*Howard University President Dr. Wayne A.I. Frederick, who is also a physician, has a preliminary diagnosis for America’s condition while fighting the coronavirus.

“I would say the patient is critically ill, but it is a treatable disease if you follow the prescription,” said Frederick, who helms the historically black university in Washington, D.C. with an enrollment of about 10,000. “If you follow the social-distance protocols, get tested, and stay home when you’re feeling sick, you will recover.”

Frederick was also called upon to advise the school’s affiliated Howard University Hospital on finding ways to treat the under-served minority community in the nation’s capital. despite their financial circumstances. He sees the pandemic from a medical and academic perspective, and understands how the world has morphed into one in which students are growing from having to navigate challenges not seen before to prepare for life after college.

“It gives me hope because when you see young people having to navigate through tough times, it will benefit them in the future,” he said.

*An Alabama woman is raising 12 kids after her sister and brother-in-law died a month apart from COVID-19.

Francesca McCall says following the loss of her younger sister Chantale and her brother-in-law Rance Martin, she took in Chantale’s children who ranged between the ages of 2 to 17. She already has seven of her own kids, which brought the total number of children living under one roof to 12.

“We have all the boys in one room and we have all the girls in the other two rooms, so everybody’s kind of just on top of one another,” McCall said, as reported by CNN. “So we’ve been making the best out of the situation.”

McCall’s sister worked for a home health agency and always took precautions. 

“She wore the mask, she kept her distance, she did the proper hand washing and all the proper things she was supposed to do,” McCall said. Her sister was first hospitalized for COVID back in September and her condition worsened.

Chantale, who had bronchitis and asthma, died about two weeks after she was first hospitalized on Sept. 16. Her husband died on Oct. 25. 

“They’re doing OK at times and at times they break down, so they’re having their days and their moments,” McCall said about her nieces and nephews, who are reportedly going to school remotely. “It’s been very hard losing their friends, church family and basically everything that’s held dear to them.”

Carla McDonald, McCall’s friend from church, created a GoFundMe campaign to help with the family’s expenses.  

“She loves these children with all of [her] heart,” McDonald said. “She is not the one to ask for assistance from anyone. She is just trying to raise 12 children and meet their everyday needs not only for Christmas.”

*”Black Panther” star Letitia Wright has set off a firestorm and says she’s being cancelled after tweeting a video that promotes anti-vaccination propaganda.

On Thursday, the British actress posted a video on Twitter that makes unsubstantiated claims about coronavirus vaccines. Twitter’s rebuke was swift, with folks calling her “irresponsible” and “reckless” for sharing such unproven claims as fact. Don Cheadle called the video “Hot Garbage,” adding he would “never defend anybody posting this.”

Wright has been defending her right to “simply ask questions” ever since, telling irate fans on Twitter regarding the forthcoming COVID-19 vaccines, “I’m just concerned about what’s in it that’s all.”

She also tweeted this morning, “My ONLY intention of posting the video was it raised my concerns with what the vaccine contains and what we are putting in our bodies.”

After more back and forth with fans, she tweeted: “if you don’t conform to popular opinions. but ask questions and think for yourself….you get cancelled.”

The controversial video shared by Wright included a long monologue by Tomi Arayomi, a founder of a Christian ministry. He said companies and the government were not being transparent and questioned vaccine ingredients. He did not provide evidence for his claims, which echo those of others who have baselessly criticized vaccine use.

Here’s the video tweeted by Wright that set everything off:

*California Governor Gavin Newsom announced a new regional stay-at-home order on Thursday, and it comes as the state’s COVID cases surge. 

As reported by Daily Mail, a record 9,702 people are currently hospitalized across the state, with 2,147  in intensive care, leaving the state with fewer than 1,800 available beds.

Newsome’s stay-at-home order will apply to any of California’s five regions when intensive care unit capacity drops below 15 percent, which none currently meet that threshold.

Here’s more from MSN:

That certainly includes Los Angeles County, which had only 122 such beds left as of Wednesday; Imperial County, which had only 2 ICU beds available on Thursday; and counties in the state’s Central Valley. 

Retail will still be allowed, but at max 20% capacity. Bars, wineries, personal service businesses, hair salons and barbershops are to be closed. Schools with waivers can stay open, along with “critical infrastructure.” Restaurants will be limited to takeout and delivery service only.

“This is the final surge in this pandemic,” said Newsom during a press conference. “We do not anticipate having to do this again.”  The governor also noted the state has not yet seen an increase in COVID cases related to Thanksgiving holiday/travel.

California reported 18,951 new cases on Thursday, the same day the state had only 1,731 out of 7,662 ICU beds available, according to the report.

On Wednesday, 20,759 new cases had been reported over a 24-hour period.
