A seventh case of coronavirus in the United States has been confirmed by CDC and California health officials.
An adult male resident of Santa Clara County who had traveled to Wuhan, China, felt sick upon returning home and was treated at a local clinic and hospital, county health officials said in a statement. He did not become sick enough to require hospitalization and is "self-isolating at home" in stable condition, they said.

For graduate nursing programs seeking to engage and attract nurses to their programs, the key to effectiveness is in knowing your program, your prospective graduate nurses, and your resources.
On Jan. 29, China confirmed that almost 6,000 people have been infected with the new coronavirus scientists are calling 2019-nCoV. The progress of 2019-nCoV, as witnessed via media, feels both scary and familiar. As the 21st century moves forward, and we lose all sense of time and space, one pandemic panic seems to merge into another. Here’s a brief timeline of the emerging infectious diseases that have made headlines this century—with updates on what we’ve learned since they were the focus of global concern.
Cases of the 2019-nCoV coronavirus have increased dramatically, prompting concerns about how contagious the virus is and how it spreads. According to the WHO, 16-21 percent of people with the virus in China became severely ill and 2-3 percent of those infected have died. A key factor that influences transmission is whether the virus can spread in the absence of symptoms — either during the incubation period or in people who never get sick. On Jan. 26, 2020, Chinese officials said transmission had occurred during the incubation period. So what does the evidence tell us so far?

In 2019, healthcare organizations were the fourth most common target for ransomware attacks, according to a report released by Cylance, a BlackBerry company. Healthcare made up seven percent of attacks overall, after technology (28 percent), consumer goods (15 percent) and manufacturing (11 percent), but the sophistication of attacks is growing more complex. A year prior, in 2018, Cylance said it saw a decline in overall ransomware attacks and an increase in malicious coin miners.

The maker of Purell hand sanitizer said it will comply with a warning letter issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration over the company’s unproven claims that its products can prevent viruses like Ebola, the norovirus and influenza.
The FDA, in a letter dated Jan. 17, threatened legal action against Purell’s maker, Gojo Industries, should it not immediately correct statements about its products on the company’s website and social media accounts, which the FDA said violate sections of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.
Life expectancy in the United States is up for the first time in four years.
The increase is small — just a month — but marks at least a temporary halt to a downward trend. The rise is due to lower death rates for cancer and drug overdoses.
“Let’s just hope it continues,” said Robert Anderson, who oversees the report released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
More than 74 million cervical cancer cases and 62 million deaths could be averted in the next 100 years if 78 of the world’s poorest countries rapidly deploy HPV vaccinations, cervical screening and cancer treatment, two new studies have projected.

New findings in mSphere suggest that the genetic makeup of the host organism can influence the transfer of plasmids. By identifying the host factors that facilitate or stop plasmid transfer, the researchers hope to identify new ways to stop the spread of antibiotic resistance, which kills tens of thousands of people every year in the United States alone.
Results previously published in The New England Journal of Medicine that assessed the relationship between clinic and ambulatory BP measurements and mortality have been retracted by the journal based on a request by the authors.
The reason for the retraction was inaccuracies in the data analyses and analytic database, J.R. Banegas, MD, professor at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, and colleagues wrote in a Letter to the Editor in The New England Journal of Medicine.

The circadian clock system (from the Latin "circa diem," about a day) allows organisms to anticipate periodic changes of geophysical time and to adjust to those changes. Nearly all cells comprise molecular clocks that regulate and synchronize metabolic functions to a 24-hour cycle of day-night changes. Today, increasing evidence show that disturbances in internal clocks stemming from frequent time zone changes, irregular work schedules and aging have a significant impact on the development of metabolic diseases in human beings, including type-2 diabetes.
