Did the coronavirus originate in animals or leak from a Chinese lab? Governments and health agencies around the world have been trying to answer that question since the COVID-19 pandemic began.
About 30 U.S. studies testing gene therapy to the brain for various disorders are ongoing, according to the National Institutes of Health.
As COVID-19 surges in China, the U.S. is expanding its traveler surveillance program, an early warning system for detecting new variants.
The omicron variant is driving U.S. COVID-19 case counts higher in many places just in time for the holiday season.
Svante Paabo spearheaded the development of new techniques that allowed researchers to compare the genome of modern humans and our closest extinct relatives, the Neanderthals and Denisovans.
Two new studies provide more evidence that the COVID-19 pandemic originated in a Wuhan, China market where live animals were sold, bolstering the theory that the virus emerged from the wild rather than escaping from a Chinese lab.
The U.S. may be heading into another COVID-19 surge, with cases rising nationally and in most states after a two-month decline.
Two new British studies provide some early hints that the omicron variant of the coronavirus may be milder than delta.
Omicron, even if it proves milder on the whole, may disarm some of the life-saving tools available and put immune-compromised and elderly people at particular risk as it begins a rapid assault on the United States.
Up to now, the world has been slow to react to each coronavirus curveball. This time an early warning from South Africa and Botswana might have offered important head start.
