Evidence suggests COVID-19 was in US in late 2019

By Mike Stobbe | Associated Press NEW YORK — A new analysis of blood samples from 24,000 Americans taken early last year is the latest and largest study to suggest that the new coronavirus popped up in the U.S. in December 2019 — weeks before cases were first recognized by health officials. The analysis is not definitive, and some experts remain skeptical, but federal health officials are increasingly accepting a timeline in which small numbers of COVID-19 infections may have occurred in the U....

COVID-19 lockdowns brought fast global ozone reductions, say JPL scientists

PASADENA — As the coronavirus pandemic slowed global commerce to a crawl in early 2020, emissions of nitrogen oxides — which create ozone, a danger to human health and climate — decreased 15% globally, with local reductions as high as 50%, according to a study published Wednesday, led by scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. As a result of the lower NOx emissions, by June 2020, global ozone levels had dropped to a level that policymakers thought would take at least 15 years to reach by...
