The World Health Organization (WHO) said on Sunday that it is not yet clear if the new Omicron coronavirus variant is more transmissible compared to other SARS-CoV-2 variants or if it causes more severe disease. "Preliminary data suggests that there are increasing rates of hospitalization in South Africa, but this may be due to increasing overall numbers of people becoming infected, rather than a result of specific infection with Omicron," it said. However, in a statement, the agency reiterated that preliminary evidence suggests there may be a higher risk of reinfection from the variant.

One hundred and thirty children in P.E.I. received the COVID-19 vaccine on Friday — the first day the shot was available to five to 11-year-olds. A pediatric vaccine clinic was held at the County Fair Mall in Summerside, P.E.I. "I think it's important because it can help protect others," said 10-year-old Alex DesRoche. "I was worried that I'd get COVID and spread it to my papa … because he has cancer." Her mom, Robin DesRosche, is happy to have gotten her daughter vaccinated. "At any point in ti
CALAIS, France (AP) — The EU’s border agency will dispatch a plane to monitor the shores of the English Channel for migrant activity after 27 people died when their overcrowded, inflatable boat sank en route to Britain, the deadliest migration accident on record on the treacherous crossing. European migration officials agreed on the new deployment at an emergency meeting Sunday in the French port of Calais. They also pledged to work together more closely against migrant smuggling networks and th
Depending where you're living in Canada, a shortage of teachers has been a perennial issue for schools. However, COVID-19 has made it worse, spreading the problem to more classrooms and prompting education experts to call for both short-term solutions as well as longer-lasting efforts to fill the gap. "We have a chronic teacher shortage that has become a serious crisis during the pandemic," said educational consultant and researcher Paul Bennett, director of Schoolhouse Institute in Halifax. The

A P.E.I. woman is raising awareness of a unique safety measure for medical conditions such as seizures. Stratford's Paxton Caseley has focal epilepsy. She often has seizures than can cause her to lose her motor skills and sensory ability. "It kind of depends on the type that I have, but most commonly I will kind of lose awareness," she said. "I don't lose consciousness, but I'm not entirely aware of what's going on around me. It's very difficult to understand what people are saying." Seizures tr
OTTAWA — Children turning up for their COVID-19 vaccine in Quebec last Friday were surprised to find not just the promise of a sticker at the end of the ordeal, but a waggy-tailed dog eager to be petted and potentially calm their fears over getting the shots. At least three provinces have been recruiting therapy dogs to help reassure children and adults nervous about getting needles at vaccination clinics for months. Now the specially-trained canines are being enlisted to help with the rollout o
While COVID-19 has greatly affected post-secondary students and institutions across Canada, new research shows the pandemic has resulted in only a small decline in international student enrolments nationwide. This is especially the case for students applying for study permits to the Yukon, with international student enrolment at Yukon University — the first university in Canada's North — now returning to pre-pandemic levels. The study was funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Cou
WASHINGTON (AP) — Both sides are telling the Supreme Court there's no middle ground in Wednesday's showdown over abortion. The justices can either reaffirm the constitutional right to an abortion or wipe it away altogether. Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 ruling that declared a nationwide right to abortion, is facing its most serious challenge in 30 years in front of a court with a 6-3 conservative majority that has been remade by three appointees of President Donald Trump. “There are no half mea
It's been a stressful week for tenants who lost homes due to smoke and water damage at an apartment building in Charlottetown. Many are clearing out their last belongings this weekend. Some said they are staying with friends, others have rented new spots, and some are still looking. Many of the people who lived in building were students or people in P.E.I. on work permits, trying to accumulate hours to qualify for permanent residency. Pavan Kumer Vemulapalli, 30, works at a local fast-food resta
PRETORIA, South Africa (AP) — The overcast, drizzly skies match the somber mood at the Tshwane University of Technology, a hot spot in South Africa’s latest surge of COVID-19 cases, apparently driven by the new omicron variant that is leading countries around the world to impose new restrictions. After several students tested positive, the university postponed some exams, and officials in the larger metropolitan area of Tshwane, which includes the capital of Pretoria, are pushing vaccinations, e

Six days into the flood, Harman Kaur and her husband took a drive past their acreage and found thousands of their ruby-red blueberry bushes were still completely buried in the murky, brown floodwater. Leaking pesticides swirled around the field. Garbage and gas tanks floated past. The smell of fuel filled their noses. "There was a complete layer of oil on top [of the water], and we're talking what I could just see from the road," said Kaur, 29, whose family has owned their farm in the Arnold are
