A 13-day-old baby has died after becoming infected with coronavirus, NHS officials have revealed.

The infant, who is not known to have had any underlying health conditions, passed away on Monday at Sheffield Children’s Hospital having been rushed there after becoming unconscious.

Hospital bosses said they have not yet established the cause of death, but they confirmed the child tested positive for Covid-19.

If confirmed as the primary cause of death, it would make the baby the youngest UK victim of the pandemic so far. Previously, the youngest victim with no pre-existing health problems was thought to be Ismail Mohamed Abdulwahab, who died in March aged just 13.

In May two children, aged three days and six weeks, died with Covid-19, but both were found to have suffered from underlying conditions. Child health experts have stressed continuously that cases of severe

What to expect from Apple’s online-only WWDC 2020

There’s at least one other sign that Apple is rethinking its old conventions. Mark Gurman at Bloomberg reported earlier this year that the company is considering letting people set third-party apps as the default for actions like writing emails and web-browsing, rather than Mail and Safari. The move would be great news for Apple’s power users, but make no mistake: If this happens, it would likely be because of the heightened antitrust scrutiny the company faces from US lawmakers and the European Union. (Just don’t expect Tim Cook to dwell on that too much that on-stage.) Curiously, the conversation around this move has died down since Bloomberg broke the news in February, so we’ll just have to see how things play out.

Beyond all that, Apple has been working on several updates to its slew of preloaded iOS apps. According to MacRumors, Apple is working on a “mention” system

DACA recipients in California rejoice at Supreme Court ruling, but anxiety remains

For years, Denea Joseph knew that her life as a Black woman without legal status in the U.S. was precarious. Born in Belize, the 26-year-old left her home on a visa when she was 7 years old to join her grandmother in South Los Angeles.

When her visa expired, she remained in the U.S. without legal status because she had no real pathway to legal residency. Even after she was granted immigration relief under a 2012 Obama-era policy that allowed her to live and work legally in the United States, Joseph felt the weight of uncertainty.

“I knew an executive order could be changed any day, at any moment,” said Joseph, one of an estimated 700,000 immigrants who are recipients of the Deferred Action for

The coronavirus pandemic has driven much of daily life – work, school, socializing – online. Unfortunately, perpetrators of violence against women and girls are also increasingly turning to technology in response to the pandemic.

Globally, violence against women and girls is a problem of pandemic proportions, with one in three experiencing an act of physical or sexual violence in her lifetime. Most of these acts of violence are perpetrated by intimate partners and family. In the United States, women are at increased risk of violence from a current or former intimate partner, and they are more likely than men to suffer injuries, be treated in emergency rooms and be killed as a result of intimate partner violence.

Violence against women and girls is costly for victims and their families, communities and society. The problem is

‘Old Is Way, Way Better Than Liar’

Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden is in a stronger position with young voters than Hillary Clinton was at a similar point during the presidential race in 2016, according to a new survey that shows President Donald Trump remains massively unpopular with young people. 

The survey, conducted by the Democratic polling firm Global Strategy Group and paid for by the progressive group NextGen America, found Biden attracting the support of 51% of voters ages 18 to 34 who are registered to vote or considering registering. Just 29% are backing Trump, with 6% backing third party candidates, 9% undecided and 5% saying they wouldn’t vote. 

Among the likeliest young voters, Biden earned 56% of the vote, compared with Trump’s 31%. 

A similar 2016 poll tracking the matchup between Clinton and Trump in battleground states found a whopping 22% of voters ages 18 to 34 planning on voting for third party candidates, with

Who Are The Boogaloo Bois? These Hawaiian Shirt-Wearing, Gun-Toting Americans Want War

The “boogaloo” movement has regained national attention in the wake of mass protest, particularly after investigators linked a suspect in the shooting of two California officers to the extremist anti-government group. It seems that the boogaloos (or boogaloo bois) — an anti-government group that identifies as the libertarian citizen militia — are hiding in plain sight at Black Lives Matter protests in hopes of perpetuating a “race war.” The details of this new case, though, seem to illustrate the movement’s agenda by attacking both protestors and law enforcement.

On May 29, federal protective services officer, David Patrick Underwood, was killed in a drive-by shooting in Oakland, CA when a white van pulled up outside a federal courthouse. Security footage shows the van’s door slide open and a man shooting two security officers outside, killing Underwood and critically wounding another unnamed officer. At the time, a protest against police brutality was

What Does Virtual Care Mean for the Future of Maternal Health?

Take one look at some of the maternal health data in this country and it’s hard to argue with the fact that the U.S. is not just in the midst of a pandemic, but also a maternal health crisis.

Here’s a grim glimpse: About 700 women die every year in the United States due to pregnancy or delivery complications (with 60,000 “near-miss” deaths every year), the number of reported pregnancy-related deaths has increased from 7.2 deaths for every 100,000 births in 1987 to 16.9 deaths for every 100,000 births in 2016 in this country, and wide racial disparities exist across the board with Black, American Indian, and Alaska Native women being two to three times more likely to die from pregnancy-related causes than white women.

“Before the pandemic, with all of the different touchpoints across the healthcare system and different clinics — from diagnosis and referral to treatment — we

I Officiated A Zoom Funeral. Here’s What I Didn’t Expect.

I have officiated at funerals for 16 years in my community of West Bloomfield, Michigan. As a busy working mother, I am loving and patient, organized and a wizard at time management. As a rabbi, I am serious, focused and available to families around the clock. Real life doesn’t have office hours. Hospice work is my niche, so I spend a lot of time with grieving families. Usually I am the calm presence in the room, the one who isn’t shaking. 

Not now. This time, I was all by myself, in my home office, a wreck.

A kind and gentle 70-year-old man named Saul had passed away. He had been in a rehab facility working on walking and building back his strength after a long stint in the hospital. He was optimistic about his recovery. When I visited with him, he always told me he
