UCLA finds link between poor air quality, COVID vulnerability

LOS ANGELES — Long-term exposure to poor air quality increased the risk of COVID-19 throughout the country last year, according to a UCLA-led research team. The researchers found that the use of preventative measures — like stay-at-home orders and masking — reduced the risk of COVID-19 by 8% and 15%, respectively, but did not reduce the increase of incidence in counties with historically poor air quality. “This is evidence that long-term exposure to poor air quality increased the risk of COVID-1...

‘Obamacare’ survives: Supreme Court dismisses big challenge

By MARK SHERMAN WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court dismissed a major challenge to the Obama era health care law on Thursday, turning aside an effort by Republican-led states to throw out the law that provides insurance coverage for millions of Americans.
