TORONTO — The Ontario Medical Association says it's "troubled" by findings regarding children's mental health during the pandemic, including a decline in social and emotional development in youngsters, and a stark increase in emergency room visits from patients presenting with suicidal ideation. Mental health struggles have risen across different age groups, OMA doctors said Wednesday in a webinar with media. And they're concerned about long-term impacts that could stretch years after lockdown measures end. Dr. Saba Merchant, a pediatrician in Vaughan, Ont., referred to the pandemic as a time of "social malnutrition" for some children. She said she's seen "skyrocketing cases" of anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, obsessions, compulsions, obesity and other concerns. "I must say that what we're seeing is just the tip of the iceberg," she said. The inability of kids to attend daycare, school and other group activities has taken away elements of emotional and social development, Merchant said, while financial stress felt by some families is leading to problems of food insecurity, neglect and abuse, all of which are causing declines in mental health. A study by SickKids, published in February, showed a 40 per cent prevalence in anxiety and depression among children during the first lockdown last spring. Dr. Daniel Rosenfield, a pediatric emergency specialist at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children, says his department saw an approximately 25 per cent increase in cases of depression, suicidal ideation or self-harm. While Rosenfield said the number of emergency visits overall decreased significantly since the pandemic started, poisonings and ingestions "didn't drop at all." He said those events are sometimes indicative of suicide attempts, but boredom and experimentation are other reasons teens may intentionally ingest things like prescription drugs, bleach or other household products. "That is a significant increase, which is why we're obviously discussing it," Rosenfield said, adding that similar increases have been seen in other parts of the country. Merchant says teens have been missing out on interactions with their peers over the last year. So if they ask for extra screen time to socialize virtually, parents should consider allowing it. While she admits that teens are less likely to enjoy socializing with their parents than younger children, she encourages parents try to engage in conversations with their older kids anyway. "When you do have that window with them, try to make it a very positive interaction," she said. "Show interest in what they're doing. Be curious about their life and create that kind of easygoing communication." Merchant says early detection of mental health decline is key, urging parents to contact their doctors if they notice signs of struggle in their children, regardless of age. She says to look for patterns in behavioural changes, including irritability, a lack of interest in activities they used to engage in, and eating and sleeping more or less than usual, that last "over a period of time," not just a day or two. Merchant recommends maintaining "social exposure" for children when it's safe to do so, suggesting forming small bubbles with another family where public health measures allow. She called children "the silent sufferers" of the pandemic. While they're less likely to become infected or experience severe COVID disease, they've been impacted by the virus in many other ways. While children aren't yet eligible to receive any of the COVID-19 vaccines approved in Canada, Dr. Vicky Fera, an infectious disease physician at Markham Stouffville Hospital, hopes kids can start receiving their first shots before the next school year begins. Fera says preliminary data from Pfizer-BioNTech's clinical trial on kids aged 12 to 15 suggested high efficacy in that age group. Another Pfizer trial on those aged six months to 12 years is in the enrollment phase now. Moderna's clinical trial on kids aged 12-18 has completed its enrollment stage, she said, noting the goal would be to see data by the end of 2021 and start vaccinating in early 2022 with that jab. "Both mRNA vaccines look very promising in the pediatric population," she said. This report by The Canadian Press was first published April 14, 2021. The Canadian Press

The latest news on COVID-19 developments in Canada (all times Eastern): 6:10 p.m. Alberta is reporting 1,412 new cases of COVID-19 and eight additional deaths due to the virus. The province says 778 new variant cases have also been detected. There are 420 people in hospital due to COVID-19, with 92 in intensive care. The province currently has the highest rate of active cases in Canada. --- 6 p.m. The Alberta government says schools in Calgary will move to at-home learning starting next week for students in grades 7 to 12. The change, due to COVID-19, is to last for two weeks. Alberta Education says it approved requests from public and Catholic schools in the city to make the move to online learning. Education Minister Adriana LaGrange says in a statement that some schools boards are dealing with operational pressures due to rising COVID-19 cases. --- 3:50 p.m. Saskatchewan is reporting 193 new cases of COVID-19. The province says there has also been one additional death due to the virus – a person in their 70s in the southeast region. There are 203 people in hospitals in Saskatchewan because of COVID-19 and 41 of them are in intensive care. --- 2:40 p.m. Yukon is reporting a new case of COVID-19, its second new case this week and the 76th in the territory since the start of the pandemic. Chief medical officer of health Dr. Brendan Hanley says case 76 and the other cases reported this month are linked to the P.1 variant, which first originated in Brazil. He says these are the first confirmed cases of the variant in Yukon and all the cases involve a single family that travelled to the territory and is now self-isolating in Whitehorse. He says there is no indication of community spread. --- 2 p.m. Nova Scotia is reporting two new cases of COVID-19 today and a total of 42 active cases. Health officials identified one case in the Halifax area related to international travel and one in the eastern zone related to domestic travel outside of Atlantic Canada. Officials also noted 18 previous cases, saying they have now been identified as being of the variant originally identified in the U.K. They said most of those cases are now considered resolved, with 10 related to travel, seven confirmed as close contacts of previously reported cases, and one still under investigation. --- 1:35 p.m. Manitoba is reporting three new deaths related to COVID-19 and 86 new cases. Six earlier cases have been removed due to data correction, however, so the net increase is 80. The province is also expanding eligibility for vaccines among the general population by reducing the minimum age by one year. Eligibility now starts at 39 for First Nations people and 59 for others. --- 1:25 p.m. Ontario’s solicitor general says a delay in Moderna shipments is causing vaccination clinics to cancel appointments. Sylvia Jones says a 10-day delay in receiving the latest doses of the COVID-19 vaccine has had a “cascade” effect on public health units running the clinics. She says the province has faced three delays in delivery of the Moderna shots since its vaccine rollout started. Ontario said Tuesday that two shipments of the Moderna vaccine scheduled to arrive in April have each been delayed by a week. --- 1:15 p.m. New Brunswick is reporting 16 new cases of COVID-19 today. Health officials say 14 of the new cases are in the hard-hit Edmundston area, which is under lockdown. They say the two other cases are in the Saint John region. The number of active cases is 141, and 19 patients are hospitalized with the disease, including 13 in intensive care. New Brunswick has reported a total of 1,752 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 33 deaths linked to the virus. --- 11:20 a.m. Health Canada says the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine will remain authorized for all adults in Canada after completing a safety review. The department says a new and extremely rare blood clotting syndrome may be linked to the vaccine but the benefits still far outweigh the risks. The conclusions are in line with findings issued in Europe and the United Kingdom last week. The decision comes the day after Canada reported its first-ever case of a blood clot in a patient who received the AstraZeneca vaccine in Quebec. The National Advisory Committee on Immunization is reviewing this information and will decide if it needs to change its recommendation that the vaccine not be used on anyone under the age of 55. --- 11:10 a.m. Quebec is reporting 1,559 new COVID-19 cases today and seven more deaths attributed to the novel coronavirus. Health officials say hospitalizations rose by 17, to 660, and 152 people were in intensive care, a rise of two. The province says it administered 68,192 COVID-19 vaccine doses on Tuesday. Quebec has reported a total of 331,031 infections and 10,763 deaths linked to the virus. --- 11 a.m. Newfoundland and Labrador is reporting three new cases of COVID-19, all of which are linked to travel. Officials say the three people involved are in the eastern region of the province and all are self-isolating. Chief medical officer of health Dr. Janice Fitzgerald says several cases of COVID-19 have been identified in the region of Quebec which borders Labrador. Fitzgerald says testing is available to anyone who visited restaurants in the area between April 5 and April 9 in the Fermont area, but she says the risk to the public is low. --- 10:35 a.m. Ontario is reporting 4,156 cases of COVID-19 and 28 more deaths linked to the virus. Health Minister Christine Elliott says there are 1,254 new cases in Toronto, 593 in Peel Region, and 476 in York Region. She also says there are 340 new cases in Ottawa and 248 in Durham Region. The ministry of health says that 642 people are in intensive care. Ontario says that more than 112,000 doses of a COVID-19 vaccine were administered since Tuesday's report. --- 9 a.m. Two health networks in Toronto say shortages of COVID-19 vaccine are forcing them to limit or close immunization clinics. Scarborough Health Network says it will be closing its Centennial College and Centenary hospital clinics today. University Health Network says it has had to pause registration for appointments for adults over 18 who qualify for vaccination based on their postal code. Both organizations say they will reopen their clinics as soon as they receive more vaccines. --- This report by The Canadian Press was first published April 14, 2021. The Canadian Press

PLYMOUTH, Conn. — After more than 250 days on the run, an 800- to 900-pound (360- to 410-kilogram) beefalo that has been roaming the woods in western Connecticut since it escaped on its way to a slaughterhouse has been captured, police said. The beefalo — a cross between a bison and domestic cattle — eluded its handlers on Aug. 3, while being loaded off a truck at a meat processing business in Plymouth. Nicknamed “Buddy," his adventures, including appearances on a wildlife camera set up by police and failed attempts to lure him into a pen with food, gained widespread attention and inspired the creation of several social media accounts in his name. Plymouth police announced his apprehension on Wednesday, posting the animal's picture on social media with the word “Captured” stamped across it in red letters. A second photo shows Buddy in a pen. Buddy had wandered onto a farm in town and was hanging out with some cows when the farm owner snagged him and eventually got him into a trailer, Plymouth police Capt. Edward Benecchi told The Hartford Courant. “His capture was the result of a community effort from spotting him, feeding him throughout the winter and to the experts who were able to make the final capture," police said in the post. “We would like to thank all those would brought this adventure to a successful resolution.” Authorities decided early on in their search not to seek the death penalty for Buddy and have raised money for his continued care. Police said the beefalo will be heading to Massachusetts for a veterinary exam and will then be sent to the Critter Critter Creek Farm Sanctuary in Gainesville, Florida. “Without everyone’s donations this would not be possible,” police said. “Thank you for all your continued support and we wish Buddy safe travels and happy life.” The Associated Press
via TwitterIvanka Trump broke her post-inaugural social media silence with some personal news: she’s vaccinated. The former presidential advisor announced via Instagram, Twitter, and a statement sent to the AP that she had received her first Pfizer jab. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Ivanka Trump (@ivankatrump) “Today, I got the shot!!! I hope that you do too! Thank you Nurse Torres!!!” Ivanka captioned a photo. In the snap, she wears a tie-dye face mask, white t-shirt and jeans while a nurse in pink scrubs administers the dose. Per the AP, Ivanka received the vaccine in her adopted home state of Florida, where she moved with Jared Kushner and her children after leaving DC. Two sources said that she had the option to get her shot when her father was still in office, but chose to hold off. Ivanka Trump, Miami Beach Bum, Plots Her Next MoveUnsurprisingly, not all fans of the woman whose father consistently downplayed the pandemic and scoffed at basic COVID safety precautions are happy with this news. Her Instagram post has devolved into a deluge of complaints regarding her choice to get the shot. “Bummer. I was hoping you were above this kind of virtue signaling,” one person wrote on Instagram. “Hell no. Quit telling perfectly healthy people to take this so called vaccine,” another added. The resounding agreement in Ivanka’s comments section, per a few more Instagram users: “Disappointing.”There were similar musings on Ivanka’s Facebook and Twitter announcements. “Love you! But going to decline,” a person wrote on Facebook. Former vice president Mike Pence got his shot back in December via a televised press conference, for which he wore a rather unfortunate short sleeved shirt. Donald and Melania Trump received theirs, too, before leaving office in January—though they did not publicize the event and news broke after President Biden’s inauguration.

The Democratic chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee said on Wednesday he and other lawmakers were concerned about the Biden administration's decision to go ahead with a weapons sale to the United Arab Emirates and would review the transactions. Reuters reported on Tuesday that the Democratic president's administration had told Congress it was proceeding with more than $23 billion in weapons sales https://www.reuters.com/article/idUSL1N2M6319 to the UAE, including advanced F-35 aircraft, armed drones and other equipment. The sale was reached in the last weeks of former Republican President Donald Trump's administration and finalized only about an hour before Biden took office on Jan. 20, and the Democrat's administration had "paused" it in order to conduct a review.
BROOKLYN CENTER, Minn. — A white former suburban Minneapolis police officer was charged Wednesday with second-degree manslaughter for killing 20-year-old Black motorist Daunte Wright in a shooting that ignited days of unrest and clashes between protesters and police. The charge against former Brooklyn Center police Officer Kim Potter was filed three days after Wright was killed during a traffic stop and as the nearby murder trial progresses for the ex-officer charged with killing George Floyd last May. The former Brooklyn Center police chief has said that Potter, a 26-year veteran and training officer, intended to use her Taser on Wright but fired her handgun instead. However, protesters and Wright’s family members say there’s no excuse for the shooting and that it shows how the justice system is tilted against Blacks, noting Wright was stopped for expired car registration and ended up dead. “Certain occupations carry an immense responsibility and none more so than a sworn police officer,” Imran Ali, Washington County assistant criminal division chief, said in a statement announcing the charge against Potter. “(Potter’s) action caused the unlawful killing of Mr. Wright and she must be held accountable.” Intent isn’t a necessary component of second-degree manslaughter in Minnesota. The charge — which carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison — can be applied in circumstances where a person is suspected of causing a death by “culpable negligence” that creates an unreasonable risk and consciously takes chances to cause a death. Potter, who was being held on $100,000 bail, was scheduled to make her initial court appearance Thursday afternoon. Her attorney did not respond to messages from The Associated Press. Potter, 48, and Police Chief Tim Gannon both resigned Tuesday, a day after the City Council voted to fire the city manager, who controls the police force. Acting City Manager Reggie Edwards said Wednesday that because Potter resigned, she is entitled to “all accrual and benefits that is due.” Mayor Mike Elliott has said that the city had been moving toward firing Potter when she submitted her resignation. Police say Wright was pulled over for expired tags on Sunday, but they sought to arrest him after discovering he had an outstanding warrant. The warrant was for his failure to appear in court on charges that he fled from officers and possessed a gun without a permit during an encounter with Minneapolis police in June. Body camera video that Gannon released Monday shows Potter approaching Wright as he stands outside of his car as another officer is arresting him. As Wright struggles with police, Potter shouts, “I’ll Tase you! I’ll Tase you! Taser! Taser! Taser!” before firing a single shot from a handgun in her right hand. The criminal complaint noted that Potter holstered her handgun on the right side and her Taser on the left. To remove the Taser — which is yellow and has a black grip — Potter would have to use her left hand, the complaint said. Wright family attorney Ben Crump said the family appreciates the criminal case, but he again disputed that the shooting was accidental, arguing that an experienced officer knows the difference between a Taser and a handgun. “Kim Potter executed Daunte for what amounts to no more than a minor traffic infraction and a misdemeanour warrant,” he said. Experts say cases of officers mistakenly firing their gun instead of a Taser are rare, usually less than once a year nationwide. Transit officer Johannes Mehserle was convicted of involuntary manslaughter and sentenced to two years in prison after responding to a fight at a train station in Oakland, California, killing 22-year-old Oscar Grant in 2009. Mehserle testified at trial that he mistakenly pulled his .40-calibre handgun instead of his stun gun. In Oklahoma, a white volunteer sheriff’s deputy for Tulsa County, Robert Bates, was convicted of second-degree manslaughter after accidentally firing his handgun when he meant to deploy his stun gun on Eric Harris, a Black man who was being held down by other officers in 2015. Potter was an instructor with Brooklyn Center police, according to the Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association. She was training two other officers when they stopped Wright, the association’s leader, Brian Peters, told the Star Tribune. Brooklyn Center announced a curfew of 10 p.m. Wednesday — the fourth night in a row that the city has taken that action. Elliott, the mayor, urged people to protest without violence, saying “your voices have been heard.” Outside Potter’s home in Champlin, north of Brooklyn Center, concrete barricades and tall metal fencing had been set up and police cars were in the driveway. After Floyd’s death last year, protesters demonstrated several times at the home of Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis officer now on trial in Floyd’s death. About 90 minutes before Tuesday's curfew, state police announced over a loudspeaker that the demonstration outside the city's heavily guarded police headquarters had been declared unlawful and ordered the crowds to disperse. Protesters launched fireworks toward the station and threw objects at officers, who launched flashbangs and gas grenades, then marched in a line to force back the crowd. The number of protesters plummeted over the next hour, until only a few remained. Police also ordered all media to leave. Brooklyn Center, a suburb just north of Minneapolis, has seen its racial demographics shift dramatically in recent years. In 2000, more than 70% of the city was white. Today, a majority of residents are Black, Asian or Hispanic. However, Elliott has acknowledged that the police force has "very few people of colour.” ___ Bauer contributed from Madison, Wisconsin.

A drive-thru COVID-19 vaccination clinic in Howard County might be small when compared to the state's mass vaccination sites, but it's key to help address the gap in Maryland's vaccine equity, officials said.
