(CNN) — The US inched closer to 5 million cases of COVID-19 on Saturday as experts warned the country is still not doing enough to contain the spread of the coronavirus. “We need to take ownership of this and implement a federal plan by which we bring every state to containment by October,” said Dr. Peter Hotez, a professor and Dean of Tropical Medicine at the Baylor College of Medicine, adding that some states have been able to do that already. “But other parts of the country have a lot of work...

Dear readers.  Several weeks ago, I gave some suggestions to a gentleman whose wife recently died. He was lonely and had little contact with people. JP, a psychotherapist acknowledged the merit of my answers but suggested I missed the most obvious answer which she regards as the “best, simplest, easiest, most comprehensive and satisfying.” You guessed it: Get a pet, a dog or cat. If physically fit enough, she suggested a dog would work; a cat also would be a good choice. Many would agree...

Coronavirus 101: What is the difference between ‘isolation’ and ‘quarantine’?

Amid the nonstop flow of coronavirus information, it’s easy to get lost. You’ve likely heard the words “quarantine” and “isolation.” Do know the difference? The difference in the terms gained traction recently, after the Centers for Disease Control had learned enough new information about the virus to change its guidelines on how long a person must isolate once they’ve been diagnosed. That guidance says: For people who never develop symptoms, isolation can end 10 days after the date of their fi...
