Bradley Walsh in tears on ‘This Morning’ over impact of care home visit rules on families

Watch: Bradley Walsh tears up over mother not being able to visit her son at care home

Bradley Walsh was overcome with emotion on Thursday’s This Morning as he discussed “upsetting” care home visitation rules.

The case in particular that reduced The Chase presenter to tears was that of Ruth who revealed in a video on the daytime show that she had not been able to visit her son Sam, who is in the later stages of Huntington’s disease, for six months.

Along with MP Liz Kendall, Walsh is backing calls for the government to change their stance on care home visit rules as many still remain closed to visitors. Ruth had reached out to Walsh on Instagram to share her story, prompting him to get on board with campaigning.

Why Covid-19’s Impact on Health Is a Long-Term Worry

1. What are the persistent ailments?

Surveys and preliminary research indicate the most commonly reported include fatigue, breathlessness, headache, insomnia, chest pain, joint pain, coughing, loss of taste and smell, intermittent fevers and skin rashes. Less frequently, hearing problems, “brain fog,” mental-health problems and hair loss have been reported, though these have yet to be confirmed by studies. Besides these general symptoms, specific organ dysfunction has been reported, involving primarily the heart, lungs, and brain — even among those whose acute infection led to no discernible symptoms. But the science is still evolving and there’s no consensus yet on a clinical definition for long, or post-acute, Covid.

It probably increases with the severity of the initial bout of Covid-19. For instance, two-thirds of patients who had mild-to-moderate Covid-19 reported at least one persistent symptom 60 days after falling ill, according to a French study that followed 150 non-critical patients from

Cities Declare Racism a Health Crisis, but Some Doubt Impact | Wisconsin News

By SOPHIA TAREEN, Associated Press

CHICAGO (AP) — Christy DeGallerie noticed a startling trend in her online group for coronavirus survivors: White patients got medications she’d never heard of, were offered X-rays and their doctors listened to their concerns.

That wasn’t her experience. When the 29-year-old Black woman sought a COVID-19 test at a New York emergency room, a nurse said she didn’t have a fever. DeGallerie appealed to a doctor of color, who told the nurse to check again. It registered 101 degrees.

“We know our pain is questioned and our pain is not real to them,” said DeGallerie, who later started a group for Black COVID-19 survivors. “Getting medical help shouldn’t be discouraging for anyone. It is a discouraging place for Black people.”

Addressing experiences like DeGallerie’s has become a priority for a growing number of local governments, many responding to a pandemic that’s amplified racial disparities and

Impact of wildfires affecting residents’ mental health

Paulie Hawthorne is used to fire. She grew up in southeastern Oregon, long a hotbed for wildfires.

“I can remember, even as a kid, there were fires. I mean, it was just kind of a thing that happened,” Hawthorne, 47, said. Hawthorne and her husband had to evacuate in 2017 from their old home in Brookings, Oregon, during the 2017 Chetco Bar wildfire, which burned through more than 190,000 acres, including about 80,000 acres in the Kalmiopsis Wilderness. Today she lives in Klamath Falls, Oregon, a small city about 280 miles south of Portland that has seen frequent, low-intensity fires over the years. While her current exposure has been mild, when she smells smoke in the air or simply sees ashy skies, it pulls her back.

“The hardest part about evacuating is you just think it’s gonna be like a couple days, and we were out for almost a month,”

How Chrissy Teigen’s openness can impact public perceptions of pregnancy loss

Chrissy Teigen’s recent announcement that she’d suffered a second-trimester pregnancy loss shocked her fans, not just because the news was devastating but because of the heartbreaking photographs and caption she shared to social media.

The model, who was expecting her third child with singer John Legend, had been giving her 32 million Instagram followers regular updates about her complicated pregnancy, including details of her recent hospitalization and needing two blood transfusions.

And then, on Wednesday night, she posted four black-and-white images that laid bare the pain of her loss and the physically taxing process of childbirth, along with a note to the “little guy” she and Legend named Jack.

“To our Jack – I’m so sorry that the first few moments of your life were met with so many complications, that we couldn’t give you the home you needed to survive,” she wrote. “We will always love you.”

Do Metabolic Changes Impact Cognition Post-Menopause?

Forgetfulness and cognitive decline after menopause might be explained by changes in the metabolic cycle, a researcher reported.

In both peri- and postmenopausal women, markers of efficient mitochondrial function — including higher baseline respiratory rate and maximal respiratory rate — were associated with better performance on verbal learning and memory tests, according to Rachel Schroeder, BS, of the University of Illinois in Chicago.

But some methods of energy production considered inefficient, such as non-mitochondrial oxygen consumption and basal glycolytic rate, were also associated with good cognitive function, Schroeder reported at the North American Menopause Society 2020 virtual meeting.

Schroeder and colleagues also found that higher mitochondrial function in peri- and postmenopausal women was consistently associated with dependence on executive, prefrontal cognitive strategies.

Schroeder told MedPage Today that this research provides further evidence that declining estrogen levels may affect the ability of mitochondria to perform efficient forms of energy production. But

Ministers must be honest with the public that patients face “several years” of waiting longer than usual for treatment because Covid-19 has disrupted so many services, NHS leaders have warned.

The health service is facing a “triple whammy” of pandemic pressures involving the recent rise in numbers of people being treated in hospital, a large backlog of patients not treated in the spring and the ongoing drive to restore normal care.

NHS England has told hospital trusts to provide close to full levels of services for people with non-Covid illnesses by October, such as cancer patients and those needing surgery. But the NHS Confederation, which represents health trusts in England, makes clear in a report published on Tuesday that this target is not realistic.

“In recent months the NHS has made huge progress in restoring services towards previous levels. However, the pandemic’s
