The follow-ups are the basis for medical research: Data on the patients now fills 17 bankers' boxes, and scientific reports are on the way. Bergamo doctors say the disease clearly has full-body ramifications but leaves wildly differing marks from one patient to the next, and in some cases few marks at all. Among the first 750 patients screened, some 30% still have lung scarring and breathing trouble. The virus has left another 30% with problems linked to inflammation and clotting, such as heart abnormalities and artery blockages. A few are at risk of organ failure. … [Read more...] about Italy’s Bergamo is calling back coronavirus survivors. About half say they haven’t fully recovered.

Traditionally, caregivers organize when the people they care for are at risk—and at almost no other time. Perhaps this moment is different. I want an America where caregivers demand and can receive the basic dignity they offer without feeling like they are stealing it from someone else. To strike, health-care workers have to send a 10-day notice of warning so that emergency staffing can be arranged with an agency. Yet every nursing home worker who even mumbles about organizing gets grilled on how they could just walk out on their residents.

His mother was dead, and his father was in a coma. Despite the fact that the father had a business partner who owed him $500,000, and who had recently threatened him, and who had been in the house the night before, detectives felt that Tankleff was too cold and unemotional in the aftermath, and they concentrated on him as a suspect even after the business partner faked his own death and moved to California.

Invited to explain how that might be possible, he offered a confused conjecture about how he might have blacked out. Deskovic was another 17-year-old, but he struck police as overly emotional in his reaction to the rape and … [Read more...] about The Myth of the Central Park Five
