Pine-Sol Added to EPA's List of Disinfectants Effective Against Coronavirus

A common household cleaner has been found to be effective against the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) — and it's not sold out everywhere.

Earlier this month, the Clorox Company announced that its Pine-Sol Original Multi-Surface Cleaner was given approval by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to be added to a list of products and brands that successfully squash the coronavirus. It's listed under 5813-101 with the product name Tuck 3 and the active ingredient of glycolic acid on the EPA's website of approved cleaning products, according to Good Housekeeping.

The product was tested in a third-party lab that proved its efficacy against SARS-Cov-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) within a 10-minute contact time on hard, flat surfaces.

"Pine-Sol Original Multi-Surface Cleaner now offers the clean families have trusted through generations with the protection they need right now against the spread of SARS-Cov-2, the virus that causes COVID-19," Chris Hyder, vice president and general manager of the cleaning division at Clorox, said in a statement.

"We hope this new Pine-Sol kill claim will increase access to disinfectants that can help prevent the spread of COVID-19," he added.

The company recommends using Pine-Sol Original Multi-Surface Cleaner at full strength and applying it with a clean sponge or cloth to hard, nonporous surfaces. Clorox added that people should let the product remain wet on the surface for 10 minutes before rinsing.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released findings earlier this summer that indicated many Americans might not be cleaning as effectively as they think.

In May, the CDC polled 502 adults in the U.S. about their cleaning habits during the pandemic. Sixty percent of respondents said they were cleaning their homes more frequently than they had in previous months. However, according to the survey’s results, more people were also calling poison control centers and reporting adverse health effects due to cleaners over the same period.

“Knowledge gaps were identified in several areas, including safe preparation of cleaning and disinfectant solutions, use of recommended personal protective equipment when using cleaners and disinfectants, and safe storage of hand sanitizers, cleaners, and disinfectants,” the CDC explained in June.

To properly clean, the CDC recommends removing dirt, dust, or debris on surfaces before disinfecting.

If we spent the cost of COVID-19 on pandemic preparations it would have lasted 500 years

COVID-19 has taken advantage of a world in disorder, causing catastrophic health, social, and economic consequences and irreparable harm to humanity. The virus has killed close to a million people and many more may die as a result of its impact on health systems, food supplies, and the economy. The financial cost will be in the trillions.

This will not be the last global health emergency. The world simply cannot afford to be unprepared again, warns the Global Preparedness Monitoring Board (GPMB) in its second report “A World in Disorder,” released today.

Last year, the GPMB warned that the world was unprepared for the very real likelihood of a deadly pandemic spreading around the globe, killing millions of people, disrupting economies, and destabilizing national security. The Board called for urgent action to break the cycle of panic and neglect that has characterized the response to global health crises in the past.

In its new report, the GPMB provides a harsh assessment of the global COVID-19 response, calling it “a collective failure to take pandemic prevention, preparedness, and response seriously and prioritize it accordingly.” In many countries, leaders have struggled to take early decisive action based on science, evidence and best practice. This lack of accountability by leaders has led to a profound and deepening deficit in trust that is hampering response efforts.

“Transparency and accountability are essential in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Elhadj As Sy, co-Chair of the GPMB. “Trust is the foundation of government-community relationships for better health but that trust dissipates when governments and leaders do not deliver on their commitments.”

Responsible leadership and good citizenship have been key determinants of COVID-19’s impact, the report finds—systems are only as effective as the people who use them.

The report also finds that, while COVID-19 has demonstrated that the world is deeply interconnected through economics, trade, information, and travel, one of the greatest challenges of the pandemic has been faltering multilateral cooperation. Leadership by the G7, G20, and multilateral organizations has been hampered by geopolitical tensions. The Board calls on leaders to renew their commitment to the multilateral system and strengthen WHO as an impartial and independent international organization. Weakening and undermining the multilateral action will have serious consequences on global health security, it warns. No-one is safe until all are safe.

“Viruses don’t respect borders. The only way out of this devastating pandemic is along the path of collective action, which demands a strong and effective multilateral system,” said H.E. Dr. Gro Harlem Brundtland, co-chair of the GPMB. “The UN system, which includes the WHO, was created after World War II and has helped make the world a better place for billions of people. It needs to be defended, strengthened, and revitalized, not attacked and undermined.”

The report highlights how the devastating social and economic impact of pandemics, especially for the vulnerable and disadvantaged, is often underestimated and ignored. COVID-19’s long-term socioeconomic impacts are predicted to last for decades, with the World Bank’s conservative scenario estimating a US$ 10 trillion earning loss over time for the younger generation as a result of pandemic-related educational deficits.

COVID-19 has demonstrated the importance of protecting lives and livelihoods and widening our understanding of preparedness to make education, social, and economic sectors pandemic proof. “A World in Disorder” reveals that the return on investment for pandemic preparedness is immense. It would take 500 years to spend as much on preparedness as the world is currently losing due to COVID-19.

“The pandemic has shown the fragility of not only our health systems, but also our global economy. The impact of COVID-19 has been huge in the world and particularly in my region, the Americas, with a sharp increase in health, social and economic inequities,” said Jeannette Vega, GPMB member and Chief Medical Innovation and Technology Officer, La Red de Salud UC-Christus, Chile. “Let’s hope that this time we finally learn the lesson and invest in preparedness and public goods for health to avoid similar tragedies in the future.”

The report highlights the actions that must be taken to end the COVID-19 pandemic and avoid the next catastrophe—to bring order out of chaos. It calls for responsible leadership, engaged citizenship, strong and agile systems for health security, sustained investment, and robust global governance for preparedness.

“A World in Disorder” identifies the specific commitments and actions leaders and citizens must take—boldly, decisively, and immediately. These include sustainable and predictable financing for global and national health security, and a call to hold a UN Summit on Global Health Security to develop an international framework for health emergency preparedness and response.

At Least 29 New Jersey Lifeguards Have Tested Positive for the Coronavirus, Health Officials Say


At least 29 lifeguards from two New Jersey beaches have tested positive for the coronavirus after attending social gatherings together outside of work, health officials say.

On Friday, Daniel J. Krupinski, the Long Beach Island Health Department director said the lifeguards are from Harvey Cedars and Surf City, neighboring boroughs on Long Beach Island, according to the radio station WHYY.

“The health department started receiving reports of COVID-19 activity among Surf City lifeguards on Saturday, July 18 and Harvey Cedars lifeguards on Sunday, July 19,” Krupinski said. “We have reason to believe the case activity stems from common social gatherings outside of work on July 12 and 14.”

At least 12 lifeguards from Surf City tested positive and 17 lifeguards from Harvey Cedars tested positive, according to WHYY and the Associated Press.

Mayor Jonathan Oldham of Harvey Cedars told the AP that the boroughs were alerted to the cluster on Thursday, adding that area lifeguards were being quarantined until cleared by doctors.

"Please be aware that when Harvey Cedars Beach Patrol Lifeguards have been on duty, since the beginning of the season, they have been instructed to follow a strict protocol of social distancing, and were each staffed with a Personal Protection Fanny Pack, including ample disinfectant wipes and face coverings," Harvey Cedars shared on its website. "Lifeguards sat in separate chairs, six feet or more apart, with their own equipment,  and with a perimeter of at least 6 feet between the Lifeguard chairs and beachgoers."

The website also noted the town has approximately 73 lifeguards on staff. "So our beaches will remain fully staffed with all safety protocols in place."

In the last two weeks, New Jersey has seen a 27 percent increase in the daily average number of new confirmed cases, according to a New York Times database. As of Monday morning, there have been at least 181,283 cases and 15,787 deaths from the virus in the state.

New study reveals older adults coped with pandemic best

Adults aged 60 and up have fared better emotionally compared to younger adults (18-39) and middle-aged adults (40-59) amid the COVID-19 pandemic, according to new UBC research published recently in the Journal of Gerontology: Psychological Sciences.

Based on daily diary data collected between mid-March and mid-April of this year, the researchers found that older adults experienced greater emotional well-being and felt less stressed and threatened by the pandemic.

“Our findings provide new evidence that older adults are emotionally resilient despite public discourse often portraying their vulnerability. We also found that younger adults are at greater risk for loneliness and psychological distress during the pandemic,” says Patrick Klaiber, the study’s lead author and a graduate student in the UBC department of psychology.

For the study, the researchers analyzed data from 776 participants aged 18-91, who lived in Canada and the U.S. and completed daily surveys for one week about their stressors, positive events and their emotional well-being during the first several weeks of the pandemic. The time period was selected as it was likely to be the period of greatest disruption and uncertainty as local, provincial and state governments began issuing stay-at-home orders.

Klaiber says the difference in reported stress levels may be a result of age-related stressors and how well the different age groups respond to stress.

“Younger and middle-aged adults are faced with family- and work-related challenges, such as working from home, homeschooling children and unemployment,” says Klaiber. “They are also more likely to experience different types of ongoing non-pandemic stressors than older adults, such as interpersonal conflicts.”

Klaiber adds, “While older adults are faced with stressors such as higher rates of disease contraction, severe complications and mortality from COVID-19, they also possess more coping skills to deal with stress as they are older and wiser.”

The study also reveals older and middle-aged adults experienced more daily positive events—such as remote positive social interactions—in 75 per cent of their daily surveys, which helped increase positive emotions compared to younger adults.

Coronavirus: Physical distancing may help ease burden on hospitals, but only to a point

Scientists have found that longer periods of social distancing alone are not successful when it comes to slowing COVID-19 spread, an advance which may help make better decisions in countries where a second wave of the pandemic is expected.

“Conventional wisdom was, the more intense and long-term the social distancing, the more you will curb the disease spread,” said Rajan Chakrabarty, a co-author of the study from Washington University in St. Louis in the US.

According to the study, published in the journal Chaos, any strategy that involves social distancing requires other steps be taken in tandem.

“But that is true if you have social distancing implemented with contact tracing, isolation and testing. Without those, you will give rise to a second wave,” Chakrabarty said.

Payton Beeler, another co-author of the study, noted that if social distancing is the only measure taken, it must be implemented extremely carefully in order for its benefits to be fully realized.

Their epidemiological model used data gathered by Johns Hopkins University in the US between March 18 and March 29, a period marked by a rapid surge in COVID-19 cases and the onset of social distancing in most US states. Calibrating the model using these datasets allowed the authors to analyse unbiased results that had not yet been affected by large-scale distancing in place, they said.

The model also included details on how much people of different age groups interact, and how that affects the spread of transmission.

“Had social distancing been implemented earlier, we probably would’ve done a better job,” Chakrabarty said.

Over the short-term, more distancing and less hospital demand go hand in hand, the scientists said, adding that this is only up to two weeks. After that, they said the time spent distancing does not benefit hospital demand as much. Society would have to increase social distancing time exponentially in order to see a linear decrease in hospital demand, the researchers noted.

They said this leads to diminishing returns. Society would see smaller and smaller benefits to hospital demand the longer it spent social distancing, the scientists explained.

According to the researchers, if social distancing “alone” is to be implemented longer than two weeks, a moderate shut down, say between 50-70 per cent, could be more effective for the society than a stricter complete shut-down in yielding the largest reduction in medical demands.

Another strategy for flattening the curve involves acting intermittently, alternating between strict social distancing and no distancing to alleviate the strain on hospitals, the study noted. According to the model, the most efficient distancing- to- no-distancing ratio is five to one, meaning one day of no distancing for every five days at home. Had society acted in this way, the researchers said the hospital burden could have been reduced by 80 per cent. “Bending the curve using social distancing alone is analogous to slowing down the front of a raging wildfire without extinguishing the glowing embers,” said Chakrabarty.

“They are waiting to start their own fires once the wind carries them away,” he said, adding however that his team’s model cannot inform strategies going forward as it used data collected in March. But Chakrabarty added that it may be able to inform our actions if we find ourselves in a similar situation in the future.

“Next time, we must act faster, and be more aggressive when it comes to contact tracing and testing and isolation,” Chakrabarty said.

California’s 2 Largest School Districts Will Remain Online-Only This Fall Due to Coronavirus


California’s two largest school districts — Los Angeles and San Diego — will remain closed for the fall semester and continue to have online-only instruction, they announced Monday.

The two districts, which serve around 825,000 students, said that the risk of spreading COVID-19 is too high to have students, teachers and staff back in schools by the end of the summer, as they had originally hoped.

The school districts had to scrap their reopening plans as COVID-19 cases soared in California. The state has seen record numbers of new daily infections, with their highest yet — 9,897 — on Tuesday. Los Angeles county has seen the most cases in the state, with 133,830 of the 331,626 in California since the start of the pandemic.

With cases surging, school officials said that they could not safely reopen.

“There’s a public health imperative to keep schools from becoming a petri dish,” said Austin Beutner, the superintendent for Los Angeles Unified School District, according to The New York Times.

In a joint statement, the two districts said that they don’t know yet if this is the right decision, but it’s “clear” that their areas do not have the virus well enough under control to reopen.

“Those countries that have managed to safely reopen schools have done so with declining infection rates and on-demand testing available. California has neither. The skyrocketing infection rates of the past few weeks make it clear the pandemic is not under control.”

Los Angeles is the second largest school district in the country, after New York City, which serves more than 984,400 students. On Wednesday, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio said that schools would not fully open this fall and instead bring students back on a staggered schedule. Students will come in to the classroom one to three days a week, and spend the rest of the time doing online learning.

On Monday, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said that schools in the state can reopen if their area has 5 percent or less infection rate over the last 14 days.

The school announcements come after President Donald Trump threatened to cut off federal funding to schools that do not reopen for on-campus learning, which he urged along with Education Secretary Betsy DeVos. Trump’s push goes against recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control, and Vice President Mike Pence later said that the CDC would issue new guidance on reopening schools that reflect Trump’s position.

Democratic lawmakers decried Trump and DeVos’ comments, along with several child and school advocacy groups. In a joint statement, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Federation of Teachers, the School Superintendents Association and the National Education Association said that the decision to reopen should be “based on evidence, not politics.”

“We should leave it to health experts to tell us when the time is best to open up school buildings, and listen to educators and administrators to shape how we do it,” they said.

Researchers survey food banks as pandemic bites

A new study is seeking feedback from Australasian food banks on how they are coping with growing demand in the wake of the COVID-19 global pandemic.

The survey, led by University of Canterbury (UC) researchers, aims to find out more about the economic and social impacts of the virus.

“Since the COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for supplies from food banks has increased exponentially,” says lead researcher Dr. Rosemarie Martin, who specializes in food, policy and wellbeing for UC’s MacMillan Brown Center for Pacific Studies.

“Food banks around the world, including in New Zealand and Australia, have been stepping in to feed families and help people facing economic and social devastation triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic. People who have never used a food bank before, and would usually see themselves as middle class families, are now also needing their help. The increase in demand is putting food banks under pressure and potentially the situation could get even worse.”

Dr. Martin says the aim of the survey, which is part of UC’s Food, Policy and Wellbeing Research Cluster, aims to determine the best policies for addressing growing food security issues in times of crisis.

She is working on the study with Dr. Matthew Ruby from the La Trobe University, School of Psychology and Public Health (Australia) and UC Professor Steven Ratuva, Director of the Macmillan Brown Center for Pacific Studies.

The survey, which is underway now, asks managers of food banks and other community food organizations in New Zealand and Australia which sectors of society have been affected most by the pandemic, what supplies they have and how food banks are planning for the future.

Dr. Martin says many people have had a change in circumstances, including losing their jobs, as a result of the COVID-19 crisis and border closures. After carrying out some initial interviews with food bank managers in New Zealand she believes Māori and Pasifika are being disproportionately affected.

“The pandemic has exacerbated pre-existing social and economic inequality and food security has become a major issue. We hope the results of this research will be used by Government agencies to contribute to more equitable and effective food policy as a matter of urgency. There is a real need to do something to address inequalities around food security in New Zealand. We are a wealthy country that produces plenty of food, so how can it be that so many people don’t have enough to eat? This has been identified as a problem since the 1990s but it still hasn’t been addressed. Now, with recent global events, it is getting worse.”

Pandemic advances alternatives to hallway medicine

Efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in Canadian hospitals have produced a surprising change in emergency departments: an abrupt end to hallway medicine. Hospital corridors are no longer overflowing with stretchers. Instead, social distancing in waiting areas, virtual emergency department visits, and a clear sight-line along every hallway have become the new normal.

Dr. Andrea Unger, chief of emergency services at Brant Community Health in south-west Ontario, says overcrowding had become the status quo in many emergency departments before the pandemic. “The rules on how many patients we managed in the emergency department were always different from other areas of the hospital,” she says.

Delays in discharge, shortages of beds in hospitals and long-term care, and poor access to care in other parts of the health system all contributed to the seemingly intractable problem.

According to Unger, COVID-19 has been a wake-up call for hospital leaders. She insists her department cannot and will not return to pre-COVID levels of crowding. “Now, our overcrowding problem has become a risk to health care workers and the entire population, demanding more accountability; this is a fundamental shift,” Unger says.

Emergency departments responded by setting up “hot” and “cold” zones, separating people who may have COVID-19 from those without symptoms. Some converted classrooms and offices into extra examination rooms exclusively for patients with COVID-19.

Dr. Paul Hannam, director of emergency services at North York General in Toronto, says his department went a step further, setting up two separate hot zones—one for patients with mild symptoms and one for more severe cases.

While sicker patients are treated in an isolated area inside the hospital, “patients with mild symptoms never actually come inside the emergency department,” Hannam explains. Instead, the hospital converted an ambulance driveway with a high roof into a “mini-field hospital” with eight beds. “We now even do chest X-rays outside,” he says.

Beyond setting up temporary spaces to ease crowding, emergency departments are also finding ways to deliver care virtually.

In Brampton, William Osler Health System was already grappling with emergency department gridlock due to an influx of seasonal flu cases when COVID-19 emerged in Canada. According to quality lead Dr. Prashant Halper, his community would be particularly vulnerable if cases of COVID-19 surged because it has just one hospital bed per 1000 patients, below the Canadian average of 1.6.

So Halper and his team accelerated plans to deliver more emergency care remotely. “Virtual care in emergency medicine would have been met with a lot of resistance a year ago,” Halper says. “The pandemic made us ask, ‘Why not now?'”

At Brampton Civic Hospital, patients who might have stayed a few days in the hospital with kidney or skin infections, asthma complications or COVID-19, now have the option to stay home supported by a virtual health care team. An emergency physician and nurse practitioner check-in daily with these patients by phone and video chat and coordinate in-home nursing, radiology and specialist appointments as needed.

“Daily follow-up ensures the patient is doing well. If their condition changes, we can get them back into the hospital, avoiding the emergency department,” Halper says.

Dr. Eddy Lang, head of emergency medicine at the Cummings School of Medicine in Calgary, believes the virtual care options adopted during the pandemic are here to stay, and Canadians may use emergency departments differently in the future. Lang says that broader uptake of virtual care in family medicine and other specialties may also reduce pressure on acute care as patients can access help elsewhere. “Emergency department may not need to be as much of a safety net,” he says.

In Alberta, the expansion of a call-center service coordinating contact between long-term care homes and emergency departments was critical to keeping vulnerable patients out of the hospital, Lang adds. Known as RAAPID, community physicians can call the service for advice when their patients need a higher level of care than they can provide. The service offers information on where beds are available and sends palliative care, and nursing supports to long-term care homes as required. In many cases, a single call may prevent unnecessary hospitalization, says Lang. He credits RAAPID with reducing the spread of COVID-19 between institutions and says the expanded service will continue for the foreseeable future.

Jamie Otis Recalls ‘Rough’ Unmedicated Birth Amid Coronavirus Pandemic

Baby bliss? Jamie Otis revealed what it was really like having an unmedicated birth for her son, Hendrix, one month after his arrival.

“The only reason why I did the unmedicated home birth was because of the pandemic, the world right now,” Otis, 34, told Us Weekly exclusively on Wednesday, June 17, while promoting her partnership with Align and their launch of a colic relief product. “I just felt like it was safer, because I had a low risk pregnancy, to be able to just offer that home rather than go into the hospital or like most sick people are going. And man, it was going to be painful.”

She explained that although she knew what was coming, having had daughter Henley in 2017 and being a labor and delivery nurse herself, without the meds “it was rough.” On top of that, the entire thing was filmed.

The Married at First Sight alum continued, “Barbaric is a great word, having no control over yourself. Like, I don’t even know what I was saying. I’m, like, if there’s some kind of bleeps, I’m sorry.”

The mother of two prepared for her son’s natural birth and said that although it “almost seems foreign to us” based on the frequency of hospital births using an epidural, “it’s really natural to have a baby.”

Despite the pain that came during her little one’s arrival, the Wifey 101 author noticed a difference between how quickly she bonded with her son during the home birth vs her daughter’s hospital one.

“I had him and I looked at him and I was instantly in love and I didn’t have that type of bond or experience with Henley,” she told Us. “So I mean it’s worth it. It’s worth all the pain and, like, you know, all of that, just to be able to have that overwhelming sense of love for your baby.”

The former Bachelor contestant added: “I wish I could have had that with my daughter. And obviously I love her. I mean, sorry, Henley for watching this later on in life. I love you. I loved it from the moment I saw.”

Otis, who shared both children with husband Doug Hehner, shared photos of her water birth earlier this month. “This absolute hardest, but more MIRACULOUS & rewarding thing I’ve ever done is give birth to my baby unmedicated,” she wrote via Instagram on June 9.

The New York native announced her son’s arrival on May 13, writing, “He’s HERE!”

The couple later announced they decided to switch their baby boy’s name from Hayes to Hendrix upon meeting him.
