We might finally know how deadly the coronavirus is compared to the flu

We might finally know how deadly the coronavirus is compared to the flu

The novel coronavirus seemed like it might be a variation of the flu in the early days of the Wuhan epidemic. The more the virus spread and the more we learned about the pathogen, it became more apparent that COVID-19 isn’t anything like the flu. Not only does it spread a lot easier and faster, but it can cause a variety of serious complications that don’t appear in influenza cases. The new virus also kills a lot more people than the regular flu, even though some politicians claimed the two infectious diseases had similar mortality rates. Seven months later, the coronavirus has killed...

Coronavirus attacks the entire body, not just the lungs

Coronavirus attacks the entire body, not just the lungs

The world has been battling the novel coronavirus for more than seven months, and we’ve had plenty of time to learn that COVID-19 is nothing like the flu, even though some people still dismiss it as such. It’s highly infectious, and its mortality rate is higher than influenza. It can’t be treated as effectively as the flu, and the drugs we take to treat flu symptoms aren’t enough to treat COVID-19. The complications are also far worse than the flu, and many people who have survived the infections will need months to truly recover. That’s because the virus doesn’t just hurt the lungs and...

“Barr’s Guiding Principle Was to Protect Trump”: With Barr Out, New York Prosecutors Are Freer to Zero In On the President

“Barr’s Guiding Principle Was to Protect Trump”: With Barr Out, New York Prosecutors Are Freer to Zero In On the President

Bill Barr will not be missed by most of the hundreds of nonpartisan career prosecutors inside the Department of Justice. Least of all, though, by the lawyers working for the Southern District of New York, whose jurisdiction covers most of Donald Trump’s hometown—and whose continuing probes of the president’s associates, including an investigation of Rudy Giuliani, are far less likely to be squashed. “Everything depends on the facts and witnesses in those cases,” a former senior SDNY official says. “But certainly they are more likely to proceed without Barr in there, who was just a disgrace....

“You’re in a Different Universe With Donald Trump”: Can Joe Biden Steer Debate Night Back to Reality?

“You’re in a Different Universe With Donald Trump”: Can Joe Biden Steer Debate Night Back to Reality?

Chris Van Hollen tried to make Joe Biden mad. Didn’t work. Van Hollen tried to confuse Biden. No luck. Then again, this was 2012, when Biden was the incumbent vice president, and Van Hollen was playing the part of Republican veep nominee Paul Ryan in mock debates. Whatever you may think of Ryan’s politics, the congressman was at least a coherent thinker and speaker. “What I was trying to do was to throw a lot of stuff at Biden that might come his way,” Van Hollen, who is now a U.S. senator from Maryland, tells me. “So you come up with the most outrageous things that Paul Ryan might say, and...

“We’re Not Going to Let Donald Trump Steal This Election”: Democrats Are Strategizing for All-Out 2020 Warfare

“We’re Not Going to Let Donald Trump Steal This Election”: Democrats Are Strategizing for All-Out 2020 Warfare

Donald Trump, true to form, is stoking chaos, trying to undermine faith in the accuracy of November’s election. He has floated  at the 2020 polls and maintained a steady stream of lies about “rigged” mail-in ballots. Joe Biden’s counteroffensive is shaping up to be equally in character: It relies on his trust in rational process and in projecting calm. It’s a strategy that makes a great deal of sense—and also feels quaint considering Trump’s evil genius for asymmetrical warfare.Biden has solicited the help of two former solicitors general, one former attorney general, and a small army of...

“Noise Favors Trump”: How the Biden Camp Plans to Leverage the SCOTUS Fight

“Noise Favors Trump”: How the Biden Camp Plans to Leverage the SCOTUS Fight

It was early Friday afternoon, and we were talking about possible surprises that could disrupt the 2020 presidential race. Philippe Reines, a longtime top aide to Hillary Clinton, mentioned the Durham investigation, Attorney General William Barr’s ongoing probe into the origins of the FBI’s 2016 attempt to divine whether Russia was trying to help get Donald Trump elected. “If Durham’s report turns out to be about John Brennan and Jim Clapper and Andrew McCabe—sure, fine, that’s not going to transform the race,” Reines told me. “But it’s noise. And noise favors Trump. If he can’t come up...

“When We Say Things Were Worse Than We Thought, That’s What We Mean”: Inside Biden’s Plan to Push Through COVID Vaccine Chaos

“When We Say Things Were Worse Than We Thought, That’s What We Mean”: Inside Biden’s Plan to Push Through COVID Vaccine Chaos

Maybe my question was confusing. Or maybe California’s COVID response is such a mess, and the troubles the state is confronting are so numerous, that the senior Biden administration official didn’t know where to start his answer. “I’m not sure whether you’re asking about the vaccination program progress or about the public health issues about the new variant, so I don’t want to answer something that’s not being asked,” he replied tentatively. “I saw what you saw, which was the comments from the California health department that they were revamping the program to get more vaccinations out...
