    Donald Trump unveils his 'America First' healthcare plan

    Donald Trump announced his long-awaited health care plan on Thursday as he seeks to fulfill a campaign promise before the presidential election. The US president vowed to protect people with pre-existing medical conditions, a key part of the Obama-era healthcare legislation which his administration is attempting to strike down, as well as calling for an end to surprise medical billing. Mr Trump unveiled his healthcare "vision" during a speech in Charlotte, North Carolina, a key swing state in this year's race, saying his "America First healthcare plan" would deliver quality health care at a "much lower cost" to the public. Mr Trump has repeatedly attacked the Affordable Care Act, the signature healthcare policy signed into law by President Barack Obama, and promised to repeal and replace it with an alternative healthcare plan during his first term.

    New coronavirus mutation could be evolving to get around mask-wearing and hand-washing

    Covid-19 may have become more contagious as it has mutated, the largest genetic study carried out in the US into the virus has suggested, as scientists warn it could be adapting to interventions such as mask-wearing and social distancing. One variant of the novel coronavirus is now one of the most dominant in America, accounting for 99.9 per cent of cases in one area studied. The paper concluded that a mutation that changes the structure of the “spike protein” on the surface of the virus may be driving the outsized spread of that particular strain. Researchers have been sequencing the genomes of the coronavirus at Houston Methodist, one of the largest hospitals in Texas, since early March, when the virus first appeared in the city. To date, they have documented 5,085 sequences. In the first wave of the outbreak in Houston around March, some 71 per cent of the viruses were characterised by the mutation, which originated in China and is known as D614G. By the second wave, which began in May and is ongoing, the D614G mutation leaped to 99.9 per cent prevalence. A tiny tweak in the spike protein of the dominant variant switches an amino acid from aspartic acid to glycine. The new mutation appears to be outdistancing all of its competitors.
