NEW YORK (AP) — Prime Minister Imran Khan sought to cast Pakistan as the victim of American ungratefulness and an international double standard in his address to the United Nations General Assembly on Friday.

When Patti Murphy came down with COVID-19 in the frightening first days of the pandemic, she had no idea what she'd be in for. "It was a remarkable time to be sick, because no one really knew anything, to be honest," said Murphy, who ended up in the ER with breathing issues and still suffers symptoms more than a year later.
