction.Babies may be at a greater risk of death, before or shortly after birth, after prolonged gestation. However, induction of labour may also have risks for mothers and their babies, especially if women are not ready to labour.Current tests cannot predict whether babies would be better to stay inside their mother or whether labour should be induced to make the birth happ...
