  • The U.S. House of Representatives held a moment of silence for Americans who have died of the coronavirus Friday.

    The U.S. leads the world with nearly 4.5 million cases and more than 150,000 confirmed deaths.

    “The chair asks all Members in the chamber, as well as Members and staff throughout the Capitol, to rise for a moment of silence in remembrance of over 150,000 Americans who have passed away from the COVID-19 virus,” said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

    The moment of reflection on the House floor took place as the Trump administration’s top health officials testified about the federal response to the pandemic.

    With hospitalizations and deaths on the rise, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infections Diseases told a House panel that Americans must again embrace public health basics such as social distancing and mask wearing.

    The U.S. government’s top testing official, Adm. Brett Giroir, told the panel it’s not possible to return all coronavirus test results to patients within three days because of overwhelming demand.

    Rapid, widespread testing is critical to containing the coronavirus outbreak, but the U.S. effort has been plagued by supply shortages and backlogs.

    In This Story: Allergy

    Allergies are a number of conditions caused by hypersensitivity of the immune system to typically harmless substances in the environment. These include hay fever, food allergies, atopic dermatitis, allergic asthma, and anaphylaxis. Symptoms may include red eyes, an itchy rash, sneezing, a runny nose, shortness of breath, or swelling.

    Common allergens include pollen and certain foods. Metals and other substances may also cause problems. Food, insect stings, and medications are common causes of severe reactions. Their development is due to both genetic and environmental factors.

    Treatments for allergies include the avoidance of known allergens and the use of medications such as steroids and antihistamines. In severe reactions injectable adrenaline (epinephrine) is recommended.

    Allergies are common. In the developed world, about 20% of people are affected by allergic rhinitis, about 6% of people have at least one food allergy, and about 20% have atopic dermatitis at some point in time. Depending on the country about 1–18% of people have asthma. Anaphylaxis occurs in between 0.05–2% of people.
