While the coronavirus pandemic is far from over, the end is finally in sight now that several potential vaccines appear to be both safe and effective. AstraZeneca's (NASDAQ: AZN) coronavirus vaccine candidate may not have been the first one preliminarily proven effective, but it could still be a best-seller on the market next year.
Plant-based alternatives to meat are a rising trend in the food industry. While there are many players in the space, two of the most recognizable brands are Impossible Foods and Beyond Meat (NASDAQ: BYND), so investors assume these are cutthroat competitors. If Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods aren't competing, then who (or what) exactly is the antagonist in this story?
Coronavirus cases are off the charts, and Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has sounded the alarm. He discussed COVID-19 and the impact on the African-American community with Byron Allen on theGrio, and said we are, as a nation, in a bad place.. "We're in a very precarious situation in that if you look at the slope, the trajectory of the curve, that's gone up now in what I would consider the third surge that we've had," said Fauci. "Yesterday we had 2,000 deaths, we've had quarter of a million deaths total, a bit more, more than 12 million cases approaching 13 million cases, more than 80,000 hospitalizations. That's a bad situation to be in." Read on to hear which states he's worried about, and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus. 1 Dr. Fauci Said Montana "Shouldn't Even Be in That Risky Situation" Dr. Fauci was asked about rumors of people dying in the streets. "The now classic iconic story," says Dr. Fauci, "that was told on NPR just a couple of weeks ago, the largest health facility in Montana, in Billings, that has 25 ICU beds at one point at 40 plus ICU patients. So they had to put the patients, no, not on the street, but they had to put them in non-ICU rooms, you know, recovery rooms and things like that. And they had to get people taking care of people in ICU beds that were not specifically trained to take care of individuals in an ICU situation. So that's the kind of thing that almost certainly is going to get rectified if resources centrally will be put in, but you shouldn't even be in that risky situation. We shouldn't have to be there." 2 Dr. Fauci Mentioned Idaho When Listing Places He's Worried About "Idaho's COVID-19 death toll surpassed 900 residents on Wednesday after 20 new deaths were added statewide," reports the Idaho Statesman. "COVID-19 is the sixth-leading cause of death in Idaho in 2020, close to overtaking cerebrovascular disease (strokes and brain aneurysms) for fifth, according to the latest data from the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare. Diseases of the heart rank No. 1 in Idaho."RELATED: COVID Symptoms Usually Appear in This Order, Study Finds 3 Dr. Fauci is Concerned About South Dakota "North and South Dakota, with a combined population of just over 1.5m, have become an unlikely hotbed of a global pandemic," reports the Financial Times. "South Dakota has a positivity rate of more than 43 percent of those tested, according to Johns Hopkins University. That is among the highest in the nation and compared with about 3 percent in New York. North Dakota, meanwhile, was recently found to have the highest Covid death rate per capita in the world."RELATED: Nurse Says COVID Patients Claim "It's Not Real" Before Dying 4 Overall, Dr. Fauci is Concerned There's a Strain on the Healthcare System Fauci said the virus is "straining the system in some areas of the country. I mean, when you look at these areas that really got hit early on—the New Yorks, the Chicagos, the New Orleans, the Bostons, and those places that—they never were overrun, but they came close to it. So they have with the help of the federal government and what their own local help have gotten enough backlog and reserve of things like beds, and they can always expand and surge in personnel. The thing we're worried about is in the States with a population that isn't as dense as some of the States, particularly those in the Northeast." 5 Dr. Fauci Says "We Can Turn Things Around" "I believe that we can turn things around," Fauci told Allen. "And if you have a really good attention to the public health measures, I believe we can prevent the acceleration of that surge that we're seeing." So do things "like wearing masks, uniformly; keeping distance; avoiding crowds in congregate settings, particularly indoor; washing hands frequently" and to get through this pandemic at your healthiest, don't miss these 35 Places You're Most Likely to Catch COVID.

As coronavirus cases and hospitalizations rise identifying COVID-19 symptoms has never been more important. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there is a wide range of symptoms reported by those who have been infected with the virus. And, while the average incubation period is around 5-6 days, some people experience signs of the infection as soon as two days after exposure. Here are 11 early signs you should look out for, according to some of the nation's top medical experts. Read on to discover the warning signs so you can seek help when necessary, and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus. 1 You Have a Loss of Taste According to Amir Masoud, MBBS, a Yale Medicine gastroenterologist, one of the earliest symptoms of COVID-19 is loss of taste. Also called ageusia, this symptom can appear in as little as two days after exposure. And, according to "long haulers"—a term used to describe those who don't fully or immediately recover from the virus—the symptom can linger for months on end. 2 You Have a Loss of Smell Along with loss of taste, Dr. Massoud says that those infected with the virus might experience a loss of smell, also called anosmia, early in the infection. "As the coronavirus infects the body, it invades your olfactory organ, which is responsible for your sense of smell, and damages the blood vessels feeding this organ," explains William W. Li, MD, internationally renowned physician, scientist and author of the New York Times bestseller Eat to Beat Disease: The New Science of How Your Body Can Heal Itself. As a result, you may not be able to smell normally. "If you have this in conjunction with any of the other symptoms, it's best to let your doctor know right away," he suggests. 3 You Have Diarrhea While less common than loss of taste or smell, gastrointestinal issues can be an early sign of coronavirus says Dr. Massoud. One of them is diarrhea. 4 You Have Nausea The second gastrointestinal symptom that can be an early sign of COVID is nausea, Dr. Massoud reveals. RELATED: COVID Symptoms Usually Appear in This Order, Study Finds 5 You Have Fatigue According to a study published in JAMA, one of the most common early symptoms of the virus was fatigue, reported by over 68 percent of those surveyed. However, the feeling of being excessively tired is rarely independent of others, points out Dana Mincer, DO, Amwell Family Physician and Urgent Care Doctor. "Fatigue is usually paired with something else — a low grade fever to a high grade fever and body aches," she explains. 6 You Have a Dry Cough A dry cough—"one that does not produce mucus," per Dr. Mincer—is another early sign of the virus. "The SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus that causes COVID-19 is a respiratory virus, so it's no surprise that the majority of people who are infected have a cough," Dr. Li adds. According to the survey, over 60 percent of those surveyed identified it as a symptom. 7 You Have a Fever While a fever can signify a variety of ailments, as it is a sign the body is fighting off an infection, over 55 percent of people surveyed claimed it was an early symptom of COVID. According to Dr. Mincer, coronavirus fevers can vary in temperature from low-grade—99.5 to 100.3—to high. And, like a fatigue, a coronavirus fever is usually paired with other symptoms. When should you be concerned? "Take your temperature and if it's 100.4˚F, you should monitor and if persistent, call your doctor to check in," Dr Li suggests. However, keep in mind that not everyone with COVID-19 develops a fever, and there are many other illnesses besides COVID that cause fever, especially during flu season. 8 You Have Muscle or Body Aches Feeling pain in your body could mean you are sick with COVID. According to the survey, nearly 45 percent reported muscle or body aches. Again, Dr. Mincer points out that this symptom is rarely independent if it is related to a COVID infection. 9 You Have a Headache Pay attention to any headaches you experience. According to the survey, nearly one-third of coronavirus patients report a headache. RELATED: Dr. Fauci Says Most People Did This Before Catching COVID 10 You Have Shortness of Breath Shortness of breath is one of the virus' defining symptoms. "About half of my patients experience respiratory symptoms that range from mild to severe," explains Mincer. This type of manifestation of the virus generally takes about 5 days post infection to arise, which she explains, is when more serious cases can be identified. "If you are going to have severe symptoms, day 5 is generally when they present," she maintains. According to a study published in The Lancet, most hospital admissions occur around day 7 or after. 11 You Have a Sore Throat Around a third of coronavirus patients report a sore throat. However, Dr. Mincer points out that some are more of a secondary symptom, "possibly as a result of the dry cough irritating their throat." She also explains that a coronavirus sore throat is different from other infections, including strep, as the throat will usually appear red and inflamed instead of visual white patches on the tonsils or red spots on the roof of the mouth. RELATED: 7 Side Effects of Wearing a Face Mask 12 What to Do If You Have These Symptoms Contact your medical professional immediately to discuss getting tested—and stay at home alone until you get word. As for yourself, do everything you can to prevent getting—and spreading—COVID-19 in the first place: The nation's top infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci strongly recommends to wear your face mask and avoid crowds, social distance, only run essential errands, wash your hands frequently, and to get through this pandemic at your healthiest, don't miss these 35 Places You're Most Likely to Catch COVID.
