Broadway closed until 2021; high price set for promising drug; Fauci optimistic of vaccine by year’s end

Broadway stages will remain dark through 2020 amid a national boom in coronavirus cases, but the nation’s leading infectious diseases expert remains “cautiously optimistic” that a vaccine could be widely available by year’s end.

And a drug company’s steep price for remdesivir, a drug that has proved to shorten recovery times for severe COVID-19 patients by about 31%, is drawing criticism.

Nashville, Tennessee, is requiring masks as of Monday. San Francisco Mayor London Breed halted its plans for businesses that were scheduled to reopen Monday. In Arizona, the mayor of one town said he has no plans to cancel a slew of upcoming summer events or require masks despite a boom in cases in his state.

“It is somewhat alarming how many expect and almost invite a more drastic infringement on their freedoms,” Eagar Mayor Bryce Hamblin said in a statement. “My response from the onset of COVID-19 pandemic has

Court Ruling on Price Transparency Unsettles Hospital Stocks

On Jun 23, the Federal court verdict upheld The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)  plan on Improving Price and Quality Transparency in American Healthcare, which went against the American Hospital Association (AHA).

The essence of the ruling is to disclose publicly the prices negotiated between hospitals and insurers in order to promote competition and reduce costs.

The Rules at a Glance

The set of rules requires hospitals to make the negotiated rates they charge insurers for medical services and prescription drugs available in the public domain.
