‘I don’t understand’ – Southgate responds to reports of Mourinho rift over Kane fitness

Gareth Southgate says he “does not understand” the fuss surrounding Harry Kane’s fitness as he insists that the striker is “fully fit” following a public exchange with Spurs boss Jose Mourinho.

Prior to the international break, Mourinho stated his hopes that Southgate would not overuse Kane, with the England boss saying that Mourinho should back that up by resting Kane ahead of the Euros next summer.

The 27-year-old striker has been dealing with muscle fatigue and was not involved in a friendly match against Wales last Thursday.

He then started on the bench against Belgium on Sunday before replacing Dominic Calvert-Lewin in the 66th minute.

Southgate has stated that Kane is due to start against Denmark despite Mourinho’s concerns, which the England boss doesn’t necessarily understand.

“I don’t really understand the story because he has been fully fit since the end of last week, just before the last game,” Southgate

Don’t Overdo the Halloween Candy, or Your Smile May Suffer | Health News

By Steven Reinberg, HealthDay Reporter

(HealthDay)

SUNDAY, Oct. 11, 2020 (HealthDay News) – – COVID-19 may change the look of Halloween this year, but dressing up and indulging in some sweets is all part of the fun, even if your kids can’t go door to door.

And experts say one night of eating candy won’t have a big effect on your teeth if it’s done in moderation.

“It is all about having self-control or parental control,” said Dr. Gregory Olson, chair of pediatric dentistry at the University of Texas Health School of Dentistry.

“Having a piece of candy here and there won’t do too much damage to a healthy mouth, but the type of candy you pick, how many you eat, how long it lasts, and how you care for your teeth afterward could make all the difference,” Olson said in a school news release.

What We Know – and Don’t Know – About Trump’s COVID-19 Illness | Top News

(Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump revealed early on Oct. 2 that he had tested positive for the coronavirus, but several questions about the course of his illness remain unknown. The following is some of what is known and what is still unclear about the president’s bout with COVID-19.

Who infected President Trump when?

These are both questions that have not been answered as the White House has repeatedly refused to say when the president last tested negative for the coronavirus – information essential to tracing the timeline of when and where he was likely infected.

Health experts say the timing of his positive test results suggest he likely contracted the illness in late September. On Sept. 26, Trump hosted a ceremony in the White House Rose Garden to announce his Supreme Court nominee, Amy Coney Barrett. The mostly outdoor event was attended by more than 100 people, most not

‘I Don’t Want To Live This Way’

NORTH FORK, NY — It has been months since a North Fork woman — who asked not to be named for fear of the stigma and future potential impacts on her health benefits— was diagnosed with the coronavirus. But today, her life is a nightmarish version of what it once was, so drastically altered from the existence she once knew that there are moments she feels she cannot go on.

She’s what’s known as a “long-hauler” and her story echoes the words of many who are living in the shadows, struggling to get by as the specter of the coronavirus lingers.

On any given day, she puts bread in the toaster and then turns away and forgets that she’s done it. Minutes later, smoke is billowing in the kitchen. She stops, mid-sentence, losing track completely what she’s said just seconds before. And her days are filled with a long lost

Don’t be part of the ‘twindemic.’ Get a flu shot

On Tuesday, I biked over to the local Kaiser clinic to get my flu shot. I get one every year, but never this early.

I usually wait until the autumn heat wanes and Southern California’s version of winter settles in, pushing people and gatherings inside where viruses spread more easily. This year, waiting for winter to get a flu shot seemed as risky as waiting for Nov. 3 to vote. I’ve had the flu. It’s not an experience I wish to repeat — especially if there’s a possibility of suffering from both the flu and COVID-19 at the same time.

And in 2020 it is a possibility. This year’s flu season is coinciding with what appears to be the start of the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic. Reported cases of COVID-19 in

Why Donald Trump’s Aides Don’t Stand Up to Him

Few would dare. Inside the White House, aides created a kind of alternative reality in which the threat is always receding, the boss always prevailing. In meetings with the president, “no one likes to tell him that some areas are catching fire” because of the virus, another senior administration official told me. “They only say, ‘Oh, we’re turning the corner.’ That goes on there all the time. There’s always a reluctance to talk about bad news. That permeates all the discussions.”

Olivia Troye attended every meeting of the White House’s coronavirus task force until her resignation in August. Signs posted in the West Wing urged people to wear masks, which sat in a basket near one of the entrances. Yet she felt conspicuous peer pressure to forgo them, which is likely how Trump wanted it. He practices a kind of mask avoidance, and his staff followed suit. Wearing a mask

Families who endured COVID-19 don’t agree with Donald Trump’s sugar-coated experience

“They had so many patients that it was all hands on deck,” Ackerman explained.

“And I think what truly would have made a difference is our government not downplaying this disease,” she added.

As Trump this week crows about his first-rate medical care — which included a rare experimental antibody treatment available to fewer than 10 people outside medical trials — and declares victory in the pandemic, many

Months Into the Pandemic, 16 States Don’t Mandate Mask Use. Why?

Editor’s note: Find the latest COVID-19 news and guidance in Medscape’s Coronavirus Resource Center.

Nils Hase, a retiree who lives in Tarpon Springs, Florida, is wearing a mask and loading his Home Depot haul into his car on a recent weekday afternoon. In the store, because Home Depot insists customers and staff across the country wear masks, most faces were covered. But out here in the parking lot, in a state with a serious infection rate but no mask mandate, plenty of those masks hang down around people’s chins.

“It bothers me. They are being defiant,” Hase said. “And most of the people I see that walk in without a mask are just looking for a fight. They are asking you to ‘Just ask me. Just give me a reason to yell at you.’ I just stay away from them and keep on with my own life.”

‘Don’t Be Afraid’ of COVID, Trump Says as He Returns to White House That Is Stalked by Illness | Top News

By Steve Holland and Alexandra Alper

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Donald Trump told Americans “to get out there” and not fear COVID-19 as he returned to the White House on Monday after a three-night hospital stay to be treated for the virus and removed his white surgical mask to pose for pictures.

Asked how he felt on arrival at the White House, where his staff has been hit by infections and his re-election campaign dogged by the pandemic, Trump said: “Real good,” according to a pool report by a journalist covering his return on behalf of other media.

Trump wore a mask as he left the helicopter that flew him back from a military hospital outside Washington and climbed the stairs of the White House South Portico, where he removed it and posed for pictures, waving, saluting and giving thumbs-up signs.

He then turned to walk into the White House,
