Another Inuvik resident has tested presumptively positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday, but the case poses no threat to the public, according to a news release from the N.W.T.'s Office of the Chief Public Health Officer.The release states the new case is related to last week's case in which another Inuvik resident who had traveled to the town from Alberta by road was confirmed positive for COVID-19."Public health has determined there is no risk to the public as the individual has been self-isolating appropriately since returning from travel," said Tuesday's statement.It said contact tracing has been completed and that the test will be validated at the Stanton Territorial Hospital in Yellowknife.The statement also said the individual is being monitored and is doing fine.Earlier news release sent in errorThe news release was the second one issued by the N.W.T. public health on Tuesday — though the first was sent in error.A release issued early Tuesday afternoon stated an Inuvik resident was confirmed to have COVID-19. Less than half an hour later, public health asked media outlets to "disregard and delete" that release.Later on Tuesday afternoon, the office of the N.W.T. chief public health officer said the initial release had been sent in error, in anticipation of a test confirming COVID-19."We are committed to doing right by residents of the Northwest Territories by providing timely, clear, and accurate communications. In this instance, we failed. We deeply apologize for the confusion this has caused."The later release said the office is already taking steps to make sure such errors don't happen again.

PHILADELPHIA—Hundreds gathered in West Philadelphia on Tuesday to protest the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr, a 27-year-old Black man, hours after ferocious unrest in response to the incident sent a chunk of the city into chaos.In video captured by an eyewitness and posted to social media, police on Monday afternoon fired several shots at Wallace Jr., who was seen approaching the officers with a knife—and whose mother was on hand, pleading for de-escalation. Two officers, whose names have not been released, each fired about seven times, police announced at a Tuesday press conference. According to Wallace Jr.’s family’s attorney, Shaka Johnson, the family contacted emergency services for assistance with an ongoing mental health crisis, and the Philadelphia Inquirer reported that officers had visited the family home twice that day before the shooting.Wallace Jr., who reportedly had seven children and whose wife was expecting, was transported to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Within hours of the shooting, protests kicked off, and while they began peacefully, tensions surged, with social media footage showing police beating protesters and protesters throwing objects—including bricks—at cops.The difference from a wave of local unrest after the police killing of George Floyd in May: a hotly-contested presidential election centering in no small part on law-and-order was now in its final days.Video Exposes Proud Boys and ‘Extra-Friendly’ Philly Cops“I hope there’s no looting or rioting because that’s not what this is about. This isn’t about taking away from the community or the people of West Philly,” Brittany Meyers. 28, of West Philadelphia, told The Daily Beast. “But I will defend my home against these cops. And whoever gets in office next has to address this racism.”At the peak of the mayhem late Monday and early Tuesday, a local news van was damaged and at least one police car was set on fire. By the end of the evening, according to the most recent release from the Philadelphia Police Department, 91 people were arrested and 30 officers were injured, including one officer who was hit by a car at 52nd and Walnut Streets.Still, protesters were leery of a president who has repeatedly singled out their polling places for scrutiny from his rabid fans, again tweeting on Tuesday, “Philadelpiha [sic] MUST HAVE POLLWATCHERS!”“Philadelphia is sick and tired of being sick and tired,” J.T. Hall, 30, told The Daily Beast. “And it doesn’t help that we have a president that says, you know, ‘Bad things happen in Philadelphia.’ It needs to stop.”Hall said he turned out to protest after watching what he described as “the rebellion” play out last night.“It’s not looting. It’s a rebellion,” he said. “You want to take our lives? We’ll hit you in your pockets.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

The North America intraoperative neuromonitoring market is expected to reach US$ 1,874. 02 million by 2027 from US$ 1,029. 17 million in 2019; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 7. 9% from 2019 to 2027.New York, Oct. 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report "North America Intraoperative Neuromonitoring Market Forecast to 2027 - COVID-19 Impact and Regional Analysis By Product ; Source ; Application ; Modality ; and End User, and Country" - https://www.reportlinker.com/p05978901/?utm_source=GNW The intraoperative neuromonitoring market in North America grows primarily due to rising incidences of neurological disorders and increasing technological advancements in the field of neuromonitoring; however, the lack of skilled professionals restrains the growth of the market. Additionally, increasing research activities in nerve monitoring field and integration of artificial intelligence (AI) technology with neuromonitoring are expected to fuel the growth of the intraoperative neuromonitoring market during the forecast period. Intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring (IOM), an integral part of most of the surgical procedures, prevents the neurological damage that may cause during surgeries.It also identifies the neural structures, thereby preventing the post-operative impairments. IOM employs a wide range of modalities such as motor evoked potentials (MEPs), somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEPs), electroencephalography (EEG), electromyography, brainstem auditory evoked potentials (BAEPs), and visual evoked potentials (VEPs). Neuromonitoring provides real-time alerts during the surgery and helps the surgeon make informed decisions to avoid neural injuries; also, many integrated technologies enhance the patient outcome. Many studies demonstrate that a combination of advanced optical imaging with an AI algorithm generate an accurate, real-time intraoperative diagnosis of brain tumors. For instance, Nervio has developed an innovative, autonomous, and intraoperative neuromonitoring solution by using AI technology.The system offers real-time alerts and clinical recommendations during the surgery. The company aims to make neuromonitoring accessible and affordable.Moreover, Al is increasingly being utilized in treating neurological disorders. For example, in October 2019, Henry Ford Health System and Mon4t launched a pilot study related to AI and Parkinson’s disease. Thus, these innovations drive the growth of the market. The patients who go through critical surgeries such as spinal surgery, neurosurgery, or ENT surgery need physical attention and are required to undergo a few procedures in clinics/hospitals.The procedures include intraoperative neuromonitoring by systems, services, and accessories. During surgical treatments and other procedures, doctors and healthcare specialists are in direct contact with patients.Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic situation in North America, it is crucial to maintain social distancing in order to avoid direct exposure to body fluids. Considering these facts, many hospitals and clinics are hesitating to schedule these surgeries unless it is critical. Therefore, this scenario affects the growth of the intraoperative neuromonitoring market in North America. In 2019, the systems segment accounted for the largest share of the North America intraoperative neuromonitoring market.Systems in intraoperative monitoring have become a crucial factor in neurosurgery as these offer an early warning concerning motor and sensory functions during surgery, thus it yields better results and avoids post-operative neurophysiological deficits. Moreover, market players are continuously developing advanced products to gain high market share. A few major secondary sources referred to while preparing the North America intraoperative neuromonitoring market report are World Health Organization (WHO), Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Orthopaedic Research Society, Canadian Patient Safety Institute (CPSI), and American Association of Neurological Surgeons.

There are significant problems with the availability and quality of COVID-19 data in England, British researchers said on Wednesday as they launched a dashboard to help make sense of the patchwork of stats. The COVID Response Evaluation Dashboard (COVID RED) presents available statistics from Public Health England (PHE), the Office for National Statistics (ONS) and the National Health Service (NHS) and also highlights where more data are needed. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has introduced a three-tier system of local lockdowns for England in a bid to tackle local flare-ups in infections while avoiding a new national lockdown.
Australian account of Scott Morrison's talk with Boris Johnson omits reference to net zero emissions. UK record of conversation stresses ‘ambitious targets to cut emissions and reach net zero’, but account released by Australian PM’s office does not mention the target

Roughly 20 Royal Newfoundland Constabulary officers were "threatening" to arrest Dominion strikers at Weston Bakeries in Donovans Business Park Tuesday night if they didn't move from the picket line, according to a union representative. Dominion workers vacated its secondary picket line at the Loblaw Companies Limited distribution centre overnight Sunday and were hit with an injunction Monday morning preventing them from picketing outside.Union members moved locations and set their target to Weston Bakeries, owned by the Weston family, the owners of Loblaw. "Loblaws hasn't taken us to court, there's no injunction. They've had two days to file an injunction. They haven't done that," said Chris MacDonald, assistant to Unifor national president Jerry Dias and lead negotiator for Dominion workers during the strike."We've complied with every injunction we've ever had and it's a shame that the company is relying on the St. John's police here to do their dirty work."MacDonald said police told him they were preparing to arrest people for blocking trucks exiting the property. He said he's not sure why police are trying to enforce an injunction that doesn't exist, and the reason he was given is that police are enforcing the Highway Traffic Act. The union said the picket line outside of the bakery is peaceful. "We're in the driveway. We're not even on the road," MacDonald said. Hoping to a get a deal doneLoblaw lost against dozens of other injunctions it filed on Monday which would have prevented striking employees from popping up at other locations owned or associated with the business.It's not clear if Weston Bakeries was among that list, but 30 Shoppers Drug Mart locations, three No Frills stores, three independent grocers and the company's wholesale club store were. The injunction on the distribution centre won in court. Dominion employees have been on the picket line since August, calling for more full-time jobs as the union says more than 80 per cent of workers are part time and 60 full-time jobs were converted into part-time jobs in 2019. MacDonald said picketers are preventing trucks with product from exiting Weston Bakeries to try to get Loblaw back to the bargaining table. "We've booked rooms at the St. John's Sheraton tomorrow. We've tried to get them back to the bargaining table, we've booked rooms, we've brought our bargaining committee in from all over the province," he said. "We're going there prepared to get a deal. Instead of telling us that they're coming to get a deal, Loblaws is relying on the police to do their work here. And instead of getting back to the bargaining table they'd rather put us through this."Picketers told CBC News nobody had been detained as police began clearing out shortly after 8:30 last evening. Some police units remained on scene. CBC News has requested comment from both the RNC and Loblaw's Atlantic director of corporate affairs. Read more articles from CBC Newfoundland and Labrador
The euro fell against the dollar on Wednesday after a media report that France's government is leaning toward reinstating a national lockdown to curb a resurgence in coronavirus infections. The dollar strengthened slightly against other major currencies, but sentiment for the greenback is turning bearish due to uncertainty about the outcome of the U.S. presidential election next week. Traders are bracing for more volatile trade in currency markets because the coronavirus is spreading rapidly again in Europe, Britain, and the United States, which threatens economic growth.

The Kelowna RCMP is investigating after someone sprayed graffiti with COVID-19 hoax messages on two sides of city hall Tuesday morning.The graffiti is in the form of phrases about the pandemic, including criticism of government measures to control the spread of the disease."This behaviour is criminal and we will be following all leads to determine who did this graffiti," said Cpl. Jocelyn Noseworthy of the Kelowna RCMP.On Tuesday afternoon, City of Kelowna staff worked to remove it.Mayor Colin Basran called the incident disappointing and said it could cost thousands of dollars to remove."Certainly, people are entitled to their right to protest, but this goes beyond that. I mean this is breaking the law," he said. "It's unfortunate that people have to go to that extent to get a point across."Basran said targeting the Kelowna city hall building is also misguided, as municipal governments are not responsible for pandemic restrictions."It also costs the taxpayers thousands of dollars. So I think everyone should be unhappy about it," he said.The RCMP is asking anyone with information about the graffiti to call the Kelowna detachment or the Crime Stoppers tip line.
