However, the FDA said on Thursday the cocktail is not a substitute for vaccination against COVID-19. The FDA said that bamlanivimab and etesevimab, which are administered together, could be also used as post-exposure prevention for patients who are not fully vaccinated or who are not expected to mount an adequate immune response to complete vaccination or have been exposed to an individual infected with the virus. The revision comes a day after the U.S. government bought 388,000 additional doses of Lilly's COVID-19 antibody therapy.
OTTAWA — The British Columbia Assembly of First Nations says it is "harmful and repugnant" that a People's Party of Canada candidate is comparing vaccine passports to residential schools. Vancouver-Quadra PPC candidate Renate Siekmann sent a pamphlet to voters in her riding this week with "no vaccine passport" and "discrimination is wrong" written on a photo of Indigenous children at a residential school in 1880. She later connected her complaints about vaccine passports to the "pass system" imp
Hours after media reports revealed a disgraced former Toronto-area public school teacher was the principal of a local private school, his name and any ties to him have been scrubbed from the school's website. On Wednesday, CBC News and Toronto Star investigations revealed 57-year-old Antonio Ross was running Convoy International Secondary Academy, a private school with classrooms in Markham and a nine-hectare boarding school campus near Barrie. As those investigations revealed, Ross was charged

United Nations chief Antonio Guterres said a critical meeting on climate change later this year in Scotland is at risk of failure due to mistrust between developed and developing countries and a lack of ambitious goals among some emerging economies. The U.N. COP26 conference in Glasgow aims to wring much more ambitious climate action and the money to go with it from participants around the globe.

Evergreen Catholic Separate School Division (ECSSD) decided to make masks mandatory for students and staff in all common areas and situations where two-metre distancing cannot be maintained due to the large spike of COVID-19 cases in their communities, explained Ron McKay, ECSSD’s board chair. Instead of having a meeting every time t
MAPLEWOOD, N.J. (AP) — Three days before the first day of school, a text message delivered the blow: the babysitter had exposed our three kids to COVID. Robotically, I began ticking through what the next several days would look like. Stocking up on Tylenol, and temperature checks. Hoping we get through another day without a spike. Tests on day five. Wondering if every sniffle is a symptom. I know this routine well now. Pandemic parenting created it. A lack of vaccines for the youngest kids force

MADRID (AP) — A series of small earthquakes in Spain’s Canary Islands has put authorities on alert for a possible volcanic eruption, with one official saying Thursday there is “intense seismic activity” in the area off northwest Africa. Authorities have detected more than 4,200 temblors in what scientists are calling an “earthquake swarm” around La Palma island since last Saturday. An earthquake swarm is a cluster of quakes in one area during a short period and can indicate an approaching erupti
As COVID-19 hospitalizations continue to grow across Saskatchewan, health-care workers are growing increasingly concerned about their workload. On Wednesday, there were 224 people in hospital across the province with COVID-19, along with 4,016 known active cases provincewide. "Emerg[ency] is swamped," said Shawn Toovey, an intensive care unit nurse at St. Paul's Hospital in Saskatoon. "They are drowning. They have people leaving the profession. People are just done with it, they're moving on to
Despite a sharp tuition increase on the horizon, Memorial University's international cohort has grown this fall — but it's not clear how new tuition rates will affect enrolment in years to come. This year's rise in international student enrolment is part of a growing trend at universities across Canada, said provost and vice-president Florentine Strzelczyk. "We've been able to garner more international students or attract them here to Canada as a place that has high quality education," she said.

Research suggests vision problems increased among Chinese schoolchildren during pandemic restrictions and online learning, and eye specialists think the same may have happened in U.S. kids. A report published Thursday in JAMA Ophthalmology is the latest to show the trend and the results echo those of two earlier Chinese studies. Researchers from Sun Yat-Sen University in Guangzhou compared data from eye exams given a year apart to about 2,000 children, starting in second grade. Half the children

Sony Pictures Television announced the plan Thursday, the same week that episodes filmed by ousted host Mike Richards are airing.

A Prince Rupert, B.C., man says he has yet to receive any explanation from the RCMP after officers stopped his car in what he believes was an example of racial profiling. "There was simply no other reason to pull to me over," Hakeem Lawal said, describing the traffic stop early Aug. 1. According to Lawal, 43, the officers who stopped him said he had slowed down suddenly as he drove past a police cruiser. After he asked whether he had been stopped because of his skin colour, the officers left wit
WINNIPEG — Manitobans will have a female premier for the first time. Shelly Glover, a former Winnipeg police officer and one-time Conservative member of Parliament, and Heather Stefanson, a former Manitoba health minister, are the official candidates for the next leader of the province's Progressive Conservative party. Former premier Brian Pallister stepped down earlier this month and a leadership vote is to take place Oct. 30. The party said Thursday that Glover and Stefanson are the only candi
